Not just Senna, but also Ratzenberger and Barrichello. 3 serious accidents in 3 days, 2 of which were fatal.
@rigi You see these predictions about the Mercedes (and the Ferrari, to a lesser extent) engines because the Mercedes and Ferrari are the only engines that actually work. Renault seem to have made a big mess of things, and oddly Caterham has the most mileage among the Renault teams, with Red Bull having spluttered around Jerez a few times before giving up.
The interesting thing for me will be to see how far back Red Bull are due to this, especially if their KERS gremlins from last year return, as it will result in a huge loss of power. Superior aero won’t help them there.
I would agree with Mercedes and McLaren being on top, at least at the start. And if anyone can master the smooth delivery required by these high-torque engines, it will be the likes of Button, Alonso et al.
It would certainly be interesting to compare pay drivers then and now (in the early 90s for example), and of course the problem of them booting out actual talent, like Nico Hülkenberg.
Whether or not it’s suitable for an EPQ, I wouldn’t know, I chose not to do one and with hindsight that was a good idea, as my A Level subjects are quite tough. I’ve heard they can be about anything though, and it’s always best to do a subject about which you’re passionate.
Playing Morrowind and Age of Empires 2 HD.
F1 is not the pinnacle of motorsport – the rule changes reflect that fact.
If that happens to a championship contender then they’re completely stuffed, especially if their rivals get the right call and have a 1-2 with double points. Then the championship battle is over faster, negating the point.
Jokes like that make me proud to be a stereotypical British sarcastic cynic.
I suppose we should be thankful that Marussia is no longer called Virgin. The jokes in 2010 were bad enough.
A good kick up the backside from Ross Brawn is exactly what McLaren needs right now.
I’m pretty sure it is indeed Météo France. As to whether it’s for all teams, I don’t know.
I’m seeing it tomorrow.
I agree about Bus Stop. It’s not just the speed either – there’s about a continent’s worth of space that separates the right and left, which makes it one of the most awkward corners ever conceived.
I have a Phenom II X4 965 with a Radeon HD 6850. Not too shabby.
Recommended processor is an i7 or Bullldozer? How much money do they think we’ve got?
