OMG I can't wait. That Schumi piece looks like it'll be fun.

Yeh! Its errr physics?? :huh:

So whats this "one of its kind" Maserati that Tom drives? Can I assume MC Hammer?
 
yeah its the birdcage he drove it on the goodwood speed festival this year

possible spoiler:

in TG magazine he even wrote he stalled it at the start
 
ok, so why the fuck are they putting vicki to compete with schumacher?????? She is the worst driver on the show, except for Tom but he doesnt do any hardcore racing.

Cause its likely in schumacher's contract that he has to win any promotional "race", therefore, put someone out there that might not have a chance at keeping up with him to get said promotion. I wouldn't put it past ferrari.

Calm down - I highly doubt it's a normal race - what would be the point? The clips at the start of episode one showed Schumacher in what looked like a fuel economy car, so my guess is VBH and MS compete in a fuel economy competition.

i wasnt getting angry, its just that they chose her to do the M5 bit which Plato would have done a lot better and now this. They should just leave the racing stuff to Tiff and Plato.
 
idiots

idiots

What is wrong with everyone here? I feel compelled to tell you all right now that you are ALL ignorant. You ALL complain about Vicki, but none of you can out-drive her. She is an accomplished racer, and that is what makes her unique. Vicki does many of the races because she has the knowledge and the skill.

You guys can have your opinions about how she isn't the presenter you wished she were. However, her racing skill outshines every kid on this board. Do you guys honestly believe BMW would allow a driver of lower caliber than Vicki to race alongside a multimillion dollar machine?!

I've let out my little rant, so you boys and girls can go back to your little party. By the way, I noticed earlier people commented about her figure. You people are all caught up in Hollywood glam because the real world doesn't all have stick figure women.

So let me reiterate for the slow kids on this board: You kids are ignorant at BEST.

I think I read that bit too quickly. Could you type it again, and a bit slower this time. :p

Not everyone here is ignorant though. I have no problem with her driving. She's certainly a much better driver than I am. Don't make the mistake of judging everyone from a few posts. And they tend to be from the same people all the time.

:lol: Vicky, sorry, us guys can be critical of how a woman drives. We'r also critical about other things about you like your figure but believe me in all truth, your a very nice girl :blush:

Your right anyway, BMW wouldnt let some sub-standard driver get behind the wheel and drive alongside an F1 car. Thats why they chose you. We do all have tremendous respect for you as a driver, its just that its hard comparing you to Tiff when he's soo talented!

None of the Fifth Gear presenters would have a chance in a race against Schumacher!
He is a very, very, very good driver, maybe the best driver in the world. Even though Tiff and Jason are racing drivers too, there's no way they would beat MS. Compared to him they're mediocre at best.

And BTW, I'm not only saying this because I'm German. I'm neither a big fan of Schumacher nor do I care about F1. It's a fact.

Well you are right about one thing, it isnt a normal race. but the car aint an economy car:

Vicki is a good driver. BUT! she is easily out of her league when it comes to Tiff or Plato.
