Will some zeros disapear after this weekend ?

Thanks to some interesting races and rather even midfield most of the drivers and most of the teams have some points to their names already. Only few zeros still remain (not including Super Aguri):

Drivers: Nelson Piquet, Adrian Sutil, Giancarlo Fisichella
Teams: Force India

Sutil came close, very close in Monaco. Fisichella’s best is 10th place in Spain. Nelson Piquet in clearly better car than Force India has only finished 2 races so far, with 11th place in Malaysia being his best.

Will they be able to break their scoring duck in France ? Looking at the predictions so far not too many people think so. But it may rain on Sunday :-)

2008 French Formula 1 GP – Wolf’s Race Preview

The 2007 French GP was to be the last one held at the Magny-Cours track. But when the 2008 F1 calendar was published last summer, the French GP at Magny-Cours somehow made the cut again. So for the second year running we have the last French F1 GP at this rural track although the contract exists untill 2011…

Last year the French GP brought the first 1-2 finish of the season for Ferrari and turnaround in Raikkonen’s fortunes. This was also the 7th win at this track for the Ferrari team in last 11 years. (During the 2007 French GP weekend Ferrari also launched criminal investigation against certain Nigel Stepney.)

Both Ferrari drivers are full of confidence ahead of the 2008 race but at the same time wary of the competition from McLaren and BMW. The fact that Lewis Hamiton will be relegated 10 places on the grid following his pit lane crash with Raikkonen in Montreal sure does not harm Ferrari chances in France.


Kimi Raikkonen – How He Won The 2007 Title

Here is a short re-cap of how Kimi Raikkonen’s season went from Australia to Brazil, race by race.

Formula 1 – French GP Race Review (with video)

It took them quite some time, but Ferraris returned to the top. They were helped by not so perfect start from Hamilton and Alonso being way down the grid did not harm them too.

Race start:Alonso’s move on Heidfeld

Formula 1 – French GP Race Result

Kimi Raikkonen returned to the top of the podium, first time since Melbourne. Felipe Massa finished 2nd. Lewis Hamilton on the podium again, however this is the first time he finished lower than he qualified.Race results here:

GP2 – Scary Magny Cours Crash

After the big accident of Robert Kubica, only few weeks later there was very scary looking crash of Ernesto Viso shortly after French GP race start …

He walked away … One lucky boy …

Formula 1 – French GP Qualifying

Massa returned Ferrari back on pole. But Hamilton will be right there next him on the front row. Kimi on P3, Kubica P4. Also good qualifying run for both Renaults. Alonso did not set a time in Q3 because of what looked like engine trouble … That may mean further trouble for him if he will need new engine …

Qualifying Results Here:
Sato will loose 10 places due to penalty from last race.

Formula 1 – French GP Saturday Practice

McLaren made it first time to the top this weekend with Hamilton 0.06s ahead of Massa. Kimi in 3rd. Alonso only made 1 competitive lap and his time was enough for 6th. Renaults were the 3rd best team at the last practice. Rosberg again made it to top 10. The quali will be interesting. Lots of cars are on similar pace, it will be interesting to see who will make it to top 10. Also it still remains to be seen how quick Alonso really is here …

Saturday Free Practice Times Here:

Formula 1 – French GP – Friday Practice

As usual nobody really knows what Friday times mean, but there must be some smiles in Ferrari garage. Both their cars are separated only by few tenths and well clear off McLarens. Williams and Red Bul managed to sneak between Alonso and Hamilton. Ferrari, McLaren, Williams and BMW had both cars in top 10. Hondas still haven’t found enough speed to jump ahead of Sato. Renault people believe they are better than BMW now, but times from P1 show a bit different story …

Friday Practice 1 Times Here:

Formula 1 – French GP Magny Cours – Preview

There is a reason to celebrate! This is the last time we will see the F1 race on this dull race track. The contract is over, there will be no race here in 2008 and I do not see Bernie bringing F1 race back here again.

There are lots of corners here, 17 in total making aero very important. The overtaking is more less impossible under normal circumstances. So the qualifying and grid positions are as important here as they are in Monaco. If we want some excitment we need rain or some safety car.Here is a Magny Cours lap with Kimi Raikkonen.
