F-1 Starts - Page 8

post #211 of 254
So Heidfeld signs for BMW, what does that do for the silly season?
post #212 of 254
Didn't see that. Where is it?
post #213 of 254
Here's hoping for a wet track. (not a downpour)
post #214 of 254
Well, you got your wet track Slatz. Exciting race. I was a little suprised that the dry tires never worked out.
post #215 of 254
It was a pretty exciting race.
I'm not sure Sato got a fair shake though. From what I read it didn't sound much different that Jaun Pablo and Tiago. THere must not of been much footage or we'd have seen it by now.
post #216 of 254
I agree about Sato. A shame that he probably won't e back next year. He hasnn't had a great year, but he is a racer and I like having him in the sport.
post #217 of 254
Too bad, I've never been a Button fan. Sato has about as big a set as anyone out there.
He walked by my table and waved at someone in the room (not me) Saturday night in Idianapolis.

Just watched a Tivo of Wind Tunnel. Bob Varsha said, and I'd heard elswhere that there was going to be an announcment about the USGP and the refund checks. Anyone heard anything? It's Friday.
post #219 of 254
Looks like Button finally got things straightened out.
post #220 of 254
US Grand Prix back in Indianapolis July 2, 2006.

I think I saw on the news refund checks started going out last week?? Or maybe real soon. I know there was some kind of announcement.
post #221 of 254
I saw the listing today for the USGP but no news on the checks or free tickets.

The check came in the mail today with an offer that if I buy two tickets by Oct 21st, I'll get two free ones "as close as possible" to my other two.
The chances of getting two good seats on this deal are slim at best I'd guess. On the other hand the four tickets could be "trading stock".

Looks like Fernando is going to wrap it up.
post #225 of 254
he put in a stonking lap with the improved Renault engine - well deserved pole. Shame abut Kimi losing it.
post #226 of 254
I didn't see the race (I have it on TIVO) but it sounded pretty good. Not a good one for the red cars I guess.
One more to go. Not much left to settle I guess.
post #227 of 254
I finally watched the tape from last weekend. Best race in a long time. Most passing I can remember.
ryan should be happy. Quite a drive by Kimi.
Got to go. Qualifying is starting for China.
post #228 of 254
I just slept through the Chinese GP - by accident/hangover, and now I've read that it was an exciting finish to the season. The replay is on shortly.
post #229 of 254
Not bad. I set my alarm but couldn't wake up at 1:00 AM. Thank goodness for TIVO. It certainly didn't measure up to last week. There were a few fights but mostly a parade.
Alanso said they had more but didn't use it.

Is a hangover an "accident"?
post #230 of 254
Best part of the race : Alonso singing "we are the champions" on the team radio when crossing the finish line.
#2 : Briatore on the podium, looking as he is crying. He's not. Alonso just pours half a bottle of champagne in his eyes.
I'm not sure Raikkonen and Dennis would have looked half as happy, had they been in Alonso and Briatore's shoes...
/ end of gallic bragging...

Props to Alonso and Renault
post #232 of 254
He won as many races as Kimi, so there can't be as many sour grapes on that one.
The ITV commentary pointed out that Alonso should stick to what he's good at, and not enter Pop Idol...
post #233 of 254
I'll second those two.
You didn't answer my "philisophical" question.
post #234 of 254
Slatz, it was too deep for me...
post #235 of 254
Did you look in the bottom of the glass?
post #236 of 254
Check out the November issue of Road and Track. Peter Egan writes about our F-1 bike ride.

post #238 of 254
Slatz, did you see the Grand Prix Masters?
Looks like that could be a good series!
post #239 of 254
I was going to post about that last night. Nige is back.

Where is Prost?

Did you see mansell's daughter?:
