This blog comes to you mid-train journey home. As much as I'm still fascinated by getting a train from Europe to the heart of London, it can't quite beat my outbound journey to the Belgian Grand Prix.

On Thursday morning at 7.30, I was genuinely standing outside the Houses of Parliament hitching a lift to Spa. The slight cheat, of course, was that I knew a certain Martin Brundle would appear at any moment in his E-type Jaguar, looking like Kings Lynn's answer to James Bond.

Hi everyone,

Hungary was another cracking race, wasn't it? I hope you enjoyed it and the coverage this weekend. I'll do a written blog a little later in the week. In the meantime, we thought you would be interested in meeting the people responsible for putting the show together, so I filmed this video blog on Sunday evening at the Hungaroring.
