cercasi signorine in topless

NEW DELHI - Another great race for Jenson Button, from the 4th position, immediately 2nd. 
Try to recognise who is Mister Bean here... (the actor is Rowan Atkinson). There's someone behaving as Mister Bean this year... a total disaster. You know I dislike Ferrari and have a bad opinion about Massa, not a good driver. But I see that Hamilton makes mistakes every time when he's trying to overtake him (is it so difficult? It shouldn't be...). To be honest, the penalty given to Massa, instead of Hamilton, is just ridiculous.
Formula 1 paid tribute to Marco Simoncelli and Dan Wheldon, at the end Jenson said Marco was an amazing motorcycle rider.

Da notare Jean Todt che appena ha visto Giovannelli è scappato e durante il minuto di silenzio guardava l'orologio...
Telecronaca come sempre allucinante... Mazzoni ci ha messo un sacco di tempo a capire che quel gran pilota scattato dalla 4a posizione e subito 2o, non era Hamilton come continuava a ripetere, ma Button. Solo grazie alla grafica che è venuta fuori sulla tv...
Mi ha sempre "affascinato" anche la grafica della regia italiana che quando iniziano le qualifiche scrive "prima eliminatoria" (cos'è? un concorso di bellezza? lo sci? perchè parlano di "manche"...) come fosse un linguaggio d'altri tempi e una grafica primitiva, così come il telecronista fuori tempo. Se proprio vogliono usare metodi tradizionali di tempi remoti, suggerisco di utilizzare signorine (magari in topless) che passano davanti alzandoci un cartello (e non solo quello), come nel pugilato.
Forse usano quelle scritte perchè pensano che il pubblico è rincoglionito come loro... peccato che non vengono qui a leggere.
Alla fine Hamilton, che ormai mi sta sulle balle (si era capito?), ha risposto col contagocce a quell'incompetente di Stella Bruno, che gli ha chiesto dell'incidente: niente, parlo della gara. Bene, com'è stata la tua gara? Boring. Fine dell'intervista.
Tutto questo per dire che questa F1 in tv è tutta da rifare.

a very bad year for Lewis...

Formula 1 ace Lewis Hamilton says he's been through a "tough time" since splitting from singer Nicole Scherzinger.
The Sun exclusively revealed the pair had called it a day last week after four years together.
Lewis, 26, said: "These times are sent to try you. And it's about how you pull through them."
He is still in touch with the beauty, 33, saying: "We're friends and we can move forward. I have my family who are helping. So I feel pretty good."
Nicole wouldn't discuss her ex as she filmed Alan Carr's Chatty Man Channel 4 show.
An audience member said: "It was embarrassing. Lewis was what we wanted to know about."

mod job for girls

MILAN - I know this is not about cars, but I post something here too, because of Simoncelli, and because this is not really about motorbikes, but about girls :). I don't really care about motorbikes...
You remember the Eicma motorbikes exhibition, my sister organizes that event again and she needs girls to work, but they must be quite thin (38-40 Italian size dress), around 10-13 November @ Fiera Rho. Also many foreign girls work for this. marco@miamilan.com 

McLaren Marlboro colours :), Paul Weller & Kelly Jones (Stereophonics), Call me n.5


(8-9 November for journalists), 10 to 13 November, the 69th (nice number :) EICMA motorbikes exhibition (or : women exhibition :)), as in the past years.
Already an event for November, so the girls can prepare to work there. And people can plan travels (I know English people who even came to Milan just for single car events).
Of course there are all kinds of motorbikes, but we mods (we are mods we are mods we are we are we are mods) are especially interested in Milano Lambretta (name from the river Lambro) and Vespa, that is also in Liam Gallagher's Pretty Green shops.
It's in the same place where Oasis had to perform their last concert ever (fiera Milano-Rho, Expo 2015), Oasis gig now possibly in 2015 as it had to be.
Girls enter for free on Friday 11. My sister is one of the girls working there so I enter for free, so I'm a girl too, lol.
This year it will be dedicated to Marco Simoncelli.

