Race starts in 3 hours.I signed up to sky sport yesterday 5 mins before qualifying so i could watch
Cant wait for the start.No traction control should be interesting
Heh, I love live television, I just watched the race again, well skipped through most of it up until Coulthard's crash and when he said hes going to kick a few shades of shit out of massa.
Haha that was gold, wonder if massa will apologise, what was the reason for massa's retirement? I never heard em say.
what was the reason for massa's retirement?
Ferrari look a bit shit so far...
The best thing about Finance Minister Bill English\'s latest Budget is that it does finally signal a much greater role for the private sector in the New Zealand economy. And another step along the way to extract this country from the political cul-de-sac in which Helen Clark\'s Labour Government parked us.
Na, just their drivers. :finger:
I guess that could quite easily upset a few of the drivers and make it easier for them to crash. Possibly contributed to the whole fact that like 6 or 7 drivers finished the race.
Regarding Massa, I'm actually going to criticise DC on this - Massa was well past where he needed to be, and DC turning in took himself out. I watched the replay a number of occasions and Massa was well past the sidepod which is where the unwritten rule says the overtaking car needs to be for the manoever to be considered a success.
but the point for me is that Coulthard had the racing line, Massa was coming in hot - i don't think he would have made the corner (like Raikonnen didn't) if he hadn't bumped Coulthard.
When i saw it live i was shouting at the telly and abusing Massa. When i saw the replay, it wasn't as conclusive, but the point for me is that Coulthard had the racing line, Massa was coming in hot - i don't think he would have made the corner (like Raikonnen didn't) if he hadn't bumped Coulthard. I think he thought that he was able to squeeze through ahead, but there was no way, Coulthard was already committed to that line. I think what really pissed him off was that he didn't take Massa out as well. :heheh:
Massa was definitely not going in too hot, he had the corner and Coulthard fucked up!!
I know what you mean - at first I thought the same. But on reflection and watching the replay a few times it was clear that Massa had made the pass
[video]FE7-kQPWLNc[/video]Really? Massa has no line, he has no position and he has no rights. If you have a look, he's off the track on the inside as Coulthard does a standard manoevre on the corner.Not from the way i see it on this replay. Like you, i'd only seen the side on camera view up til now, but it seems clear to me that Coulthard has all the rights. In fact, if you freeze the video at 0:16, you'll see that Massa's wheel is only in line with Coulthard's, even though he's begun his turn in at the corner. Like i said before, i think what pissed DC off so much is that he wanted to take Massa out, which was the most logical end to a crap move by him (Massa).
