Quote from JJ72 :Sorry but if i am Michael Schumacher I wouldn't worry about my racing cred cos no matter how I do as a stand in, it won't change my reputation at all.

People reading too much into news like this I suppose.

Well you are not are you.

Racing driver is always as good as his last race.

Quote from Mustafur :
If he betters Kimi, well there goes kimis job.

The reason Schumi bailed was Kimi. Not being 100% fit serves as a good excuse as he would have lost, complaining about the neck after the race would have just been classic racing driver excuses which are always bullshit. Loosing against the unfit one time champion alcoholic who sucks at driving and is not interested in F1 anymore (which is all rubbish) would just shit all over Schumi's reputation as the best driver of all times.

And if Badoer was that fast he wouldn't be a full time test driver would he?

Quote from samjh :Third fastest in Group N. Impressive! He's definitely a Finn!

To be fair the S2000 cars are faster and can take much more bashing than the N-group cars. But he wasn't the slowest S2000 car and was doing well considering his rally experience. Crashes happen and it's part of the game, and I think it's better than having to pull over for technical reasons.

Quote from Greboth :That would be interesting then, if you can vary things like pressure. Though raises question if you turn it up too high will you damage your engine? You could damage your engine in FM" over revving it so I hope it will be more complete in FM3.

I'd imagine that if you can damage your gear box changing the gears badly like Dan said, it should be possible to damage the engine too. They said there is a penalty for bad tuning...

You also have to remember that you can upgrade any car to full race car with Rxxx PI like it was said earlier. So I'd imagine there will be a lot of parts to install and stuff to weak, I think adjustable turbo pressure was mentioned some time ago as a new feature.

Quote from Danas :rant

Have you actually played FM2? We know it's not a true simulator but a very fun game to play! It's car porn for 360 as GT series is for Playstation.

As for LCE, can't you buy those cars in the peasant edition? I guess I order the normal version, don't like useless junk and those cars are not that tempting anyway.

Quote from doc_90 :What do you guys think about the new Suzuki Swift Sport?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzuki_Swift#Swift_Sport

I think it's quite neat looking small car. Doesn't try too hard and isn't retro like the new Mini or Fiat 500 posted above, and it's not an Opel either. I could buy one if I had the money and they sold it here.

Quote from Boris Lozac :I don't think that would be "nice", from Alonso OR Ferrari. It's a bit disrespectfull for Massa IMO, the guy is laying there, and they bring Alonso to drive instead of him, it would look like they are trying to replace Massa, you know, Kimi doing a second place, Alonso there... i think all kind of things would go through Massa's head..

I'm pretty sure it will not happen. Bringing someone outside Ferrari would just be a big hassle for the team, new working methods for the driver, new people and everything. Not even to mention possible contract obligations what Ferrari has with their spare drivers or what kind of contract Alonso is with Renault. Plus how would Ferrari feel having a driver from another team racing in the same series driving their car and getting to know it? Not going to happen, if Alonso doesn't already have contract with Ferrari like the Spanish papers would like you to believe.

Quote from J@tko :Passo's the dude holding the camera
Becky's the dudette at front middle
Is Victor the dude with the long hair?
Bob is the dude holding the welsh flag
I assume the guys in the CR T-Shirts are Dru and Adam?


Well d´uh mr obvious, we all know them. How about the rest? Is that old guy next to Adam actually LFSer? :P

Dru (Justin like his mom calls him) is the Jamie Oliver looking guy btw.

Quote from three_jump :I don't really see a difference in getting hit by a spring a part of an exhaust system. Both is dangerous.

As I said, I got no idea what sort of sizes we are talking about here. Besides, mechanical failures and steward not using the black flag properly is different from letting a car with loose wheel on the track.

edit: QS: Just to make it clear, I don't think the penalty was not right and well deserved. But I just think that if it wasn't for Surtees, and the reminder with Massa, they would have escaped the penalty.

Quote from Mustafur :Kimi finished Half the race in France last year with a car spitting out burning metal pieces, that is more dangerous then this imo.

I think I missed the last year French GP, but I imagine a tire is more heavier than small bits of metal and will carry more momentum and force on impact? And did they knew? FIA claim Renault knew exactly what was going on but didn't do anything.

The penalty on Renault is harsh and would not have been given without the accidents we've seen in a week. My heart missed a beat when I saw the wheel finally coming off, and I think the stewards had a similar experience.

Never heard of that lens, shame. I'm not compatible with MF lenses though. Bad eyesight, drunk most of the time etc.

Quote from lukelfs :ahh, kk, ty, but I dont see why its needed..

Probably just to make things quicker because you can upgrade pruction cars all the way up to R classes (race cars). Imagine all the button pressing if you wanted to buy a car and make it a Rxxx racer (as R class also have PI), it's just to speed things up.

Quote from Scrabby :Does the old pug driver has buttons on the wheel to shift because I can't see any movement of changing gears...

First of all it's Ari Vatanen. Sure he is an old fart now, but he did know how to drive.

Secondly, are you blind?

The best way to go is to put a rock or a fish on the accelerator pedal so you can eat more fish when you fish driving your car in your car.

Beware the badger though.

Really honestly. Why would I know what I thought 4 months ago, and why you go after a petty thing like that anyway is beyond me, it probably was just a weird selection on words.
