Yes. Not newest tough, can't keep up and won't keep up. Those drive forever.
The crime rate here's ridiculous and it's always Hondas I'm reading about being nicked. Only the older ones though.
Maybe they want to have a reliable car when they rob that bank.
Was Nigel Mansell ever young? He's looked like a podgy 50 year old since the 70's.
Part of my family lived over the bay from him. my aunt's reception was held there.
You're being kind with 50.
Yes I am He's one of those guys who always looked middle-aged.
Sunday night it all kicks off in Melbourne! I'll watch as many as I can before it's televised at silly o'clock on a Sunday morning.
Always holding hope out for McLaren but we'll see what happens. Pretty sure it'll be Lewis' season again though.
Anyone going to watch? I'm pretty excited actually.
How is this halo not limiting vision?
Didn't watch, but it looks like Ferrari won?
Let me see who started on the pole.
Vettel (Ferrari) won.
Sounds like there was a pass in this race. On pit road after something called a Virtual Safety Car came out he was able to pass Hamilton - the pole sitter.
Edit : It looks like he had to pass 2 cars to win this race! Another Ferrari - Kimi Raikkonen - qualified 2nd and Vettel was 3rd. It also sounds like this pass happened on pit road.
I reported the truth, but it was heavy with sarcasm.
The cars are fast as fuck. The drivers are insanely talented. But the racing is boring as fuck, imo. It's generally just a couple hours of follow the leader. I can't get into it.
Bahrain in a fortnight is a much faster track, lots more opportunity for overtaking on the straights.
I have absolutely no bloody idea how Abe Lincoln is from Bahrain.
The start is good, if theres going to be any drama it usually happens at the green light. After that it seems to be won on car reliability and pit stops.
I want to like F1, the cars are superb and the drivers are genuine athletes with serious skills, it just can't get into watching a bunch of cars going round a track though.
One thing I like about F1 is that it really is a team sport. From the wind tunnel testing to the guy with a wrench during the pit stops, it's not just down to the driver.
Yeah I agree, you see drivers seasons go to shit despite having a fast car due to mechanical faults.
Way back when Damon Hill went from hero to zero when he changed teams.
I hated McLaren losing Lewis Hamilton but he just outgrew us really.
Where did he go? My friend is on the red bull team. I sent the cunt a message the other day to see who's gonna win this year but I ain't heard shit back
Lewis? He won with Merc last year.
I don't follow that shit. Only reason I messaged my buddy was because someone asked me too.
I'm a pretty shitty friend now I think about it
