The look on his face really does say "second is the first loser".

That's about as disappointed a 2nd and 3rd Q as you're gonna see... considering that they were relatively confident yesterday... frown.gif

And that was a helluva poor restart by Lew... 30t6p3b.gif

Getting stuck behind MSC drove me nuts. He wasn't being completely "illegal" with his blocking, which was the tough part... you can't give him a penalty for that! Cunning bastard... !
haha... you don't win 7 WDC's without knowing how to push that grey-area. Credit to him I suppose.

Damn, Seb was ridiculous today.  That pass on ALO on the outside/grass off of T3 (I think it was)... smiley: sick

This RB7 is just too good. He's might clinch the title in Singapore. This is insane. What a crash from Liuzzi.

The boy cried at the podium yesterday. Tears. That's the stuff legends are made of.
post #75 of 2349
Yeah, that kid is special. I still remember his maiden win at Monza a few years back when he was at Toro Rosso. And he's still young! sick.gif i just don't like the fact that he's pretty much untouchable this season. 100+ point lead over the next guy. sick.giflaugh.gif

He's good for the sport, and he was super cool on Top Gear. He just better not run away with the title again next year smiley: laugh.

Boullier sets Kubica deadline

'By the end of October I need to have clear confirmation'

"My issue is I cannot miss the opportunity to have Robert back, but at the same time I have to protect the interests of this team," Boullier is quoted by

Autosport. "I need to define the best driver line-up, or the best one I can afford

Button unimpressed by Schumacher

Brawn hails Hamilton battle as 'vintage Michael'

"I thought he was moving quite a bit with Lewis," the

Times quoted him as saying. "I had such a good run on him [Schumacher] and came on him so fast that he couldn't move a lot. It would have been very dangerous. But with Lewis he was moving across to the left and then to the right, which I don't think was all that bright. He always went to the right, then left and back to the right - not exactly what we agree is right. One move. Maybe he has just lost his memory."

According to Monza steward, Derek Daly...
http://twitter.com/#!/DerekDaly500/status/113682785507606528

Schumi should have had penalty for blocking in Monza - we blew it - Agh-


Fascinating... smiley: nerd

FIA steward for the Italian Grand Prix, Derek Daly, admits he and the other stewards missed Michael Schumacher's questionable move on Lewis Hamilton, and had they seen it, the German would have been penalised.

Former-F1 driver, Daly, released a statement explaining how and why they missed the incident, adding that they let FIA race director Charlie Whiting down.

“On lap 20, race director Charlie Whiting asked the stewards to look at an incident between Felipe] Massa and [Jarno] Trulli at the second chicane.

“While looking at the slow motion video of this incident, I missed the Schumacher/Hamilton incident that happened at that moment.

“When I looked at it again at home, I believe that Schumacher should have been given a drive-though penalty. He was warned repeatedly and this style of driving is not what you want the future generation of drivers to perfect.

“We as stewards probably let Charlie down with this one," he admitted.

The statement is unusual given that most driver representatives on the stewarding panel refuse to comment on incidents during the race.

Whatever. How could they have not seen it? The whole world saw it.

Anyway, Sam Michael will join McLaren next season. And Luca has gripes.

"The current Formula One is still too dependent on aerodynamics and cutting out testing during the season has put too much emphasis on simulation work," he added. "At the mid-point of the last decade, there was definitely too much testing, but now we have gone in the completely opposite direction."
I agree.

PS3 for me. I don't game on PC and don't own an X-Box. I suppose, if you do enjoy PC-racing, rFactor is the way to go... so I've been told.

Maybe I was spoiled by F1CE on the PS3, but F1 2010 just didn't do it for me. I'll get F1 2011 when it goes on sale, like all multi-platform games do.

As for PC gaming, I've also heard about rFactor, as well as iRacing, netkar pro, live for speed.....tons of games.

I'm leaning on getting it on PC since i can get it a bit cheaper and i just assembled a new rig yesterday. laugh.gifsmokin.gif I just hope they still support my Driving Force GT.

You never know... a street-circuit + the possibility of rain?  We're in for a crazy race.

^ you mean Seb. sick.giflaugh.gif

This weekend's race is probably the one i dislike the most on the grand prix calendar. I find it bland and soulless. Even the organizers seem to promote the attractions during the weekend more than the race itself. 30t6p3b.gif

Anyway, only a few days before the game is out. I built my rig in anticipation for Battlefield 3, so I hope it's more than enough! laugh.gif
