    I get that every so often on my iPad (and iPhone) due to it throwing up the nag screen suggesting I try out Tapatalk. That nag screen fails to load correctly, leaving a blank page. Presumably the nag...

    The article mentioned Paddon wanting to be running his own team around the world in the future. I wonder whether perhaps he could be working on a deal along the lines of running as the 3rd car on...
