  1. Hey All, Longtime no chat, hope you are all well. So I decided to book tickets to the Spanish GP at Circuit de Catalunya next month. My question as in the topic is, who is going to this years race and has anyone been before? Cheers Wez
  2. 4 Races In

    Could I just make a note here that only three teams have won... Mclaren, Mercedes, Red Bull and Alonso. Ferrari deserve absolutely zero credit for the Alonso victory!
  3. Replacing Massa

    Ferrari's true pace is closer to where Massa currently is (behind RB, Mclaren, Merc, Renault, Williams and Sauber). King Fernando is worth a good 2 seconds a lap, and dragging that piece of Italian rubbish through the point positions, he is worth his current salary times 10!
  4. Hey Buddy, yeah thought I better pop past good old TF1:) I'm not going to hold my breath regarding the new Ferrari updates as it's going to take more than a few updates (more like a new car) to make the F2012 competitive. Perhaps the Spaniard fans and myself can blow at the same time to give the Ferrari some half decent straight line speed?
  5. True this, so we good for at least 24
  6. Oh Happy Day

    Nick Fry or chubby Norbert.... Im not sure who is worse?
  7. The Most Beautiful Cars!

    I think it's smoking hot but would still probably take the DBS over it. Jeremy Clarkson & Tiff Needle (who usually hates Aston Martins) both rate the DBS as the best car in the world at the moment!
  8. Happy Birthday Eduardo

    Probably one of the greatest posters the forum has ever 'seen'! Happy belated birthday mate!!!
  9. Would this include the Merc safety car???
  10. Intra Team Fights

    They really look like they hate each other here.. Just media hype.
  11. Gosh I just hate it when Formula 1 and Chinese Football League clash on TV!
  12. Jenson Button

    Ummm I fail to see the point you trying to make here? 1. Alonso hasn't actually competed in a race in a Ferrari as yet. 2. Alonso beat Schumacher to the title in both 2005 & 2006 driving a Renault! As for this topic, it's clear the author had a vendetta against Button and that's old news, the fact is that Button isn't a bad driver by any stretch of the imagination. To win the title, no matter how fast your car you need to have talent. Button had the fastest car in 2009 and took advantage of that, Massa had the fastest car in 2008 and blew it. That said Button isn't one of the top 3 drivers in the sport.
  13. Claim To Fame

    I've had dinner at the table next to Shaun Connolly in Spain, had drinks with Nelson Piquet jr in SA and attended a Manchester United training session as a VIP in the UK
  14. Intra Team Fights

    Who cares what was or wasn't said by Massa, the simple truth is that Alonso is probably the best driver in formula 1 at the moment and Massa is very much over rated. I lost all faith in Massa when he totally folded and blew it in the 2008 championship. Alonso WILL wipe the floor with the Brazilian this season!!!
  15. Pre-Season Testing

    I was thinking just that! I'm glad for them. This could be down to the fact that Sauber had the best wind tunnel facility in formula 1 under Bmw so maybe it's finally getting results?
  16. Is Campos Dead?

    HAHA Indeed! Are Campos also only supported by a bunch of sailors though???
  17. Is Campos Dead?

    I actually liked the old multi-colour Benetton but the rest were indeed shockers that thankfully weren't around for long
  18. The Most Beautiful Cars!

    I still recon anything with an Aston Martin badge on it...
  19. Not In The F1 News

    Stefan's Crafty Container Bid Serbian F1 hopefuls Stefan GP announced they have sent a container of support equipment to the Sakhir circuit ready for the first race in Bahrain. Although they haven't received an entry for the race they are hoping they can step into the gap should USF1 or Campos Meta fail to turn up for the race. Nobody at the team was prepared to explain what the 'support equipment' was but a Customs official in Belgrade said the container manifest listed, three folding chairs, an eight-man tent, a pallet of Serbian beer, a week's supply of pot noodles and Kazuki Nakajima. Coughlan Returns To F1 - Almost To emphasise just how ready the Stefan GP team are to take up the F1 challenge, they issued a photograph of the team HQ to international media. The photo showed four men sitting in an office, one of them being former McLaren designer Mike 'Spygate' Coughlan. Stefan GP have aquired Coughlan's services along with the rights to run the 2010 Toyota chassis. Toyota weren't going to let them have it at first, but then they caught Mike in a photo-copying office just outside of Cologne... In Brief * After 40,000 people turned up simply to watch Fernando Alonso test a Ferrari in Valencia, organisers of the Turkish Grand Prix have asked him if he is prepared to switch nationalities. * Vitaly Petrov has revealed he is providing 7% of the Renault budget in 2010. The cash-strapped French team have also saved $1.2m by buying the Jordan paint scheme from 1997. *Peter Sauber has revealed that the VW motor group have made enquiries about taking a major shareholding in his team. This would make it the BMW-Sauber Audi Ferrari. d#ck Dastardly GP Stefan GP have slammed allegations that they are aiming to rename their F1 team d#ck Dastardly GP as highly defamatory. There have been suggestions down the pitlane that disgraced former McLaren man Mike Coughlan was going to team up with sacked Ferrari engineer Nigel Stepney in a "cheats superteam". They would recruit Nelson Piquet as their No.1 driver and employ Flavio Briatore as team boss. Fernando Alonso would be reserve driver. Launch Virgins There were red faces all round when the new Virgin motorsport team tried to launch their new digitally designed race car through a digital medium - the internet - and it froze. The embarrassment was doubly felt because Virgin media are an internet services provider. Subscribers to the Virgin broadband service predict the car will be very much like their internet service - increasingly expensive and nowhere near as fast as they say it'll be. The Car In Front Is A Ferrari And finally, after the first week of testing in Valencia Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenical has admitted that the rumours "swirling around" the Italian press are true. They are going to be introducing a B-spec car very shortly. A slower one to let the rest of the grid catch up.
  20. Is Campos Dead?

    Campos is very much alive... Jorge Campos the Mexican footballer who used to design his own kits... Who cares about the fly by night namesake F1 team!
  21. Popular Formula 1 / Auto Sport Magazines?

    Without doubt Autosport
  22. Winter Testing 2010 Season

    1 Alonso Ferrari 1:11.599 29 laps 2 de la Rosa Sauber 1:12.094 21 laps 3 Schumacher Mercedes 1:12.438 30 laps 4 Alguersuari Toro Rosso 1:12.576 37 laps 5 Button McLaren 1:13.498 +1.899 14 laps 6 Petrov Renault 1:14.009 +2.410 47 laps 7 Hulkenberg Williams 1:14.121 26 laps Not only was Alonso the fastest on Wednesday, he was significantly faster than the weeks overall fastest time set by his team mate... Bring on Bahrain
  23. So I know there are a lot of threads touching on particular drivers and what teams they might or will be driving for in 2010, but since next season could possibly have move teams changing their drivers than ever before I figured lets make a prediction thread for it. So here's my million dollar predictions: (Confirmed = *) Ferrari Alonso* and Massa* Mclaren Hamilton* and Raikkonen Renault Kubica* and Grosjean Red Bull Webber* and Vettel* Brawn GP Button and Rosberg Williams Barrichello and Hulkenberg Torro Rossa Buemi and Klien Toyota Glock and Heidfeld Force India Liuzzi and Sutil Other drivers in with a shout... Senna, Sato, Davidson
  24. So this sign has to take it for the first day at the Japanese Grand Prix... any chance the translator got it wrong?
