As a Ferrari fan I appreciated the way he (and Brawn) turned things around.
They were pretty hopeless for a good few years before their arrival (Ferrari
that is!)

Most of these guys on the grid have that "need for speed" I remember Gilles
Villeneuve loved t race souped up skiddoos before and during his F1 career.

Shame to hear of the passing of Jenson Buttons dad (John)

A colourful character who seemed well liked in the paddock.

Ugly. And really makes you wish tobacco sponsorship was allowed again so you don't have to watch four silver arrows year after year.

I think the image of the new planned Force India looks good. McLaren have always had quite plain boring looking cars.

Looks like McClaren will go back to red and white next year as Honda appear to be in line to be the teams main sponsor as well as their engine manufacturer.

That Mclaren one is like someone who's nose has snorted too much coke. The Ferrari one is like an elephant whose trunk is broken. I always root for ugly cars to fail ever since that old McLaren one with the wings on either side of the cockpit.

Time to dig the Formula 1 thread out.

First drivers conference in a few minutes (from this post) which I imagine will mainly be comments that go 'we don't know', 'only time on the track will only help' and 'far more will be revealed by the end of the weekend'.

Should be interesting year.
