F1 + Tour de France

TDF first. Lance Armstrong rocks. Words cannot express how far he's come after winning his battle with Cancer. Way to go Lance, you are an inspiration for the millions out there.

F1. In the years Ferrari + Michael were champions (consecutively, 1999-2004) how many mechanical failures did the car have? Probably less than 10 on the day of the race, across both cars. 15 at most. Now that is consistency. No wonder they were able to hold on as champs for the period they did. Personally, I feel that if Rory Bryne had designed the F2005 and had Bridgestone done a wee bit more homework, Ferrari would be really competing for the title this year as well. Mclaren/Mercedes really need to take a leaf out of Ferrari's consistency book if they ever want to win another title in F1. The Mclarens have the pace, the aerodynamics, the tyres, the drivers. Everything but an engine that won't run the full race or blow up in practice. Wake up dudes. Fast.

Schumi did all he could with an underperforming car, holding back Giancarlo as long as he could :)

Yes, I jumped again when Kimi's car went kaput. Only for a second, but I had to celebrate.

Oh yeah. Its better than being schumi right now. Dont even have the car to show his talent. Kimi, atleast has the car to dominate. Agreed, reliability is an issue. But, its not that Mclaren are not working on it. You will always have good and bad days. U shouldnt quit the team coz ur having a bad day.

Tell me, which other team currently can offer Kimi more than what Mclaren are doing?

Dude, I knew you'd bring up Schumi. Don't even start :)

Mercedes *never* have had reliability after 1999. Seriously, how many engine blowups were there for Schumi and Kimi across the same season?

Even now, Schumi's engine isn't blowing every race. That's still performing fine. And Schumi's got nothing to prove, after 6 world championships. Kimi does have everything to prove will all the talent and nothing to show for it. Coming to your track :p it's like India not winning a world cup with Sachin Tendulkar.

Yes, you have good days and bad days. When you want to be champions, you need more good days than bad, not the reverse. How many engine blowups have Renault had this season? None I guess. Which is why Alonso is where he is, even though his car isn't as good as the Mclaren.

You should quit the team after having bad year after year. Come on dude, this isn't the first time this is happening!!! This was the year they had a kick ass car (after a long time) and their engines are fucking them.

Renault can. They're best for the moment, but that can change. All I'm saying is Kimi can't keep getting pole positions and then retiring. Does him no good. He's wasting time and talent with Mclaren. Period.