Going places (once also covered with Beady Eye's Gem Archer)


The Jam, English rose

...I could add a thousand songs... The Kinks, The Who, etc.

r.i.p. Marco Simoncelli


from McLaren: "RIP Marco Simoncelli. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and the MotoGP paddock at this sad time."
30/10: "The Formula 1 community and Indian Grand Prix crowd has just respectfully observed a minutes silence for Dan Wheldon and Marco Simoncelli - RIP Dan and RIP Marco" 

(Oasis music Live forever, piano version) - the funeral is on Thursday 27, 2:30pm on Italian tv Italia1 channel from Milan (also satellite). He was also an AC Milan fan. The people are still shocked.
His nickname was "(Super)Sic", yes he was also a bit "sick" 'cause he was mad :)
In the accident he fell and was hit on the only delicate part of a motorcycle racer - the neck - by Colin Edwards who couldn't do anything to avoid him and got injured too. Marco lost the helmet, that's really strange. We thought, just to smile a bit, that is was because of his hair.
The event "Eicma international exhibition" in Milan will be dedicated to him, see here (job for girls).

in India, Formula 1 remembers Marco (this is Trulli helmet, same colours of Simoncelli's)

India GP, George Harrison


NEW DELHI - Martin Whitmarsh, very kind person. Another different weekend (India Grand Prix, for the first time), still speeding.
Indian Pretty Green paisley GP lol. ...(I'm preparing for the Brazilian GP) ..."we need to know more about you"..."you need to be the best"... then they already know enough :)
Almost 10 years ago George Harrison died, big fan of India and McLaren. You remember my post some months ago.
The other day on Oasisblues I was posting a long video with Oasis songs without Noel Gallagher, "The quiet ones" by Gem was clearly a tribute to George, for the sound and the fact that he was the "quiet one" of the Beatles.

F1 memories: Monaco 1993

MONTECARLO - Adriane Galisteu was Senna's new girlfriend at those times. We were there that year (and also came back another time in that period), I found these old pics, and we have more. And also drove on that legendary circuit anticlockwise, lol.
On Thursday (you know, no Formula 1 on Friday in Monaco, the prince must sleep :), it was raining and (quite strange) Senna had a bad accident, so for the qualifying & race his hand was bandaged. And the super Williams by Prost was one second faster : you know, those were the times of so much electronics on the cars, so the driver was less important. The situation for Senna was very difficult, but this was Montecarlo... everything could happen.
Nobody could expect this, Prost the bastard made a false start, so he got a penalty (10 seconds of stop&go). As already happened some weeks before, in the legendary (Europe) GP in Donington, England (with Senna overtaking some cars under the rain in the first lap, becoming first), Prost made the car turn off and was 22th. So, Schumacher was first, but then retired for a mechanical problem.
Prost was one lap late, when Ayrton was about to lap him, the french didn't let him pass... Ayrton protested with his hand against him, then overtook him. Of course Ayrton won (and so he was incredibly first in the drivers standings), 6th win for him in Monaco (it's still the record).

piloti che sanno di tappo

YEONGAM - 700th (not so good) GP for McLaren, I'm quite disappointed, the weekend started so well. How to throw away the only one pole-position in the whole year : Hamilton lost it immediately. Negative year for him.

