    The 4 & 6 cylinder engines are also allowed to be turbo charged.

    They are also able to switch to a two door coupe body shell if they wish, i.e Nissan could put in a GTR

    It still has to be a front engine, rear wheel drive configuration though.

    The control chassis will stay the same for all cars though.

    With New Zealand,

    I would put Scott Dixon as our #1 driver alongside Brendan Hartley with Mitch Evans as the reserve driver.

    Scott simply has more experience than either Mitch or Ritchie and really is the best driver we currently have racing.

    I’d say Bathurst is one of the hardest races, those supercars are such a bitch to drive, and with such differences in the track from the 300km/h conrod straight to the dipper and the tight turns around it.

    New South Wales gets to insanely high temperatures and its even hotter inside the car.

    That does sound similar to what the V8 supercars do, but on Saturday there are two races of the same distance and one race on Sunday of double distance.

    E.g. at the Sydney 500, the Saturday races are 125km (78miles) and the Sunday race is 250km(156miles) with Quali sessions for each race.

    Obviously the 5th of March is the day for the birth of great things.

    Long may F1F keep running.

    When I went to the Australian grandprix in 2014, I certainly didn’t need them and I did 4 years earlier with the 2010 cars.

    Not only are the new cars quieter the noise is also lower pitched and for me that was a bigger difference than the noise level itself. When the V8 super-cars went round they were equally as loud as what the 2010 car was but because it was more of a rumble than a scream I didn’t need the earplugs.

    So, no I don’t believe you would need them, they aren’t that loud and the pitch doesn’t hurt your ears as much even so.

    I’m hopeful that the McLaren livery may only be an iterim livery after seeing Button and to a lesser extent Magnussen’s helmet.

    Even Alonso’s helmet has got a large white section on it this year as well, so I think we could see a return to the white & red/orange car. Maybe not in testing, but hopefully it will be in Melbourne.

    @bradley13 That’s something I hadn’t even considered.

    That could well make sense, all we have to presume Vettel is going to Ferrari are some vague comments about whats happening with his future.

    OR

    Could we see Alonso switch to Lotus (again…) for the same reasons you think Vettel may want to go there. Historical basis for good chassis and the best powerplant avaliable. Makes for the best possible chance of another championship.

    I imagine we should know more in the weeks before/after Abu Dhabi, end of season wrapping things up nicely.

    Tander has just pulled out of Bathurst due to the extensive damage caused during practice this morning.

    I would love to see Scotty on pole, ideally with VanGisbergen and Coulthard 2 & 3, really annoy the aussies having kiwis 1,2,3 at their pride and joy. Even moreso with a Volvo on pole.

    And we have dipped into the 2:05’s in Quali courtesy of the flying kiwis, Fabian Coulthard and Shane VanGisbergen. With a 2:05.6080 and 2:05.7011 respectively.

    To preempt any questions, yes Fabian and David are related, they are second cousins.

    Excellent move, I think Keith. I completely agree with not running either one.
