After 2 weeks we are on a new F1 week.

As usual I vote for Ferrari and I am expecting a double from Kimi and Felipe (no matter which one wins)

Also I guess Hamilton will be ahead of Balonso.. Hamilton is a much better driver than Balonso.

I hope this weekend we will watch a great and excited GP in Kuala Lumpur....

Well I'm a big Hamilton fan from his performances in GP2 last year, but even he wouldn't think he was a better driver than Alonso.

And currently Alonso is the best driver in F1 - no contest.

But I'm thinking perhaps a Massa win on Sunday. I'm also thinking Renault will perform better too.

Malaysia is a much better guide of the season ahead than Australia. Malaysia has characteristics much more like the majority of F1 circuits than Melbourne. Whoever goes well this weekend should be in good shape for the rest of the year.

Traction control axed for 08 season

Well there we go. TC has been axed for next year. Could be interesting  silly 

I think quali will be:

Massa
Alonso
Raikkonen
Hamilton
Heidfeld
Fisichella

And the race will be:

Massa
Raikkonen
Alonso
Hamilton


This is basically all off of gut feeling right now.

Yes I'm pleased about that. Put's more skill emphasis on the driver as more mistakes will be punished. Could be more tricky for the new drivers though, as they won't be ble to overdrive and get away with it a la Kubica and Rosberg last year in future.

Two World Championships suggests otherwise - thats two more than the rest of the field put together (and while Schumacher was still around).

I suspect your view would be a little different if he was a Ferrari driver wouldn't it ?  Wink

Same and button will have the biggest advantage as he reportedly uses the lowest TC setting.

And I have to agree, Alonso is the best driver on the grid, for now. I dont think he has the raw pace to last though.

Ah but raw pace alone isn't enough. What Alonso has is quite incredible consistency. In that respect he is very like Schuey in his ability to nail quick lap after quick lap from the start to finish of the race. No one else has shown the ability to do that race after race.

How often do you see him make a mistake either? And his smoothness keeps the car from breaking down too.

In other words, like it or not - he is the complete package.


But I do think Hamilton could prove to show similar ability in time - I do hope so  Smile

How was it luck? You don't win two world championships by luck alone. Just face facts, Ferrari and Schumacher were outclassed by Renault and Alonso.

This will be good as it will separate the men from the boys. This is only possible due to the FIA introducing the common ECU which will have limited parameters for the teams to adjust.

You don't need just raw pace. Raw pace the whole distance breaks the car. You've gotta think. Know when to push, when to ease off.

I've heard this as well... But i still dont think it will help jenson as Honda are turning out to be a real let down as always. I had high hopes for them this season but i dont think they'll ever manage to even challenge the front runners...

The season so far looks like the teams are listed as follows for speed...

1. Ferrari
2. Mclaren-Mercedes
3. BMW
4. Williams
5. Renault

I was surprised by how well Super Aguri did in Australia and I hope their performance continues. I like anthony davidson and i'd love to see the B team out perform their A team...

It is not because Balonso is not a Ferrari driver; if he was in Ferrari I would also not support him. I don't like the way he acts. By the way I want to add I never told him that he is a bad driver. I don't know if there is a possibility but if you check my last year's posts you can see I've also congragulated him .

Anyway I hope this year we will witness a great season  Smile Without the races the weekends were boring

You're just trying to yank my chain right? Ferrari weren't even in the picture in 2005, if I remember correctly McLaren and Raikkonen were challenging for the title. In 2006, Renault clearly had the faster car at the beginning of the season. Ferrari caught up. If you call Schumacher's engine failure in Japan luck for Alonso, let me remind you of Alonso's engine failure in Italy which was lucky for Schumacher. Oh and what about in 2006 when Schumacher was lucky to collect a point in Hungary, despite not finishing the race, courtesy of Kubicas disqualification.

Here are some stats for you

2005:
Alonso:
Wins 7
Podiums 15
Retirements 1
DNS 1
Worst Result 11th
Total Points 133

Raikkonen:
Wins 7
Podiums 12
Retirements 2
DNS 1
Worst Result 11th
Total Points 112

Daylight

Schumacher:
Wins 1
Podiums 5
Retirements 6
Worst result 10th
Total Points 62

2006:
Alonso:
Wins 7
Podiums 14
Retirements 2
Worst Result 5th
Total Points 134

Schumacher:
Wins 7
Podiums 12
Retirements 2 (3 failed to finish Hungarian GP but still scored points)
Worst Result 8th (classified as a points scorer courtesy of Kubicas disqualification)
Total Points 121

Now, if you think that was just "luck" you're kidding yourself.

