Is anyone meeting up to watch the inaugural race? First time an Indian team will be on the grid, I think it's a pretty special occasion. What say?

VIPER,

Thats a great idea. I am sure there would be quite a few places hosting the race weekends with large screen. If there's something organised, in blr, I would like to be part of it. I am still a "newbie" and would like to meet up with fellow BHPians in Bangalore.

We can have our own pit-stop plans for the races in Bangalore.

Hurray! The F1 season begins!

Would be very interesting this season with Kimi, Hamilton and Alonso slogging it out on the tracks!
It will be closely fought this time!

Ferrari F1 2008 Car and theTeam



Kimi Sure looks a winner



Filipe Massa is as dashing as ever, and yes he has a point to prove this season.
Massa as per me is the only guy who has a bit of M Shumi in his attitude.



Guys let me know weather i'll continue this as one long post or seperate posts on the same.

RENAULT

This is one team hungry for success.





Flavio has managed to get Alonso back into his team, with a great car to back him, Alonso sure got something to prove this season.








And not to forget Legendary Nelson Piquet's junior debuting alongside Alonso.

Yes. I am in! If we plan things early (unlike last time) we can get some places to screen it live on a big screen. Time to dust the flags!

HONDA-UK Based Team

Somehow the Honda Earth Car doesnt seem it belongs there. Rather staying rooted on tracks, it seems to be flying off track throughout the 2007 season.

Honda is pinning lots of hope on their new set up this season.





And Mr Rubens seems to forget whatever he learnt from Our all time GREAT Micheal Schumi.Honda seems to pin lot of hopes on Mr Barichello this season.






Jenson Button seems to be doing fine, but its time he comes of age this season

BMW-Sauber-based from Germany & Switzerland

This team seems to continue after the benefit they got -II place after the ouster of McLaren.

I prefer not to talk about the spy saga on this forum.

BMW has got a great car as ever.





With Robert kubica doing great behind wheels, they seem to continue their quest for the podium this season.








With Nick Heidfield the awesome twosome combination for BMW Sauber sure seems to work wonders for this team this season.
