    If it’s true about no TV coverage then it’s very disappointing. But thank you for the links I shall give them both a go see if I can get my fix.

    If you look to me its not the wheel coming lose, it’s him doing the age old trick of turn it off and turn it on. When he goes into the left turn he changes down and you can see the LED’s showing his rev but then when accelerating there are no LED’s, thus him taking it out and putting it back in to see if that solves the problem and it does when the LED’s come back on for a short time.

    Grosjean on Hamilton was a very good move as both had tyres which were slowly going off the cliff and it was around the outside and on a slightly more dirtier line.

    I don’t think it will cost him the title, I mean from now and until the end of the season anything can happen. If the problems persist and it carries on race after race, then that will cost him the title. Right now he is still within reach of first place I mean a win and some podiums will throw him right up there with a chance.

    The only question is if the problems carry on, which I still don’t feel Mclaren have got even the fundamental things right. Their pit stops look weak still and I honestly don’t feel as if the whole tyre change problem is sorted. You can see it’s not as smooth as say the Ferrari team or even the Mercedes team and adding the fact that they are bringing a new twist jack which they knew would have problems with they still don’t look solid. With the jack problem, I know it saves a few vital moments but if it isn’t perfect then don’t use it? The other jack worked fine, yes it wasn’t as say fast as the others but it worked none the less.

    In conclusion, I don’t think the mistakes that have been made will cost him the title because there is still so much more to happen in this season. However, if they don’t cut the mistakes out and don’t improve then it will cost them both titles.

    He’s probably thinking that he will win it for them. Other than that, he probably came to the realisation that crashing his car nearly every race is costing the team quite a bit and he isn’t going to be so stupid.

    That’s quite a fair share of bad luck but then again, after years of driving the most reliable Ferrari’s maybe ever it was bound to catch up with him. I just want him to have one good race because he deserves it, I don’t think I have seen him have a soild race with a good result without something happening to him. It just shows that MSC is human after all and that Merc do sometimes mess up.

    Karthikeyan is at fault for it but Vettel isn’t clean in this. The pass was clean but if Karthikeyan had wheel spin then surely we can’t expect him to just sit through it all and let it spin away? Still, I can’t help think another driver in that position could of done much better and not dart across the track into him. However regradless, Vettel’s reaction to this was disgraceful and unprofessional. I wouldn’t expect this from any driver but from the world champion and one of the main men in the sport it surely needs an apology? I understand he was frustrated but he shouldn’t be insulting another driver regardless.

    Does anyone know why no-one uses the number 13? Is it just dismal superstition or is there a real reason?

    At the team he is at now, no. At any other team i unfortuantly really doubt it. He just doesnt seem to have that certain spark that would give him the win. He gota podium and that’ll be the best he can do.

    I wouldn’t look at the sources and say that he is ciricizing the car, I mean I am guessing your English speak, translated quotes always mean different to what they acutally meant.

    I would love to see Lewis vs Fernando again, it was so interesting and exciting watching though’s two going at each other again, Massa and Webber I would love to see and then win every race alternatively just to prove they have the talent. Kobayashi and the divine wind.

    I’m doubting it’s truth seen as though VW have either designed and created engines without anyone realising or there just not. Secrets are hard to keep but if this turns out to be true then wow, secret well kept.

    I read an interesting article in another F1 magazine and it shows the heart rate of Mark Webber throughout a race and it was alarming how high it gets! Would it be possible for you to compair the heart rates to other sports such as Football or if possible another motor race?

    1) He wouldn’t of been as motivated in the next year I feel and wouldn’t fight as hard.
    2) If he didn’t win we would be seeing Lewis fighting for everything.
    3)He would have his agents to push him into every advert possible and start a cologne range and then a movie role. He would be hungry for more I think.

    I would love to see the black design that was posted by @Jezson (btw excellent job) but it’s unlikely. The chrome design looks nice and goes with Mclarens space age type decor they have at the factory but just a little shake up now and again would be nice. Regardless unless it has go faster stripes (which are scientifically proven to make cars go faster) then it doesn’t make a difference to me as long as there winning with whatever colour.
