Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

My favourite Di Resta failed and I thought it would be a bright idea to drop kobi after he qualified last.

Otherwise I'd be rolling in the points Put Kobi back in and chose Spain as my bonus.

I have gone with Spain as my next track. Got shot of Glock and now have Petrov and Perez as my lower 2 drivers.

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

I'm a but gutted with tthe run up to this weekends race. A colleague of my wife was offered coorporate tickets to the race, but he's not really into F1 so offered it to my better half as he knows we are fans. Unfortunately, my niece is visiting for the first time since I moved here on that very weekend. so I can't go.

There may be a possibility of tickets for Monza though so fingers crossed.

It will be interesting to see what sort of effect this will have over the weekend.

I think it was inevitable that they would do something to stop Red Bull running away with the championships.

It looks similar to when Button won the first few races for Brawn. If it evens up the cars it will make for a closer championship.

Will it be reverse grids next?

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Im a total petrol head, I have had so many cars Ive lost count, but Ive never been to a F1 race weekend. Is it better than watching on the telly with the surround sound on the windows darkened and the missus serving regular tea?

Agree, but as it efffects most of the grid, it won't even them up any more as they will all possibly lose performance and RB will still be at the front

Exactly. The article seems to imply that it will have a particularly negative impact on Red Bull though
