  1. I know it's very early , but I am super excited for this race . It seems like it's been ages since the last title decider in Brasil 2012. I'm hoping Nico wins it , but I don't want him to win it by double points or by a mechanical failure for Hamilton. But knowing my luck in the last few title deciders , that's what will happen.  Laps55Circuit length5.554 km (3.451 mi)Race length305.470 km (189.810 mi)Number of times held5First held2009Most wins (drivers) Sebastian Vettel (3)Most wins (constructors) Red Bull (3)

    Formula E Thread

    I actually forgot about this until I stumbled upon a video on Youtube. The first race is in China around September and they still have that stupid fan boost thing. I like the idea of an overtake button with limited usage , but fans voting to give a driver an extra one ? Complete BS. Anyway ,  I'll be supporting Trulli and da Costa and I'm looking forward to it. http://www.fiaformulae.com/en/teams.aspx

    UEFA EURO 2016 QUALIFIERS

    I can't post an image so ....
  4. The Williams team dominated the first outings there, taking all victories until 1994. Michael Schumacher has won a total of six times, including his 1996 victory in heavy rain, which was his first for Ferrari. Mika Häkkinen took three victories and was on road for fourth in 2001 before his car failed on the last lap. Since 2003 the race has been well attended thanks to success of Fernando Alonso. Alonso finished second in 2003 and 2005 before taking victory from pole in 2006. Alonso also finished third in 2007, with two further second places in 2010 and 2012, where he finished behind the Williams of Spanish speaking Pastor Maldonado, who won from pole; this was the first win and pole in a Grand Prix for a Venezulean driver and Williams' first win since the 2004 Brazilian Grand Prix and the team's first Spanish Grand Prix win and pole since 1997. Two Spanish drivers have won the Spanish Grand Prix; Carlos de Salamanca in 1923 and Alonso in 2006 and 2013, with Spanish speaking Juan Manuel Fangio winning in 1951 as well as Maldonado in 2012. From 2013, the Spanish Grand Prix was supposed to alternate every year between the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Barcelona and the Valencia Street Circuit in Valencia,Spain.[1] However, this did not happen—Valencia dropped out for financial reasons and Catalunya will once again be the sole host of the Spanish Grand Prix.[2]

    Another game from the old forums. This time hopefully it won't die out. :)  
  6. Driver Battles 2014 It’s looking set for another year of great racing so I’ll try and bring along a new game.. Driver Battles is a new game where you predict the outcome of pair of drivers I put together for each weekend.  Sooo , lets get stuck in . The Rules 1.)    Entries must be submitted by 11:59 PM GMT at the latest.. There will be no exceptions to the rule , but you can change your predictions as many times as you want by making a brand new post.  No editing your old 1 because I can't see the time you edited it. 2.)    If a driver is changed during a race weekend and you have already submitted your entry , the replacement driver will be used and you may not change your entry. If the driver cannot race and there is no replacement , that teammate battle will be excluded from the results. 3.)    I ask that entries would be submitted in the following format :   Alonso vs Vettel : VETTEL Raikkonen vs Massa : MASSA Ricciardo vs Rosberg : DRAW And so on   Or similar. Just choose a non confusing format and stick with it. 4.)    In the case of a draw , the person who submitted their votes first will win. 5.)    Failure to post your entry means I will use your entry for the previous round. If you miss 3 races in a row , you will need to post new predictions in order to score points. 6.)    A driver wins a battle by finishing in front of their partnered driver in qualifying AND the race. So for example if Alonso finishes 3rd  in qualiying and Raikkonen 4th , but Raikkonen beats Alonso in the race , then it’s a draw. 7.)    In the unlikely event of both drivers retiring , and not setting times in qualifying , then the driver who completed the most laps wins.

    It's particularly disappointing if the Merc's weren't even giving it full tilt considering they nearly lapped the whole field.

    This is depressing stuff from McLaren. Also from Hamilton. I really hope Rosberg ups his game or this season will be a real borefest.

    Yeah, you'll count towards a team if some one signs up later in the season. I could team up with Mr.Rong if he wants.  :)

    Damn , I'm late to this . Sign me up and if anyone still hasn't gotten a teammate, then I'll gladly team up.

    F1 2015 car thread

    They all look nicer this year apart from the Ferrari , the Mercedes and the Sauber imo. Also , Ferrari , McLaren and Red Bull are planning shorter noses for Melbourne if they pass the crash test.

    F1 2015 Winter Testing

    The Macca's the best looking car on the grid. And the Red Bull is a stunner in that camouflage livery. The nose on the McLaren looks like someones big toe :p Mercedes is the best looking to me because they haven't put part of somebody foot on the front lol.  That Red Bull does look nice though, and I'm hoping they do something different and don't just go back to the usual livery after testing. We've been spoiled with the camouflage! The Ferarri's nose is much worse , and McLaren's is nothing different to what we've seen pre 2014. I do agree with you on the Merc though. That's my second favourite.

    People are getting way too worked up over the livery. The car itself is beautiful and if it goes fast I couldn't care less how it looks. There are rumours it won't even be the final livery anyway.

    The Place You Live

    Oh yeah , and a pet snake escaped here around 2 years ago. Some poor woman found it underneath her bed. Apart from that , robberies occur pretty often around here.

    The Place You Live

    I live in a small town ( it's more of a village tbh ) in Laois , Ireland. It's a pretty rubbish if I'm honest. There's a few shops about 5 pubs over the space of 200 meters  , a chip shop and there's a park but it's constantly vandalised. The only place of interest is the GAA pitch but I have no interest in either hurling or Gaelic football , so there's pretty much nothing to do for me here. I would post pictures , but there's 5 pictures of the town on Wikipedia and they all show the exact same place ,and it's really only a few shops and houses.  :p

    I struggle in the wet too quite often although having said that my first win on F1 2010 was in the wet How can you still remember that ? :o

    So Stevie G is leaving. I'm not really sure how to feel about this. He's a legend of the club , but then he really hasn't contributed enough this season imo.

    Picked up Far Cry 4 yesterday. Really enjoying it so far , and there's so much to do. It runs nicely and I've only had a few minor glitches which don't really affect the gameplay.
