Next year, Formula 1 is moving to a 10-lap individual time attack format
Possibly, although look at how Toro Rosso are going compared to Red Bull. You cant match a chassis and engine optimised for each other.

Possible last years for Barrichello, Coulthard and Fisichella in 2008.

The grid isn't really going to change that much from now and next I think.

He has been doing great (I actually don't even think this is me being biased) and performing consistently well.

I think both Super Aguri men are doing a very good job this year, i don't think Aguri san will find good enough drivers to justify replacing them, and i don't think any current drivers are going to go to super aguri :P

DC stays at RBR for 2008

Jenson and Rubens remain at Honda

I think that 2008 will be an important year, though not necessarily rules-wise
France and USA are dropped from the calendar to be replaced by Singapore and Valencia. What effect will this have? Will more follow?

No i think sato will stay :p he's doing a good Job

Alonso's short relationship with McLaren in turmoil
Fernando Alonso, who is at daggers drawn with his McLaren co-driver Lewis Hamilton, has been told by boss Ron Dennis that he can leave McLaren at the end of the season, a report claimed on Tuesday.

The double world champion's future is up in the air as his relationship with Hamilton broke down at the Hungarian Grand Prix last weekend when he was penalised for his part in trying to prevent the Briton from starting in pole.

The Times quoted what the paper described as a 'well-placed' source as confirming Alonso may quit the team two years ahead of schedule.

"My understanding is that he's been told he can go because they're so fed up with him. Ron is just very pissed off with both of them," the unnamed source said.


These comments follow Alonso's confirmation that his future at the British team was uncertain. The unsettled Spaniard, asked by sports daily Marca if he was planning to stay with McLaren, replied: "I don't know."

Two likely destinations for Alonso if he were to sever his ties with McLaren are Renault, with whom he won his two world titles, and BMW, who are yet to confirm Nick Heidfeld for 2008.
