    There's a lot negativity surrounding the future of F1 here on our forums. While I share the concerns of some, there's a lot lot of unnecessary whining as well. So, how about a more upbeat thread for once?

    The idea is blatantly ripped off one of PlanetF1's editorials ( http://www.planet-f1.com/story/0,18954,3261_4568840,00.html). But instead of taking their stand of 2008 being the best ever, I'll just state 2008 as one of the best to save this thread from degenerating into an argument whether 2008 was really the best or not.

    It's simple, all that needs to be done is in each post add one thing you loved about the season - races, overtaking manoeuvres, conspiracy theories, controversies, anything! I know Simmo will help me out here <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    I'll start.
    1) Kimi vs Lewis, Spa.

    And a humble request: try not to turn this into a flamewar, guys! We have the rest of the forum for that! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  2. Wow a non-fAGgot in the racing forum, good to see you!
  3. Good to be here, mate. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  4. I didn't notice you mentioned me in your opening post lol.

    I hope this doesn't spark any flamingz, but the reaction of Massa's father when he was told Hamilton won the title was pretty damn memorable. Not just because Ferrari lost (woo!), but it showed the PASSION in F1. Even though others say it is lacking.
  5. Your plans will now be ruined.

    GTR vs ZR1!
    Mclaren F1 vs veyron!
    z06 vs universe!

  6. Ferrari S2000?

  8. The fact that the title was won on the last corner of the last race makes the season pretty memorable.

    Vettel becoming the youngest winner, and causing the German & Italian anthems to start up againI found lol
  10. AGREED. Great season, and will definitely go down with good memories.

    One of my favs would be this year's monaco gp, so much crazy shit happened

    Wet start and the Ferrari's struggled
    Hamilton hits the barrier then recovers, works his way to the front
    More incidents leading to safety cars and Raikkonen flips out on the restart... ruining Sutil's dream race
    P Diddy getting pissed off when he got sprayed by champagne in the victory celebrations
  11. Seeing my favorite team taking a 1-2 finish in Montreal <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    toro rosso dominating all weekend in monza was pretty awesome too

    Renaults come back at the end of the season
  12. I'd like to mention the complete lack of JagMan
  13. lol at Kimi vs Lewis, Spa.

    Lewis getting penalized at busstop..gay. the fact that there is asphalt in the inside of the corner instead of grass or whatever is gay too..
  14. passion...lol

  15. The end of the season was simply amazing.

    Massa's behavior was also superb after losing the championship the last moment.


  16. +1 although it's funny to hear this coming from you ha ha

  17. How are you?
  18. Absolutely. It was an incredibly mature reaction, good to see such a gracious loser. Many could learn from him.