Mazzoni ripetitivo: "Vi voglio ricordare che si corre in senso antiorario..." beh sì, casomai prendeste la pista dalla parte sbagliata e andiate contromano... 
"Webber fa da tappo a Massa"... sì, è un po' come dire che Vettel fa da tappo a Kobayashi... Infatti appena l'ha detto, Webber se n'è andato via e non l'ha più visto, era Massa a fare da tappo a quelli dietro.
"Button esce dai box ed è in lotta con Rosberg, quindi le Ferrari se ne avvantaggeranno"... detto fatto, le Ferrari erano davanti a Button e ora sono dietro.
Dopo era "Rosberg a fare da tappo"... rientra ai box quindi "ora non fa più da tappo"... dopo è "Hamilton a fare da tappo"... uff questi piloti sanno di tappo. Poi Mazzoni parla di "vittorie di tappa", che è la donna del tappo.
"Dovrebbe essere un ritiro questo di Maldonado" dentro al box durante la gara... no, è rientrato perchè non voleva perdersi la puntata di Beautiful. Poi tra una mezz'oretta rientrerà in gara.
Ci si mette anche Capelli: "Hamilton ha preso una buona accelerazione!"... era davanti a Webber per un sacco di giri e solo adesso che l'ha detto è stato passato.
Alla fine i piloti hanno festeggiato con champagne, che sapeva un po' di tappo.
Ormai 'sti "telecronisti in pista" hanno capito che c'è tutta Italia che li prende per i fondelli e ogni tanto cercano di buttarla sul comico, facendo piangere. Quasi quasi se non ci fossero mi mancherebbero. Quasi.
Perchè senza di loro parleremmo solo di sport, robe tecniche, robe serie, mica puttanate.
A proposito di puttanate, a Monza ho visto per la prima volta da vicino quell'incompetente totale di Stella Bruno (ma come mai ha lo stesso cognome di quell'altro, l'ingegner Bruno?! mah! soliti raccomandati in Rai...). 'Sto ingegnere sembra quello di "Ho vinto quacche cosa?" di Mai dire gol.
Certo non bisogna giudicare le persone da alcuni "dettagli", ma nel caso di "vai Stella" non c'è una roba che si salva. La prima (e ultima) parola che mi è venuta in mente è stata : vacca. Che schifo.
A questi esperti di tappi, mentre "lavorano" levategli il Lambrusco.

McLaren 700 GPs, Marco 500 GPs, stay young and invincible

YEONGAM - McLaren celebrates their 700th Formula 1 race this weekend in Korea. Founded at the Beatles times in 1963, they started to race in F1 in 1966. Ferrari in 1929 (but really from 1939) and in F1 from the beginning, 1950, but in a comparison Ferrari-McLaren the percentage for number of GPs / races won, is similar.

Asked by McLaren which was his favourite race, Marco answered:
"My favourite McLaren race is always the last one, 'cause I love McLaren always more and more. It's about 3 decades I'm following you (when Jenson was born :), so for me it's something like the 500th GP :). I'm always meeting my favourite Jenson, his race in Canada this year was the best one I've ever seen. From Italy, in spite of Ferrari :), thank you for the good times".

In the first years of F1 there were a few races and time ago about 16 per year, now they're always more, so I can say that I've seen about half the races in the whole F1 history.
It seems I'm fucking old, lol, no, Noel Gallagher is. Hahah. Liam has always a very young spirit, and I'm much younger than him, so I'm not worried about age :) and I look very young.
It seems that Noel is young only in his Adidas shoes :), because Liam said they shouldn't be used by people from about 30 years old. Well, I do use them :)
In 1997 Noel wrote the great song Stay Young (and invincible, come what may we're unstoppable, my faith's unshakeable), but he didn't like it. Of course Liam loved it, me too.

new rule: you can push the other cars to the grass

SUZUKA - Breaking news. New rule in Formula 1: you can now push the other cars to the grass.
That's what Vettel did at the start against Button, and of course he should have had a penalty. Of course he didn't have.
What kind of world champions is this? The most overrated one. The one who makes so many mistakes when it rains while great drivers as Button make miracles.
Vettel, driving a perfect car (by the Englishman Adrian Newey, ex McLaren), clearly has a good reputation and the judges probably think he can't make mistakes, he can't be dishonest.
Oh something new: Hamilton hit Massa again.
Come on Japan, come on Jenson, he's 1st now! stronger than injustice!
And he won the Japanese race!
Before the race I predicted: "Jenson without a doubt".
At the end, half joking, Jenson asked Vettel if he didn't see him...

