Mika has lost the plot since his sprog popped out.

He even has a special arangement as of this race to have said sprog looked after at the circuits.

Sorry folks, Mika is finished as a top driver, end of an era etc. etc.

I wish i could tell you more about what i know, but i cant.

Discuss.

Off to Rockingham in 6 hours, must get some good data for chip the pimp. Dont forget, cheer for me in the race in the twinny mini.

Question Don't grap on your tired too much or you'll go blind!!

What's a Sprog? Is that like a Finnish Doner Kabob? Maybe with extra chili sauce?

Unhappy I guess Michelins dont work in the cold

Mikey
Mika
DC
TRULLI !

My Williams boys back in 8th and 10th

Anyone think Mike will do a little push over move on Mika tomorrow?

Will Mika pull over for DC if the situation allows?

Will Rubens put anyone into the grass ? (he's in a slump on that topic)

Will the Chili Dog vendor sell out?

Stay tuned...

Well Mikka and the sprog won.....Chili Dog came in 4th. That is JPM's first finish other than second place twice. Nice job Montoya! I didn't see the race yet as I got piss drunk last night and slept till noon today. I will see it tomorrow and see just how flawless (as F-1 Live put it) Montoya's drive was.

Can you tell how much I care about the other drivers! Where did those freaky German brothers finish anyways? Not that I really care. Stupid Schumy has it wrapped up anyways. He can phone in the rest of the season and still win.

Default JPMs drive

I wouldn't exactly call JPM's drive flawless, but he was a victim of bad circumstances or team tactics, one or the other. He was on a 2 stopper, and the 2 Ferraris, and Ralfie were on one stoppers. He was second when he went in for his first pit stop, and he came out 5th, behind Barichello and Ralfie. He was obviously quicker than both of them at that time but he couldn't get in front of Ralfie and Brichello. This negated his advantage (new tyres) and he was just forced to follow the 2 in front of him. When ralf went in for his pit, JPM went quicker and was on Barichello's tail, but he then had to go in for his 2nd stop. The crew didn't do a good job and it took him 10 secs to stop for tyres and little fuel. Barichello's stop soon after was only 8 secs, and he was able to get in front of JPM.

see, told you............ LOL

I just finished watching the race coverage and press conference.
What a bunch of dull, boring and miserable sods. Even Chilli Dog was miserable when interviewed

That race wasn't a race the moment DC crashed out.
Ferrari had already decided before the race even started to settle for 2nd or 3rd. Jean Todt was interviewed on the start grid by Martin Brundle, ex-F1 driver and now ITV comentator. Jean said we dont have to try to win.

Shuey just let Mika and Chilli Dog pass without a thought of trying. The sooner Shuey wraps up the tittle the better, we might get to see some racing again then cos right now it's a farce.

As for Tarso Marques, all that Monkey had to do was qualify the damn car and then i would step in, talk about gutted. LOL

Default DC's latest words of genius

Retiring on the fourth lap of the British Grand Prix was a bitter pill for McLaren driver David Coulthard to swallow in front of his home crowd. It not only meant that his dream of winning at Silverstone three years running was destroyed, but it was also a blow for his championship aspirations. Championship leader Michael Schumacher finished in second place behind Coulthard's teammate Mika Hakkinen, earning himself an additional six points and extending his lead to 37 points over Coulthard.

Although the Scotsman is happy for Hakkinen, who scored his first victory in 15 races, he was also disappointed by his own retirement, which resulted because of a first lap incident where he connected with the Jordan of Jarno Trulli. Coulthard believes that judging by Hakkinen's blistering pace throughout the race, he too could have done well and perhaps even won.

In an interview on British television immediately after the race Coulthard said: “Obviously I am very disappointed in my own race, but you have to look to the positive here because McLaren were very competitive and its good to have Mika up there on the podium. It could have been a McLaren 1-2 and naturally I think the result would have gone the other way for the sake of the championship. So that in itself gives us confidence because I think in reality we were much more competitive here relative to Ferrari than at the Nurburgring we were pretty average.”

