Ferrari vs McLaren?

Post by Marco »

From testing in Bahrain it looks at though we're going to see a repeat of the Hakkinen/Schumacher era, with both Ferrari and McLaren on top. Renault look as though they are struggling, particularly with their engine being underpowered.

i've read much about the BMW potential, but i can't see all these good things on them, they're just at the second year in F1, they could do something better than the last year, but the fight will be, in my opinion, all inside Ferrari, i don't think
McLaren has reached the sufficient potential to win the championship...

yes, but you remember what they said about the last year Honda, after the winter tests...yes, they won a race, by chance, or by the good JB, but all the press was expecting much more...

and mclaren, i really like to see what hamilton will do, i'm really interested in this young driver(not just for his skin colour!!)...and about alonso...no comment :mrgreen: did u see what jean todt said about him?

FM's testing has been amazing so far. Topped the time sheets three times in a row this. Favourite for AUS GP.

How man times have I been caught up in the pre-season hype over the last 10 years? Too many...

I would say McLaren putting a black driver in the mix is more to get on the FIA's good side again after fueding over the recent years, Bernie has always wanted a black driver in F1...

I can't see LH doing much to be honest...

Karthikeyan? He's currently in A1GP for India, but is a test driver as well for Williams along with Satoru Nakajima's son.

Difference is Lewis can drive as proven by his GP2 title!

Mclaren didnt sign him to get in the good books with Bernie what a load of poo! he has been a development talent by the team for ten years! so doubt signing him now was due to any other reason other than it being his time and his turn to show his stuff!

leave the conspiracy theories for ferrari, theres a more likely hood of it being a fact ;)

Lewis just ourperformed everybody else last year - I watched quite a few of the races. It was as if he was in a completely different class.

A huge talent - one to look out for, maybe not this year but very soon
