A top idea from Giles Smith in the Times today:

"Mark Webber seemed to explode on turn three, momentarily shrouding the track in a cloud of smoke on a scale normally seen only when something goes wrong at an oil refinery. In fact, the car was merely clearing its throat ahead of the long season. But it did put a thought in ones mind. If each car were allowed to make strategic use of a smoke bomb, wed see some sport worth the name. The smoke could be in team colours."

Best daily newspaper for coverage of F1. Don't know what your problem is, although your remark is a bit old-fashioned. I was merely attributing the idea to the originator rather than claiming it as my own.
