So you can create crappy pointless threads yet when someone makes a valid point they can't?

Or is it just that its not about your 2 favourite teams? (Hate is only a step away from Love ;))

Man, that's a pretty lame response :down: You just posted that Liar Liar topic... this is at least real F1 news.

That's 3 fines this weekend including Hamilton's for pitlane speeding on Friday. Plus the $50k (was that the figure?) from RedBull last weekend. Formula 1 has found a way to battle the economic slump! Profits are still down on 2007 though, roughly $100 million down... they're in need of another espionage saga to balance the books!

The "who gives a shit" was directed to the fact that these guys earn 5 million a year, so you honestly think they give a shit about these amounts.

If i had been talking to the OP i would have QUOTED him.

After the McLaren wallpaper topic some people see every post in a negative light before asking.

If Glock loses 5 places for this AND Brawn protest (and win) over the block he made on Rubens how many grid slots will he be demoted?

Maybe he should have given a little more information... then again you didn't exactly pile on the facts in your reply ;)

He won't lose grid positions I don't think, it's just a fine isn't it for speed. And a drive through in the race. I could be wrong though!

I don't mind these threads, but they really should have descriptive titles. The title should be 'Heidfeld and Glock fined for speeding in pitlane', as it is you need to click to find out if it's of interest or not.

There is nothing wrong with the thread, but it loacked some info, and so did my post.

1. People weren't sure for what Heidfeld and Glock where punished
2. People tought i was bashing you with my post, which was only intensified by my little adventure in another topic ;)

Or was that just Aus?

Because if you had to do that for a lot of threads, it would soon become an annoyance.

Of course it's a valid thread, I already practically said as much - just saying that more information is better, and would hopefully have prevented some of the flaming that happened here.

I think it is different for the race. I may be wrong, feel free to flame me if this is so!

I think they have different limits in the race and in the practice sessions.

A lot of drivers were fined yesterday, I hope that no one will be speeding tomorrow since the Race Control would not take any action during the race but the stewards will call the drivers after the race and ask them questions, then more drivers can be disqualified for telling a lie. :rotfl:

We really need to start a season long thread compiling the various infractions and maybe a season championship. 1 point for every $xxxx fined, per grid position lost, and in honor of future rule changes award a medal for total disqualification :D

If all the money goes to fund junior racers there's going to be some real aces in F1 in 10 years.
