Down goes Michael!
« on: October 08, 2006, 02:03:35 pm »
What a beautiful beautiful race last night. Schumacher's championship chances are all but dashed. Alonso for the win! I'm glad I stayed up to watch the race.

What are the odds that they race Suzuka the night after you guys raced it. :)

Here's hoping Brazil gets some rain and we have a repeat of the first half of the Chinese GP.

Wooo!

Later

you're not really Schumi fans, are you? :P
My hardest critic for him would be that he doesn't pay his taxes in Germany where he had found the infrastructure for his career in motor sports..

sorry, the pic is idiotic. But before you'll say I've got no humour, I better quit this thread. >:D

edit: alles klar....it was a bit exaggerated in my eyes, so thank you for removing. I haven't got any problems with the rest, I don't want to convert anybody to a Schumi fan ;) So keep on with posting...

Ehhhh, I thought it was a shame that Michael went bust.
I'm new here, I don't know how it works yet 8)
I just would have loved  ::) to see the championship go down to the wire at Interlagos although I agree that Alonso has had his share of nonsense this year.

I'm trying hard to be 'moved' by F1 .. but it's damned hard... so much technology, so little of the 'balls and bluster' of the old TC stuff.... maybe I'm just getting old but give me a bloke smoking a fag as he puts his helmet on, shimming up the top springs with a piece of 4'x2' and then driving his cortina like a bastard ... to me, that's entertainment :)

you might enjoy the next race in Brazil. It may rain, and rain races in any car is fun to watch :)

I was soooooooo happy to me Micheals engines go boom. he's been living a charmed life for too long at ferrari. i'll be happy when he is gone. The way Alonso is going through, i dunno if i want to cheer for him anymore. the thing i hate most are rich pricks. >:(

well, if alonso is going to mclaren next season, he'll need all the cheering he can get. I don't think they've won a single race this season.

Got to agree with you there, Pierre. 

I caught a glimpse of the highlights last night, and they're just glued to the track with downforce, tearing through the bends as if the video on fast forward!

Bit more driver input and a bit less technology does it for me too. 

Eeeeh...  It's not like it were in our day...  I remember when all this were trees...
