Not if it rains. He's horrible in the wet. Got about as much sense of grip on the track as moles have vision.
yeah true, but looking out of the window it looks quiet a nice day today.

which its useful me weather watching at the other end of the country.

whoever it is sounds proper like becks. but then he said something about tail winds and **** so it can't be him. i think the sound of the cars is better tbh. nowt like a crisp morning on a fresh track and a screaming engine meandering round. and. no ****ing james allen. heaven.

Just heard it again and yes definitely agree it sounds like Becks, but hmm.

Yes the sound of cars is :love: They sound better in the practice seasons than they do on tv I think somehow. (Yes probably something to do with there being no James Allen word vomitting all over them)

Not entirely sure about that nowadays - he was rinsing Monaco remember until he scooched off at st devote, which is arguably less offensive than bashing into people or tail whipping barriers. Be interesting to see if that was a one-off though.
I am quite sure, when I remember Hungary in years before or Silverstone or any wet race when I see his sector and lap times.

Maybe he has got better, but he's still pretty bad.

meh, i caught the renault version a few weeks ago a silverstone (lunch break of the renault series day thingy) they didn't have the 100 metre track thingy (then again, they did have silverstone). had the whole driving sim and pitstop challenge. romain grosjean's first and second times in an f1 car. was last year's so he was caning the traction control everywhere - it's properly distinctive at the track. first time out and he was doing well - within a few seconds of last season's quickest renault of the weekend. oh, and he loved the donuts on the startline :p:

hehe don't get me wrong - i was properly surprised he was keeping going at monaco, and then literally gobsmacked he was going quick. also... tis worth remembering schumacher wasn't amazing in those races either (albeit not falling off the road). when shumacher got going quick (drying track, wets worn into slicks nearly) massa was going quicker... those bridgies were ****e compared to the michelin's.

Nakajima Sutil and Glock all getting out of shape in a very small amount of time. Good job there's some fair run off at Silverstone.

Err, Schumacher was going ahead of the field but slowet than Alonso.

Massa was positively going backwards compared to everyone.

I'm inclined to say the same :ninja:

What happened to Alonso just then in FP? I missed it, just saw the black smoke.

Woah major binned it by Massa there! Gonna take some work. What is up with them this morning? A lot seem to be at Stowe too.

by 'those races' i meant Hungary. schumacher went from 11th to 6th in a lap before Fisi knocked off his front wing... massa ended up with fastest lap.

edit: who jsut bigtime their ferrrari?
