    Having not watched local FTA coverage for two years Ten/Ones coverage makes me want to top myself.

    Bring back tower wings! Just Marussia and HRT to go?

    I'd say its been photoshopped in there. There's no way you could illuminate the logo and have the rest of the nose black. But I'd agree it's gonna be a step nose. Why else have an otherwise almost complete outline of the car and then a whopping great blackspot at the fugly part? The other black spot is the exhaust positioning for obvious reasons.

    They were on the car last year too. They're cut a lot higher up this year though. Monza 2011: http://www.formula1.com/wi/enlarge/1540x785/popup/sutton/2011/d11ita758.jpg

    Pretty sure there's an FIA technical directive saying that they wont allow the exhaust to be redirected like that for aero purposes. Something to that effect anyway. I'd fully expect that McLaren exhaust to disappear in the near future.

    I think you'd want the complete opposite to happen. Have the McLaren right at the back and the most pig ugly car up the front. If the McLaren demolishes all then the FIA wont have any reason to change the rules to force less ugly cars. "See, they can do it with a low nose, whats your excuse?" McLaren have been saying the car will change between the launch and Jerez. Anyone wanna bet it pulls out of the garage at Jerez with a stepped nose like everyone else? (I hope not!)

    Ah, I don't get out enough phew Dunno what I'm gonna do next year. BBC stream was so great, I actually enjoyed the commentary and discussion during the FPs more than quali and the race. Brundle just doesn't think before he opens his mouth 90% of the time. If I had a dollar for every time DC said "Now hang on Martin..." Might just get whatever stream I can and listen to Radio 5 for commentary.

    NOOOOO! Not Crofty! f**king Sky... From what I've read DC is staying with the BBC. Fewer races would probably suit his schedule better at the moment. Interesting with Ferrari and 3 car teams. With the number of good quality drivers missing out on seats it'd be nice to see a few 3 car teams. TeamOrders++;

    You lot are quick to jump on the bandwagon of unsupported assumptions. Could it be that they have a desire to spent more money but currently don't? No way they MUST be cheating! It's the only explanation!
  11. From: http://www.infrastructure.gov.au/roads/vehicle_regulation/bulletin/importing_vehicles/general/pdf/VSB10_info_brochure_july_2011.pdf emphasis mine. AFAIK the S13 and on chassis' were never homologated with the FIA so theres the 180SX and Silvia out from the get go. Wouldn't surprise me if they're saying there's enough GTRs (and silvias/180sx) to purchase locally, presuming it was a BNR32 and actually had FIA homologation. How does ichi bahn operate? Import race only vehicles and then sell them on or just as an agent? Could it be an issue with the single vehicle requirement?

    Like Jenson just said in the post race interview, it can be better coming out second because you get the DRS. Its just unfortunate the DRS seems to barely work on the Redbulls and provides a zillion miles an hour for the McLarens.

    For sure. Webbers still got it. Of course there's gonna be the usual conspiracy about the pitstop but I suspect Webber may have flatspotted the front left on what became the in lap. Pitting a lap later would have had the same result and a lap earlier could have compromised how long he could run later too. Who knows. I felt the DRS detection zone was a tad idiotic and the circuit overall wasn't particularly exciting to watch. So much for Paul Hembery being a liar eh?
