Mclaren Rules Bahrain
By Sam Cooper - February 24 2007

Britain’s Lewis Hamilton and Spain’s reigning double world champion Fernando Alonso completed Mclarens testing work completing 126 laps in total. Alonso finished 1st while the rookie (Hamilton) finished 2nd trailing behind Alonso by a tenth of a second.

The Woking based squad finished their week by finishing on top. This brings heaps of confidence to the team and its fans, this test being penultimate three day test before the season starts on March 18th.

Fernando Alonso was so dominant over the rest of the field that he finished the day 0.8 seconds ahead of the next non Mclaren runner, Felipe Massa and Kimi Räikkönen. Although Fernando finished 1st. I believe that he was running on low fuel. However if he had a decent amount of fuel on board Mclarens rivals and any other team should be running scared. If the car is truly this fast and this reliable their could either be a triple world champion on the grid, the only rookie f1 champion on it.

Today’s complete testing times are shown below.

So, what do you think about it?


Honda's new car livery for the 2007 season features no sponsor logos, the London newspaper Daily Telegraph reported on Saturday.

After the RA107 tested this winter in all black colours, the Japanese squad will reveal the definitive paint job - rumoured to be green or take images from Google Earth - on Monday at London's Natural History Museum.

It will reflect Honda's ‘commitment to raising environmental awareness’ and is the brainchild of British pop mogul Simon Fuller's company 19 Entertainment, the newspaper said.

Sponsors will still appear on the drivers' overalls and in the garages, but it is already being suggested that the no-logo approach is a measure of Honda's failure to attract a decent replacement for departed title sponsor Lucky Strike.

With a new aerodynamic package, Honda's Jenson Button was third quickest in Bahrain testing on Friday.
