    Raikkonen racing for Ferrari is going to rock the 2014 F1 season. Sorry Vettel, you are not invincible . . .

    I will miss the high revving V-8's, but this could be a year to remember.

    Beyond the sorting out of the new technology, managing the reduced fuel allocation and dosing the 150 hp KERS boost will put a huge premium on team strategy and driver skills - with the possibility of a lot more late race position changes.

    Do you think they'll ever have a real top tier racing league again without all this fake passing and car limiting rules?

    Good question. It does start to seem like a racing video game where whoever is second suddenly has a faster car. I am just glad this season is shaping up to be more than just vettel running parade laps out in front for the whole season...

    Hey ETK -

    Please post some pics of your 1967 GTV. Is it for sale?

    Hi Richard, here is the GTV in its current state. It is being built to be vintage race legal (c sedan), but also will be registered for street use. Should be complete in the next few months. I can't wait to take it to the track. I don't expect it to be very street friendly, but but it will be registered at least at first. I can post up more pics in another thread if there is interest.

    Definitely not for sale though...lots of sentimental value attached to the car.

    New Red Bull RB10. Note the absence of the phallic nose piece we're seeing so much of in the new designs.
