    Positive start for new Honda


    Barrichello and Button upbeat after RA107 outings

    Honda are feeling confident for the season ahead after the team’s 2007 challenger, the RA107, passed its first test with flying colours. The new car completed 178 laps, some 823 kilometres, at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya last week during the Japanese team’s three-day session.

    After a brief shakedown run at Silverstone on Monday, the RA107 headed to Spain. Race driver Rubens Barrichello completed a private run on Wednesday, before taking charge of the new car during its official launch in front of the media on Thursday. In total the Brazilian covered 92 laps in the new car, clocking a fastest time of 1m 23.030s.

    "It's been an exciting test for us this week and I'm glad to have had the chance to drive the new RA107 car,” said Barrichello. “The whole team has done a great job and the car is already on the same pace as last year's car, despite not having all of its development parts yet. There is a lot of work to do to get us ready for the start of the season, but from my laps this week, I really enjoyed the feeling of the car."

    The Brazilian’s team mate, Jenson Button, was also in attendance, although his initial run on Thursday was interrupted by a minor problem which saw him stop out on track. Button made it back out on Friday and completed 86 laps, the British driver’s best time a 1m 23.16s.

    "It's been a very productive day which was really about running through all the simple things with the car such as basic set-up changes and getting the balance to my liking,” commented Button. “We achieved that pretty early on which is positive and it enabled us to cover a good number of laps. So for one day in the car, it was productive, but it is just the beginning."

    After carrying out all the basic systems check for the new car, Button and Barrichello managed to undertake a programme of engine cooling evaluations, ahead of February’s hot-weather tests in Bahrain.

    “The RA107 programme this week focused on the standard control runs that you have to undertake with any new car,” explained Jacky Eeckelaert, Honda’s engineering director. “We also checked the cooling and oil systems for both the engine and the gearbox to ensure that everything is working correctly. The aero data collected from the RA107 this week shows a very good correlation with the model data from the wind tunnel so we are pleased with that.”

    The team also ran last year’s car, the RA106, for the three days, with Button in charge on Wednesday and new tester Christian Klien behind the wheel on Thursday and Friday. The old car, which will reach the end of its test programme in a few weeks, was used to evaluate the new Bridgestone tyres and some electronic controls settings.

    Honda will stay in Spain this week to continue testing at Valencia.

    Firsts for Raikkonen and Toyota in Spain

    The opening day of testing in Valencia on Tuesday saw debuts aplenty, with Kimi Raikkonen getting his first taste of Ferrari’s new car, the F2007, and Toyota giving its 2007 challenger, the TF107, its first public track outing at the Spanish circuit.

    Raikkonen made his debut appearance for Ferrari in Italy last week, but only tested the team’s old car, the 248 F1. On Tuesday, however, the Finn got to grips with the machine in which he will contest the 2007 championship. He was joined by Ferrari tester Luca Badoer.

    Toyota were also out on track, showcasing their new car, which was launched at their German base earlier this month. Despite the damp conditions, race driver Jarno Trulli and tester Franck Montagny went out early in the session, as they began carrying out the Japanese team’s intensive pre-season programme.

    Full test report to follow after Tuesday’s session.

    Abu Dhabi Grand Prix confirmed

    The United Arab Emirates capital of Abu Dhabi will host its first Formula One Grand Prix in 2009, Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone announced Saturday.

    The race will be held on a track now under construction on Yas, a leisure island off oil-rich Abu Dhabi, he told reporters.

    Ecclestone signed the agreement granting Abu Dhabi the right to host the race for seven years starting in 2009 with a representative of the emirate's government in the presence of Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed al-Nahayan. Abu Dhabi is the largest and wealthiest of seven emirates making up the UAE.

    The contract can be extended beyond seven years, Ecclestone said. The signing followed a show by F1 drivers led by world champion Fernando Alonso watched by thousands of fans.

    The UAE will become the second country in the Middle East to host the race after Gulf Arab partner Bahrain, which hosted its first Grand Prix in 2004.

    "The Formula One Grand Prix is one of the world's most prestigious sporting events, in the same category as an Olympic Games or World Cup, and is unrivalled in terms of continuous global resonance. That is why this new partnership is such an exciting one for Abu Dhabi and the entire UAE," Abu Dhabi's crown prince said.

    "We are delighted to welcome Abu Dhabi into the Formula One family and we look forward to a long and successful partnership," Ecclestone said.


    He voiced confidence that neighbours Abu Dhabi and Bahrain will work together to enhance the race.

    The track on Yas island will be 5.5 kilometres long, with 2.5 kilometres reserved exclusively for the race. The plan to hold the Formula One Grand Prix on Yas is part of a project, announced in November, to turn the island into a premier leisure destination at a cost of 40 billion dollars.

