How about you make your own thread for this? If we wanted to discuss motoGP then we'd make a thread about it.

True... True...
Just trying to share the love amongst other petrol heads but alas if your so narrow minded to entertain the concept I'll not waste my time any more.
Should have expected such a response from someone who has anus car (anus car = everyone's got one) and doesn't have the creative ability to make up a user name without mentioning his motor...

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Come over from the dark side and watch some real racing!
www.motogp.com

One Mr Valentino Rossi will be riding a big red Ducati Desmosedici next year - even the Pope is going to watch!

F1 = boring
MotoGP = everything F1 lacks!
As a long time follower of MotoGP and F1, that's a bit unfair, there's been a few races esp when Rossi was out of action when Lorenzo was romping away few great starts but then they only do 20odd laps and it's all over.

My fave rider Stoner has been a bit crap n all, hoping he does better at Honda. Anyway yes sod off get yer own thread if you think we're boring

Thank God they don't do more laps. I don't think I'd survive the thrill of watching 55 laps. I'd drop dead from the excitement.

Hey mate i see you have a red neg rating already lol oh no it wasn't from 'anus man' was it?

Although anus man does have a point you can't come on here and call us f1 fans boring and not expect some sort of defence, or stir up the grammatical wrath of anus man! Oh i love that hehe

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Could we have a thread with "Trashtalk".
Very sportive that but not used in F1 much I don't think. They are all gentlemen.

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Wow well for the record as much as i found it amusing him calling you it, I was i guess laughing at both of you, it was a pretty juvenile jibe afterall. (but yes it tickled me at the time, especially as it was aimed at you!)
Im sorry i laughed at him calling you an anus, and me adding to it, ok?

Come on you're pretty quick to bite or jump in and express your opinion at people, rather than ignore something, same as me really, that could of just as easily been me he/she took a pot shot at. Nothing i said i meant in malice (apart from the anti Alonso f####ts)

Anyway to keep the balance ive red blobbed you (as per our small off line over a single burning candle love chat)

Duuude! Seriously, how did you get through life so far by being so 'sensitive' to name calling. Especially as you call yourself Anus1909 / Porsch1909 - same difference. I think your group membership says it all...

Group 1. The Green Party.
Ok - This to me says your a very confused individual and are constantly looking for acceptance in society. You post chats on the F1 thread, give yourself a 'cool' name of Anus1909 and then sign up for the Greens. I think you want to butter your toast on both sides my friend!

Group 2. Troll spotting!
Ok - this to me says your single, not that blessed in the looks department and reverting to the old cave man method of seduction (i.e. going out late at night, alone with large club in hand - or maybe some Roofies)!

In summary:
So there you go. My Doctor Frasier Crane moment is over. If I've helped your realise a few character flaws, then you are very welcome and you can have this session gratis. Otherwise - get over yourself and take a chill pill mate!

No worries mate, indeed indeed

Well there was alot of Hype about Hulkenberg, and Senna last year, they were both relatively dissapointing weren't they

What's this new Gp2 champion like taking the Hulks place? Dont follow GP2 much!

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

thinking about rookies and F1, does F1 make drivers worse? We see drivers in gp2 etc pulling off banzai moves week in week out, starting at the back and making there way to the front etc, they move into f1 and show some of that magic, yet a couple of seasons in and they seem to lose all that spark and seem happy to just sit behind the guy in front

I think the problem is split between:
- the aerodynamics of F1 cars making it difficult (to say the least) to follow closely enough round a corner to get a slipstream on the straight
- mind-bogglingly short braking distances meaning a driver can rarely wait an extra few hundredths of a second to outbreak his opponent or he'd be off the road/run wide (seen this many times this season)
- F1 cars have grown in length quite considerably, especially this past season with the introduction of full tanks. To actually get ahead of another driver you have to travel quite a distance! Even the best drivers are finding it very difficult to judge the length of their cars now - thinking Vettel chopping across Webber and Hamilton, Hamilton driving into whoever in Monza, Webber hitting back of Lotus in Valencia and chopping across Hamilton in Singapore etc.

So ideally I'd like to see shorter cars, with less wake turbulence, and smaller or different material composition brakes.

But Monza is very convenient for the Zurichers is it not? Direct train to Milan
Monza is AWESOME for several reasons:
  • Easy to get to from Switzerland.
  • Great atmosphere, even if you are not Tifosi.
  • Great park surrounding, also the Parabolica has to be an F1 pilgrimage.
  • I know a great Camping Site not 10 mins walk from the Prima Variante where they cook their own pasta and have a bar in the evening.
  • Night out in Milan for the very keen.

I'm thinking of taking a drive down for that one.
