    Sounds as good as the rest, Bash! Ralf Schumacher is a safe bet, Fisichella might be a weak link..the Benetton isn't looking too great at the moment. Bernoldi has been relatively impressive in testing for Arrows.
    Bridgestone is pretty much the only tyre of choice really...the majority of teams on the grid are using Bridgestone rubber and Jordan should be a decent team this year again...third or fourth in the constructors this year, I think!

    I used to go to Silverstone regularly, but I can't afford to go abroad...Hungary is about the cheapest one to go to and I can't afford that one either...be a crap race to watch anyway...

    I watch every race live, or I used to...gonna have to be sneaky this Sunday for the Aussie GP though ;)
    I've met Coulthard and grabbed his autograph...my mate James has met a load...including my all-time fave and idol Damon Hill...I got James to get Damon to sign my Damon Hill Championship Year book! Way cool autograph!! Got it scanned somewhere...
    James has also met a few others and my sister met Jackie Stewart when working in Blenheim Palace! Got his autograph on a Blenheim menu card for me!

    Yeah ive met,
    Mika Salo Pedro Diniz 1998
    Did cartoons of them both and got them to sigh, very impressed

    Damon Hill, Sighned his book( the one with the eyes on the front), Pedro Diniz 1997

    Martin Brundle, Rubens Baricello, Damon Hill, Micheal Schmacher(on passing) 1996

    The only reason i meet them is caus my dad gets tickets to watch the British GP and we get corprate tickets to see them, so the drivers come and visit us when its lunch and they join us for lunch etc. In 1996 Jordan had the only hospitality suit at the circuit so all the other drivers came into the tent and sat down and had lunch with us. We could see MS caus he was swamped with people but I bumped into him!

    Rightee...latest spreadsheet is online..

    http://uk.geocities.com/poodusplace/FF12001.xls

    See what competition you are up against and when the race is over, see how your team is faring...

    If you don't have Excel, please let me know and I'll create a PDF alongside it...

    Rightee...I'll make a PDF of the scoresheets when they're done after each race...assuming I can find all your teams anyway!

    I'll make a PDF of the team entry in a tick too...

    Okay wormie, spoilsport...if it was a hassle I could have done a team for you and you could have played by proxy!

    Poods!

    After having a quick scan of the lap times I have adjusted my team.

    Wofies Wippets!

    R Shumacher
    J Villeneuve
    J Verstappen

    Car: Jordan.

    Tyres: Michelin.

    Let me know when you see this cos I want my new team up and running for sunday! :)

    oh, by the way, How does the points system work with this thing. Does it just go with the World Championship points structure?

    You'll have to read the rules, Alpha...I don't know how they work it this year...

    Okay, I'll let you get away with changing your team this time, however, if anyone else wants to quickly change, they'd better do so now...remember though, that the season goes on for 17 races and you shouldn't jump at the results of a Friday Free Practice...

    Also, I ask that if you want to change your teams throughout the year, just create a new one please? Last year I had a nightmare of a job with people changing their drivers and cars throughout the year (yes, i'm to blame for that too), but I would like all teams to remain the same from Race 1 to Race 17...this is fair and much easier for me!! I've got 16 teams to keep track of and I'd rather not have to alter teams throughout the year...

    Cheers

    oh bloody nora! Now you have me doubting again.

    I decided not to gamble on Montoya and Button. I now get the feeling that they are gonna have a nightmare this year.

    Shumacher and Villeneuve always seem to be there and there abouts in the points and if they aint I got my Jordan car to fall back on. Verstappen sneaks in there somtimes to.

    I'm a bit concerned about the Michelin tyres but I couldn't afford the bridgestone's.

    um, yeah, ok. I'll stick with that.

    Final answer?

    confident?

    yep, definately stick with that.

    Sent you a mail too, but make sure you change your team on the ff1.beeb.com website as well as on my spreadsheet...the scores for our league will come from that website..so the scores attributed to Wolfies Wippets will be from whatever team you have registered there...

    I wouldn't know what to change it to and how the new team is better than the old one. I'll stick to what I have.
