Anyone seen "Rush" yet? I just saw it a few hours ago and it was a different movie compared to what I thought it was going to be. I don't know shit about F1, NASCAR or any other form of professional motorsport, past or present. I honestly didn't know what to expect going into this movie, other than the vague reviews I read in newspapers.

I think the characters could have been developed more. I understand why Ron Howard portrayed the characters the way that he did, because on Top Gear he stated that he "wanted to make a good movie for audiences without alienating F1 fans".

Don't get me wrong, C. Helmsworth made a good Hunt and D. Bruhl made a good Lauda, but I didn't get a very good idea of who the real drivers were outside of the vague research I did about the movie beforehand.

Either way, I'd recommend the movie to anyone that knows shit about F1, and even if you're like me, watch it.

Haven't seen it yet cuz there is no cinema anywhere near here...gonna see it once it comes out on DVD or something like that...but other than that yeah..it should be a good movie but a few things about it aren't really as true as portrayed...for example. They made it that way so it's more appealing to a wider audience but nonetheless it should be a good movie...what's interesting is that even though the story about Hunt's and Lauda's rivalry is very interesting, it's not the most fascinating from the F1 world. There are many more stories which should be told. What i would recommend though is the movie "Senna"

Have you guys heard of Michael Schumacher's skiing accident? he fell and hit his head on a stone, luckily he had a helmet, otherwise he wouldn't be alive now. He's still in an induced coma and this was the latest update on the situation

Latest news regarding Schumacher is that the doctors are trying to get him out of the induced coma. This started already at the end of January, let's just hope he gets out of it in a decent way without too many personality changes from the induced coma.

Tony Stewart. I think you might need to get a good lawyer.

Why? The guy ran out in the middle of the track into oncoming traffic during a race. Darwin Award much.

As far as it has been reported so far and having seen some fuzzy footage there are two ways it can be viewed. The guy was pretty stupid walking down the track, but it is not unheard of in American motorsport. Putting yourself there is asking for trouble....but, Tony Stewart can be heard revving up as he passed, presumably trying to scare the guy, but this seems to have caused the car to powerslide and then the rear tyre caught him. It is being reported in this country as though Tony Stewart has some form when it comes to anger management issues and seems to be aiming the blame in one direction.

At this point they aren't even likely to press charges. If they do, his lawyer would only need to prove that he didn't intend to run him over. It's a far easier case for the defense in this situation since the prosecution would have to convince the jury that Stewart is responsible for vehicular manslaughter. Intent is incredibly difficult to prove.

Has anyone seen the japanese F1 race earlier today? chaotic, but interesting race, overshadowed by the incident at the end. F1 hasn't had a fatality since Senna 1994 but as things stand it doesn't look very rosy for Jules. Hope he pulls through

Anybody watching Paris-Dakar(or should I say Buenos Aires- Chile-Bolivia-Rosario-Buenos Aires) rally? I like when they start organize it in S America as traditional ... Paris-Dakar
I don't see it come back in Europe in next 20 years ... S America, even N America, Ausie has great places to offer even Chinese deserts and safty in China is 100%

Yes it's a great event, always interesting and the time of the year they've chosen for it is great imho because there is basically no other motorsport in january and february. To be honest i don't care much about the venue but the name says Paris-Dakar....so.....yeah...

Looking forward to the new F1 season now. Pre season testing hasn't really given anything away yet (apart from how far behind McLaren Honda are). Ferrari are looking better, even Lotus have improved. Think Mercedes are not running at full speed so that they don't show how quick they will be.

Enjoyed last season. Hope this one will bring more variety of race winners. Williams main competition for Mercedes?

Yeah i agree mostly (though there's one more test-this thursday to sunday), just think that we won't see any more variety in terms of race winners...maybe even less than last year, haha. I really don't see anyone challenging the mercs, as their dominance is more than obvious in the tests so far (even though the time sheets don't suggest it at first look), because they have been running with a 100% full tank and prime tyres and working on reliability and fine tuning such as how to get the new tyres in the optimal operating temperature range etc...

Ladies and gentlemen, here we have a nice example of what i was talking about...the time sheets so far, after day 2 of the final test in barcelona



just to clarify for those who don't know: soft tyres=prime compound on this track, super-soft=option (and the options should theoretically be around a second to one and a half seconds a lap quicker than the primes...)

and i'll just leave another quote here "Red Bull boss Christian Horner to SSNHQ's Rachel Brookes: "Looking at that Mercedes time is a little depressing. Hopefully they're not running around with 80 kilos of fuel to do that."

yeah....i don't think this season will be very exciting or unpredictable
