Stop medling! But oh what a start….

March 29, 2008

It’s been a while, so time to kick start things again.

What is this latest obsession with night races and changing the times for the European market?  When it was first announced that Singapore would be holding a night race I liked the idea as something different, and it will still be interesting to see how it works.  But then come the Australian GP, there’s rumour that Bernie is pushing them to make the race a night race, or risk losing it!  Just to make the race a sensible time for Europe.  Now personally I quite like getting up at ‘Stupid o’clock’ for the flyaway races, to me it is part of being a fan and helps to define the start of the season, it means you have to put a bit of dedication in too.  So by all means, have some night races, but don’t go forcing people into it (Particularly when we haven’t even seen if it will work yet), and don’t go messing with the times too much for TV schedule, if you’re that bothered about it why take on more flyaway races?  Why not all of them in Europe (No I don’t want that either, just making a point).

Anyway, as for the the actual racing, it’s good to see McLaren leading 1 race, and then Ferrari the next, could make for a very interesting competition this year.

Whilst it pains me to say it, not being a huge Alonso fan, you have to hand it to him, he’s driving the wheels off a car that wasn’t expected to perform.
