Is the title OK?

I was looking through the old titles to get inspiration. I love the title of thread #5. IF is F1 backwards. I remember Murray Walker saying that. I miss Murray Walker and his sayings.

TFTNT Julie!

We lost the older threads when was down back in 2003/2004 and so the only ones that were saved were from #21 onwards.

I didn't even know it was Murray who said that.

You're welcome.

It's a shame about the older threads.

Murray Walker is awesome.

Yeah I tried looking for the older threads in this board and they were gone.

Alonso will announce something on Tuesday. I wonder what this is?

Yeah he's one of the older drivers so this might be his time to go. I almost did think he won't be racing this year and will retire so I was surprised he stayed on and on the same team too. UGH if we lose both Alonso & Kimi next year.

I need them to stay to be interested in the sport still. I'm afraid I can relate to the young ones much

I've been watching F1 for a long time so I relate to the veteran/older drivers more. The young ones are great (like Leclerc) but I don't see any potential Schumi yet in this batch.

Based on reactions I'm reading, fans are speculating that Alonso will retire and move to Indy Car. I don't see him staying on longer at McLaren, the team isn't doing good with their car and he's just wasting his talent if he stays. He can scout other teams but the only ones that are worth transferring to are Ferrari, Mercedes & RBR all of which is not an option for him. I've watched Alonso since his Minardi days so this is like Massa & JB retirement for me all over again if he leaves. I'll miss him.

I might give Indy Car another shot if Alonso moves there.

Damn. We knew this was coming but it still makes me sad. He's one of my favorite older drivers on the grid. I will miss him a lot.
