@bradley13 I wasn’t referring to the one at the start of the video that ended with the title card, but I think the one that came after that – I don’t think it was present in the Italian race (and the previous ones).17th November 2014, 8:39 at 8:39 am #285669
Errr….that song at the start sounds a wee bit more Arabic and a wee bit less Chinese, @robocat , even if you come to me with proof that it was composed in China by a chinese who then recorded it in the same country.
But anyway, that was quite a good race. And maybe Westwood is better off without its owner commentating, judging by the race :)16th November 2014, 8:46 at 8:46 am #285665
Ah, the race is up, let’s see how it goes……9th November 2014, 9:50 at 9:50 am #284455
Just one thing: The music track should be from my favourite band: Rush (when a movie called “Rush” didn’t have anything from them it felt a bit unfair).
The 1st half of Xanadu (’77) would make a pretty good soundtrack for on-track battles, I think.
And the title track of their 2002 album Vapor Trails would be good in the credits or in a scene where a main character (read Button) is alone pondering over something (read his future after Honda withdrew)?2nd November 2014, 10:21 at 10:21 am #281853
Just like theEuropean GP being held in Asia, you mean? :)20th October 2014, 8:25 at 8:25 am #279422
What a race, thoguh it might give Bernie an inspiration for havign another attempt at that sprinkler thing.20th October 2014, 8:25 at 8:25 am #279416
@kanil I watched the 2011 Canadian GP until maybe 3.30 AM having got to wake up for school at 5. Races in the Americas start around midnight over here.
Admittedly I had had a bit of sleep before the race, but….15th October 2014, 8:34 at 8:34 am #278795
Get rid of double points (or double the race distance in Abu dhabi – it’d be even more of a lottery but at least it’d be fair), paint tarmac run-offs with some kind of colour (preferable green), live streaming licensed under a copyleft license (but with CGI) or a paid CGI-less feed (and drive TV channels to the latter one way or another).
Oh, and do the post-race interviews.
And a race in France.
And monsoon tyres.5th October 2014, 14:17 at 2:17 pm #277141
Watching a rerun of the 2008 Monaco and Canadian GPs after looking at an (months-old) edition of F1 Racing which had a cover about the 4 pre-Fuji 2007 title contenders, saw Kimi, and decided “This guy looks decent, I should support him”.
Yes, I’m young enough for something like that to actually happen as recent as 2008. And looking back that was a pretty embarassing way to get into watching F1.1st October 2014, 13:00 at 1:00 pm #276455
Instead of FanBoost why don’t they have the driver who gets the most vote get onto a different (rather small) spot on the podium (unless he gets any of the proper 3 places), and get a throphy for most votes and a bottle of champagne (in the case of the vote winner being in the top 3 (s)he gets 2 throphies and 2 bottles).
No on-track gimmicks, no on-track farce, no championship skewing, but still with voting, and results of it to be seen by the fans, and thus “interaction”.1st October 2014, 12:47 at 12:47 pm #276454
Excuse another mad prediction from me: GRO to Woking.30th September 2014, 18:38 at 6:38 pm #276352
@klon Yes, that’s true on the one hand. On the other hand, that layout is still ridiculous (as I said, it’s like a water tank!)….:)27th September 2014, 19:59 at 7:59 pm #276198
They called it a ring? Sorry, it’s more like a city silhouette or an old lady or a chair or a water tank or……not a ring, basically (apart from the fact that it keeps repeating itself, of course) :)27th September 2014, 4:41 at 4:41 am #276180
@pezlo2013 Forgive me for being a bit silly but what has being Illuminatis got to do with hitting each other?27th September 2014, 2:52 at 2:52 am #276178
