    Default 2006 Formula One Championship Thread

    Ok, only a few months to go before Bahrain...(It's weird not starting in Australia...)

    Many questions this year...

    Will Ferrari regain the top spot?
    Who will have the best reliability and performance with the new V8 engines?
    How will the new tyre rules affect the Championship?
    Will Red Bull start the rise to the top?
    Will JV race for BMW Sauber?
    Will BAR get their maiden win this year?
    How will Scott Speed do being the first American to race since 1993?

    Many, many, more questions...

    It should be an exciting season!!!

    Here's his website:

    Scott Speed's website

    He was one of the first to win the Red Bull Driver Search. The search was put out by Red Bull and Danny Sullivan (ex F1, Indy 500 winner) to find the next American F1 driver. I guess his website will tell you more than I could...

    Hopefully not because they had so long reign. But if Kimi were their driver I would really want them to be numero UNO!

    I really hope there will be more overtakes and a good fight from the championships.

    I know this story isn't related to F1 other than us fans here are more likely to be fans of WRC than over at the Nascar thread...

    Richard Burns died on the fourth anniversary of his title win.

    Rest in Peace, RB...

    I suspected that might happen, given that the technical director for Michelin, retired at the end of the season, and that a few teams defected to Bridgestone.

    I guess Barrichello's stint away from Bridgestone will be short lived. He should give all the honors back that he received from Bridgeston.

    Alonso is leaving Renault after 2006 to join McLaren...

    Stories everywhere this morning about it...

    I wonder, will Montoya or Kimi be on the way out? I guess the Kimi going to Ferrari rumors will be in full force by the end of the day...

    I surely hope that so we can all be fans of Ferrari then and I don't have to hate them anymore.

    F1 is great. Silly season begins way before the actual season starts.
