If I was a millionaire I wouldn't be comfortable dropping $975k on something that's being sold on ebay.

but you'd be comfortable dropping $975k on a 20+ year old mother fucking formula 1 car with no access to spare parts or maintenance if it was a more reputable auction house?

i'd take it for a day on the track, then put it in a glass case and never look at it again ahh fuck who am i kidding? I'd drive the thing until i fucked it or it fucked itself.

those V12 Ferrari engines were reliable as fuck so it'd probably be me putting it into a wall that fucked it

Nice, good idea from Pirelli. Softs and Hards in Spain, so an effective and noticeable gap between Primes and Options

Quote:

Pirelli believes its decision to have a double gap in tyre compounds at the Spanish Grand Prix should help throw up some pretty varied strategies - and perhaps deliver Formula 1's fifth winner of the season.

For the first time this season, Pirelli is not bringing tyres that are next to each other in the compound range. Instead, it has chosen the soft and the hard tyre for the tricky demands of the Circuit de Catalunya.

Pirelli's motorsport director Paul Hembery believes that path will ensure that teams are kept on their toes in working out how best to execute the grand prix - which should in turn help produce a good race.

"We've nominated the soft and hard tyre in order to highlight performance differences that will create a different challenge for the teams, showcasing both the speed and durability of our products," he said.

"There is a whole step in between our two nominations for the first time this year and this should allow the teams to come up with a number of different tyre strategies that could make a big difference to the final outcome.

"With many teams having expanded their knowledge of our tyre range and tested new components at Mugello, we're expecting a closely-fought Spanish Grand Prix - and maybe even the fifth different winner in five races."

i think the v10s came in a little bit later, along with schumi. and yeah, they used to blow up all the fucking time which was really enjoyable to see as a schumi hater

edit - yeah wiki says v10s in 96

Sick **** to get first pole for the year, Button second, Schumacher third.

Sick **** has a poor start, falls back to finish in fourth, Alonso qualifies in 10th, overtakes everyone at the start, falls back to finish 10th. Koboyashi does a PB in divebombs in one race (20), Hamilton has left rear tyre dramas in the pits, again.

guess you weren't around for David Brabham's scintillating year with Simtek.

edit. and Gary Brabham's short stint with Life must have passed me by. Have a read, it's quite amusing.

Check this out. The guy whose F1 artwork was picked up for the RBR site has put together a sperg-fucking-tastic infographic showing the lineage of F1 constructors back to 1950.

that's so fucking cool. interesting to see the patterns with constructors titles, and how grouped they are. the likelyhood of winning more than 2 consecutive wcc titles is incredibly slim!

Red is Ferrari, McLaren is the orange one a few layers in. Williams is probably a good guess for the green one.

The 'usual' stream is up (in 16:9) vipbox.tv/watch/32669/1/skysportsf1-launch-live-stream-online.html

It was taken down when I looked the other week, but it's basically just a portal to streams from various sources, so when one goes down they feed another one in.

[edit] Yeah uh, bit late Gruso. But GP2 practice is about to start.

Yah, seems to be a permalink as opposed to one of the temporary event links. I've been using it all year. But I've never actually found it on the site either - got it from reddit.

it seems slightly shitter quality than the one i was watching, but that could simply be because the other one was 16:9 boxed into 4:3.

this could be a good time to bring up the fact that i watched the opening round of renault 3.5 last week and jules bianchi looked fuckin' schmick.
