Ferrari drivers curious about Bahrain  
 
Schumacher: "I am very curious. It is a new race on a new track and in a different climate. I like visiting new places and coming into contact with new cultures, even if we are not always able to totally understand everything about them. In any case, travel is always something that enriches the soul."
Barrichello: "I have never been anywhere in this part of the world and in fact, I am going to spend a couple of days in Dubai before making the trip to Bahrain and I am very much looking forward to discovering another part of the world."

Testing continious at Fiorano  
 
Third and final day of testing this week for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro at the Mugello circuit. Michael Schumacher took to the track today, working on a programme testing tyres and new components for the F2004.

In the morning, Michael only did one installation lap as the track conditions did not suit the planned programme, while in the afternoon, the session went ahead without any problems. A total of 65 laps were completed (15 on the short version of the track,) the quickest being a1.20.106. Today Schumacher will start with testing at Fiorano.

Extreme Ferrari Art  
 
Take a close look at this!!
This is drawn by Carsten Christiansen an Automotive artist. He normaly draws Bugattis and this is the first time he draws a Ferrari. The beautiful Testarossa belongs to Wolfgang, well known at the FerrariChat :).

Carsten: "This drawing is made exclusively by hand and only from looking at photos of Wolfgang's car. My drawings are all made exclusively with a 0.1 mm ink drawingpen NOT PENCIL..... that's why I spend so many hours on a drawing, and because faults are not allowed, I will have to keep extremely concentrated during the work... Ink is not eraseable, and any fault would mean that I will have to start all over with a new drawing."

More information about this Testarossa drawing is here, and if you want more info about the artist: BugattiArt.com

Fire...again!  
 


At the FerrariChat I came to notice the fire at the Garage Vanderveken in Bruxelles, Belgium. This is terrible, because just some weeks ago I saw some beautiful pictures of all kind of special cars; and especially some nice Ferraris.
Ofcourse first we think of the people who work there and hope nobody is injured...second we hope that the damage isn't as huge as seems on these pictures!

Second pole of the year!  
 
Michael Schumacher did it again. He was too fast (1.33.074) for everybody else at the Malesian track. But sensational is the man on second place: the Australian Mark Webber in his Jaguar (his fastest qually every). Rubens Barrichello took third.
Both Renault drivers looked very promising at the first qually. Fernando Alonso and Jarno Trulli were the fastest two. But in the second stint both drivers didn't manage it. Trulli drove a bad lap and didn't came any further than eight and Alonso spon of the track. He will start as last.
Montoya took fourth place and was a little faster than the winner of last year Kimi Raikkonen. Sixt was Jenson Button and seventh Ralf Schumacher.

Practice 1 and 2  
 
The first practice at the GP of Maleisia was dominated by Schumacher. He was almost one second faster than the rest of the field. His time was 1.34.437. Rubens Barrichello took second time in 1.35.380. The heat was enourmous (36 dregrees Celcius) but the Bridgetone tyres did a great job.
The testdriver of BAR, Anthony Davidson, took the third time and proofs that the team still has a very fast car.
Williams and McLaren didn't found the right way yet. Ralf Schumacher came in fifth and Montoya eight. McLaren was even worse: Raikonnen was sixth and Coulthard eleventh.

At the second practice the McLarens did a better job. Kimi Raikkonen set the fastest time (1.34.395) and Ralf Schumacher was close behind him as second (1.34.693). Michael Schumacher took fourth time (1.35.094) and Rubens came in as tenth (1.35.373). But ofcourse nothing is sure yet. We will see tomorrow what the teams were aiming at today!

Testing in Valencia; day 1  
 
McLaren had a happy first testday at Valencia. They were the fastest and beat Ferrari. BUT...it was very very close, and Ferrari driver Badoer drove only the 'old' F2003GA. Today Barrichello will drive the F2004.
Badoer and McLaren driver De LaRosa drove both 88 laps. De LaRosa was a little faster with 1.10.124 against Badoer 1.10.151. Yesterday only Anthony Davidson was also on the track with his BAR005. He drove almost a complete race distance (127 laps).
Today are, next to Barrichello, also Gene (Williams), Montagny (Renault), Zonta and Briscoe (both Toyota) on the track in Valencia.

Barron Connor Racing completes drivers line up  
 
Deletraz, Hezemans and Barde join Bosch, Sullivan and Biagi.

The Barron Connor Racing team has signed former Le Mans class winner
Jean-Denis Deletraz, GT star Mike Hezemans and the reigning European Ferrari 360 Champion Ange Barde to drive one of the two Ferrari 575 GTC cars that the team has entered for this year's Sebring 12 Hours, the Le Mans 24 Hours and all the Le Mans Endurance Series races.

Barron Connor co-founder and driver John Bosch said: "After signing Thomas
(Biagi) to join me and Danny (Sullivan), we spoke to over 30 drivers, so making a decision took time. We are happy with the result, for both cars now have a strong driver line up, with a good mix of experience and success. Jean-Denis brings a lot of endurance racing success with him, including wins with the Ferrari 550, while Mike is arguably one of the best GT drivers around. I also know how good Ange is, having raced against him in the Ferrari championship. He won that title in 2001 and last year, while I won it in 2002. I think it is also great for Ferrari to have its 360 champions move up like this. In addition, Jean-Denis, Mike and Ange have all raced in the Le Mans 24 Hours, which is very important."

Double victory  
 
YES!!! Isn't this the very best result Ferrari could wish? After 1 hour and 24 minutes Michael Schumacher came as first over the Melbourne finish! And...he was soon followed by his teammate Rubens Barrichello! So a double victory.
Third came Alonso in his Renault. Raikonnen didn't finish, he fell out the race with gearbox problems.

First Race, First Pole!  
 
This is the best start that Ferrari could wish for. The first row is in their hands. Michael Schumacher starts from pole position
and Rubens Barrichello is second. Third time was for Montoya in his Williams. And friend and enemy were suprised to see Jenson Button on the fourth place.
McLaren wasn't so lucky, tenth and twelfth is all they could manage.
Ross Brawn: " I' m very happy with this result, but we must not forget that all the points will be earned on sunday...not today!"

Ferrari fastest on friday  
 
A full second faster then anybody else...that was the difference on the first day in Melbourne. Schumacher and Barrichello were fastest in the first training and did the same thing in the second session. The gap was a little less than the 1.7 seconds in the first training, but 1 second is also very very much. The third time of the day was for Trulli in the Renault. Then came Button in the BAR. Fifth was again a Renault; Alonso. Williams and McLaren were dissapointed. Ralf Schumacher didn't came further then sixth time and Montoya came behind him, but was more than 1.5 second slower than the Ferrari of Schumacher! Coulthard came eight and ninth was Webber in the Jaguar R5. Raikkonen was even tenth...and that's not the best position for an attack at the champion! We will see what happens yesterday and if the Ferraris are as fast as today!

A new competition!  
 
The Grand Prix Drivers' Association has announced the launch of a new competition aimed at Formula One racing fans.

At this weekend's Australian Grand Prix, six lucky fans will win a money-can't-buy guided tour of the F1 paddock on raceday, during which they will have photo opportunities with several Formula One drivers, including the four Grand Prix Drivers' Association directors: six-time world champion Michael Schumacher, local hero Mark Webber, McLaren's David Coulthard and Renault's Jarno Trulli.
To enter the competition, fans will each have to buy a small pin featuring Mark Webber's helmet - the proceeds of which will go to Brainwave Australia, which assists young people with cancer and is the official charity of the Australian Grand Prix. The pins will be on sale at various points around the Albert Park track, as well as in Federation Square in the centre of Melbourne.
