It was actually a reasonable film. I enjoyed it anyway, harmless bit of fluff to while away the hours. Much like this thread

I believe the idea is that if you reach some type of crossroads in your life (here in the US, we would say "fork in the road") and you can go one way or another. The choice might even seem inconsequential at that time, but might have a large impact that is only knowable when looking back upon it.

Somehow I assume the sliding door part is that you pick one door vs. another. Or maybe it really is from that Gwyneth Paltrow movie.

I have never heard the expression once before. It definitely is not commonly used. It must be from the movie.
It is interesting to watch the chick flick fans "coming out" though.

Unfortunately this particular user cannot fathom that you can actually have a bit of light-hearted fun on this forum that doesn't involve hating on another driver.

Flav, recently kicked out of the sport, would not have let Webber sign with a Renault team that he was just forced to leave.

Flav being Flav, also meant he would have not wanted two of his clients/drivers on the same team (unless that other driver was named Trulli) so RB would have kept SV to pair with Alonso.

so RB, knowing they were getting Alonso for 2010 would not have objected to Schumi's special test in 2009 to replace Massa and if Schumi had finished out the 2009 season then he would have been retained by Ferrari for 2010.

thus, mainly because Webber to Renault would have been too good to be true then Webber would have slotted into the higher paying Merc seat!

Flav of course would win out again in the end by securing another ridiculously large and unwarranted contract for Trulli as his parting shot to Renault/Lotus!

and once again Flav cheats us of the Webber to Renault dream!

Fair point, then maybe Webber moves to Mercedes in 2010 instead of Schumacher, taking MSC's credit for helping to build Mercedes into the world beaters they are today!

My god these things are real pub anoraky stuff. Love it!

My take starting in 2003....
Montoya wins the 03 title despite Ferrari whinging about tyres and decides to stay at Williams instead of signing for McLaren...

Williams decide not to develop a walrus nose and stick with developing the fw25 base concept further and Montoya again challenges for the 04 title but cannot halt the Ferrari.

DC gets a stay of execution at McLaren until the end of '05 before Hamilton gets signed alongside Kimi who rejects an offer from Ferrari because.... McLaren erase reliability issues of the MP4/20 which goes onto blitz the field 1-2 in 2006

Kubica has signed to replace the retiring Schumacher alongside Massa and runs the McLaren's close in a great season long scrap for 3rd with JPM.

Vettel is promoted to Williams BMW alongside Montoya in 2007 who make another enormous effort with engines to get back to the front....

At the end of 2008, Honda streamline their operations and decide to support the more cost effective Super Aguri effort with it's strange and interesting 'double diffuser' concept.... This leads to an amazing 2009 season....with Button and Davidson finishing 1-2 in the title race.

Also in '09 Brendon Hartley moves up from Toro Rosso to partner Webber at Red Bull going on to win his first title in 2011. Webber then retires and in comes Alonso after Renault decide to pull the plug....

Love it! The 2003 season was filled with so many 'what if' moments. Fantastic season.

Yes, I would have rather seen that end to the 2003 season, instead of the Williams and McLaren momentum being spoiled by sore losers

I don't have time to research all of the specifics to make it sound good, but in general...

* Around 2008 +/- Budget caps are put in place and Ferrari's veto is struck down in the courts.
* Ferrari and a few other manufactures leave the sport (somewhat in disagreement with caps, and loss of veto, some due to recession and it is just good timing to get out)
* Ferrari and someone else (maybe Renault in a post crash gate scenario) create a breakaway series.
* Cosworth and at least one other independent engine supplier create customer engines for the main F1 series
* Teams like McLaren, Williams, etc. become backbone for F1 which becomes successful post large manufacture involvement.
* Budget caps work. Smaller teams join and survive.
* Break away manufacture series eventually fails due to various problems (they fight amongst themselves on how to run the series, small number of teams, top drivers don't migrate to the series, races don't actually generate good racing, etc.)

* Manufacturers gradually come crawling back into F1 to gain exposure to the good racing and healthy fan base.
