Even with a bit of rain, LeMan has some great weather today! Pretty cool to see some of those LMP cars go sideways on some of the wet parts of the track.

I can't argue against the opinion that the current formula is not in keeping with what most of us think of F1, but at some point, F1 needs to call their bluff. Threatening to leave F1 every few years is getting a bit tiring.
http://www.jamesallenonf1.com/2014/0...at-to-quit-f1/

So, was he misquoted? Not sure why Ferrari would deny the statements. As the James Allen article says, it's fairly common practice going back to Enzo.

I must say I am disappointed that something I read on the Internet may not be true. :-)

Interesting article.
Quote:
Ferrari is committed to F1 to at least the end of 2020 thanks to the deal struck between Montezemolo and Ecclestone two years ago. They and Red Bull were the first names on the list when the F1 impresario was locking down teams for the future and they both receive significant additional payments for their participation; Ferrari as longest serving team gets a large payment none of the others are entitled to. As the deadline of June 30 approaches for changes which can take effect next season and no sign of any meaningful cost savings for F1, it is the small teams who are under threat of not continuing in F1, not Ferrari.
There are signs that we could lose one team before the end of this season and two or three others aren’t far behind, as they struggle with the lopsided distribution of funds to teams which sees top teams like Ferrari take the lions share of the money.
Ferrari is in many ways the spine of F1 and it will always have the “nuclear” option up its sleeve of threatening to quit if it wants to strong arm through a change.

This is one of my big issues with F1. If one team is sooooo important, then it is no longer a sport and becomes more like dare I say it NASCAR. At least Nascar doesn't play favorites on doling out the prize money.




On the technical merits, I don't entirely disagree. Of course saying that everything has shifted to more of engine focus is kind of self serving. I found the aero exercise of the last decade boring as hell. Personally, I would like to see some sort of regulation creating aero caps like only so much downforce, etc. They could then free up the rest of the regs so cool things could be introduced or in the case of active suspension reintroduced.


I might add that in contrast to Luca's comments, Alain Prost has said that he thought using and conserving tires and fuel is a part of the race driver's craft.

My new favorite game is Save The Titanic

TWC offers FS2 in SD but I dont get it. I would have to pay $9/month for the Sports Package.

Should be 272 on Cox, but it looks like you don't have it.

Here's something.

Apparently, the French love the sound of the big American V8s.

Got my first Smart Phone last week last week (yeah, I know....I'm a Luddite).
I have to admit it is an amazing piece of kit, but I can't see using it as a viable alternative for watching races or movies.

Didnt know there was an all American team at LeMans. I knew Patrick Dempsey had dabbled in racing but had no idea he had bought a team. Best of luck to Dempsey Racing in the GTE Class!

Michael Schumacher out of coma.

"Formula One great Michael Schumacher is no longer in a coma and has been moved from a hospital in France where he had been receiving treatment since a skiing accident in December, to a Swiss hospital.

Schumacher left the hospital in Grenoble "to continue his long phase of rehabilitation," his manager, Sabine Kehm, said in a statement."

The new forum software does not seem to lend itself to uploading images, so the best I can do is link to a panorama I took yesterday at the Porsche Parade in Mobterey.

I was on the setup crew for the Concour D'Elegance, and got to snap a few notable Porsches with few spectators around. More to follow when I get home.

Those Concours are always fun. You must have friends in high places. The one in Monterey is supposed to be one of the best.

I think you may be thinking of Pebble Beach. This is not that but it is the most prestigious Porsche only Concours. It is in a different city each year.

To get close to the Gulf 917k was a thrill. My real fun starts Wednesday at the Autocross and a week from today at the Laguna Seca track day. :-)

Embedding images is a pain now. But you can just put the URL for an image in between [IMG] and [/IMG] tags.





If you upload the image to the forum you still need to find its URL before embedding it.

Alex Zanardi was driving a BMW Z4 in that Blancpain GT Series race at Brands Hatch. He started 17th and finished 5th! Bravo to The Man!

Just right (context) click on the image you want and select "copy image location"





Then click on the mountain looking thing in the editor...







Paste the image location into the dialog box






And voilà






That thing looks so ... tactical.

If you want to share a photo that's on your computer then you will need to upload it to a photobucket type site and rinse/repeat the instructions above. You can upload it to AVS via "manage attachments", but you will be saddled with a companion "thumbnail", which just screams rookie internet, and is not recommended.
