More interesting to watch Hamilton. He's always said that he regretted never racing Schumaker. Just a pity that the next race is in Valentia. Last time all the tv viewers saw (apart from the bridge) was miles and miles of concrete wall. After Valencia, where's the next one? I hope it's a good open circuit, Schumaker and all the front runners could make for a good race. BY.

Back to the split, sooner the better. F1 IS the pinnacle of motor racing, want to watch "Little" teams competing? plenty of the lesser formulae kicking around, but come to think about it, when THE German guy was thrashing everybody, instead of changing the rules to stop him, they should have insisted HE drove a go-cart while everyone else had Cars.

   Probably have beaten them on that as well.

I'd like to see a split but both side run in the same race, much like the other race series.....
 ....they've practically been doing that for the last 10 years anyway!

The big problem with A1GP just having a one design car is....its a one design class.  It might bring out the best driver, more likely it will bring out the best set-up team.  The "reason" for racing is not just to provide an entertainment, although thats a big part, but to improve the technology.  That can't happen with a one design class.  The big problem with classes being developed under rules is that nowadays you get designers who find the limits of the rules much faster these days.  The result is dominance by one manufacturer over a few years until either the rules get changed or someone finds a really cunning way to cheat, wen either everybody does the same cheat or the rules get changed.  Again.
Scumby coming back/staying away, dumb dictatorial series and team managers in F1?  Who really cares?  Does it actually matter?  Its all getting like the telly wrestling when it got the really talentless scriptwriters. 
I think I'll stick with the Moto GP and other bike racing.  At least theres real racing going on.  A pity about the amount of electronicery that has to go on, but still, it is an entertaining circus with more actual action than talking heads.

Yes F1 is a bit of a political circus bur Jensen Button and Brawn being the
'out 'n out' leaders at the beginning of the season was a bit off script!

So who will take the 2nd Ferrari now that the shoemaker has been ruled as "unfit" because of his neck injury? O maybe he just didn't really fancy going up against the current crop of young guns.
