Ferrari again!!! And M.Shumaker again!!!
It it more interesting to see who is going to be second than who is going to win because is allways the same one.

Did you see that idiot protestor who wandered on the track during the warm-up lap? What a loon!
He had his banner back to front so you couldn't even see his message!!! Definite loony of the month!

Ferrari best - Schumacher best - the result is probably always going to be the same at the moment, good for them, it is good to be top - but come on Button and BAR - getting there slowly, but not today though - shame

Thanks for the info on the web site Wedge - will have a look next time round - Monaco - maybe that will be more interesting but somehow I doubt it as there is no passing on that track



Hi5

Well the much-anticipated first corner clash didn't come to anything. Montoya, Raikkonen no score again and BAR / Renault providing the only serious competition. Behind the reds, there is a new order emerging - this is becoming a very interesting time in F1.

Now here's a thought - five straight wins and no-one else even visiting the podium on a frequently enough to challenge - how long before the championship is sewn up ?

On the contrary, Grainger - this was the most exciting start all season, what with Jarno Trulli pulling off a blinder from P3... proving once again that the Renaults are the best starters...

Of course thats wahts cost them coz since he was also running very low on fuel, meant he had to come into the pits first (apart from that minardi ) allowing Schumacher to stick around for a couple or more laps extra, giving him the lead...

But yeah, the battle for third place is now important, One-Two is a cinch...

And what in the WORLD has happened to McLaren?! I wasnt too fond of them earlier but even *I* am now feeling pity... No. 10 and 11 and beaten by BARs, Renaults, Saubers and whatnots...

No argument there, BD - Trulli off the line like sh*t off a shiny shovel. I was referring to JPM's pre-race histrionics; all the talk of a first-corner dust-up with MS failed to materialise.

With Grainger mentioning a first corner dust up...........I had a bet with I guy I worked with that Sato would get a rush of blood and smash into the Ferarri or the Williams (or both).

JPM seems to have the mouth for everything but not neccessarily all the talent to support it. He's bold, but thats about it...

Still like Alonso more than any driver bar MS, seems to have more talent than Button for sure (sorry if I offended the Brits on this forum )...
