    Lol i never thought that way. Interesting and funny find Mr. Birney :)

    I believe Red Bulls will dominate this race.
     
  4. It will be in the wet. This is Spa! One off the best...

    With the weather that we have here now it could get interesting. Two weeks off warm temps (maybe even a bit too warm for Belgium) and now the last week is combined with alot off clouds suddenly passing by and sometimes rain out, sometimes not. Temps aren't dropping realy though.

    And then you have a real micro climate on the track in Spa too...

    Only some days away, hupla!

    I'm happy to see that Raikkönen is going well here as usual, as I placed a bet on him:)
     
  8. Raikone loves Spa, and he set a fastest laptime to there...

    This will be interesting, one off the best weekends in F1 i reckon!! :)
    Probably a personal thing though... :clap:
     
  9. Almost the whole field was within one second, except Rosberg and Badoer, that's amazing!
     
  10. Badoer 10th in wet :)
    Badoer 20th in dry :(

    Raikkonen vs. Hamilton again? If it's wet, maybe. And I hope to God it's wet!! :D
     
  11. The Brawns are well of the pace

    Badoer would be still 20th in wet aswell, he finished 10th because at the start of that practice session there was no rain, and first 10 finishers made times in drier conditions. So he is still veeeery bad :neutral:
     
  13. Now the rumor is that Fisichella will takes his place at Monza.
     
  14. Who makes these up?
     
  15. This one came from Vitantonio Liuzzi, but I've just read an interview with Fisichella and he said Ferrari didn't call him.

    Edit: I just noticed the one with Fisichella is older, so noone knows..

    I don't know if you can find an english version, I read these interviews on f1hirek.hu which is hungarian.
     
  16. Finally a real track again. :D
     
  17. why should Fisicho join Ferrari, he's just gotten pole in the FORCE INDIA !!! It's those surprises that we have missed in F1 for ages :)
     
  18. This is the most bizarre championship I have ever seen! FIsichella on pole WTF!!

    3 of the 4 title contenders in 8th, 9th and 14th.

    Oh I do love Spa. Like Ivo says 'a real track'
     
  19. SPOILER WARNING

    I don't believe it. I do not believe it.

    GIANCARLO FISICHELLA HAS POLE POSITION FOR THE BELGIAN GRAND PRIX.

    This is just unbelievable, Force India have pole!! Epic congratulations to Vijay and the guys! :clover:
     
  20. LOL . i hope he gives them a run for there money tomorrow.
    He so deserves this, for not giving up and keep on trying....even at PLOF India.

    Congrats Giancarlo
