Re: Thank you Fernando!

As an F1 fan, full respect to Indianapolis and the Indy 500 race. We use to think in Europe that oval racing is boring and all that stuff, and we associate it to things like NASCAR and so on. But Indy is no NASCAR, its a legendary and historic race that besides strategy and luck it takes skill and b...

Re: It's funny with all his bad luck I actually like Alonso

To say that Alonso was "at the center of the spying scandal" is completely ridiculous and j man should correct himself. Stepney and Coughlan were, no one else. Depends on how you look at it. It's not like he just knew about it, he actively discussed stolen data and that they should try things Ferra...

Re: It's funny with all his bad luck I actually like Alonso

Wow, so much hate both of you... even with accusations that you have absolutely no idea about. Except for his knowledge of Crashgate not being proven, I'd say nothing is imagined there.

Re: It's funny with all his bad luck I actually like Alonso

I found Alonso quite difficult to like for much of his career. I've never doubted his talent ever since his first year in a competitive car in 2003 - two poles, a victory and incredible consistency for such a young driver earned him 6th in the championship in what was clearly the 4th best car. But ...

Re: Indy 500 2017

I'm not convinced there is any strategy beyond being lucky enough to have your pitstop match up with the timing of the cautions. The whole race seemed a complete lottery. They may as well pick a starting order out of a hat and then have a 30 lap sprint race because that was the only bit that matter...
