Lewis Hamilton’s SECRET LETTER to Barack Obama!!

with 6 comments

Hello Mr. Obama,

Congratulations on your victory Mr. Obama. Though I was really sad for Sarah Palin (read eye candy!!) loosing out on Vice Prez, I am happy that you have become the most powerful person of the planet. Americans now atleast have someone to show off their dislike for racism. But hey, you know me..isn’t it??

I am Lewis. Lewis Hamilton.

An F1 driver!! A world champion!! Shit…how stupid of me. You Americans don’t know that F1 stands for Formula 1…(I’ll remember it the next time). And just to prompt you to further read my letter, have a look at the picture below….I even resemble you!! OMG !!

Obama-Lewis-Barack-Hamliton

But unlike you, I had to work really hard for my world championship. That Massa guy, almost had it this time. Had it not been for Toyota’s Timo Glock, I would have again lost it by 1 point. God bless Timo. And the funny part is, that last year, I lost the world championship by 1 point (I know, its really sad) and this year, I won it by 1 point. But I do feel bad for Massa. The guy must be really frustrated. This time last year Felipe Massa was playing the supporting role as Ferrari team mate Kimi Raikkonen took the 2007 drivers’ championship. On Sunday at Interlagos the roles were reversed, Massa almost snatched it from me. I swear, Massa is no longer the Ferrari number 2. He is now as strong as Kimi.

And just read what Massa had to say after the race –

“It was an exciting day. We did everything to perfection and we almost managed to pull it off. Then, as I crossed the line, race engineer Rob Smedley told me that Hamilton had finished fifth and therefore he took the title by one point. Sport is like this and one has to accept that. Congratulations to Lewis: whoever gets the most points deserves the title.”

Now that’s a true gentleman. Just like us…the Britishers. Oops…Massa is a Brazilian (American). ;-)

But your job is not as adrenaline pumping as mine. You have 4 years to run your country. I just have some hours to run a good race. Talking of adrenaline, how can I forget Fernando Alonso? The Spanish Bull overflowing with adrenaline. I am 100% sure that this guy is going to win the next year’s championship and have me kneeling down in front of him. But lets be a bit optimistic and cross the bridge when it comes.

So what about Palin? Can’t you persuade or force her to join you as a democrat? I swear you will have a lot of glamour in your armory. And we all know the power of glamour. :-) And please, do something about the economic mess that your predecessor George Bush has created. I am no expert in economy but theses guys from BBC just keep on saying that world is in a recession, USA’s economy has come to an end and ‘Queen knows what not’.

What else…?? I think I will now spend some more time with my new girlfriend and my autobiography. I have to complete it soon or I’ll become too old.

Till then, cheers to ‘our colored victory.’

Yours

Lewis

World’s 2nd Fastest Car

leave a comment »

You must be thinking that why am I talking about the 2nd fastest and not the fastest car in the world? The reason is that I like Veyron much more than the SSC Ultimate Aero (the fastest one) and because Veyron is just in its own class…

Bugatti Veyron…isn’t it beautiful??

Bugatti Veyron - World's 2nd Fastest Car

Even when Veyron is at a standstill, the car’s enormous power is intuitive.

With its classic look, the large radiator grill – adorned with the hand-enameled Bugatti emblem – represents the ultimate grandness of the Veyron. With its 16-cylinders, it is definitely the most sophisticated production vehicle of all times.
And you won’t believe, it has a total of 1001 HP!!! Awesome… and yes…it has a top speed of almost 408 km/h!!

One more really cool thing about Veyron is that its ceramic brakes slow it down faster than it can accelerate. While it takes this exceptional car only 2.5 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h, it needs even less time – a mere 2.3 seconds – to come to a standstill from 100. The car documents state a maximum velocity of 407 km/h, but as I said, it has already clocked an amazing 408.47km/h on April 19, 2005.

Veyron operates in 3 of the modes. In standard mode, used for speeds up to 220 km/h, the rear spoiler system is completely retracted. In handling mode, used at higher velocities, the vehicles nose is pulled down and the monumental rear spoiler deployed. This produces an additional 350 kg of downforce without compromising the Veyron’s exceptional turn dynamics. And then there is the top speed mode for velocities beyond 375 km/h, which is activated before the engine is started. At top speed mode the front diffuser flaps are shut to make the underbody absolutely level, and the spoiler is completely aligned with the chassis, forming a tearing edge – thus, the Veyron is perfectly adapted for top velocities.

Topspeed key

Topspeed key (The key which everyone wants to have in his car)For speeds beyond 375 km/h, drivers need to activate this top speed key.

Oh…I forgot to tell….it is also the most expensive production car available at a price of a eye popping 1.1 million euros.

A really special version of Veyron is Pur Sang. With no body finishing and reveals its pure aluminum carbon fibre body. And just think about the number of radiators your car have?? One?..two?….The Bugatti Veyron has a total of 10 radiators!!

  • 3 radiators for the engine cooling system.
  • 1 heat exchanger for the air-to-liquid intercoolers.
  • 2 for the air conditioning system.
  • 1 transmission oil radiator.
  • 1 differential oil radiator.
  • 1 engine oil radiator.
  • 1 hydraulic oil radiator for the spoiler

The Veyron has the greatest acceleration of any production car to date, reaching 60 mph (97 km/h) from a standstill in 2.46 seconds. It reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) in approximately 2.5 seconds

Lets talk about this marvel’s fuel consumption. The Veyron consumes more fuel than any other production car, using 40.4 L/100 km in city driving. At full throttle, it uses more than 115 L/100 km (2.46 mpg imp/2.05 mpg US), which would empty its 100 L fuel tank in just 12 minutes 46 seconds.

Gordan Murray, designer of the McLaren F1 declared that, “The braking is phenomenal. … And the primary ride and body control are impressive too” and “It’s a huge achievement.” [He was very critical of the Veyron earlier].

So…??  …interested in buying??
