    2012 Formula 1 Gran Premio de Espa?a Santander

    I love Frank Williams, his straight talking is such a rarity in such a PR orientated sport. "When asked if Maldonado was only at Williams in the first place because of money, Williams said: "Yeah, he was to some extent. I'm not denying that. But if we thought he'd been a wanker, he wouldn't...

    2012 F1 Dreamteam

    I cunningly decided to move Maldonado on and replace him with Mr Schumacher, go me! I'm glad I got rid of the Red Bull before the price went down, 36,000,000 was really over valued. Having said that, it's a damn shame I decided to replace it with another McLaren given that it seems the team are...

    Ownership Verified: Viper's 2008 Dodge Viper SRT-10 (A 17+ Year Dream Come True!)

    Until I read your comment I thought your Viper had the noisiest fuel pump in the known universe! Awesome car, I wasn't too sure about the blue but it looks epic in the sunshine, have fun with it.

    2012 Formula 1 Season Thread

    What do people think about the Williams car this year? 1 race fluke or a genuinely fast car. I'm really hoping the latter but fear that may not be the case. It's not that I don't like the other mid-field teams, I'd just much rather Williams succeeds than they do. Especially Torro Rosso, they're...

    2012 Formula 1 Qantas Australian Grand Prix

    I'm so glad that the dominance we all got used to over the 2010/11 seasons appears to be at an end. I have to say that although Button was doing great things, the bulk of my attentions were on Maldonado, it was such a shame that he crashed out when he did. I would dearly love to see Williams...

    Using film, I think I might have done it wrong somehow...

    How did you manage that? 35mm film has always been pretty resilient when I've used it, maybe you have some kind of super-man strength. What film is that by the way?

    Until the bodywork trenches get dramatically banned mid-season.

    Do you know what they called it? I'd like to watch it but can't seem to find it anywhere.

    2012 Car Launches and Testing Thread

    How long has it been since an unexpected race win from a car lower down in the pack, was it actually Vettel's win in the Torro Rosso? I can't recall how it happened but it would be great to see something similar from a mid-pack team. Is it possible with some sort of mid-season super update or is...

    Nikon D800/D800e announced

    Eh? I'd say that was pretty impressive for ISO 12800 shots with large quantities of detail in the shadows. The only thing I wonder is why the D700 shot has so much more 'pop', the colours in the D800 example look pretty muted.

    I thought Charlie Whiting agreed that all the exhausts were legal some time ago. Presumably like everything it will be declared legal and then banned soon after.

    Your Camera Equipment

    I was considering getting an 80-200 AF-D some time ago, I ended up with a 70-200 VR that wasn't pretty cosmetically but worked fine. I'd go with that every time over a new 80-200 purely for AF speed (I seem to remember reports of the 80-200 AF-D being slow). That or you can try and pick up an...

    Wow, that's an incredible price. They are still selling here privately for about ?1200 with a few thousands actuations.

    2012 F1 Dreamteam

    I may as well give it a shot. Forced Restart Alonso, Raikkonen, Hulkenberg and Kovalainen. Red Bull, McLaren, Lotus, Force India. I have literally no idea what I'm doing. I thought if I get a nice mixture of drivers and cars it may all come together. Chaos theory applied to Formula 1? Who...
