    It has to be done and said!.

    I also want Pirelli to be banned from F1 because of the shenanigans they are pulling. I was fully expecting, as the tire choice list was announced, that the tire choices will be the same as in China. Soft and Medium but Pirelli brought Soft and Hard. That really pissed me off.

    Of course, this debris killing tires rhetoric by that fat crap is pain too. Lying endlessly!. I was happy when Vettel spoke the truth.

    Bring back the best, the Michelin!.

    What Pirelli have done is what they were asked to do, I have said it before and I am saying it again Pirelli is not the problem they are the solution to a problem caused by the so called FIA Overtaking Working Group who can't understand the simplest rule that for overtaking you need to cut the aero drag between cars mostly known as "dirty air". The best way to go for it is to use mechanical downforce instead of aerodownforce, can you believe it that the purpose of 2009 regulations was to go that way but from the start they move away from it when FIA allows the DD diffuser followed by EB diffuser in 2010 onwards.

    Also, it is not a joke that some of the best races happens in the Pirelli era plus we already more memorable passes from different drivers in this era then we have in the bridgestone era. As for Michelin, well they are not the best because they already created a big controversy back in 2005 Indianapolis GP when only 6 Bridgestone cars competed in the race as 14 Michelin cars withdraws on the safety ground. The whole 2005 season was a Michelin shenanigans year where they were favouring one team over others.

    Tyre management is always part of F1 racing so where was Vettel's opinion in previous years when he was able to handle the tyres easily now with RB9 not being able to handle the tyres he is saying stuff that was said by others previously. Now Ferrari and Lotus are able to handle the tyres easily and are showing signs of anger when Pirelli says that they will change the tyres from Canada by a quite bit. Although Pirelli have been stopped by FIA from making substantial changes to the tyres apart from safety enhancement following multiple blowouts, so we have to see what the hard tyres will do in Canada.

    How were those shenanigans?. They brought much extreme and softer tires compared to Bridgestone. Ferrari/Bridgestone used to make one lesser stop compared to Renault/Michelin. Best man won in the end.

    I'll take that kind of racing over today's racing any day. Main thing to say here is that I dont want one tire supplier. That is it. 2 should be here and non better than Michelin!. I hope they do return in 2015.

    @NakedTruth
    In 2005, tyre stops were banned and only fuel stop was allowed so your reply to my comment shows how much you remember that era correctly. The 2 contenders for the title were both running Michelin and the current champion of that time was on Bridgestone who are facing the dilemma of their life time. They were not able to produce tyres that could last the whole race with the same performance something like what we are seeing nowadays with Pirelli rubber. Michelin on the other hand was providing specified tyres to one team and one driver while the other teams and drivers were facing problems with the tyres including the second contender who was also on the receiving end of tyres induce bad luck resulting a certain victory becoming an immediate retirement. It was until late in the season when FIA intervenes and told Michelin to provide more balance tyres to all the teams that the championship sees a close finish.

    Michelin are not coming in the near future because their first requirement is some thing all the teams and FIA are not ready to accept at all.

    I am really sad to say that Kimi has got 24 consecutive points finishes. I really wanted him to retire or come 11th.

    Massa needs to die. As simple as that. Couldn't pass a broken car. Pathetic. Really pathetic. I hope he is gone after this year. Go drive a damn Caterham.

    Now, there you go. Vettel won!. Really surprised by Alonso. We pulled one out of the bag.

    I dont really care about Alonso's stupid comments that Vettel is due some bad luck. WTF is that?. Reliability is top notch and what if Vettel doesn't retire once and finishes every race on podium or top 5?. What then?. So, yeah. Don't really care about Alonso's rant about bad luck. You need to check yourself and your team that likes to make stupid mistakes.

    BTW, maple head died. Blame the radio/headphones. Then again, fat people, specially fat marshals, shouldn't be on the track. I dont need to write examples to what happens to them when the call of duty arrives.

    @ everyone

    What are your views on bad luck?. 17 days to the next race so lets discuss bad luck. :p

    Seb has extended his contract with RBR to 2015.
    Every time someone refers to Honda Civic as 'reborn', a puppy dies! Oh and I hate increasing my post count.

    @NakedTruth
    Bad luck or good luck depends on the time any incident happens and the consequences that it brought which are faces by others. I will give you 2 examples of that:
    1) Season 1984: Monaco GP was held under treacherous weather conditions Prost in the McLaren was leading the race while Ayrton Senna in the Toleman was coming through the field with some brilliant overtaking in the wet. After sometime as it looks like that Ayrton could take the lead Prost start waving hands to the officials for stopping the race, although by the time they stop the race Ayrton has already overtaken Prost but because of the rules of F1 the race was counted to be stopped at 2 laps before the original stoppage and Prost was leading at that point of time so was awarded the win with only half points were awarded as the only 50% of the race distance was covered. At the end of the season Prost lost the title to his team mate Niki Lauda by 0.5 point the same half point that he tries to earn in the Monaco GP by avoiding to lost to Senna. The good luck from Monaco becomes the bad luck for the whole season.

    2) Season 2008: The famous Singapore GP after the safety car deployed and all the teams call their drivers to pits Massa in the Ferrari came in the pits as the leader of the race and left the pits as the last car after the technical mishap while Alonso who pitted a lap earlier and was way down at 15 takes the lead of the race because of the same safety car. So one incident results bad luck and good luck for 2 different drivers at the same time.

    Just as a side question: Does anyone here (or has anyone here) followed IndyCar or Champ Car?
