the new ferrari f10 is plastered in santander sponsorship. I remember when Williams shot their cars with ad cannons just after Villeniuve won, the year they really fell off the pace.

i still hate those huge high rear wings


if anything, it looks as if they've gotten smaller (check out the last pic in the comparison) - at least from the front end view, not so much from the top. Check out how much longer the wheel base is on the new ferrari.

Just testing, but the F10 looks awfully strong in Valencia. So far so good so Alonso, impressive that he can drop into a car and lead the pack inmediately, though I guess that the fact that the cars are all so different from last year offsets that disadvantage.

watched the bobsleigh racing events.

Learnt that the italian sleighs are built by Ferrari for the last couple of years.

When Ferrari started to create the sleighs, the italian teams started to suck badly.

Think about that for a moment.

A good blog on the BBC:
Quote:
So the 2010 season, the start of [Patrick] Head's fifth decade in F1, promises to be one of the most compelling contests he's ever been involved in, stirring memories of the great days of Mansell, Prost, Piquet and Senna in the late 1980s.

His [Schumacher's] comeback, after three years in retirement, was headline news around the world. Can he still be a contender like Lance Armstrong, back in the saddle to finish third in last year's Tour de France? Will he still be as fast, and ruthless?

Or will he be made to look an ageing has-been by new A-listers like Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel who have never had to contend with him looming large in their mirrors in a race?

Schumacher will be one of four world champions on the grid who'll expect to be fighting at the front in competitive cars.

His reunion with Ross Brawn under the Mercedes takeover of last year's constructors' champions has galvanised a grid already highly charged by rivalries.

The honeymoon accord at McLaren between Hamilton and Jenson Button, and Fernando Alonso's bonhomie at Ferrari alongside Felipe Massa are about to be challenged for real. How significant is Red Bull's continuity with Vettel and Mark Webber?

Here are battles we thought we'd never see but always wished we could.

The remarkable numbers following testing on the web and the thousands who came to the tracks during the four weeks in Spain underlined the magnetism of the leading personalities and their new pairings.

In contrast to Brawn's fairytale success in 2009, with only Red Bull for championship competition, there's the prospect of Ferrari and McLaren striking back. Business as usual between the two heavyweights or battle joined in a four way scrap for the title? We're about to find out.

you know, lack of constructors in the WRC is killing the championship. Does anyone care about rally anymore?

um, the scruitineers have said it's all good. The teams have the right of appeal and Horner will probably seek clarification from the FIA. It's the same as what happened last year.
