I have the pictures of him signing my brother's shirt on my dslr. These are just crappy iphone pics.
In 09 at Spa he didn't say much either, I think he's just a quiet person.

He can't do anything else bad for a period of time or he gets sent to jail. I guess I'm happy I'm not German...while being in a Chinese jail would not be nice, it seems very strange that it could be judged upon in Germany.

The McLaren debuts tomorrow. Anyone else reasonably excited for the car they say will likely be protested?

McLaren ready for legal fight

McLaren are reportedly braced for a fight over the legality of the new MP4-27 when their 2012 car is unveiled on Wednesday.

The Woking squad have targeted a fast start with their latest challenger in a bid to take on World Champions Red Bull from the first race in 2012 having been forced to play catch-up in recent seasons.

Speaking a day ahead of the launch of the MP4-27 on the team's official website, McLaren's Geoff McGrath, the managing director of the outfit's Applied Technologies arm, said the innovative element of the new design would be clear to see from the outset - and is expected to prompt protests from rivals.

"There are technical innovations on the car which will be immediately obvious when you see them," McGrath told Autosport.

He added that the team are "getting ready for a fight" over the MP4-27, with Autosport suggesting that McLaren's new car is designed to improve their qualifying performance in 2012 so that they can control races from the front.

McLaren had initially taken an innovative approach with the exhaust system on last year's MP4-26 but were forced to revert to a more conventional layout from the first race after their pre-season testing programme was beset by unreliability.

Team principal Martin Whitmarsh stressed, however, towards the end of last year that their design team had been encouraged to take a more aggressive approach for 2012, and McGrath says that McLaren are determined to take the fight to RBR from the off.

"We've started way behind in the last couple of years - that's the really disappointing thing," he added.

"But when we're behind, you can see that historically we always catch up faster than anyone else."

McLaren will unveil the eagerly-anticipated MP4-27 from 11am - with the launch covered live on Sky Sports.com/F1.

Now I am really excited. I bet they have a super innovative brake fins system (blown by exhaust, of course) which will give more rear traction for Mr. Happypants Hamilton

Sarcasm meter broken.

Autosport posted this story earlier today...then retracted it. I'm not sure why they would do that unless they heard something that made them think twice about posting it.

I hope it pays off for them this year, its getting tiring hearing them talk about what they're going to do to beat the competition, and nothing ever comes from it.

Funny, I saw the story earlier on my twitter feed (don't hate), but now it's gone. Oh well.

Let's see what all of the fuss will be about... if at all...

I doubt McLaren will change their livery...that would be sweet if they did though. Don't think we'll see any big livery changes this year?

Out of curiosity, how many wins in a year is considered more than "nothing"?
