I hope the later starting time will keep greedy Bernie happy and hope that Europe doesnt loose too much sleep from it!

It's amazing isnt it!!

What i find interesting is that F1 is "supposedly" trying to go green, or greener.
I noticed yesterday whilst watching the Moto GP that in order to light up the circuit it took 54 million whatever watts and that it could light up the Eiffel Tower 54 times!
Thats not green is it, but it is greed!!

Onya Bernie!

Kimi will win by the way! :thumbsup:
Find the line, the speed will come.

Pity. I see nothing wrong about Indian or Russian GP though...



Me too, I love Russia, but F1 loses tradition. It survived without old Spa and Nordshleife...

I can't wait for next weekend! I think that Kimi will definately win if his car is as reliable as it was with Schumi on 2002 and 2004 seasons. Hopefully Heikki and Nico will put their team mates in their limits. Waiting to see how competetitive are both BMW and Renault because both cars are a little bit mystery. I think that we will enjoy a very good start to the season especially now that the traction control is banned. More overtaking on track!! :shhh: :shhh:

btw, my 1st post on this forum!

some rain in between the race would definitely make things very exiting.....although it seems unlikely :cheezy: how about a lunatek running around the circuit to bring out the safety car :nosweat: :nosweat: :nosweat: :nosweat:

even warmer:

FRI Sunny. Very Hot. Dry. 17 km/h NW - 15% 22 38
SAT Sunny. Very Hot. Dry. 2 km/h W - 20% 20 37
SUN Sunny. Very Hot. Dry. 4 km/h NNE - 18% 19 38

and they're using soft and medium compounds this GP, with no TC... I wonder how this soft ones will look after 20 laps... :roll::
on the other hand - temperatures like this are nothing new and special during F1 events, so...

They beat the record of Kovalainen (1.11:0 min) which was set in late janury several times by half a second (1.10:5). The team released only times that were more that two seconds slower that the real ones.

this would be interesting... that's kinda what Alonso said in an interview...
honestly, I would like that - 3rd team challenging podiums on regular basis. I'm a little bit sick of this constant Ferrari/McLaren battle. I'm not sure this could happen - but I really want to be proven wrong.

I'll miss the early start, it was always something special with going up at 3.30 AM - everything dark outside - making some coffee and then put the TV on for the first race of the season... :sad:

That said,

Go Alonso! :pray: :pray: :pray: (he'll need any prayers he can get)
