Hi All
Is anyone on here an F1 fan?
What are your thoughts/predictions for this season?
I'm team McLaren - looking forward to seeing if Jenson Button can replicate last seasons opening races or if he'll be overshadowed by the natural talent of Schumi and Lewis.

A lot will be the technical "duel" between Ross Braun & Schumi

I`m a huge fan of Ross Brawn & his team.It`s going to be very interesting over the 1st 3 races to see how thing develop.
I know Ferrarri have been quick out of "the box" & rumors of a "b" spec car for them could be a bluff,not sure on that one considering their times so far.
I`m not reading too much into the testing times as the real truth will come out in the 1st real Qualifying at the 1st race.
I do hope JB gets on well at McClaren & is not given 2nd best to LH.
The new teams could also make things interesting mid field & beyond.
Nice to see the Lotus name back in too.

Marshal, that overtake is legendary!

I hope this season produces some really exciting racing, we've had a few seasons with the odd cracker but overall the level of close racing had diminished due to the over reliance on aero grip. Now they've started to reduce the aero effect we should hopefully get closer racing.

Wish I was going to Silverstone this year!!

i work for redbull racing F1 team, so 100% behind Vettel and Webber, but as an outside bet i think Alonso could be one to watch in his new car.

To infinity and beyond

On paper should be a classic season. plenty of drivers who can win a race.

I'm more interested to see if Audi can get one back on Peugeot
We're the lucky one's we have the whole Mansell clan @ Le Mans this year in the same car.I can hear allthe excuses already

Just got off phone & result is I`m off the the Gp this weekend.
Fly out Saturday morning & return Monday morning.
When I told the wife,she went mad,she reminded me it was Mother`s day & we were supposed to be going to see her Mother .Then I told her that the invite was for her too & now she`s quickly making peace with her Mum & telling her we won`t be seeing her on Sunday.
Be thinking of you all
