The start of the race was awesome, first turn 7 cars wide....I think its gonna be dogfight wit Kimi, Alonso, an Schmucher, but I think Juan Montoya is gonna catch up.

Button passing Schumacher was awesome. w00t2.gif cat.gif

a car with grip passing a car w/o grip is awesome how? rolleyes.gif

Button used disappearing line technique and the fact Michael had no grip he maniplated to take a different line.

I didnt even know that it there was such thing as a "dissappering line"..... i thought that was just something from an anime.......

to me he just out braked him(aided by the fact that button was hanging around the blind spot of shumacers car)..... shumacher had to be a lot more careful with his braking (ie brake longer and softer) because he had no grip and didnt really need a lockup.... wait...... i remember a ferrari locking...... but was it shumacher.....? meh anyway, yea combine that with his much less agressive throttle work on the exit of a corner (lack of rear end grip... no point puting himself into a spin) results in him losing a place to button.

Creating an better an exit than button was useless (that was his inention after he saw button making a move)

Kimi vs Montoya..... 2002....... i think........ 9 corner battle....... at that same circut...... THAT was cool.....

don't even need to go back that far

just last year the battle between button and alonso for almost a third of the race was just as exciting.

on a side note: those of you with speed vision should REALLY try to catch the GP2 races. absolutely cracking races pretty much everytime those guys go out.

Not a pass to brag about, true, but it was a nice quick pass that I liked and the fact that it helped Button get third place is the awesome part for me happy.gif . At least BAR will finish in front of teams like Jordan and Minardi this year.

EDIT: Too bad it didn't make your day but it did make mine! chris.gif

All the people in the race got their spot partially thanks to Kimi, I suppose. lol

It sucks that Kimi's car is so unreliable ( engine explosions, transmission problems). Might it be that Kimi has a style a bit too aggressive for the powertrain? Find out on the next presentation of F1! Same day, same channel, same Kimi! fear2.gif

I think Kimi should stay unless some proposition from a sure shot team appears in his mailbox. grin2.gif

^^same...

BUT if you all haven't been keeping up with the new rule changes to take effect in 2008, here is some news...

The Formula One teams have come up with ideas for possible 2006 qualifying formats. We would like your feedback on two particular suggestions. Check out the key points of each below, then vote for your preferred option at the bottom of the page.

Proposal 1:
- 60-minute session, split into two 25-minute ‘halves’ with a 10-minute break.
- drivers may run as many laps as they wish, but must set a time in each half.
- each driver’s best times from the first half is added to his best time from the second half to produce a final time to determine the grid.
- no fuel restrictions - cars may refuel during and after the session.

Proposal 2:
- 60-minute session.
- after 15 minutes, the five slowest cars must retire from the session and will qualify 16th to 20th on the grid.
- after a further 15 minutes, the five cars slowest during that period (times cannot be carried over from the first 15 minutes) must also retire from the session. They will qualify 11th to 15th on the grid.
- for the final 30 minutes the remaining 10 cars will compete for first to tenth place on the grid, based on the best times set in that period (times cannot be carried over from the first 30 minutes).
- drivers may run as many laps as they wish in each period.
- no fuel restrictions - cars may refuel during and after the session.

Tyres*


Raikkonen takes 1st. Shuey 2nd. Schuey jnr 3rd. Good race...

Klien rolled in turn 1, lap 1 from Villeneuve putting his front left tyre infront of Kliens rear right. Coulthard then spun and spun and spun after hitting Alonso's front wing debris which got dislodged... Can't remember how... Alonso pits lap 2, falls into 17th, not a very good race from him, finished 11th. Montoya looked strong, made 3rd place on 1st lap behind Raik who was behind Schuey. He then retired from P1 towards end of race, looked strong to take podium. Clutch problems? Barrichello had a pretty boring race... It was really about Raik and Schuey the whole time, this is a good thing for Ferrari...

Ferrari came back in full force with Michael, it seems.

I'm a bit surprised about Toyotas taking 3rd and 4th. It's true that many tough opponents were out of the game basically. Still, Ralf was really close to his brother.

Mclaren should be a few points ahead of Renaults if they can just solve their reliability issues.

Both cars are lightning quick and in a league above the Renaults but when shit breaks and the cars can't finish, that doesn't do much good in terms of points sadly.

anymore blowups for kimi and kiss the drivers championship goodbye. I'm pretty sure that mclaren can make the constructors though, so they at least got something from this season.

6 rounds left and the gap is 26 points

so kimi has to outscore alonso on an average of 5 points to catch up

that's a tall order since you need Kimi to win every race from here on in and fernando needs to be outside the podium for that to happen.

It could, if they can keep both merc's running and pray to god that Ferrari picks up their pace to outrun the renaults

otherwise, it's wait till next year for kimi.

i'm more interested in seeing this silly season of musical chair than i am watching the races w00t2.gif
