Hi Rennies mill,
I seldom check the news in H.K. anymore, especially with the Aussi Rules prelim finals this weekend, plus the Rugby League Grand Final, plus the Wallabies game with the Springboks, plus last but definitely not least the GP at Spa. I used to look up scmp.com, but I gave it away because it just started to frustrate me. I still check the Heng Seng at netvigator.com though.
Regarding your model cars, I wish you luck. You obviously have an intense interest in certain cars.
As for Minardi, think of it this way - with that lousy donk at the back, they can still qualify well within the 107% rule. And next year, they will get Renault engines. Maybe Toyota will buy them out, who knows. With their limitred budget, they are doing wonders. Dollar for Dollar, I would say they are achieving far more than Ferrari, who have not won a WDC since Scheckter despite having all that money and great drivers in the team. This helps us to keep the faith.
