I dunno if amazon got anot since I did not check when at the time of wrting this reply.

I am sure there will be dvd/blu-ray release here since there was official release for the movie. The problem is when it is going to release and how much will it cost?!

There are few place u can DL it using Bittorrent but the problem is the whole thing is in Portuguese since the version is meant for Brazilian viewer (It was first release in Brazil and Japan first a year ago before it was release for other markets if you did not know). I do not do bt here anymore and I was nearly end up buying a Brazilian dvd release from ebay too before I knew it will be released here.  :HammerHead:

I miss Kimi.....still hoping for him to come back to the sport.
To me still the fastest natural talent in recent times.
Some stats on Kimi copied from wiki.

    In 2005 Räikkönen equalled the record of wins in a single season without winning the World Title (7), shared with four time World Champion Alain Prost, who initially set the record in 1984 and matched it in 1988, and also with Michael Schumacher, in 2006.
    In the 2005 and 2008 seasons, he equalled Michael Schumacher's record of 10 fastest race laps in a season, set in 2004.
    He currently holds the third highest record for total fastest laps at 35.
    In 2008, Räikkönen scored six consecutive fastest race laps (in Spain, Turkey, Monaco, Canada, France and Britain), equalling Alberto Ascari's record for the most consecutive fastest laps in a single season and placing him one behind Ascari's overall record of seven consecutive fastest laps (which were split across two seasons: six in 1952 and one in 1953).
    He was the first driver to win on his Ferrari debut since Nigel Mansell at the 1989 Brazilian Grand Prix and the first to win, set the fastest lap and pole position on his Ferrari debut since Juan Manuel Fangio at the 1956 Argentine Grand Prix. His replacement Fernando Alonso also won on his Ferrari debut at the 2010 Bahrain Grand Prix, setting the fastest lap on the way; however Alonso only qualified 3rd.
    Following Michael Schumacher's retirement at the end of 2006, Räikkönen was the highest paid driver in Formula One, with a reputed base salary of $51 m per year.[2]
    The 2007 Chinese Grand Prix saw Räikkönen give Scuderia Ferrari their 200th Formula One GP win, as well as their 600th podium (along with team-mate Felipe Massa who finished in 3rd).
    At the 2008 French Grand Prix Räikkönen gave Ferrari their 200th pole position.
    Räikkönen is the second driver to win the World Championship after being third in the drivers standings before the final race. Giuseppe Farina, the first F1 World Champion, was the first to do this in 1950, beating Juan Manuel Fangio by three points and Luigi Fagioli by six points. Sebastian Vettel repeated this feat in 2010, when he won the championship at the 2010 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
    Räikkönen is the third Ferrari driver after Juan Manuel Fangio and Jody Scheckter to win the world title in their first year with the team.
    Räikkönen is the third Finnish driver to win the World Championship, after Keke Rosberg and Mika Häkkinen. He is also the most successful Finnish Formula One driver in terms of points, podium finishes and fastest laps.
    Räikkönen also holds the record for the most wins in a debut year with Ferrari with 6, beating Alain Prost's previous record of 5 from 1990.

But he has no choice, Ferrari does not want him, he can't go to Merc or Mclaren, rumor said he will go to Red Bulls, but yet to see in the new season, his ego is high la, since he already climbed to the top, how to step back. Now Red Bulls is the champion, perhaps a chance for him to come back  :thumbsup:

Just my 17 cents

I love that he is a no BS guy. Just go in the car and drive the socks off the thing.
Give him a good car, no one can touch him.
I was lucky to be able to see him race during his first year with the prancing horse and he won the Malaysian GP.

Ya, Vettel has been consistant.
Even though he did not comes First in China & Canada, he is still in the lead.
I am hoping for the other drivers to win from now on so that the race for F1 champion will be like "yo-yo".

It's the team BULLeh again at the Italian GP.

It's SV's 8th victory, making him the favorite to win the overall title this season.

Looks like German's Vettel will be the youngest driver to win back to back F1 Champion again this year. The difference between his points and Alonso at second place is a massive 112 points.
Vettel is only 24 years old this year.

If you havent seen it yet.
Red Bull does know how to make a promo video!
And DC drove it all on slicks. Usually on a street track demo they do it with grooved tires.

Another dumb move by Hamilton!
Fight for position like a gentleman not by crashing into people each time.

I loved Button's performance, calm and controlled. Good thing Vettel didnt get the crown yesterday so the next race will be more interesting.

On a side note, wth happened there?

Ya, LH was behaving more "unsportsman-like".
Button was one cool cucumber, only his machine lacks the power and aggression to help him to win the race.
The schufle between the 2 photographers at the pit lane, IMHO, is to jostle for a better position to take picture of the F1. As both do not want to back down, a fight is imminent.
