F1 on SPEED!

The vacation is over for the teams, and the racing is back on!  This weekend is the Grand Prix of Spain, and SPEED will be there for us... thankfully!  Unfortunately, there's no replays of ANY sort for this race, so either you tape it or you wake up early.  Your choice.

Friday, April 25th brings us LIVE coverage of the 2nd Practice from 7a to 830a.  The biggest question on the lips of the F1 Circus is "will SuperAguri participate?"  They've been having financial problems all season, and Honda is refusing to sink any more cash into the team (pure spite, I tell ya!).  At one time, a buyer for the team had been found, but for reasons unknown at this time, the sale fell through.  While reports are saying that the team is in Catalunya, there's still some question as to whether they'll make it onto the track.  Cross your fingers, Pond readers!

Saturday, April 26th, from ; font-weight: bold;">7a to 830a, brings us the Quals session, plausibly LIVE.  Ferrari and McLaren are looking to teach those upstarts from BMW-Sauber that they ain't part of the big boys yet.  BMW wants to solidify their toehold, and Renault and Williams are just dreaming of the front row.  Will SuperAguri make the grid?  Will a RedBull car fall apart when someone leans on them?  Whither Canada? 

Then, finally, Sunday, April 27th brings us the Grand Prix of Spain LIVE from ; font-weight: bold;">630a to 9a.  Will the abrasive asphalt of the Circuit de Catalunya help the grip while burning the tires off the rims?  Or will we have cars slipping and sliding again due to the lack of traction control?  Either way, the tires are going to be screaming... I wonder if there'll be any frontrunners on a three-stop strategy?  My guess is no, but I've been (very) wrong before.

All times, of course, are Pond Central.  Add one for the east coast, subtract two for the Pacific (though they've got a different schedule anyway), and subtract seven hours (and add a day) for Wake Island...
