I skipped last year's USGP, but I think I'm in the mood to go this year.


Interesting tire choice on the Ferrari. I heard the conditions described as "light snow".

The modern designs are cool, but they'll never touch the 1992 Williams, my favourite car ever

I'm very interested in how the US GP looks like this year. After the debacle last year I would think the demand for tickets will be much less.
I hope they all do a bit more research this year before they go anywhere with just one set of tires.

Nice that all teams go back using a new car from the first race on instead of using the old one for the first five races.

Couldn't dig up any McLaren pics yet, but here is the new BMW Sauber.....wow. Sex on wheels, baby. Love the livery and the colour scheme

I guess BMW took their paint scheme with them when they left Williams. Frank Williams' cars are a navy blue this year I believe.

Yeah, I don't think the new Mclaren has been seen yet.
All they've shown us is this orange thing.


here's an article mentioning that the new car won't be seen for a few weeks yet:

Ticket sales are slow so far, as would be expected.

Anyone else thinking of going?

Mercedes has always used that orange colour in test and concept cars - it goes back to the seventies. So they kind of keep it with tradition....

i remeber that sportscar with the wing doors when I was little - it was never really build, but I have an orange picture of it in my mind.
