Hey everyone

I was watching the F1 grand prix and I spotted a AMD sticker on Michael Schumacher helmet and also on his back wing.

Is this a recent development or am I just slow?

You're slow.. the deal is over a year old AFAIK, but you have a sharp eye, as the stickers are pretty small :) 

New development is they will also supply and sponsor Sauber.

It's not that the stickers are small it's that the ferrari's are so fast :-)

There was more time to check out the sponsor messages on Ralph's car, after he crashed into the wall with 300 kph, he only had a couple of bruises though.

Those are VERY safe cars indeed. If I try hitting a wall at top speed with my car, I'm sure that I would not be as lucky.

Or a McLaren F1 (you know, like Mr Bean had, a 3 seat sports car). I once saw a (legal) chrash test of that one; while in a normal car you'd be lucky to step out alive with no major injuries, the Mclaren could actually be driven to the dealer for repairs. There was barely any damage at all.

Oh, just found a picture! : <A HREF="http://www.wreckedexotics.com/mclaren/mclaren_070702_01..." target="_new">http://www.wreckedexotics.com/mclaren/mclaren_070702_01...;/A>
