  1. Qualify Change

    Quali format 5 minutes shorter Today, the F1 commission came together and decided that the final session of the qualifying, also known as the super pole will be shortened by 5 minutes. After all it makes no sense to let 10 cars burn up race fuel to lower the weight of the car and therefore increase their chances for a pole position. Renault F1 team boss Flavio Briatore earlier proposed a similar change. Formula One is already expensive enough while burning unnecessary fuel is even worse for the environment. Apart from this, it was proposed at the meeting that Spa-Francorchamps should definitely return to the 18-race calendar of 2007, probably at the expense of Hockenheim. Fuji, meanwhile, looks likely to replace Suzuka as Japanese GP host. http://www.f1technical.net/news/3466 Well, 5 minutes less to watch them go around doing less i suppose. Assuming this is right.
  2. Dark Times Ahead For Mclaren

    Guess he does not know what word suspended means.
  3. New Mclaren Controversy?

    Also one has to ask who was chicken there: Webber or the guy who did that after Webber did not see?
  4. Coming Out Of Hibernation

    Did not F1 also have those press the button system about 20 years ago?
  5. Jean Todt Resigns From Ferrari

    It might be joke to you, but it is actually quite serious matter. Rally is even in worse condition than F1 imo and a former team boss would not hurt at helm of FIA.
  6. Countdown To The 2009 Season

    Too easy to decypher.
  7. Jean Todt Resigns From Ferrari

    One of the reasons Brawn did not stay at Ferrari was that he was not able to get team principal role. In light of that I do not see Todt heading to Brawn GP. However, he is great canditate to replace Mosley as he has both F1 and Rally background. Not many other canditates can compete with that.
  8. Wdc To Be Decided On Wins

    1999 with Schumacher out from several races. If by wins you can also add Malaysia win to him.
  9. First of all full first capital letter topic is irritating. Second, i will probably get up depending on when exactly is it.
  10. Dod Singapore

    My pick would be Piquet, that is perfect 2nd driver work.
  11. Penalties

    Nico definetly got just penalty -- he gained heaps from it. Without that SC incident pitstop he would never made it to podium. Kubica on other hand probably not. Overall this rule sucks i agree.
  12. Why Tracks Like Valencia Areo The F1 Circus.

    Valencia is in F1 due to Alonso.
  13. With Just 4 Races To Go...

    Notice it does not mention Kubica? Guess what that means
  14. 2008 Italian Gran Prix Thread

    Best quote in the Qualification: Coulthardin radio: "David, we have good and bad news. Good news: you are ahead of R
  15. 2008 Italian Gran Prix Thread

    This race is tough for both Hamilton and Massa for different reasons. Hamilton is expected to win this while Massa needs to stay utmost close to Hamilton at least. In my mind Hamilton 1. and Massa 2.nd would still be victory for Massa. The reason for this is bridgestone tyres supplied to this race are same as Spa which favor slightly Mclaren. Also it will probably be last 'cold' GP as well. My prediction: 1. Hamilton 2. Raikkonen 3. Massa 2 and 3 depending bit if Ferrari will go favoring or not. Kovalainen might also stir up something, but history so far shown he nearly always somehow screws up.
  16. Dod German Gp

    Pretty much agree with that. They did very well from their respective situation.
  17. Massa Wdc For 2008

    I can see Massa winning Wdc for 2008. I bet most of you thought he was goner after 2 races
  18. Finally! He Scores His First Points...

    Piquet will win championship before Kovy is all i am going to say on the subject. Another question is will either of them win it altough Kovy had far easier time last season, it is far simpler to be compared to Fisichella than Alonso. Also it is far easier to have first season with TC and great car like Lewis did. Same applies to lesser degree also to Kovy, Renault was not as good of course as Mclaren last season either.
  19. Where Is Ankit?

    Who the heck is Ankit?
  20. Driver Of The Day

    For reason you mentioned Trulli gets it. If he had passed him then Kovy had gotten it.
  21. Arrogant Lewis

    If he gets into last phase of qualification then he will start with the fuel he has regardless of penalties. I really dont think he will get P1 with full tank.
  22. Driver Of The Day - Turkey

    The point of driver of the day is to pick one actually. If you want several pick make it winners of Turkey or something. My own choice is rather difficult, not much to pick as everyone did mostly what expected. I guess i will give it to Rosberg for getting point and beating out Toyota. Alonso and Webber are also high on list.
  23. La Qualy Del Gp De Espa

    I see some still quote Alonso and take it for gold. One thing i figured out long ago is to take what Alonso says with grain of salt. I do not mean the last year thing by that, but the fact is he likes to play mind games with others.
  24. Mosley Vows To Quit In 2009

    Funny you should say that -- http://www.pitpass.com/fes_php/pitpass_new...es_art_id=34532
  25. Helps if you remove your helmet Or you fear you get honorary 31th place?
