Gwlad all over

F1 Chat

Recommended Posts

Share your interest Gwlad but not to the extent that I feel the need to debate at huge length....we had a short thread on here last season (LINK) but it didn't come to much.

 

Looking forward to it again, specially with Luke Hamilton in the McLaren giving us two Brits (hopefully) at the sharp end of the field.

That's two fucking mistakes I've made today with names, the first was far more embarrassing and I quickly obliterated all evidence :( . Stupid thing is I couldn't remember his name so I looked it up on the F1 site to check and still got it wrong.....Alzheimers or early onset dementia setting in perhaps :unsure: .

Understand admiring Raikkonen as a driver but he has less personality than the average cardboard box so it would be a PR disaster for F1 if he won the title. Bernie Ecclestone must have nightmares about it. Given a choice of the three genuine contenders (Raikkonen, Alonso and Massa) I'm with Mark on Alonso but have to stick with the Brits (Coulthard excepted). Really want to see Jenson and Lewis Hamilton ( :rolleyes: ) get amongst them.

the new mclaren i think will do well. i think they may have done away with reliability issues. and im hoping hamilton to do well. although i can see raikonnen winning.

 

the good thing with this season is that without schumacher the title race is open now to all drivers. therefore its probably more interesting as we wont see micheal schumacher on the podium anymore

What time in the morning is the race on tonight/tomorrow?

 

3.00 the race starts...programme begins about 2.00 I think. Re-run at 4.30 tomorrow afternoon...they used to always do a morning one which is much better...can't avoid the result til the afternoon. Record it I think.

Button will never be a contender unless he moves into a better car. he is a good driver and has got lots of experience. put him in a ferrari,mclaren,renualt and hel be up there

Agreed...ten podium finishes and third in the championship (in 2004) behind totally dominant Ferraris suggests he has the ability if he had the car. No question in my opinion.

Put them all in the same car, same spec, same equipment. Then you will have the best driver, either that or let them drive around Liverpool City centre at 16.30 on a Friday afternoon, and see who is the best driver.

 

Too much money, not enough responsiblity. it is not hard to drive around a track where there is nothing to block you. These men are held up as the best drivers in the world, give me a fucking break, (or brake). These people claim they take part in the most dangerous "sport" on earth, no-one forces them to do it.

 

Rant over.

i cant get into A1, maybe its the lack of having "big name" teams in there, it is more exciting, but just doesnt pull me in

 

 

I feel the same Steve, I watched the first season of it but I havnt bothered this time around because it was so boring with all of the stoppages

I heard the 4 BMW powered machines have one of the best inline speed but in all they seem not to qualify for a podium finish. Is it real that BMW lack F1 power? ( They cannot be worst than Toyota and Honda machines right?) or is it the bad team and bad startegy the reason for their failures so far? Advices appreciated.....thanks

BMW have their engines in both Sauber and Williams and the Sauber looks a very strong contender at the mo, behind only Ferrari and McLaren. Hard to predict after just one race and they don't have the most exciting drivers in Heidfeld and Kubica (though Kubica is promising) but I think they'll get the odd podium this year.

LOL yeah this is the second season of it. I thought that A1 racing was owned by some Arab guy not Murdock?

some shaik owns it, but murdock spent quite a bit of cash to get in on sky.

they thought it would take away a lot of fans from F1, because A1 is all the same cars, and rubbish like that

I'm sorry boys, but I just don't get this lark.

 

The better engines against the better engineering systems, it all sounds to me like Russel Grant in the 100m against Linford Christie, good fun but bloody pointless.

its been two years and im still not feeling any national pride, if a driver from A1 was sat next to me i wouldnt have a clue! (unless he was in a race suit, maybe then. but he'd probably need a neon sign, just to make sure!)

Another disaster for Button in Malaysia...15th on the grid. WTF is up with Honda? Hamilton fourth. Renault piss-poor again as well, 11th and 12th....don't know how teams can go so spectacularly wrong.

GREAT result for McLaren, I don't think you need to worry about Hamilton, he is a talented driver with a competetive car, and won't get itchy feet like Button (Who is not as good as he thinks) did.

im worried about hamilton, im worried he has the potential to be one of the best drivers f1 will have seen.

if the season carries on like this i think mclaren will walk the championship
