Face the truth? Raikkonen could have braked to avoid him? In what world does braking harder prevent someone from rear ending you? Like I said, this isn't bumper cars, you don't just go driving around like you're either going to pass someone or crash into them.
Bravery isn't braking too late into one of the tightest turns on the calendar. If you watched qualifying for the 2002 race at Spa you'd know just how dumb/brave Raikkonen is.

My issue with him is how he's trying to pass, not who. You seriously can't just dive into a corner and expect other people to give you a position and the entire racetrack in one of the tightest sections on the tightest course on the calendar just because you got your nose next to another car's back wheels. He left no room for Alonso to go anywhere but over the curb, and then the FIA called it a pass because he went over the curb. Perez left him no other option. He tried to do the same with Kimi, who was on a line to block the whole time. It's F1, not bumper cars.
Dive bombing a corner, missing the braking point, and forcing others off track repeatedly isn't being a hero, it's being a bad driver.

@speedhunters_dino @Qu1N7 Why have a smiley about people legitimately concerned for both your safety and the image this post is spreading, which places the appearance of safety over safety itself?If you're not going to use the rear seats anyway, at least get a harness bar. But don't pass this off as a safety improvement.

Fastest lap is all that counts, you're not racing anyone else. The only goal is to go out and get around the track as quickly as possible in one lap, whoever has the fastest lap at the end of the event wins. You'll often see cars that can only drive 3 or 4 laps before they run out of gas. Hell, the Team America R32 GT-R won't even be running an alternator when it hits the track.

@lonestranger Exactly. I have no problem with posts about different cars and cultures, but 10 degrees of camber should definitely be illegal and not glorified. Pretending someone has made a god tier car when the brakes are totally inadequate and calling it the coolest car of 2013/evar is just hype.

Wheel wells build up positive pressure, the vents are supposed to bleed that off.

I love how people here call it overdesigned, then turn around and jizz about BenSopra's hideous bodykits. At least the vents on this thing are functional. Gotta agree though, the rear is overdone. And the vents should be body color. Other than that, incredibly sexy.

@RodChong @Option13 Plenty touring cars have cutouts around the fenders. Just not in front of the tires. Or such ridiculous little kicks at the end of the splitter and skirts. It's not race bred. Some may like it but race bred it is not.

@Aisakey Missing the point. "race-bred aero". It's not race bred. There might be some design cues, but implying that any real race team would run a kit where function follows form is ridiculous.
@Aisakey "...showing what CAD-powered know-how and race-bred aero could do to the ZN6"
Read my comment again and tell me what your response had to do with it. The bodykit doesn't resemble any racecar.
So what racecar does the FR-S bodykit resemble? Cause to me it just looks like standard Japanese bolt on bodykit styling. Stop hyping it.
@777 Oh come on fanboi, how new was the last car you said that about? It's a cheap looking bodykit on a car with stock brakes.

I don't care how many hours he put into making that kit, it's still hideous.
@nickthaskater @TomHoward I never said he can't pass. However, it's not his strongest suit. If he had driven a Ferrari I doubt he would have done as well as Alonso did.
In a pretty competitive season he had by far the best car that could really deliver in qualifying. His competitors didn't.

Because Adrian Newey has as much to do with the three championships as does Vettel. He's very quick, but often has trouble moving through traffic and has done some very immature driving on the way.
