How's the wife and kid, Rocco ?

Here's what I was able to get out of this article..
Pour la coquette somme de 15 000 $...
For the small sum of $15,000 dollars....

After that I lost interest.

Wife and kid are good. We went through some rough times around the Holidays, but things are better now. My son will be two years old in a month.

Believe it or not, but I miss having my rear wing knocked off. Well... :roll:

almost. :wink:

Hey Rocco. Are you still in the country, stuck on dial-up, or are you back in civilization now?

Yeah, still stuck in the woods with dial-up ("that's the best friggin' dial-up connection I've ever seen !" -F1Addict), along with the little green elves who still bring us our mail on a bi-weekly basis. :mrgreen:

Any plans for a Sunday walk in Albert Park on March 18th ? :roll:

:wink:

I'll force myself to go, at least to a practice session.

Hey Hynee, where's your enthusiasm ?!

Tell me you haven't become blasé with this whole "hanging out with top notch F1 in-crowds" thing ? (also called le gratin) :P

Well, I'm nowhere near le gratin, I'm hanging out with the unwashed crowd (les miserable). Anyway, it's a 50/50 as to whether I go or not...

You know these cars display an awesome show of power and brute force don't you ? It's better than the monster trucks.

Are you kidding me? I stood 5 metres from the edge of the back straight, it was like watching aeroplanes go past!

Hehe :P That's how I used to feel like when I got lapped... :(

It's also why it's much better to sit near a braking zone (chicane or hairpin): you're able to watch the cars for a longer period of their lap time... not to mention be a witness to their awesome braking power! 8)
