Button reportedly quits B.A.R for Williams. But David Richards has responded with a statement that Jenson is under contract with B.A.R for 2005 and finger crossed Williams yesterday's announcement has not only been premature but also invalid.

On the other side, Williams has publicly insisted Jenson will be driving for the team next year, despite B.A.R's claims that the English racer is still contracted to them.

The controversy has begun.

Poor Toyota's Cristiano da Matta will not be driving for the rest of season. He will be replaced by test driver, Ricardo Zonta.

13th Round, Hungarian GP at Hungaroring on August 15, 2004.

Such as Monaco, Hungaroring has reputation as it comes one of circuit where good grid is crucial here particularly if you would like to hoping to win.
So far, 9 of 18 drivers succeeded from poles including last 3 years; Fernando Alonso (2003), Rubens Barrichello (2002), and Michael Schumacher (2001). Plus fact that 8 of 9 winners started the race on 2nd (three times) or third (five times), these indicates, arguably the qualifying session becomes important matter.

Hungaroring, some says it's 'weird' venue; inconsistency for 4,358 kms effect on unexpexted dusty on track. If you couldn't control your car, you will lose your grip. With its slow corners and its narrow straights, overtaking at the Hungaroring is far from easy and many say its characteristics more closely resemble a street circuit than a purpose-built track.

The circuit itself notoriously tough on tyres!You can't deny the situation where the high temperature on track getting disadvantage for tyres. The hottest track, and due to surface is often dusty, so degradation can be high because the car will slide around a lot. High downforce, traction, decent balance and good turn-in are critical factors in here.

Generally it will take three-stops.

Alonso outshone all others by taking podium last year, can he do it again?Or Schumi wants to payback his poor last year's performance and helping the team for grabbing the constructors title?

Zsolt, it's time for showing your capability at homeland. Wish you all the best!

so schumi is set for winning 12 races in 1 season

qualifying results:

1 M. Schumacher
2 R. Barrichello
3 T. Sato
4 J. Button
5 F. Alonso
6 A. Pizzonia
7 J. Montoya
8 G. Fisichella
9 J. Trulli
10 K. Rikknen
11 M. Webber
12 D. Coulthard
13 O. Panis
14 C. Klien
15 R. Zonta
16 N. Heidfeld
17 G. Pantano
18 Z. Baumgartner
19 G. Bruni
20 F. Massa


all red front row, then the BAR's behind. Pizzonia outqualified montoya though not by much. hopefully the race will be more competitive though the ferrari's seem to be in control.

about the button saga i don't think he should levae. bar are not just an up and coming and improving team but they look to be even more competitive next season and may even be in with a chance at the title. at any rate they look to finish third in the contructors championship.

and with ferrari's seventh one two finish of the season, the constructors title is given to ferrari for a record sixth time and at spa schumi could wrap up the driver's title. schumi's now got 12 wins in this season so that's another record, as well as seven in a row.here's the full result:

1. michael schumacher
2. rubens barrichello
3. fernando alonso
4. juan pablo montoya
5. jenson button
6. takumo sato
7. pizzonia
8. fisichella
9. coulthard
10. webber
11. panis
12. heidfeld
13. klien
14. bruni
15. baumgartner

not an exciting race, too predictable. all the teams just seem to be underperforming compared to ferrari. even bar could only muster a solid performance of points and no podium. is jenson going to finally win a race this season? he really deserves it! and what happened to mclaren! their new car is not living up to expectations and more than anyone else i feel sorry for kimi who i think could win a drivers championship but the car just isn't performing and i can't remember the last time he finished a race!

I added the facts; Schumi makes 62nd poles, 82nd career win and outpacing his win record he made in 2002 plus together with Rubens helps the team winning the 6th in row constructors champion. Scuderia extends the records!

Expect not much if you saw the track is far from easy to overtake such as Hungaroring. Look, Montoya seemed lose his enjoyable moments with Williams, Sam Michael has changed mind for the unuse-Walrus nose..and McLaren..I must say MP4-19B has nothing to be proved either!

14th Round, Belgian GP at Spa-Francorchamps on August 29, 2004

Absent last year, Spa is now back on calendar this season. Predicated as the best circuit chosen by either engineers or drivers, the longest lap of the year and being favoured by top drivers. Even it had been a change particularly to the circuit at the last 'Bus Stop' corner will slow the cars down slightly, yet none of circuit gets high plus assessment but Spa. Eau Rouge and Blanchimont certainly will give enjoyable move and exciting about to watch to. And Spa is supreme challenge more than anything.

Ayrton Senna, Mika Hakkinen and Michael Schumacher performed well in there; Senna won 5 times, Schumacher this year could likely creating 7th win wonder. His first career win created at Spa when driving Jordan in 1991 and continued again at following year took first podium when defending Benetton.

This track technically needs aerodynamics efficiency, high-speed stability, traction, decent balance and good turn-in are factors that you can't leave behind. You can show your capability of making overtaking manoeuvre here, as I wish to tell you, accident rate at Spa is terribly high. Plus you also have to take into account the notoriously fickle wheather conditions, which can completely upselt all of your careful calculations.

