Yes the 2 series are of a similar standard but I would compare the top 5 drivers in A1 GP more with the top 5 in the WSR rather than GP2. You mention Parente is often "there or thereabouts" in GP2 this year. Personally I dont agree with that, yes he is joint 5th in the championship at the moment but he isnt anywhere near Pantano, Senna or Grosjean in terms of pace, or Di Grassi most of the time for that matter.

Drivers like Carroll have had their chances in GP2 and for whatever reason have failed to hit the top, yes Carroll has won a couple of races but he hasnt ever been in the same League as rookies Hamilton, Premat, Pantano or Piquet. As for Duval, has he really done enough to justify a place in GP2? Sure he did ok in Nippon but he didnt exactly shine in the F3 euroseries. IMO of course.

Any idea if the all Orange one was a matter of not having the proper Netherlands livery applied yet or if they are returning to the seasons 1 & 2 all orange livery?

http://www.italiaracing.net/notizia.asp?id=20153&cat=14 Oh dearie me...

"Patrick Friesacher who last week suffered a testing accident in the new A1 Grand Prix car powered by Ferrari. The incident, which is under investigation by the open-wheel series, left the Austrian with a significant back injury and has put him out of action for an indeterminate amount of time."

A1GP conveniently covered that up, didn't they?

I wonder... was it a failure or driver error? The way they say they are investigating it makes it sound like a failure - not good.

from good sources, I'd say chances are 75% we're going back to a season 1/ 2 livery.

which means all they'd have to do is apply the sponsor's decals

regardless of failure or driver error...... if patrick got injured seriously, this is big news....is the car as good as the old one when it comes to safety ??..

the serious accident i can recall with the old car was Hayanari Shimoda in australia, where the car got split in to two...and he got away with a minor concussion !

I think its a shame, that we dont have a Team Denmark in A1GP. There are so many talented drivers, and I know that Team Essex Invest looked into it. But the economy looked a bit dizy.

A shame with Patrick, but these things happen. And its quite normal to have these offs in testing. Better in testing than in racing. Best of luck Patrick

Italiaracing is reporting that following the latest test cancellations there are rumours suggesting the season can start with the old car...

starting the season with the old cars , would not be really a good news if they have to start racing with the brand new car in "overseas" races like Jakarta or Sepang, would make the work of the teams more difficult i guess

Anyone know the reasons behind the test cancellations? It seemed they had racked up a lot of miles...something to do with the accident (whatever that was)? Hard to imagine Ferrari being willing to accept the damage that would be done to their reputation if the season had to start with the old cars.