    The island will have "a Ferrari-themed park, museum and theatre... linked to a top quality motor race track on which visitors can experience the thrill of the exclusive Ferrari Driving School (Pilota Ferrari), kart track and dune buggies," according to project developers AlDar Properties.

    The first phase of the project is due to be completed in 2008 and the entire venture will be completed in 2014 on the 2,500-hectare island which has a 32-kilometer Gulf shoreline.

    It is part of a series of multi-billion-dollar ventures launched by Abu Dhabi in a bid to claim a larger share of the region's booming tourism industry. Dubai, another UAE member, is already a bustling tourism and business hub.

    Jerez day one - strong start for new Williams
    The Williams FW29 made a highly encouraging track debut on Tuesday, as this week’s three-day Formula One test got underway in Spain. Alexander Wurz drove the new car to the second-fastest time, less than a tenth down on the pace-setting McLaren of Pedro de la Rosa.
    Having launched the car at their UK factory last week, Williams had two chassis in action. Between them, Wurz and team mate Nico Rosberg (ninth fastest) completed close to 140 laps, with no major problems.

    “Completing 611kms in total on the first running day with no issues with temperatures, vibrations etc., is a good start,” said Williams technical director Sam Michael. “Motivation within the team is really high and everyone is pushing hard to get the best out of the car before the first Grand Prix. Both drivers started testing different set-up packages before midday as there are some interesting new directions with this car and the Bridgestone Potenza tyres."

    De la Rosa’s fastest time, meanwhile, suggests McLaren’s positive testing form from Valencia last week is set to continue. The Spanish test driver was joined by team mate Lewis Hamilton, who finished the day fourth. The pair concentrated on long runs in the morning, with both MP4-22s completing full race distances, before switching to set-up and evaluation work in the afternoon. Fellow race driver Fernando Alonso will join Hamilton on Wednesday.

    Robert Kubica clocked the third-fastest time, while Sebastian Vettel took 11th for BMW Sauber. The two F1.07s covered a total of 100 laps during the day, although hydraulic problems in the afternoon hindered progress for both men, as they undertook set-up and aerodynamic evaluations.

    Kimi Raikkonen was fifth for Ferrari, while the Italian team’s tester Luca Badoer finished in 10th. Badoer, who stood in for an ill Felipe Massa at the last minute, completed 65 laps, while Raikkonen notched up a further 20. Both drove in F2007s and worked through development programmes with the new car. Massa will join the test on Wednesday.

    Toyota began their three-day test with Ralf Schumacher and test driver Franck Montagny in sixth and eighth respectively. The team took advantage of the sunny conditions at the Spanish track to learn more about the new TF107. Although some technical problems disrupted proceedings for both drivers, the team remained positive.

    “We gained a lot of useful information from both cars today but, as expected in testing, there were one or two issues which cost us time,” explained Toyota test team manager Gerd Pfeiffer. “Franck unfortunately caused a red flag when he suffered a transmission problem and had to stop on the track. Ralf had to wait during the afternoon for a minor oil spillage around the engine to be cleaned and we also made some suspension set-up changes which took time.”

    Honda’s Jenson Button, driving the team’s new RA107, split the Toyotas to take seventh, while tester Christian Klien took the 16th slot in the older RA106. Button initially spent time finding a good balance on the 2007 challenger, focusing on tyre and aero evaluations. The British driver covered 99 laps, while Klien completed 33, working through some electronic controls work and race start simulations. IndyCar driver Marco Andretti will take to the track on Wednesday in Klien’s place for a second test with the team.

    Red Bull’s David Coulthard and Mark Webber ended the day in 12th and 15th respectively, split by the two Renaults of Nelson Piquet Jr and Ricardo Zonta. Both Renault test drivers fielded the team’s new R27 and completed just under 200 laps in total. Zonta, who was making his debut for the team, got to grips with the new car and met test team members for the first time, while Piquet Jr continued the development programmes begun in Valencia last week.

    Testing continues in Jerez on Wednesday.

    Unofficial Tuesday times from Jerez:
    1. Pedro de la Rosa, McLaren, 1:19.998
    2. Alexander Wurz, Williams, 1:20.018
    3. Robert Kubica, BMW Sauber, 1:20.148
    4. Lewis Hamilton, McLaren, 1:20.222
    5. Kimi Raikkonen, Ferrari, 1:20.225

    8. Franck Montagny, Toyota, 1:20.409
    9. Nico Rosberg, Williams, 1:20.523

    Massa takes Ferrari back to the top
    Ferrari’s Felipe Massa made a triumphant return to the test track on Wednesday, clocking the fastest lap of the day in Jerez. Massa, who missed Tuesday’s session through illness, lapped the Spanish circuit in 1m 19.647s in the F2007 - just over one-tenth quicker than Robert Kubica in the BMW Sauber.
    Fully recovered from the flu which had stopped him testing a day earlier, Massa covered 46 laps as he kick started his week’s programme. The Brazilian was joined by team mate Kimi Raikkonen, who ended the session in fourth, after a technical problem on his F2007 curtailed his running. Both return on Thursday.

