Because he's a pretty boy and he has long flowing blonde hair.

It's not just Webber that calls him that, it's the entire paddock.

And it goes back quite a few years...

Quote:

Mark Webber and Nico Rosberg, Brazil 2006

Although the accident was relatively straight-forward, Nico Rosberg misjudged his braking into a crowded turn four and tagged Williams team-mate Mark Webber, the race back to the pits that ensued was, in a word, crazy. Webber had a cracked diffuser and lacked rear-end stability while Rosberg had a damaged front wing, inducing copious amounts of understeer. The team realised this and, because a front wing is easily replaced and a diffuser isn't, Webber was told to cede position. But having been rear-ended by his younger team-mate, Webber was not willing to play game. Instead he forced the little upstart off the racing line, onto the dirty part of the track and, with Rosberg's front wing providing next to no downforce, into a massive accident. As he did so the team came over the radio, reiterating the orders for Rosberg to pit first. Webber replied: "Don't think so mate. Britney's in the wall."

so, bahrain. i think the outcome of this race will be most affected by mercedes ability to control tyre wear in the high temperatures. im hoping they do, because it would be good to see nico fighting for more wins.

i think we'll see mercedes and hamilton fighting for the front row, with button, the saubers and lotus not far behind. red bull and williams will be fighting for the final positions in q3.

would love to see sauber get their strategy right and have kamui fight for a podium!

fingers crossed toro rosso have their setup fixed for bahrain. their lack of quali pace in china was surprising and disappointing, but the setup they ran with JEV in the race looked much quicker. JEV had one of the fastest laps and the str cars are usually pretty good on fast circuits like bahrain.

Sauber may just be a roughie for a win here, at least a podium imo. Given how Malaysia turned out for them and the cars resilience with tyre wear in high temperatures, surely they are a chance.

What a season. We still don't have a clear idea of who has the performance advantage and 4-5 teams are potential contenders. Ferrari may surprise towards the end of the year as well.

I still think Button is the favourite. Consistency will win it and he's the one who fits that bill. Webber can too but his car isn't as good as last year.

if i was a betting man i'd be putting it on hamilton. so far he's been consistent, he's leading the championship for the first time in a while, seems to have matured a bit and he's got his dad back with him at the races. but most importantly, he has what's so far looked the best car. historically, mclaren have a very solid development over the season, so they should stay one of the top teams and lewis can win a championship without the best car.

button, whilst certainly a contender, is too far behind hamilton in qualifying and i think that if hamilton builds some good momentum, there'll be no slowing him down.

vettel is out of the championship, his momentum is broken and he won't bounce back (particularly because marko confirmed today they're developing 'the webber car' which vettel doesn't like), alonso... we'll have to wait until ferrari launch their b-spec car. he almost won in 2010 when he was 50 odd points behind after silverstone so you can never rule him out. webber, again a contender but red bull need to find some pace quickly. rosberg, yep, if merc have sorted their tyre wear and continue to develop well.

shit, that sounds like quite the championship battle, bring it on

A spokesperson said, “As of this Sunday, April 22, Formula One will be broadcast on TEN at 9.30pm. This allows all Australians to access the Formula One coverage in a consistent time slot every Sunday night.”

consistent time slot? have they forgotten that the race start times change quite frequently? how many regular ten viewers do they think will watch a 3am sporting event in the middle of winter?

gotta be fucking kidding themselves.

i think i might go old school on them and write a letter. i mean, i always threaten to write companies letters of complaint, but never actually follow through. im going to dust of ye olde penne, write this shit out, and post it in one of those big red things at the local shops.

it isnt about anger, its about disappointment. years of channel nine broadcasting it whenever they wanted, followed by years of ten broadcasting it at a scheduled 10pm but always running 45 minutes late thanks to big brother, followed by a few years of sensational, live coverage. i can forgive greg rust smiling for no good reason while he is talking about nothing funny, i can forgive them taking an ad break every nine laps even when someone is about to make a sensational passing move, and i can forgive them sometimes calling drivers by the wrong names, but giving us delayed coverage while the rest of the country sees it live is unforgivable.

it is almost more annoying that they are trying to put such a positive spin on it. fuck you. “As of this Sunday, April 22, Formula One will be broadcast on TEN at 9.30pm. This allows all Australians to access the Formula One coverage in a consistent time slot every Sunday night.” fuck you. fuck you twice. i have spent the last few years cultivating this fanbase among my friends who all come over for races on sunday evenings for the 8pm starts. will they still come over? no, fuck you.

this is rubbish, i am angry. and disappointed. angerpointed.

