Default Hi There!!

Hi everyone!!
Finally made it to Team BHP on my second attempt!I am 20 years old and am doing mechanical engineering in bangalore.I love cars and am a petrolhead.I own a Swift and love driving it especially after 10 in the night when roads are empty.I love watching formula 1 and am one of the few who started watching it in 1998 and so was a Haikkinen fan (Schumacher who?!).Anyways nowdays have become a ferrari fan since Kimi Raikkonen moved to Ferrari.I believe in the famous quote "If you wanna win get a Finn!!". Looking forward to discussing cars and making lots of friends on Team BHP!!
Cheers!!!!

Aha, a fellow Hakkinen fan. I respect Mika for his sportsmanship and humility.

These days, it's more between Germans, Brits & a certain Spaniard.

Welcome KRf1. We'd appreciate your taking a quick pitstop by our board rules section.

Welcome aboard KRf1.

Please use spaces after punctuation marks to ease readability. Take a look at this thread for details.

Hey Krf1 - welcome to Team-BHP. I loved Mika's interviews when the commentator would ask these super-long questions and Mika would listen to the entire question answer with a deadpan and gruff "YUS" in that typical Finn accent. Hilarious.

By the way, his name is Hakinnen, not Haikinnen.

Cheers,
Sam

I stand corrected . Thanks Sam . The press conferences were always hilarious even kimi is similar to him. I also miss the legendary Schumi vs Mika battles. Remember the master move at Spa. There is a video on youtube with the onboard camera view from Mika's car through an entire lap as he overtakes schumi at Spa . Brilliant!
