Weird, I just looked up whiny b!tch in the dictionary, and there was this little picture of Tony Stewart.

No, but seriously, lay off NASCAR - they've got issues, and a proper gentleman doesn't bully his cab driver, they're just doing their job.

To be fair, we've done our share of F1 bashing in this thread(as have you). We make fun of Bernie, we pretty much all trashed the team order situ, made fun of crasher type pilots, etc.

If you want to see NASCAR hate, try a NASCAR forum and you'll see some real bitching. http://racing-forums.com/forums/nascar-chat.8/

Ah, Le Mans is just around the corner.smile.gif

By any way you measure it, Audi has been THE powerhouse of endurance racing this century.

Good thing we are only 13 years into this century or I might think you were exaggerating. wink.gif

Agreed, in this thread and that's fair game since this is the F1 thread, but as I said I don't go into the NASCAR threads and trash F1. I am a fan of all racing series, NASCAR included, and just want to keep the bashing of it or any other series out of this thread.

All series have good and bad things about them, can we at least agree on that?

Who is the only driver ever to win the "Triple Crown of Motorsport"? 24 Hours of LeMans, Indianapolis 500 and the Monaco Grand Prix.

Well, after a minute on Wiki, it appears that Mr. Clark did not win Le Mans.

One more guess, again, no Googling 1st.

Juan Pablo Montoya?

Montoya has won Indy 500, Monaco, and 24 Hours of Daytona...not Le Mans.

I don't recall him ever competing at Le Mans.

Im surprised no one has said Mario Andretti. That would probably have been my first guess. But thats not it.

I would have also voted AJ Foyt, but he did not win Monaco, I don't think.

A friend of mine who is somewhat of an amateur racing historian has passed me the correct answer, but I will let others try their hand at it.

Very cool of you. I am just trying to add some fun and fill in some time between races. And its always good to learn new things.
Im pretty sure Foyt didnt drive in F1.
I think you will agree that it is a name that everyone at this thread will recognize though.

Assuming what my friend has told me is accurate, most definitely! :-)

Wiki does show that Foyt drove in F1 for three seasons; 1958 through 1960. He scored no points, and was listed as "unclassified" in the WDC standings. Not sure exactly what that means.

This was all before my time but it was very cool that top drivers would compete simultaneously across many different series.

See. Thats all part of the fun. I had no idea so I have learned something also. I will look around and get more detail. I have seen him several times at IndyCar races and really like him. Im glad to see his team doing so well this year.

I enjoyed the Long Beach race it was clear the team was focused on winning. Takuma Sato, (remember some of his insane passes and battles in F-1?) drove a flawless race. I still have great memories of the last Formula 1 race at Long Beach. biggrin.gif

Let's hope this doesn't get passed: http://www.gptoday.com/full_story/view/449568/FIA_to_reduce_a_cars_turbo_as_a_penalty_in_14/

On tracks that are difficult to pass, you would have a penalized car slowing down the train of cars behind him. How is that fair to the other drivers? It would be like a safety car eliminating gaps that drivers had worked for to put distance between them and the car(s) behind.

You're right...this would be a very stupid way to hand out penalties.

On the face of it, this sounds like a seriously bad idea.

I think we had a winner in your triple crown contest. Will you be handing out the award? :-)
