    They're not going to make the crew dress up this time, are they?

    *insert easy Terminator reference here*


    The Brawn cars are pretty plain; let them have fun sprucing them up for a bit.

    I always thought that was more of what Redbull did during Monaco. (Superman, Star Wars, etc...)

    I'm surprised that the whole car is not wrapped up in a a bio-mechanical skeleton, that would look great.

    It looks as if it might only be on the rear wing end plates and, if so, the car will still be pretty plain.

    What is it Toyota that did Batman a while ago? They had that stupid "motorcycle" and the tumbler on the track. Those have got to be the most stupidest bat mobiles.

    Jenson Button as he takes of from the starting line in P1 " Hasta la vista, baby."

    Bigger question is why they don't have more sponsorship at this point.
    Button's looking good for the WDC.
    Brawn for the WCC.
    Team gets loads of media attention.
    Why haven't they cashed in yet?

    Has to be the economy. It's difficult to believe an achievement this historic and significant in F1 is occurring and Brawn is generating as much interest in sponsorship as a second entry from Dale Coyne.

    At least they've tapped into one of the few industries doing well. I'd love to see the team in Spock Ears at Monaco...

    Wouldn't that be a bit uncomfortable under the helmets?

    Apparently the Marketing people at Brawn-y are fast asleep. HONESTLY COULD THERE BE A BETTER OPPORTUNITY TO ADVERTISE

    The whole Terminator franchise is like a religion to me. Biggest Terminator fan here. Can't wait for Salvation and sitting on needles over whether the Sarah Connor Chronicles will be cancelled or not.

    Judgment day izz inevitabble.

    My religion is Jedi.

    T1 is my one of my favourite film's ever, the end sequence to me was simply awesome, the stuff my nightmares are made off.

    Like you can't wait for Salvation, nice to know I'am not the only Terminator nutter on here...:)
    As you know I love robots

    I like dogs as well ...:p

    Errmm methinks Button will keep the Massa powered up KERS Missile behind him, unless he uses his demolition derby technique on the first corner. ;)

    Never was much into Star Wars. Too far away from today's world. That's what I find so fascinating about Terminator: Annihilation is right underneath the surface of the human skin. Just a few steps in chip evolution away.

    Yep, between the two I prefer Terminator without question... and as you said a few steps away.

    The religion bit I was refering to was on a government census survey of all people and households in the country.

    I was told don't know if 100% correct, but if enough folk put down there religon as Jedi they would have to recognize it as a true religion so thats what I did ..along with a lot of others..;)

    Very funny.

    I love the references to Christianity in "the Sarah Connor Chronicles". The horsemen of the Apocalypse in season 1 and the shootout at the Mexican church in season 2 were some of the best I have ever seen on the small screen.

    Your avatar seems to have a bit of a hangover.

    Vizsla actually has a point: If you pick a terminator as your avatar, there are much better looking ones out there. Yours look distorted. Check out some of the Sarah Connor Chronicles chat sites (Fox's own wiki) and you'll find plenty to choose from. Or just go to ebay and search for Terminator 1/1 scale and you'll find all those neat termi heads.
