what a jerk, nearly chops Massa overtaking him just to go to the pits a corner later... :confused:


He was on a lap till he got Massa'd - Pitted after being held up.

But don't let facts get in the way of prejudice.

And he just got his second reprimand yesterday. Seriously, Checo...

Even Olivier Panis shook his head.

I think they are trying to get a wave around. Pic just got one.

Only two sessions and I think I've seen 10 weekends worth of drivers gesticulating and generally having trouble with slower traffic.

Should be an entertaining race :cat:


lamely quoting myself, but there's something about this track..

I think the race will be carnage.

Obviously I'm an Alonso fan so want him to beat Seb but for the sport an Alonso win with Seb third would make for a thrilling decider in Interlagos. Equal on points, whoever can finish ahead wins it!

I think it is totally okay for the sport if whichever team does the best job over the season wins the title. If a team does a tremendously better job than others, they totally deserve to dominate. If they all are equal, they all deserve to fight equally. I don't think we can speak for the sport that easily.

I didn't say anything about who deserves it. I said if they were equal on points it would make for a thrilling decide...I don't think anyone would dispute that?

He's the Grand Marshall and a fan favorite here in the U.S. Plus the camera loves him.

Do you guys think the Americans would have loved F1 more with last year's EBDs? Especially the Red Bull's one when off-throttle.

You said it would be good for the sport. I am just saying it is not that simple. The fair Gods would dispute that. Whoever is better should win it. If that means the championship gets over today, so be it. That is how the sport is.

14 laps for KAR, 13 for DLR. Both lapping outside the 107%.

They usually cook their tyres so bad and today seems to be optimal for that. That is how bad the combination of track and the tyres Pirelli have brought it.

I hope the first corner won't eliminate a significant proportion of the field.

Good job Pirelli, once again failed with choice of compounds. HARDS on track that is NEW, not rubbered and looks like smn would put oil on it, and in addition with 17C track?

They will need a frickin 2-3 laps to take the max out of Meds
