Formula 1 2009 Malaysia
« on: April 03, 2009, 05:25:20 am »


Kimi is a rasta?
Both Williams were fastest cars in first praccy.. Too early to say anything bout anythin again..
I bet the drivers hate Kers.. too much extra hassle each lap.. too unreliable..
It seems to me like an alien sci-fi device that many try to get to work but no one really knows properly how to do it right.. Still i like the extra action we get because of it.

I'm a little surprised by the lack of pace of the bruan cars, they must be holding back.

Kimi did top time on the second praccy  :)
Maybe Brawn simply dont work that well in here, or maybe they just havent yet found a decent setup for the car.. Im sure tomorrow it gets again more clear where everyone stands.

I tried to watch this on the SPEED network.  Pft... Commercials every two minutes it seems.

If someone has a link again this week, I'd appreciate the hookup. :)

Hahaha.. was that a "thank you" through international Signlanguage using the longest finger of the hand to you personally Jarkko?

Bloody funny, but in retrospect, I salute those who gave me free broadcast for the first race and opening my eyes to what might be a nice championship...

Woof ~ woof

So you'll be watching the broadcast with Finnish commentary?  Man, I wish I could get that in Canada.  I don't like watching the BBC coverage because they're so biased towards the british drivers.  I'd rather watch coverage where the commentators are biased towards the Finns :)

They suck tbh.. They are very biased towards finnish, they seem to think Nico as finnish (only thing Finnish is his dad.. he is not Finnish even the smallest bit.. thats what he said also), not to mention they often dont seem to know whats going on properly.. lol
So they suck.. not to mention the worlds most irritating theme tune.. So id rather watch bbc tbh.. but i want good image and 100% certainty i can see the races easily.

Agreed about SPEED Marcus. I don't watch F1 live anymore. DVR it all and skip the commercials.  :yes:
I do like the commentators better than the old days though. Hobbs and Matchett are both knowledgeable. Windsor is ok, sometimes a little irritating, Varsha is professional and sets up Hobbs well for inside comments.
I will never forget back in the late 80's early 90's when Senna was cleaning everyone's clock with otherwordly driving displays, Chris Economaki was the lead commentator and came on and said, "Well here we go again and another boring F1 race with Senna running away with it." (something to that effect) I would have liked to put my foot up his boring old ass! I think it was his last year commentating F1.  lol

Didnt have proper chance to watch it though, with kids so its impossible to concentrate on the race.

Yeah, an interesting race to say the least. Not a great start by Jenson but made up for it at the end of the stint with a couple of great laps. Felt a bit like a NASCAR race waiting out the rain.  lol

good race apart from being cut short. Well done jensen for keeping cool after poor start. some good and bad tyre choices all round. timo glock very good, kimi very bad.  :hmm:

some great close racing, just like SJ lol ;)

very enjoyable. looking forward to next one. chocks away

Its too bad the monsoons came to end the race was looking like a very nice race there for a while. Lots of passing in the last few laps under slippery conditions I was really enjoying that then the red flag came. Oh well lets hope they finish the next one, very interesting season so far nice to see the underdogs doing well.

Don't know if anyone has already posted this site, but an excellent one for engineering talk about F1 and other forms.
