2006 was the closest F1 Championship in years, with Fernando Alonso clinching his second successive title in the last race of the season. Amazingly enough, the 2007 Championship is set to be even more competitive and more exciting. Not only have there been major changes at all the leading teams, in 2007 all the cars will be on the same Bridgestone tyres.
F1 Champion Fernando Alonso has switched from Renault to boost McLaren’s title hopes, but that also gives Giancarlo Fisichella the chance to take over as Renault’s lead driver, if he can hold of rookie Heikki Kovalainen. Ferrari has chosen Kimi Raikkonen to replace Michael Schumacher, giving him the job of putting the Italian Stallions back on top and Mark Webber has a new team and a new attitude, he’s out to put Red Bull Racing on the podium.
2007 will also be the season of the rookies. Heikki Kovalainen at Renault, Lewis Hamilton at McLaren and Adrian Sutil at Spyker. But we'll also have to pay attention to the test- and reserve drivers: Nelson Piquet Jr., Sebastian Vettel and Timo Glock. After the retirement of Michael Schumacher, the gap will be closed quicker than expected with all the upcoming talent.
The 2007 Formula One Championship will be more competitive than ever and nobody can predict how it will turn out.
