  2. Will be interesting to see if RBR can go the other way like they did last year.

    Enough downforce to make up for it in the turns while suffer some on the straights.
    Usually that doesn´t work at all at Monza so it was a nice contrast to see.
    It was really do or die for him as well, had Alonso stayed in the front it would have been like Hamilton/Schumacher pretty much.

    Also great that it´s just a couple of days until we get our next fix of F1.

  3. DRY Weather all the weekend was another good thing
    And i believe Lotus will use its DDRS here to gain Massive Speed Advantage
    But Can't count out RBR
  4. I can't anymore. An admin will need to make one.
  5. Make a Thread with Pole and Ask Admin to Merge it with this one
    It will be easy for him

    Hm didn't work and both the poll and thread are gone. Could you set up another one? I'm sorry, I guess I selected the wrong thread as target by accident. :(
  8. You selected the correct one, because the post in it (which was me tagging you) came here.

    I'm away now.

    But the poll isn't in here. I thought the same but I guess XF doesn't import the poll, only the posts. VB is importing both.

    Wasn't merged, I recreated it from scratch - post by post. ;)

    Have fun! Despite me hating Monza I'm still hoping Lewis is making it to the finish line this time.

  12. Well I too want Lewis to finish this race Except his Master class Win in Hungary and a Low Point Finish in British GP He had awful DNF's Since Valencia as None of them are his fault
    But i'm Counting on RBR and Vettel as usual
  13. Just to let you know, you can know just tell me when things need fixing in the F1 section.

  14. I think it's between Schumacher (Spa showed again that they have great straightline speed (will be terribly slow through Parabolica though)), Hamilton (best car & strongest engine) and Alonso (Ferrari always make a special effort for Monza).

    I just went with Schumacher :)
  15. By the way, the "unknown Lotus driver" has now been confirmed as Jerome D'Ambrosio
  16. I don't think RBR can try it the other way around this year. I would expect them go arrive in damage limitation mode this year. Their car just isn't that dominant in the corners like last year and they still have problems in top speed.

    I guess it will look similar to Spa: Mclaren in front and Ferrari, Lotus and RBR close behind them. Also i expect something to see from Sauber again.

    Lotus is btw not using DDRS at Monza
  17. Yup i would have changed it but i don´t think i have gotten all the privileges yet.
    Bram is a busy man so maybe in the coming days i can be fully involved in the F1 section.

    Nice title huh? :)
