At least in a closed track it is better reason than saying "I got lost" :lol: Though that might have happened in WRC ''hmm''



Massa: Well, it was a long hard race. I was doing well being a second and a half off Fernando. We had good pace, y'know. I was setting the car up, getting the tyres into the optimum temperature, when I come out of turn 7 and I encounter traffic. The traffic for sure, made things hard. My tyres were for sure, destroyed after six or seven laps, and for sure I would have been further up the pack and would've gotten some good points for sure.

For sure I look forward to the next race, and try to be within a second of fernando, and for sure be right up there and hope that, for sure nobody will block, balk or make contact with me.

Fo sure.

“The committee decided that Bruno Senna is the driver who has developed the most in 2012,” said the vice president and event organizer, Francesco Assirelli.
How can they judge that so early on the season :confused:

I believe it would be for 2011. You can only receive the Bandini Trophy once so, as much as I like Bruno, perhaps they are running out of options. :p

What a bizarre decision. He only did 8 races. Plenty of other worthy guys on the grid. Could have even given it to Barrichello for services to F1 or any number of other young hot-shoes who have served their teams well.

Maybe Rubens is not an outstanding figure from the world of motor racing for them. Looking at the list of the winners, I can't quite figure out what is the common quality of them to be awarded by the trophy.

What a terrible video.
Starts off like some sort of gay dating video, 2 questions, some rock music while they drive a car round Monaco with camera angles were you can't really see anything and then it ends.

Anyone got anything they'd like to ask Seb Buemi?

Red Bull have made it quite clear they do not think he is good enough to race for Red Bull Racing, is it an awkward feeling to be working for them as third driver when they have this view and is he looking for drives elsewhere?
