It’s been a while since I had an F1 post, but then the off season is never terribly interesting there is always some rumour or other, not a huge amount of news and the odd award. So here’s a quick round up.
First off the pre-season rumours of Silverstone’s demise from the calendar are back, (did they ever go away?) this time in some sort of weird Grand Prix swap with the French??? and shure lets fire in the threat of Donnington for good measure
David Richards is a busy man, what with running prodrive, Aston Martin’s racing program, getting his Formula 1 team on it’s feet and now, apparently, he’s trying to buy Aston Martin? hmmm here’s a thought Aston Martin F1 Vantage 2008.
Over in Ferrari land, well they are not missing Michael or both there drivers would like us to believe. It’s only fair to wonder is the ould fella is maybe over staying his welcome but then who could blame him, it’s Ferrari for gods sake Still it must be nice to know the books are all good, they look good in testing and Massa is picking up the Bandini Trophy in recognition of his impressive performances for Ferrari last season. Well deserved if you ask me. It’s not all perfect though, their recent TV commercial shoot went a bit pear shaped in Australia, hopefully though it’ll be the only bad luck for Ferrari down under in 2007.
Roll on March 18th
