The Official 2012 F1 Thread. Spoilers possible!
 
Will Bernie be a spoiler?

Will the Texan's beat him at his game?

Will the IceMan returneth?

Will Hamilton rock or roll?

Will Vettel win every pole and every race?

Will the Pole have feeling and drive?

Will Michael stay or should he go?

If he goes, can we have our favorite Canadian back?

Will we get a political education with our racing?

Will we care?

Will Ferrari be back in the hunt?

Now that India has a race, will Jaguar return to the grid?

Can Sir Frank have just one more stellar season?

Should we be making plans for an Austin pilgrimage?

Is the economy really having an impact on F1?

Will there be more overtaking, by gimmick or talent?

These and many more issues will be discussed, debated and rehashed.

One of my wishes for 2012: Can they find a decent world feed director race in and race out? I *really* hate when they cut away from the race to focus on some guy staring at a computer monitor. If said guy was doing something, like shaking his hands at the monitor or anxiously rubbing his temples whilst inspecting data, I could see showing him, but usually it is a dude staring at a computer monitor. Maybe with a clipboard nearby.

Though seeing Mr Bean when Hamilton and Massa came together was priceless (Abu Dhabi was it?). His classic :eek1 look said it all.

USF1 is making a comeback, right? :evil

Only two things needed...a pen and money.

Perhaps the first big news of 2012. Thank FreeTheBeasst for finding this.

I guess the Iceman finally gave up on his pipe dream of a top drive realizing that nearly any F1 seat is better than none at all. Can a Finn even pronounce 'yaaahoooo' or git'r'dun?

I predict another forgettable year at LRGP after the initial buzz of 6 world champions in the field and everyone realizes that the only reason Kimi won a driver's championship was because he was lucky enough to land into the seat and the team infrastructure that Schumacher/Brawn/Todt/Byrne created. Ferrari was on autopilot and it was his championship to lose.

SPOILER: Kimi back to F1...? Assume the LOTUS position
 
Is it true he is bringing a special new telemetry system from WRC with him, to the Lotus F1 team...? :deal

Kimi: "Hey... Kaj...?! Which way do we turn outta pit lane...?!" :huh

Navigator (tucked away in the R31 nose cone): "Keep left out of pit exit, flat out 400m to minus five right over crest... watch out for Lewis spinning... don't cut!" :eek1

:clap I think that is the most animated I've seen Kimi.

F1 just got a little more boring. For a Finn with talent and a sense of humor . . .

I know this is 2013 news
 
But check out the headline......NJ GP?

Bernie gives the Texans another week. Which oddly enough, brings us to the partners meeting on 12/7.

Kimi could put a tornado to sleep.

Until he's in a F1 car.

Hate him for poaching Lewis Hamilton’s drivers’ title or love him for his bottomless Scandinavian cool, 2007 world champion Kimi Räikkönen is back in Formula One, after signing a two-year deal with Lotus Renault. It’s time for embarrassingly cool moments at Grands Prix yet again, like his classic line about a pre-race bowel movement at the 2006 Brazilian Grand Prix.

Räikkönen, driving his last race for McLaren, had just missed the speech given by Pelé to commemorate Michael Schumacher, who was about to battle Fernando Alonso for the world title in what was then expected to be Schumacher’s last race. “

Kimi is a drunk, disco wanker has been. NASCAR is waiting.

LOL...I remember that. It is good to take care of business before you are stuck in the car for a couple of hours. That could get uncomfortable.