    At BMW Sauber, Kubica, who ran 97 laps while carrying out set-up and aero evaluations, was joined by Nick Heidfeld, 11th, who replaced tester Sebastian Vettel in the second F1.07. As it was Heidfeld’s opening day in Jerez with the new car, he concentrated predominantly on set-up before testing different brake cooling configurations. Test driver Timo Glock will take over from Kubica on Thursday to get his first run in the F1.07.

    Lewis Hamilton’s third slot for McLaren was backed up by the fifth-fastest time clocked by team mate Fernando Alonso. The pair continued development work on the MP4-22, and also assessed the brakes and power steering of the team’s 2007 challenger. Although Alonso stopped out on track in the afternoon following an oil pressure problem, he was able to return almost immediately and completed his test plan for the day.

    Nelson Piquet Jr enjoyed a strong showing for Renault in sixth, while fellow tester Ricardo Zonta was 14th in his second day with his new team. Zonta spent the session acclimatising to the French squad as he began a comprehensive technical programme.

    Williams’s positive performance from Tuesday was once again in evidence, with Alexander Wurz and Nico Rosberg seventh and eighth respectively. The pair spent the day checking mechanical and aero set-ups on the two FW29s and also carried out some longer runs to test the reliability of the team’s 2007 car.

    Ralf Schumacher was ninth for Toyota, while team mate Jarno Trulli, on his first day in the TF107 at the Spanish track, finished 15th. A productive morning spent trying different suspension options was followed by a much more disrupted afternoon. While a small repair on Trulli’s car cost him time after lunch, Schumacher’s car caused a red flag after stopping out on track.

    “We were not able to do as many laps in the afternoon after Ralf suffered a gearshift problem soon after lunch which needed quite a long time to fix,” explained Gerd Pfeiffer, Toyota’s test team manager. “Jarno was able to do more laps and that gave us the chance to test the car on some longer runs, although he lost a bit of time when a small repair was needed in the fuel tank.”

    Red Bull also fielded both their race drivers for a second day, with Mark Webber taking 10th and David Coulthard 12th. The pair covered over 100 laps in total, both in the team’s new RB3 chassis. Completing the timesheets were the two Hondas of Jenson Button, 13th, and Marco Andretti, 16th. While Button drove the team’s new car, IndyCar driver Andretti took charge of the older RA106 as he tested for the second time with the team.

    Testing continues in Jerez on Thursday, although poor weather conditions have been forecast.

    BMW Sauber shine in wet testing
    BMW Sauber’s Nick Heidfeld topped the timesheets on Thursday, after a wet final day of testing in Jerez. Heidfeld, who was the only driver to go quicker than 1m 30s, clocked a lap in 1m 29.497s - over half a second faster than Alexander Wurz in the Williams. BMW Sauber tester Timo Glock was third quickest, emphasising the team's impressive form in tricky conditions.
    Heidfeld covered 34 laps as he fine tuned the F1.07’s traction control and made some diagnostic checks, while Glock had his first proper run in the team’s new car. The pair initially went out on extreme wet tyres before switching to Bridgestone's standard wet tyres. In the afternoon, as conditions worsened, the team decided to abandon the test.

    Although Renault, with their two testers Nelson Piquet Jr and Ricardo Zonta in attendance, chose to stop testing after a few installation laps, other teams, with race drivers at their disposal used the wet conditions as an opportunity to evaluate the best set-ups for wet races.

    Alongside second-placed Wurz, Williams fielded Nico Rosberg, who ended the session fifth fastest. And at Ferrari, Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa were in charge of testing duties. Raikkonen covered 88 laps to take fourth and Massa, who managed 48 laps, took seventh slot.

    Honda’s Rubens Barrichello finished sixth in the RA107, after taking over from team mate Jenson Button, who ran on Wednesday. Barrichello was joined by IndyCar driver Marco Andretti, who tested the team’s RA106 for a second day and got his first taste of driving a Formula One car in the wet.

    Toyota race driver Jarno Trulli and test driver Franck Montagny were eighth and ninth respectively in the team’s new car, the TF107. While Trulli took charge of testing an updated transmission, Montagny took advantage of the rainy conditions to evaluate Bridgestone’s wet tyres.

    “It was an interesting day because we did a lot of laps and that was just what we needed,” commented the Frenchman. “We were able to evaluate a lot of information from the wet and extreme wet tyres after working on settings and tyre pressures. Now if it is raining in Melbourne for the first race we will be well prepared!”

