    Even though that’s not strictly trackside-F1 related, it is an interesting thing I noticed, while watching this year’s Le Mans 24 hour race on Eurosport. Rolex, F1′s and WEC’s official timekeeper, aired a commercial with a short scene with an onboard shot from Valtteri Bottas’ car from this year’s Australian GP, with V8 engine sound superimposed on it. I’m currently browsing the internet looking for that specific spot.

    That tells quite a lot about the new sound of F1. It seems that even the official timekeeper doesn’t want to include it in its TV commercials.

    There’s something wrong here.

    Oh, now I get it, they played wrong set of anthems each time he won. Unbelievable.

    It’s Robert Kubica everybody. Well deserved, in my opinion.

    He’s going to lap the whole field twice, and cross the line 1st, while driving backwards, having pitted the lap before, asking the team to clean his car and demanding a glass of champagne.

    The circuit is going to be renamed Circuit of The Kovalainen as a result.

    Well, personally I’d love to see the 2003 BAR livery on a modern car.

    If you like to improvise, you could think of a cool F1 Jagermeister livery, or maybe try converting a MotoGP livery to F1.

    @BWT89

    You are an amazing human being.

    That deserves a news on the main page.

    Good thread. Anybody remember Cristiano Da Matta? Christian Klien? Nicolas Kiesa?

    Well, how could we forget.

    The unexpected track debut of Jeep F1′s single car entry.

    I think we really used to have cool liveries, not even that long ago. Think of the BMW Williams from around 2003, or the orange Arrows’. I also loved the 2000-2004 Jaguar.

    I know where you’re coming from, @loup-garou , and it’s not only about the unsafe release thing.

    I remember Raikkonen receiving a drive-through penalty in Monaco 2008 as his tyres weren’t fully fitted at the 3 minute signal before the start. Now that’s something that got me thinking. I thought of the penalty silly.

    But overall, I do agree that the driver is a part of the team, and the whole group should maintain high efficiency. After all, they’re all working for one thing, and that thing is to win.

    Embarrassing stickers to the car.

    Drivers would be careful – no sponsor would like to have their logo next to an embarrassing FIA sanctioned sticker of, let’s say, drawing of a human phallus.

    I reckon Charlie Whiting might not even use stickers, but draw aforementioned drawings himself with a bright-colored marker instead.
