There was a race a few years ago where the grid "staff" were a mix of male and female. I wish I could recall when, I think it was a race where the cultural tastes were toned down, maybe an Arabian one?

Re: Raikkonen or Ricciardo at Red Bull, who would you prefer

Kimi, because he would be a good yardstick to measure Seb by whereas Ricciardo is still a relatively unknown quantity This is my thinking as well, in order to see Vettel as one of the greats we need to see him tested against other top line drivers, not that i wouldn't think that Ricciardo didn't de...

Re: Monaco GP Picture Thread

I like the James Hunt tribute helmets the best. Alonso's next. The worst is LH's. Don't like the cartoons all that much.

Seb's helmet would be fantastic if the woman image had been left off. It makes it a bit trashy instead of classy.

I really did like the drama of 2012 but if I had to pick just one, I'd pick a season in the Senna v Prost era. To see Senna live would be a dream.

Re: What should the spirit of F1 be?

I say F1 is about "Top Performance." The words apply to all of the aspects.

The things that bug me about F1 are things that challenge the concept of top performance. Things like politics, team orders, cheating, etc.

I rated it a 7 because I was disappointed that Alonso's wing failed and that Seb was driving away so early. I know mechanical problems like the wing problem are part of the game, but I hate it when stuff like that changes (I think, speculation I admit) the result materially. Enjoyed it though!
