    -Massa on diresta or kobashi cant remember exactly who it was but he outbraked on the outside very bravely and in wet conditions…

    Thanks! @keithcollantine i think if you go with the sole objective of taking good pics you can really do some great ones.. but this was my 1st race and i wanted to see the cars rather being busy taking pics…

    Raikkonen on Hulk was pure ballls.. that turn 2 was the most difficult place to overtake on the outside, it was veery steep..

    i was on turn 3 and the whole grandstand just screamed of excitement.. moment of the race for me

    heres my pics https://picasaweb.google.com/100271748258555931586/F1Austin2012

    Watched the replay on TV and it doesnt do justice to the place.. the changes in elevation are great and they dont look as steep as they are on the tv angles…

    Raymond: Rotary engine and rotary valve are two completely different things,.. rotary engines ARE not allowed. my question was about rotary valves..

    No. what is rotary is the valve. cant remember exactly where i read about them but the valve itself doesnt go up and down like conventional ones.. this valves have the shape of a drill and they sit above the head so the flow goes thru the “drill” when it rotates allowing it to go into the chamber and then when they keep rotating they allow the flow to go out…. (i hope this is clear enough haha)…Mercedes Benz was about to introduce them in F1 and the FIA banned them thru the ferrari “veto” of the rules…

    @keithcollantine the data sheet hamilton posted doesnt contain anything “secret” i remember during the 2008 or 2009 season you could view exactly that same data and compare their laps on the Ferrari web site! dont know if the feature is still there but i remember comparing raikkonen and massa laps around melbourne. with exactly the same data (speed, gears, throtle)

    teams already have this information from gps, i remember John Booth saying that they exactly knew where they where slower than other teams from gps data. so its not such a big deal like everyone is claiming.

    in fact you could get this data from the tv graphics on the onboard lap!

    There is a south american journalist that has been insisting on twitter that Hamilton might go to Willliams, he says that williams has money and they are a eager to get Hamilton.. he also says that Bruno Senna sponsors are not happy and that they are trying to get him to Sauber….

    the guy also hinted that is a possibility that an annoucement is going to be made in Austin or Abu Dhabi

    i think that would be great.. Perez to Ferrari, Senna and Gutierrez to Sauber, Maldonado and Hamilton in Williams…

    @speediea thanks Rich… i called the track and it seems its going to be a premium membership space as well. and they are not sure just yet……. i started looking and everything is almost booked.. i found one called the hacienda http://www.lahaciendarvpark.com/index.htm they have spaces but i didnt make the reservation because it seems pretty far away from austin to me.. what do you think is it too far away ??

    im going with my dad and 2 brothers….
