Sometimes you try something new (for me at least) and it actually works

Well, as a follow-up on the original thread where the greatest drivers were discussed, I have to say that my most sincere thoughts are going to Schumacher, who's in critical condition after a severe head injury while skying in the french alps. He is in intensive care ina an artificial coma and hypothermia to prevent further brain damage. That is surely one poor way of coming in to 2014...
He may not be the best sportsman, but he surely is part of F1 history. Hope he recovers without sequels.
... Hope you like them
I like them all ...Especially the 4th one on the left
Having watched Vettel race since 2009, and especially how many pole positions he achieves...and how he is able to snatch a fast qualifying time out of the fire at will with nerves of steel...I dunno it just seems like nobody else is able to do that. Sure he has the best car, designer and team. Maybe after the new chassis and powerplants come in, he won't have the best car anymore, and his dominance will be over? People like you probably hope so, but I am kind of pulling for him I guess. I kind of see myself in him. Somebody who has a killer instinct and mind-blowing reaction times, but still likes to think of themselves as a nice guy.
Sorry I’ve missed this thread until now. Sorry also for my long reply. Going back to the OP’s question…..
Have to disagree again on Alonso and Hamilton, sorry. I think this is just Vettel hating, nothing more. Some people resent his (and his team's) success, I don't.
If you're not even a Brit, yet you're a fan of Lewis Hamilton, that is very odd...but I don't mean any personal offense toward you! I don't have enough friends who even follow F1, at least not currently.
I'm delighted you're a true and knowledgeable F1 fan. Like you say, next season could be the beginning of a new era. Let's hope the rules changes will allow for closer competition. On the other hand we know Adrian Newey will always come up with something special. I hope the new rules will at least move the scale little bit away from aerodynamic innovation only. Vettel is a tier 1 driver, but not a five times in a row champion. Let's hope for a driver's season next year.
There are so many changes on the way, such as Christian Horner being rumoured to replace Bernie, who knows where Ross Brawn will go, will Kimi stay or retire if Ferrari do not win the championship over the next 2 seasons, will the new (stolen?) Aero team at Williams bring them back to their former glory, will Toyota, BMW or Jaguar re-enter the sport once they see the developments and advancements that Honda make?
I am continually in awe of the rapid changes or dynamics that happen within this sport, my wife says that between F1 and photography I am not allowed any other hobbies because I have an obsessive personality!!!! I think she’s over reacting myself but hey ho, what'da I know!!
I'm kind of not all that enthusiastic about hybrid power, but I guess for the time being there's no stopping it. I'm of the opinion that it certainly does not conserve resources, when used at the consumer level, given all the pollution, resources, and money expended on mining the raw material for the batteries. It's also not a money maker for the manufacturers, it's a money loser (other than the luxury models that already have a lot of profit built in).
As for Lewis, I'm not remotely a fan of his. He's an arrogant, entitled piece of garbage, and his driving style is unfocused, lacks discipline and consistency...again in my opinion...but his record bears this out. He's a walking man-diva, and that has no place in racing.
It's time for you all to find a new young brit driver to rally around...hopefully one will come forward soon.
We in the USA don't have any F1 drivers to rally around
