So who's it gonna be? Which team will be the toughest competition to Ferrari?

I know all teams after Jag dont really count, but hey you gotta give them all a chance.

So far it's been BAR all the way, with 3 podium finishes in 4 races. Mclaren seems to be improving a bit but they've got a long way to go.

If the BARs fail in the races to come, then Williams will be ready to pounce back.

I think Williams is gonna make a comeback soon. Just like they did last year, so don't write 'em off!

I don't think any team can really challenge the domination of the Michael Schumacher - Ferrari combo. The teams that might come closest to Ferrari are Renault and BAR Honda.

If anyone had made a pre-season prediction of BAR-Honda being runners up in the championship I would have laughed at them. Butttttttttttttttttt thats my pick right now. They are also great at improving the car throughout the season...

I know McLaren are in the DUMPS rite now but wait and watch. They are the only teams commendable enough.

Renault for me. i have waited too long and too patiently for them to make a comeback into F1 and i ain't giving up on them. plus their main sponsors also happens to be my favourite brand of cigarettes.
im just a little disappointed they dumped their wide angle vee engine for a more conventional one, instead of developing the former.

For me it has to be between BAR and Renault. The Power of Dreams wasnt really working for BAR till last season it was more like "Keep Dreaming" but this seaason has been amazing . Theyve really started giving the other teams nightmares instead of dreams.

I go for Honda really become a fan of theirs and Jenson has all the things going right for hime

Well BAR is improving, and its sad to see after Jacques Villeneuve left .
I miss you Jacques.. Come Back Please! .. *your my favourite*
Anyway I think if your talking about competetion to Ferrari ..
I think it would be Minardi, coz thats the car the Ferrari's will have overtake maximum number of times in the race!
Anyway, now for real, I think BAR and Renault are just on a short stint (and I dont think they can keep it up for the remaining of the season). They've done great, and they should be happy with what they've achieved this season, but I guess few more races and it'll be it.. It wont be long b4 Williams and McLaren pull their pants back on, and get back right up there.
But I cant really see a competition to The Ferraris..
I am talking about the 2nd and 3rd spot in Constructors Championship Standings.

finally.. a renault fan.. way to go ported_head !
the new 72 is the 'safer' option..
they had to scrap the 110 degree engine.. didnt have the reliability and Jean Jacques His who was the man behind the 110 concept left renault last yr..

but they made some blistering starts with it didnt they !
hate predicting things like this.. but i hope its renault !
