Fake. Those extremely loud V8’s racing right behind him could not be heard as they drove past.17th February 2013, 21:54 at 9:54 pm #225271
These times mean less than testing.3rd January 2013, 9:55 at 9:55 am #200351
I laughed at this video Keith linked. Apparently it shows a violent crackdown, yet watching it you dont actually see police doing anything but walking around. http://www.channel4.com/news/smuggled-footage-of-bahrain-crackdown
The worst you see is some play acting where they carry a guy away and show a guy huffing and puffing. None of it can be verified.
The women in the video is well educated and is most likely a political agent.
I dont like seeing media getting involved these days because all the well known media houses like the state controlled BBC, or the US controlled CNN etc, are deeply corrupt and influenced by their governments. They are effectively propaganda farms. We have seen how effective those outlets are at swinging opinion. Its not what they say, its how they say it. They have become an effective political tool and have effectively brought down governments, such as Libya and now Syria. Allowing those corrupt media houses into Bahrain probably would have done nothing positive for the Bahrain government because even if all was well within the country, the media would have reported otherwise.
I used to support revolutions against what was presented to me as unfair governments, but since the Libyan joke, I just cant stand it. They took a country that was doing incredibly well for itself and left it in ruins. It used to be a third would country with first world infrastructure, but since the bombing it is now ruled by terrorist fragments and is nothing but a pile of rubbish. All because they did not want to trade in the dollar (they wanted to use gold as a currency) and because they found oil and did not hand it over to western oil companies.11th December 2012, 10:20 at 10:20 am #219169
Jag is such an boring brand now days. I only ever see moms driving them.29th November 2012, 7:07 at 7:07 am #216082
Why are we still even talking about this?27th November 2012, 15:51 at 3:51 pm #215932
Something needs to be done about those torro-rosso’s…
Ironic that people make a noise about Massa letting his teammate past, yet when an entirely separate team is instructed (illegally and obviously behind closed doors prior to the race/season) to let Vettel by it is just accepted.
It is completely unacceptable. If they want to allow B-teams, they must also allow third drivers.4th November 2012, 11:22 at 11:22 am #155368
So who are the other three who were tested? We know of Alonso and Hekki…3rd May 2012, 12:04 at 12:04 pm #200597
Not as bad as Lewis’s!11th August 2011, 5:50 at 5:50 am #166636
When I was racing….
I used to….
I’m the best in the world at everything…
My son is awesome….
The guy is constantly brining up his past as if he was the driver of his era. Meanwhile he was a trash driver who never amounted to anything.
He’s so full of himself and it really just gets to me.11th August 2011, 5:47 at 5:47 am #166635
I honestly cant stand him. I dig DC though.13th July 2011, 23:02 at 11:02 pm #174065
I like Ferrari because they are a family and they are the last team with passion. Mclaren for instance is just a corporate PR circus. You dont see Ferrari drivers taking pictures with their sponsored cellphones in every shot, like you do with Lewis or Jenson. They are there to win, not sell phones.
I also like them because:
• They dont play the PR game. They say what they feel, even if the media tear them apart for it.
• They are the only drivers on the grid who look manly, strong like a bear (ok I’ll include Petrov in there as well). The rest of the drivers are trimmed and dressed up like models.
• They dont do PR stunts. Posing for a camera while you take picture with your camera phone (lewis) really has nothing to do with driving fast, and so I dont want my drivers to do it.
• They are not afraid to play the team game. No driver is above the team. They are team members, all of them. They win and lose together.
• They have a defined second driver. I like it when a team has the guts to come out with it, instead of pretending otherwise (lying to the fans).
• They have a great history.
• They are picked on by the press and portrayed as the enemy of the state. I support them because its not the popular thing to do.
• I enjoy the comradeship between fellow Ferrari supporters. Ferrari supporters are unique because we dont throw our toys out the cot every time something goes wrong. We dont call for our team principle to be axed when we dont win.
• Our drivers are not robots. They say things and act like humans with real emotions. The other top drivers are pre-scripted AI compared to Ferrari drivers. Lewis on the Radio is childsplay compared to Fernando.
• Fernando has a pure passion for racing and winning. It shows the most when he gets upset.
I expect much flame from this post :)13th July 2011, 22:42 at 10:42 pm #173814
What would you expect considering the country they were racing in. The UK fans see Alonso as the number one enemy in F1. That and they are very, very sad people.13th July 2011, 22:38 at 10:38 pm #173490
I stopped contributing because I’m a Ferrari supporter. A large majority of this site are from the UK, and thus _mostly_ have a deep, irrational hate for Ferrari.
Even when Ferrari do well, there are either accusations of cheating flying around or simply a lack of posts altogether. When your team does well (not often for Ferrari), you want to go online and celebrate. Its demotivating to find exactly the opposite is going on.
This site has become a sort of haven for Mclaren fans. In fact, it is a Mclaren fan club that has yet to come out of the closet :)
It is still my first stop for F1 news. I just dont contribute unless I’ve been drawn in to defend my team and my driver (some times your blood boils and you have to step in).7th June 2011, 17:49 at 5:49 pm #167571
“Regarding the Safety Car:
Until, that is, the safety car intervened. It’s another feature that the die-hards have been screaming for, and it’s one that Codemasters Birmingham is paying serious attention to. There’s the challenge of making driving at quarter throttle exciting for the less dedicated players, but it’s one that the studio is searching for a solution to. It’s likely that its answer will be revealed later in the year. “
Maybe I’m a genius, but why not simply add the option to turn off the safety car? Keep it off by default, but give the option to turn it on.
Not that the casual guys would even notice the safety car while they knock all the AI out of the way.17th April 2011, 20:11 at 8:11 pm #166985
You will probably find he wants to be a part of the F1 community and working for the BBC provides him with the perfect excuse to hand about. I doubt he does it for money, maybe for fame, but mostly for himself. So if he decides to skip a race, the BBC have no grounds to reprimand him as they need him more than he needs them.
