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

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 .....

Nothing to post - with no experience...

..i want more swearing in 2012..

At Fuji GP in 2007 Webber get hit by Vettel, because Hamilton was too aggressive and Mark had to brake suddenly to avoid overtaking him under the safety car.

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.....
