Button's looking good, Love to see a race win for him this year.
Don't put much trust in judging form from free testing tho.

Re: Formula 1 season has started!

Oh come on
Give me some credit for the Glock / Pantano joke. Look! They're both drivers for Jordan.
At the very least, I demand a tumbleweed!

Highly impressive qualifying from Button. Might us British actually have someone to cheer for this year?

Re: Formula 1 season has started!

Yeah I know
Depressing, ain't it?
We've always got the great novelty-condom headed one to disappoint us yet again this season. Already started with a heady 12th place qualified

Re: Formula 1 season has started!

Re: Formula 1 season has started!

But if it continues like we saw at Melbourne today then 2004 will be the most boring F1 season ever.

Re: Formula 1 season has started!

The problem is with the other teams. Ferrari has a job to do and does it, its up to the others to get their game together.
Lets face it also, behind the Ferraris there was nothing going on. Why was Alonso so much faster than Trullli? If the rest were together and fighting it wouldnt have been so bad.
BTW, the Michelin runners are hoping (praying!) that the Bridgestones dont perform when it is hot......Ive got news for them, that was the main thrust of Bridgestones work over the winter!

F1 exists only for Advertising and Entertainment.

There is currently little Entertainment Value in F1 and there hasn't been for several years.

And Stuff the Advertising

The last half hour of this race had the Top 3 slowing down because the race was over as far as they were concerned.

The Team with the Most money is winning and has done so for several years.

The one engine rule has reduced the number of laps on practise days which again reduces the entertainment.


Like Rossi in the MotoGP, Schumacher is helping to destroy the Sport he dominates.
Luckily Rossi was smart enough to move to a different Team.

And even the inadequate Bernie vision TV coverage was in crappy 4:3 ratio

The most entertaining and telling comment during the Coverage (Local Australian Coverage) was
Bernie Eccelstone's comment "Passing is dangerous in F1 as the drivers aren't used to it"

Long live Formula Bore Slot car racing aka F1.
