Moldo for taking over or Maldo being responsible? :p

President Maldonado. :lol:

I think they're both right here, the statistics do speak for themselves. But Webber won't be supporting Vettel, he'll be trying to beat him and finishing behind him...

Horner said before Christmas it will be a push to get the car ready this month.

Yeah, sorry. A combination of DVD regions, licensing and cost. It'd get too complex to ask for the distributor who's sending them to me to send them as prizes.

Hello! Doing a bit of purging before season 2013 starts, so I'm giving away a few bits & bobs from my F1 stuff. Have a look and see if you're interested in giving some of them a new home...

Some initial thoughts on the 2012 DVD, haven't watched it all.

Had a look at the Silverstone round. It's good....but there's no build up. It launches straight into 'Rain dominated the weekend and delayed qualifying but cleared for the race' - nothing from practice or qualifying. Straight into Petrov's engine failure. Struck me as odd... Also a shame there's no OB from Grosjean at Spa, had hoped for that. Onboard feature from Japan is pretty good - you can see how silly Grosjean's move was, Alonso's retirement was his own fault, Perez got swamped at T3, di Resta stalling and how Button/Massa gained hugely! Oh, and in Australia Ricciardo came so close to stacking it at T5 on Lap 1. Brazil onboard also shows how late Senna braked at T4 on Lap 1. I can't remember if every car has an onboard camera, but it's a bit of a shame they don't release more. After all, a review DVD is for the dedicated fan!

Watched the features

- Driver Profiles: Just info about each driver
- Winter Testing: A summary of winter testing, as if it was produced between the third test and Australia. Some good footage
- Lotus: Interviews with Bouiller, Raikkonen and Grosjean about Lotus and their aims
- Senna + Monaco: Bruno Senna talks about Ayrton and Monaco, it's quite nice.
- Team radio in F1: Simon Rennie, Dave Robson and Andrea Stella (who has an amazingly silky voice) discuss what they do and their relationships with Raikkonen, Button and Alonso. There's an interesting one when Button's screaming "He used DRS! He used DRS! In the yellow flag zone!" about Vettel in Spain, as well as Kimi's "I know what I'm doing so just be quiet" in Belgium.
- F1 in Slow Motion: Some slow motion shots; a really nice one of a Red Bull stop
- Goodbye Michael: Warning - starts with Eddie! But it then has Stefano + Brawn talking and then a montage of Michael's career.

All in all I'd say they're pretty good. I can't help but feel that the Winter testing bit should be at the start of the DVD (maybe it is, I haven't watched the main feature yet) and that they have a lot of footage that should be released from testing - when people want it! Overall, the 6 features (driver profiles don't really count) last about 45 minutes.

If this is the future of F1, I'll start watching golf. What a joke...

F1's about the noise. The speed is impressive, but what hits you is the noise. It's just amazing. I'm sure they won't go electric... at least not for another 10 years...

I prefer how the cars sounded back in the mid-90's compared to the screeching banshees of the current incarnation of F1.

The Ferrari from 1994 is often tipped as the best sounding ever. After listening to clips from youtube I have to say its a beautiful throaty sound.
