It is magic though.

Let's not forget The band Oasis was called Oasis because of Swindon.

Up to 224 now :)


That is just ACE!!! :thumbup:


So what happened?? A scant three weeks on and we're down to under 40 posts. :( and this with the European season and all that brings close upon us. Who will have gained/ lost and all the interesting speculation about the rest of the season.
Things were looking so good. It's a bit sad. Hope it's just a blip. :cry:

Won't change much until a different team wins a GP I reckon.

That wasn't the case when Red Bull was winning every GP.

Is it because when they were winning, few people believed it was a legitimate car they had? :yes:
Or... because some people weren't impressed with Vettel's finger? :yes:
Or... because some people couldn't believe what rotten luck their favourite driver/team was having? :yes:
Or... was it all of the above, depending on the race? :yes:

Nice opinions you've got there now that we know how a very vocal Ferrari fan feels, maybe all the Vettel fans can chime in?

Well, not as a Vettel fan, but probably as someone who would be put in the box "because some people couldn't' believe what rotten luck their driver/ team were having", I'll chime in.

There was debate during the Vettel dominance yeas because there were interesting things to debate like....
- is it the diver or the car?
- how good is Vettel actually?
- is that car legit? What evidence do we have either way?
- How does Vettel get his advantage?
- is Vettel favoured over Webber
- the Whitmarsh Button conspiracy
- will Lewis leave McLaren? Where will he go?
- what's up with Grosjean?
- What's up with Maldonado?
- Pirelli tyres this/ Pirelli tyres that.

Etc etc etc etc

There is always something interesting to discuss in F1 and there are generally two sides to an argument/ discussion. Two, or three or four. And that's great so long as discussion is carried out with respect to other viewpoints and acceptance of other viewpoints.
