enrico. i didnt mention vettel as first of all, YOU mentioned lulu, and then ROB came on and mentioned flip and ferdi! savy? but now you mention it, seb did a rather remarkable job in brazil last year, fighting a damaged and down on power car, through the field to clinch the title.
and yes, i do like motogp, but as i never liked bikes, per se, i know little about them, but i like to watch the racing

".... yes, rossi rode an incredible race, but to compare lulu to him is just downright ridiculous! rossi is a 9 times wdc, and lulu is a ????? wdc? ONE!"

Really? Did you have too much drink last night and your brain is still under the influence? What kind of ridiculous comparison is that?

Using your same logic (or lack off), I would say Rossi is a 9 time WDC and Michael Shumacher is a ????? wdc? SEVEN! Therefore, Rossi is a better F1 racer compared to Schumy. Does that make sense to you?

Do you think Rossi in an F1 car will beat Massa or Button, never mind the likes of Alonso, Hamilton or Vettel? Just as I don't think Hamilton or any other top F1 driver can beat Rossi in GP.

Talking about comparing oranges and apples. How ridiculous! Your hatress towards Hamilton is becoming an obsession and getting the better of you. Get yourself checked at the nearest hospital!
Very disapointing from someone who claim to have been watching F1 since the 70s.

ben. i think that it is you who is on the booze. why not read the comments in context? rossi and lulu were compared as alikes. and i pointed out that such a comparison was ridiculous, as it was. rossi is a 9wdc, is older, and has had two lean years, so is "coming back". whereas lulu is much younger, still "at the top" :D, and has one wdc, despite trying for 4 years. if you cannot spot the difference, then i am sorry for you.
and i was not mentioning rossi in an f1 car either. each must be compared in their respective categories.
i dont know what "hatress" is, but i am glad that i dont suffer from it!
finally, where have i claimed that i have followed f1 since the 70's? but i HAVE been following it since the 50's. and that seems to be well before you were born.

Richard,
I read your comments carefully, including your subsequent responses to EnRiCo47. Thank you for clarifying what you meant in your comments.
But I still believe there seems to be something wrong with your reasoning, with your thinking. How can you be sitting in front of your computer, probably in a continent different than mine, and tell the world that you started watching F1 before I was born. Do you know me? Do you think it's enough to claim to have been around F1 since the 50s for it to be true? You may be right, just as you may be wrong! Looks like you guess people's age by when they started watching F1 as if F1 was a benchmark.
If I concede that you started watching F1 20 years before I did, what difference does it make? Since when has anteriority meant superiority?
Let's enjoy the show while we can still breathe.
Peace!

ben. i dont know where you come from, but i am european, so is that a different continent to you?
but i am too old to try and make up an identity for myself.
and as i seem to be one of the oldest on this forum, and you mentioned 70's, it seemed logical to assume that maybe that is when you started to watch f1? it is interesting that there are a number of ldies on this site, and they generally are the most knowledgable and interesting posters with whom to have a serious debate, without all the abuse and aggro.
and yes, there are also a number of good younger posters but they, like me, seem to attract the attacks by fanboys, who dont like to hear anything against their idol.
glad to see you got the point that i was making

@pole position...
Yeah have to agree, I was surprised also to see both Mercs noses at the front, that's what the sport needs more close action up front. I have to admit I am a real Nico fan, and now Lewis has been added to the mix at Merc, hope the team have more great competitive Sunday afternoons like that...

Thanks for the advice, Junka. I have given up and I now look forward to the coming weekend race mostly to discover just how McLaren will back up all the noise they have been making lately. I bet you if they beat Mercedes this Sunday, the celebration will be so wild you would think they have just won the world championship.
Let's wait and see.

Bottom line - ham and rossi are fighters and make the show regardless of the sport... I for one am glad Ham is at least competitive this year (if only giving the stupid hater posters something to write about) and can't tell you how much fun it was to win money on Rossi on Sunday. If F1 had not turned into the Pirelli world championship thus negating any skill from the sport other than that of being the slowest driver (there is perhaps a 5% difference in speed between all drivers yet they have to drive at 80%) to win, then perhaps we could actually see some Rossi type moves in F1 rather than DRS, tyre, engine, fuel type processions we are seeing at the moment here frankly only the best car and safest smooth driver wins... Followed by all the other just nearly as good cars and drivers...
