Lotus will likely be the best of the new teams. I think this season is gonna almost be two separate races, one for the established teams, one for the new teams (and back markers, likely). Lotus isn't gonna be near the top, but they do have some good talent on board.
I'm super freakin pumped. All the best drivers are in all the best cars. This is how F1 should be and it's great.
You should support McLaren really - two Brits, two most recent champions, and a British based team, what's there for you to not like? I don't see a problem with you supporting both teams, they're in two different races basically.
Well, the new season is approaching so I need to start looking into what to expect this season. So far the Bahrain GP is out and I wonder if the Japanese GP will survive. Lotus is a bit confusing since there are two teams with different management but both with Lotus chassis and Renault engines. Odd. The other main story is that the main tire supplier has changed from Bridgestone to Pirelli.
EDIT: I learned that Pirelli will be using six different colors to identify the tires that will be used during the races this season. And they are as follows
Orange = full wet
Light blue = intermediate
Red = super soft
Yellow = soft
White = Medium
Silver = hard
Lots of news from this weekend's GP. Sauber did incredible, particularly Perez. But they were unfortunately disqualified due to part of their rear wing not meeting the specs. They're appealing it. Also huge congrats to Petrov, making the podium. I think Kubica woulda been fighting for the lead if he got 3rd. I was lol'ing at the commentary when Alonso was following him. "Alonso is following Petrov, he's got a lot of experience behind him. Unfortunately he doesn't have a lot of experience passing him"
I wondered too how Kubica would have done given Petrov's third place finish which really surprised me given he only had five top ten finishes last year and his best finish was fifth at the Hunarian GP. It looks like the Lotus chassis is working out a lot better.
