    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.

    EuroSport is reporting that Raikkonen`s title has been confirmed after it was decided not to take any action against BMW and Williams.

    Stewards confirm Brazilian GP result


    Kimi Raikkonen has been confirmed as the 2007 Formula 1 world champion after Brazilian Grand Prix stewards upheld the original race result.

    After lengthy deliberations at Interlagos on Sunday evening, the stewards decided not to penalise Williams and BMW Sauber for minor technical irregularities.

    FIA technical delegate Jo Bauer said fuel samples taken from the two teams’ cars during their pit stops in Sunday’s race revealed temperatures outside the permitted range.

    But in a statement issued more than six hours after the end of the race, the stewards said there was sufficient doubt about the fuel temperatures “as to render it inappropriate to impose a penalty”.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    Congratulations once more to all the Kimi and Ferrari fans.
    I believe the title should have gone to Ferrari after all that happened this year, and it would have been very unfair if either Mclaren driver had won the championship.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    Anthony Hamilton stays positive

    Lewis Hamilton's father Anthony insists that his family and fans have no reason to be downcast despite Kimi Raikkonen snatching the title away from Lewis at the last gasp.

    Britain's new hero had led the world championship since May, but a first lap error followed by a gearbox problem saw him tumble down the order in Brazil.

    Hamilton fell right down to 18th, and although a charging recovery drive took him back up to seventh, it was insufficient with Raikkonen winning the race.

    But his father said Lewis's achievements this year had still been incredible and deserved to be celebrated even though he lost the championship.

    "To be quite honest, none of us are in pain - trust me, we feel great," Anthony told ITV Sport's Louise Goodman.

    "We've just had one of the most fantastic Formula 1 seasons ever.

    "If somebody had told me a year ago we'd be fighting for the world championship at this stage, I'd have told that they were dreaming.

    "It's been a fantastic year.

    "We lost it by one point, and we'll come back next year."

    Anthony added that his son still had many chances to take the championship in his career.

    "If we don't win it next year, we'll win it the year after," he said.

    "But one thing's for sure - Lewis Hamilton is here to stay.

    "He drove a fantastic race to come back from 18th, but things are sent to try you.

    "We're going to be positive - we're going to come back next year, the team's going to come back strong, hopefully all the rubbish that's gone through Formula 1 this year will not be there next year, and I think we're going to be a force to be reckoned with again."

    He also paid tribute to Hamilton's army of fans, and urged them to stay positive this evening.

    "Thank you to everybody who's been supporting us this year, and apologies, but have a drink and be happy - because it is a happy day," Anthony concluded.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    JAMES ALLEN'S VERDICT
    Well, at least this shows you how hard it is to win the F1 world championship!

    Lewis Hamilton’s dream of becoming the first ever rookie champion (except for the inaugural year of 1950) was dashed today as his gearbox selected neutral on lap eight, losing him half a minute and dropping him to 18th place.

    But if you reflect that after Fuji he had a 17-point lead over Kimi Raikkonen, you wonder how in the hell he could have lost the world title to him in two races. It is one of the greatest misses in racing history.

    Kimi did all that was in his power – he won both the final races, while Lewis contrived to score just two points from two races.

    Paying for previous mistakes

    McLaren are devastated but it is hard to feel much sympathy for them.

    They made a terrible mistake in leaving Hamilton out on knackered tyres in China while they hesitated over what to do next.

    If they had brought him in two laps earlier, when it was bleeding obvious he was in trouble, and put any kind of tyres onto his car, he would have scored five or six points and Raikkonen wouldn’t even have been in contention in Brazil.

    But they tried to win the title in China, when they didn’t need to, and paid a massive price.

    So Kimi really has McLaren to thank for this world title because they quite literally gave it to him.


    Here in Brazil the picture was more complicated.

    Clearly Lewis was cautious at the start, losing places to Kimi and Fernando Alonso, but then he lost his head and tried to repass Alonso.

    Remember that at that point he was still going to be world champion as fourth was enough for him.

    So it was out of character for Lewis and he will have learned from that. He did what Alonso did in Spain and Canada – a desperate lunge – and as with Fernando, it didn’t pay off for him.

    Bad timing

    But his real problem today was the gearbox glitch.

    It was the first mechanical failure he had suffered all season in a race and I suppose you could say it was overdue. But it was mighty strange the way it happened.
    Thereafter he gave it his best shot to climb back up, but the switch to a three-stop strategy and soft tyres quite early in the race on a short middle stint was a gamble.

