not exactly top secret, but 35,000 Spaniards turned out to watch Alonso test Renault's 2008 car at Valencia on Tuesday. They left disappointed when he posted only the sixth fastest lap and finished with clouds of smoke billowing from the French power unit.

Alonso remained in sixth on Wednesday when Hamilton/Kovalainen and McLaren showed up, immediately locking horns with Ferrari at the top of the board.

What El Presidente thinks he knows and what he can prove are two entirely different things old bean Twisted Evil

The Kovalainen is a good outside punt for the drivers, once Hamilton has been shown up as nowt but a glorified kart driver Laughing

I heard Williams were going to be running different Liveries in every race this year to commemorate thirty years inthe formula. Can't remember where I heard it. Also anyone seen the paint job on the Honda? Looks worse than last year in my opinion!

I don't really like him much. He just seems a bit un-british to me. Maybe thats just because he wins stuff.

The Super Aguri Formula 1 team is entering difficult times. It's been said the team is in financial difficulties and after cancelling the team's presentation in Barcelona it has also cancelled the three-day test session at Circuit de Catalunya this week.

Okay who's going to give me odds at 2/1 that A) Super Aguri won't turn up Australia B) Hamilton comes 2nd in the championship AGAIN! and C) Coulthard nearly kills Wurz for a second season on the trot by decapitation?

I'd take just about any odds that Kovalainen outscores Hamilton this year.

I wonder who will lead the McLaren team out for Sunday's opener in Melbourne? A press release issued last week setting down the thoughts of the drivers and key management figures did not include the views of Ron Dennis. On the same day Norbert Haug, head of Mercedes motorsport, offered Dennis a vote of confidence. McLaren warned not to read anything into either event.
As for Ferrari, it cannot hurt them to see their major rivals dithering over leadership issues, as well as further search warrants being executed at Ron's drum over Spankygate Wink
