Looks like a right rear suspension failure that caused the Mclaren to rip its rear wing off and spin. Oh god that makes me soooo happy. :woot: :woot:

I no im probably on my own with this, but im hoping for a Ferrari revival this year, i would like a close tight season but with Schumi to win title number 8, then retire on a high.

Should be a good season.

I can't deny Schummi is one of the best if not the best, but I'd like to see Alonso in front again and I'd also like to see Webber and Button come good.

Im happy for a tight season with lots of winners, as long as Kimi is always starting at the back that is :driving:

Massa suprised me, he was much faster than I expected, nonetheless it's nice to see the Ferraris competitive again.

I did enjoy the new format though, it combines the best bits of the old hour long sesh and the new one shot run. The burning off fuel bit seems a bit wierd but at least its only 10mins or so of that.

Schummy is good, but his going to have to a fight this year with massa i think.
Must admit, i was suprised to see Massa that quick, didnt really think he was that special.

Although im normally wrong about these things :} :} :}

I dont think Schumi has to panic just yet about Massa, dont forget they did a lot of tyre testing at this track,so Massa will have had extra running, Schumi is consistenty good on all tracks.

Think it will be a good season tho'

Oh my god, never saw a driver/team line up till just then.

Massa in a Ferrari?????????? Must be scraping the barrel due to last years poor showing.

And i take it BMW split from Williams to make own team? What engine is in the Willams now then??

One step at a time eh!!

He might be proving pretty quick so far, nut they didnt hire the guy to race, well maybe the other 20 drivers, but not the guy in front. :eyesup:

Again i might be wrong, but i dont think they did use cosworth, they used Ford in the early 80's. Quite a few teams have been cosworth powered over the years.

The general rumours over the winter seemed to suggest that the V8 Cosworth would be pretty special, Cosworth seem to have a good history of the V8 and are seen as experts in it. What its like a Williams shed though remains to be seen. A few years ago the BMW unit was the most powerful by far, yet it still couldnt drag the Williams round the track quick enough.

Correct me if wrong about the Williams-Cosworth link though.

The Teams are
Midland (were Jordan)
Toro-Rosso (were Minardi)
Super-Aguri (a succesful Japanese racing company, who compete in a host of other race series, but are going to struggle in F1 as they are using the old Arrows car)
and Mclaren-Mercedes :whistling:

think ferrari made a wise choice in massa curtainly not scrapping the barrell, he showed great driving skills al last year, particurly over a single lap. weather he can keep going over the longer distance is another question

can't wait to see cocky b0ll0cks shumacher trip up and the mclarens come good.....think i'm on my own with that one tho... :( ....didn't get to see the qualifying so don't fully understand it yet, but think it's sommat to do with the fastest ten after the first sesh doing as many laps as they want till the end to see who's fastest...is that right..????
