Formula One (And other Motorsport)

Post by pedned on Sun Mar 11, 2012 10:33 am

Well it's a week until the first race at Albert Park, Melbourne, Australlia.
So who do you fancy for the championship this year, and/or, who are you supporting?

Also what other motorsports do people on here watch/follow?

McLaren are claiming to be very confident and sure that they are at least on the pace, or ahead of the pace. But who was "sandbagging" in pre-season testing, and who was pushing for quick times?

I think the Red Bull's will be hard to beat again, especially now Vettels a double, back to back, world champion. He will be doing all he can to try to defend his title.

Ferrari are also saying they have the best car they've had for a few seasons, and even Massa and Alonso are saying they feel more comfortable driving the new car. So could they been in with a chance. I certainly hope so, being a Ferrari fan, and having supported Schumacher when he was with Ferrari, and moving onto Massa after Schumacher left. So it would certainly be nice to see Massa and Alonso perform well.

But speaking of Schumacher, both he and Rosberg are saying they feel more comfortable in this years Mercedes, and with the history, and past performances, I think both drivers could really perform with a quick enough car!

It's almost impossible to judge pace and reliability before the first race. But as I say, I'm behind Ferrari, as always!

No thanks. I'd rather watch the Jehovahs Witnesses being chased from the doorstep by a rottweiler. Much more entertaining.

I remember once when some knocked on the door during the Formula 1...
Michael Schumacher was winning at Spa, but it was down to the final pitstops. With them possible any lap soon, some Jehovah's or Bible Bashers knocked on the door. My Dad opened it...

"Hello sir, can I ask, do you believe in God?"
My old man promptly replied with
"Yes, he's currently winning the Belgian Grand Prix, and it's down to pitstops, pi$$ off and leave me the feck alone"
He then slammed the door in said persons face, just as both Schumacher and Hakkinen entered the pit lane, with around 8 tenths of a second separating them!!! Laughing

Unfortunately, the McLaren's seem to be on the pace!
Hopefully Ferrari can get sorted pretty quickly, and maybe we could have a Schumacher/Hakkinen type battle to see soon.
Between Ferrari and McLaren!

Must say, Was a pretty interesting race yesterday Smile That finish has to be one of the closest I've ever seen!

Although, My favourite part was;

Kimi Raikkonen; Why do I get all the dark blue flags?
Engineer; There for the cars behind you, They're not for you!

Laughing

Still, Touring Cars is back next week.....Proper racing! Razz
