Wow, I go away for a few weeks and come back to a massive Ferrari/McLaren war of words! You're all selfishly caught up in your own little worlds! Will you not think of the children?! And by children I mean HRT, Virgin and Lotus! And more importantly poor old Williamsfan?! His team used to be right up there with McLaren and Ferrari and yet you are making him try and take sides, cruel, very cruel.

Oh and for what its worth, my money was on Alonso for the title, Massa is a great guy but has a back seat driver to guide him everywhere, Lewis is right up there with Alonso, Button is doing a great job but is definitely turning into Chris Martin from Coldplay.

Also to nail my colours to the mast, if I had to choose a team out of the 2, under Todt & Dennis, it would have been McLaren. Now with the new team principles and new attitudes it's a closer call. I guess the way you'd look at it would be you'd want to be in a McLaren for most of your career as they are exactly what modern F1 is all about, slick, professional etc. But for one season at least you'd want to drive for Ferrari as they are what F1 was all about, history, passion etc. Having said that I respect McLaren more than I respect Ferrari, thats changing now Todt is gone mind you. So McLaren for me by a Schumacher nose cone.

No harm in revealing your "true colours or belief matey, as long as you have faith in what you are saying and to then stick to your guns....simple as that really, it's a free world, and everybody is entitled to their opinions...no matter what.  :good:

Great post Stealth, no one ever thinks of poor old Williamsfan  :o  They even try to make me vote for one of their teams.  But little do they know, we'll be back, and we'll make them eat dust (whilst they lap us for the third time)!  Ha ha >:D

Jugirl "fell over the line" comment about JB....LMAO he literally did fall over the line and only just managed that haha

There was me thinking JB wrapped the title up before the last race and then beat his teamate into a distant 3rd in the championship as well.  :D  Of course it was easy he's a top man which is why he is in a top car again this year, :P ask Frank Williams he wanted him back a couple of years ago. :good:

I never underestimate my team, trust me, but I am not going to sit and argue they can win championships any time soon.  We're more likely to be lapped than to get a podium right now and that is a fact as it is happening!

JB is a top, top driver, there is no doubt.  It bugs me that people try to discredit his title because he won so many races in the early part of the season.  He held off an incredible challenge from Vettel and the Red Bull team and was a more than worthy champion.

Out of all the teams I would love to see Frank Williams at the top again, I think he's the only true race team owner with F1 flowing through his veins.  :good:

JB showed what he was made of towards the tail end of last season. :good:

Lets be honest JB was a bit lucky last year, his car was amazing at the start and Vettel had engine trouble all year. It would have so been a different story if Renault had a better engine for Vettel.
McLaren will be worried about there start though lets be honest though compared to last year its amazing haha. They only just pipped Ferrari to third last year because they were flogging a dead horse, Ferrari used brains and went for this years development which is seeing them lead in both championships and will continue to do so right up until Abu Dhabi:D
Another disappointing, though not from my point of view, season for lewis and Mclaren HAHA :D
