Do they really run less than 100 octane? Crazy.....

Looks wild, let's hope montoya and kimmi can at least compete with the reds.

don't get too excited, new reg's this year means a lot more kms have to be done by the engine and I don't expect our West friends to have got over all their reliability gremlins from the last few years. Ferrari will win again this year and next (assuming uber sportsman Herr Schumacher doesn't retire).

There, I've said it!! :P

Hopefully mclaren and williams will step up to the plate this year and the new car is doing well. im a mclaren fan but would love to see Mark Webber win his first race in Australia!

4. Fernando Alonso, Renault (Michelin), 1:10.309
5. Takuma Sato, BAR (Michelin), 1:10.477
6. Nick Heidfeld, Williams (Michelin), 1:10.499
7. Giancarlo Fisichella, Renault (Michelin), 1:10.501
8. Michael Schumacher, Ferrari (Bridgestone), 1:10.887
9. Mark Webber, Williams (Michelin), 1:11.118

I just hate seeing those gay f**k that seem to only want to follow the team thats winning on the day. Cause I remember I use to see a lot of McLaren team supporter shirts being worn in McLarens heyday. But now I only ever see is a lot of those new Red Ferrari Shirts :evil:
