Maybe something to do with the trillion Spanish Alonso fans that attend? ;)


During the Schumi era there were two races in Germany. Somehow it has to do with the nationality of the current champ when the races are renegotiated.



Looks like it will be going back to twice in Germany pretty soon then. :|

True. Then again, both the Hockeyhome and NewBurgerRing circuits are still superior to this piece of crap tarmac called the Valencia 'street' circuit. :loser: :loser:

Question of the day : Why do they call it Bahrain when it hardly ever rains there? :reallyevil:

I don't know for me race wasn't that bad I would rate it 5/10 or 6/10 it certainly was best race so far in Valencia. Maybe problem is we saw Valencia just after Montreal so we expected something in that fashion.
There was overtaking in the midfield and some close racing so I wouldn't call complete write-off.
Track looks like crap but I doubt Valencia has money like Singapore or Abu Dhabi to make improvements every year.
But race in Iowa... :beer: :thumbs:
Listen, it was hard enough to drive those heavy old cars back then under normal circumstances, but with a crazed monkey clawing you at the same time, it becomes nearly impossible! http://www.timflock.com/jocko.htm

In Malay, 'bah' means 'flood'. I doubt that applies to Bahrain. :rotflmao:

AP wrote:... The race in Valencia is named the "European GP" as was the one at Nürburgring (Hockenheim was the German GP). It seems the European GP indicates a kind of a "Joker" GP that can be located anywhere in Europe. So we may be spared a second Bahrain GP unless Bernie and Co. come up with a different naming convention.


So all they've got to do is call the second Bahrain GP the Middle Eastern GP.
The metaphorical inuendo flows like chalk.

Interesting article on why McLaren suffered a lack of pace around Borelencia.
