2006 330i  [4.67]
2012 Formula 1 Korean Grand Prix

I almost forgot its back to back weekends!!!

Love and hate track for RBR which got the momentum back now. Had a dominant lead in 2010 but engine failure and rain cause their major setback and double DNF in the season. Then followed by the dominant win in 2011. Perhaps weather will play a role here again, and the suspicious alternator issue.

If Alonso stays away from the Lotus Renaults, he should bring home some healthy points, and keep the championship hunt.

Single DRS introduced on the main straight only this weekend. Detection just before Turn 1. It has been extended so drivers can activate 320 meters after Turn 2.

Korea appearance for Gangnam Style star

Oh dear gawd~
Is it just me, or there are other felt gangnam style is getting annoying...

Quote:
PSY, the Korean superstar recording artist behind global hit Gangnam Style, is to perform an exclusive concert for grandstand ticket holders at the Korea International Circuit (KIC) following next month’s Formula 1 Korean Grand Prix.

Rapper PSY, whose song Gangnam Style has taken the world by storm, racking up almost 300 million hits on YouTube since it debuted in July, has also been announced as an ambassador for the race by organisers.

“I look forward to bringing Gangnam Style to the glamorous world of F1, and welcome everyone to Korea for this great race!” said PSY, who has taught his extraordinary dance moves to the likes of Britney Spears and Ellen DeGeneres.

In addition to PSY’s show on Sunday, October 14, the weekend’s concerts on Friday, October 12 and Saturday, October 13 will include some of K-Pop’s hottest stars.

It's pretty much what a Macarena was in the early 90's.

I meant the dance, not the youtube hits... YouTube wasn't even there in the 90's.

The song and dance is driving me insane....felt like brainwashed...

Perhaps I was traumatized because myself and other groomsmen had to dance at my friend's wedding a few weeks ago...

I love it. I just came from Korea. It was crazy actually being IN Gangnam. They'd randomly play the song outside and literally every person would stop what they were doign and start dancing like some giant flash mob.

Interested to see how many drivers/crew get out and start doing it!
