That should be an awesome car. Looks better as a convert than the coupe. Kinda reminds me of an Audi R8 spyder only not ugly...

I read somewhere that an original bad boy Mclaren F1 sold for more than $5.5million.


What's wrong, Richie, were you run over by a red italian car as a young adult????

I got sick of Ferrari's bullshit during the Schumacher years. And, how they treat the "2nd" driver. I see, the same crap has already started this year in Mebourne. Massa was faster than wee whiney fernando and got screwed for doing it. And, let's not forget the extra money and considerationin rule changes they get from the FIA. They are spoiled little kids, that threaten to take their ball and go home every time they don't get their way. Look how they abandoned Lemans after getting their ass kicked by the GT40 and 917.

Massa faster in practice and qualifying again this weekend over wee whiney Alonso this weekend in Sapang. Wanna bet on who will end up in front for the race?

dish network doesn't carry nbc sports HD. I haven't watched much this year. They played the first two races (raceday coverage) on one of the spanish stations in chicago.

I heard alonso crashed out and weber and vettel had quite the adventure.

The highlight of the race was when Hamilton pulled into the McLaren pits for a tire change with his mercedes!

I heard he said that he pulled a "jenson button." referring to button doing the same thing (but not as funny) last year.

V ettel was definitely wrong in doing his pass, as Webber was told to turn his engine down. I saw Seb's first F1 race in Indy for BMW. And, have always been impressed with him. This will hurt his image for a long time. It is now obvious, that Red Bull was going to let Webber win and I respect that. The Ferrari policy of only letting the #1 driver win is disgusting. Rosberg really wanted past Hamilton in the Mercedes was not allowed to do it. Not surprising, when you remember were Ross Brawn came from.

You always welcome to come here and to watch a race.

it's the same with ducati in motorcycle racing.

And it's the nature of the business ($$$$$$) of racing.

trustme, if ferrari didn't mean hundreds of millions of dollars for motorsports and Bernie's pocket, he wouldn't cut them any slack. but the fandom behind ferrari is huge.

look at ferrari park in dubai, and the tifosi at monza. It's like nascar in the south.




I love this. BAHAHAHAHAHAHA
