Valencia looks fantastic. Like a European version of Long Beach. I hope the layout from the F3 video is the actual F1 layout, because there was one decent straight for overtaking. Hope they don´t shorten it.


Back to topic: I´m hoping for rain too, but I don´t think it will rain in the afternoon. From what I saw it would rain in the evening, if it´s going to rain.

If it rains the whole tests that some teams did in Jerez will end up nearly useless...
Plus, 2 of 4 races that McLaren won was raining. :P
So, I would like not to rain :P
Racing... Because football, basketball, volleyball... Requires ONE ball!!!

if there's rain during the race, a McLaren driver is most likely to win the Grand Prix or maybe we will see a maiden winner like Nick Heidfeld or even somebody from Toyota, Renault or Red Bull.

I listed some wet races and the winner of those:

2008 British Grand Prix - L Hamilton/McLaren-Mercedes
2008 Monaco Grand Prix - L Hamilton/McLaren-Mercedes
2007 Chinese Grand Prix - K Räikkönen/Ferrari
2007 Japanese Grand Prix - L Hamilton/McLaren-Mercedes
2007 European Grand Prix - F Alonso/McLaren-Mercedes
2006 Hungarian Grand Prix - J Button/Honda, 2nd: P de la Rosa/McLaren-Mercedes (grid: 4th)
2005 Belgian Grand Prix (not complete wet) - K Räikkönen/McLaren-Mercedes
2003 US Grand Prix - 2nd: K Räikkönen/McLaren Mercedes
2003 Brazilian Grand Prix - 2nd: K Räikkönen/McLaren-Mercedes

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.

Maybe you're right about the STR stuff, although I think Bourdais is a dead-end driver, and past his sell-by date in terms of age anyway, and I reckon also that Buemi is way experienced enough in F1 and GP2 cars.

Vettel will be on a two year (or possibly even three year) leash. Think 2011/2012 for the Vettel/Ferrari combination.


What about Heikki ??? He has signed a one year contract with Mclaren. So will Mclaren be looking to replace him ??

Heikki's the perfect teammate for Lewis.He's not as fast or consistent as Lewis,so he probably won't upset the team,but he's quick enough to help them win the constructors and hinder Ferrari

I think heiki performance is not enough for a strong team like Mclaren. He must proved that he is a good enough to stay long in Mclaren. ''hmm''

His performance was so imbalance with hamilton. Ferrari duo know are much better compared to Mclaren duo.

In terms of constructor championship, ferrari are gain more change to win. :thumbsup:
