This will be a good year for British drivers imho:

With Schumi gone and Alonso and Raikkonen having to get used to new teams, Button could be a surprise title challenger this season.

Coulthard will be as steady as ever in his Red Bull and I'm sure he'll pick up a few points this season.

Antony Davidson returns to F1 in a Super Aguri and he may pick up a point or two.

Lewis Hamilton is the one to really look out for at McLaren. I hope he really pushes Alonso and the team let the two race each other. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this guy performs.

McLaren have a lot of work to do to be realistic title challengers based on last year. I agree about Button, though. I reckon he and Honda could well be in contention.

It has been reported that Fernando Alonso is confident that he will three-peat as F1 world champion for the 2007 racing season:

It was like a joke, he wasn't tipping himself to win the title seriously but, obviously, he is a candidate to win the title.

A candidate, certainly. I have a feeling this year's championship could be very wide open.

Until we know how the cars perform we can't say that though. I don't think anyone was expecting McLaren's dominance in the late 90's, when in the first race of the season Coulthard and Hakinnen lapped everyone else on the circuit. There may be one car which is much, much better than the rest; we'll have to wait and see.

There may be, but it could just as easily be a very open and competitive series, particularly with the switch to the sole tyre company.

Bahrain will be guaranteed to host a F1 race annually until 2013.

However, can explain to me where Abu Dhabi fits in here? Has it ever hosted a F1 race before?

They haven't and I wasn't aware they were likely to any time soon.

Arwebb, Abu Dhabi will gets its chance to host a F1 race, starting in the 2009 racing calendar.

Three more weeks to go. This is rather strange that the San Marino Grand Prix is still not confirmed for this season. Any word about it yet?

With less than a week, before this year's F1 season starts again at Melbourne, it looks like Aston Martin is not going to have vehicles race in this international circuit for a while.
