Official 2012 Formula 1 Season Thread

Well the season starts less than a week away in Australia and we don't have an official thread yet so here it is


I think this image f1.com posted pretty much sums up how awesome this season could be

Sorry had to fail you there... Come on dude... Take India out of the equation, and Symbian's market share in Asia is irrelevant. It is already irrelevant in Western Europe.

That said, India is a pretty big market, so I don't know why they didn't make a Symbian port

But still

As for the season, looking forward to it! Got bored and skipped the last few races last year. So it is not on BBC this year, right? Does that mean they'll have commercial breaks again? Hope the announce team doesn't suck

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

But still
actually no

Nokia/Symbian is still #1 in most of europe and in the top 3 in the rest except for the UK where they're 4th (by country)

look at the latest Comscore report and you'll see what im talking about (they've only selected the major makets in europe but u'll get the picture)

as for taking India out of the equation.... i wasn't even considering them.. sure Nokia/Symbian is still #1 (barely as Android is about to surpass them) there but but Nokia/Symbian is #1 in China etc (#2 in vietnam/malaysia yada yada)

South America too although the smartphone market is small there regardless though you would think they'd make an App for Symbian if not Symbian^3 than S60 like they did in 2011 since where Formula 1 is popular Nokia still dominates if not in the smartphone realm than the "dumbphone" :P

I mean come on.... they made an app for BlackBerry!

here i uploaded the comscore report comScore_2012_Mobile_Future_in_Focus.pdf - download now for free. File sharing. Software file sharing. Free file hosting. File upload. FileFactory.com for reference about europe

Had an awesome day at my first F1 in Melbourne, thought I'd share a few pics that I snapped throughout the day.

Watching turn 11 and 12 from Brocky Hill


Turn 10






Turn 11 and 12 (opposite Brocky Hill)


Down the main straight at the braking point going into turn 1

Yeah general admission, being my first time I wanted to get a few different vantage points. I was very surprised by how good some of the general admission viewing areas were.

Kimi mistimed his last run in Q1, got loose in a corner and lost a few seconds, and crossed the line too late to start his flying lap. It's too bad because going by his teammate Grosjean's time, Kimi should've been able to qualify pretty high up too.
