Oh believe me thats not the worst picture. Sniff Petrol ran a campaign called "STOP THE COCK" (hehe) a few years ago and they had an awful pic of him.
There was even stop the cock t-shirts made and theres some epic pictures of people wearing them and getting a photo, with Steve Rider, Mark Blundell and Martin Brundle. Ill dig them out.

The pole position slot for the European Grand Prix has been switched to the right side of the track ahead of this weekend’s first race in Valencia.

The original first slot was situated on the left hand side of the track, which was supposed to have been more favourable for the racing line into the first right hand corner.

But after observing the behaviour of cars during practice on Friday and Saturday, FIA Formula One safety delegate Charlie Whiting has announced that the pole position slot will now be moved to the right

When I open the topic, I always have to read lots of unrelated stuff. Guys please, don't discuss topics other than Valencia GP. I don't have to read GP2 stuffs or any other damn races.

My recommendation is don't read it then. No-ones making you. Its just more accessible for everyone else.
If its on a Grand Prix weekend then I see no problem if its a spoiler you can put it in a font colour you have to highlight., football matches in a F1 thread is a different matter though.

sorry if its harsh but its my opinion.

How can I know whether a post to be readable or not if I don't read? I read than I understand it's off-topic and so. Then? According to you, I have to read all posts to understand whether I read or not!

You see no problem but anybody can see a problem. So you must consider this and give an off-topic indication at least while talking about your personal pleasures.

I'd hardly call GP2 or Formula BMW a "personal pleasure". I will give a off topic indication in future then. :thumbsup:
You will probably know if its on topic or not if you take a quick glimpse and see either "GP2, support race or FBMW". Thats what I do when I don't care about something. :O

I really hope Felipe can turn his pole into 10 points this time! Felipe winning it, Alonso in second and Vettel in 3rd would be my dream result. Both Mclaren out. :)

because glock blocking hiedfield did not affect things much because heidfield had time for another run but in france webber was in his last flying laps. so heikki got pennalised and glock did not.
