I'm not a huge fan of sport; I should say that right now. For me a nice evening in with a book, or a political debate on the telly is much more fun. Maybe it's because I've never been very good at it, but I have never really understood what people see in sport. Except sometimes I do.

I was privileged to attend Silverstone last week for the UK National Finals of the GT Academy. This is an annual competition run in collaboration with Sony PlayStation and Nissan to source pure motor racing talent for those that have not had the opportunity to go through the more traditional channels of grass-roots racing.

The reveal of the F1 2013 has seen a somewhat frosty reception with a wide range of negative comments abound across the internet, whether these were justified or not, it certainly gives an idea on the wider public opinion of the series which has developed over recent years.

Last week the 2013 GT Academy launched in the UK on the PlayStation 3, the winner of which will gain a place in a real GT motor racing team and become a fully-fledged professional racing driver. It sounds straight forward but becoming the best is a lot tougher than many may think.

Why Silverstone Will Always Have a Place in My Heart

I write this from the famous Northamptonshire circuit of Silverstone. Geographically speaking though, I'm actually in Buckinghamshire, as the vast circuit straddles two counties. It's June, but the rain is pouring down. Outside, a cluster of umbrellas and rain-sodden macs bobs eagerly around at the paddock perimeter to catch a glimpse of one of 22 heroes who haven't even arrived yet. It's mad but somehow it makes perfect sense, and it feels like coming home. It can only be the annual occupation of the British Grand Prix.

Pirelli have admitted that a four-stop strategy is too many stops for a Formula One race and most of Sunday's runners did just that. Even a few three-stop strategies were changed on the fly to a 4-stop tactic to stay within tow of Ferrari's blistering pace.
