Nothing to post - Pure racing passion.Slow motion

Racing In Slow Motion IV from Mattzel89 on Vimeo.

 Here are a series of video clips of Matzel89(Vimeo) or RacinginslowMotion youtube channel that describes perfectly, absolute, faultless, pure      the emotion and the feeling of racing cars......

SBS MyWeekly (fake)rumor S1.3 - Eccleston vs Montezemolo (open battlefield)

Some days ago Montezemolo has shown interest in direction of a topic which state that Mugello should held an F1 Grand Prix and he added that it would be a 'dream come true'. I don't think hosting an GP at Mugello could be an advantage for Scuderia Ferrari; look at Monza - they didn't win theyre home race since 2006(Michael Scumacher)......ok...they won(Fernando Alonso) in 2010 with a great battle with  Button...
Anyway, in almost same time Bernie insists that London plans for a race in England capital are not a joke and recently, bank Santander has organised a promotional event in the capital, showcasing a circuit design for the proposed race with McLaren drivers Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton.
Ecclestone said things like "We are getting on with it"   or    "It is no joke, 100% completely no joke."
We have an open "war" between Ferrari president and F1 president, so fasten your seat belts, buy your popcorn and wait  to see which track will be included on a future F1 calendar....

F1 Race Stars - New F1 game or new Kart game or something...

Another F1 game from Codemasters will came up in November for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC and you can keep up to date with all the latest news about F1 RACE STARS by visiting The game trailer reveals how Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel have been transformed into heroes and F1 circuits are converted into over-the-top tracks built for super-charged speed.
F1 Race Stars have real locations like Monaco, Silverstone and the new Circuit of Americas.
F1 RACE STARS -- Over the Top announcement video - ES (720p) from on Vimeo.

 So now Mario Kart F1 can say they have competition. F1 Race Stars can be played in maximum 4 players split screen and 12 players competition in career and producers announced that tracks will have shortcuts; for example Monte Carlo Circuit will feature a jump over the swimming pool.
Codemasters began to do things like that(F1 Online The Game, F1 Race Stars) with their F1 license and this is a good way to promote formula 1 phenomenon. I don't think that's bad like some people say, but i hope all the focus to be on the next F1 2012 game wich will be realeased in September when i want to see much less glitches and much more things on sim side than graphics.

2 days testing at Silverstone

The four drivers that complete these 2 days in Northamptonshire are

- the Finnish -Valtteri Bottas- born on 28 August 1989 in Nastol, had a big advantage because of his powerfull car(Williams) than others(Marussia and HRT). Bottas won
2007 Formula Renault UK Winter Series, 2008 Formula Renault Eurocup, 2008 Formula Renault Northern European Cup, 2009 and 2010 Masters of Formula 3

- the British -Max Alexander Chilton- born on 21 April 1991 in Reigate, Surrey,  was the first who test Marussia car and set the second lap time on 12 July when he had some problems with his machine. Last year drove for the Force India team in the Young Driver test at Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina Circuit

- the Indonesian -Rio Haryanto- born on 22 January 1993 in Surakarta, was third in first day at Silverstone even if he less laps than his Marussia teammate

-the Chinese -- Qinghua Ma- born on 25 December, 1987 in Shanghai had to handle with his poor F1 car and with the fact that he is the first chinese guy who compete in an F1 official event and on second day he couldn't do any laps after the team finished its programme on Wednesday. MA won the China Touring Car Championship's 1600cc class drivers' title in 2011

Photo of the day - Yin and yang for Ma Qing Hua

 The chinese-born driver, Ma Qing Hua, is testing for HRT this week’s young driver session at Silverstone. He's 24 year-old and has competed in various series including Formula Renault, A1 GP, Formula Three and Superleague, and won the Chinese touring car title in 2011. He is from Shanghai and he is the first Chinese-born driver to participate in an official F1 event and he has an yin yang helmet...:)...

