    Until atleast 2008 :( or unless the teams unanimously agree to a move to a sole supplier. (like that will happen) :rolleyes:

    They've also stated that the technical rules will remain the same until the end of the 2007 season, although I assume this won't affect the introduction of the V8 from next season.

    Now... the conspiracy theorist in me thinks it's more than a little odd that for the last few seasons of Ferrari domination, we've seen nothing but rule changes, but as soon as Ferrari become less/uncompetitive, it's announced that the rules will remain stable for 3 seasons! :eek:

    Hmmmmmmm... :p

    Oh well, I'm sure there are some Bridgestone/Michelin reps pulling as many strings as they can to prevent this from happening anyway...

    What really scares me is, will there be F1 as we know it after the Concorde runs out?

    i really haven't been that into F1 since the great days of Senna, Mansell, Prost, Piquet et al


    going to try and watch all the races this season though, don't really have a favourite to cheer on though, which takes the excitement out even more i think. good to see schumey in need of points though, could be some classic driving on the way!

    same here, but i actually like the hours, 'cause at least i'm at home with time to watch (esp. the late night ones).

    as far as conspiracies, just give it a few races, and when schumi is back on top they'll change the rules again.

    back OT, i think it's a mistake not to move to a single tire (for costs and competittion reasons)
