F1 2007: Japan

Tue Sep 25, 2007 7:59 pm

Alright Guys, only 3 races left.

Its coming down to it, and I'm starting to feel that its going to be another World Championship, even though he's a cheater and doesn't deserve it.

This years race is at Fuji, and I can't access Youtube here, to post a lap run...but from what I hear Its a pretty good track for passing, which could make things interesting.

I also Expect Lewis Hamilton to come on strong and aggressive.

Your Thoughts?

Besides the usual suspects who will be fighting for the race victory, i suspect a stronger showing from BMW. I'm hoping for a Ferrari victory, preferably by Massa.

I'm probably gonna get  flamed  from some people for this, but i'm hoping that Alonso takes the drivers championship.

I believe that this could be the race that decides the championship. Not many of the drivers from my knowledge have raced at the Fuji circuit, so i'm expecting a lot of jockeying from the drivers. I'm just trying to imagine th first corner with Alonso and Hamilton side by side.

Kimi need to win this race and all remaining to have a chance for the world champion ship.

It will be the first year they race here so this track will be new for all. This will be a really excited GP.

It's not the same. Apart from the whole McLaren vs Ferrari fiasco, the Japan GP isn't going to be the same in any way. I kind of liked Suzuka and the layout of the circuit. I don't know if Fuji will ever be as interesting as Suzuka.

Well not in some time, F1 Grand Prix were held at Fuji in 1976 and 1977, but that was before many members here were born (and most F1 drivers for that matter)
Mario Andretti won in 1976 driving the unpopular Lotus 77, with James Hunt clinching the championship by 1 point from Niki Lauda.
James Hunt winning in 1977 in a McLaren M26.

Based on previous form I guess McLaren have the advantage but 30y/o data is likely not especially relevant  Wink

On a more serious note, as a Ferrari fan I'm aware that the only way Kimi or Massa can win this season is by having McLaren screw up big time, either the team and/or the drivers. Even the anti ferrari people here would appreciate the drama of getting into the last 2 races with only 3 points difference between the top 4 drivers  Big grin

btw, I read that Ferrari made an offer to Alonso for next season to replace Massa. Is this confirmed? I hope this does not happen cause I can't stand Alonso, even if he is a great driver. If this ends up happening for the first time I'm going to want one of the Ferrari cars to not win!!!

It would be interesting if that did happen, Ferrari would then have 2 drivers that would be able to supply them with
Mclaren tech information. In regards to Kimi and Alonso in Ferrari cars, Kimi would break th cars and Alonso would
moan about them. Although i am a Mclaren/Alonso fan i have come to terms with the fact that he will probably leave
the team at the end of the year (hopefully back to Renault) i would be only too happy to see Massa take his place.

They have probably gotten information out of the one driver they had. However, an engineer is probably of more value and Ferrari have poached a few of them in recent years.

I've heard it too - but with talk of 2009 (when Massa's contract runs out) with alonso taking a year out if he wins this season's championship - which looks increasingly likely....

Ok,

This threads is really hot form the very beginning. I can see we have a Mclaren camp as well as a Ferrari camp.

Although I strongly think that Kimi will be able to close the gap, he also needs to pass pointwise, and I don't really see that happen.
Mclaren are to strong for that to happen.

But on the other hand,
The only experience all drivers have from this track is through simulation., so I still think it will be an exiting race.

Dominated? yes, but barely, which makes this championship still open with only 3 races left, so I'm actually happy to see that we can still win this, although it's a long shot. But not so long ago I thought by now the chances would have been even smaller, so who knows, maybe Alonso and Hamilton will crash into eachother after all!

I would like to see Hamilton win the championship as no one has ever won the championship as a rookie, and also Alonso has already won it 2 times. Time for a different champion me thinks. However having said that, whoever wins it has earned it. Hamilton has driven a great first season, Alonso as driven well to catch up. Still, Kimi or Massa may still win. Funny things have happened before.

One things for certain, despite the whole spy saga, this season has been a joy to watch, and I can only imagine what it would have been like if the Ferrari's had been more reliable.

On to this weekend, the PS3 lap is interesting. It will be hard to watch the grandprix without being familar to the track. Damn Sony! Why can't they produce F1 07 for PS2!

Yeah, i have heard about it. I believe there is not much to read into it. Unsurprisingly, it has been denied by Massa.


Ferrari make the call and back Raikkonen
Felipe Massa has been assigned 'number two' status as Ferrari bids to win the 2007 drivers' title with his team-mate Kimi Raikkonen, according to reports.

BTW any of you guys heard this...about Alonso moving to Ferrari next season? Is it just a rumour or does it have some substance?

Yeah, i have heard about it. I believe there is not much to read into it. Unsurprisingly, it has been denied by Massa.

If he is to go anywhere, I think he would return to Renault. The whole grid is on hold at the moment regarding line up for next year, as much depends on what Alonso will do. I do not see him pair up with Ferrari/Kimi.
Alonso is used to have no competition from his team mate, and with Renault it would be like coming home for him.

If he leaves Mclaren they can take on Sutil. I really wish this guy a better seat for next year.

Crap, I agreed to go to a BBQ that starts at 1.

Very simpel,
you cancel the BBQ, or cancel your membership on A.net for life.

Sorry for this but It's too early here to use my brain properly, so just out of curiosity, at what time (Australia time that is) does the race start?

TV coverage starts here at 2pm with the race starting 2.30pm. Japan is 1hr behingd sydney/melbourbe/brisbane time.
The coverage here will go until 4pm (just as they cross the line i presume) then will switch to a rugby world cup review.

Overall, thats not to be bad considering how it normally is for us. For the European races, the TV coverage is delayed with races starting/showing anywhere from 10.30pm to midnight. The US, Canadian and Brazilian gps i think are shown live here in Australia at 3am.

Felipe Massa has been assigned 'number two' status as Ferrari bids to win the 2007 drivers' title with his team-mate Kimi Raikkonen,

That is really good. For if Massa stil try to win the champion ship it can go over Kimi then Ferrari has no chance to win that title too.

That is good, but they will never be 100% friends. Never.

We get "lucky" here with the Brazilian, US and Cnadian GP's, but with the European GP's the races start at 9am, which is not too bad, but this GP is at 00.30 ... oh well, at least it's worth it!! Big grin

I rather have it at 00:30 than at 7am, at least you can still go out after 00:30. But then again, I could just watch the race when coming back before going to bed  scratchchin . Or just watch the replay at 2pm, like normal people would Big grin

I've done that many times for the 9am races.... problem is that if you manage to stay up so late after going out there is a big chance you won't remember anything about the race after!!  Wink  drunk   champagne

Yup, except if you're watching ch 10, then all the races (except of course the Australian GP) are broadcast delayed. And we don't get to see the qualifying session...oh if only I had foxtel...

Yes you do, "check your local guides" 2:30AM Sunday after the Rugby World cup, that is for Adelaide.
Sydney at least has had qualifying for most rounds shown late Sat, early Sunday for most rounds.
