I'm not sure it can download much; but it will add a bit of downforce :lol:

It seems you are a bit Bias towards the Red team.
Might it have anything todo with you being a spaniard yourself, and Alonso... :?
What is the point of trying to Crusify Costa? He has made a few very fast cars in his time at Ferrari, some of them winning races and championships....Sour Grapes maybe?
I wish i was that "useless" :roll:
As i said on this thread, i am a Mclaren fan and i do not like Alonso and i do not like Ferrari

And after reading a bit, i think i know how to act:

Mercedes is the best, and the W03 will be the best car ever.

Imagine nerdy boy (Vettel) riding this thing. This amazing machine would suddenly turn uncool. Yes, it is his bike.

TESTING TIMES mean ---. Maybe this is the first year you are checking testing so regularly. But I generally did not tend to follow testing times very regularly but I made an exception last year as I had huge hopes of the WO2. And let me tell you they dont mean anything.

A Carteham can beat a RBR. If they run a hard tyre it can be 1.5s slower than the soft,there is 6-7s difference empty & full Fuel tanks. DRS + KERS counts for 1-1.5s off depending on the track. And then it depends on setups & how hard they are pushing.
yea i know test results mean nothing but first run with w03 need to be strong!!! to scare opponents

Mclaren could have a great year. They didn't do anything to extreme this year like last years sidepods.

You never know. Everyone thought the same about Ferrari last year then in the first race they were over a second off the pace.

I'm just glad that the car is solid and at the moment it looks to be at least a clear 2nd best. I'm especially glad since it looks like the midfield has tightened up this year, with Renault and Force India joining Merc in putting in some good times. I think that's what's worrying Ferrari fans the most right now - fall too far back from the leaders and suddenly you're in the midst of three pretty competitive teams and some more than pretty good drivers. A bad qually session and you'll surely find yourself on the 6th row fighting for small points.

Ah yes, because both Red Bulls are doing amazing. If it wasn't for Vettel, Red Bull would have still won an amazing 3 races in 2011! Not like the Schumacher era, when it was all Schumacher and Barichello barely ever came second. Oh wait...

ER.... THAT'S 1 SEASON, IN '10 WEBBER WAS DOING JUST FINE, CLEARLY THE '11 TYRES DID NOT SUIT HIM...WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN FOR THE LAST YEAR?
the EDGE wrote:vettel era....not on your Nelly, he barely won in '10, didn't even top the standings till the very very end
2010 was more than any other recent season influenced by mechanical faillures. Only counting faillures outside the drivers' grip, Vettel lost 62 points, and would have otherwise won the championship with races to spare, and a total of 63 points ahead of Hamilton.

COME ON...AL DRIVERS HAD DNF'S WHICH WERE NOT THEIR FAULT, LETS NOT PLAY THE WHAT IF GAME...IT HAS NO ENDING
bhall2gk wrote:what you said
Why is the Red Bull considered super fast because Vettel (and only Vettel) is bloody good in it, and is the Ferrari considered a bad car because Massa (and only Massa) is fighting back with the Mercedes' and Renaults?
HELLO, ANYBODY WHO THINK THE REDBULL IS NOT BLOODY FAST SHOULD SEE A DOCTOR...QUICK

Hey Webber scored better than Heikki did in 2008 and 2009. And I actually think heikki is faster than Webber (though not as good race craft). The RedBull must be very good. Two WCC back to back. When was the last time I see drivers give up by the 5th race? haha.. All the guys except Webber Gave up by Valencia. The car must be flipping good! haha

WHAT THE EDGE IS SAYING IS TAKE THE REBULL AWAY FROM VETTEL AND PUT HIM IN A FERRARI OR A MAC AND HE WOULD NOT HAVE WON LAST YEAR...LETS AT LEAST WAIT AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS THIS YEAR BEFORE WE START BANDING AROUND TERMS LIKE 'VETTEL ERA''
