Meaning that everything is already made and that he has had a clear vision all along. I hate speculations but what can you do when you hang in the air :<>:

But if he stays in rally then he will be driving in the top 5 next year since he learns from mistakes and is really fast.

Like Marcus Grönholm said:

"It's the best thing that you can do with your pants on"

He also says that it's orgastic when the driver feels that he is one with the car and the co-driver is one with the pace notes and the result of this holy trinity is that driving is like dancing.

Top sport uses the word Zone for it, also the word Flow.

Marcus continues:

- When you reach this Zone-state it's like you would be dancing with your car. Saying it with one word. You are in a different world where everything happens perfectly from corner to corner, bang, bang, bang, corner after corner.

- These moments separate you from everything. The co-driver reads the notes and I'm on fire. I drive with a good rhythm. When you are occupied with this feeling you don't think about points or anything else for that matter and this is the greatest experience you can experience in a rally car.

Zone - what an appropriate word :lol:


Well, what Bosse talked about was exactly what Kimi did with the 2005 Mac. Flow or Zone, or whatever you call it, it's a great thing and it's behind the most top sport results. I hope it's not the last time we saw Kimi to experience it in a race car :pray:

The monster-thread has been the glue, the foundation, the 'home-thread', hasn't it?

There are so many threads that I get lost (I'm a simple-minded girl :blush:) and don't know where to write anymore - so many threads.

Iceman already moved the Turrini-thread to the F1 General discussion, the Heikki Kulta -thread is also there since he concentrates on F1 just like Turrini does. So please go and take a look there and during Spa it could be fun to follow the race there...

My suggestion is to keep separate rally-threads but could the pictures be put in the same thread, what do you think?

Also Luie's brilliant Iceman Comet -threads, if they would be merged we could easily read rally by rally Luie's heart-melting congratulation as well as how we congratulated him. It would be one big continuous Iceman Comet -thread :cool:

One thing I miss in the monster-thread are the pictures. I don't mean that they should all be put here but one picture every now and then would be super-great!

And all the Kimi-chatting, for example how do Brasilians take Kimi now, what about the Spanish people etc. We are from all around the world here with priceless information to share about the public opinion as well as our own opinion.

I'm only asking since for crying out loud.... I don't even know how Apple is doing when I don't know in which thread she has written :lol:

And remember all - Wolfie is the MOD :<>:

Joking :lol:



Just my small opinion - I kind of like that we have a thread for pictures from the rally and then a thread for the rally itself, where all the times and information like that is kept together. I think it's better to keep it separate and it's easier to catch up with the information if you have to miss the day.

But then that's just me :) It's a great forum here, I love it :cool:

Thanks Ish, every opinion is worth of gold :hug:

Now that you said how the pictures and the rally should be separated I see your point and agree with you :)

@ beefree, thanks for the link :shhh:

I have another question: Anybody interested in writing an article to the next F1Zone-magazine?

It would be much appreciated and the deadline is before Monza GP.

BREAKING NEWS!!!

Iceman accidentally merged the monster-thread with the coffee shop -thread and he has very little freetime so they will be or not be unmerged in the future but not today - maybe they could stay merged, what do you think?

Can't they stay merged? Everything happens for a reason, you should know that (Lost) :lol:

It would also make this the chatty monster-thread it used to be - maybe?

I would love it :p

I don't know since he doesn't drink alcohol either :huh:

@ Kinga, take all advantages of being short.... In the store when can't get something that is too high I look for the most grumpy-looking guy and go to him asking 'could you please help me'. Works everytime, they are like sunshine after their heroic deed :lol:

Turrini changed his opinion though, he didn't like Todt because his heart was too close to the ground but he changed his opinion later :lol:

@ Sleenster, good thinking :shhh:
