I'll talk about Hamilton too. Because of Kovalainen's engine failure in Fuji, some medias fear that Hamilton's engine will let go on the race. Judging by what Schumacher could do in 2006 and what Hamilton did in 2007, is it better to change the engine and take the 10 place penalty? Because if the engine lets go during the race, Hamilton will lose everything!

Good point, Brazil is easy (well you know what I mean) to overtake at providing you haven't lost chunks of time to start with.

I doubt that.McLaren and Mercedes will step in if his engine is in severe danger of blowing up.Also after they threw away the title last year and with a 7 point lead they won't take any risks.And also if its a wet race you use the engine left,so I doubt Lewis will blow an engine in the race.

Yes you're right, but we can't be sure at 100% that Hamilton's engine will not brake during the race. In my opinion, it would be safer to change the engine. But Hamilton would have a lot more problem in the fill at the start...

Other point. If there is a "racing incident" between Massa and Kovalainen or between Hamilton and Raikkonen and both title contenders retired, what happened?

Cool! That's a really good livery,like Stewart,Super Aguri and the Red Bull logo put into one.And not a bad charity awareness mechanism either.

I saw the images today. The car stayed very beautiful.
But don't have any message for Coulthard on car. I search, I search and I don't finding nothing...

I'm surprised they managed to get the team bosses to ignore/make an exception of the two liveries rule for charitable causes. Which is certainly no bad thing.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

@ TA
That's the last thing they could do for DC, it shows how respectfull the grid is these days :D . It's a good sign. Besides all this it's a great idea from Red Bull Racing! Maybe it was better to have the car in the colours of his helmet, but maybe that was too much 'Williams-like'. But anyway; I like it :thumbsup: Can't wait to see the car in action :D
