is so annoying - so harsh. How does he get a job in broadcasting?
you're so wacky!!!
I forgot how horrible it is to actually care about a race result. This is the first time Nick's had a decent qualifying performance (especially in relation to Kubica) in forever. Usually rain would be beneficial, but with a decent grid position and one person in front of him almost certainly on a very low fuel load, a dry race would probably work better. He does tend to do pretty well in the wet though, I remember the European GP when he was with Williams, and he was probably the only driver in the race who didn't make a mistake. And Kubica should still be on a similar fuel level seeing as how he can't change it, so Nick -really- needs to get a decent result here. A solid top 5 would be okay.
actually, i was out so i missed qualifying/most of the race build-up
why the hell does the front of the grid (first four rows) look so...unusual. vettel? two renaults? webber? only 1 bmw and only 1 ferrari? help pls
But he's been pretty strong through testing, so it was still a great job from him, but he'll almost certainly drop back quickly. Vettel again was good during testing, I think he could get a decent finish today, so long as he can avoid putting it in a wall. Kubica had a problem in qualifying, not sure if it was a driver error or technical problem, but he didn't set a competitive lap time.
to set his competitive qualifying lap.
Renault are generally okay in qualifying anyhow - good for Nelsinho though -- I've been concerned for him.
that i have less of a clue about todays race than any in the past 10 years. not that i dont enjoy watching, i just seem to be forgetting the drivers/teams/etc
but I'd just like to say Steve Ryder is one of the most annoying sports presenters in the history of the world.
It's not just his smug, monotonous voice but his smug, simple face- the ITV coverage of Euro 2008 was awful.
As will most of them. Awesome.
Once, he told Naomi Campbell to shift her arse out of the way so he could speak to someone else.
Mostly now it's just talking to celebrities who have something to promote, and say impossibly stupid things to try and sound like they have a clue. He seems to do that less now, but drivers are also more reluctant to talk now...
he just talked to Murray Walker followed by Sterling Moss
so close to Hamilton. I feel sick....
Kovaleinen looks about double his age (26) in his caption photo?
is Finnish. They all look funny.
Better not have hit Nick
This is bad
is purple..... what the fuck?????
He's ridiculously quick
it was ridiculous how much i laughed when Raikkonen said he missed peles speech last year because he was having a shit.
was brilliant <3
good stuff indeed.
than everyone else
I meant. Not now. But was.
he's an absolute weapon out there.
were beyond awesome <3
What's he doing? Has his steering-wheel fallen off?
I wouldn't want him any other way.
You always need a Massa in Formula One!
and Takuma Sato
of the modern era.
He's more of a de Cesaris I think ;-)
And I'm shaking... and crying.
He needed that so much.
And was brilliant.
Or put a name in there.
Unless you actually consider Nicky to be a 2cunt2... in which case you're an idiot.
My fingers are shaking too much to use the shift key correctly...
i wanted hamilton to lose, the cunt.
Nico Rosberg.... who else?
Why do you watch F1.....?
the same reason other people do, although i've never asked the question outright.
I was talking about Heidfeld. As I have been in every post this thread. Which given my posts should have been remarkably obvious...
i wasn't supporting him either.
well happy for PM's boy too. he had a stormer.
Massa looked like he'd forgotten which way round the track he was supposed to go, Heidfeld was apparently bored of passing only one car at a time, Barichello doing the F1 version of "the football league is upside-down" and Hamilton trying to have the most boring race of anyone and probably managing it.
I can only remember Hamilton having two and he won them both comfortably.
without a safety car. With about 25 laps to go I was basically crying hysterically expecting one.
but some decent 'offs' (sutil's looked like fun from the on board camera!)
I loved this race. bit bummed out for webber though.
No real reason, I just saw him in F3000 (the year he won the championship there) and he seemed like a great driver and an awesome person. Then he got the Prost racing seat after winning that and it instantly developed into a complete obsession. And I love it.
I really respect him as a person. When teammates, he beat Raikkonen, beat Massa, beat Webber etc, but was pretty much always overlooked and put down by all sorts of people, he's been ripped in to and savaged, even when driving really well. After having had brilliant seasons with Sauber, he even went to Jordan - got no wages, had to pay his hotel rooms and flights. And now he has the chance he's always deserved. and he's the nicest guy in the pitlane. And has a brilliant sense of humour -- he's got some fantastic quotes to his name.
I remember those days too, some good races were seen. 1998 was the best season for me, Montoya, Heidfeld and Rodriguez (sadface)...2000 was good too, with Alonso winning a couple.
