      First comp word is 'Lancer' - if you win the Evo, I want a drive.
      And I don't blame Sato for having a go, even if it did turn out badly.
      And he's just lost his engine.

      Good to see Webber get some points.
      Pity Sato spoiled his podium chance.
      Montreal in 2 weeks should be good- live at 2:30am

    8. 05-30-2004 11:25 AM #81
      As Rubens said, it was very 'amatuer' of Sato to do what he did... Maybe his engine failure was punishment for that

    9. 05-31-2004 01:04 AM #82
      Does anyone know what is actually happening to Sato's engine?
      Everytime I drive behind a HAHAHonda now I have the dance music up loud waiting for the smoke effect

    10. 05-31-2004 04:32 AM #83
      Do they ever tell you exactly what happened? doubt it.. All i know was I saw masses of think white smoke pouring out
      Looked cool

    11. 05-31-2004 06:56 AM #84
      Total domination that's what I like

      What has the press been saying about Montoya? I couldn't find anything other than a very clinical review of what happened in Monaco, and then yesterday, he just took Ralf out!
      I knew the bloke was aggressive, but how was that footage of him trying to get around Christian Klein? Wow, that guy really wants to win. Pity he can't control himself.
      We watched the race in a pub in the Swiss Alps yesterday. The German commentator suggested that Barrichelo was asleep when sato went passed him...

    15. 06-12-2004 12:10 AM #88
      Well, Friday practice sees ferrari fastest, bar second and Kimi third!!!!
      Come on Kimi....

    16. 06-12-2004 08:36 AM #89
      For everyone's information, looks like it'll be on the TV at 2:15am. Good thing we can all sleep in that morning - right?

    17. 06-12-2004 08:11 PM #90
      Then England v France afterwards

    18. 06-12-2004 09:15 PM #91
      Looks like a hum dinger!!!! What were people saying about ralf being a dud???

      18 21 Zsolt Baumgartner Minardi-Cosworth 1:17.064
      19 12 Felipe Massa Sauber-Petronas No time

      20 20 Gianmaria Bruni Minardi-Cosworth No time

      Prediction...
      Kimi will make a few places up front, but later his engine will blow; Ralf will be beaten into the first corner, and then spin on the second last corner of the first lap; Michael will win it in the pitstops, Montoya will snap another nosecone, and drive like crazy to catch up after replacing it; Rubens will have an uneventful race, but will finish on the podium...Jenson will also get on the podium... Any wagers, boys???

      Haha... reading the drivers comments, Michael was saying he has won from lower down the order, and Kimi was saying it would be nice to finish AND get some points.... [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Looks like a pretty good grid. Hopefully Reubens can stay ahead of Kimi and I reckon Trulli will lead at the end of the first lap. A bad day for Webber?

      The only predictions of mine which didnt come true were Ralfs spin, and Montoyas nose cone. Oh and Kimis engine blow, but he did have problems!!! I should have bet on a trifecta!!!
      I reckon thats a bit lame with the disquals... Good for Kimi, though... Now he is = 13 All up, a bit of a boring race... Indianapolis will be run by seppo's, so it will be full of cliched symbolism... I might even give that one a miss!!!

      Sounds like a good excuse to avoid an all nighter in front of the TV!
      Lucky the bike racing before last night's race was interesting or I may have missed the F1.

      Man, I got to see it on video, and I am glad I caught it!!! 20 start, 8 finish!!!! BOTH MCCLARENS!!!!!

      Ralfs first question to his doctor: "what happened?" What a stack... 320kmh backwards. Sato drove awesomely. Couldnt believe Montoyas luck, or lack there of!!! Missed out on getting into the T car by less than 2 seconds.... What a race... Boring result, though....
      News flash: McClaren to run new car at the french GP at Magny Cours.... Yeah, baby. Bring on a mid season revival!!!! The only driver who can beat Michael now is Barrichelo, and thats just never going to happen... Its schumies championship!!!
