    Default - FORMULA 1 Season 2007 - (RAIKONNEN WINS)

    There is considerable time left in the start of the season but there are a lot of news coming through. So, just like last time we had a single thread about F1 2006 season I am starting this thread for the 2007 Season. This will allow all of us to discuss things at one place.

    My request to all the F1 fans, please post F1 2007 related stuff here.

    more rumors

    Ferrari big bosses want Hamilton


    Ferrari have reportedly been told to swoop for Lewis Hamilton by their bosses Fiat.

    According to the Daily Mirror, the Italian car manufacturer want their F1 team to make a £17million raid on McLaren for the young British sensation.

    Hamilton once again showed off his breathtaking talent by extending his lead in the title race with victory in Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix.

    But afterwards all the talk was of the rift between him and McLaren team-mate Fernando Alsono.

    The Spaniard's future appears to be in doubt, but the Mirror claims it's Hamilton that could be the man being targeted for a move.

    It claims Fiat are hoping Ferrari can capitalise on the internal strife at McLaren to lure Hamilton away to Maranello.

    The British rookie is earning just £250,000 in his first season in Formula One, and the Italian giants would be happy to make him one of the world's highest-paid sportsmen.

    Current Ferrari number one Kimi Raikkonen rakes in £22million per year, but Hamilton could even top that.

    Alonso a free agent for 2008?
    Team discord at new heights



    Fernando Alonso, who is at daggers drawn with his McLaren co-driver Lewis Hamilton, has been told by boss Ron Dennis that he can leave McLaren at the end of the season, a report claimed on Tuesday.

    The double world champion's future is up in the air as his relationship with Hamilton broke down at the Hungarian Grand Prix last weekend when he was penalised for his part in trying to prevent the Briton from starting in pole.

    The Times quoted what the paper described as a 'well-placed' source as confirming Alonso may quit the team two years ahead of schedule.

    "My understanding is that he's been told he can go because they're so fed up with him. Ron is just very pissed off with both of them," the unnamed source said.


    These comments follow Alonso's confirmation that his future at the British team was uncertain. The unsettled Spaniard, asked by sports daily Marca if he was planning to stay with McLaren, replied: "I don't know."

    Two likely destinations for Alonso if he were to sever his ties with McLaren are Renault, with whom he won his two world titles, and BMW, who are yet to confirm Nick Heidfeld for 2008.

    LOL! The British media never surprise me. Being a nation of
    mediocrity as far as sports go Hamilton must be a divine prophet for them. Same was the hype for years about Jenson Button. Having argubaly the best football league in the world their only title came in 1966. David Beckham is the best soccer player they have or had upto about a year or so back. Tim Henman their best tennis player and now Andy Murray on whom the bookies took bets that he would be world #1 by the end of 2007!! Yeah right if Roger Federer and about a dozen or so others stopped playing.
    In Motor Racing Damon Hill is their last world champion. That says enough about the talent they have. Their media will continue with these wild and crazy speculations.
    I for one hope the pair stay as team mates for one more year at the same team and than we will know the exact worth of Lewis Hamilton, and not based on 11 races with Mclaren having had data about Ferrari design and all.

    As for Alonso being told he can go because " they" are sick of him that is another hilarious story. Anyone with a single digit IQ would know that is not something any team will ever tell Fernando Alonso. What has been said is that things are getting out of hand and might end up like they were in the late 80`s. As for his likely destination every team up and down the pitlane would want him including the prancing horse. Even Toyota have not confirmed Ralf Schumacher. I personally dont see him going anywhere atleast for one more year though alot will depend on how the rest of the season goes. He or Hamilton will not be told they are free to go anywhere they want in 2008 plus Mclaren dont need they money which might influence a lessor team to sell one of their drivers. If anyone of them leaves it will not be because of monetary reasons.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    McLaren press on with Hungary appeal

    McLaren have gone forward with their appeal against their penalty in the Hungarian Grand Prix, autosport.com can reveal.

