The 2007 Formula 1 season is upon us
I’m not a big sports fan. I don’t particularly enjoy watching football or ice hockey or any of the other big sports in Sweden. Formula 1 on the other hand, I wouldn’t miss for the world. Now that the reign of Michael Schumacher and Ferrari is over, the field has opened up a lot. Coming into the 2007 season, it’s pretty much anyone’s game. My money is on Ferrari this year though. I believe Kimi Raikkonen will be hard to beat now that he has a more reliable car. But if Kimi doesn’t live up to his reputation as the fastest man in F1, Ferrari still has Felipe Massa who might very well give Kimi a run for his money. Rumor has it, McLaren has got their shit together this year though, so Kimi and Felipe better keep an eye out for Alonso and the newcomer Lewis Hamilton.
If you haven’t been keeping up with this year’s team configurations, there’s a pretty good preview of the 2007 season on the official Formula 1 website.
The opening event of the year (Melbourne) is just 5 days and 14 hours away. I can’t wait.
Kimi Raikkonen at the Abu Dhabi F1 Festival. I have a feeling we will be seeing this car out in front quite a lot this year.
