    what we right now have in f1 is that there is one driver with a lot of talent
    and a lot of others just to make up the numbers

    Still, at least Raikkonen, Button and Montoya have talent. Drivers who pay for their place don't deserve a place in the sport - I know it's unavoidable for Minardi and Jordan/Midland but it still annoys me immensely.

    I wouldn't go that far...

    Webber, Button and Raikonnen are all extremely talented and if were put in even cars with Schumacher they would challenge dont you worry... Ferrari are so far ahead in technology its not funny... Schumacher is a great driver no question, however alot of his dominance can be put down to his car...

    if u put any one along with Schumacher in the same car he will win 70% of the time
    most of the time that he has lost is when his opp had a better car than him

    the main thing with the ferrari's is that they dont break, meaning they finish basically all the time, and with their pace and good drivers, pick up points all the time.

    Seeing as the deal was considered doubtful today until he could prove he had the financial backing, I think Neil may have a point.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    im not bothered by that, because thats where the money is now for formula one, the sport would die if it were to stay primarily in europe, with a race in aus, asia and america....

    however i agree with neil, its not good for the sport with drivers paying their way into teams, imo he will get 1 year and not be seen of again, a bit like Pantano really!

    its because of tobacco Advt being banned in Europe that more and more asian countries are getting F1 venues india is tipped to start hosting F1 from 2009 ithink most prbably it will be at Hyderbad

    and we also have the most number of races in a season this time. i think there is 19 races this time around
