I am interested!!! I stayed up and watched the qualifying live!!

Well if nothing else due to the rain mixing up the grid positions at least this first race will be full of action. We probably won't get any indication of how the new rules are affecting the GP though, will probably be a couple of race3s before that can be judged. I think that if the cars prove reliable we should have a good race, lots to be proved and egos to be satisfied in the first outing for the drivers at the new teams. Maybe this year Ferrari will not have it all their own way despite still having the best driver in the world and one of the biggest budgets?

Ha ha @ Shumacher :D :twisted:
Indeed, its about time he had some bad luck but it will make for an interesting race..although there is no way of knowing the standard of the cars this year I ma sure he will have more speed and grip than many infront so some good racing may be on the cards. [smilie=t:
