Formula 1 2008 - Race 1 Australia
« on: Sunday March 16, 2008, 04:33:52 PM »

We have had a few rule changes. Most notably, no more traction control, and the snake (behind the safety car) is now a crocodile...

Massive first corner incident taking a few cars out. Another big bump between Massa and Coulthard, and Timo Glock launched himself across the grass.

Raikkonen seems to have forgotten about the lack ot fraction control and had a few moments, and then finished it by parking up at what looked like the start of the pit lane

There seems have been a few reliability issues, with a lot of people dropping out. Too many to name. I feel for Kovalainen, though. Seemed to do well, and then all of a sudden seemed to be 6th out of 8.

Nice one for Hamilton, though!!