It would be a singularly appropriate location if, he would be creating 13th season win and being the highest of world champion's record holder if he clinches his 7th world wonder this weekend.

The closest rival is his team-mate Rubens only could aftering his standing table but not pretty enough to fail everything insight of ahead.

Who can stop Schumi this time?

I almost forgot this:

Well Kimi has beaten 7th Schumi's consecutive season win. It's good for McLaren to showing they're back again but it should've become homework for fixing irreliability and inconsistency at following rounds.

Schumi has done it. The world champion has extended the record of 7th world wonder, beaten up the records which were made others previously world champion era that to whom he is far leaving behind about. Well victory laps at Monza will be a special way as it comes essentially to 'attest' his 7th world wonder in front of most Scuderia fans.

Congrats Scuderia, Forza Schumi and Forza Rubens!!

Toast for everything!

ROSSONERO BRAZILIANS TO THE MONZA RACE TRACK
03 September 2004 16:11


Nelson Dida, Marcos Cafu, Kaka and Serginho spent the whole morning at the Monza race track, along with the Formula one pilots. The 'tour' started at 11am CET, along with race director Daniele Galbiati. They did not meet their fellow countryman Rubens Barrichello as scheduled, but talked a lot with Williams Bmw pilot Pizzonia; then they had a look at the cars. The visit, which was hailed by great enthusiasm at the paddock, ended at Toyota, where the Brazilians were received by test-pilot Ricardo Zonta. Cafu said: 'The Monza race track is more beautiful than I had expected. To see the cars speeding on the track at over 300km an hour gave me a special emotion.' Cafu also spoke about the upcoming season which kicks off in the day of of the Monza granprix. He said: 'We'll try to win again the title, and along with this, the Champions League. It will be a hard season because the other teams have really reinforced.' Kaka did not want to spoil the party with the question of the national team. He objected: 'I don't want to speak about it. The Brazilian national team have called me up since I was child, I'm sure they'll do it again.'

Two rounds left, Japanese and Brazilian GP.

B.A.R and Renault will have to aiming 2nd constructor which is an ambitious target to finish it. Renault won't give up, but B.A.R certainly keeps maintaining the spot. Watch the final of season.

Silly season isn't over yet. Jacques Villenueve will make debut return next season, he seems joining Sauber. DC is still uncertain.

Headlines; Silverstone might be out of calendar next year.

After Shanghai wowed the audiences it's a matter of can they get the old track up to the standards set by these new tracks. However, tracks like Monza have so much history that they can't get rid of them. SIlverstone just doesn't have the facilities but I don't think it should be taken off the calendar. The race is always exciting. This should be funded by the government to improve it

Also the Japanese qualy has been postponed because of a typhoon - sounds like a wet race

No track has more history than Silverstone! It was the home of the first ever Grand Prix, and is the only track to host a race every year in F1's 50 year history. Need I say more, Mr. Greed?

I've found it from another source..and please read it.

"The reason for this exclusion is reported that track owners could not fulfill the monetary requirement that Bernie Ecclestone demanded from them. The track has also been in news for criticism over lack of upgrades to the circuit in the recent years. Another reason for this is the emergence of new tracks in the Asian countries, which seems to be more open to the ideas of Tobacco promotions that European tracks are discouraging due to government regulations. In this year alone, 2 new Asian tracks were added to the calendar, Bahrain and China. Incidentally, both were applauded for the facilities. With more new tracks like in Turkey coming up, the old tracks are finding it hard to please the F1 authorities."

But there are much progress here...

Mosley confident of solution for British GP
The race will probably happen next year...

Max Mosley, the president of Formula One's governing body the FIA, said Sunday that he is optimistic that the British Grand Prix will go ahead next year.

The race had been in doubt because Silverstone has yet to agree a deal with Formula One commercial supremo Bernie Ecclestone.

"I hope and think in the end a solution will be found and it will be on as usual," Mosley told BBC Sport.

Mosley said the race would probably be given a provisional slot when the calendar is published on October 13. "At the moment, as I understand it, there is still no contract between Bernie and the organisers," Mosley said. "So if Bernie puts it on the calendar he proposes to the FIA on Wednesday it will only be in some sort of provisional form."

Mosley said he thought the race would "probably" happen next year. A consortium called Brand Synergy, which includes former world champion Nigel Mansell, claims to have secured a seven-year deal with Ecclestone to promote the race, and that it will stay at Silverstone. But the owners of the Northamptonshire circuit, the British Racing Drivers' Club (BRDC), say they have not yet reached a deal with Brand Synergy.

Mosley said: "It's primarily a question of money, and if they (Brand Synergy) know where the money's coming from they can probably say fairly definitely if it is going to happen."

Suzuka was just fine. All-Schumacher wins 1-2 positions. Another displays of this brothers that I've wanted to see. Nice to see Ralf's revival after coming back from piteous tragedy at Indy which might ended up his career. Plus I pointed up that the impressive displays of B.A.R will make them easier to lock the ambitious of 2nd constructors..

Schumi extends 13th season wins..

Finally. Good for Button. B.A.R is too good to leave, at least it has labeled the most improved team of the year.

Pizzonia should've become first choice, I think. His impressive display definitely given him credit to fill in the seat. This young man's capability says it all.
