    Honestly (and I know many will not agree) I like a bit of passion and fire in the drivers. I like a bit of emotion and energy. Calm, cool, and always complimentary drivers can get a bit boring. Everyone always being nice to each other on the outside. It’s so fake. I like the passion and honesty. And when people are honest with their negativity, it means their positive comments are honest too, and that gives the positive side more value as well rather than making it all so clinical and sterile.

    I was thinking that too. There’s no minimum speed. Babysitting drivers who can’t go full pace is absurd. They should slow down to the speeds necessary to NOT lose control, no matter how slow that might be. The more daring can go faster and risk damaging the cars. Look at Vergne, who was still racing on inters in the full rain, but CAREFULLY, while taking on the likes of Schumacher on full wets.

    As long as they both do well and get McLaren enough points to get the CC, then I don’t really care who is better. And better at what? Some drivers are better at one thing than another. It’s not black and white. You aren’t just good and not good. They all have strengths and weaknesses, and they come out differently at different tracks.

    Last year the Canadian Grand Prix started here in Aus at 3am. I had to work but who cares, so I woke up and was ready to watch.

    Well, we all know what happened with the rain delay, and seconds after the restart, the TV coverage on free to air (all I had at the time due to ONE going digital only) went to the scheduled morning news, and would not resume coverage except on their digital channels. I had no way to watch the race so went to work wanting to know what happened.

    I looked it up on the f1 site and found out Button had won, after going from last to first twice and slipping in past a Vettel mistake, making up for being robbed at Monaco! Then, moments later a colleague mentioned how he had recorded the entire race, live on digital, and would put a copy on the company server. So I still got to watch it, but the best race by far of the 2011 season could have been better had I not been in a rush to find out what happened after the 2 hour rain delay.

    It’s really, really simple. Sydney needs to fight hard for the GP. We want it because Melbourne has it, and if Sydney wants it, Melbourne will move heaven and earth to keep it.

    Come on Sydney, let’s fight to have the GP here to make sure it stays in Melbourne!

    I’ve been forced to go alone because none of my dead-beat friends could afford to go. While I am not an active member of these forums, hopefully I can still meet up and have a few beers with a bunch of friendly faces. I’ll be there all 4 days and then Monday too, as I wasn’t keen to fly out right after the race. As a McLaren junky I’m still keen to see an Aussie take the flag, so I have 4 drivers to go for!