    McLaren say it made up 10 seconds compared to a two-stop by doing it and you’d have to have a hell of a clever computer to disagree with them.

    I don’t know. But I feel that Lewis was in a good groove before the switch to softs, passing people easily and making good progress and that stopped once he switched to a three-stop and took the softs.
    Ferrari played it very well at the front, waiting to see what Alonso and Hamilton would do.

    Robert Kubica briefly took third away from Alonso, but it was because he was on a different strategy.

    Once Alonso regained third place it was always clear that Raikkonen would jump Massa at the second stops to become champion


    A deserving winner?

    Does Raikkonen deserve to be champion? Of course he does because a supreme talent like his should be rewarded in the history books.
    He has won 15 grands prix, been a front-runner for the past six years and come close to the title on two previous occasions.

    Does he deserve it this year? That’s more tricky. He does in the sense that in the second half of the year he was clearly the best driver.

    But this year he was off-form in early summer and turned in some odd performances before he got his act together in France.

    Since then he has been an express train. He’s scored 78 points since France, while Lewis scored just 51.

    A lot of that is down to the fact that it took Kimi some time to get up to speed with the Bridgestone tyres: They act differently from the Michelins in the way they turn in to a corner and as that is a key area where Kimi gets his speed, he had to adapt his style to get the most out of them. That took several months.

    Also he had reliability problems in Spain and Nurburgring, which cost him big points.

    But I look at the qualifying incident in Monaco where he lost concentration, and at the restart in Bahrain where he did the same, and at the several times in the early part of the year where Hamilton caught him napping and I wonder whether he was personally giving 100 percent there.

    But it’s great news that F1 has a new champion and I’ve no doubt that there will be three world champions in the field in the next couple of years because Hamilton is going to win the title next year or the year after: that is clear.

    A wealth of talent
    The scene is set for a golden era, with three world-class drivers fighting for the championship provided that the politics do not stay so intense.

    The racing this year has been superb, absolutely superb, and all four front-runners have played their part in that. But off-track has been very unpleasant indeed and we’ve all got caught up in it to varying degrees.

    There have been some very strong support performances too.

    Nico Rosberg ended his season on a high note with an absolutely sensational drive to fourth place, ahead of both BMWs – his best drive in F1 to date.

    He is my standout driver of the day and it’s been a great season for him. I wasn’t sure he merited the hype last year, but now I’m certain that he is one of the top talents.

    He needs a winning car to show us whether he is on the same level as Kimi, Lewis and Fernando.

    Nick Heidfeld has also been outstanding this year and Heikki Kovalainen, although he had a very poor weekend in Brazil as he did at the first race in Australia, has shown in the second half of the year that he is a strong driver.

    I’ve enjoyed the racing this season. I’m worn out by the politics, as are most of the media, and I hope to God that we don’t have more of the same in 2008 because I don’t think it does any good for the sport’s credibility.

    But we have a new world champion, Ferrari have shown that they still have the winning habit even without Schumacher and Brawn and now we gear up for the 2008 season.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    Raikkonen confirmed as the 2007 champion
    No penalties in post race inspection


    Six wins and Raikkonen is a deserving champion

    The post-race investigation at Interlagos has resulted in no penalty for BMW Sauber or Williams Toyota. There was a question regarding the fuel used by both teams and more critically, its temperature and therefore the volume and performance.

    The stewards’ investigation was especially significant not just because of the points scored by both teams today at the Brazilian Grand Prix, but because any exclusion or penalty could have seen Lewis Hamilton promoted up the order and declared world champion.

    The McLaren driver finished in seventh position following a driving error at the start compounded by a gearbox problem that dropped him down the order shortly afterwards.
    Hamilton fought back and took the chequered flag in seventh position.

    Nico Rosberg’s fourth position stands, as does the fifth and sixth position secured by Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld respectively.

    Kimi Raikkonen has therefore been confirmed as the 2007 World Champion.

    I mostly stick with Autosport.com and itv-f1.com. Found both sites to be reliable though the stuff on itv gets to a person if you are not a hamilton fan.

    McLaren appeal casts doubt over title

    The outcome of the 2007 drivers’ world championship has been plunged into renewed doubt after McLaren declared its intention to appeal the decision of the Interlagos stewards not to penalise Williams and BMW Sauber for alleged fuel irregularities.

