    I believe that the car that Pizzonia was driving was the same one that Webber ran over the Sydney Harbor bridge with. It's a FW26 (last years car) Looks alot like this years as Williams got rid of the "walrus tusk" front end about 2/3 of the way thru the season.

    I remember 12 years or go David Brabham did a demo of the Brabham F1 car that he was running at the time in Adelaide - They are really awesome up close!
    Murray : And there are flames coming from the back of Prost's car as he enters the swimming pool!
    James Hunt: Well that should put them out then!
