F1: Alonso to join McLaren. World champion Fernando Alonso will leave Renault for McLaren in 2007. [BBC News | News Front Page | UK Edition]
This is a bad idea. Why announce it before the season? What do you think Briattore will do? Favor Alonso? I bet this means the new Renault is not up to snuf. Will next year be McLaren vs. Ferrari? I can't wait!

So, Michelin and FIA are in the middle of a fight. You see, FIA decided to return to the tyre change in the middle of the race. The reason behind not permitting the tyre change was to make Ferrari less competitive. The reason given for the tyre change was to reduce cost. After this season, FIA and the teams discovered they went to far. With the rules Ferrari didn't win a single race (except the one when Michelin threw a tantrum which, clearly doesn't count) and F1 lose money, even if it gain interest in the anti-Ferrari crowd, so, they decided to go back to the old rules. Michelin points out that this goes against the stated cost reduction reason and that changing tyres has nothing to do with racing. They are right in both counts, but I'm happy the decision went against them, because of what they did at Indy. I hope they don't win a single race, or sell a single tyre next year...

Formula Bullshit

F1: Alonso steers Renault to glory. World champion Fernando Alonso wins in China to help Renault claim the constructors' title. [BBC News | News Front Page | UK Edition]
What happened with Schumacher was incredible. Crashed by Albers from behind while going to the pits. Not only that commentaries try to confuse issues and assign blame to Schumacher. Rule of thumb, when someone crashes from behind it is their fault! Period. The rest is bullshit. Albers should be penalized. Rules will change again next year, Michelin is resisting the return of tyre changing. They are doing something really intelligent, claiming pit stops have nothing to do with racing and should be banned all together. It would be fun, but it was tried before. Alonso and Renault are the big winners. Next years will see the end of four teams, and there will be 6 new teams (maybe) including B teams managed by the same people. The saddest thing is Minardi, it will become Toro Rosso managed by the Red Bull team. Rumors have Raikkonnen in talks with Ferrari, I hope that is not true. Engines will get smaller... F1 made less money this year than last...
