Great Stuff, thanks! As much as I loved the iconic 300SL the new SLS makes me salivate. Now if I could just find a spare $200 K, I would buy one tomorrow. I felt the same way about the SLS300 but it was even more out of reach for me than as an SLS would be now. What can I say? I am now and guess always will be a cheapskate. smile.gif

If you don't have an extra 200k lying around the house, you could always go with the SL:

Looks like having enough fuel to complete some of the races will be a bigger issue this year. Hope that doesnt mean we see less competition on track.

My last bike was a '98 Kawasaki ZX7r, I rode it for a while and then made the mistake of selling it right before I got out of the military.

I am, generally, not a fan of the sound of 6cyl. motors.
However, there are exceptions (like that GT3).smile.gif

This is funny.

Williams have now got two Felipes in their car with Brazilian Felipe Nasr signing up as their reserve and test team driver. He put in a lot of mileage on Saturday. Having a namesake in the team will make it a lot easier to swap drivers in and out if they put the name 'Felipe' next to a Brazilian flag on the side of the car. However should Valtteri Bottas fall ill and need to be replaced then it could be fun having two Felipes racing and could lead to the team radio message "Felipe, Felipe is faster than you.".

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!

This is NOT funny. And brings up a very good point.

The lack of reliability for the teams may spill out into marshalling problems in the early races or at least safety worries for marshals. In Bahrain, when a car stops, the teams' engineers are coming out to collect their own cars because of the potential safety issues with electricity. When the season starts, the systems are supposedly going to be all sorted. But if the teams cannot get their cars working reliably by Melbourne, can the electricity safety systems in place be trusted? Having had a marshal killed in Melbourne not too many years ago by a flying wheel, the race organisers will want to be assured that the cars are safe to be touched.

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!

Well, if you knew what you were talking about, you would know damn well that Massa is "Phil" just as Alonso is "Fred."

...and vocalize some engine noises when you repeat that, Jimmy boy. tongue.gif.

Oh boy, it's gonna be a night race. I just love it when the sun goes down and all the light is gone, and the drivers battle it out for position with nothing more then their headlights and grit to keep them going...oh, wait.
