Some you win, some you lose

Great news yesterday for Silverstone - a ten-year guaranteed British Grand Prix, in a contract lasting up to 17 years. It's costing them £12m in the first year, and Bernie Ecclestone got his escalator - rumoured to be a 5% increase per year - but not the 7% or even 10% he'd wanted. Seems fair enough - 5% is a pretty good rate these days, at least until hyperinflation kicks in.

Less great is p53 of this morning's Metro (story not online), with this photo:

Congratulations to Jenson for winning the trophy, less so for accepting Jonah's curse - my money is now firmly on Lewis Hamilton to be the McLaren victor (though I think Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso have a good chance of the 2010 driver's title).
