    @npf1 To be more precise, here we say Barrichello’s name as “Bah-he-keh-lo” :)

    Here in Brazil one of our commentators, Luiz Roberto, tried to say Vettel’s name correctly for a while, but it seems that he has given up on that, which is not surprising given that very few people here know how to properly pronounce a ‘v’ in German. For all the nonsense they say every race, Brazilian broadcasters get most names right (expect for Rosberg, as they put the emphasis on ‘berg’, making it sound like Ros-BEH-rg)

    As a Brazillian I was very happy with his first Interlagos victory in 2006, even though I’m not his fan. And of course, the 2008 Brazillian GP will probably be forever etched in my memory. I will never forget his gracefulness in that podium cerimony.

    @Kingshark They are probably saving those replays for the season review DVD :P

    But seriously, why in the world FOM doesn’t use picture in picture? PiP is not some sort of arcane witchcraft these days, and honestly they could leave most pitstop to a small window while stuff happens on track, I don’t think anybody would care much. Maybe @gt-racer could explain why?

    Oh God please no, not a tyre war. If Michelin really comes, then we must say farewell to Pirelli. Tyre wars are a terrible terrible idea and we don’t need it at all.

    They find investment from Russia and rename themselves “Buran F1″

    While this belongs deep into the fantasy realm, having a F1 team sharing the same name as a space program would be awesome. However when you consider that said space program was decomissioned due to lack on funds and its only completed spacecraft was destroyed in a hangar collapse (due to poor maintenence), it would be quite the bad omen, wouldn’t it?

    Amazing work @mnmracer!

    The one thing I noticed is that you considered Barrichello’s 2009 Valencia win as ‘inherited’ from Hamilton. That may be a little blurry, because yes, Hamilton did have a slow stop, but Rubens would have likely won anyway, given that he was running substantially longer than Hamilton and only pitted when he did to cover for a possible safety car that could have been deployed to clean up debris from a tyre failure that happened on Nakajima’s car, some two or three laps before his scheduled pit stop.

    I still refuse to believe that Milton Keynes has better engineers than Maranello. :p

    That seems a bit non-sensical when you’ve admitted quite a few times that after 3 years Ferrari still can’t get their most important tool – their windtunnel – working.

    @keithcollantine Indeed I was, but it got way too complex and frustrating once I tried to do the front suspension, and I simply had to give up (for the moment) as I had other priorities.

    In case @Bendana wants to take a look at it, here’s the link http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/groups/f1/forum/topic/drawing-f1-car-on-cad/?topic_page=1&num=15

    Hope you can pull this off, good luck!

    @tony031r Wasn’t Marko courting Hülkenberg a few months ago? Personally I don’t think it would be unreasonable in case Räikkönen turns the offer down, should it come.

    Personally I don’t think either Ricciardo or Vergne are Red Bull material. I mean, they are good drivers, they certainly deserve a place in a good midfield team, but I’m not sure if they are good enough to grant them a seat at one of the very best teams while we have drivers like Hülkenberg (whom I regard as a future champion) driving a Sauber. Either Vettel-Räikkönen and Vettel-Hülkenberg would be an amazing line-up.

    Gutierrez on Sutil :P

    On a serious note, my vote goes for Vettel on Massa.

    Several comments have been deleted from this thread as per the F1 Fanatic Comment Policy

    Sadly this is one quote @keithcollantine has had to use a lot in the past week…

    @keithcollantine That’s Globo for you. Last year they never even once mentioned Barrichello was racing in IndyCar – the only thing they dared mention was that he was racing in the ‘United States’.

    Wow, that’s some great response to the thread!

    @catracho504 They have a Casio sticker on the front of the chassis, so I think that add Casio should suffice.

    @andae23 Thanks a lot!

    @bobthevulcan Do they actually sponsor McLaren or are they just suppliers? If they do give money for their space on the car then I will add then, but I’m trying to keep suppliers of the list, otherwise it will get huge.

    @journeyer On Ferrari’s website Puma is listed as a supplier, while in Mercedes’ website it is listed as a ‘partner’, but on the same category as Pirelli, Allianz and some other brands that do not show up in the car at all, so I’m guessing they are only supppliers as well. Thanks for the Johnnie Walker tip, I missed their tiny logos on the mirrors!

    @GeeMac I left them out for the same reason I left Puma out. It’s a lot easier with companies like Japan Rags or PepeJeans, but when they also supply the racing gear it becomes a bit blurry. I might add every supplier that appear on the cars just to be on the safe side. Regarding Genni, Red Bull and Fiat, I thought I should add them becuase, well, they do inject some money on the team and get a space on the car :P I could remove them if people feel they aren’t actually sponsoring anything.

    @ned-flanders That would be awesome to do, but the only source of information I have are pictures and the only tool I have are my eyes and the patience to spot every sticker on the cars :P

    @freelittlebirds I really don’t know about those. I thought about them but it was already way to late, I’ll do a little bit of research on that Mexico and Venezuela logos. That Italian flag on the 2011 Ferrari wasn’t any sort of deal, it was just Montezemolo trying to be a little patriotic.

    So, this is the list for 2012. The names in red are new, and since I’m going backwards in time that means these sponsors are either no longer working in F1 or they logos are not appearing on the car. I few notes though: I combined Lucozade and Maximuscle into GlaxoSmithKline, as I didn’t want to create two separate industry categories for their producuts. I also grouped conglomerates like UB Group and America Movil on the list too, because honestly I don’t feel like they are separate sponsoring agreements, they are just one company trying to promote the many brands in their portfolio.

    By team (2012 ONLY): http://theartoff1.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/sponsors-teams-2012.png

    By industry (2012 and 2013):

    By country (2012 and 2013):

    P.S.: Oops, there are some slight counting errors on the industry table… well, I’ll wait until I have some more data to upload a new one.

    @prisoner-monkeys It’s easy to pick one shoddy report from shoddy journalists and say we have a “tendency” for it here in Brazil. I have seen these bogus reports happen numerous times from many different countries.

    I have never, ever seen any turstworthy Brazilian reporter confirming Bruno Senna at Force India. This time, however, I have seen trustworthy reporters confirming Luiz Razia at Marussia (Luis Fernando Ramos, for example: http://www.totalrace.com.br/blog/blogdoico/2013/01/31/uma-excelente-oportunidade/). He says the deal was done last Tuesday, with backing from european investors, and the deal was confirmed by Razia’s PR manager.