Dear Mr Gruso,

I was very thankful to you last year when you posted a link to the BBC streamer. It provided hours of beautiful, ad free F1.

Would you happen to know of something similar for SKY? I have been able to find a few feeds on justinTV and the like but hastily searching around for a feed in the minutes leading up to a GP is not enjoyable in the slightest.

I would be eternally grateful.

Yours sensually,

Watsakerring

Dear fellow F1 fans,

This handy information gets posted about every second page. Please take the time now to update your bookmarks. The go-to free option is the one Fledz just posted. Last weekend I trialled a paid option at (3quid for a day, 40quid for a year). The picture quality is a bit higher than most free streams, and the framerate and stream stability were the best I've seen. You can also jump between BBC and Sky, and tons of other (gay non-F1) channels. Based on my one day trial, it seems well worth it.

Also bookmark http://www.reddit.com/r/formula1/ and check it whenever events are running, as temporary streams get posted every round. Also bookmark this thread which has been well maintained so far: http://www.reddit.com/r/formula1/com...and_downloads/

And bookmark this post, so you can link it for the next people who ask. Yeah we're not supposed to be blatant about this stuff, but channel Ten can eat a swollen dick.

Bless!

i actually defended one/ten when this news first started filtering through, as i thought it was just a single race thing, and it was still all going to be live. i now feel fucking stupid for doing that.

danmaus hit the nail on the head. as a west australian f1 fan, it had been shit for so many years that i could live with the imperfections of ten's broadcast, because it was live and in HD. after years of darrell fucking eastlake and 3+ hour delays, then ten's big brother bullshit delays, it was bliss. and now this. for what? instead of seeing it live, there's some fucking crap tv show, some movie no one cares about. it's 2012, do they really think a true fan is just going to say "oh ok, i'll wait, avoid all internet/news for a few hours"? fuck off. i'm not even going to bother watching qualy on one. fuck them.

it also annoys me that in 2012, i can't pay for a legit, high-quality, ad-free stream. i've had league pass for the NBA for 4 years now, it's fucking brilliant - why can't f1 get something like that organised? league pass has totally spoiled me on other sports - the NBA is so far ahead of everyone else in providing for people it's not funny.

definitely giving the paid stream thing a run this weekend.

fuck you one/ten.

Fucking shithouse Ten. I love how they say in the article they are switching the coverage from ONE so more people are able to watch it. As of next year everyone will have no choice to switch to digital, so it makes no difference YOU FUCKING IDIOTS.

Pretty much everything that used to be great about ONE apart from NFL is gone. What a bizarre turnaround, so many people have at least 720p equipped HDTV's now yet there is far less true HD content to watch compared to when the first HD channels started to air?

nationwide. the races (euro 10pm starters at least) will now be telecast nationwide at 9.30pm on ten. so east coast is live. south australia and west coast get delayed by 1 and 2 hours respectively.

and it's fucking standard definition.

ten can suck a fuck.

also, i'm going carting this sunday yeaaaaaaah.

More info on Force India incident:

Quote:

Force India team members were forced to flee as petrol bombs were hurled over their vehicle on their way back from the Bahrain Grand Prix track.

The four mechanics in a 4x4 were caught in the middle of an incident as police clashed with protesters.

Some tear gas fired by police entered the car, before the driver escaped through a gap in the flames on the road.

No Force India staff were hurt but two team members have asked to return home.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/17767985

Apparently they were not in the normal place they should have been. They were taking an alternate route after the main road was closed, or something. Either way, jesus.

Just had a reasonably good search and I couldn't find any info on this, everything is saying that they are stopping the live telecasts for the west but there is no mention of their live web streams, I'm sure they are stopping it but it's strange there is no mention of it.
