Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

I sent him some...I think....

I've not received the negative though. Perhaps we should change the rules so that we choose the best that isn't a RBR car

Schumacher to quit after Sepang

Unless he starts scoring serious points

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Yup

I like this one:

Helmut Marko is not ruling out making a move for Lewis Hamilton, perhaps as imminently as in time for the 2012 season.

After a recent round of speculation, during which Red Bull team boss Christian Horner described Hamilton as a "great driver", the 2008 world champion insisted he is committed to McLaren.

But Hamilton also said in Australia: "Of course, I'm going to be in formula one for some time, and you never know which way the wind will take you."

At Red Bull, Sebastian Vettel's future is firmly secure, but his current teammate Mark Webber - who had a dire start to the 2011 season in Melbourne - is signed up only to the end of the year.

"First we have to see how the season goes for Mark and what he decides," Red Bull's F1 consultant Marko told Sport Bild.

"Definitely with his aggression and his speed, Hamilton must always be a topic," the Austrian added.

"Our philosophy is to have the quickest drivers together in our team," said Marko.

F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone said he would be happy to see Vettel and Hamilton together at Red Bull.

"Both of them are a gift for formula one, even more if they were in the same team," he said.

However someone pointed this out, so this 'rumour' didn't just come out this morning:

Bad news - unfortunately it wasn't - only on BBC1 HD
Good news - spoken to Cablecom and they are aware of BBC1 HD and they even plan on carrying it. Just don't know when.

Probably true, but a bit of a kick in the teeth for Webber.

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Lo chaps long time.. what's been going on here then.

Well DRS 'FAIL' quel surprise.

Are they going to run it on both the front and back straights as Malaysia, im sure that's a fiecly debated topic at the moment.
Anyone wanting to overtake on the first straight will lose out on the 2nd, (if they dont have any sort of pace).

Will Redbull run their KERS or is Neweys masterplan bullshit and it is actually because it keeps overheating?

As usual my money is on Alonso, showed good pace, in Aussie if it wasn't for the obvious issue they had with getting temps in the tyres for Qually.
Although saying that through P3 let alone Q3 he was running that car to the edges of the circuit with no real grip. Much better balance in the race.

Was also please to see Button so feisty this year, almost reminiscent of Brasil 2009 until he made that rookie move on Massa.

Looking forward to an exciting weekend with i guess a bit of added rain. Webber is strong here too, want to see that finger pointing bratt have to earn his podium from further back, hope his KERS overheats off the line

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Aye cheers Kev

So what we all saying about the weekends race. What happened to Mercedes i thought Schumacher announced "were right on RB's tail" that was a bit of a faux pas.

And what about Bore.. erHeidfield, had a big debate on another forum 90% people reckoning it was great to have him in the team, bet a fiva he would finish lower to Petrov... well. Seems he was so boring not even the F1 producer noticed he was cruising round with considerable dammage to the bodywork covering the right air duct feeding the rad/exhaust etc.

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Always liking the underdogs, I really like the Sauber duo, hungry fighters looking for some points (rather, to keep them!) plus of course Button over Hamilton.

Welcome to our little F1 thread
Thanks. Little as in 12 pages?

I do like the little dabble here and there on Betfair laying off some bets... in financial options speak, selling the at-the-moneys and buying deep outsiders, sort of like buying the tail risk and either taking a strangle or straddle position for the front runners. If that makes sense...
