All right that's it. I'm going off to the pub now to get drunk with some friends. Then after I get kicked out, I'm coming home to watch qualifying, and come on here and rant about diffusers whether anyone like it or not!

Now I like Brawn, and toyota (williams too), but I do understand why the other teams are pissed (O.k. as a red bull fan I'm kinda pissed too). But I did hear a podcast this week where they mentioned that all the teams sent in a tech to discuss the diffuser rules (among all the others) and they all came away with the belief that the top had to be flat. Well all but Toyota, Williams and Brawn, who didn't send a rep. So...

Your broadcast is about 5 min ahead of me. Man I can't wait to see how fast that red bull is gong to be with one of the new diffusers bolted on! McLaren is defiantly having problems.

oh so it had to be global warming hey ..... some mysterious hand of unexplainable fire caused by us all breathing out carbon dioxide came down from the heavens and ignited it all. And I'm the one with shyte for brains. Funny you crazy cooks will always find conspiracies to suit your cause. I suppose you also are convinced that the US government ... no wait wait, it was only that evil bastard George Bush, planned and executed the attack on the twin towers and blew up building 7. And of course the best one, the polar bears are on the brink of extinction because the polar caps are all but gone, even though the polar bear population has grown in the last 10 years or so, and the last expidition who wanted to prove the point about the melting ice were stranded 1 half days into an expidition, ummm why ... well because the weather was so cold and they were snowed in. Of course they wanted to do it the environmentalist way, they went on ski's in hte middle of winter. Wow they had to be airlifted by one of those evil things called airplanes, you know the ones you crazies say are causing the very globasl warming that does not exist. Get a life sheep shagger, and try get an education, you're being brain washed by greedy folks like Al Gore who's making an absolute fortune selling invisible carbon credits to stupid idiots like you, while he live his life using more elcetricity in his house in a month than the average family in the USA spends in a year, let alone the fact that he preaches earth destruction by humans while flying around the world in his private jet doing the very thing he is accusing the rest of us of doing. Double standards dumbass, sadly you're one of the morons who fall for all this crap, and I thougth you Aussies were a half decent bunch. Oh hang on I forgot you're decendents of a bunch of low life convicts. go figure......
