    yeah, good news, but we’re waiting for Godot… when i first heard about rFactor 2, Sebastian Vettel still had no WDC in his CV.

    I started watching F1 in 1995, when i was 7. Never smoked a cigarette…
    I think that smoking cigarettes should be forbidden for underage kids, but an adult person is free to hurt himself/herself as he/she pleases. I find hypocritical to bash just cigarettes when alcohol and gambling advertising are still regarded as fully acceptable.

    @aish here’s a possible answer provided by F1PitRadio Twitter account.
    “Not sure, but mechanics appeared to have re-secured a carbon panel in the foot box”

    Actually, I don’t know, and it was during Q1, not FP3. i’m looking for an answer, but there’s only mention of a ‘foreign body’ in his cockpit, without further details.
    Some bad people think that Giedo has just reached puberty… :-D

    Fresh from FP3 in Bahrain…

    Giedo van der Garde:”There’s something in the cockpit… between my legs… it’s moving!”

    As a daily commuter and Kindle owner, the possibility to exploit services that automatically download RSS feeds on the ebook reader is unvaluable, and the F1 Fanatic round-up was among my regular morning reads. I’m sorry I won’t have this chance any more, but I understand that content robbers are far more than a worry nowadays.

    Rumours told that he would have wanted to drive a Ferrari sooner or later, and we Italians had strong admiration for Senna. Probably he’s been the most appreciated non-Ferrari driver of all times in Italy and, if I remember correctly, the ‘Avvocato’ Gianni Agnelli had a soft spot for him, so I’d like to picture how everything would have changed if he had moved to Ferrari in 1996 instead of Schumacher.
    Then, maybe 2-3 seasons trying to improve with his experience that dog of a car. Maybe he would have been able to win a championship earlier than Schumi. And then he would have retired, happy to have reached the tally of his former team-mate Alain Prost.

    If F1 were sprint racing, then we’d have 40 minutes races. In the refuelling era drivers were accustomed to consider each lap as a qualifying lap, now and before the 90s it was a totally different business.
    The rules of the game are clear, everyone knew that tyre management would have been crucial this year (as in the previous 2 seasons), so if you’re not able to set up a car that is capable of taking care of tyres, then you deserve to be below in the standings.

    We can then discuss if tyre management is WAY TOO important…

    Haha, go Italy! Every now and then we’re capable of delivering a not-so-bad performance and maybe win also with France and Ireland. Give us other 20 years in the Six Nations and maybe we can win this tournament, too. :D

    i am very far from the epicentre of the earthquake (150-200 km, i live near Monza) and it was unusually strong. when i woke up my bed was shaking, but here there are no important damages, unluckily there are some victims in the towns and villages closer to the centre of the quake. I don’t know if there are damages even in Modena and Maranello, but the ScuderiaFerrari twitter account doesn’t mention anything…

    @roald probably there will be a step in the nose (barely visible from the picture), hopefully not as ugly as the Catheram one…

    horrific and weird crash.
    Sic was a real character in MotoGP, a light-hearted, passionate guy.
    He was just a year older than me, thinking that he’s just passed away is so strange.

    i don’t know what i can say any more, i’ve lost the ability to write. RIP Marco.

    I think that the higher nose is just a consequence of the imitation of the dominant design, which has clearly been Red Bull since mid-season of 2009. However, McLaren is trying something different and it’s going well, so maybe next year we can see lower noses and L-shaped sidepods…