3 facts for the future 01 - Spa, Singapore and Webber

1. Minister of Economy of Wallonia(southern region of Belgium) has negotiate a contract extension for the years 2013, 2014 and 2015 where there will be a race at SPA. He said that the negotiations were not difficult, but for a while there was a posibility to alternate with France but didn't happen. It's good to know that historical races are secured (like Spa-Francorchamps), but for now are missing: Istanbul Park and Circuit de Catalunya to be present every year...
2. Singapore had extended their current deal in F1 until 2017 F1 season, being the only night race in Calendar with a feasibility study reviewing that the benefits of continuing with the race are beyond the first agreement(2010)
3. Red Bull have announced that Mark Webber‘s contract has been extended to run until the end of 2013. The Australian revealed that he had been in talks with Ferrari for next season, but said that, in the end, signing for Red Bull was an easy choice and I think he should add that he don't want to be teammate with Fernando Alonso

Framestore presentation+Mclaren Cartoon .Tooned. - Wheel Nuts.Episode 1

 Framestore(an visual effects and animation studio) is partnering with McLaren Group to launced a brand new media company called McLaren Animation.
First production, the cartoon series "Tooned",  made its debut on 8 July and each episode has as main characters Mclaren drivers Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton.
Every epdisode "uses Button and Hamilton’s celebrated camaraderie and urge to race as fertile territory on which to grow comical adventures that test the patience of ‘Professor M’".  Professor M, the guy in the animation in charge of developing F1 car and making main characters compete; is voiced by English TV comedian, actor and television presenter - Alexander Armstrong(born in 1970).
Framestore has only one demand from Mclaren - the result must to be funny and so far i think they had succeed.

F1 prediction - England 2012.Silverstone

This time there will not be a tires lottery, will be a strategy lottery if rain will fall down and last man standing will be the hero, with great advantage for Fernando Alonso who has clear view, with no one standing in his way to splash him...
So top 6 will be something like
1. Schumacher
2. Alonso
3. Vettel vs Webber
4. Raikkonen
5. Hamilton or Massa or Grosjean
Anyway, i think Alonso will end up in the back of first top10 drivers or retired, because he had a amazing continuity with no retirement or big problems(only In Montreal where his tires failed) due a lot of time and and last 3 places of my top will be occupied bye one of  Raikkonen Hamilton Massa Grojean.......with a very nice fight...

CGI London Street Citcut or something alternative

Santander have released a spectacular concept film, featuring McLaren drivers, exploring how an F1 race in London might look.

The CGI film, with an imagined 5.156-kilometre circuit, was produced by expert project architects Populous, who consulted Button and Hamilton extensively on the track’s design. It features a starting grid(The Mall), a near-200mph Santander straight in the run up to Buckingham Palace, and one of the most showy corners - Trafalgar Square into Admiralty Arch all done at night.

Anyway, i think its good to appear new circuits in F1, but there are a lot of circuits that are not in F1 calendar and may worth to be there to challenge a lot the pilot and make a true experience living a Grand Prix, with drivers trully risking their lifes becoming heros and it use to be:)......
A good example of a track that worth to be between the twenty races of the year is Macau(actually an F3 track)

and virtual for better view

F1 prediction - Europe 2012.Valencia

       With very high temperatures announced, Valencia's track will burn the Pirelli tires like this guy making some fries... and F1 cars may also burn like Heidfeld experienced last year at Montmeló.
        Anyway, to not loose any more time, this is final top 6 after Valencia race that i believe will be:
1. Vettel great battle with Lewis, if the german will not escape after first 10 laps...
2. Hamilton
3. Maldonado or Grosjean(if Romain will not cause an accident/incident)
4. Raikkonen
5. Alonso
6. Button 
(may be an accident there in first part of starting grid, that's why first 6 positions are overload or something:).., not that i want to but something will fail with that hot temperatures and overheated brakes)

 and this is final top 6 i wish would be posible:
1. Schumacher
2. Vettel
3. Grosjean
4. Hamilton
5. Raikkonen
6. Massa

6. Nico Rosberg 1:38.623

Who said Massa is not out?

After first 2 or 3 races of 2012 F1 season, a lot of rumors started to spread. Many people have said that this was a lie and Massa is 100 per cent sure of his job at Ferrari, even Luca Montezemolo strongly affirm something like Felipe has nothing to be afraid of when  it comes to his spot in the red Team. But, truth is that all of this is cr@p; Felipe Massa didn't get fired - because he had a well done contract and all the development is centered in Alonso's car and the Brazilian somehow can "eat that" and have compromised to receive his montly/annualy earnings. So Alonso is happy for not having rival inside Ferrari, Massa is happy, everyone is happy.....

