McLaren - F1 2007 season

Vodafone McLaren Mercedes F1 team has released pictures of the new car (MP4-22) and the driver for this season. The MP4-22 is by far the best looking car in the lineup for this year, I hope in terms of performance they are able to break the reliability jinx. Day 1 of testing in Valencia saw Alonso retire in the last 5 minutes of testing with a "minor oil leak" but the fact that he did 102 laps and was the first on the track was good news. Day 2 of testing was mildly hampered by wet track conditions but no car problems.

is a big fan of Ferrari and I wonder where his loyalities are this season. Can't wait till the first race, keep watching this space for more.

****&%$@#$%^$******* I don't mind McLaren but I can't stand baby Alonso. Now that the King has retired we have to look to Kimi and Massa to deliver. I just wish Alonso had gone out of the equation and I could have tried and supported McLaren. As it looks though, I hope they loose every damn game :|

I just may not even watch F1 anymore. Not worth it for me :). As they say I'm not really a true F1 fan, usually switching of the tube once Schumi is outta the game or something.

How can you link my name to McLaren? This time, as always I would be supporting Ferrari for the team championship... For the driver, I think I would support Felipe Massa, not Kimi. But I hope Kubica improves from his last year showing... He would be my dark horse for this season...

LoLz way to go Jax. I remember the 99, 2000 seasons and we guys fighting over teams. Bringing back a lot of nostalgic memories ;)

I like Felipe for just the fact that he supported Schumi well. THat he is a great driver is taken for granted :)

Jax - I didn't link you up to McLaren, just was loudly wondering where your money was this season. I was damn sure it was red.

Josh - Oh come on, have your pick.
