It's nice that Ferrari are well and truly back to their pre Schumacher/Brawn/Todt ways. They really ought to paint the cars a darker red and paint the wings black.

I really do wonder when (if?) Vettel is going to win another championship.

What I think we should do is a lottery system where we all enter, and get randomly assigned a 2015 driver and we end up having to write next seasons Worst Thread driver intro for that driver, and if you are anything other than complimentary you get toxx-banned.

Mostly because I want to see learningcurve get Lewis Hamilton.
This... is a good idea. I would like to put my name down.

A jubilant Lewis Hamilton has been shaken from the elation of his second F1 world championship after realising that he must spend the next few months with the sound of Nicole Scherzinger.

‘Lewis is used to having a high pitched, painful noise right next to his ear,’ said a source close to the driver. ‘But for 19 weekends a year he can at least drown her out by driving his F1 car. In the off season, however, there’s only so many times he can claim he needs to ‘go away testing’.’

Sources say Hamilton’s other complaints about having to spend the whole winter with his girlfriend include ‘shower full of shampoo products’, ‘yoghurt for every meal’ and ‘still doesn’t understand difference between qualifying and race’.

‘After winning his second title Lewis can’t wait for the next season to begin,’ our mole continued. ‘Not because he wants to start trying for a third championship but because it means he can get away from that voice. It’s like crows being punched through a wood chipper.’

Aww, I would love to see one of those in person, especially landing or taking off. Those things are loving crazy also since when did the drat Russkies steal our space shuttle design? That poo poo is like straight up some Chinese-auto-industry-style theft.
They copied the Space Shuttle design, yes. The Russian government was baffled as to why the Americans went from the Saturn/Apollo to the shuttle, figuring it must have some crazy potential ability that they didn't know about yet.

Soooo they cloned it. Whilst the launch system (Engines were on the Energia rocket rather than the shuttle) was different, they were fundamentally very similar.

Their clone, Buran, made one spaceflight, orbited the earth, and then landed. All automated.

Buran Wiki Article

Also, they got their hands on a B29 Stratofortress, and made a like-for-like copy. So identical that the rudder pedals in the cockpit had "Boeing" on them.

Alonso got into a fatal karting accident in 1995 and everything that has happened after that is him living out his boyhood dream of being a F1 driver. In reality he's in purgatory and last month's crash made him start to wake up.

NOTICE ME

Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya



Circuit Length: 2.892 miles (4.655 km)
Race Distance: 66 laps, 190.826 miles (307.024 km)
Lap record: 1:21.670 (Raikkonen, Ferrari, 2008)
2014 Pole: 1:25.232 (Hamilton, Mercedes)
2014 Fastest Lap: 1:28.918 (Vettel, Red Bull Racing)

In some ways, coming to The Circuit de Catalunya is celebrated with it being the start of the European leg of the season, and enthusiastic (racist) spectators it attracts. In others, it's hated for the typically dull racing thanks to the many high speed corners, so the best aero package will typically prevail. Overtaking is rather difficult, with exception of getting within DRS range of the car ahead on the main straight, and getting into a braking duel at Turn 1. To try to encourage more overtaking, the sweeper at Turn 14 was turned into a rather sharp chicane in 2007. All this has proved to do is ruin the flow of the circuit. Turn 3 has been the site of many an accident over the years, notably robbing Hamilton of the 2010 World Championship, and Alonso of the last 20 years of his life.
Oh, and Schumacher curb-stomped everyone here in 1995 in the wet.
