Formula 1/Motorsports

Post by rainking123 » Tue Oct 02, 2007 13:31

Just a little place for all the rev-heads here, (there must be more than 1)

Who really wants hamilton to win? ME I think he and Alonso should be disqualified for cheating along with the rest of the team.

While i can't say i want him to win desperately, i'd rather he won it than Alonso. In the tale end of the Schumacher reign i found myself quite taken with Alonso's style, i liked the fact that he let his results speak rather than getting caught up in Michael's retirement celebration. This year though, the only thing he's managed to do is act like a child and make himself look like a really sore loser.

Hamilton hasn't done anything that warrants himself being thrown out of the championship (likewise, on the track, neither has Alonso - but threatening to 'grass' Ron Dennis up was pretty tragic) but you can't argue with the team's punishment. I think the fact they didn't appeal speaks volumes about how close they were to being kicked out and probably how lucky they were.

When this season is over, and Rons sitting there with (probably) a wordl champion driver he'll consider himself to be a very lucky man.

Anyway, lets talk about Singapore next year - provisionally confirmed as a race, but still no word if it will be night race or not.

Oh, and Mark Webber vomiting inside his helmet last week, Eeuuugh

I just feel that in alonso benifited from the data in testing, which he as good as admited after recieving assurances from the FIA he wouldnt be penalised, he probably shared it with Hamilton. That said it is best to draw a line under it and look forward....

To the bmw/sauber era. they are gonna be so strong next year, almost makes me sad that BMW didnt put their $$ in earlier.

Singapore will be amazing, if its a night race even more so, they are doing testing of the lighting soon so we'll find out by the end of the month hopefuly, also got a new race at valencia next year, that one really doesnt put me up nor down.

As for Webber, yukyukyuk and good use of cussing on live tv too

I dont know if he'd have shared it with Lewis, if i had received something i knew i shouldnt have the last thing i'd be doing would be shouting from the rooftops and going round sharing it with anyone else. Especially if that other person had in a roundabout sort of way ruined my year.. I dare say Alonso (like everyone really) wasn't expecting Lewis to be that good/lucky this year and as the year went on i'm sure he'd have tried to keep as much as he could from Lewis. Still, like you say, old news now..

So i missed the race on sunday, what actually did Mark say?

I didn't see the race, but things aren't looking to great for Lewis now..

Mclaren will nobble Alonso's car in hope of Lewis winning, they'll both crash out and Kimi will sneak through.

Yeah, except that Mclaren did the wrong car!

Brazil was a great race, a great end to the (on track) season and Kimi winning was the only result that could have saved F1 heaps more criticism.

I think the season just fizzled out though, no-one expected Kimi to win so it was met more with shock and disbelief than wild celebrations, and of course fuelgate didnt help..

I'd say it's over now, they won't overturn the decision.. Hamilton will win next year, probably by quite some margin - reliability permitting. Lewis' dad actually summed it up best, (a whole lot better than the UK press and their failure accusations)

Next season should be good, be interesting to see what happens with Alonso, Jean Todt (maybe) leaving Ferrari, the night race; i hope Honda have a better season, Barrichello just did his first full season without scoring a point which surely needs to be improved on.

All in all, on the track this year, it's been great, hopefully next year can be better

I must say that I'm really looking forward to the start of the new F1 season. I thought last season was the best in years, and with the driver changes that have taken place this season could be even better.

I'm particularly looking forward to seeing how Nelsinho Piquet gets on, mainly because his name is fantastic.

Shitholes! That was well exciting!

Thank fuck it's back on BBC 1 next year, though. I always hated the ITV coverage.

God, did you see this, though?



In the old days (1991) they knew how to do montages. I recorded this onto video at the time and spent the next five years or so trying to find out what the music was:

I only ended up watching it because I was flicking through the channels and realised when it came on that it was the title-winning race but that was fantastic! Who knew how exciting the chances of potential rain could make something!

So seriously, what's all this about Button being the favourite for the first Grand Prix?
This is bad comedy.

Yeah, him and Rubens are the favourites. Hamilton is at 20-1 or something because his new car is a turd on wheels.

Theres some new aerodynamic fin on the Brawn cars that no other team are using, true to F1 form, everyone else is complaining about it even though it seems to be within the rules (well, in the rules that Ross Brawn has interpreted) Everyone apart from Jenson and Ruebens are sliding all over the place, but team Brawn seem to have it under control.

I still can't see Jenson winning though, pretty much because he's shit.

Hoo-hoo! It really doesn't, doesn't it?

Still, I'd probably still struggle.

I like that they've taken heed of the transport chaos caused by snow earlier this year and fitted all the cars with nice wide snowploughs. Forward planning.
