I hope you are well too.... despite the official Button Worshipper title...


I know that feeling well but lets hope the rumours are true for 2010.....

I am quite jealous Scully...I am kept awake at night by your voice telling me how silly it is to support a team instead of a driver....will Enzo come and haunt me if I support schumi in a Merc?? aaaaarrrgghhh :hit) I have supported Ferrari quite happily since I was 6 years old and now this German tests my loyalty and gives Kop and Hoody (yes...he taunts me in the ether...its not funny) enough hook to last a whole season >>>>>:L

So in the very end of things.... it'll be the guy and not the team...



But I just knew you couldn't help but follow Ross in the end....

I know waht you mean about F1 being empty... felt like that for years for me after Senna

i supose because of my love of all things technical, i had something to keep my interest.

Hakkinen, then Hamilton and now vettal have given me a little bit of what i missed back,.... but there will never be another Senna, though I will be rooting for Bruno, I get a hunch he will not be in uncle Ayrton's mould



The funny thing is , I never felt that way about F1 .......

Sure I was a bit peeved when Brabham could not be arsed to enter a car for 88 Bernie was doing other things ......

but I did feel that way about rallying ...

Especially after Toivenen died & then many years later when Richard Burns died ....rallying has never been the same since & with only 2 manufaturers involved & S2000 on the way the future looks bleak....

I am not a rally fan but I feel for you Kop...I have read about it for however long and it is all a bit bleak...such a shame, and frustrating that someone doesn't pull their finger out and sort it :?

F1 has been very very empty for me...and just when things were hotting up a bit and I thought Alonso at the team may bring back a bit of passion...my driver fulfills a major dream to return and f*cks with my head like this.

Can I support both? or.....have a mercedes sabbatical ???

bbllleeeuuuughgghhh :shock:

Heres a few more Cat







If you discount Kimi's "off" then his times are exactly 1sec per km off Sordo, that is very very impressive...

Not sure TBH, he lost more than 30 mins with his off. His co driver says they want to get the gap down to 0.5 per sec per km off Sordo tommorow.

:shock:


Here is a Kimi interview here, I have no idea what he is saying ,but I have never seen the Guy look so happy & animated ...
