It's a busy afternoon in a cramped and hectic Formula 1 paddock. We've managed to arrange a slot with McLaren's racing director Eric Boullier, but now he's delayed by a call - a theme that will characterise this long day.
When we finally sit down, we ask whether he's ready to answer your questions: "Yes, yes, fine... well, no actually. I have a meeting in 10 minutes that I can't postpone. But don't worry - I'll be available afterwards."
So we suggest a few questions now, before he points out the significance of his meeting. "I can't really tell you about it... but I have a few other teams coming here."
