    Now some people on Autosport forums suggest that LH hitted the button that switches the pitlane speed limiter on and off and that is why the car suddenly slowed down. Look at the video before the FOM takes it down:

    As far as I know, Hamilton was given a one year contract for the 2007 season and paid relatively very little for it. The terms of whatever contract he has are subject for renewal for the 2008 season.

    Next year will be interesting for all of the teams.

    The required for 08 manual gearboxes should remove a lot of
    the transmission issues all of the teams have experienced
    and require more skill of the drivers.



    I think you have this wrong, they will not be manual (ie. stick shift) boxes..that would be like going back to the 19th century in F1 terms. A modern F1 car has no room for a shift lever anyway. Traction control is banned however.

    ferrari did it this time as a TEAM, RACE AFTER RACE, POINT AFTER POINT... well-earned and well-deserved...

    Re: Raikkonen is Champion!! FINALLY!

    CGT, I am 100% correct.

    The Playstation era is over!

    Manual gearboxes are the rule beginning with the 2008 season.

    We will now see who can really drive.

    Here is a summary of the mechanical changes for 2008:

    - 2.4 V8 engines (slightly less power)if a team cannot get
    2.4 engines they may use a 3.0 V10's.
    - reduction in weight by 50kg
    - no electronic aides that replace driver skill
    - 10% reduction of down force
    - all cars with a starter button
    - no spare car
    - standard brakes and calipers - standardized among teams
    - no power steering
    - manual gearbox with mechanical linkage and a clutch pedal with stadard internals
    - ECU to be governed by the FIA (also sensors)

    This has been done to make F1 more SPORTING by increasing reliance on driver skill, reduce costs to independent and midpack teams and to reduce track building costs and increase track worker safety due to ever increasing speeds.
