Default Australia F1 race

Can you believe that McLaren Mercedes were on the podium twice? Michael was 4th because he was called in to remove parts of the body of the car. (I think too much time "off" the track)Anyway, did anyone else watch it?

The problems that befell Michael and fuel stops made it a rather exciting race..

I think the rule changings were a gooddecision for the sport. I hope the next few races will be exciting like the first one. But think if Ferrari will take the new car the other teams have no chance. Michael broke the Maranello Lap record with 1 second under. One second in formula one is a world of its own.

The new McLaren/Mercedes car to be introduced around the 6th GP is said to be formidible and will should keep them competitive with Ferrari. Expect red on the next podium...

Both Reubens and Shumacher were both still driving the 2002 cars, Ferrari (before this race where Barichello damaged the car) said they won't introduce the 2003 'til the first race in Europe and the next race is in Malaysia, wonder if they will put Reubens in the spare car or the new one? Any reports?

Reubens eats the dark meat....spare car. Michael will debut the new car first. He has been testing it for over a year.... Michael will eat the white meat as long as he is around....if Reubens doesn't like it he will eat Ferrari crow....
