Ahead of 2008 British Grand Prix – From the news

David Coulthard

Rumour described as “strong” suggests that David Coulthard may announce his retirement from F1 during the upcoming British GP that may be his last home Formula 1 race. No one suggests that this would be his last race however. He made recently several remarks that would not any “retirement” annoucement from Coulthard shocking, including his speach after Canadian podium. It would also make some sense out of Vettel’s claim that he knows a little bit of the internal situation and is very confident about his future. I would however also not be suprised if we hear Coulthard coming out soon rubbishing all the retirement talks.

Last year Red Bull ran a special Faces for Charity livery at Silverstone, in 2005 again Red Bull had The Force with them and special Star Wars livery on their cars. This year we are about the see the Batmobile and special Batman livery on – suprise surprise – the usually most boring team with most boring livery – Toyota … Can’t wait to see that one :-) .

Kimi Raikkonen will very likely make use of one penalty free unscheduled engine change ahead of 2008 British GP following the troubles he faced for half of the Magny Cours race 2 weekends back.

And Toro Rosso have been promised stability for 2009 by Dietrich Mateschitz, they should only expect uncertainty from 2010 onwards …

    Hey, Barrichello! I forgot him at all, he’s such unperforming dirver that even forgot about him and Honda!! Well, the things are clear, he’s not doing his best season, and also not showing that he’s the best drvier over there. Honda owns a big budget, they could decide to break the contract early and bring in a new driver. Or wait until the end of the season, and look back seeking what Barrichello did for them this season. About Jenson, I think he is still the british promise he was, never should get eclipsed by Hamilton, because Jenson Button owns much more expirience than him and my opinion is that owns great talent to keep kicking with that F1 car he has placing it in Q2.
