David Coulthard // Red Bull // 10 points
Juan Pablo Montoya // McLaren // 10 points
Michael Schumacher // Ferrari // 10 points

At the end of last season, if somebody had told me that 'reject' Coulthard was going to be equal on points with Schuey after 5 tracks I would have laughed in their face!
If they had said the same about Montoya I would have punched them in their face! He's awesome!!!

Why is it that only one car can be super quick, shuey at Imola Kimi here. Whats going on?

If there is overtaking on the track at Siverstone then that will tell you that it is the track design and not the regs that are to blame

for good racing with the current regs you need slow corners in to long straights in to slow corners! Ort mega looooong staights so that the cars can use the slipstream
its a combination of the tracks but mostly the rules

Kimi was also super quick at Imola... 'til the car broke.

Good race, but little overtaking again (as mentioned). Nice to see DC getting another point for RBR.. I think Klien would be a better team mate for him than Liuzzi.

Although Schuy is a good driver, I'll never get tired of seeing his car go wrong :p

My money is on Kimi for the win on Sunday, got 7/2 odds before Q1.
Nice... :) Also my FF1 had the top 5 finishers and Heidfeld (who collected FF1 points for moving up the field). Looks like the championship is going to be close this season with Renault, Toyota and McLaren all in with a chance. I've written Ferrari off this season. I can't see them coming back from where they are with the way the points system works now.

Do we need to moan about overtaking at every Grand Prix? We can't exactly do very much about it so why not just accept F1 for what it now is?

What, you mean almost as exciting as watching paint dry :)

It's supposed to be motor RACING, not motor "who has the best strategy and doesn't blow up" :D :D

If you want to watch racing, do as I do and watch NASCAR, MotoGP and Touring Cars instead. I still haven't bothered to watch a Formula 1 'race' this season.

Every race we hear the same old comments coming out about how boring it all is... however Formula 1 is the only motorsport that gets 100+ post threads for every race! I think Formula 1 is great, I sometime watch MotoGP or Rally but they don't come close to F1 for me. If it really was dull people wouldn't watch or talk about it... going by the amount of coverage F1 gets on this forum I guess it's not dull!
