    I for one would like to see Alonso take the championship this year to atone for Ferrari's mistakes in strategy that cost him the last race of 2010 .

    I'd love to see Felipe take it this year! Never been much of an Alonso fan. Id really like to see Schumacher do a little better this year also. A lot of talent out there!!!

    Lets go Kubica! I know, I know, he has no chance.

    It doesnt really matter anyway because the sport just keeps going downhill. Too many rules trying to control too many things. In a few years we're gonna end up with spec chasis, weirder video game gimmicks, and even bigger primadonna drivers.

    I wish they would just let racing be racing and let the gears of progress continue to turn.

    I agree that the constant rule changes are confusing , and don't really add the cost savings measures that the FIA are trying to implement.

    There is a movement to change the engine spec , starting in the 2013 season to a turbo charged V4 , as a platform to develop a more "green" fuel efficient powerplant . At what point do they not just allow F1 to be the pinnacle of motorsport?

    Kubica has a ton of driving talent so it all comes down to how competitive the Renault is this year .

    The 2011 cars are set to unveilled at the end of the month.

    Now that team orders are legal , I see no way that Massa will be able place be any higher than second in the Championship , but time will tell . He seemed to lose some of his edge after his accident .

    I was glad to see Red Bull take it this year. They worked hard since taking over Jag a few seasons ago. Overall it wasn't a bad season imho. Watching Schumacher was just painful however.

    Red Bull definitely had the fastest car last year , but I would have preffered to see Mark Webber win it over Vettel , although I will admit he is a very talented driver , Sebastian just rubs me the wrong way.

    It was painful. Hopefully this year they will have him in a car that it spec'd to him and not a drop in car like he was in last season.

    Makes you think that maybe some of those championships had more to do with Ferrari and less with Schumacher.

    Robert Kubica, or Bob Cue-bitzer as David Hobbs calls him. My real choice is to bring back the Ice Man. Kimster was great, on the podium or in the ditch drunk you got the same interview.

    If you guys need racing we are in the heart of one of the best Supercross series in years, also worcs racing just started for off-road fans which lost a two time champion to a practice crash days before the season started, RIP Nathan Woods racers all tip your heads to the passing of a great man.
