Right behind him till date. Maybe because he was an underdog at Ferrari. Just that he's stopped performing now. I was glad when he moved to Honda in 2006, 2005 had been a great season for Honda, but sadly enough Honda has not had a good year since then.
I mostly keep an eye out till date though.

Most of the new tracks are crap. Turkey, China, Valencia are boring lifeless tracks. Abu Dhabi will probably be the same.

The result was decided by the safety car, even though Alonso deserved the win. And Bernie is constantly threatening to take Silverstone off the calendar so he can make more money by holding races in gulf countries which pay a lot more money.

The "classics" produce many more fun races consistently. Why not hold a race at Laguna Seca, San Marino or even Circuit de la Sarthe (Le Mans) to name a few?

Here's a prediction...

B.Senna to join Mclaren in 2010.

But looks like for 2009 he might join toro rosso or honda.

I'd pray he should drive for Force India.
Then, 2010 in a Honda. 2011 in a Mclaren. Amen!

As much as it's a good thing that new circuits are coming up, I also quite agree with him.

Formula one of late has lost some of its old charm, with boring lifeless tracks mentioned in the post above. Circuits like Valencia, Bahrain and now even Singapore.

I remember how hard it was for the drivers to defend their position on tracks like the Indy and even Montreal and now we have these "wannabe" circuits who want to steal all the thunder away from them.

Sometimes I seriously wonder why I still watch Formula One. If you want some REAL racing these days, you're better off with some of the newer format IRL races and even the American LeMans and GT Series (For North American viewers).

Guys, let us now discuss the Japanese GP! The action has already started at Fuji circuit....!

In the Practice session today, Timo Glock (Toyota) was the fastest on the grid, followed closely by Alonso, Hammy, Massa and Kimi!

More details here: F1 : Glock on top with Toyota - FUJI - F1-Live.com

1. Timo Glock Germany Toyota-Toyota 01:18.363
2. Fernando Alonso Spain Renault-Renault 01:18.426
3. Lewis Hamilton Britain McLaren-Mercedes 01:18.463
4. Felipe Massa Brazil Ferrari-Ferrari 01:18.491
5. Kimi Raikkonen Finland Ferrari-Ferrari 01:18.725
6. Mark Webber Australia Red Bull-Renault 01:18.734

Glock was a suprise there. Sad to see Kubica(11) and Heildfeld(19) at the bottom. If Heildfeld does get a strong finish on SUNDAY then he takes over kimi in points standing. Those Bemmers are usually strong. Seems like they've run into trouble.

BMW is generally lacklustre in the practice sessions , probably their way of hiding whatever they're upto.

My prediction for this race:
Massa
Raikkonen
Kubica

Its really good to see Renault and Alonso posting good times right from Singapore practice, the team seemed to have worked very hard for the current season itself though we are in the near end of it.
The battle for the 4th place in the constructors championship is getting hotter and hotter.

Nice practice timings. Nice to see Alonso carrying his form from the last race. He may be arrogant but high time the ex champion deserved a win.

My Prediction - Its going to be the decider of the season and one hell of a race.

Was following the second practice session on net yesterday.Commentry mentioned that the track was very severe on tyres and esply rear tyres grained a lot under dry condition.
So if the race occurs on a dry track then Mclaren,esply Hamilton,could be in a spot of bother as he is very harsh on his tyres.As a Tifosi,my wishlist is Masa\Kimi\Hamilton :-)
