gpflep,
In all honesty, I agree. Outside of the 500, I have found the few races I tried to watch boring as hell. To top it off, the male Princess Sparkle gets way more attention than he deserves. I am talking about Graham Rahal. Fortunately he has a dad and the noncompetitive Indy to keep him racing. If he was in Nascar, then he wouldn't be anything but a Nationwide backmarker.

That is all I will say about this AA racing league. Now back to Nascar and F1

My new favorite game is Stop the Bots

Wouldn't that make him Prince Sparkle Horsey?

Let's all move on.

This is a F1 thread for sure, but we are motorsports fans, so off-topic posts on other series can and will happen, as will the occasional bashing of NASCAR and Princess Sparkle Pony.

Keep it flat out...

Scott Dixon wins the IndyCar race at Mid-Ohio. Great race after qualifying in the wet.
I think thats 9 winners in 15 races. The Championship is still wide open with 5 drivers in contention and only 3 races left.

I think you misunderstood Bond 007's meaning. He can speak for himself, of course, but I think I speak for most if not all of the regular posters here in making clear that we welcome the discussion of all motor sports related topics. In short, bring it on partner, your posts on such things will be as welcome as anyone's.

Last Saturday the National Geographic Channel ran a documentary about the Bugatti Veyron, entitled Bugatti Super Car. It was fascinating. The Veyron is the perfect toy for the Man Who Has Everything. If I recall correctly, a set of tires lasts 6,000 miles and their replacement cost is, If I recall correctly, $16,000. There was a bunch of other fun stuff in the documentary.

The tires are made to order to I believe. Or used to be when it first came out.
That show is probably being replayed. I'll keep an eye out for it. Thanks.

Reminds me of the McLaren MP-4/12C that got rear ended at a Concours I went to. A Jaguar XJ220 was behind him in the line up to the stage where everyone looks at the cars. The Jag had clutch problems and when he went to pull forward he hit the McLaren that was sitting still in front of him. He hit it so hard that the front of the Jag went under the back of the McLaren and damaged the frame and transmission of the McLaren and destroyed the front of the Jag. Thats an expensive fender bender.

Tut tut. That kind of money is a mere bagatelle for a Veyron owner.

So, I take it Alonso is basically saying that he doesn't want to stay at Ferrari after his contract expires?

ALONSO WANTS $50 MILLION PER YEAR TO STAY AT FERRARI

Hamilton apparently has an extensive collection of Ferraris. Not Mercedes? Ha! Imagine that.

He can go. Its a waste of his talent to stay. I'd love to see him win another couple WDC.
Get rid of Raikkonen too. Hire Hulkenberg and Alexander Rossi. Spend the rest on a better team. Maybe by 2016 they can start winning some races.

That is one big pile of cash.





Anybody know what he's making now? I think Schumacher was close to that but I don't remember.

I think he was making roughly $25 million in 2005.
