Our build up to the 2008 season continues - we've looked at the drivers and the teams, now it's time to look at the regulation changes for this year.

Intro

Taking advice from the comments of this post, I'm tempted to withhold his show notes.

Good week / Bad week

Williams get a much needed cash boost and Super Aguri say they'll be there, whilst Ron Dennis and Silverstone both get some bad press.

News and views

McLaren have some unwelcome visitors to their factory and the resulting fall out just drags the espionage affair ever onward. We catch up with testing news, Vettel in a Red Bull, electronic flags and all the talk about Hamilton. Team Williams have two interesting tidbits about their drivers past, present and future.

Regulations

Taking a closer look at the technical and sporting regulation changes for 2008, including the engine freeze, four-race gearbox and qualifying tweaks.

Feedback

We asked for your Australia predictions and we certainly got them. There's still room to send more in though, so check here for more information. Some excellent emails from Joel (meeting lots of drivers), Shashank (about the 2010 India GP), Andrew (F1 Merchandise in Tesco?) and Rhodders (Jackie Stewart interview).
