  2. Can't forget that long, painful, quadruple-apex left hander :D
  3. ahh... turn 8 :D
  4. I'm not sure, but I think Ferrari are gonna come alive this race
  5. Lol the PSB guys pwned the thread :p first 3 posts all by the guys from PSB.

    Hmm... I think so aswell, lmracing. I'm sure they'll wake up from their sleep in the Turkish GP :)

    I hope a resurrection will come from BMW. If not .. Then.. *cries*..

    I think this will be really hard to win this year for Massa. But i hope so too. He deserves a record here :)
  8. Massa is a rocket in Istanbul :), hard times are comming up for Brawn GP :rotfl:
  9. This race will totally suit Massa - he loves an understeering car and that's practically the only way to drive turn 8. Ferrari are back on form, so it's just going to be a question of how much Brawn can get out of their car again - the track should also suit Button's driving style.
  10. ah, Vettel on pole which is the outside of the track, which means Button will be leading out of turn 1 :D
  11. So what happened to the Ferrari's?

    Button for the win, again :)
  12. I think they are fuelled for 2-3 more laps than the top guys. But I don't think this will give them a huge advantage.
  13. How many of you guys saw the BBC coverage, particularly the interview with Nelson Piquet. Is that a guy under pressure or what. He seemed totally dejected, a broken man almost. I almost felt sorry for him, especially in the comments after with Eddie Jordan and David Coulthard when they said he had a "very pushy mother" :rotfl: Poor Guy.
  14. i think he needs to go back to GP2 for a season or two cos he's not very good in an F1 car at all.

    Totally agree Steven, loadsa pressure on him. Especially with Aolonso as your teammate!

    I honestly thouight Webber had pole there but ended up 4th which is annoying :( Good that Button isnt pole though, I was getting bored of his "GETTTTT INNN THERE!!" after every qually.

    Nice, Webber heavier then guys ahead of him :)
  18. BMW in Q3 finally with their double diffuser.

    Sorry for Piquet. On Speed he said that he had some kind of brake problem. Frankly that car is not good, either. Alonso is often very light on fuel.
  19. Geez! Bourdais must have his mother-in-law on board. Look how heavy his car is!! :rotfl:
