Exclamation Pre-Brazil F1 updates !!!

With the season ending at Interlagos and a big shake-up due in F1 next season, here are some updates before the end of the season... including an absolutely shocking first one.

1. Hamilton could well race for McLaren in Brazil. McLaren have decided not to rule out the possibility of Lewis Hamilton racing at Interlagos alongside Kimi. While speaking to the press in China, Pedro De La Rosa had voiced surprise in McLarens decision about letting him race at Shanghai and Suzuka. The chances of him getting surprised in Brazil are much less though, although he predicts that he will keep his race-seat.

2. Nico Rosberg is backing Schumacher to win the final race off the season and maybe even possibly the driver's championship. "I wouldn't write off Schumacher just yet," he said. A similar opinion has been expressed by Bernie Ecclestone.

3. F1's return to Belgium is now official; signed and sealed; not just provisional anymore. Next years race is scheduled to be held at the Spa at September 16.

4. Jenson Button is eyeing the 2007 Driver's Championship title, a title that he thinks he is ready to win next year. According to him, the ball is now in Honda's court, to come up with a winning car.

5. Red Bulls boses have promised a drastic perormance change in the RB3, the 2007 Red Bull car. Coulthard was pretty unimpresed with the current car since development work on the RB2 stopped right on from the second GP onwards, to focus on next years model. Red Bull have reassured David of a much-improved and better car for 2007, especially with Adrian Newey starting the new car from scratch. [the present RB2 design isn't Newey's]

Great stuff dude...You always pick up nice articles when it comes to F1 off-track. Here's what I make of it:

1. McLaren might stick with DLR, since Ron Dennis had stated previously that it's highly unlikely that Hamilton will get to race a Mac this year or the next.

2. Interlagos has not been realy kind to MS since the past 2 years...On both instances JPM and KR were on the podium in 1st and 2nd. But Schumaker has broken his Chinese GP jinx this year and nothing has followed script this year in F1.

3. Great news...lots of people liked the Belgian track eh?

4. Tall order, dont you think?

5. Hopefully this will make DC(and I mean David Coulthard and not Dilip Chabbria) and Mark Webber happy...

Just confirmed by McLaren, Hamilton will have to wait till 2007 to have a go at F1. De La Rosa has been confirmed as the second driver for Brazil.

Meanwhile, Ferrari test driver Badoer is convinced that Ferrari can pick up the constructor's championship as Schumacher chases the constructor's title as a leaving gift for Ferrari.

constructor's championship is very possible for schuderia but driver's championship is in the hands of alonso & only GOD can change that!!!

i m keeping my fingers crossed that GOD may drop by to watch schumi one last time ripping the F1 track.
