In other words, the weather is miserable and England have been knocked out of the football.
Andy Murray is still in the Wimbledon draw and, of course, our fingers are crossed.
But it’s early days yet in SW19.
So shall we try and lighten the air and cast our eyes instead towards a place where deeds have been done of which we can feel justly proud? A place that is actually synonymous with national sporting over-performance? That place is Silverstone, venue for next weekend’s British Grand Prix – a race previewed, and celebrated, on Sky Sports F1 this coming weekend.
For starters, you can watch the last five races in full.
From 2007, when Lewis Hamilton was enjoying life as the nation’s new darling; through his incredible win in atrocious conditions the following year; from Red Bull’s emergence as a grandee up to the grandest team of all winning 12 months ago, we are showing each of them on Saturday and Sunday evenings.
You can also delve even further into the past with highlights of the 1950, 1958 and 1964 races, together with a tribute to Sir Stirling Moss, himself a two-time British Grand Prix winner.
