Ohhhhh! Canada. One of the best comebacks ever. From last to first place and to win it on the last lap against Vettel. Jenson was absolutely brilliant that day. I have a copy on my PC that I watch from time to time.

42 days and counting.

PS. Go Mclaren, Go Button!

Yeah I missed Canada the first time around, had DVR set to record, and had that 2 hour or so delay and missed it. Might be the best race of the year. It was for Jenson.

I'm glad to see that there are some F1 fans over the sea ...as F1 didn't make a good job for popularity moving races to Asia (my opinion).
New McLaren is a beautiful car especially compared to new Caterham...

Default Shamless plug...

...but I'm selling my FGX with Rabbit conversion. Check out the for sale section.
FGX Rabbit - ARTR + Options
Good deal IMO, for someone looking to get into F1..

What a coincidence! This real F1 race starts on the same week as the 2012 ROAR Carpet Nationals where there will be 1/10 scale F1 races going on.

Tickets for Silverstone and Monza is ordered here.
Take wife to Silverstone with Goodwood festival of speed the weekend before and boys trip to Monza. Ferrari rental car also in Italy...

Was at Silverstone last year, great trip! We managed to get chased off Top Gear test track. we got away with it because we where tourists from Norway.

Go Jenson and McLaren!

The stepped nose on the new cars is horrible looking! It looks like something fell on the front of the car.

I know, 3 of the 4 news cars have the stepped nose. The Caterham also has it. We'll see what Red Bull has to offer on Monday.
