    Ecclestone launches attack on Todt<!-- end title -->
    "Jean Todt is a poor man's Max," Ecclestone told the Daily Express. "He has been travelling around the world doing what Max didn't do too much - kissing the babies and shaking the hands. It is probably good for the FIA but we don't need it in Formula 1."
    ..


    @steve..
    i notice that u 've changed your avatar for this season.. hmm.. but another odd choice .. carnage at the first corner i believe though a lone ferrari can be seen leading the pack safely ... is it your prediction for the season or is it a jinx ??..

    AUTOSPORT launches Android App<!-- end title -->

    <!-- Begin Main Box--><!-- title -->Codemasters confirms F1 2011<!-- end title -->
    Codemasters has announced the F1 2011 game will be launched in September this year, as the series expands following the success of its 2010 version.

    @m_waqas
    My avatar's some history:
    "The lone Ferrari is going to retire, the car airborne is Ralf Schumacher's Williams BMW. The scene is 2002 season opener at Melbourne, this is the second biggest before first lap shunt in F1 history, 8 cars involved including both the Ferraris of Rubens and Michal, Rubens retires as he was the one from whom Ralf got airborne, Michal also ended up on the grass and have to go back to the pits for wing repairs, then he goes on to win this GP."

    Prediction or Jinx is upto you, what ever you think. I have a bad feeling about this season opener and it is not related to any particular team or driver.

    As for Vettel Pics, I see you have not shown the one where he is shearing the sheep.

    The best ( read insane ) Interview given by Bernie.

    Bernie Ecclestone stands by Formula 1 'fake rain' plans <label for="rb_iconid_13">-Formula 1 - Season 2011 - icon13</label><label for="rb_iconid_13">-Formula 1 - Season 2011 - icon13</label>
    Formula 1 chief Bernie Ecclestone says there is growing support for using sprinkler systems to wet F1 tracks in order to make races more entertaining.
    Despite opposition from drivers such as Red Bull's Mark Webber, Ecclestone said: "There's no reason why sprinklers shouldn't happen.

    "There's so much support because wet races are always the best by far."


    @genius83

    Thanks for putting up that picture. I am sure Paula would have preferred a close up of the face but that can happen later on in the season hopefully.

    I like you avatar and like how the 2002 season turned out As long as it's the same kind of season for Ferrari, your avatar is appreciated.

    As you can see from my new avatar, i have switched teams this season and i am supporting Red Bull and Vettel.


    @m_waqas

    Work has begun Now that you ve got the timing right, i expect you to deliver, i.e, watch the race though I am supporting Red Bull for a stunning 1-2 finish in the race My avatar has a small history too, but we shall not talk about it.

    .
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    Why Ferrari won the testing war

    By Randeep Singh
    Source: Autosport

    Red Bull might be most people's favourite ahead of the weekend opener, but careful analysis of the final test in Barcelona shows that it may well be Ferrari that has the edge when the lights go out in Melbourne.

    Detailed analysis of winter testing by AUTOSPORT indicates that it is Ferrari who will start the season as the pace-setting team. Examination of its performance - both on low-fuel runs and longer race simulations - clearly suggests that Ferrari has an edge over world champion Red Bull Racing ahead of the first race (see graphic below).


    The headline times released at the end of the day can be very misleading since teams run vastly different programmes; most are experimenting with new parts, drivers can change between days, and of course there is always the temptation to bang in a headline-grabbing quick lap if a team is looking to assuage potential sponsors.


    A more accurate estimation of relative pace can be achieved by taking long-run data and correcting it for factors such as tyre degradation and variations in grip level caused by the weather conditions.

    -Formula 1 - Season 2011 - 1300980155

    For 2011 the new family of Pirelli tyre compounds and their sharper degradation characteristics makes any analysis somewhat coarse, especially where little data exists as to whether particular times were set on worn or fresh rubber. Nevertheless, factoring in the times over the entire week of the final test at Barcelona enables a degree of statistical 'smoothing'.



    In terms of pace, the field – apart from HRT which did not run – is separated by five seconds, although the gaps between the leading teams are tighter.


    Ferrari, Red Bull, McLaren and Renault are separated by a second, with Mercedes lagging a little although it improved demonstrably once development parts arrived.
    Cars consume fuel at Barcelona at a rate of around 2.3kg every lap. Each kilogramme of fuel on board slows the car down by an average of 0.035s per lap. From this it is possible to calculate raw pace by subtracting the fuel penalty and factoring in tyre degradation and any benefits or penalties brought about by the track conditions.


    What we see is that the times got slower on a lap by lap basis of around 0.2sec (accounting for fuel/tyres).


    During the early part of the week Red Bull showed an advantage over the other teams in terms of fuel and tyre-adjusted pace, with McLaren over half a second behind and Ferrari a tenth or so further back. None of the midfield teams or backmarkers really surprised during this phase of the test, when most were concentrating on shorter runs.



    Vitaly Petrov set impressive times in the Renault, which on an adjusted basis was not very far off the leaders - only a tenth or so away from the Red Bull – but fuel weights could have played a part in this.


    On the fourth day there were several developments. Red Bull's long-run pace was not quite so impressive, although the RB7 was still quick on shorter runs. McLaren almost didn't feature, setting adjusted times slower than most of the midfield teams.
    It's likely that both McLaren and Red Bull were running with considerable fuel.


    The big story of the day was Alonso's blistering pace, set during one particular stint of a simulated race distance, where he posted his eight best (and the week's eight best) adjusted times, indicating a raw pace of around 1m19.2s. His nearest rival was actually Rubens Barrichello, who set the ninth to 12th best adjusted times during a stint where he managed a raw pace of 1m20.4s, followed closely by Schumacher on 1m21.0s.


    Of course, it is impossible to achieve 100 per cent accuracy with any of these estimates given the variables, not only in terms of tyre degradation but also in terms of technical changes. McLaren, for instance, experimented with exhaust configurations during the test and have arrived at Melbourne with a substantially revised car.


    Still, bearing in mind that teams would have run different amounts of fuel over the week, different set-ups and parts, and that the track was in better condition at different times, it is possible to estimate the adjusted pace over the week as a whole.


    And that estimate suggests that far from being clearly in front, Red Bull is actually two tenths of a second behind Ferrari on adjusted pace – something that could provide a race-winning advantage this weekend.

    Cool Australian GP - Massa & Alonso speaking...

    <big>Massa: “This weekend, a clear picture of where we are”
    </big>
    -Formula 1 - Season 2011 -218412

    The Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro driver felt the team was as well prepared as possible for the opening round of the season.
    “Over the winter, the challenge has been to learn everything based on all the changes to the rules and to put everything together in such a way that we can start our season moving in the right direction,” he said.

    <big>Alonso: “A new Formula 1 starts in Melbourne”

    </big>-Formula 1 - Season 2011 -218413



    Fernando Alonso was called to appear in today’s FIA press conference at the Albert Park circuit, on the outskirts of Melbourne. Looking back at the winter months, the Spaniard felt that for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro, testing had gone smoothly with no particular problems. “It is always a challenge when you have regulation changes,” he began.
