leave a comment

The five red lights illuminate and then go out to signal the start of the 2007 Australian Grand Prix and the 2007 Formula One season is go-go-go ! And Kimi Raikonnen took the lead and kept the lead throughtout the race.

Kimi Raikonnen

Kimi Raikkonen won the 2007 Australian Grand Prix with relative ease today in what was his first race and victory with the Scarlet Ferrari. Team-mate Felipe Massa came sixth desperately trying to overtake Fisichella in his Renault but not being able to do so till the chequered flag. Current world champion Fernando Alonso came second behind Kimi to make a solid start to his F1 season. Lewis Hamilton – the new McLaren kid on the block came third to make it a McLaren 2-3. The Renault’s performance was lacklustre again with Fisichella coming 5th and rookie Heiki Kovalainen came 10th

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.
