META4 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
seems like the test car will be running at Silverstone next week

I think it is already to late for Ferrari to cancel the project, they can hardly go backward now... even if everything is possible

but i think everybody is aware that running an F1 car with 15 peoples around it , and the car rebuild completly after each race is not the same than running an A1GP car that will have to run most of the season with low maintenance

reason of cancellation is not enough cars ready to be tested.. only about 10 or so will be done by then.

That would be a serious disadvantage to the teams not able to pick theirs up.

I read something yesterday about a Team Malaysia mechanic travelling to the UK to start building their car next week, and joining training that they will receive from Ferrari on running the cars.

correct, it's on team Malaysia's site too btw..

And.. Carlo van Dam, currently leading the standings in the Japanese F3, will be piloting the Dutch car at the Bavaria City Race here in Rotterdam.

RichardRenes, who do you see as serious contenders for the Dutch drive? Is Bleekemolen still in there or do van Dam and van der Zande have good chances as well?

from what I gather, Jan Lammers has been talking to:

Jeroen Bleekemolen (Porsche Supercup, Le Mans Series LMP2)
Renger van der Zande (F3 euroseries)
Yelmer Buurman (GP2 and Superleague Formula)
Carlo van Dam (Japanese F3)
Giedo van der Garde (World Series by Renault)
Junior Strous (Atlantics series)
Chris van der Drift (International Formula Master, also in line for Team NZL).

He may or may not have been talking to:
Robert Doornbos (who is positive, as there are only 2 clashes with Superleage Formula)
Jos Verstappen (yes, miracles do exist.. they are on speaking terms again)
and Christijan Albers (DTM now)

I don't think Giedo will be content playing second fiddle... With Jos driving, you'd need someone without a big ego to support him.. someone like, say, Junior Strous or Carlo van Dam.

Giedo, Yelmer, Renger (and Jeroen now too ), will claim the seat as a racer too...

Yes, such a wealth of good drivers to choose from. What a headache for Jan One that a lot of teams would relish

Carlo won't come in if he doesn't have the race drive. From what I heard it would be either a team made up by Van der Zande/Van der Garde or Van der Zande/Buurman.

Van der Zande is bringing some money Lammers would desperatley needs...

Some photos of the new car, looking good the with the revised engine cover, in action at Silverstone. It's going around 2sec per lap quicker round the International circuit than the old machine so far.

Good call on delaying Mugello, I said it to one of my friends. If I were A1GP, I'd rather delay than not have Ferraris on track.

I am not sure about that tailfin, but the Ferrari heritage makes up for it

1.26 on Zandvoort ? Cool!

the old car allready was capable of 1:26 in qualification, so 1:26 in racepace is definately possible.. perhaps even faster towards 1:24 or 1:23.

By comparison: DTM cars do about 1:34 and F3 does 1:30.
