    The guy with the mike told the driver to "code off" stop as "9".

    Actually this came up in UPS discussions a few months ago (2-19) Too bad they couldn't get Red Bull instead.

    Thanks, I figured it would when UPS spends millions of dollars on sponsorship of a race team......

    I somewhat follow formula one, that Sebastian guy is making history being that he's the youngest winner in formula one history. I also like the indy car series, both are a lot more interesting than NASCAR.

    Oh and what a bad choice for UPS, sponsoring Ferrari? They haven't been a contending race team for the past couple years. That red bull team sprung up out of nowhere and is winning everything. Sebastian is on the red bull team, that could have a lot to do with them winning. What engine do they use? I think it's the Peugeot Citroen car engines?

    They are a Renault F1 specific engine. You won't find that motor in a Peugeot. Lol Renault also powers 3 other teams. These cars and engines are of the highest technology available and the most costly of any motorsport. I imagine UPS is not on the Red Bull cars because they are just too expensive for them.

    Engine configuration will be changing again soon, so we get to see some more spectacular failures. At that time we'll see who comes up with the best engine and everything is reset. Maybe Bernie Eccelstone will be in prison by then.

    He is a little tyrant mother. It should be interesting to have turbos back on these engines.

    Yea I realized that shorty after my post. I would think that Ferrari would be the most expensive team to sponsor honestly. They have a lot more f1 history and wins. Oh and I know that red bull focuses a lot on there down force technology also

    I see you follow as closely as I do. No more drama now in the Red Bull camp except for who replaces Webber. Perhaps Massa?

    Ferrari may have more history but Red Bull has more money and are not shy about spending it. Vettel is a great driver but that team and resources helped put him at the top.

    I Vettel's defense, he was no slouch on the Toro Rosso team with a Ferarri engine.

    Put Kimi in that Red Bull car and I'm sure he could give vettel a run for his money.

    Ah! Yes!! Not too shabby for a few years off. Think he's third in the standings now. "leave me alone, I know what I'm doing."

    They don't call him the Iceman for nothing.

    Formula 1 is whoever takes the lead the first turn wins unless something breaks down.

    Not always. Romain Grosjean comes to mind as an example, though I can't recall a pole position for him. Plus catastrophic pit snafus.

    Somepeoplecallmethestig Are you not amused?

    No one spends more then Ferrari, they are to F1 what the NY Yankees are to baseball.
