    is it by any chance a Madeeeeeena? (as the typical brits pronounce it?)

    It's MOD - E(eh) - NA


    Same silly pronunciation as EIBITHA???

    It took me 3 hours to understand that they were talking about IBIZA!

    It's EB-E-Z-A there is no "th" in it is a "Z" (zed as in ZOO) you don't say I'm of to the Thoo!

    OK, so how do YOU pronounce "Scuderia" ? I thought everybody pronounced it the same until I watched a certain video recording last month

    My missus is from Milan so I know how she pronounces it and thus how I do, but there again she keeps saying most people don't even pronounce Ferrari correctly - fussy ***** !!

    If they do a 435 to follow the 430 will we call it the 4-35 or 4-3-5?

    Easy, 4-3-5 if you are English, or 4-35 if you are American, or is it 4-35 if you are English and 4 -3-5 if you are American. Or Italian, or Japanese. Maybe that is why they decided to call it a California instead of a 1-4-9 to save all the linguistic issues.

    Once adain it should read Scoo (as in scooby doo) der (There in a German accent) ee - a

    so it's scoodereea
