It was on the autosport website but i can't seem to find it.
Although it was specially designed paint i just laughed when i read it.
I had visions of them throwing dulux paint over the car :rofll:

I'm actaully looking at doing Belgian Gp - Spa. or the european race in Spain, Valencia.
But either would only be if i'm not renewing my season ticket for Arsenal. And the only reason i would even think about not renewing would be if i was living in Spain. ;)
Only time will tell...

I just hope these cars slide round corners just like they did in the 80's

If it's not one thing it's another in Formula1...

Diffuser row grows ahead of Melbourne

The growing row over diffuser designs in Formula 1 appears to be heading for a showdown protest at the Australian Grand Prix, with the FIA saying it is now too late to resolve the matter before the start of the season.

The designs of the diffusers on the Brawn, Toyota and Williams have led to questions from rival teams, who think the trio are unfairly using a bigger diffuser than was originally intended by the regulations.

So far the FIA has said that it believes the designs are within the wording of the regulations, but the matter has moved up a gear with at least one team believed to have written to the governing body to state its belief that the design is illegal.

Now, FIA president Max Mosley has said that he thinks the matter can only be sorted out in Australia - because it is too late to organise a formal hearing before the first race.

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph on Saturday, Mosley said: "It's a very clever device and you can make a very good case for saying that it's legal and a very good case for saying that it's illegal. It's going to be difficult.

"What's actually happened is that teams are saying 'We think it's illegal for this and this reason.'

"If there had been more time before the detailed objections to the system were sent in, I would probably have sent it to the FIA Court of Appeal before Australia. And actually I have given thought to that this week. But there isn't time. It wouldn't be fair. I think the thing will probably come to some sort of a head in Australia."

The most likely outcome from the current situation is that one or more teams may choose to lodge a protest at the first race of the season - either once scrutineering has taken place on Thursday or after the finish of the race.

Mosley added: "One possibility is that all the teams agree that it is illegal, and therefore all the teams shouldn't have it from Barcelona. But then those teams who say it is legal will say 'Why should we do that?' And those that say it's illegal will say 'Why should we lose an advantage for four races?'

"And so probably what will happen is it will end up going to the stewards, who will make a decision. That will almost certainly be appealed by whichever side is disadvantaged. And then that will go to our Court of Appeal and be hammered out.

"It's not straightforward. I have an open mind on it at the moment - I can see it going either way. I really can. But somebody has to make their mind up and fortunately it's not my job."

All i can say is if it was Ferrari, McLaren or BMW, something would be sorted by now.
They've had weeks to sort this out but it's still going to be dragged into the new season. :rolleyes:

Raikkonen only lasted 2 laps before he suffered a Hydralic problem and ran off the road

Can't wait for qualifying

I'm amazed to see Mark Webber on the grid to be honest.
After his leg break and fractured shoulder it must have been a long hard winter for him.
I remember his debut and getting 2 points for Minardi at his home track. superb stuff.
Shame he didn't really kinck on after that.

if Red bull could build a car that will last race distance he might have a better shot! I don't think i'm being biased when i say he has been a bit unlucky over the years, he has had quite a few podiums taken from him because of car failure

Yeah i do agree there.
That's why he's called the 'unlucky' man of F1. haha.
I do think his chance has past him now though. shame.

God i hope Lewis can make Q2.
If he can qualify in 10th place he will be able to fuel his car to what he wants during the race.
Or if he's in the top 10 i'd be happy enough to be honest.
:pray: C'mon Lewis!
