McLaren confirm Kovalainen for 2009
http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/69523

Well, they confirm to Autosport, but not totally officially yet.

Still, I think that McLaren will just break Kovalainen like Ferrari did to Barrichello. Of course you must shut up while racing for the team but I wouldn't be surprised to see some negative comments from Kovalainen about McLaren when his contract ends. If he wants to, he could stay at the team for a long time, though.

well mclaren would not want to let heikki let go easily. that guy is like a test driver for hamilton and why would mclaren leave him. if they get any other driver then he might challenge hamilton for wdc.(like alonso last year)

bbc has chaged their forcast. now they say it is going to rain on sunday.

ITV viewers have the pleasure of having James Allen and Damon Hill for commentary this weekend, the ultimate dream team.

Hill last year: This is live now, not a replay, oh I beg your pardon this is a replay. When it said replay in the corner all along.

Damon Hill is good, but I wish it could be Brundle and Hill. Does James Allen never go on holiday?!

The video is good. But this track brings back memories of Adelaide GP of Australia from the early 90's. It seems to be an interesting circuit ! After a long time probably we will have a circuit who best lap time would be around 1m 48s.


Valencia lap times are expected to be around 1min37s

1m 37s ??? That's pretty quick .. I went around that track in rfactor and my best possible time was 1m 59s. Generally the F1 tracks exhibit a 15 secs difference to rfactor times !!
