Ferrari got the whoop ass! David Coulthard is still as slow as a wet week, though aster than Montoya which i thought would be the other the way round. Any new pictures of the new Ferrari with new aerodynamics? maybe thats why its got some more pace
hey check it out i didnt say anything negative about ferrari!
erm, what does that thing sticking out from the engine cover actually do? and dont some of the other new formula 1 cars have 3 wings(in 1 that is) on the front?
From what i have heard its to help smoothen the air flow to the rear wing. I think the wings are thinner than past attempts. Not sure if other teams have had that rubber underneath their front wings. Just something new for the car.
Exactly right mate, considering they've won the last 3 driver and the last 5 constructors championships man they are just a barrel of laughs. I can picture the other teams grinning and laughing as Micheal and Rubens continues to dominate. Get a life idiot
