Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

There's a BBC Radio broadcast today which you can hear on-line or on digital TV radio channels.
It's an interview with the old disgraced FIA boss Max Mosely.
BBC Radio 4's On The Ropes is on today at 10am :

Just found out that the final 3 days of testing has been moved to Barcelona from 8-11 March
Read that the final F1 testing has been extended to four days:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/moto...ne/9409391.stm


The final F1 testing session before the start of the season has been extended by an extra day. Barcelona organisers say the fourth pre-season test will be run from 8-12 March, and not end on the 11th as originally announced.
(Associated Press)

Still does not fill the gap to the first race Grrr.

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

I heard on the news just now that Jackie Stewart has been taken ill on a flight from Geneva.

Apparently, he was complaining of chest pains and has been taken to hospital in London.

Yes but I think the teams can only do four of the five days. i.e. some are doing the first four others the last four. Just means the first and last days there will be less cars potentially on the track.

I think this is a spoof photo.

Petronas are ahead of Ferrari on the grid. Somebody has been messing with the photo, surely ?

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

A final name for the F150 is announced.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/moto...ne/9415505.stm

"In order to avoid the slightest risk of anyone confusing a Formula One car with a pick-up truck... the men from Maranello have decided that the car will lose the F that precedes the number 150 and which stands for Ferrari," the Italian team said in a tongue-in-cheek posting on its website's 'Horse Whisperer' column.

"It appears that this could have caused so much confusion in the minds of the consumer across the Pond that, at the same time as losing the F, the name will be completely Italianised, replacing the English "th" with the equivalent Italian symbol"

Originally called the F150, Ferrari renamed the car the F150th Italia after Ford dropped a lawsuit, before settling on Ferrari 150 Italia on Friday

I am so glad they got this sorted. Because I (as well as the rest of the buying public I am sure) got really confused about the name. And, I did not get a nice reception when I went to my local Ferrari dealer and asked if the F150 could be fitted with a tow-bar...

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

It looks like Ferrari have done a Ferrari 150 turn. It's kind of ominous, how is it going to look if the car overheats?

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

This gives you more info: http://live.autosport.com/commentary.php/id/315

That BBC video is mainly everyone taking a stab at Macca. I hope they are wrong and get egg on thier faces Want to see JB & LH fighting out at the front from the first GP onwards.

Also hope Massa is back on form and puts Alonso in his place, same for Webber...

A lot will come down to tyre management and strategy rather than having the fastest car. But if you have a good car with lots of downforce this should reduce the wear on the tyres due to sliding etc..

Kers will add to the stress on the tyres too where balance will be difficult to keep right between the front and back brakes.

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

So is Macca in trouble or will they surprise us all come Melbourne eek!!!!

At the moment it does not look like they have a championship winning car but could be the third fastest which is not a bad start to the season. However catching up could be difficult if there are some fundamental issues with the design.
