The film we made will be shown this saturday night in Monaco to a group of VIPS, engineers, drivers and other mucky mucks associated with Ferrari. Yupp, my work is going to be shown to a group of Ferari VIPs that includes Luca di Montezemola and Stephano Domenicali. I am elated!!!!!

Once I get the go ahead from the director, I will post a copy of the video for everyone to enjoy. I have been waiting for awhile to break this news here. I am SO STOKED about this job.

I am so happy that I have this chance to share this with you guys.
Sounds exciting. Congrats!

So... 6th different winner this Sunday? I'm going to say Kimi for the win but I hope Webber pulls out a good result.

thats awesome xbook, next time you make a video for Ferrari, can you put some subliminal messages so they hurry up and replace Massa w/ Perez?

Button was quickest in FP2 with a 1:15.746 before the rain came down. Grosjean followed 0.392 slower with Massa (shock and surprise) Alonso, Maldonado, Rosberg, Webber, Kobayashi, Schumacher and Vettel rounding out the top 10.

Bomb scare at Monaco

SUSPECT MONACO PACKAGE DETONATED

Quote:
A bomb disposal expert was called in to undertake a controlled explosion of a suspect package in the paddock for the Monaco Grand Prix on Thursday night.

A small white plastic box was found discarded outside the entrance to the media centre, the Salle d'Exposition near to La Rascasse.

Local police initially closed off the entrance to the media centre at around 9.45pm local time, forcing journalists leaving to exit through a back door.

The area was then sealed off to allow the bomb disposal expert to check the package over before he eventually declared it suspect.

A small crowd that had gathered, including a handful of journalists and photographers, were pushed back to a distance of around 50 yards in between the motorhomes belonging to Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone and the FIA.

As the expert prepared to detonate, the group was asked to retreat a further 20 yards near to the entrance of the McLaren motorhome.

Finally, after 20 minutes working on the package and wiring it up, it was eventually exploded, creating a considerable noise and leaving shards of white plastic strewn across the floor.

It is the second time in successive years a bomb disposal unit has been summoned to the paddock ahead of the Monaco race.