    After Sunday’s Brazilian Grand Prix the stewards analysed fuel samples taken from the Williams and BMW cars during their pit stops, which appeared to show temperatures outside the permitted range.

    The enquiry into an apparently arcane technical issue had potentially huge repercussions, since Williams driver Nico Rosberg and BMW’s Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld finished the race fourth, fifth and sixth respectively – ahead of Lewis Hamilton, who lost the world title to Kimi Raikkonen by a single point after a disastrous race.

    Had the three drivers been disqualified, Hamilton would have been promoted to fourth place and declared world champion.

    But because the stewards deemed the evidence inconclusive, they opted not to impose any penalties and upheld the original result, confirming Raikkonen as champion.

    However, a McLaren spokeswoman confirmed late on Sunday evening that the team intends to challenge the stewards’ ruling in the FIA’s International Court of Appeal – leaving the title result hanging in the balance once again.

    McLaren has notified the governing body of its intentions but no appeal date has yet been set.

    A couple of hours earlier, in a statement explaining their decision, the stewards said they could not prove that the fuel used by Williams and BMW was illegal.

    Article 6.5.5 of the Formula 1 technical regulations states: “No fuel on board the car may be more than 10 degrees centigrade below ambient temperature.”

    FIA technical delegate Jo Bauer reported that the fuel samples from all four cars showed temperatures 12-14C lower than the ambient at the time.

    But the stewards said they could not be certain the temperatures were outside the 10C limit due to conflicting evidence.

    They pointed to a discrepancy between the ambient temperature recorded on the Formula One Management timing monitors and that provided by the FIA and team-contracted meteorologists Meteo France – and said there was no “regulation stating in clear terms that for the purposes of Article 6.5.5 the definitive ambient temperature shall be indicated on the FOM timing monitors alone”.

    They also said they lacked “a precise reading of the temperature of ‘fuel on board the car’ which shows fuel at more than 10 degrees centigrade below ambient temperature”.

    Their statement concluded: “In view of the matters referred to above, the stewards consider that…there must be sufficient doubt as to both the temperature of the fuel actually ‘on board the car’ and also as to the true ambient temperature as to render it inappropriate to impose a penalty”.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    guys i have a question about an incident happens on the interlagos circuit. During the qualifying session on starsports steve slater said that this circuit is the most amazing circuit in the F1 as this is the only circuit where safety cars crash into eachother. I like to know when this incident happens. As for kimi's win its been part of history that when front runners have their own problems then the third driver could take advantage thats what happens in 80's title decider and thats what happens in 86's title decider when the driver on third positon wins the title.

    Kimi drove wonderfully excellent race. Thumbs up to kimi and for ferrari team as they really worked hard throughout the season.

    Hamilton drove hard and fast for the whole year and at times things come to you when you truly deserve them. Alonso was a disappointment, pretty negative attitude by someone experienced.

    I am happy that Kimi won atleast it wasnt the Alonso at he poll...

    Thnxx..
    Jayala....

    Alonso: Shameful if title won in court

    Deposed world champion Fernando Alonso says he would be ashamed for Formula 1 if his team-mate Lewis Hamilton became world champion on the back of McLaren winning a case through the appeal court.

    The outcome of the 2007 championship was thrown into doubt late on Sunday night after McLaren, who had seen Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen pip both of its drivers to the world crown at Interlagos, signalled it would appeal the stewards’ decision not to penalise Williams and BMW Sauber for alleged fuel irregularities.

    Hamilton finished two points shy of beating Raikkonen to the title in seventh place, but the three cars that finished directly ahead of him in Brazil were a Williams (Nico Rosberg) and the two BMWs (Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld) – meaning if they had been disqualified he would have been promoted to fourth place and become world champion.

    However Alonso, who’s McLaren future remains in doubt after a strained season at the team, believes that should an appeal hearing happen and McLaren win, it would damage the sport and ensure the wrong man won the championship.

    "If Hamilton wins by the appeal I will hide my head in shame, it would be a lack of respect,” he told Spain’s Cadena Ser radio station.

    "Whoever gets the most points is the rightful champion.


    “It would sink the sport if they won the title this way."


    Alonso’s two-year reign as world champion came to an end at Interlagos after finishing a distant third to the runaway Ferrari duo.

    A McLaren driver had led the drivers’ championship since the second round of the season, but it was Raikkonen, who had been 26 points behind Hamilton at mid-season, who ended up snatching the title.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.
