Don't be silly, Nando will be on the grid and pointing in the right direction.

Faith in a driver?

McLarens troubles we know about but those stats don't make great reading for Red Bull either.

It's going to be a long two weeks. I'd better pop over to the chat room and take the white sheets off of the furniture and spruce the place up.

So much to do..... So little time.

Maybe the Honda engine is designed to run at full chat and McLaren have made a boo boo by not turning the engine right up and it is the running it at lower power that has caused all the problems, personally I think they had nothing to lose by saying **** it crank it up and lets see what happens....

I still find the entire notion of tokens to be absurd. It virtually guarantees that any advantage enjoyed by a team at the beginning of a season will remain unchanged throughout the entire course of the year. Honda will, in all probability, be tail-end-Charlie all season long, with zero prospect of closing the gap.

How entertaining will that be to watch?

I watch auto racing to see drivers and teams all vying for victory. Monopolies bore me.

I thought 2002 was boring, as was last year. I just hope that this year is more competitive.
