Misplaced case of Carrot and Stick
Ex-champ Jacques Villeneuve is realizing this fact in light of his return to form. In spite of outshining his team-mate this season , he is still not obvious choice driver to be retained for next season as per team boss Mario Thiessen.  Reminds us of maxim which we had put on this site some time back "Correction does much, but encouragement does more." Err incidentally for the same team boss L

Mclaren toys with Hamilton option
It’s a high time team bosses need to take some psychology and people skills classes. Now we have talk of Mclaren bosses planning to expedite GP2 prodigy Lewis Hamilton to F1 in season 2007. As is it the team started on wrong note by giving a destabilizing message to their current drivers start of season, now they also are dousing hopes another hopeful Garry Paffett. Hasn’t someone told them its kinda too early to make any call , its just first victory of season for Hamilton in the series which is led by Nelson Piquet Jr (by a solitary point after this weekend)

Todt’s vote of confidence for Mclaren
For a team which has been renowned for playing psychological warfare with competition, Ferrari team principal is last person whose opinion can be treated as patronizing. This comment should give hope to the Macca Fans, who are waiting eagerly to see the Silver Car beat the field to take their first win of season. Hope the climb to the top step starts from Barcelona this weekend J

Montoya’s view on Schumi status
Another of those misplaced opinion ,especially coming from person who is not sure about his own future in F1  with top team ,it is going to meet with nasty comments like “Mind your own business Juan”

V8 or V10? Does it really matter??
The drivers had mentioned about the speed of V8 car is at par with V10 after recent tests. These claims were indeed backed by Fernando Alonso's pole position lap time (1.29.819) at Nürbürgring’06 was, incredibly, actually faster than in 2005 (Nick Heidfeld, 1.30.081), despite the loss of about 200 horse power with the V8 engines.

Lovely quote that.

On the V8 VS V10, its an interesting point you made. So have the speeds really been affected that much? The reason to reduce the capacity was to reduce cornering and top speeds, but I am at a loss as to where the speed is coming from? Are the V8's more drivable?

I doubt if Hamilton would get a race seat unless he totally blows everyone away in the series he is currently racing in. Initial reports are that he is doing a good job, but will it be good enough to get him an F1 drive is to be seen.

Todt was impressed with McLarens pace and is not willing to write off Kimi despite his 4th place finish at the European GP. I believe he is giving Kimi stuble hints before his departure to Ferrari.
