BMW is going to rock this time...

Why haven't I heard of these new drivers? - Nick Heidfeld and Antonio Pizzonia

We still have Schumi no?

I dunno about rock...pizzonia was BMW's backup driver and did not do so well covering for Schumi last year. Heidfeld is a solid driver but he doesnt have the technicial skill or experience to really be on the podium.

Huge F1 fan here. Ferrari is going to dominate again. Ralf did jack sh*t for Williams anyway. JPM and Kimi are gonna get into a pissing match and screw each other over.

that is if Kimi can keep his pecker in his pants...
apparently he was drunk of his a$$ at a strip club in England (his birthday party, IIRC) and was seen laying on the floor wanking away, scaring the other costumers!

It's ok... BMW kills the Deutch Touring Masters

I think Audi should get back in the WRC...

I'm somewhat of a F1 fan. Yeah, Ferrari is gonna tear up the track again. Hope BMW Team got something under their sleeves.

Pizzonia scored 6 points in 4 races. He only finished 3 because his gearbox failed at Spa. But at Spa he was in 3rd with 12 laps to go when his gearbox died. I'd say that's pretty damn good for a backup driver.

German - Finished 7th, 2 pts
Hungarian - Finished 7th, 2 pts
Belgian - gearbox failure, 0 pts
Italian - Finished 7th, 2 pts

I think you might be thinking of Marc Gene. He sucked.

I'm glad RS is gone. He did nothing for the team and is pretty mediocre. JPM is perhaps the biggest prick in F1 so I'm glad he's gone too. It'll be a bit of a rebuilding year for Williams.BMW. Last year sucked because the walrus turned out to be a dud.

bmw williams all the way. yeah, i could'nt wait for ralf to leave. i'm happy with the driver selection especially pizzonia. i'm somewhat skeptical about heifeld though. i think this year is gonna be better than the last. the team have learned quite alot from last year, so i'm hoping they improve on the weaknesses this time.

Huge F1 fan. Couple of buddies and myself go to Montreal for the F1 race every year. Have a great time. Ralf was horrible(did not realize the object of the race was to overtake the car in front). JPM was good in that he always tried to overtake. Our lousy car did not help last year(blame the funky nose-maybe bangle designed it). Toyota is spending 1 billion a year to catch up with the major players. Think Ferrari is going to crush everyone again. McLaren does have the best drivers though(lousy engines and this year an engine has to last 2 races). Think Honda is getting back into form. Watch them(plus they have a huge party outside Jacque Villeneuve's club in montreal).
