:rofl:

Finns have been going hard on Rubens. We got three different interviews where he was crying over Schumi not apologising properly, Schumi possibly not getting to heaven, Schumi having a lot to grow as a person etc. etc.

They call him Ms Barrichello who soon will demand flowers from Schumi and after that he wants him on his knees apologising. *sob*

Rubens went a bit too far with his whining IMO.

This is soon turning into a drama - apology on the website isn't enough, now SMS is not satisfying enough...

But the best was when they asked Vettel about Mark's birthday in the press conference and Vettel said that he might give Mark some free shampoo from the hotel :rofl:

Mercedes-engine might cost Vettel for Red Bull

Some time ago they told that Mercedes wants to concentrate on building F1-engines only for their own team in F1.

On the eve of Belgian GP a rumour is circulating on the paddock that Red Bull might change from Renault to Mercedes when it comes to engines.

It looks like Mercedes would be thinking of a trade where they would get Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull would get the engine-deal.

Yet Ross Brawn denied on Friday that he even had heard the rumour.

Spa-Francorchamps/TS


seems to me like a good deal :p


But who's place would Vettel take? I don't think Red Bull would go along with it and hey... isn't it illegal to sell people nowadays :p

I hope they dont ask Kimi. He should stay at WRC!

The controversy this morning is that Red Bull changed the cameras that look back at their floor (the one on the front wing looking back)...

Why is Force India revealing all their strategy on twitter? :huh: :huh:

Tonio will be making three runs, using both hard and soft tyres. After his install he's reported the track is 'still very green.' Temps low
Adrian will be running a similar programme of runs, with a quali sim at the end of the session. 'Everything OK' he says after his one lap

Because every team does the same pretty much.

The FIA have told the drivers that anyone gaining an advantage at La Source (a la Kimi, 2009) will be penalised

Hamilton & Alonso said in the drivers briefing that they want some of the tarmac runoffs removed and replaced by gravel :thumbsup:

But Red Bull passed the inspection so why are they still going on about it? Like Horner said that other teams have complained over everything about the car so all they have left to complain about will be the drivers :p

But if they're confident they have nothing to hide, what are they trying to hide?

Gaining an advantage? He said himself that if he would have gained any advantage he would have taken the same road every lap but since it added about 1,5 km it made no sense. Barrichello was standing and Kimi was only trying to avoid a collision: http://www.myvideo.de/watch/6867693/Spa_2009_GP_Start

Didn't Alonso push out Hamilton in the same place during start in 2008?

Haha yeah but Kimi's intentions were always to do what he did. I don't take a great drive away from him but he was not within the track limits :O

Vettel just took Eau Rouge one handed!

I just watched the video and Kimi was carrying too much speed into La Source to make the corner.
