It`s only a feeling from me that Sutil can beat Albers
I think also that Heikki Kovalainen beats Fisicella.

You can never be 100% sure but Spyker may actually be going places.
They are owned by two seriously rich Dutch entrepreneurs who are willing to take the team places. They are planning a long-term strategy for the team which is linked to Ferrari chassis and engines for 2008 and beyond, possibly with Ferrari engines in their road cars as well. They already have Mike Gascoyne and a host of smaller sponsors.

While disappointed by both ING and Philips spurning the team, Spyker allegedly has enough operating cash. They are looking for a title sponsor but especially one willing to pay sufficiently to enable the team to move up the grid. Currently, they can only get back-of-the-grid budgets from potential sponsors.

Financially speaking, it makes more sense for them to keep the title sponsorship slot open and hope to sign a long-term sponsor later on the back of some good results than take the first offer and never be able to make it to the next level. As stated, they can afford to wait.

As to the lack of testing, the new car is not ready yet (and won’t be until February). Spyker doesn’t think it would make much sense to spend the money to modify their 2006 Spyker-Toyota to run with a Ferrari engine to test tyres while the new 2007 Spyker-Ferrari may have very different characteristics.

This strategy of only signing a major title sponsor instead of just anybody waving a bag of money also explains why Spyker is opposed to customer chassis for 2007. They need to score some good results this year to get that big sponsor, something which could be difficult if Aguri and Toro Rossa are allowed to run high-grade customer chassis already!

STR are going to have the new RBR chassis although they are stuffed if they use the same cooling as the Renault and Ferrari engines have completely different cooling

i read an article on f1racing.net that hamilton thinks that sutil will give a wake up call to Albers!! to me thats a huge call bacause Albers is quick but doesnt have a good car! most people dont now how albers can go in a good car!its just like sato he was in a honda and was up the front with button but then went into a bad car like a spyker and albers outclassed sato through the hole season...i really think hamilton is wrong about saying that sutil will beat albers. i remember in 2005 when albers signed to minardi, john todt said to albers if u can be conpeditive in DTM u can be compeditive in F1... and albers was the leader all season in 2003 DTM season untill the last race he lost the championship by 4 points to bernard shenieder! he was unlucky abt knocked him off the road!drooped to the back at hockemhien in Germany!

well having said that not a lot of people know more about sutil's driving than hamilton himself.

i personally think it'll be pretty equal between them. all they need is a decent car.

I voted Adrian too. I think that Lewis has a point, Adrian will for sure ut some pressure on Chris. And I think that in the beginning of the season Chris might be faster, but I think Adrian will be better the 2nd half and beat Chris.

I have to admid that I'm just like Wen, part of the Dutch "Robert camp" I'm not a big Chris fan at all. And I like Adrian a lot....so I really hope he'll beat Chris, but if he doesn't I won't cry because of that, he's still young after all. It will be his rookie year, but I sure hope he's gonna kick some ass.
