They still have the dumb rules for max engine power and stuff... makes me sad... if that wasn't the case however renault, ferrari, mclarren and the other ferrari team would be crazy...

I've been dissapointed w. Alonso though...

He needs to get his head out his ass and back in the game...

And let me not get started on Piquet

Are they running the KERS already?

Yea the R29 has it(according to their website)... I don't know if anyone else is running it... I think Ferrari probably is...

They gave them slicks and took away wing.

I predict a LOT of crashes this year... and I MEAN A LOT...
Link Posted: 3/26/2009 10:28:20 PM EDT
Alonso is not doing that bad... from 20 to 12... w. just a tire change... hmmm

Dude Australia first... the worst possible track... I mean they have the same bumps since like 2002... it's so fucking bumpy it's funny watching the cars wobble up and down...

I bet Honda is going to flame out the breaks this race... Like they always do...

Haven't seen exploding brake rotors in a while... I miss those.

LOL I know... hahaha... *that's why we race on assphault*
Link Posted: 3/26/2009 10:45:50 PM EDT
LOL UN conventions for the KERS system WTF... hahaha...

An efficiency system that doesn't seem to be very efficient >.> (from a logistics point of view)

I know... lol... it's gunna be funny... I think the people who grab first and last will be the lucky ones... everyone in the middle will be stopping in the pits to get fixed and they will be ahead...

It's just the way they describe the system, all the regulations that surround it and stuff...
Link Posted: 3/27/2009 5:22:17 AM EDT
No, but there is an F1 on all my keyboards. Does that count?

Link Posted: 3/27/2009 8:50:47 AM EDT
Bernie finally listened to me. I've been telling him to go high mechanical grip and low downforce for years. Grooved tires were an obamanation.

Alas, I never get to see F1 due to my luddite views on television. No Motocross, drag racing or Nastycar either. On the other hand, dancing with the stars, sex in the city and Keith Olberman are simply rumors to me.

Oh yeah, Got home from work last night and the DVR was recording something. I do not have it set up to record anything on Thursdays. Fired it up and it was the Practice session in Australia

Sir James...

Holy shit... They just did a KERS explanation.. OMFG...

It's basically a fucking bad ass turbo for F1 cars... WOW...

10% extra horsepower LOLZ...

This season is going to be fucking crazy...
Link Posted: 3/29/2009 2:04:32 PM EDT
Well, the first race was a bit of a surprise....
Link Posted: 3/29/2009 4:10:44 PM EDT
I liked it!!!

A little humility on the podium is refreshing.

Link Posted: 3/29/2009 8:52:55 PM EDT
I loved this race... Well done to the winning team. Hopefully this means that this season will be exciting.

KERS was interesting, I'm actually looking forward to an all electric racing series of some sort in the near
future. Would be a great place to develop and improve the technology.

Besides, the Hydrogen Fuel cell car getting slammed in to the wall and detonating would be worth the price
of admission...

Good season opener, I just wish Speed was in HD.

Bah. I read about it on the internet.
