  1. Best Joke Ever ;)

    He got his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left. "Amazing," he thought as he flew down I-75, pushing the pedal even more. Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw the highway patrol behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100mph, then 110, then 120. Suddenly he thought, "What am I doing? I'm too old for this," and pulled over to await the Trooper's arrival. Pulling in behind him, the Trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a reason for speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go." The old gentleman paused. Then said, "Years ago, my wife ran off with a Florida State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back." "Have a good day, Sir," replied the Trooper
  2. F1 Spy Rows Set To Reach Climax

    Surprise ! Surprise! Bernie's best mate gets off scott free !! FIA not really biased are they. Reno had the information - they were found guilty. FIA do not have to prove an advantage was gained - so they should be punished similar to McLaren. F1 is now a (bigger) laughing stock !!!!!!!!!!
  3. More On Renault Spy Scandal

    Totally irrelevant. How much if any advantage gained is difficult to prove as with McLaren. The issue is they had McLaren data internally on their computers, and by the sounds of it (allegedly!) it is roughly the same amount of data Stepney had of Ferrari's. Senior designers and other staff in Renault have (supposedly) seen multiple designs of McLaren's. As with the previous case Renault cannot use the excuses of only getting 'glimpses' of the drawings or of them not being of any use - the fact is they HAD them - same as McLaren. Therefore I cannot see how the FIA have to prove any advantage was gained - possession of such documentation is in breach of Sporting Regulation 151c - so no other penalty other than a similar one to that dished out to McLaren should be applied. But I have a suspicious feeling that Bernie might have some influence on the result in this one
  4. Mclaren Fined $100million.........

    I had a feeling Alonso was involved..................... Ignore..... cannot get graphics to appear...........................
  5. Mclaren Fined $100million.........

    Agreed. A sensible view of things. But as usual the FIA had the oppurtunity to end this whole affair but they have left the door open !! Instead of putting an end to it now -if the evidence is there punish Mclaren now - but why leave the door open for further punishment for next season !! IF McLaren were going to use Ferrari designs (and as yet no-one has confirmed this to be the case) on their car what use are they really going to be next year ?? I cannot comment on the severity of the punishment until I know all the facts.. but I doubt we will ever know all the facts....

  7. Spyker For Sale!

    I can count to 20 (as long as I take my shoes and socks off) so can I be your personal trainer and count you down in the pits !!!
  8. Questions About F1

    2. FIA Regulations concerning spare cars: FIA regulations state that drivers may have no more than three cars available for use at any one time. Usually a team will bring three or four cars to a race; a race car for each of its two drivers, and one or two spare cars for use by either driver. Use of those spare cars is subject to various restrictions. If a driver switches car between qualifying and the race then he must start the race from the pit lane. A change of car is not allowed once the race has started. As for What is torque? - sorry - must have fallen asleep in Physics lessons at school and missed that bit -

  10. No Penalty For Mclaren

    The report below is quite interesting:,18954,3261_2625548,00.html Quote below from Article: "Coughlan's evidence about McLaren has been undermined by his desire to go and work for somebody else, just as Stepeney's would have been if he revealed (or goes on to reveal) embarrassing secrets about Ferrari's past after his ominous quote to the Sunday Times; "I know where the bodies are buried." Prior to the hearing and in advance of all the court action in England and Italy, there have been constant, almost daily leaks to the Italian press revealing details and allegations surrounding the story. The worst of these has been from Mike Coughlan's sworn affidavit to the High Court - the document should be highly confidential. It seems that the desire to get the facts out into the public domain and put McLaren in a bad light has run ahead of the desire to individually punish the two men involved. Because now there must be a serious risk that Stepney and Coughlan cannot get fair trials because of all the prior media coverage - details that should only have been revealed in court. " Instead of letting all the evidence be presented in the hearing Ferrari seem determined to create a wave of prejudice against McLaren which may have backfired in the sense that with all the 'leaked' details of confidential documents (which could /could not have come from Ferrari) the constant reports/interviews crying foul and stating that they cannot understand how no punishment was dished out, that they themselves have been at the forefront of discrediting McLaren and have therefore helped in bringing the sport into disrepute. Now I do not support cheating in any way - and IF McLaren can be PROVED to have cheated then they deserve to be punished. But let's face it Ferrari are hardly 'whiter than white' when it comes to things like this are they: Quote from Article: And Ferrari, it now turns out, are not above spying themselves. Former Ferrari driver Mika Salo told Finnish newspaper Ilta Sanomat: "When I was driving for Ferrari (in 1999) we always spied on McLaren, listening to their radio traffic. After every practice session I had in front of me, on paper, all the discussions Mika Hakkinen had had with his engineer." (Though Ferrari have prompted him to amend this quote to emphasise that all the eavesdropping was accidental due to radio interference). Now did Ferrari go running to McLaren and let them know that they could overhear their radio transmissions or did they just carry on listening? Ferrari always try and bend/break the rules (depends on your viewpoint) and seem to get away with it in most cases, but when the shoe is on the other foot they cry foul and do all they can to get the world to listen to how they have been wronged !! I do not think that anything will come of the appeal, the result will be just the same, I think the only reason that it is going through is so the FIA can say we did all we can - nothing's changed - can we please get on with the championship now..
  11. No Penalty For Mclaren

    Another reasonable assumption is that he was going to use the information for his own (and Stepney's) gain - as he was looking to leave McLaren for a possible move to Honda. I cannot see what more the FIA could have reasonably done - maybe that is why they are now calling on the 2 individuals involved to a hearing.
  12. I have just seen on the BBC website that Albers has been dropped by Spyker. Who do you thing will replace him ? Sorry just seena similar thread - please ignore
