F1 Causes international argument! [29 Aug 2006|07:03pm]

Cyprus is making an official complaint to motor sport's world governing body over what it calls a political "trick" at the Turkish Grand Prix.
The Turkish Cypriot leader, Mehmet Ali Talat, presented the Formula One trophy at the televised event in Istanbul.

However, he was introduced as president of the Turkish Cypriot "state" - which is only recognised by Turkey.

Cyprus has been split since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded the north of the island after a Greek-inspired coup.

"The Cypriot government will denounce this unacceptable and provocative piece of theatre," Cyprus government spokesman Christodoulos Pashardis told reporters after the Grand Prix award ceremony.

I have very mixed feelings right now...

One of my favourite drivers, Alex Wurz, is finally returning to F1 as a race driver and will get a race seat that i think he thoroughly deserves! But at the same time he is replacing Mark Webber, who is also one of my favs and as an Aussie is a sentemental favourite. I am so over the moon that Alex will race next year but i also hope this means that Mark will get either a Renault or McLaren drive which I think he deserves.

I very rarely use the word disappointed when referring to someone, but I was very disappointed at what Michael Schumacher did Saturday afternoon.

For the last few years he has kept his nose relatively clean. The events of Adelaide 1994, Silverstone 1995, Jerez 1997, Austria 2000 (deliberately driving his damaged car on to the racing line to try and stop the race) Austria 2002 and Indianapolis 2002 had faded into history as he Formula one career is drawing to a close. But all that has come back after he, in my opinion, made almost no effort to turn the car around the second to last corner at the end of qualifying thus giving himself pole.

He had plenty of space to turn, plenty of opportunity to get reverse or even just floor it to get the back around. The clenched fist in the car (and one or two in the garage) signalled he was not to bothered about what had happened. Formula one engines are fickle things but if they can sit on the starting grid for upwards of 30 seconds without stalling surly they can keep running after a driver had run wide.

What has come as a surprise to me is the reaction from the pit lane. I forget how many drivers ITV interviewed but they all indicated quite obviously that they thought it was deliberate. Keke Rosberg was the most outspoken while his son, Nico looked disappointed when he said he hoped it wasn’t deliberate.

It ended up a good race though. The high shot of Kimi Raikkonen walking towards the tunnel as the safety car passed with the pack behind before the camera shot panned out into the harbour was really good. All that was needed was a theme tune and credits to go up the screen!

So, what do we all think of the top teams following Ferrari's 'flexi-wing' lead?

Oh lord what a race!

Montoya spinning at the last corner of the WARM-UP LAP!!!! ROFL!

It’s a shame the Red Bull and the STR crashes were not caught by the camera as they were spectacular (The STR put a nice hole in the grass after turn 2) but a least we saw Michael Schumacher’s incident with the wall. Was I the only one feeling sorry for him as he suddenly realised he was lost in the Toyota garage?

You gotta feel sorry for pole man Jenson Button. He went backwards all through the race and came to a stop about 70 yards from the chequered flag after his Honda blew up.

Can someone possibly help me? I'm an amateur F1 statician and was wondering in 2006 what to do about BMW Sauber. Do i count their results towards Sauber's history or towards a new BMW team? I am so confused! Please help!

Huge news about Alonso going 2 McLaren! I wonder if it will be Juan Pablo or Kimi leaving and where will they be going? I reckon one of them will got to Ferrari and Michael will either retire or head off to Red Bull or McLaren....i doubt though that Michael will want to race alongside Fernando coz that could be risky...although i reckon he would cream him