    The British squad were penalised after qualifying for what the stewards considered to be actions "prejudicial to the interests of the competition."

    McLaren were barred from scoring any constructors' points, a total of 15 in the end, and world champion Fernando Alonso was demoted from pole to sixth place on the grid after unnecessarily impeding teammate Lewis Hamilton.

    Hamilton was forced to wait for an extra 10 seconds behind Alonso's car in the final minutes of qualifying, and the delay meant the Briton was unable to complete his final flying lap.

    The stewards found the team and Alonso guilty
    Within an hour McLaren notified the stewards of their intent to appeal, however by Sunday evening McLaren CEO Ron Dennis hinted the team were uncertain whether or not to continue with the appeal, although he denied suggestions the team already decided to repeal it.

    But McLaren have decided to press on with the appeal, and the British national motorsport authority, which represents McLaren, have given notice to the FIA.

    An FIA spokesman confirmed the news to autosport.com, stating: "We understand that the International Court of Appeal secretariat has received a confirmation of McLaren's appeal from the UK National Sporting Authority."

    McLaren are still 19 points ahead of Ferrari in the championship with six races remaining.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    For Jenson Button Fans if they really exsist

    Button's time is up, says Mansell

    Jenson Button's opportunities to succeed in Formula One are now gone, according to former world champion Nigel Mansell.

    "Jenson should have won more races, he has under-performed and that is down to him," Mansell told the BBC.

    "He had the opportunity and he didn't take it; there won't be any more," the 1992 world champion added.

    Button scored his maiden Grand Prix in last year's Hungarian Grand Prix, after 115 races, but has struggled in this year's championship with an uncompetitive Honda.

    This season Button has scored just one point in 11 races and has failed to qualify in the top 16 in the last three Grands Prix.

    Mansell believes Button's best days are now behind him.

    "Jenson is a great talent," Mansell said. "But he was far better years ago than he is now because he was hungry then. He's got a great reputation for partying and that's taken the edge off it. He's a typical example of too much, too soon.

    "He'll have a great lifestyle but he's had his opportunities and it hasn't happened for him."
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    Irvine slams 'disrespectful' Lewis

    Former Ferrari driver Eddie Irvine has slammed Lewis Hamilton for showing “unbelievable disrespect” to McLaren team boss Ron Dennis in their fiery radio exchange during qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix.

    Hamilton reportedly told his boss to, “Go f****** swivel” after he thought the team had deliberately held him up behind team-mate Fernando Alonso in the pit lane in the closing minutes of qualifying as punishment for him disobeying team orders at the start of the Q3 fuel-burn phase.

    The 22-year-old admitted following his victory at the Hunagroring that he had got it wrong and duly apologised to the team for his actions and spoke to long-time mentor Dennis separately about the heated exchange.

    However in his column for Virgin Media, Irvine blasts Hamilton for his behaviour towards his team boss and believes the rookie’s 'nice guy' image in the media is starting to wear thin.

    “The disrespect Lewis Hamilton showed to Ron Dennis was quite unbelievable in my opinion,” the Ulsterman said.

    “Lewis is playing a particularly polished and clever game when it comes to appearing cleaner-than-clean to the media but his arrogance is starting to come out now.

    “Success is starting to go to his head and, whilst I challenge any man on the planet in his position not let it do so, the way both he and [Fernando]Alonso are behaving is beyond childish – and the way he behaved in Hungary is beyond belief.”

    Irvine was known as Formula 1’s bad boy during his decade in the sport but claims he never disrespected any of his team bosses.

    “I have no respect for people who disrespect their team managers and Lewis is rapidly beginning to lose mine,” he said.

    “I've had some run-ins with authority in my career and some disagreements with the likes of Eddie Jordan, Niki Lauda and Bobby Rahal, but I've never disrespected anybody and certainly never sworn at anyone over the team radio.”
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    Date set for spy case appeal hearing

    The FIA court of appeal hearing into the McLaren and Ferrari spying case will take place on 13 September in Paris.

