Danica would be and already is a marketing dream, but the truth is, she can't compete in F1. I agree with Mibz. Do a year or 2 in GP2, then if youre good enough move up. That's how everyone else has had to do it.

Williams' car has been revealed. Not -as- good looking as the spy shot but still one of the best looking cars this year:

From what I've heard it's been confirmed that Danica will be racing in F1.
This will be the first time in 18 years where a woman has driven in F1. Danica has tough competition but at least she’s out there. MUCH props to the USF1 Team which will be announced tomorrow.

I guess its "exciting" in a way that there's gonna be a new team next year. But i highly doubt they will be competitive, not to mention Danica is just there for advertising/sponsorship/show. But if thats what it takes to gain popularity in NA then so be it

all along I never thought this USF1 thing was a joke and was never going to happen. Now that they're announcing tomorrow and Danica's going to be their driver, at least 1 out of 2 ain't bad.

Why don't we setup a Beyond pool thru this.. http://www.pooltracker.com/game_info/f1_pickem.asp

I am just reading through it now...


What It Is:

Challenge you and your friends' knowledge of Formula 1. See who can correctly pick the Top 10 drivers for each race.

Make your prediction of the Top 10 Formula 1 drivers each week.

Accrue points based on Top 10 finishers.

Get full points for exact placings and partial points for other Top 10 finishers.

I meant the point of a pool is a fee, a collective pool of entry fees. At the end of the season, person with the most points wins. Or you can do 1st, 2nd, 3rd too..

You really gonna miss $10-20??:dunno:

4 days til friday practice!
Make your picks for the pool. I'm actually pretty stumped after this year's winter testing compared to other years.

First race is always gonna be a crap-shoot anyway. There's gonna be more DQs and Retirees than people who finish if you ask me. My top 2 picks will be whoever gets P1/2 and the rest is gonna be random.

I think last year there was only 9-10 cars left by the end of the race... :rofl:

I bet that first corner is gonna be scattered with front wings when the red lights go out.. haha!


EDIT: Anyone in the pool, Don't forget to get you entry fees in this week. :)

Just a little tip for those in the pool: Probably not a good idea to put Rosberg in the points due to front wing.

The rules says you can change your predictions up to 6 hours before the start of the race.
