Toro Rosso means Red Bull and is indeed the RB junior F1 team. Thats where Ricciardo came from.
Whats F3? You been smokin crack again?

I don't think you guys are really getting it. The reason F1 is going to places like CutHer and the like is their govs are paying Bern a ton of money. It doesn't matter how many people come to the actual race as those govs want the prestige that comes with hosting a F1 race even if they lose money on the actual event. Indy would still have a F1 race if Tony would have been willing to pay more money and maybe go in the hole just for the pleasure of hosting a race.

One should realize that I don't blame Bernie for going for the money. I think a lot of us would do the same in his position. My problem is I don't want to hear him crying when these countries decide it isn't worth it and dump him like former engine manufacturers.

My new favorite game is Save The Titanic

He's lived there for so long. Next time I see him at a MotoGP race I'll ask him, he was always cool to talk to at Laguna Seca since he lives so close. Wayne talking to Gil Campbell in this photo.

For a second US Grand Prix, someone should build a track in south Florida.

In the past, racing down here, particularly when it was downtown Miami, brought an incredible international crowd from south America and all over, and was really a monster event. At first Miami doesnt sound like a good location, but there is an international flair to the Miami area that would really be great for F1.

Plus the drivers and teams could party on South Beach!!!

never take life seriously

I remember being like, "Wtf? but this is still awesome!". General traffic on the the road will be that loud and continuous. A race happens only so often and for a short couple hours. Ugh. Pretty lame. Why even have a race track? Any a-hole with a modded exhaust can make much more noise and do it at odd hours.

Anyway... F1 on Seca would be friggin awesome.
The run up the hill. The Sound Shack is off to the right out of the frame. A blight on an otherwise wonderful track.

I stand corrected. Thanks for the clarification. Maybe next time I will actually read the article instead of skimming the title and then spouting off!

On another note, that Formula Renault 3.5 car he is driving looks better than RB's F1 car! It must be the nose.

Darwin does not always get his man. I bet though, that he will have additional opportunities with this guy.

Is this the same Eric Boullier that last week was saying that McLaren would soon need to decide on a 2015 driver line up, cast some doubt on the continued services of their existing drivers?

Just having some fun with Google Translator.

Hey! Watch this!

I was actually surprised that the forum would accept Russian characters. Now if I could just paste a freaking pic from my phone without needing a 3rd party app. :-)
