    Hi
    Anyone following Formula 1?
    I have been following it for the last 6, 7 years and a McClaren Mercedes fan. I think it's become quite interesting of late with Ferrari with Kimi Räikkonnen & Filipe Massa trying to catch up with McClaren's Rookie Hamilton & Alonso, with now 4 races to go.

    Then there are these accusations levelled at Mercedes, which it says it'll successfully prove are unsubstantiated, but if proved could make them be thrown out in spite of having a very competitive car & very good drivers.

    For those following it, who do you support, ie drivers/team?
    Who do you predict will win this year?

    I cannot wait for the next race in Belgium. :drool:

    There's rumors bout McLaren stole one or more Ferrari's technology, but lot's of people aren't so sure bout that.

    Go Hamilton GO!!

    Yaaaaaaaa, Hamilton! I think he really deserves winning after the series of brillliant performances in spite of his age & "greenness" in professional F1 racing.

    I personally dont believe Mercedes gained anything or at least knowing. Their defense team is sure they'll prove their innocence. If not, it'd be most unfortunate for such a team to be missing in case they end up being thrown out.

    I am anxiously waiting for news from Paris(?) regarding that case. I hope & wish there's nothing culpable Mclaren has done.

    Nope it was not banned, instead they have been imposed with a record fine of $100 million and also the constructor championship points from Mclaren have been wiped off, but Alonso and Hamilton do not have their points docked...Read this

    $100m! That is a crazy sum of money. It is unfortunate how the whole thing has turned out.
    For tommorows race in Belgium, Räikkonen, Massa(both Ferrari), & 3, 4th position, Alonso, Hamilton, (both McClaren).... in that order.

    If Alonso & Hamilton drive like last Sunday, there's a chance of at least one of them beating one of the Ferraris ;)
