Nothing to post - Pure racing passion.Slow motion

Racing In Slow Motion IV from Mattzel89 on Vimeo.

 Here are a series of video clips of Matzel89(Vimeo) or RacinginslowMotion youtube channel that describes perfectly, absolute, faultless, pure      the emotion and the feeling of racing cars......
Next - the other episodes of this series

SBS MyWeekly (fake)rumor S1.3 - Eccleston vs Montezemolo (open battlefield)

Some days ago Montezemolo has shown interest in direction of a topic which state that Mugello should held an F1 Grand Prix and he added that it would be a 'dream come true'. I don't think hosting an GP at Mugello could be an advantage for Scuderia Ferrari; look at Monza - they didn't win theyre home race since 2006(Michael Scumacher)......ok...they won(Fernando Alonso) in 2010 with a great battle with  Button...
Anyway, in almost same time Bernie insists that London plans for a race in England capital are not a joke and recently, bank Santander has organised a promotional event in the capital, showcasing a circuit design for the proposed race with McLaren drivers Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton.
Ecclestone said things like "We are getting on with it"   or    "It is no joke, 100% completely no joke."
We have an open "war" between Ferrari president and F1 president, so fasten your seat belts, buy your popcorn and wait  to see which track will be included on a future F1 calendar....

F1 Race Stars - New F1 game or new Kart game or something...

Another F1 game from Codemasters will came up in November for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC and you can keep up to date with all the latest news about F1 RACE STARS by visiting The game trailer reveals how Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel have been transformed into heroes and F1 circuits are converted into over-the-top tracks built for super-charged speed.
F1 Race Stars have real locations like Monaco, Silverstone and the new Circuit of Americas.
F1 RACE STARS -- Over the Top announcement video - ES (720p) from on Vimeo.

 So now Mario Kart F1 can say they have competition. F1 Race Stars can be played in maximum 4 players split screen and 12 players competition in career and producers announced that tracks will have shortcuts; for example Monte Carlo Circuit will feature a jump over the swimming pool.
Codemasters began to do things like that(F1 Online The Game, F1 Race Stars) with their F1 license and this is a good way to promote formula 1 phenomenon. I don't think that's bad like some people say, but i hope all the focus to be on the next F1 2012 game wich will be realeased in September when i want to see much less glitches and much more things on sim side than graphics.

The four drivers that complete these 2 days in Northamptonshire are

- the Finnish -Valtteri Bottas- born on 28 August 1989 in Nastol, had a big advantage because of his powerfull car(Williams) than others(Marussia and HRT). Bottas won

Last year drove for the Force India team in the Young Driver test at Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina Circuit

- the Indonesian -Rio Haryanto- born on 22 January 1993 in Surakarta, was third in first day at Silverstone even if he less laps than his Marussia teammate

-the Chinese -- Qinghua Ma- born on 25 December, 1987 in Shanghai had to handle with his poor F1 car and with the fact that he is the first chinese guy who compete in an F1 official event and on second day he couldn't do any laps after the team finished its programme on Wednesday.

Photo of the day - Yin and yang for Ma Qing Hua

 The chinese-born driver, Ma Qing Hua, is testing for HRT this week’s young driver session at Silverstone. He's 24 year-old and has competed in various series including Formula Renault, A1 GP, Formula Three and Superleague, and won the Chinese touring car title in 2011. He is from Shanghai and he is the first Chinese-born driver to participate in an official F1 event and he has an yin yang helmet...:)...

3 facts for the future 01 - Spa, Singapore and Webber

1. Minister of Economy of Wallonia(southern region of Belgium) has negotiate a contract extension for the years 2013, 2014 and 2015 where there will be a race at SPA. He said that the negotiations were not difficult, but for a while there was a posibility to alternate with France but didn't happen. It's good to know that historical races are secured (like Spa-Francorchamps), but for now are missing: Istanbul Park and Circuit de Catalunya to be present every year...
2. Singapore had extended their current deal in F1 until 2017 F1 season, being the only night race in Calendar with a feasibility study reviewing that the benefits of continuing with the race are beyond the first agreement(2010)
3. Red Bull have announced that Mark Webber‘s contract has been extended to run until the end of 2013. The Australian revealed that he had been in talks with Ferrari for next season, but said that, in the end, signing for Red Bull was an easy choice and I think he should add that he don't want to be teammate with Fernando Alonso

Framestore presentation+Mclaren Cartoon .Tooned. - Wheel Nuts.Episode 1

 Framestore(an visual effects and animation studio) is partnering with McLaren Group to launced a brand new media company called McLaren Animation.
First production, the cartoon series "Tooned",  made its debut on 8 July and each episode has as main characters Mclaren drivers Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton.
Every epdisode "uses Button and Hamilton’s celebrated camaraderie and urge to race as fertile territory on which to grow comical adventures that test the patience of ‘Professor M’".  Professor M, the guy in the animation in charge of developing F1 car and making main characters compete; is voiced by English TV comedian, actor and television presenter - Alexander Armstrong(born in 1970).
Framestore has only one demand from Mclaren - the result must to be funny and so far i think they had succeed.

F1 prediction - England 2012.Silverstone

This time there will not be a tires lottery, will be a strategy lottery if rain will fall down and last man standing will be the hero, with great advantage for Fernando Alonso who has clear view, with no one standing in his way to splash him...
So top 6 will be something like
1. Schumacher
2. Alonso
3. Vettel vs Webber
4. Raikkonen
5. Hamilton or Massa or Grosjean
Anyway, i think Alonso will end up in the back of first top10 drivers or retired, because he had a amazing continuity with no retirement or big problems(only In Montreal where his tires failed) due a lot of time and and last 3 places of my top will be occupied bye one of  Raikkonen Hamilton Massa Grojean.......with a very nice fight...
