DC - The Mosely/Cosworth engine you refer to reminds me of a conversation with Johnson and andrew on the mythical Mosely motorcar. In that vein, I have a few comments and questions on this powerplant.

Will the engine be named the Mosworth, Worthsely, or my favorite the Cosmo which has a sexy, aloof, feminine ring to it. Will the Cosmo have erratic power characteristics? Can it survive severe punishment? Can it be run dry or will it require wet lubrication? Does it use a piston ring? Can it run at full power for extended periods or does it peter out after a short time? Do the matierials characteristics have long-term temporary insult memory? Enlightenment would be appreciated. :D

No topic for this but I putting it up anyway. Just when you thought qualifying was going to be wide open the teams throw a wrench in the mix. Formula 1 teams have agreed to introduce an extra strategic element to races this season by forcing leading drivers to start races on the same tyres that they qualified on, AUTOSPORT can reveal.

With the ban on refuelling for 2010 already forcing a big change in tactics compared to how grands prix have run in recent years, the new rule looks set to have an impact on how teams approach qualifying as well.

So - are we all going to bet on which team gets the "Order of the Brown Helmet"!! 1st - Campos are looking good for this outstanding award but like most things in F1 you can never be sure - maybe one of the more established teams will manage it. To qualify, they have to turn up at the 1st event and (a)get a court order to prevent them from running or (b) not complete a lap or even (c) employ the wrong Schumacher due to an oversight in the paperwork, - anyone up for a bet? :)

As much as Jose Maria Lopez is a talented young driver, I really dont think it will help usf1 much in the coming season, as I only forsee then as tailenders. Much of there problem will come from the development of there car and the little time that they have had.
