    I like to start it off with posting the pratice times of today's session

    from http://www.planetf1.com/news/story_15778.shtml

    btw, here's the session one times:

    01. DAVIDSON BAR 1'29"447
    02. M.SCHUMACHER Ferrari 1'29"631
    03. BARRICHELLO Ferrari 1'29"865
    04. WEBBER Jaguar 1'31"448
    05. ZONTA Toyota 1'31"587
    06. RAIKKONEN McLaren 1'31"643
    07. MASSA Sauber 1'31"673
    08. R.SCHUMACHER Williams 1'31"680
    09. ALONSO Renault 1'31"768
    10. BUTTON BAR 1'31"770
    11. MONTOYA Williams 1'31"782
    12. PANIS Toyota 1'31"910
    13. COULTHARD McLaren 1'32"301
    14. SATO BAR 1'32"500
    15. TRULLI Renault 1'32"696
    16. DA MATTA Toyota 1'32"915
    17. GLOCK Jordan 1'33"925
    18. HEIDFELD Jordan 1'33"971
    19. KLIEN Jaguar 1'34"402
    20. PANTANO Jordan 1'34"488
    21. WIRDHEIM Jaguar 1'35"043
    22. BAUMGARTNER Minardi 1'35"186
    23. BRUNI Minardi 1'35"455
    24. LEINDERS Minardi 1'37"609

    the bolds are the lap records.

    things to note:
    -Schumacher really didn't run all that much in the 2nd session, he claimed to have some sort of hydraulic problem
    -Landers(Minardi test driver) and Panis kinda hit each other, and those two have words.
    -The top 6 from the sessions combined would be Raikkonen, Davidson, Button, then M Schumacher, R Schumacher, Coulthard
    -Fisichella has an engine failure in the first session and will start ten places back from wherever he qualifies

    A really, REALLY fast test driver for BAR. He is looking for a ride next year, primarily w/ Williams.

    Can you imagine how great williams would be if JV and Davidson had formidable BMW power? :eek:

    BAR :x:

    Davidson really impresses. I know he's driving a 006 with a higher redline, but still, he's consistantly near the top of the Friday timesheets. Last week - Monaco - his first time driving the circuit.. 2nd! :coold:

    I kinda wish Richards put Davidson in Sato's car :o

    :eek: F1-Live didn't have this morsel on their site.


    Formula 1 will have a revised qualifying format as of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone on July 11. Replacing the existing single car format will be a one hour session split into two 20 minute sessions with a 20 minute break in between.

    Each car must complete six laps in each of the sessions with the fastest time from each period aggregated to produce the overall grid time. Both sessions will be run with free fuel levels, meaning that once again we will see a return to flat out qualifying with cars in their optimum specification.

    The parc ferme rules will continue but teams will fuel the cars after qualifying in preparation for the race. Many of the teams are believed to have pushed for the second session to be run with race fuel levels but Ferrari's Jean Todt pointed out that if fuel conservation was a factor, drivers would then crawl round on their in-laps having set their quick time, leading to potentially hazardous situations.A prime consideration has been a simple format that is easily understandable and any aggregate system could be seen to fly in the face of that, but timing equipment is considered sophisticated enough not to make this a problem.

    :slap:

    I figured that out. What's the new format? I live in Nascar-land, so F1 is NEVER reported. All I hear I get from the F1 Fairy (not Schumacher, though i hear there is a deal in the works) who stops by about one every two weeks or so to fill me in on the major things and to do her laundry...

    it's far more exciting to see them qualify with other cars on the track

    I loathed 1-lap quali. This brings back the gladiatorial atmosphere...remember Juanker's 5 P1s in 2002 in a slower car? :bowdown:
