Renault and maybe Honda will be the team to beat atleast in the first few races. McLaren are struggling right now with reliability issues like last year and it pains me to say this....even Ferrari are not exactly setting the time charts ablaze (though i really hope they prove me wrong). And just a couple of corrections to what sushubh said. Midland had taken over Jordan last yer itself but chose to retain the name for the season. Now they'll be known as MF1 Racing and will continue to use Toyota engines like last year. Toyota just provide the engines and have no other involvement in MF1. Same is the case with Honda and Super Aguri. Honda are gonna provide them with the engines and in addition to that are helping them a little with setting up the team and all and nothing else since theirs was quite a late entry.Am hoping Bridgestone get their act together this season which is looking unlikely going by the testing lap times i've seen.
I agree with u on Slater. the guy doesn't know what he's talkin abt most of the time and comes up with wild explanations and predictions and poor Chris Goodwin is left trying to rescue the situation I don't think they'll bother with Tamil commentary this time around btw.
me too agree you guys on that slater guy.Now a days star sports is more intrested to show us more ad's than f1.They are buying money from us to see thier damn channel and its full of ads (often they miss events at thier ad-time) ,they dont even show the full after race interviews.Id love to have a channel which show practice sessions too like in other countries.
Pay channels shouldn't be allowed to show ads for more than 5 minutes an hour in my opinion.And i couldn't agree more abt ESPN/Star Sports. They've got their priorities all wrong. They'd rather show a Bangladesh-Zimbabwe test match than live football matches or MotoGP races or any other sports for that matter. Even their World Cup build up and analysis shows sucked. They should've had John Dykes n co rather than bringing in ppl like Harsha Bhogle who didn't know what he was talkin abt (did improve later on) and never missed an opportunity to make references to cricket leaving the other panel members confused......and that Noel De something fool who spoke utter crap with such authority i felt like strangling him sometimes. The only competent guy on the panel was Gerry Armstrong.
