Thanks Mafia 8) May I take this opportunity to say thanks to you for all your work on the race threads this year, much appreciated, I am sure many of the other regulars agree :clap: :yay: :dance: :clap:


I hope we get a good race, we usually do here. It's almost a shame the title is wrapped up as that adds to the excitement I always think, but no matter we should have a race worth watching anyway. Bring it on!! :yay: :yay:

This track has a long straith. At this track best speed is important and because of that generally ferrari was good here. İn new spec engines mercedes engine installed cars make best speeds. especially mercedes factory team has very good best speed. They can do here a podium finish if they can get a good car set up.

Yeah, but I never understood the obsession with the star and the arrow. Still, I live with someone with OCD so I'm accustomed to inexplicable behaviours.

If Jerste could ask for pink bottoms, what about hammocks and palm trees?

Image

We STILL demand more hammocks! But no. Arrows and stars, that's all we got after so many years.

Let's occupy Grand Prix. I tell you, this seems a mafia.

Comrades: 99% of the GP threads are arrow and star threads! What about the other 1%? Don't we yearn and ache and feel? Aren't hammocks human beings?

More important: arrow and star is Illuminati code for Sickle and Hammer. It's common knowledge that MJ12 uses arrows and stars in the seal of the Union as a symbol of the Pyramid.

Coincidence? I don't think so. Bottom right corner: watch the arrows and stars! And in the center... Yes! The sickle and hammer cleverly disguised! I bet you've never noticed!
Image

To sum up:

1. more hammocks = more fairness.
2. more pink underwear = more gays

Hammocks of the world, unite!

If the icons I include in my post are grunting, can I call them smilies? Should I call them grunties?

If a moderator has an extreme point of view, can I call him moderator? Should I cal him extremator?

Is the symbol of chaos a star with arrows?

I thought that was a symbol for an explosion. Is this an extreme point of view?

Hmmm! interesting, since we are on the subject of chaos, would'nt that symbol suits perfactly to represent Modern GP's? Lewis and felipe are doing their bit to make sure there is chaos all the time on track! Schumacher still in the hunt for petrov and Koba almost every race, Trulli do not let any chance to make the mess even messier. this is an excellent way to start Gp thread. Image who here would like to see just one icon instead of saperate star and arrow(s???)