Really I don't want to argue about this. I just told what I think and it is true. In 2006 Schumi made stupid mistakes in Monaco and Hungary. In 2005 Balonso got the title because Kimi had stupid failures. You cannot reject this, check what has happened to Kimi in 2005.

We will see at the end of this season, what Balonso will do. Hamilton is 10 times better than Balonso. Just wait, in next 4-5 races it will be clear

That dosn't mean he was lucky. Renault had their act togeather, McLaren didn't. That's clear, even to blind Freddy.

Not as surprising as it may first appear. As Button pointed out (rather embarassingly for Honda thanks to the claims it was a different car) when asked about their performance relative to his, that he wasn't surprised because he put that car on Pole Position in Melbourne last year.......

And it went very well in the latter part of last season.

Quoting Kaddyuk (Reply 9):

on a similar note it will be interesting to see how Williams performs against Toyota in Malaysia. Rosberg actually had one of the drives of the race in Oz - but wasn't noticed by everybody. If he goes well again it will be a big embarassment for Toyota.

Quoting Emrecan (Reply 10):
I don't like the way he acts.

As opposed to Schuey's questionable driving ethics, his deliberate stop in Monaco Qualifying last year, or Kimi's monosyballic utterings to TV. Alonso isn't that bad.

Quoting Bill142 (Reply 11):
let me remind you of Alonso's engine failure in Italy which was lucky for Schumacher.

And that follwed the laughable disqualification in qualifying when he was alleged to have blocked Massa even though he was miles in front.

Or mass dampers banned purely after Ferrari and McLaren protested after they couldn't make theirs work so well......such a fundamental change to have to make to the car midseason.

The same could be said about Schumacher. His antics caused up roar at most races. Alonso is a great driver and has rarely ever made mistakes over the past 2 grandprix season's. He has earned his two championship titles. He won last year despite all that crap Ferrari threw at him such as 'holding' Massa up during Monza Qualifying. There is no way Alonso is just lucky.

Exactly   To me this suggests Schumacher acted WORSE than Alonso   We are all entitled to our opinions however.

Oh it is nice to see Emrecan again with the Balonso is lucky argument - it seems a while since I had this argument all last season with you.

Nobody was worse than Schumacher for dirty tactics, nobody. Alonso has skill and he doesn't particularly play dirty.

As for the race, I don't know - the result could be anything. I still think a lot of the teams true performance is an unknown quantity, so, I'll just sit back and enjoy the race on Sunday morning.

96 BA757 : Well it was for sure a great race. Hamilton impressed again, Alonso, more or less had it easy really once he got passed Massa, but none the less, stil
97 Kaddyuk : More experience? Massa has been racing in F1 long enough now to be able to fight for position... I dont think this is true. Massa and Kimi are treate
98 Post contains images Emrecan : Kaddyuk: We saw Massa's experience(!) today. He pushed and he was out. Also it is very clear that he is under pressure becuse of Kimi. Kimi is more po
99 Bill142 : Massa is quick, but he is just unrefined. He clearly took a step forward last season and he need to continue to build on that. They're starting to so
100 Emrecan : Bill142: 'Kimi was given more opportunities to win at McLaren. Massa has only been with Ferrari in a racing role for one season, he hasn't had the sam
101 Sudden : We are looking at two totally different drivers here. Massa, Hot tempered and without patient. Very fast when given the chance to be so. This made him
102 LTU932 : I don't think experience has anything to do with Massa's problems in Sepang. First, he botches the start and allows Alonso to gain an excellent lead

107 Kaddyuk : For fellipes first 3 years in F1 he was racing for Sauber and to be honest, performed on a level plain compared to Kimi's first season at sauber... K

110 Sudden : I do not know Massa one bit, to be frankly honest, but I would think that he feels intimidated by Kimi. Kimi, in my mind has the potenital to have no
111 Post contains images BA757 : In a couple of years I may just have enough experience. Having said that, the pay isn't fantastic. I shouldn't imagine £40k will get you too far in
112 Post contains images Bill142 : Think of the building you would be working in Schuey wouldn't have let it happen, and Brawn would have probably gotten the second step of the podium
