Mines one of the preset games for windows live avatars that I used as my F1Fanatic avatar when I first joined cause I couldn’t think of anything better. It’s kinda grown on me hence why I’ve kept it. :P
I recently modified my helmet to create a tribute to Badoer’s (like I previously did with de Angelis) and what better occasion to “wear” it as an avatar than the Italian GP, the race he was never allowed to take part in four years ago, the race where his negative record would have been broken, the race where, in front of his home fans, Luca would’ve won for Ferrari?
I couldn’t do nothing after yesterday’s news. I started liking Massa before I started liking F1, I owe him a lot and he is, and always will be, my favourite driver. The first I saw, the first I liked, the one I saw grow and fall, the one I saw the joy and sadness of, the one I cheered for six years and the one whose little successes were my own.
My avatar will be Massa’s 2013 helmet from now till the end of the season. Hoping I can bring him, for once, good luck, hoping he can, for once, get back on the top step of the podium, hoping he will, for once, put his own interest above that of his team mate, and hoping Ferrari will support him once Alonso is definitely out of title contention.
Thank you Felipe, see you next year stronger than ever! Good luck Kimi with the new (old) challenge, hoping you can teach Alonso a lesson!
I said I’d keep Massa’s helmet as avatar until the end of the season but given the circumstances I’ve changed it to de Villota’s for some time.
@fixy well done in this temporal change on your avatar (I noticed MDVillota’ helmet the first day you posted it) … BTW, when I see your avatar, whichever helmet you decide to post, I know it’s you. Just wondering why some people worry so much about Vettel’s usual change of helmets as if it was wrong, even I heard a (nonsense) rule could be stated to keep drivers from changing helmets… I liked Jenson’s zumo wrestlers choice yesterday! So let drivers drive with any design they want, as long as the helmet keeps its function of protecting the guy’s head.
@omarr-pepper thanks, I actually wondered if my “helmet changes” made me less recognisable. Of course the style is always the same and, strangely must I say, not so many people here use helmets as avatars, which obviously helps.
Marco Simoncelli tribute (two years without him on Wednesday)
My avatar for the Brazilian GP weekend is still Massa’s helmet, but this time the special edition design he will also be wearing this time around to salute the end of his Ferrari career.
Changed to wish Schumi good luck for his recovery.
Changed mine back to OG Geoff after my emotional split with Sauber.
Mine is Estonian racing driver Kevin Korjus driving in the rain in WSR during the 2012 season which was unfortunately not successful. I have been supporting him ever since he was 12 and racing in local karting series. I have full belief that he is talented and smart enough to be in F1 but I doubt if his bad luck allows him to get there. By smartness I mean staying out of stupid incidents like what Grosjean did in previous seasons. To me he seems a lot like Vettel only with worse luck.
I make a bit of a mistake with mine. It’s nothing particular, just a sniper kitty. :3
Except…. When I saw it I was on my dads computer, so I downloaded it to the desktop and put it on my profile…. Which is great. Except it was labeled “dangerous pussy”
About a week later I saw this and renamed it. I wonder if he opened it O.o
As everybody would recognise, mine is of Jorge Lorenzo. Firstly I admire him. Secondly, I admire the logo and lastly, it represents my character aptly (halo and devil’s horns)
My avatar is Schumi in Barcelona 96´ :) ……..”It was a demonstration of brilliance” ….
