Open Wheel Wednesday

I haven’t had the opportunity to see if there was any fender-less cars racing up until this point, but there is a big one this weekend.

The Formula 1 series kicks off its 2008 campaign from Melbourne, Australia on Saturday night, 11:00pm CST. It’s time to see if Lewis Hamilton is the real deal; he is a fabulous racer and now we’ll see if he can follow through with his #1 status at McLaren. Or will Kimi Raikkonen make it back to back championships at Ferrari. My big deal is to see if Renault has got what it takes to put Fernando Alonso back in the winners circle. He hasn’t been at the top of the chart in pre-season testing, so is the car off or are they sandbagging? It remains to be seen.

Regardless of what you think of F1, whether it is that they are all prima donna ride buyers, or there is too much whine with their cheese, this is high tech on the edge and I can’t wait to watch.
