oh no my friend....Bernie promised it'll be back in 2010....

Oh come on, it's not that far of a stretch; remember the talk of a reverse grid. Cause getting bumped to the back of the line is really going to make drivers try in qualifying.

I am not the biggest fan of white cars to be honest... BMW included... yes the blue lines are neat, but white is just so bare...
