Default JV is back for 2005!!!

Its official JV will be back for the 2005 season in the #1 seat at Sauber, and is expected to replace Truli @ Renault for the final 3 races of this season.

I know, i think it's good news. We'll get to see Fernando put Villeneuve in his place!!

But yeh, i don't really like Villeneuve but anything is better then Trulli at the moment. I am kinda disappointed that Luizzi isn't gonna get a race seat at Sauber though.

Hmmmm, we shall see. I think that Villeneuve was complimented heavily by the quality of the Williams-Renault. But..... we will see. I think you'll be displeasantly surprised!!

I hope this doesn't mean that Eddie Irvine is coming back too.

You can still control it, but you will have to change the setup and driving style.

Yeh, it would certainly be different to drive of course. It would be more temperamental like the F103. I would love to get one of those just to hone my driving skills further. Have you tried an F103 Neil???

I haven't had the pleasure to drive one. In fact, people opted out of that car since the F201. I have seen one 103 at the Tamiya track all my times there.

the F103 will certainly make a driver out of anyone! they are wicked fast, and a blast to drive.... IF (keyword!) set up properly.

i have ran a hopped up F103RS some, has the arm-type frontend, etc... shoulda bought one of those GT-One's at the TCS race... dirt cheap!

Not in the least. I bought it the year tamiya dropped it from TCS. I was all ready to run two classes that year then the schedule comes out and there was no F1/GTP Never raced it, only ran it once or twice in the parking lot.

Try selling it in the for sale forum, or on ebay.

I keep going back and forth on it 'cause if I sell it, I know I'm not going to get much for it, plus I may regret it someday. Ah well whatever... It's not like it takes up a lot of space, enough about that.
On a different note, does any company make foams for the F201?
I want to race indoors, and I'll use sedan foams if I have to, but I like to keep the scale realism if I can.