I think, as I said some months ago, that Massa may fit better at RedBull and Webber at Ferrari, the last one should be replacing with no big difference - meaning  - actual role of Felipe at red Scuderia .....

SBS Weekly (fake)rumor S1.2 - Vettel .hidden. stabbed Webber for some holes?

After Ferrari, McLaren and Mercedes had raised concerns about the design of RedBull car in Monaco, FIA has declared illegal the holes in the floor of RB8.  Winning the grand prix of  Monaco, made Mark Webber look very confident in himself and his car, not only that, but he equaled the points of his teammate Vettel too (73). So, with some pressure on the dutchman, not necessarily for Monaco race(where he didn't run in Q3) or that Mark is in front of him with 15 points in Driver Standings (by Qualifying),  Vettel may mention to some colleagues of other teams (like Schumacher or/and Button) that his own car has some interesting modifications seeing that Webber began to smoothly accommodate with his F1 car and may have a bigger rival at RedBull than last year.
Now, with flat floor, seems that Webber  returned on his initial behavior in practice at Canadian GP  - medium level and Vettel is back in shape
.....or something like: Felipe, Fernando is faster than you! Can you confirm you understood that message?
...... or maybe its just practice so far at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve

Or maybe is just a strategy of C. Horner and his team, to highlight something obvious(like illegal holes), and hide something not that visible.

*reach beyond imagination can make a good story...

No more black holes..

RedBull is forced to change the design of his  RB8 for next race, because FIA now says that the holes in RedBull's floor are illegal.(after originally was legal.....). So, for Canada we expect to see a nice, plane, smooth, flat , level floor with no black, yellow, green, blue holes.....

F1 prediction - Monaco 2012

Since are six hours left until Grand Prix of Monaco starts,  rustles has already begun to emerge(to be poetic). Some say it will rain, some say that Mercedes AMG are weak in the race, but anyway even with rain drops and with harshly first moments after start - in first lap(not only), i don't think any of these will matter(not even tyre degradation), because in Monaco all that matters is: driver skill(+setup-balance..etc.) and a lot of good luck; that's why Monaco is the best track to run on - in the end this street circuit has some kind of magic for drivers and its audience - winning makes a nice story to tell for the winner.
 Maybe this Sunday we will all assist to a great show with some crashes(muhaha) and crazy fights and maybe final race standing will be:
1. Nico Rosberg will win if he pass Webber(taking advantage of ussualy poor start of the Australian) and with some gap, will repeat the scene from China
2nd,3rd and 4th place may be drastically modified durring the race, because of the impatience of Hamilton and a crash between him and Webber might take them out 
2. Grojean if escapes from "hunters" behind him (Alonso and Schumacher)
3. Schumacher vs Alonso (great fight or something...)
4. Alonso
5. Masa (maybe will tell him again that Alonso is faster, even the spaniard "is blocking him":)
6. If will survive Vettel will fight with Raikkonen and even with Massa and Alonso

SBS Weekly rumor S1.1 - Massa out, Perez in?

Ferrari is putting pressure on Massa and now it's expecting "a change of gear" starting with the Monaco GP. If there is no improvement, Felipe will leave Scuderia Ferrari and his place will be taken by driver Sergio Perez. El checo has already learned a valuable lesson in the second race of the season in Malaysia by letting Alonso win. The mexican should be an excelent number two for Luca di Montezemolo team.

Race Result - 2012 Australia

1. Jenson Button(McLaren) 1hr34'09''565'''
Race was on his hand from start to finish; he managed to get in front of all and mantained a 10 sec distance till the end taking care the slips like nobody

2. Sebastian Vettel(RedBull) +2.1 sec
Good start, some overtakes, had a distance battle with Hamilton and after last pit stop, inexplicable taked 2nd place with safety car entering

3. Lewis Hamilton(McLaren) +4.0 sec
Bad start, frustrating race and too much rubber degradation

4. Mark Webber(RedBull) +4.5 sec
Very bad start, almost like every time, good tire conservation and some fast laps pushing till the end fighting for what would have been his first podium in Melbourne

5. Fernando Alonso(Ferrari) +21.5 sec
 Pulled all what he could from that poor Ferrari F2012, but somehow very nice race, especially the last part of the race with that awseome battle with that unfortunate Maldonado, who crashed few  turns before the finish
