I seem to remember Vettel running number 15 on one of his helmets as a lucky number back in 2010 or 2011.
It’s also the car number he had for his first victory for Toro Rosso and Red Bull Racing.
Like most F1 journalists they suffer from short memory syndrome. “Oh Grosjean has had a good last three races, let’s put him second.” Despite him having a terrible start to the season and almost getting fired in Monaco.
Nice we’ve finally seen one but I bet you any money in three of four races time we’ll never see it again.
They bring out these amazing things – helmet cam, ghost camera – then a few races later, gone.
Surely teams could just use spam bots to Tweet them, or even run competitions like “Vote for us and win an autograph.” This so, so, so stupid.
‘No the cars not fast, I’m talking about the phone.’
It’s funny cos it’s true.
That second video is a great layout. It’s a slight variation on the MotoGP layout and I like that they use turn 2 of the oval instead of turn 1.
It won’t beat the oval of course but having both would be great :)
Great news. Now they just need to race on it.
America have Indy Road Course, Circuit of the Americas, Road America, Road Atlanta, Laguna Seca… but no, they decide to race on ridiculous “race tracks” like Baltimore and then wonder why it’s complete carnage every time.
Vettel’s attempt to recreate the famous Mansell/Senna moment from Silverstone failed when no one wanted to pick him up.
Not the first time Loeb has had a near miss http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4bfl0_sebastien-loeb-frole-un-gendarme_news#.UdHi7JyvGAJ
Here’s the full run from onboard. Pure engine sound too. Lovely http://www.redbull.com/en/motorsports/stories/1331598982312/video-loeb-pikes-peak-record
TK’s Indy 500 curse is finally broken! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Kanaan#Indianapolis_500
We were robbed of an incredible run to the line but hearing the crowd going nuts when they realised TK was going to finally win, that was an equally incredible way to end the race.
Goosebumps just thinking about it. I was teary during those final two laps.
When GP2 drivers seem to do nothing but crash into each other right now, those guys going three/four wide at that speed without any contact is seriously impressive. Great respectful racing between them all.
As if Loeb wasn’t doing enough already, I’m hearing that he’ll be doing the Porsche Supercup supporting the Spanish and Monaco Grands Prix.
Now please do the Indy 500… :P
A nice video here of the old Pikes Peak Pug and the new – http://www.redbull.com/en/motorsports/stories/1331586331425/video-loeb-pikes-peak-car
Great to see Loeb trying so many different types of Motorsports, I’d love more drivers to do the same.
It’s a real shame he’s had to pull out of Le Mans this year.
