"Calm Before The Storm"

Post by Marco »

With the season less than two months away i'm already getting excited! :D Every year I feel the same and it really feels like the calm before the storm for me at the minute.

2007 is shaping up to be an absolute hoot, Alonso and Hamilton in the McLaren, Massa and Raikkonen in the Ferrari, and Renault shouldn't be discounted with new boy Heikke Kovalainen at the wheel. Ok I cant hide it anymore, IM REALLY EXCITED!!!! :lol:

I'm excited... but i just have a gut feeling that Toyota are gonna be pants again.

So not much to look forward to in my view.

But it will be an exciting season.

I'm hoping Williams can do a lot better this season, Nico's got the potential to follow in the footsteps of his flying finnish father, but whether Wurz has still got it remains to be seen, it's 10 years since he made his debut during Gerhard Berger's absences when he was ill.

It is going to be the coolest season for many years because there is no Scummi cheater to get me upset :-)

I am finally hoping for some fair play