    For the third day in succession both Red Bull drivers, Mark Webber and David Coulthard, were in action in RB3s. While Webber finished 11th, Coulthard took 10th after covering 69 laps. Although both have been hampered during the three-day test by a variety of issues, including a drive shaft failure and a gearbox glitch, the team were pleased with the progress of their Adrian Newey-designed 2007 challenger.

    “It was still a productive test, during which we got through all our planned programme and made progress over the three days," explained Ian Morgan, the team’s chief test engineer. "The working relationship with Renault continues to grow and we got on top of our problems, covering a respectable mileage."

    Meanwhile, both McLaren drivers seemed to struggle in the wet conditions with tester Pedro de la Rosa and Fernando Alonso ending the day in 12th and 13th respectively. De la Rosa completed a limited programme, while Alonso, who had evaluated Bridgestone’s wet tyres in Valencia last week, stayed out for just nine laps in the MP4-22.

    Testing resumes at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya next week, with a three-day session scheduled to begin on Monday, February 12.

    1. Nick Heidfeld, BMW Sauber, 1:29.497

    Anxiously waiting for the 18th March!
    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?

    Massa on flying form for Ferrari

    Ferrari’s Felipe Massa set a blistering pace in the F2007 as testing continued for a second day at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya on Tuesday. Massa clocked a best lap of 1m 21.181s at the Spanish track - just over five-tenths of a second quicker than team mate Kimi Raikkonen in the second Ferrari.
    After a trying opening day for the Italian team on Monday, the programme for Massa and Raikkonen was to complete as much mileage as possible. Raikkonen totalled 154 laps during the day and Massa 108, with neither F2007 suffering any serious problems.

    Meanwhile Heikki Kovalainen put Renault third, as he concentrated on set-up and conducted some initial evaluation of aerodynamic components ahead of the hot weather tests in Bahrain later in the month. Kovalainen was joined on track by fellow race driver Giancarlo Fisichella, who moved up the times to finish in fifth in the second R27.

    At McLaren, Fernando Alonso was fourth fastest, while Lewis Hamilton was sixth. Both drivers continued to carry out aero evaluations in the team’s new MP4-22 during the morning, but in the afternoon Hamilton switched to race simulation work.

    Robert Kubica was the quickest BMW Sauber driver in seventh as he tested dampers, while team mate Nick Heidfeld finished in 12th. Test driver Sebastian Vettel will take over driving duties from Kubica and join Heidfeld on track on Wednesday.

    The Toyotas of Jarno Trulli and Franck Montagny were eighth and 11th fastest respectively. Although Trulli’s morning was interrupted by an electronic problem, both drivers had a fruitful day and covered a total of 200 laps in the two TF107s.

    “We made it through a lot of laps so that was a fairly productive day for us,” explained Toyota chief engineer, Dieter Gass. “Jarno lost some time this morning with an electronics problem but his afternoon’s work was more successful. He was mainly doing set-up work and putting mileage on the car’s systems. Franck started the morning with some long runs and we were able to collect some good data from that.”

    Splitting the two Toyotas in the times were Nico Rosberg and Alexander Wurz for Williams. The pair each took charge of a FW29, continuing set-up work. Rosberg completed just 10 laps during the day, while Wurz covered 56.

    Rubens Barrichello was the leading Honda driver in 13th, with team mate Jenson Button just two-tenths down in 14th. Both concentrated on chassis set-up and aero evaluations.

    Although Toro Rosso’s Vitantonio Liuzzi failed to make it out on track in the newly-launched STR2, Red Bull’s Mark Webber and David Coulthard took 15th and 16th spots, as they continued development work on the new RB3. Completing the line-up were Super Aguri’s Anthony Davidson in 17th and Christijan Albers in 18th for Spyker.

    Testing is due to conclude in Barcelona on Wednesday.

    Unofficial Tuesday times from Barcelona:
    1. Felipe Massa, Ferrari, 1:21.181
    2. Kimi Raikkonen, Ferrari, 1:21.719
    3. Heikki Kovalainen, Renault, 1:21.819
    4. Fernando Alonso, McLaren, 1:21.901
    5. Giancarlo Fisichella, Renault, 1:21.997
    6. Lewis Hamilton, McLaren, 1:22.078
    7. Robert Kubica, BMW Sauber, 1:22.100
    8. Jarno Trulli, Toyota, 1:22.227
    9. Nico Rosberg, Williams, 1:22.249
    10. Alexander Wurz, Williams, 1:22.288
    11. Franck Montagny, Toyota, 1:22.476
    12. Nick Heidfeld, BMW Sauber, 1:22.618
    13. Rubens Barrichello, Honda, 1:22.669
    14. Jenson Button, Honda, 1:22.816
    15. Mark Webber, Red Bull, 1:22.916
    16. David Coulthard, Red Bull, 1:23.322
    17. Anthony Davidson, Super Aguri, 1:23.969
