  2. Re: who doesnt like minardi?

    everyone likes them because theyre sooo bad, if they ever got in the points (knock on wood) everyone would go nuts!! thatd overshadow anything else that happend
     
  3. Re: who doesnt like minardi?

    They fill up space on the track, don't get points, but they stick with it. kudos to them...A+ for effort. <!-- Signature -->
     
  4. Re: who doesnt like minardi?

    Well, last year they started off with a totally new car, so it definately wasn't gonna be their best year. I think that they'll get better and better as time goes on (hopfully anyway). And of course i like em', they're Aussie owned and have an Aussie driver! <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
     
  5. Re: who doesnt like minardi?

    Even though Minardi are probably gonna come last in every race this year, they're the Aussie team (now), so we gotta support them.

    They are there to bring comedy to the sport of F1. When sitting at the track, when they go by, you can just tell by the sound of the engine they are down on power and like through all the years of F1 someone has always done pour. I think the car looks better though.
     
  9. Re: who doesnt like minardi?

    Minardi has struggled the last 15 years in F1 and is the only small team left, all teams that were behind Minardi have given up. Now it looks better than ever for Minardi, the car has even power steering!
    Minardi is a good example of that hard trying year after year can turn out to good results.
     
  10. Re: who doesnt like minardi?

    At least it looks good.
     
  11. Re: who doesnt like minardi?

    One good thing for Minardi is that they have no where to go but up. However, you can only expect so much from a team that uses engines that are a couple years old.
     
  12. Re: who doesnt like minardi?

    Minardi may not have the seemingly limitless financial backing of some of the other teams, may not have the best car, best engines and/or engineers, their drivers may not be world champions, (yet!!! go Mark!), but they're there, at the track, having a go and they've been there for a while now. They won't win a race this year, but who knows, maybe in the rain, a few incidents, a lucky break in the pits, and they may even score a championsip point. Good luck guys!<!-- Signature -->
     
  13. Re: who doesnt like minardi?

    i think it would be so great if by some miracle minardi were to win a race. like if all the other cars got in a huge crash, and all that was left were the two minardi's. that would be the highlight of their entire existence. well we can all hope that one day this could happen, but if it proly won't so, go schumi!<!-- Signature -->

    Is McLaren CURRENTLY (or was it ever) a NZ team? I don't think so!!!! Do they have an NZ driver?? No!!! So It's clear that NZ have no claim to McLaren whatsoever!! <!-- Signature -->

    Does anyone know just how underpowered they are? I would guess about 30hp behind the second slowest.<!-- Signature -->
     
  19. Re: who doesnt like minardi?

    I heard that the acient asiatech engine has 770 bhp, which could be up to 100 bhp down on the BMW engine of Williams.

  24. Re: who doesnt like minardi?

    I like Minardi soley for the fact that they have been racing for almost twenty years now, and have gotten points only a couple of those years. Yet, they have still chosen to hang on for the ride. I wonder what would happen if someone gave them enough money to get an amazing car and an amazing driver. I wonder what would happen if Minardi somehow managed to win both the drivers and constructors championships in the same year! I wonder what everyone would say?
     
  25. rip minardi
