    F1 - Better or still undecided ???

    It's been two races now, very interesting.

    Do you reckon that the Ferrari's have relied on car technology far too much...that's why they are struggling now ?

    Whereas the other teams/drivers have had to rely on driver talent a little more so are doing better ?

    Also the new qualifying and the one set of tyres is really making a difference.

    I think it's much better and more exciting.


    Views??

    Yup - the new car will make a difference - They interview the general director for ferrai racing yesterday and he seems quietly confident - infact he didn't really seem worried at all

    The existing Ferrari is running last years chassis and engine, with afew tweaks to get it past the regulations now enforced. The new car will be on a par, if not better than the current other marques

    I missed the Malaysian Grand Prix due to watching the Clipsal 500 V8 Supercar race at Adelaide much more exciting

    to be honest i didnt think much of the Australian Grand Prix, ok the new rules put bit more of an edge on the race but it still lacks the Overtaking and battles they had during the 90's... Everyone is concentrating on conserving the Engine for the next race...


    I think i'll stick to watching the V8 and Btcc tintops from now on
