    Wah.. Kimi is out of the world from the rest of the driver!!! So, I guess Ferrari saves alot of money by replacing Kimi with Alonso... Anyone know how much Ferrari is paying Alonso?

    As for this weekend race, seems like it is not advisable to overtake at the Abu Dhabi track due to loads of dust and sand... Looking forward to the final race!!!

    the disparity in pay between J. Button and R. Barrichello is quite astonishing. 5m vs 0.5m.

    Kimi vs Massa difference can be explaind as Kimi is an ex world champion, same case for Hamilton vs Kovalainen.

    no lah... Barrichello gets 1m. the best part is... Barrichello jetted Button back to UK after the Brazilian GP on his private jet.

    with a paycheck of 5m, i'm wondering why Button complained that he needs to travel budget to all the race venues.

    Interesting comment from Kimi on the tunnel in the pit lane exit, he mentioned that its similar to the pit exit in Brazil, except there's a wall instead of a guardrail.

    Exciting last minutes of the Q3 session, with Rubens, Mark, the kid, and PS trading pole positions.

    Seriously, I think the pit exit is a joke. Good to watch, but what if a car stalls in that narrow tunnel?

    Not if it's tainted like Fernando's "win" in Singapore.

    Most of them in the city are open. That's where I watch the races. Can say it's cheaper to subscribe to sports channel on cable

    Hhaha, OK, Bro. Got you there. Cheaper? Really? Let's say that there are 2 races in a month, how much do you spend per trip to Harry's? I am only asking, not questioning you statement ya!

    Well Schumi was paid a staggering 60m a season, I think the gap between him and his old team mates Barrichello and Massa was equally astonishing.

    Cheapest@25. Depending on the thirst & hunger, of course. That's minus the time you need for travel & that's without the comfort of just sitting at home to watch qualifying, the race, & the replays. So sports subsription is really worth it.

    OK. Crystal clear explanation from you, Bro. $25 is based on Mio TV subscription right? I am currently neither Starhub nor Mio's client.
