A European Grand Prix? Surely the European Union bureaucrats would never let it happen. Not when they have suggested laws like these...

The following things have been reported to be banned in at least one European school: making daisy chains (risk of picking up germs); playing hopscotch (risk of injury); making anything out of egg boxes (fear of salmonella); putting hands up (makes pupils who don't have the answers feel victimised); and throwing paper aeroplanes (might cause eye injuries)...

David Coulthard:

"Balance wise we were chasing some understeer in the morning then, as the conditions changed, we made some adjustments to the car so it came to being more rear limited at the end. There's still potential there to bring together the entire lap and obviously we're going to be in a tight bunch again tomorrow so, as always, it will be very important to hook it all up right in qualifying."

Mark Webber:

"That was a good session for us. I think we did everything we wanted and we got some really good data. Everyone got a little bit more running time on track than they expected, as the weather cleared and the track dried, and the car ran well so we're happy. I think we stand a good chance of getting into the top ten tomorrow."
