Tired, I got up at 1:45am <img border="0" alt="[cwrumad]" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions050.gif" /> to go and get Webmaster to bring him to mine and watch the race, Dropped him back off at 5:00am this morning, Well worth getting up for though, Bring it on F1 <img border="0" alt="[cwsmokin]" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions036.gif" />

Great build up to the new season of F1, The changes didnt appear to effect any team to much suprisingly, i thought the launch control would have caused some problems ???? Farrari had this one in the bag right from the start, however the temperature favoured the bridgestone tyres as it was cooler than expected. Maybe a different ball game in two weeks when there should be hotter temperatures and Michelin should do the job allot betta than today ??
Rubens was Right up there behind Shewy until approx half way then he completed the race with well dodgy brakes still achieving a great second place behind Schumacer. Renault achieved a podium position (3rd) and that was a shock however very well deserved. Mc Laren (Mercedes) need to do somethink real soon as 1 can siezed up and the other (Coulthard) finished a mere 8th place. It was only 2 seasons ago McLaren were right up there kickin A*s with ferrari. I hope the remainder of the races are not as one sided as ferrari will simply walk away with all the silverware. Williams and Mclaren need to pull there finger out and start achieving what ferrari achieve every race. Need to see Renault keeping up the good work also. What did you think of the race and new rules ??

Official Race Review from F1

Michael Schumacher cruised to victory as Ferrari kicked off the season with an imperious 1-2 at Albert Park.

In truth, Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello were so much quicker than the rest of the field, led by Renault's Fernando Alonso, that it was almost embarrassing.

Schumacher even came within a matter of yards of lapping Juan Pablo Montoya in the closing stages, before backing off and nursing his car to the line.

He will be delighted to have made such a positive start to his title defence, especially as supposed title rivals Montoya and Kimi Raikkonen had wretched afternoons.

The Colombian could do no better than fifth, while his future McLaren team-mate retired early on.

It was always likely that the Ferraris would disappear into the distance from the point both cars got off the start flawlessly.

Behind them, someone obviously forgot to tell Renault that launch control has been banned because both Alonso and Jarno Trulli got away phenomenally. The Spaniard leapt to third with the Italian moving up to fifth.

Alonso's swift getaway so worried Montoya that the Colombian outbraked himself at turn one and ran wide, dropping down to eighth.

Montoya soon made partial amends by muscling past Ralf Schumacher for seventh and later pulled off memorable moves on Trulli and Jenson Button.

But the Colombian’s good work was undone by two delays at pitstops, meaning he had to work harder than he would have liked for a mere fifth place.

It might have been very different had he not messed up his start so Montoya will be kicking himself.

As ever, team-mate Ralf did his job in a more understated manner and passed Button in the pits on his way to a distant fourth. The German looked pretty out of sorts – but then again, so did everyone else next to the Ferraris.

Schumacher and Barrichello traded fastest laps in the early stages before easing off after the first round of pitstops.

The German only really asserted his superiority after his second stop, by which time Rubens was beginning to suffer from brake problems.

Barrichello’s second place was never under threat, though, as the Michelin runners had problems of their own. All the French tyre manufacturer’s teams suffered from severe graining in the cool conditions.

For that reason, it was no surprise that Alonso emerged as the pick of the bunch because the Renault seems much kinder on its rubber than the others.

Jenson Button’s BAR suffered worse than most and the Brit had to settle for sixth place, ahead of Trulli’s Renault.

After his barnstorming performance in qualifying, Button had probably hoped for more but it still represents the first time in five attempts he has scored points at the opening race of the year.

BAR at least had the consolation of outpacing McLaren who can’t have had many weaker races than this in recent years.

David Coulthard, the only leading driver to opt for a two rather than three-stop strategy, finished eighth but never remotely threatened the cars ahead.

Team-mate Raikkonen spun out of the race on lap 10 after his engine seized up. The Finn had been struggling to make an impression anyway, running 11th and even suffering the ignominy of being passed by Felipe Massa's Sauber.

It is unlikely the Finn stuck around to watch the rest of the race – but he wouldn’t have missed much anyway.

It was the sort of one-sided race that became all too familiar in the dark days of 2002 – great if you’re a Ferrari diehard, purgatory if you simply want to see good racing.

It seems unthinkable that people were predicting only last week that this would be one of the closest seasons on record.

Don’t despair just yet, though – there are still 17 races to go and weather conditions at the next two should benefit the Michelin runners.

But Ferrari have thrown down the gauntlet in dramatic style and at the moment their rivals don’t seem to have any answer.

Lap 10 ended the race for me but I did watch it till the end.

Bernie Eccleston is going bananas as the new regulations were supposed to make the races more for the viewer and also slow the driers down.
Lap records broken and a white wash by Ferrari again?

From last season there was a catch up period where teams began to close the gap, Williams were the best team for this mid season. But I was horrified to see the domination that Ferrari showed on race day. At such a speed and reliability in the same package. The tyres have been said to have played a big part in the final results this weekend but I don’t see that could have made such a difference to the results. After all Michael was over 60 sec ahead of the main pack. And like it was mentioned that he probably could have lapped Montoya for the hell of it.

Well I will be watching the next race in Malaysia with a hope that there is more competition and a closer finish. But hey its race one and still everything to go for 17 races to go ?

Any one got any idea’s what can be done to close the gap?
