Re: Jenson vs Kimi?

Kimi and Jensen would be great on the same team! But, Kimi would be faster. He just seems hungrier. I'm a fan of both of them but Jensen seems "safer" than Kimi. It seems that drivers who are prepared to push just a bit over the edge either do very well or are reckless disasters. Kimi seem...

Re: Will any of the drivers help Alonso?

I don't think so, I agree that they're all fighting for every position.

Imagine the scandal and conspiracy calls if it appears one of the torro rosso or ferrari engine cars does change the outcome of the race! I can't wait!

How will Schumi's last race be? Drama or not?

I bet the group will be pretty split on this one. Some expect him to cause some sort of drama or lose his cool.

I hate to say it, but I expect Schumi to have an uneventful boring race in Brazil. Just a Sunday drive, a safe mid-pack cruise.

Re: Racing Colours, what happened to them?

Re: Will Webber be on podium in Texas?

If the rumours are true - no. He (Webber) may be starting from the back of the grid for missing his weigh in. Just saw this also. I guess this is further proof of my inability to predict race results. If he does get sent to the back, he's done. It sure would be interesting to see how Mark does from...

The FIA has to do something in response to appease advertisers and TV networks. Yes I know I can hear the same language on television every day, but those are usually private programs. I think the lads are going to get a reprimand, probably financial.
