The French Grand Prix will be using the Digital Flags for the 1st time in Formula One. This move comes for the 1st time after the French circuit Paul Ricard (HTTT) uses them instead of marshals. This also will be a great test before the Singapore Grand Prix which also being using this system due to Night.

I dont think the electronic flags will effect anyone at all. Just another thing them lazy stewrads dont have to do lol. And yey it will be good for them to use em before Singapore (cant wait for that race) so the drivers wont have no excuses if they screw up somethin over the flags.

 

And Eeshan no offense but perhaps use the EDIT button next time.

I think the 10 place penalty for Hamilton this weekend will be the end of the title challenge for him.

Was a stupid mistake which will count alot at the end of the season. Massive hill to climb now.

I hope that it does take him out of contention. We'll see how he goes. Not long now.

Hey anythin is possible but perhaps not that.

 

Yey the race was kinda borin not all that much happened except for the whole Hamilton thing and Kimi almost retiring. Apart from that i thought it was pretty straight forward. As for it takin Hamliton out of the title race Waddy your jumping the gun a bit there arent you, i mean yey two races without points is bad, but Massa had the same thing at the begging of this season and look at him now leading the championship.

Who would do that? Not someone being facetious - would they?

wow.gif

 

Well that wasn't a great result for Lewis.

 

Damn stewards. Loving the double standards of punishment at the moment. Mind you, I am biased!

 

At least Kimi didn't win.

Well it was true what James Allen said (i think it was him,one of the commentator's anyway) 'If your a Mclaren your gonna get penalised'

Pretty average race.

Good for the Ferraris, 1 and 2.

Sucks for Hamilton, again.

Great for Massa, first Brazilian to lead championship since 1998.

Good enough for Raikkonen, starting to get his form back.

True i hate the Ferraris and Massa more than Kimi, but Massa wont win the championship, cos lets face it Kimi was gonna win easily, he just hammered Massa until his exhaust pipe broke away and started to melt the bodywork etc. Massa is just a lucky driver at the moment, but it wont last forever ill be surprised if he finish in the top 3 this year.

I dunno, he has proven he's more reliable this year. He did have his spell of bad luck at the start of the season but he's been a lot closer to Kimi in general. Certainly not making anywhere near the same amount of mistakes as before.

 

After all, he's now got 3 wins under his belt. He can win a fair few races..who's to say he can't win the championship?

Nurburgring was the 'European' GP, iirc. But by the looks that's at Valencia in 2009 (that was a mistake, it's 09, right?)

 

The German GP is held at Hockenheimring.

 

Abu Dhabi is in the UAE, near Dubai. I think that's the night GP?

Singapore is the night race.

Kicking off the race at 8pm. Its lit really well though so doubt there will be loads of difference.

F1 Nurburgring isn't the manly one anyway...mind you, F1 cars on the full track these days? H&S would have a field day. Just like when they used to race at Brands Hatch...man turn 1 would be epic now, but man facilities are awful compared with F1 standards.

 

Would be nice to see it overhauled and used as the Euro GP track. That or London...not that London is ever gonna be a decent option.

 

You know what I'd like to see? A fully indoor circuit. Imagine the sound!

I wouldnt like that cos if you think about it it take away the weather situation. Sometimes it great to see teams doing different stuff to each other when its raining etc. Yey the sound would be awesome, but who knows maybe one day it will happen.

Yeah, of course, you have to use manual.

There is a sh*t load of gear changes, it is so fun.

Yeah, it has been shortened heaps. The full circuit would just take too long to get around.

 

Take a gander at this:

Nurburgring

 

The small boldened bit is the F1 track, the rest is the full circuit.

The small bit is around 5km taking 1min 29 to get around with 16 turns.

The large area is 22km with 73 turns. That would take about 6mins to get around one lap.

 

EDIT: I read further on and it says that the first lap was in 9mins and in that race the quickest lap was 8min 55, in 1961.

Now, 47 years later, the lap record has never broken 8mins wow.gif

 

I would love to test drive a car on that track inlove.gif

I believe Australia will soon join Singapore with having an evening race.

 

Atm, with the timezones being the way they are, the Australian GP doesn't get as much live exposure by holding it in the day compared to night. They were threatening to take it away from us but we gave in and will now be having it under lights.

 

Not exactly sure when it's going to start from though. And I'm too lazy to look for it. Any takers?

Am I the only one who sees the outline of the F1 circuit of Nurbergring as a child with a skipping rope?

 

Just putting that out there.