    Motorsport's governing body also announced that the press would be allowed to sit in on the hearing, and that the other teams would be permitted to address the court.

    "In the interests of transparency the hearing will be open to members of the press and details of the accreditation procedure will be published closer to the time," said an official statement.

    "All of the teams competing in the 2007 FIA Formula One World Championship have been given the opportunity to make written submissions to the ICA and have been invited to attend the hearing to supplement their submissions with oral presentations."

    The appeal hearing was called by FIA president Max Mosley after Italian authority president Luigi Macaluso sent a letter expressing his organisation's dissatisfaction with the outcome of the original World Motor Sport Council meeting on the matter.

    The WMSC had summoned McLaren to answer charges of breaking the sporting code after confidential Ferrari information was found in the possession of their chief designer Mike Coughlan.

    McLaren received no punishment after the court decided there was no evidence that the team had made any use of the data that Coughlan had received.

    Date set for McLaren's Hungary appeal

    McLaren's appeal against losing their constructors' championship points at the Hungarian Grand Prix will be heard on September 19.

    The Woking-based team were handed their penalty by the race stewards in the wake of world champion Fernando Alonso blocking teammate Lewis Hamilton in the pits during qualifying at the Hungaroring.

    McLaren had initially considered not pressing ahead with their appeal, but eventually decided to. The team took 15 points from the race, with rivals Ferrari only scoring eight.

    A statement issued by the FIA on Friday said: "The International Court of Appeal (ICA) will meet in Paris on Wednesday, September 19, 2007 to hear an appeal lodged by the Motor Sports Association on behalf of its licence-holder Vodafone McLaren Mercedes concerning a decision of the Panel of the Stewards of the 2007 Hungarian Grand Prix.

    "In the interests of transparency the hearing will be open to members of the press and details of the accreditation procedure will be published closer to the time."

    The September 19 hearing will be the second time in a week that McLaren will be up in front of the International Court of Appeal. On September 13, the court is ruling on the spy scandal that involves McLaren's chief designer Mike Coughlan.

    Raikkonen ready to go on the attack
    Wednesday, 22, August, 2007, 10:34


    Kimi Raikkonen admits he is now in a position where he has to take more risks in the remaining races of the season to give himself a chance of world title glory.

    The Ferrari driver returns from a holiday in his native Finland 20 points behind championship leader Lewis Hamilton with just six races left, starting at Istanbul Park in Turkey this weekend.

    The 27-year-old says that although his mindset for the remaining races will be the same as it was for the preceding rounds, his points deficit to the McLaren drivers means he is under less pressure and can throw caution to the wind.

    “I will confront these last races in the same spirit I confronted the ones before: I'll try to win and collect as many points as possible and then we will do the maths in the classification,” he said in his race preview.

    “We have to give our best and hope that those who are ahead of us have slight problems.

    “I don't have much to lose so I can risk more than my colleagues at McLaren.

    “Six races can seem to be only a few, but for the ones who are leading it's a lot.

    “We were able to see that over the last weekend at the Rally of Germany, where [Marcus] Gronholm paid a high price for a bad day.”

    Raikkonen predicted after his second place to Hamilton three weeks ago in Hungary that the remaining lower downforce configuration tracks on the calendar should play to the F2007’s strengths.

    He therefore heads in to the final third of the season confident that Ferrari has the speed to gatecrash the McLaren duo’s drivers’ title battle.

    “We have to confront the last part of the season, the one in which everything will be decided,” the Finn said.

    “There are three races in four weeks, plus a test: this is certain to be a very busy period, but we are racing on tracks, which are amongst my favourites - Istanbul, Monza and Spa-Francorchamps.

    “I think that these are tracks where Ferrari should be very competitive: there are no characteristics that are against us.

    “The whole team is working together, to try to recuperate the gap in the points: in Maranello they didn't stop working over the last days! I spoke to the technicians and they told me that we have a couple of new developments in the car.

    “We are optimistic for Turkey: I won the first race ever held here, which gave me a very special feeling.”
