The first Grand Prix of the new 2006 F1 season will take place in Bahrain on Sunday March 12th.

Just a quick reminder of the new rules of this season:

1- Return of tyre changes in pit stops.
2- 2.5 liter V8 engine instead of the old 3 liter V10 in 2005.
3- Qualifying change - new knock-out format:
Session 1, 15 minutes: 5 slowest drivers will be eliminated
Session 2, 15 minutes: next 5 slowest drivers will be eliminated
Session 3, 20 minutes: 10 drivers will compete for the grid


Go alonso, Fisico and Montoya! Hope Schumi's ass will be kicked once again this season too. :rolleyes: :tongue:

Re: 2006 Formula 1 season underway !

Only 10 drivers, wow that is too little.
Please dont tell me they still have the top 8 point system.
Before it used to be so much better with 10 6 4 3 2 1
And in the qualifying sessions, all the drivers have to do it in 15 mins? Isnt that alot?? I mean it would make more sense to me that the 1st session would be the longest since you have more drivers qualifying. And one little mistake by ANY driver can cost him his place in the race. Not really that great in my opinion.
I guess will have to watch it to get a better opinion of it and see how it works out.

I can't believe this guy Raikonen!!!

Is he from this planet or what???
he starts from the end of the grid and finishes on the podium... like if nothing happened ....

I think this season will be his...

Re: 2006 Formula 1 season underway !

im glad to see ferrari competative again.

schumacher did well...coulda won.

will make for an interesting season this year.

last year was supposed to be the old lion against the young wolf...but ferrari's scandalous preparations robbed us of that.

it will be an interesting one. a classic theme this year. one to remember i suspect. either the crown will be officially handed over after this head to head season...or we will see the timeless story of the old lion taking one last victory over the hyped young wolf.

He wants Roger and Marwan Back.

Lol think he lost his brain.

hehehhhe.. funny !!
I hate Ayman.. sometimes he sounds so dumb.. Marwan is better than him !

If u remember Nadim Mhanna, this guy was by far the best F1 comentator.

GO KIMI GO KIMI GO !!!

The flying Finn !!!!

I have been a Mclaren fan since 96 and you can call me a Schumi Hater !

M Sc can dream of the title only this year, and next year with Alonso coming on board, wohooooooooo, what a Mclaren will it be. I really wish Mclaren can solve their problems with Kimi, I so much love this guy.

SAME THING HERE !!!

At last someone who really appreciates the excellence in driving!!


But I don't share your enthousiasm for Alonso replacing Kimi at McLaren!

I mean it is a pity that Mc Laren looses Kimi! he is much more talented than Alonso! It is not official yet, but it seems that he will be moving to the scuderia... what a loss.!
