  6. I hope you have fun. It will be the first and last time you will get to hear the awesome sounds of the V8 engines. In 2014 F1 will be using wood chipper engines in the cars. :thumbsdown:

  7. I just had to hear the V8's in person before they were replaced by vacuum cleaner V6's. If only they still used V10's, I think we all would be in heaven. :p

  9. Just watched on U Tube a episode of Equinox where they visited Keith Duckworths factory as he tried to build a Turbo in the 80's. Originally a straight 6 but poor reliability moved them to a V. The Engine Block mold's where made from Wood and chiseled to the exact shape for the Aluminum to form. Those where the good old days.
     
  10. Bottas is on fire!

    And poor Valsecchi disappointed. That close up of his face during Q2 said it all.

    Didn't expect this polesitter at all
     
  13. Bloody hell Vettel :D

    0.25s off Webber after 2 sectors, goes pole by 0.1. What a final sector!
     
  14. Well not after 2 sectors at least :p
     
  15. Bottas did great but I think he is starting with a pretty flat spotted tyre, he locked up a few times
     
  16. It was more the case of Webber messing up his final sector then Vettel being the messiah :p. Webber lost 2 tenths on his fastest lap compared to his previous.

    Plus he will most likely mess up his start anyway so no need to be in the way of everybody on pole position.
     
    • Haha Haha x 1
  18. And Vettel messed up his first two sectors. Swings and roundabouts.
     
  19. Yeah he'll be fighting with Pastor after turn 1 :p
