Formula 1 Chat (2012 season)

Thought I would start a Formula 1 thread. What a season we are having. A very eventful Valencia 2012 race. As we know this track is not none for exciting races but this one was a cracker. Great drives from Alonso, Raikkonen and Schumacher. Hamilton is still carrying the McLaren team. I do not want to talk about Maldonado ;). Any thoughts?

Certainly the best race Valencia has ever given us, or is ever likely to.... Well done Fernando, shame about Hamilton and Grosjean but those are the breaks, boys.

Grosjean was looking good. Hamilton must also be very disappointed. He was never going to give up his place easily.

I live in Belgium, I read that the track (Spa Francorchamps) has got a contract for the next 3 seasons :D

I can't wait!

Does anyone know if there will be races at the Nurburgring (I hope I spelled it properly) in coming years, since they're bankrupt?

Bring on Spa! I can't wait for this one. Looks like the rain is going to stay away, but the grid is set up for an interesting race. Ham is just behind Maldonado Mmmm - first corner shenanigans for sure

Sometimes I hate being right ;). IMO Grosjean is in big trouble. Ham had very little time to react but he might also be in trouble. No points for Alonso.

Grosjean's fault.


Yap... obiously. I think the FIA is right to ban him for Monza. He is talented but on the other hand shows extremely dangerous driving.

I totally agree. He's a reckless driver in my opinion.

A one race ban is a fair enough I suppose, but it does not compensate the other drivers involved. It is also very harsh on the team. Thankfully all the drivers are OK. On a separate note – Hamilton is really making it hard to like him. He is a super talented driver but needs to learn respect, and fast. Button’s race was mature and very well deserved. Vettel drove a very good race.

Me too :-) All they need to do is re-employ Hamilton and Alonso and it'll be Prost/Senna all over again...

I just read that the new engines are going to be 1.6 liters. Am I missing something or is that not enough engine block for a race car to work with?

Awesome! A but late, but Alonso wins in Spain. 1.6 liter is tiny...but I've seen smaller. I will post on my Flickr photography account soon.

The old Turbos from the 80s - the most powerful engines ever in an F1 car - were 1.5 litres, making 1,400 bhp

Does this mean the new engines will make more than 1400 bhp???? Or are they moving backwards for "environmental purposes"?

Prob a fair bit less for reliability more than environmental purposes.

Monaco GP this weekend!! I'm gonna miss it but thankfully the BBC iPlayer will have it!

I've got a feeling Vettel's going to win this year's as well. Maybe he's going to win this year's, next year's, etc like Schumi. Why do Germans (almost) always win?

I think so too (I've put him to win in an F1 Prediction Championship anyway). I'm ok with him winning again. A lot of people seem to dislike him (probably just because he wins), but I think he's a very funny and likeable chap.

I would be very much up for that : ) Or Le Mans.

It was my decision with the tix, there was a charity thing on yesterday that I was asked to do so couldn't go to the F1 over that in good conscience!

Think I'm going to Spa this year instead : )
