    ....And new to this race - a Video Preview of the race. :D

    Click the map below for the video - yup - it's another map - shows some different information though.

    It's an 11.5mb WMV file - not great but certainly watchable.

    Here, that's quite funky. Better than my knocked up in 10 mins GE flyover :)

    Am I right in thinking there was less testing at Barcelona over the winter than usual? Resurfacing or something springs to mind. That could throw a spanner in the works if it's changed the characteristics of the track.

    Ferrari may also be at a disadvantage as they're rarely seen testing at Barcelona so we'll see what happens.

    Ugh... barcelona.. cant remember the last time i saw some overtaking on that track. I just pray we dont see it won in the pits again, or it's going to be a very dull season :(

    I can't excactly remember last years race but it wouldn't surprise me if it was and will be a dull race again.

    I agree I think as soon as they have a control tire and make them race on the track and not win in the pits the better.

    Not sure what the real solution is but a standard tire would help for sure, although some races have been good this year.

    Ban refuelling but continue to allow tyre changes albeit with a limited number of pit crew - I'm talking 4-6 including jack men.

    Firstly it removes all the problems which have plagued these Intertechnique fuel rigs (which the FIA deny happen.)

    Secondly it takes you back to the late 80s style of racing when there were basically 3 ways of running the race.

    1) The Senna style - hell for leather for the first third of the race to build a lead then pit and pace the second set to the end.

    2) The Prost style - pace the first set for 60% of the race, change to new tyres and charge after Senna.

    3) The de Cesaris style - try and make one set last the entire race, making everyone wonder how a Leyton House is leading until Prost and Senna (only!) charge past with 2 laps to go.

    At present everyone knows when the pitstops will be as they are determined by fuel load so it's possible to predict where any car will be at any one time. If you remove the predictability of pitstops by limiting them to tyres only then you remove the ability to pre-plan "overtaking" maneouvers. You also end up with cars with varying levels of tyre grip in the last third of the race, at the moment the final stint of a GP is basically between identically fuelled and tyred cars.
