I hope to get back to the Hyper-V , Windows and the rest shortly.

I read something Jeremy Clarkson wrote "It makes me so angry my teeth itch". That was how I felt after the what went on in Belgium with corrupt officials ruining things. Well today what happened in Italy has served as a reminder for why I feel passionate about formula one.  Doesn't matter if your a fan of any team, or none , Just fantastic. (since I'm posting while the drivers are still on the podium I won't spoil it for anyone who is watching later). Shame I broke my TV stick and its replacement is still in the post.

  • What a surprise to see a Formula 1 fan who also follows Hyper-V. Didn't think anyone in the US followed F1, especially on the west coast. This morning I got up at 5am to catch the Monza race which was decent.

    Your next step is try to get Microsoft to sponsor an F1 car. I know Dell and Lenovo already do.

    Keep up the great work.

  • Oh I so wish we would.

    The Engine management systems are branded "Microsoft" although they are made by McLaren electronics with the software at the back-end being Microsoft... I'd hoped to see our name on Engine covers at least. Supposedly the F1 console games are not going to be Playstation only in future - maybe we'll see some Xbox sponsorship. The support we give the teams generates case studies (Mclaren again) rather than getting the name on the car.

    You realize I'm not in the US. The Williams, Renault, Honda, Force India and Red Bull factories are all within an hour's drive of my house. (Williams' old factory was on my way to work).

  • Couldn't agree more, what a fantastic race eh?  I can't remember seeing two such great races in a row - despite the shambles of Spa.  AND we have a night race next! :)

    Didn't MS sponsor a 911 race car a few months ago?  I'm sure I saw something about it on the Forza Motorsport site.

    Great blog by the way :)

  • thanks Tom.

    Didn't see anything about the 911s although I think we did sponsor one of the BTCC teams a while back.
