Button was using Hamilton's setup this weekend. So that's probably why he seemed uncomfortable.

Was really glad to see Schumi on the podium again.

Going to Spa in 2009 was probably one of my most favorite trips. Eau Rouge in person is just INSANE.

Spa kinda sucked IMO from a spectators perspective.

You only see the cars go by 44 times and the grandstand seats are sick expensive. If you dont have a grandstand seat you have to sit on the hills where you life is at risk from falling rocks loosened by the people sitting above you.

In addition, the organizers are fucking monkeys... they dont provide enough trash cans around the track so there is trash fucking everywhere. I mean everywhere... walking around the place you feel like you're at a landfill.

One nice part was after the race being able to walk the track. I walked all the way from turn 4 down the hill past the bus stop, that was a nice walk. Interesting to feel the track under you.

Being on the track was definitely cool. And you're right, there was trash EVERYWHERE.

Race day we ended up sitting over by Pouhon cause we got the track later than we hoped. It wasn't a bad spot.
Practice we watched from in between Blanchimont and the final chicane also over by Eau Rouge.
Spent most of quali at Eau Rouge and the Kemmel Straight.

The money spent and time had was way better than Indy in 2006.

Wait. McLaren doesn't suck at pitstops?

After much focus on the team's performances in the pits this year, the McLaren pit crew completed a 2.6-second stop at Lewis Hamilton's first stop in Valencia to set a new benchmark in F1.

They are fucking up almost every race, but they never used to be a problem. I recall a time at Ferrari where they were shit, but Mclaren, while never the superstars Williams were in their day were always consistent.

This recent spate of problems is rather odd.

I think they're trying to be particular clever with some equipment they use to speed up pitstops. They'll keep tripping over themselves until they work the kinks out.

I'm still furious about that idiot ruining Hammy's race ....

At the beginning of the GP, Maldonado had already made a few dick moves and I've put him in my driver shit list...then just when things couldn't get any worse, he runs into Hamilton ffffuuuu.gif


And sucks for Vettel... another mechanical frown.gif




BTW - any read that article about The Dark Knight and Lotus pairing up for marketing this weekend??! They'll have batman's ride onsite as well.

Still waiting for an explanation of how three drivers can set their fastest times with a car across the track and still get through to Q3...

Crazy session.

Trying to understand how Hamilton was screaming fast in Q1 and 2 and had no pace in 3.

Button w no pace again. Starting to become a crisis.

Hamilton said he couldn't get the inters into their operating temperature range. He was mystified.
