No surprise to see the same driver confirmed for the next race.
I would keep him in the shed, on standby for every wet race

The New Zealand round of the A1gp is being held in Taupo this weekend. Qualifying will be important as passing will be difficult on most parts of the track. I just hope everything is ready as originally next year was the year they wanted to have their first race but when the chance to have it earlier came up they took it. 8)

A good crowd turnout is expected. :D

I was impressed with the way Jonny Reid didn't make a stupid pass attempt against the slower French driver. Better to finish third than not at all. 8)

German driver Hulkenburg looks like he's someone who has got a big future ahead of him.

I agree......with all of that.
The Hulk is quick in the wet too :shock:
I would think there would be some Mercedes money coming his way soon :wink:

Managed to score a free ticket to the Australian A1 GP on the weekend. Gremany dominated, NZ was almost there and China was very impressive.

I have to say Ho Pin Tung has nice big set with his move on the outside of turn 1 to take 3rd. You never know, we could see a Chinese F1 driver in the future.

Australia was a dissapointment with its result however Karl showed some spiritid driving despite having no chance to get some points.
Ok, Lewis may win the WDC in 07, but Sato will beat him in 08.

He surely must feel some discomfit sitting on them :lol:
The Hulk, JR, and Ho were in a class of their own.
Australia needs a good crew :cry:
J Reid seemed slower on his second set of tires???

The team from Aussie Vinyards would work. Maybe AJ needs to hang up the booties.

The Hulk is the class driver in this years A1GP. Another good drive from Jonny Reid. New Zealand are now second in the points table behind Germany. :woohoo:

I don't know what's going on with the Australian team. I expect alot better from them.
