That's an interesting thought. Alonso certainly made a big effort at Spa. I wonder if he felt some pressure from the team?

Man, I thought it was bad when the driver I hated most in F1 moved to Ferrari. It would be cruel and unusual punishment to make me cheer through Alonso and then Vettel as well.

I don't see Ferrari winning a title soon. They're not a well-run outfit. A change of homologation certainly opens the door for everyone, but I'm not convinced that Ferrari have the kind of bold thinking that won Brawn a title when they invented the double diffuser.

Everyone assume that the Mercedes engine will be the best next season. Is that because of their sports car racing?

I am not stoked about the new V6Turbo motors for next year, BE is an idiot, making these retarded changes to make F1 more interesting


Oh Yeah Vettle

Lotus rolling out a long wheelbase car for the final races of the season. Apparently they want to see just how accurate their computer modeling and racing simulator are.

I think the shot of the rear wing without the slots was from practice and shows a test wing possibly for Monza.
In race trim the cars used a wing that had the slots in the end-plates.

Maybe A.N. is just trying to get the other teams to start second guessing themselves.

By the way, someone posted an easy way to make oversize photos fit the page. Instead of using the forum's IMG tags, use this formula instead. Maximum width should be 800.

(Remove the space between the < and IMG)

< img src=urlofyourphoto width=800>

So for the above photo:

< img src=https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/1277620_634019296616244_477425882_o.jpg width=800>

And with the space removed:
