I spent most the weekend open mouthed at what was evolving in Melbourne, with my sleep patterns in tatters, basically becoming nocturnal to see the start of a new era of Formula One.
And what an era it appears to be. New (or should that be old) names at the front, past champions fighting back in the pack, overtaking!. The only thing that re-assured me I hadn't slipped into a parallel universe was that Nelson Piquet Jr managed to have an accident all by himself!
Meanwhile, in Virginia Mother Nature made her case for an appearance in the Power Rankings. She's not, don't worry, it's very difficult to rank mythical figures.
