When you find yourself trying to explain to your wife some kind of strategy.
When you wake up al 7 in the morning to see during 1 hour how 24 cars have a tour behind a beautifull car under the rain in the other side of the world.
when you say to your wife “Poor Alonso, he’s going to lose the championship”, and she says “Yes, poor him, with the amount of money he has”, and you have to agree.2nd November 2010, 11:09 at 11:09 am #134365
I’m Raul from Madrid, Spain. I’m 36. I’m a F1Fanatic since 2006 but it could be better to say AlonsoFanatic. Someone said that F1 in Spain should be called FA, and that’s true. Since him, spanish tv shows races and since him people watch it.
Real fanatism came to me when I had a daughter and I had to wake up at 7 on sunday to feed her. Then I begun to watch even asian and american GPs.
I came here after hockenheim to see reactions about Alonso’s “overtaking” and I really was surprised to see that outside Spain, media, opinions and everything works like in Spain. Very biased. After the first disappointment I saw that F1Fanatic is better than others blogs and that except some opinions, here you talk about F1 more than in Spain. So I stayed.
I like to have different opinions from you and I hope you understand more about F1 with my point of view. Points of view that I understand very different because our nationality, sociology, and way of looking at problems is different. I really beleive that our nationality affects our ideas.
Another self definition could be that “I really think” that Fernando is faster than you. With everything that it could mean.
And well, I apologies again about my English, hoping you enjoy trying to understand my posts.
I’m pleased to meet you all.27th October 2010, 13:28 at 1:28 pm #149010
Will Keith ever accept that team orders are OK?
Will everybody ever understand that Alonso will win this Championship?
Did anybody doubt that Alonso was going to win this Championship?
will Spanish like me ever stop destroying your language posting in english spoken blogs? For sure not.14th October 2010, 14:15 at 2:15 pm #143872
I’m trying to find a source written in english to show this, but I can’t. Only a Spanish journalist talks about it. It’s about the flexy wing, that in the end, it doesn’t flex. It’s something that gives light to this issue but it’s so fantastic that I just tell you and yo rate it.
A Ferrari photographer spy has the evidence of a spring in the flat floor of the RB6 that is the mechanism to get the wood floor down 5mm. I don’t understand how it works but it’s said that the driver had to activate it by a hit of the floor in a piano (piano? I mean the red and white border of the road) and then the position keeps for just a lap. :O
Well, 5mm in the center of the car is like 8mm in the front and that means 1 s per lap.
Ferrari denounced it before Monza and in Monza they didn’t have it. But then RBR begun to be a mortal and not a god.
Could you please search for more information? I just don’t believe spanish media if there’s no more information.
Thanks.14th October 2010, 8:37 at 8:37 am #146787

He said once that it came from a TV kids show, a very old show from Argentina o Uruguay showed again in spain in the 80’s. It’s called “El chavo del ocho”. Anyway, it doesn’t make any sense. It seems to be kisses to the people as I understand that this means kisses. I mean that if this thing did meant “go to hell” he wouldn’t use it.
This year with number 8 in the car it has more sense as “chavo del 8” means “the kid of the 8”, but he does it before this year.