Button stays at McLaren but says: to win we need a clear number 1 in the team

SUZUKA - Another Formula 1 weekend, this time in Japan. And other years with our favourite driver (here in the photo winning in Hungary : we'll go there next year, a bit tired of Monza, I know it too well and the fans are too crazy here, too much confusion).
Jenson Button has signed a new multi-year contract to stay at McLaren after several months of negotiations.
There was little doubt that Button would remain at the team next year, but the question was whether he would sign to stay at the team beyond 2012 or leave his options open. However, today McLaren confirmed that Button will stay put on a new multi-year contract.
But Jenson says the best way to win the World Championship is to have a clear number one driver in the team.
"The best way for a team to win the World Championship would be probably to have a No 1 driver, and a No 2 driver who is happy to be a No 2. We do not have this at McLaren. If I cannot win then I am pleased if he wins. I'm like 'Wow, he has really done a good job'. On the other hand it will be exactly the same because we drive for the same team. A victory is always good for the mood in the team."
"I've never felt more at home at a team than I do at McLaren," Button said. "I've won four of the greatest races of my life here, I'm currently lying second in the drivers' world championship, and I feel that I'm driving better than ever.
"You can only achieve that with the right level of support - and I truly believe that the passion and determination to win are stronger here at McLaren than anywhere else.
"As a grand prix driver, those are incredibly powerful feelings to share and be part of, and they've only reinforced my desire to commit my long-term future to this team. I've made no secret of my ambition to continue winning races and world championships, and I fully believe this is the place where I can achieve those aims.
"We at McLaren know how to win, and we're busy refining an organisation that will enable us to keep on doing that for years to come."
Although exact details of the contract length have not been revealed, team principal Martin Whitmarsh said Button is one half of "the best driver line-up in all of Formula One" alongside Lewis Hamilton and that he was delighted to secure his services.
"Jenson is a great driver and a great guy," Whitmarsh said. "In fact, I can safely say that he's one of the most capable and respected drivers we've ever had, and I'm therefore absolutely delighted that he'll continue to work with us into the future. He's a considerable credit to this organisation, and I'm proud to be his team principal.
"I feel sure that he'll now build on the considerable success he's already achieved with us, and will be even more successful with us in years to come. I think he and Lewis say it better than anyone. Their comments show just how much they respect and trust each other, and they once again continue to prove what we as a team have always known: that McLaren has the very best driver line-up in all of Formula One."
Hamilton also welcomed the deal: "It's great news that Jenson has chosen to stay with McLaren," he said. "Jenson has been a great person to work with, and a genuine team-player, from the moment we welcomed him on board. McLaren is a team with a unique and successful tradition in Formula One, which I'm proud to be part of.
"It was the best moment of my career when I won the drivers' world championship with this team. Jenson and I are as hungry and as ambitious as ever to win races and world championships in the future."

competition: win Senna (Adriane maybe included)


MILAN - On Oasisblues I was posting about the Playboy party in Milan on 6 October featuring a special guest of mine @ our club Just Cavalli Hollywood where we invited Liam Gallagher some months ago, and Liam on the latest Playboy Japan (not nude, lol), let's put something here too: time ago, Adriane Galisteu from Brazil, Senna's ex girlfriend, was on Playboy Brazil ("a estrela nua na Italia", oh yeah :), here she is, eating spaghetti or doing something with them, lol). Oh Adriane, those blonde hairs on your body make me crazy :). As the film Rocky 4 the Italian stallion said : Adrianaaa I love yooouu ^_^
She got a bit old now, but anyway... I would. Lol.
After Oasis brother Paul Gallagher's and my posts, here's another one about Senna, this time a competition.
One lucky reader is on track to win a top-notch Home Entertainment system and a copy of racing film "Senna".
The prize package includes a Samsung 51" 3D Ready Plasma TV and a Samsung 2.1 Blu-ray Home Cinema.
Plus, the lucky winner and five runners-up will receive a Triple Play Blu-ray copy of Senna biopic.
The moving documentary charts the tragic life of Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna, who won three World Championships before dying in a crash while leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.
The loss sparked a host of safety improvements to the sport and no other driver has died mid-race since.
Brazilian-born Senna is widely considered one of the best racing drivers of all time.
Out on Triple Play Blu-ray and dvd October 10, Senna movie tells his incredible story using lots of previously unseen footage, taken from the Formula One archives.
