doesn't really look much different to last season save for the shaded lion.

here's larry's 2006 livery, gone is the long running deal with castrol in favour of Jack Daniels (but most of u knew that already i'm sure)

It isn't going to be Perkins Engineering without the green/red/silver Castrol livery. Now they look like Team Kiwi.

I think Ford has the best presented teams in the pits...HDT for the first half of season2005 was the worst design easily.

I think Motors TV covered it last season. I'm not 100% sure on that, but I am 100% certain that some channel does.

Adelaide should get it back :thumbsup:

Bollocks! It's ours now so :tease:

Go on any formula one forum and they all rate adelaide as one of the best street tracks in the world.. Melbourne was a flop.
I wasn't alive to watch the F1's at Adelaide...it woulda been hell good there aye!

Melbourne however is a very good track. I think it won "track of the year" in the F1 series in either 2003 or 04. But thats based on presentation and stuff...not the actual excitment. Speaking of excitement, last years M GP sucked. 2004's was even worse with Schuii leading every lap.

Hope Webber impresses out there! I rekon Chris from WRC is doing a better job at flying the Aussie flag in international motorsport.

That may be the case, and I won't disagree. But that doesn't make the Melbourne race a flop - it's still a good track, and the event is extremely well run (admittedly Adelaide was also well run).

Don't get your hopes up - Williams still need to catch up and give Webber the equipment he deserves. Atkinson is doing a great job no doubt, Webber is being held back by the car unfortunately.
