I predict internal friction between the drivers at both McLaren and Ferrari and those 2 teams can still not be caught by the others while we enjoy said soap. Don't think Alonso can make the Renault fast enough and he will start whining about it. I expect Honda to get better and this means that the competition behind McLaren and Ferrari will heat up; and hopefully that will make the season worth watching...

(I make it up while I type )

I'm sure drag is low relative to downforce generated, but absolute drag has to be massive. I know it's the nature of open-wheel/open-cockpit racing, but all the crazy overlapping wings moving air to create downforce have to contribute to a ton of drag.
True. It will be interesting to see what they run at a low downforce track, or if they use the usual "our car isn't good at this track" excuse.

So what, F1 season begins and no talking!? For shame! I keep hearing that McLaren (Ham.) was sent down from 5th to 8th, after the race was over. Why? I have yet to hear a good reason...can anyone confirm?

Ok you're right, lets crank it back up!

LONDON (March 30) - FIA wants to stay clear of the situation involving its president, Max Mosley, and a British tabloid that reported he engaged in sexual acts with five prostitutes in a scenario that involved Nazi role-playing.

"This is a matter between Mr. Mosley and the newspaper," the governing body of world auto racing said Sunday.

Mosley, the son of British Union of Fascists party founder Oswald Mosley, reportedly took part in the scene on Friday at a London apartment near his home, according to the News of the World in a front-page story.

In a video on the newspaper's Web site, it shows a man identified as Mosley arriving at an apartment. The man is then greeted by a woman playing the role of a prison guard, checking his hair to see if he has been kept clean "at the other facility."

Later, another woman in a prisoner's uniform enters the video and the man said to be Mosley is heard speaking German.

The paper said it obtained the video from its "investigators," but gave no further details.

Formula One chief executive Bernie Ecclestone said the sport shouldn't be affected by the report.

"Assuming it's all true, what people do privately is up to them," Ecclestone told the Times of London in a story posted late Sunday on its Web site. "Knowing Max it might be all a bit of a joke."

Some Jewish groups already have called for Mosley to step down, according to the Times.

Mosley has been married to his wife, Jean, since 1960, the News of the World said.

His father was a former British politician who served in Parliament for both the Labour and Conservative parties. Oswald Mosley died in 1980.
