    They saved the season for me, I kept following it because of them, otherwise I would have skipped most of 2014 tbh. (or maybe not, if they weren't so overpowering it could have become more interesting)
    But it was great fun to watch, like a soap opera :)

    Exactly, like some sort of almost scripted drama, but in the best possible way.
    I'm sure it'll continue this year, once the season is a bit underway. They're both very eager and determined to prove themselves against each other, no doubt. :cool:

    Good article.
    Go's to show that with any subject, the moment money and power comes into place, the subject itself is becoming less relevant. Happens with virtually everything.
    Its a typical sign of uncontrolled capitalism, as long as the money is poring in, why worry?

    It's not removed, it's still THERE ;)



    edit: this forum-script replaced the "f" word, in the original link from hexagramme, with ****, so it can't find it's target anymore. :D

    Alonso saying something was wrong with the car.
    McLaren denying that something was wrong with the car.
    Shady stuff indeed... :eek:

    well McLaren said there was nothing wrong with the car after examining it after the crash, if the steering link broke or something, they might have thought that was due to impact. THey also said they changed the steering rank for a more durable one altho they didnt manage to find the actual cause

    Well, how about that Verstappen? :)

    Don't get me wrong; I'm not just a blind fanboy who thinks he is the best there is.
    My pov; he has some great talent and he is in there to learn. He will be wc material in a few years if he continues like this; not now.

    But he does show some nice things in my opinion. P6 is pretty well done in this conditions and having few laps on wet experience.
    Didn't see him off the tarmac what wouldn't even be that unthinkable in this conditions and his experience, right?

    I think he is going somewhere...........lets see how the rest of the season goes :)

    I met him in real life; when driving the F3 Masters at Zandvoort last year, I was a scrutineer and had to weigh him, check his clothing and later, after the race helped FIA check his car; this guy is focussed......wow. You might think he is cranky.
    Got some nice pictures of him on the grid, daddy in front of the car, "fighting" to get to him due to all media attention :)
    The wife came with me and she got her wish; a photo with father Jos (on the grid with Max' car on the background) :)

    So, I have to be a fan, you understand ;)

    Going to do a rain dance now, hehe.

    I hope you aren't to good with your dance, the race should still be run :p If it gets as heavy as it was before Q3 then there will be a red flag for sure ;)

    If you had ever seen me dance; you wouldn't be that worried; few drops at best :)
    The race should go on; absolutely!

    I heard today that Max' engineers where shaking their heads in disbelieve in practise (this weekend or Melbourne I dunno) because he was doing the same laptimes on hards as others (prolly not everyone) on softs.
    I wasn't particularly impressed by him up to this point, gotta see what's what first, but that's pretty impressive.

    True; I get your drift.
    It all depends on how one defines "impressed" though. If Hamilton wins the race; I'm not. If he would do that in a Manor car; I would be.

    For a (young)rookie with little car experience, in the car he is in, setting some lap times that are decent and not wrecking the car, being hired at this age by a team; that could be considered "impressive".
    But again; no wild things have happened and I think they won't for a while; not in this car, not in the "learning period".
    Little things like the lap times you said and this qualifying; those things will be the best for now.

    But maybe......you never know.......he will grow out to be a big shot.
