The 2007 FIA Formula 1 World Championship thread

So we've got a new season of Formula 1 racing ahead of us, with a lot of question marks. Will Fisichella be able to take the leadership roll and help keep Renault in the title fight this year? Will Kimi be able to turn in a solid season at venerable Ferrari? Will this be the year of McLaren's resurgence as Fernando Alonso lines up alongside sensation Lewis Hamilton?

Ferrari's 2007 entry




McLaren's devil-horned car, with a (hopefully!) more reliable engine compared to last year....




BMW Sauber's car looks much like last year's

Honda's 2007 car launched yestarday with no sponsorship livery on it yet, but you can see the car shape with all its aerodynamic flourishes.

Hey Mike aren't you just thrilled that Jacques Villeneuve has moved back to Montreal?

I know I'll be hanging out in Westmount more often!

I switched off from F1 after getting bored with the predictable Schumacher/Ferrari domination. What's changed over the last 5 years in the sport? Should I start watching it again?

GREAT looking cars!

I will be purchasing a few US Grand Prix tickets shortly...going with a co-worker from Sweden and his family.

Haha, ah Jacques our lovable loser. I still remember the race that decided his world championship victory - seems so long ago now.

That's awesome! I attended the Canadian GP last year and I think I'll go this year again, even if it's general admission tix again. 90$ for a three day pass ain't bad.

I'm excited! Hope to see Raikkonen win a few, and I'm curious about Spyker.

You missed a lot, at least one terrible year for Ferrari and one dramatic year for Renault and Ferrari
If you wanted to start watching it again, I think 2007 would be perfect. the reigning champion goes to McLaren, Kimi goes to Ferrari, and some interesting newbies.

I'm so excited!

Is that just me or is the Renault livery looks bloody terrible? It looks even worse when viewed in front...

Well it is going to be interesting and even a little sad without Schuey this year (and I am one of his haters), but it is shaping up to be a great year. Personally what I would really like is to see Fisi win the championship this year, with Mark Webber and Coulthard pushing for consistent podiums.
