    Again, I’m surprised to see Button put away and giving Hamilton 2012? At least show respect for Alonso, he battled until the end of that season. And Button is as deserving of his title (in a rocketship) as Hamilton if he gets this yeas’s title in HIS rocketship, as Schumi 2002, Vettel 2013, Mansell 92.. I mean, the combo “supercar / good or super driver” is not unfair. If you are a solid team, if you build a rocketship, who would you hire (money out of the equation please)? Maldonado or Bottas? Vettel or Massa? Button or Kovalainen? I mention Massa and Kovalainen because these guys had their shot at solid, big teams, and (at least Massa post crash) have not been able to at least shine more. You see races when Hamilton or Alonso abandoned but their teammates didn’t take the team forward to get a victory. Button had the car, “tough luck” for his not-fans. He deserved his title.

    The champion is the champion for all of the reasons combined. Maybe this year can be the exception, I mean, if we calculate the points that should be with “normal points” vs “AbuDhabi points”, and if we see the champion could be another one if it weren’t for those double points, only then I would say “another driver deserves the championship”, but in fair play situations, the champion is the top scorer. This year, because of the domination played by Mercedes (and something gives me the impression Lewis has already cracked Nico’s confidence) I guess the WDC will be given long before the AbuDhabi scam.

    Points now look just fine. The problem is in the non scoring places (It’s indeed a F1 problem to see teams not scoring in 3 years) because just one good result means more than consistency. That one of them got a 17th in all the season and 20th on the rest, is akwardly more valuable than the other team getting 18th all the season and slipping back just in one. Of course is like a “face it” situation, these teams are not good enough to make one point, but it looks a little unfair. Unfair as double points, but the topic creator said this is not a debate about that, so just this about non scorers.

    To be honest, I never thought Red Bull could ever win a single championship (drivers or constructors). They looked so distracted wearing Superman capes and Star Wars stuff, I couldn’t take them seriously.

    @keithcollantine about the 2 chanels, it really is just one. FoxSportsLA has FoxSports1, Foxsports2 and FoxSports3. Fox1 is in the standard pack, 360 dollars a year , the other is in the premium pack and costs 720 dollars a year

    Make it louder than real life, so nobody complains about the lack of noise. Just turn the volume up.

    1. What country are you in (and state, if applicable) Lima, Peru
    2. Which channels broadcast F1 near you? FOX Sports LA (“cable” channel)
    3. Do they show all the races live or only a limited number (if so, how many?) All
    4. Do they also show qualifying live? All
    5. Do they also show practice sessions live? all Practices, but in a more expensive channel. (Part of a premium package)
    6. If they are a subscription channel, what does a full year’s subscription cost (excluding limited time offers)?
    Movistar TV offers quite a lot of variations for the subscription, but it’s around $360 a year (and the full package of all the F1 coverage is quite double)
    7. Do they broadcast coverage online? If so please post link/s
    No, but I’d love to know links that work in Latin America in general
    8. Please supply any other relevant information such as alternative viewing options
    There’s a cars program on TV that shows the highlights of the race, but 2 weeks late (and just a 5 min release) so they’ll show the Australian GP this weekend.
    *F1 has really little popularity in Peru. You say F1 and people ask “Is Schumacher still running? What? he retired?”

    Hey guys, I see some of your got really addicted to the game! Well Keiths, my report is much smaller:
    (all of this playing with intermediate difficulty)
    YDT: I got what it takes to start my career at Force india. I really tried hard for Sauber but it was impossible for me)
    Season 1: some bad results at the beginning. On this game I have a Vettel-like campaign, I mean, I go slowly at first and then I finish so much better.
    Anyway, the Force India got me some finishing points, and my best was a 5th or 4th
    Season 2: I started strongly, with a win in Malaysia and another in Barhain. Then I struggled, but exactly when I needed it, I won in the Nurburgring. Sauber called me to drive right away. I got another win in India. Got a contract with McLaren for my 3rd season (YEAH!!!)
    Season 3: I rocked the car… I won Australia (finally, I was about to do it on Season 2 but my tyres didn’t resist and I finished 16th or something), podium in Spain, win in Canada, Silverstone (Wow that was great) Hungary made me trash again (I don’t know why I can NEVER even classify in Hungary, the tarmac destroys my tyres all the time) but my good streak makes me a place in Ferrari to start the next race, they say take it or leave it, so I take it ( it’s just a game, sorry Seb) and there comes the glory: Wins at Spa, Italy, JAPAN (my best win ever, it’s always been so hard for me to drive in Suzuka!!!) podium in India (and the championship!!!) and a superb rainy Victory in Brazil, to seal my contract with RED BULL!!! That was my goal. I didn’t play the 4th season because even when we are talking about F1, I got kind of bored to think about doing everything again. Nowadays I’m playing Split/Second and Burnout, great games, not really sporty but great!

    @fixy just curiosity, do you design helmets as a job? I’ve seen your Twitter page and you have great designs. Also, do you know if it’s possible to “patch” the F1 2013 game so we can design the helmets? (maybe designing the helmet first on an external program?)

    I just don’t want to write a list of 20 names… I just imagine 2 possible “universes”
    1. Button gets the championship with McLaren this year. Magnussen ends up as “another big promise” (another Diresta?) so Kevin is fired by Ron. Jenson decides to retire with his second belt. Alonso goes to McLaren in 2015 after he is beaten by Kimi (just a couple of points, but that’s so much to take for Fer) and seeing the champion’s car is available in McLaren, he grabs it, with Dennis or not. Hulkenberg takes the mighty number 27 where it belongs, to Ferrari, where he gets the championship in 2015. The Red Bulls are nowhere near the podium this year, in a McLaren2013-like campaign. Mercedes gets more victories but it’s Rosberg who gets the most of them, and so Nico gets the “first driver” treatment. Hamilton can’t stand it and returns to McLaren, where (oh surprise) it’s Fernando again.

    2. Kimi gets the championship, Alonso can’t stand it and leaves to McLaren. Button goes to Williams. Massa sucks again and retires. Valteri’s seat goes to Susie Wolff, who has a Chilton-esque campaign. Valteri takes Gutierrez’s seat. Gutierrez dissapears from F1. Hulkenberg takes Fernando’s seat and gets the championship in 2015.

    This is the one I would use. The design has Nazca images, something part of Peruvian’s cultural heritage. Also our flag (red and white) and the letter O for Omar. (PS: I did the design just using PowerPoint and Paint, so sorry if it’s a little messy)

    …and whenever I see some symbols painted on the road (as when the water company drafts angles on the asphalt), I remember the Nordschleife!!!

    When the bus I take to go home everyday makes a fast right-left in a narrow street, I always think “chicane” and in roundabouts I think “Turn 8″. (and if you are an F1F, you know what turn 8 I’m talking about :P)
