  1. F1 To South Africa

    Cape Town's F1 bid delayed 08/04/2008 14:55 The proposed bid to host an F1 Grand Prix in Cape Town has received another setback, with Western Cape Premier Ebrahim Rasool said to be "too busy to meet with investors". An intergovernmental task team was established more than a year ago to explore the feasibility of hosting a Formula One race in Cape Town after an international consortium had offered to invest R4 billion in the venture. However, it is now being reported that Western Cape Premier Ebrahim Rasool is too busy to meet with the consortium. He has reportedly also failed to release the task teams's feasibility study findings. The consortium also claims that Rasool pledged his support for the project in January 2007, although these investors have not received any further communication from the Premier's office. It is now concerned about the "evident opposition" to the project from the Western Cape Province. In its bid, the SA Grand Prix Corporation said it did not require government funds to host the race in Cape Town. It proposed acquiring land close to the Cape Town International Airport and while some of the land earmarked belongs to the provincial government, the consortium claims this was promised to it by the City. Simon Grindrod, Cape Town's mayoral committee head for economic, social development and tourism in his statement to the press noted that Cape Town and the Western Cape were "on the brink of losing the project as frustrated investors consider taking their money and jobs elsewhere". According to Grindrod, similar international events demonstrate how a city - and country - benefits from the economic spin-offs following the hosting of a world-class sporting event such as an F1 race. "A simple yes or no from the (Western Cape) Province would suffice," Grindrod continued. "The investors can then make alternative plans. Such delays in decision-making are very bad for investor confidence in the Western Cape." http://www.wheels24.co.za/Wheels24/NewsPic...2302097,00.html

    Yes all this Lewus fans it is a Ferrari and they got Ferrari's race strategy for the first half of the year.
  7. Hamilton Wake Up

    Lewus Hamilton said "I have already forgotten about what happened in Shanghai. I have been in this sort of situation before and I know I can take the pressure. They call Kimi 'the Iceman' and I believe that I have similar characteristics. Kimi and Fernando might have more experience, but I know myself." Hamilton also confirmed that he had confidence in the Mclaren team providing him with the equipment to complete his championship quest at Interlagos. "I have wanted to be in Formula Onefor 15 years, and now I can see with my own eyes why McLaren has been successful for all these years," he said, "There is no reason why this team has to resort to dirty tricks. I'm leading the world championship because we have a better car than Ferrari and because the team has done a better job at being reliable." Lewus you are driving a Ferrari dont you know that ?
  8. Espionage Is A 2 Way Street. Possibly.

    The hard truth is that when the lights go out before the start of Sunday's Chinese Grand Prix, Hamilton should not be in with a glimmer of a chance of clinching the world drivers' title. I know it would spoil an awfully good story, the best British sports story of the year, a story we all want to sign up to. But the fact is Hamilton should be starting the race in Shanghai precisely 90 points behind Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen. He shouldn't be driving for points at all, let alone the title. He shouldn't be driving for anything other than the chance to try to restore a little of McLaren's shattered reputation. The decision to strip his team of all its points but leave those gained by Hamilton and Alonso intact defied logic when it was made last month and it defies logic now. Hamilton won the Japanese Grand Prix on Sunday but the constructors' table still shows McLaren with a big fat zero next to its name. I'm sorry but Hamilton should have one next to his, too. Most people in the sport recognise this. Certainly those who are brave enough to speak out. Max Mosley, the FIA president, accepted the sport's decision was indefensible and distanced himself from it. His excuse was Alonso and Hamilton had been promised immunity in return for cooperating with the inquiry into the theft of Ferrari's information. But his heart wasn't really in it. He'd still wanted them stripped of their points. It's not the first time Formula One has surrendered to the demands of commercialism and it won't be the last. And you can be sure that this weekend in Shanghai, everybody will be doing their level best to forget that Ferrarigate ever happened. If I was there, I'd be doing it, too. But it did happen. Sensitive and crucial information from Ferrari did find its way into the hands of McLaren. No one's even bothering to deny that any more. And just because Hamilton didn't know he had an unfair advantage, that doesn't mean it wasn't there. His team was cheating and - there is no way round this - he is part of that team. There is a possibility Hamilton and Alonso finished higher in races this season than they would have done without the input from the information gleaned from Ferrari. Hamilton may have profited from that information unwittingly but there's a likelihood he profited from it nevertheless. There's a likelihood he won points he might not otherwise have won. There's a possibility he won races he might not otherwise have won. Perhaps it seems otherwise, but I have little appetite for criticising Hamilton. I've met him, albeit fleetingly. I liked him and admired him. It's hard not to. But just as it was impossible to pretend Christine Ohuruogu's world championship gold was not tainted in some way by her three missed drugs tests, so it is impossible to ignore the stain that marks Hamilton's achievement.
