Fernando has battled with his R28 car, Renault needs to improve it quickly !


Renault will probably start work on 2009 now that they realise the R28 is just as bad as the R27. They need Alonso to stay beyond this year though. Piquet will probably get replace by Romain Grosjean if he doesnt improve by the mid-season

Let's wait for Spanish GP, Renault has announced the mass-damper's return with a gain of 3 or 4 tenths / lap, and new aerodynamics development.
But I don't know if it will be enough...

So, what to say? Ferrari revival, McLaren dismantling, BMW building up, but no team can be fully satisfied - Massa's brake failure did not help.

Kimi was the best today, and all those people who bashed him for Australia should now look at Hamilton - he couldn't overtake Webber, and he kept missing the braking point pretty much each lap. Gratz for Kovalainen, Kubica and Trulli, great race.

Did you ever see a failure like that? Do I need to remind you that Kimi's car turned instantly against the wall in Monza 2007 after a black smoke like this?

Today, Briatore said that Renault will improve to grand prix of Turkey. Fernando Alonso won´t give up. Massa´s career is to think earnest if the brazilian has acting ability to drive a F1
