havin a discussion in col yesterday about f1 - personally i think its going to be one of the most exciting ones in years with lotus cuning back in and with mikey shumacker fooling around.

i bet lotus have been preparing for the last decade - there reputation was made by there track cars if they fuck it up now there in the noodles.

I'm looking forward to it, just have no one to support now that Raikkonen's gone over to WRC Sad

Think I'll probably be supporting Red Bull

Can't wait to see Schumacher crash though, mwahaha

I find that F1 is one of the most boring types of motor racing. The only racing that happens is in the qualifying the day before. I'm with vpolo rally is a proper motor sport and I think rally drivers have much more driving skill than their F1 counterparts.

F1 for me
Ferrari fan, i reckon Alonso may have a good shot this year, but Would love Button or Vettel to win
Not sure on Massa at the moment, liked him since he was at Sauber but after his crash not sure what he will be like

I'm backing Hamilton, I reckon he's a properly good driver, considering last year in the first race he made up 17 places in a below average car.

I'm also backing Force India, 'cause they're a relatively small UK team and have improved a lot since the beginning of last season. And also Lotus, but after todays performance I don't hold much hope for them,

I never really liked Raikkonen, but I've gained a lot of respect for Massa this season - it must take some balls to get behind the wheel again after that crash.

I wasn't sure about Schumi's return, thought his driving would be a bit outdated, but he preformed quite well today.

I agree with Mim, the regulations are strangling the sport, I wanna see a return to stupidly big V12s and V16s!
