Michael not to go to Australian Grand Prix

one comment

Albert Park will host the 2007 Formula One Grand Prix on Sunday, no F1fan can wait for the grand F1 spectacle to start. But F1 legend Michael Schumacher who was on podium last year will not even be in the pitlanes this year. Ralf Schumacher told reporters today that Michael would not be flying in for the Australian Formula One weekend and would most probably be catching it on TV. Anyway we have a circuit map of the Albert Park circuit for you. :)

Finally Super Aguri launch Car

leave a comment

Super Aguri 2007

Super Aguri launched their 2007 formula one challenger the SA07 on Wednesday. This was done after the Super Aguri car had failed many of the new stringent formula one safety tests and they had been unable to launch the car on earlier scheduled dates due to the same reason.The car is a modified version of the 2006 Honda F1 car and hence drew flak about legality under the concorde agreement between formula one teams.

Super Aguri drivers Anthony Davidson and Takuma Sato looked all set to race in their new challenger and looked fairly confident despite the fact that they have done almost zero quality testing in their new car.
Super Aguri also found last minute sponsors in Speakerbus and SS Oil.

Aston Martin not to enter F1

leave a comment

David Richards, the owner of the Prodrive formula one team , and also the owner of the Aston Martin brand has said that Aston Martin will not be entering formula one in the near future atleast. Here is what he said

“Obviously you always review things as you go along, but there are two factors against at the moment.

“Firstly, we consider at Prodrive that our route to be competitive in F1 is to partner an existing team – frankly, I don’t have the patience to set up a team from scratch and flog around at the back of the grid for five years.

“And as far as Aston Martin is concerned, it is a product that is still in its infancy. It is still developing as a brand.

“There is a great range of cars, but there is a long way to go before it is in a place where an involvement in F1 could benefit the brand.

Bernie proposes change in F1 point structure

leave a comment

The man everyone loves to hate in F1, FIA topshot Bernie Ecclestone has gone on record to say that he will be proposing a change in the points structure from the 2008 formula one season.

“With second place getting eight points it is not right that the winner takes only 10,” said Ecclestone

“For 2008 I will propose a change. The guy who wins more should be champion.”

Ironically , F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone is himself the man behind the current point system. The current point system was introduced in 2003, and was a part of many decisions taken in haste to cut the gap between Ferrari and the other teams. Bernie now wants to change the very system he pioneered, F1 really needs some smart brains. Initially in 2002, the system was 10 for first and 6 championship points for second.
