    Red bull is disgusting, as are pretty much all energy drinks. Not to mention they are horrendously bad for you. Read the ingredients on the can and research them. I used to drink red eye, and occasionally red bull with vodka (can’t stand the taste of red bull by itself), but that was about 12 years ago, and they did a bit of damage to my stomach (went hard on red eye for a few months in year 12 at school). I am too much of a fitness freak nowdays to put rubbish like that into my body. Learnt my lesson when I was younger.

    Rfactor is another really good one. Rfactor two and project cars are shaping up to be pretty great when they’re finished.

    Money is the most important part to getting into f1. There are hugely talented drivers around the world that stray away from single awarded early because they find that securing millions in funding to move to Europe and get into f1 is simply not viable for them. This isn’t a new thing either. One example from a while back was mark skaife. An incredibly talented Aussie who proved his talent in single seaters domestically, and could have gone to Europe to pursue an f1 career, but decided it was too big a risk financially, because back then no Australian company would see any profit in sponsoring an aspiring f1 driver, and while he could get a loan to move to Europe, he was unlikely to find a competitive team in any open wheel series that would take a young Aussie with no cash. He went on to become a touring car legend instead, but those who worked with him in open wheelers believe he really had more talent for them than tin tops.

    My point is, its naive to think f1 has the best drivers in the world. Maybe some of them, but I’m sure someone, somewhere has missed the boat, who has just as much talent as vettel or Alonso or who ever

    My gut says they will be fine. Considering they have signed the top two aerodynamicists at red bull that work under newey, they obviously are doing everything they can to avoid the Williams situation…

    I agree that this thread is pointless. What I find funny is some people trying to state things nobody could possibly know as fact. The only fact here is that we all know precisely **** all about what will happen next year. And, unless any of you are world class aerodynamic or mechanical engineers, you can’t even make so much as an educated guess. Who knows which engine will be the best? Why? Who could possibly know if Adrian newey will have any advantage? Who even knows it is him that came up with the best Rbr innovations in aerodynamics? Who’s to say it wasn’t their engineer that is leaving for mclaren? Who’s to say that ferraris engine will be any different (better or worse) than the other two? Who can say, with any kind of surety, that ferrari, having Allison and Byrne back, and updated testing facilities, won’t come out as the dominant force out of the box. None of us can know any of this. For all we know, caterham have signed a promising young engineer and will come out and take both titles next year. As incredibly unlikely as that is, you never know. Realistically, until testing starts we will continue to pose ifs and buts, and if ifs and buts were candy and nuts, wed all have a merry christmas. :)

    Senna was dq from suzuka 89 because he was roll started to rejoin the race, which was prohibited in the regs. The senna docco paints prost as the villain, which has led to lots of people believing senna was better. I rate prost above senna, simply from watching their performances. Senna was quicker on his day, but took far too many risks and often crashed into other drivers and barriers. Prost was more careful, and was very professional. I liked them both, they were polar opposites, which was great for the sport. But in hindsight, Prost had the edge.

    This race has come alive in a big way with 15 laps to go… Tander and lowndes stalking the lead group, looks like a five way fight for the win. Pretty impressive after 1000kms

    Yep, shows how unforgiving this place can be. Was a heavy impact, I can only imagine the amount of work they’ll need to put into that car to get it ready for surfers. On a brighter note: at least the pack is back together, and looks like teams have a couple of different options for strategy thanks to the timing of Murphy’s crash.

    I know, but a man can dream. Maybe if something huge happens up front (not rare at bathurst), they can do a bradbury lol. Just watched the bottle-o falcon driver change, the new driver was going up mountain straight, alerting settings and tightening his belts, whilst steering with his left knee. Haha gotta love it!

    Yeah its like a red bull in f1 – dominating. I’m enjoying the racing further down the field though. No lack of battling and overtaking on track that’s for sure. I’m jealous of Neil crompton, he has a great vantage point! I’m quietly hoping for a Nissan to finish in the top ten :)
