Ok, Lewis may win the WDC in 07, but Sato will beat him in 08.

Not a shabby start to the season I must admit.....now lets just hope Zauggie can keep it together than the rest of the season....Not like last year :cry:



One small note I think is worth mentioning is that there was a Red Bull drivers day at my home circuit where Zaugg was supposed to be teaching the youngsters the basics etc.............It may be interesting to note that he put in a lap time .4 slower than mine.. :duel: :lift: :sb: :box: :lol: :lol:
