It would be much better if it were more like Wacky Races.
not faultless like cricket which we really excel at as a nation.
That reminds me:
ooooh I can drive a fast car fast.
Formula One is Scalectrix
at least there's the off chance of some maiming.
with me then
playing cricket is good fun.
but I do want to see crashes.
I say slow them all down and put em in dodgem cars.
when 'we' win - its 'good old Freddie FLintoff'
when 'we' lose its 'Andrew Flintoff'
Anyway my argument is that both cricket and F1 are pastimes not sport
and not a sport?
I've been considering going along to the track in Wimbledon to watch stock car racing on Sunday afternoons. I reckon it'd be a great day out.
when I was younger
I'll make some inquiries.
we spent an evening watching motorbike ice racing.
They set off.
They get to the first corner
The one on the inside slips
He slides into all the others one at a time
The one on the end crashes of the track
They carry on until the one in the middle wins.
it's pretty difficult to go round corners above 15 miles an hour... They go round them at 60-90.
I don't even like it that much anyway.
There are lots of very, very challenging corners/hairpins in F1.
And the season starts TONIGHT AT ELEVEN!!!!!11!!!111
Where I can see Friday Practice, Saturday Practice, Qualifying AND the race live.
I <3 Australia.
fun for one lap and then you just get fed up and kick the dog. Stupid dog.
One man has a faster car than the others! And he's starting in front of them!
Nobody can overtake because there are too many bends!
Wooo! Let's see who wins!
You're all rubbish and I hate you.
I tried to defend it! OMG you can give me tips for my fantasy f1 team!
I <3 you too.
I'm really not sure what's going to happen this year though.
I'd expect something like
Massa as top three, but with two rookies in two top cars it gets more difficult. Fisichella/Hamilton/Kovalainen/Button should make up the next four - and I'd take a shot at Heidfeld [<3] for best-of-the-rest.
Fisichella, Kovalainen and Button. My friend keeps saying how rubbish Toyota and Honda are? Fisichella is my favourite one (l).
He's been pretty disasterous the last couple of years, but he'll always be one of my favourites "Today I am VERY 'APPY!". Awww. He's not bad looking either, which is unusual for an F1 driver.
Toyota are awful. They have the biggest budget in F1 [and possibly even bigger than speculated], yet are no more than midfield runners, beaten last year by BMW [in BMW's first year as a constructor]. They're supplying engines to Williams this year, and I wouldn't be surprised if Williams occasionally does better in races, which would be highly embarrassing. They've got a very mediocre driver line up as well. Schumacher [R] and Trulli are great on their day, but more often than not just catch the tail end of the points [or succumb to car failures].
Honda aren't the same at all. Their winter testing form has been a bit mixed, but even if they stay the same as last year, or don't drop back too much, they should still only be behind Ferrari, McLaren and Renault [possibly ahead of the latter]. They've got two solid drivers and have a good chance of winning a couple of races this year. Their new livery is shocking though.
But those are good choices anyway, Kovalainen is obviously a bit of an unknown. He was beaten by Rosberg in GP2 [who had a not-so-good year for williams in 06], but was in an inferior car, and has shown a lot of promise in testing. I reckon he can do well.
Obvs. But other than that, you know, all good.
Everybody always says the same thing and it DRIVES ME CRAZY.
Do you want me to post the qualifying and race results for the last ten years to prove you wrong. And this year there's no clear frontrunner - Ferrari the best car, but two fairly equal drivers, and McLaren certainly seeming up there - with three other teams that could quite possibly win.
There's only ever 3/4 likely winners of a football league, but people care about what's going on throughout it, not just at the top.
There's very rarely a 'best car' for every race in the season, because weather conditions and track layouts vary so much throughout the world.
8) R Schumacher
It reminds me of when I used to watch it with my mum. For some reason, my dad managed to get her into it and she continued her interest in it for a few years after he left
I remember, quite vividly, watching Senna come off. I'd been taught by mum that he was The Enemy, and so I let out a joyous cheer when he crashed. She promptly put me in my place, and it proved to be the crash that killed him. I remember the whole thing affecting me greatly, and I felt terribly guilty for what felt like weeks. One of those lessons between right and wrong, right there
It's probably my earliest memory. My dad told my sister to go and take me upstairs, and I remember hearing him so upset - it took them ages to tell me he was dead.
I pressed it to see what it does. It comes up with a heklp menu. So it's quite shit really too.
