TrueF1Grit, congratulations to your brother for doing so well in his karting :)
My desktop wallpaper is a blue linear geometric pattern. It came with Windows and is called “Crystal”. It sounds boring, but it’s peaceful and doesn’t lead to me staring at the screen for 30 minutes before getting anything done (a motorsport-related desktop wallpaper would carry that risk in my case).
My PDA’s wallpaper is not so limited because the screen is so small. It’s got a version of Bruno Mantovani’s “Fisico na Ferrari” picture, but with a recoloured background and slightly different lighting effects so that it was usable with the PDA’s theme.
Tangentially, my desktop screensaver is a Force India one from Belgium 2009.
Until Sunday I’d had this picture up to remind me of the days when Alonso would not just be known as the best driver, he’d get WDCs as well.
But since Sunday I’ve changed it to this one
Wonder what Keith has as wallpaper!
I usually have some picture of my favourite driver Heikki Kovalainen as my wallpaper. At the moment I am having this one: http://www.f1-fansite.com/wallpaper/2011-f1-season/f1-wallpaper-turkey-gp/desktop-wallpaper-f1-fansite.com-19-1280×1024.jpg
I have lately been using pictures with a small Lotus car vs large background on them.
Currently it’s a floor shot of Nico Rosberg around Valencia. Nabbed from this site of course.
Oh and Kubica’s R30 on my phone.
Keith’s pics are unfortunately too small for my desktop (1920×1200), so currently I’ve got this one http://www.darkhorse.com/Features/Desktops/1204/Buffy-Season-9
For a while I had Sauber’s Christmas pic as my wallpaper, which was their C30 with snowchains on in a snowy background.
Speaking of C30’s, that Polestar is awesome. If I had the money, I would totally commission one :D Wonder why Volvo didn’t sue Sauber for their car-name. Although, upon reflection, Ford had already sold the Volvo brand to Geely by the time this season started :p
I made an F1-related wallpaper expecting a topic like this to come up, so then I could post my wallpaper. But then yesterday I changed it, I didn’t see this topic.
Here is the picture I had as my wallpaper http://i.imgur.com/1hZlP.jpg
My favourite corner and my favourite ever f1 livery.
