You have to get a dvd recorder prefably with a HD and plug a seperate video recorder into the dvd recorder and then record the output from the video.

yeah, i noticed that, but it was just a few seconds ago, as I read your post :p
And I think, the sponsors change every year somehow.
What I noticed was that the wind was blowing very heavy and the flags nearly flew away :pout:

How can that be right if Nick completed every race, whereas Lewis Hamilton lost roughly 50 laps of Canada and Nick only lost a few laps due to being lapped once twice or thrice in some GPs?

you're correct twisted.....i think this would sum it up;

Laps completed in 2008

Nick Heidfeld completed all but five laps this year. He finished four laps behind at Monaco and one down at Brazil.

1. Nick Heidfeld 1,112
2. Robert Kubica 1,084
3. Nico Rosberg 1,068
4. Lewis Hamilton 1,065
5. Felipe Massa 1,057
6. Kimi Raikkonen 1,042
7. Kazuki Nakajima 1,024
8. Heikki Kovalainen 1,011
9. Jarno Trulli 1,010
10. Fernando Alonso 1,000
11. Mark Webber 998
12. Rubens Barrichello 987
13. Timo Glock 950
14. Jenson Button 936
15. Sébastien Bourdais 887
16. David Coulthard 812
17. Sebastian Vettel 810
18. Giancarlo Fisichella 810
19. Nelson Piquet Jnr 776
20. Adrian Sutil 687
21. Takuma Sato 207
22. Anthony Davidson 119

Laps led in 2008

Massa led the most laps but what caught my eye here is that Kubica, Alonso and Vettel all led more than Kovalainen.

There were 15 different lap leaders in 2008. This ties the all-time record also set in 1954, 1956, 1957, 1960 and 1975.

1. Felipe Massa 363
2. Lewis Hamilton 294
3. Kimi Raikkonen 178
4. Robert Kubica 68
5. Fernando Alonso 62
6. Sebastian Vettel 49
7. Heikki Kovalainen 31
8. Nick Heidfeld 21
9. Nelson Piquet Jnr 13
10. Jarno Trulli 13
11. Nico Rosberg 11
12. Rubens Barrichello 7
13. Timo Glock 3
14. Sebastien Bourdais 3
15. David Coulthard 1

not bad... i think you compiled it yourself, didn't you?
you had 3, possibly 5 correct anyways.....it's hardwork being a statistician, like the fave driver/team topic you've made...maybe you've just been tired or something i guess :D
