Exactly what I though on first impression.. :)

TV would be more of a distraction than my PC. I'm only on here while I eat a banana. I'm trying to write 3 essays by next Friday, so maybe I'll take a look on iPlayer at some point. Cheers for the heads up though.

They only have four sets of slicks for this test...

Bridgestone has supplied each team with 10 sets of slick tyres, 4 of the hard compound and 6 of the soft compound.

De la rosa to test today for Force India!

A few similarities maybe?

F1 goes retro - and I kind of like it, so far.

I´m still shocked, every time I see the BMW, so awful.
All other cars look ok so far.
I kind of like the Honda.

It's confirmed that Pedro de la Rosa will be conducting tests for a Force India Tuesday and wednesday

"It's sexy isn't it," Klien joked when asked about his opinion of car new car. "For me it's the worst looking F1 car I've ever seen. It just doesn't look like it fits, with big wings and everything. But we will get used to it and a lot of things will change.


The Kubica: "We all agree that it is not the best looking car, but fortunately from the inside it looks better than the outside."

Pardon me, but what was Mosley thinking about when he came up with these new regulations - aesthetically, F1 has gone back at least 10-15 years when it is supposed to be a radical, technologically-driven sport.

Spanish reports claim it's a done deal that De La Rosa is in the Force India for next year...
