We have talks about different Set Ups between the Cars, different Pitstop Strategy, Race Strategy and Penalties in Quali here. That is NOT what is to be Discussed in this Thread.
Getting a tad terse there, aren't you T..

& since when.. is Alonso "NOT" part of Team McLaren-Renault F1?

Surely the functional capability/winning potential of the lead driver - is a merit-worthy point of discussion - for this thread?
It's Monday morning, i'm as relaxed as i can be. ;)

To sum it up: Want to talk about Alonso in everything McLaren or F1 related? This Thread is fine.
Want to talk about Race Strategy of the Spa 6h, in which Alonso coincidentally participated? Make a Thread in the Forum i linked.

And let's end it on that Please.
Ok T, just saw this.. its all cool by me.. ta..

I would assume that, along with the new engine cover, there will be revised internals which could yield them some significant reduction in drag too.
Did they solve the problem with the engine cover overheating in some places? I seem to remember they had to drill holes on the back of the engine cover.

That hasn't been a problem since testing.
In 2007 I had the chance to go to a meet-and-greet with an F1 test driver. I decided not to as I didn't think he'd even amount to much...he was the BMW Sauber test driver and his name was Sebastian Vettel...

Tobi Grüner from AMuS says they've got all the details of Mclaren's Barcelona update and that the story will probably be on the website tomorrow.
Q: (Stefano Mancini – La Stampa) Kimi, will you help Vettel to win his championship this year?
Kimi Raikkonen: I can only drive one car, obviously.

Think of it this way, the leaks may be coming from inside Mclaren, off the record sources, that would be good, right?
