    Me too. '88 was the first season I started to watch. The early 90's cars were stunning, just look at these:

    I agree, the mid 80s-early 90s were the best looking f1 cars. followed by the 60s.

    Trulli won't be missed. Really annoyed me that he kept complaining about the Caterham power steering issues - even missed a race. Always liked Petrov.

    How much do you think Petrov will bring in with new sponsorship? Enough to get Caterham out of last place?

    Probably significant. Apparently Barichello had sponsorship money. I would be shocked if he didnt try and get the drive.

    Enough to move the needle? Probably not. It generally costs 10m to move a .1 seconds. I cant imagine they got more than 25 million, if that.

    Speaking of Barrichello, I briefly met him at the IndyCar test at Sears Point today. Almost everyone there was waiting outside the KV Racing trailer to see him.

    Pretty cool. I hear he's tiny.

    There was an episode of Megafactories featuring Williams F1 recently, anyone see it?

    No, but I did take a tour of the Williams factory in '97! Very cool. Here's a picture from yesterday:
