:haha:

You got it. I thought the Lauda one might be too obscure due to the size.

The thought did cross my mind... "Is that a latter-day Chin helmet, followed by the early days Chin helmet?"

I had too much respect for you to think it really was the case though :P.

Good ;) Otherwise I'd be forced to create a dunce's helmet as a symbol of shame for the intellectually challenged.

Actually that's an idea. Hey @Antonov.

I saw that my 5 Lauda Helmets I had for several years have been replaced with 5 Senna helmets. The first thing I thought was No not Senna, :sick: but shit happens. As you know Lauda was a hero, to me, Senna was not. At the end of the day I dont come here to check the colour of my helmet. :rofl:
Edit: Yeah noticed the new smilies and used them before they I noticed they were mentioned. Look good.

@PTRACER Minor thing I noticed is that with the Flat theme I dont get the full header on my laptop. Havnt checked on my PC which has a much larger screen. The left hand side is ok, but the right hand side is a bit trimmed.... ll I see is "...ad's F1 Gallery etc and

As long as it is not black or purple, you'll be fine :rofl:

Can you clear your cookies? It should be working.

By the way, I just added a new 'Legendary Member' rank for those with 10,000 posts...My only fear is that people will think the rank image is some kind of broken penguin, but if you recognise it, it should be fine :wink:

Yeah that has fixed it up..... I dont get the stripes on the left though (not on my laptop anyway). The laptop is only small screen though so probably just as well. Just downstairs watching the news atm.... will go upstairs and check my PC in my office, which is a 27" screen.
