7:55 Subaru WRX STI
I believe that is a Subaru prototype, not a production car.

No matter. The 2011 stock STi is still pretty wicked fast. It pulls like crazy when you bury the throttle. smile.gif

I'll admit it I always wanted a Subaru WRX, I fell in love with them one year at the LA auto show. Kimi does not hold back.I do think he's right as there no replacement for actually being at the track. The weather and temparature changes alone at a real track make it more realistic.They had to cut costs for the smaller teams somehow.

I am glad that DRS is now being limited to DRS zones at all times, even practice and qualifying. Its ridiculous to use it all over the place in qualifying then you cant do that in the race.

Now i hope for more sunny days so the cars look better in the sunshine than on dull days.

They will look better just without that stupid stepdown nose now that they can put a non-structural panel over the stepdown.

According to Kimi, the drivers agree with you.wink.gif

Remember this one? 1994 Scuderia! If you have a good speaker system turn it up nice and loud it's recorded in stereo wink.gif

That is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. Gave me goosebumps and got my heart thumping. Hell, that could be addictive. Love the flames shooting out the exhaust too.

I can't wait for the season to begin.

One of this year's New Year's Resolutions is I am going to Montreal or Austin or both this year no matter f*cking what.wink.gif

Great stuff guys, love those engine sounds!! I worry that the new engines are not gonna sound good.

They need to have on each car a recording of a V12 and a big speaker and have it blasting during the race!!

Glock had 55 starts and his best finish was 12th? I wondered for the last 2 years how he even had a job.

The step-nose look will be gone this year for everyone on the grid.
The noses will be probably look like last year's McLaren.

Its great to see him driving again but that's a long way from F1. I don't think he will ever be back. There is just too much talent out there.
