Autosport is reporting that Michael has extended his Ferrari contract until the end of 2006, with all the key players within the team (Managing director Jean Todt, technical director Ross Brawn, engine director Paolo Martinelli, chief designer Rory Byrne and head of engine design Gilles Simon) all extending their deals to finish at the same time.

I hope that Williams, Mclaren or someone else kick their arse at least once (either in the constructors or drivers championships) before the "dream team" splits up, otherwise they'll go down in history as being unbeatable.

I'm not saying they don't deserve to do well, because they're all very talented, and work bloody hard. I'd just like to see a bit of variety before 2007...

Lets hoping Renault and Willmas have a strong weekend to help shake up the 2 world titles


Gonna be hard for Renault here as there lack of stright line speed on the 3 big teams is gonna make a big diffrence


It would be ace if Montoya or R. shumey could win the race

McLaren's last race before they introduce their real dog of an unreliable car and smash Kimi's world championship hopes?

I fully concur with your assertions there. McLaren aren't exactly known for producing reliable cars in the last couple of seasons, so I'm extremely optimistic they will continue in the same vein from Nurburgring onwards.

Wonder if the story in the 'screws of the World' was true about some lower level Ferrari engineering staff trying to hawk a CD-ROM of technical drawings, info, etc.? I'm always sceptical of the tabloids, and have to question why someone with an essentially secure position in the best F1 team of recent years would want to jeopardise their livelihoods, even for a bit more dosh? That said, if it were true, I wonder which team may have bought the info as mentioned in the story?

Am I right in thinking that Renault are running with a new engine this weekend with an extra 1000 rpm?

I hope they test and test!!! Before Nurbungring. Haven't seen any competitive times yet from the new car. I think DC can't wait to have the new 'cos he's struggling with the old one! Kimi is probably okay with the old car, but I can see Ferrari gettting stronger, so I think it's best to go for the new car.

Its pretty wet ... going to be interesting!

I'm sure a few will go off...

Schumacher leaves the track and still beats Raikkonen No panic, nice and calm, corrected the problem and went on to post a good time.

Barrichello goes faster due to not making a mistake