Unfortunately for Coulthard though he was not able to demonstrate his competitiveness, or show the world how McLaren would have gone about implementing their team order, after his suspension was broken during his shunt with Trulli. As with most racing incidents the two drivers always see things differently and Coulthard believes that the Jordan driver should have lifted as he was ahead as they came through the first corner.

“Well if you always lift off unfortunately you are always going to come out second best,” said Coulthard. “I think looking at the damage to my car Jarno's front wheel only was touching along my bodywork and I think we as drivers know the type of corner you have there and it opens out on the exit. So with having track position I was in front of him then there is absolutely no reason to expect that I should lift in that situation. The only way we could have come in contract was if I deliberately turned in on him, which I obviously consciencely didn't do, and or he turned into the side of me. At the end of the day it actually doesn't matter why it happened, the fact is we should both know that you can't win the race on the first corner. Obviously slightly different agendas from Jarno and myself.”

When asked if he would have yielded if Trulli had been going for the championship Coulthard said: “I don't think this has anything to do with the championship, I think it's just common sense. Two cars don't go round a corner with a bit of give and take and I made it quite clear when we entered the corner that I wasn't going to lift, and he should know that and there should be time to react. There was enough of the curb on the inside that is flat that he could have turned in if he felt that I was squeezing him. So I think that irrespective of what it looks like from the outside, if you are a racing driver and you sit in the car, you know the corner, you know the circumstance, you know that it is possible to get two cars through there, but it will involve both giving a bit of room and unfortunately we weren't both able to see eye to eye on this situation but I'd just remind you again I did have track position, I was half a car length in front.”

DC screwed Jarnos RACE.. ARG! I know it was a racing accident, and they happen. But it seemed to me that DC did not give any room to the car beside him. Jarno was at least half way beside him when he got pinched my DC.

Maybe I am baised, or maybe I see things differently... but hitting Jarno, was dumb!

Default yeah I saw that

The article I read said that though he was unhurt he took the rest of the day off. He apparently hit the guardrail pretty hard and it caused some significant damage...

Was the track wet?? I read something about "wet condition", but the article wasn't really clear...

Michael Schumacher has escaped unhurt from a 200mph accident at Monza this morning.

The world champion lost control of his Ferrari at the second Roggia chicane, hitting the barriers and rolling.

Brother Ralf immediately sprung to his assistance, stopping his Williams to check that Michael was okay.

Giancarlo Fisichella, driving right behind the world champion at the time of the crash, described the impact as "violent".

The chicane is the same spot where a marshal was killed at Monza last year. Cars approach the corner in sixth gear, at 205mph, before hitting the braking zone and entering at 70mph.

Schumacher spent 40mins in the medical centre where he looked pale and shaken-up.

Upon "rediscovering his smile", he left to watch CCTV film of the crash.

Ferrari immediately suspended the test while Schumacher has since left for Switzerland with his wife.

Schumacher spokesperson Sabine Kehm said: "Michael lost a rear wheel under braking and the car more or less went straight off the track.

"He had a precautionary check-up and there are no injuries, but obviously the car is damaged and he will not test again today and will go home. He says he's fine and he's looking very calm. It was quite a big accident.

"Mechanical failure has been ruled out so far, but it's too early to say what happened or how fast he was going when he left the track."

NO S#!T!!! I think I'd be a bit pale after that myself.

Hope he's okay and gets some rest...

Is there video of the crash posted anywhere??

Default me too.

Yeah I know what you mean. Even though he may not be INJURED, I would imagine he will have some soreness and pain. Impacts at even low speed can distend and bruise muscles. I know he's in tip-top shape, but that has to make anyone sore.

Schumacher was saved by some quick thinking, after losing control and leaving the track he quickly grapped on his tired, almost surely saving his life....
