With 2 months to go before the 2008 season kicks off in Melbourne let’s have a look at some early winners and loosers.
Looser – McLaren – Loosing Fernando Alonso (although they are probably happy they got rid of him)
Winner – Honda – Signing Ross Brawn as a team principal and Alex Wurz as the test driver – probably the best people around for these positions.
Looser – Ralf Schumacher – After being so sure he will be on the grid in 2008 he had to face the reality and admit his F1 racing is very likely over.
Winner – Renault – They have got Alonso back. He may be pain in the butt but he still is one hell of a driver.
Looser – Christian Klien – After loosing out the race for the Force India drive to Fisi and declaring no further interest in testing roles he is on the way out of F1.
Winner – Giancarlo Fisichella – He won the hottest contest for a 2008 race drive
Looser – Prodrive – They did not make it and they have given up
Winner – Williams – They still have Nico Rosberg
Looser – McLaren again – They will occupy the last garage in the pitlane
Winner – Heikki Kovalainen – Not wanted by Renault landed race seat with McLaren
Looser – Nelson Piquet Jr. – So far the only obvious No. 2 driver on the 2008 grid
