I remember it being funnier. Oh well, here it is.
and from the related videos... That horrid but dirty blown diffuser sound around the parabolica.
yeah i remember seeing that. i thought you meant the radio broadcast that was silenced when he heard about his drive-through.
i wonder why they were so concerned about saving the engine for a bad alternator
Sorry, one last brag.... my photo from the photography stand on the Parabolica.
Who knows, especially with F1 levels of expected perfection, but maybe a lesson learned from the European GP or conflicts with KERS?
So sick. Makes me want to grow up to be a F1 camera man.
They don't have batteries (well non-KERS batteries) do they? I'd guess that killing the fuel and oil pumps could have a nasty effect, also not sure where the valves would sit?
i do believe they have a battery on board, though it obviously isnt there for starting. they are really small which could be why they were concerned (of it running dry and the car completely dying.)
i suppose you are right since they are probably dry sump and losing power would be an issue. the valves are pneumatic but probably also controlled electrically somehow .
edit: of course, Scarb's blog has moar info
wow, a legend in F1 has passed.
If you haven't read his book, it's worth a read. If you can't find a copy, pm me and I'll mail you mine as long as you promise to pass it on It's a short read, but good.
Perez to McLaren...didn't really expect that. Sucks to be DiResta, because apparently Massa might be safe. And does Schumacher retire? He must, right? Or does he go to Sauber?
i just bought steve olvey´s book a couple weeks ago from amazon (still waiting for delivery).
will get watkins´ book. am always very interested in tales and anecdotes from racing.
Cool I'll pm you when I get to a computer.
Hamilton to Merc, Schumi out ( maybe sauber) and perez to McLaren....worst kept "secret."
Massa said he will more then likely be with Ferrari next year and rightfully so. Alonso even said, no one else would/could compare to him
so long Schumi. if only you had a better car.
sh!tty news that Speed is losing their F1 broadcast rights next year and will be going to a all sports format.
I love listening to Matchett, Hobbs and Buxton...i could do without Varsha i think
moving to nbc....
i saw that but didnt see if that was official. they do an okay job broadcasting the Indy car series and a handful of other series. . thankfully we'll still have live broadcasts of races
"leave me alone, i know what im doing"- Kimi
congrats to Kimi for finally winning one this year
Kimi sound bite.
anybody headed to austin?
What a hell of a race. I might be biased as a Kimi fan, perhaps?
How about Vettel forcing past Button? That took big balls for a few extra points, a DNF would have been terrible for him. Also, scary scary scary seeing Rosberg go over the top like that.
enjoyed the f bombs on the podium.
was reading an article on how the teams have learned to curse over their in-car transmissions so it doesnt get broadcasted for everyone to hear
Pretty excited for this race, any way to watch it in the US? I usually just download it, but want to watch it live (in HD, not some terrible web broadcast.)
I'd like to see Alonso do well, but my money is on Vettal.
So bummed I couldnt make it to the race this year but I'm looking forward to watching on TV. I hope there are no hiccups here that could trickle down the line and affect the other 2 prospects in North America.
The last USGP that I was really excited for was in 2005 and, well, that one didn't turn out so well. Like you said, hoping for no hiccups here. Watching the onboards this morning, it looks like a fantastic track.
What are the other 2 prospects?
its on Speed tomorrow starting at 1:30 as usuall
i didnt think there was anything else lined up in the US besides the NJ one..if that ever happens.
i saw the turnout for qualies today and it looked packed, which is awesome. the track and circuit look amazing.
Excited to see the Diffey, Hobbs and Matchett will be on NBC next year. still hoping that Buxton is the pit reporter
I didnt know speed broadcasted it, this would be even better if I had it. I guess my comcast account doesnt get it. Should be good to have it on NBC though.
I knew it was leaving speed, didn't know it was going to NBC. Does this mean they'll time delay every race broadcast though?...
No. They said they'll have the majority of them live like Speed but will have some time delayed when their air on NBC.
Speed was saying Ferrari broke the seal to Massa's transmission which earned him a 5 grid spot penalty which moves Alonso to the clean side of the track. I love Ferrari
the broadcasters impersonation of the mechanic explaining it to the judges a couple of minutes ago was funny as sh!t...
man it's a huge deal, i'm only 2 hours away from the track and couldnt watch it on TV. That sucks. What also sucks is I could have gotten in on the $150 tickets but nobody wanted to go that that time. Then just last week the same people got excited about it and paid $1500 to go. I cannot afford. Fvck that.
I love when the championship comes down to Brazil. Let's hope Vettel has a KERS problem next race!
if SF doesnt protest this, ill be pissed. they have until the 30th
That's not the pirelli light is it?
I think the Autosport article is a good summary:
Typical of F1 that there are such intricacies to even the yellow flag rule.
yeah ive read Whitting's ruling on another site. i too think it is dumb that there can be different variations of yellow and green lights/flags.
