After seeing qually today, I'm begininng to wonder....

You probably missed the previous GP's this season. Today they finally showed some promise in terms of pace.

Re: Ferrari to withdraw from F1?

Yes, the car is better, but lets see how much fuel is in the tank... regarding Kimi's strategy - that was again the same mistake like Massa's strategy failure in Australia.

Of course, silly me. The rabbit ear antennae on my PC only pic up the European races.

Ferrari is the most experienced team in F1. For them to have left a car stuck in Q1 in Malaysia because they couldn't be bothered out of complacency/apathy to run it again is inexcusable. It's not the kind of mistake that a top tier team makes. The fact that they've now done it again this season says much more about the state of the team than a bit of pace in practice.

Any one think this would have happened even once if Brawn had replaced Todt?

Formula 1 is already saved, it will be no new league, or how they called "Formula New"! Read the new news! And Mosley will not candidate as a FIA President again! So in a couple of months he is out! Also interesting that the Budget will be not limited to 45 mil. EURO's next year... but the main target will be to spend less money in the future!

i don't think ferrari's doing good this season though. they're way behind their usual stat. Kimi & Felipe aren't doing so good as well.

hey, aren't you guys interested with formula anymore?

the return of Michael Schumacher to the scene could probably help bring life to Formula 1. ain't Raikkonen and Hamilton enough? i know they're not doing so good in the race.
