Sweet. I have a 1:18 of Heikki's MP4-23 but my favourite is the 1:43 model of the Silver Donkey. It looks awesome, even if it had the aerodynamic ability of a steamroller.

Button has said pace cost the 2012 championship not glitches.

Thats very true for Jenson. i mean, he was abysmal for so long. Lewis, he shouldve won out of everyone, over 100 points alone in race win losses.

It's a shame Lewis isn't staying. He'd be the only driver to race Cars #1, #2, #3, #4 and #5 in five successive seasons :lol:

I am underwhelmed by how this track looks so far.

Quote:
Williams driver Pastor Maldonado last Saturday married journalist Gabriele Tarkanyi in Canaima, Venezuela.

International media reports said the event was attended only by the couple's closest family and friends.

Maria Gabriela Chavez, the daughter of Hugo Chavez, was slated to attend, but she is reportedly at her father's side as the Venezuelan president recovers in Cuba from cancer surgery.

27-year-old Maldonado, sponsored by the Venezuelan state oil company PDVSA, won May's Spanish grand prix in Barcelona, but finished the 2012 season just fifteenth.

Let's hope he won't crash anything :lol:

Omnicourse claims that the STR8 will be closer in design to the Red Bull. They're getting rid of the double floor that caused problems with the radiator in 2012; this will also help in terms of accommodating the Coanda exhausts. They're going to be using a push-rod suspension.

STR is also switching to Renault engines in 2014.

So much for having two teams sharing 80% of the car eh Phil!

STR should be sold on, theres nothing wrong with supporting teams, but when you actually running and paying for two teams.....

I think it means that they're looking to make a car like the RB8, not sharing technology etc.

I agree that I don't like STR really, I'd rather have another stand alone team to bolster the midfield rather than a Red Bull training ground. But if it's STR or nothing, it's an obvious choice!

That Russian GP layout reminds me of some kart track that I raced on at an amusement park a few times...

I remember how impossible it was to overtake...

Looks like Chavez is slipping away. This is probably wrong (especially as I'm a politics student :p) but my first thought was 'Maldonado'...
