First round and we have had an a priori surprising podium. Where are the ferraris? Who saw Ron Dennis' silver things? The new "regulations" makes possible negative scores, and this time we have had a lot! (In fact I think I'm happy of not putting a guess! )

Nobody got maximum points, 4 points, or even 3 points, but three players got a first lead in the game with 2 points:

**Jack Rabbit**(fisi/alon/msch) (new in the house, I think ),

**maxie**(fisi/alon/mont) and

**fisichella_2001**(fisi/raik/barr) (of course!) . Congratulations for all of them. The first two profited by faith in Renault and the last of them is always loyal to Giancarlo and now it is starting to pay off!

A lot of people are well placed with 1 point. Many people has got a bland 0 ;) (including the two fierce bots, MAX and BERNIE).

And a fair load of people has got -1 point (including panzani ;) ), what is a back step with respect to "starting square"

Finally, eight players sunk to -2 points, meaning they didn't fit any of the drivers in the podium (I confess, this was probably my case if I had put a guess). I suppose next GPs will be a bit less wild, at least in qualifying sessions!

I hope all of us with zeroes or neagtive scores can do something positive there. Seeing how rapid is the new Renault I wonder if this is the year to fisichella_2001 winning this game!

Lots of thanks to everyone and see you here very soon!
