It's called emphasis.Giblet wrote:Stop typing everything in caps if you think we don't understand.
I thought the teams had one more week.
We weren't. At least not if you understand the verb "to argue" as "to disagree", because it can also mean "to show", or "to reason". But I just explained my use of capitals to you, and to emphasize that my original post wasn't meant to be offensive I informed you that I, as a person, do not yell at people, not even when I'm arguing, and surely not when I'm not arguing.Giblet wrote:I wasn't aware we were in an argument. I guess that is part of the problem.
Not me, that would be the FIA.Giblet wrote:You ASSUME that things NEED to get DUMBED down a shade.
Apart from a very few selected posts, where my aim was to make fun of conspiracy theorists (see "irony"), you really think my posts are presented unstructured? You really think my posts "butcher the language"? Please send me a PM quoting some of these posts. A sentence is not necessarily better structured if it is shorter, and a long sentence may be well structured. Changing paragraphs is something you're supposed to do when you change a subject, not a sentence. Proof of that can be found, well, in any book. If you imply you find it hard to understand my English I do apologize as it is not my native language, but having studied the English language since elementary school, having a Cambridge First Certificate in English, Cambridge Proficiency in English, Certificate of adequacy to teach the English language, IELTS (Academic) and living, working, and doing an MSc course in the UK, honestly, this is the first time someone has a difficulty understanding my English. I actually find it quite amusing when British people at work or at the university ask me about spelling of English words, or to proofread something they wrote. I know it's tragic, but it does happens a lot.Giblet wrote:My eyes are fine, and I do appreciate you structuring your paragraphs and sentences in a way that is readable and being somewhat in a style that has something to do with LANGUAGE. Poor eyesight has nothing to do with people butchering the language so bad their posts look like a random string of characters. When you use proper sentences and paragraph structure, your thoughts are presented to be organized, and understood, as opposed to a random train of thought. A period at the end of something means "done".
Well, no one does. Emphasis is not purposed to be explanatory, it is just supposed to show or state that something is particularly important or worth giving attention to.Giblet wrote:I don't need emphasis to understand what is typed on the screen in front of me.
Apologize again, but, honestly, that is what I really thought when you said you have difficulties reading through my posts because I don't change paragraphs and my sentences are too long. I can't see why having poor eyesight should be considered an insult. It is a medical condition.Giblet wrote:Comments about eyes and such are just dick things to say, and come across very crass and ARGUMENTATIVE.
So we got a Prodrive team with Aston Martin badged engines made by Mercedes HPE Ltd. Good outcome!David Richards set for 2010 F1 entry
Racing series F1
David Richards' Banbury-based outfit is set to make its Formula One debut next year.
The team, expected to link up technically with McLaren-Mercedes, will initially enter the world championship as Prodrive, before becoming Aston Martin by 2012.
It is believed Richards, formerly team boss at Benetton and BAR, committed to lodging his official paperwork by Friday's deadline after discussions with Bernie Ecclestone that lasted until late Wednesday night.
It was on Wednesday that the FIA rules finally became clear (pending official confirmation), following a compromise deal amid the existing teams' standoff with the sport's ruling bodies.
Next year, the budget cap will be 100m, with special concessions such as cheap components offered to small teams, before the figure shrinks to 45m in 2011.
"The cars will be built at Banbury and have Aston Martin-badged customer engines obtained from a supplier," Richards confirmed to Autocar.
Among the backers is Aston Martin's majority owner Investment Dar, a Kuwaiti shareholding company, and another Middle Eastern interest.
and the other teams are USF1, Campos Racing, and Epsilon. Again I say a worthy outcome if Toyota decide to quit. If not one of those gusy will not be admitted.it seems that part of the agreement is that the teams will agree to supply engines, gearboxes and so on to new teams, at a sensible price. The likelihood is that there will be at least two and possible as many as four new teams applying for franchises. It is anticipated that USF1, Adrian Campos’s Campos Racing (as opposed to Alejandro Agag’s Addax team, formerly known as Campos) and Prodrive will apply for entries and it is believed that Joan Villadelprat’s Epsilon team could also be putting in an entry. Epsilon has the people and facilities to build its own cars in a new factory in Spain. Campos is believed to be close to signing a deal to have chassis supplied by Dallara.
I guess that they'd award the franchise according to the most credible business plan : there's no point in allowing a team to enter if they're going to fall apart after one season.ISLAMATRON wrote:LOLA just confirmed puting their bid in
so now we got
With possibly more in the works... Espilon
What will be done if there are too many entries? would sure be nice to have prequalifying
