Gentlemen Start Your Engines

It's very nearly time for the 2008 F1 season to begin! The 2008 season is shaping up to again be fantastic. Last year the drivers championship came down to a three way battle in the very last race. Newcomer Lewis Hamilton, the favorite going in to the final event, seemed to slip under the pressure and the determination of Kimi Räikkönen. Final points in 07 were 109 Alonso, 109 Hamilton, and 110 for Räikkönen.

Will 2008 be the year that Lewis clinches his first F1 Championship? Can Ferrari repeat and hold on to their slim advantage? And do not discount Fernando Alonso. He's back where he belongs with Renault but will his rookie teammate be a factor? Nelson Piquet Junior makes his debut in F1 along side Alonso at Renault and he has something to prove. I'll say now that if Alonso and Piquet qualify near each other at Australia they will collide in turn one.

To rev you up for F1 in 08, here is a video by Antti that gives you a taste for the rich history of the worlds top sport.

It's gonna be a good year.
