Hmm, F1 with V8s - i'm still to be convinced. Although, with the new engines (and that V10), combined with new drivers/teams etc it should be a great season of Formula One.

Just wondering whether to get sky to watch in HD?! 8)

If google made $1 everytime someone used them to find an answer to a tech support question, they would own microsoft.

You can watch the times on the FIA official web site, not as good as seeing it on TV but it helps to build a picture for the weekend.

GO GO GO Stephen you know you want to get that sky system !!!

I'll settle for NTL cable, it's ok !

I wonder how many cars will finish the first race....
I think some of the newer teams may struggle. Kimi has already hinted that the McLaren engine is (again) unreliable and Coulthard has voiced his concerns over their engine as they haven't managed a full length racing test of their yet as it keeps overheating. With Kubica and Wurz leading the practice session so far, the results could be quite unexpected!

If (!) his engine holds, my money is on Kimi.... :)
