In the F1 blogs this week plenty of reaction to the Ferrari and McLaren launches.

Meanwhile the row over traction control goes on. Will it make the racing better? Will it make F1 more dangerous? Everyone is having their say.

  1. I think you’re being very generous when you call my post on Raikkonen a biography. It’s more a mish-mash of other people’s posts, with a bit of opinion of my own (read overpraise) interspersed.
