2007 Formula One season season summary
 

 
   
 
Kimi Räikkönen, the 2007 World Drivers' Champion.
Lewis Hamilton, runner-up with 109 points. Hamilton recorded nine consecutive podium finishes in his debut season, more than any other rookie in Formula One history.
Fernando Alonso, the defending double world champion, also recorded 109 points. But was placed 3rd through count-back.

The 2007 Formula One season was the 58th FIA Formula One World Championship season. It began on 18 March and ended on 21 October after seventeen Grands Prix. The Drivers' Championship was won by Ferrari driver Kimi Räikkönen by one point at the final race of the season, making Räikkönen the third Finnish driver to take the title. An appeal by McLaren regarding the legality of some cars in the final race could have altered the championship standings,[1] but on 16 November, the appeal was reportedly rejected by the International Court of Appeal, confirming the championship results.[2] Räikkönen entered the final race in third position in the drivers' standings, but emerged as champion after the chequered flag, a feat that had been accomplished only by Giuseppe Farina in 1950.

A major talking point of the season had been an espionage controversy involving Ferrari and McLaren, which led to McLaren being excluded from the World Constructors' Championship. As a result, Ferrari clinched the championship at the Belgian Grand Prix.

The 2007 season was significant in that it heralded the end of the existing Concorde Agreement between the existing Formula One constructors and Bernie Ecclestone. In particular, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Honda (collectively the Grand Prix Manufacturers' Association) had a number of outstanding disagreements with the FIA and Ecclestone on financial and technical grounds. They had threatened to boycott Formula One from the 2008 season onwards and instead stage their own rival series, before signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) at the 2006 Spanish Grand Prix.[3]

The 2007 Australian Grand Prix was the first time since the 1986 Spanish Grand Prix that there was a Formula One field without a Cosworth engine.

This was the last season for all the race cars to use traction control since 2001.

Honda F1 ran with an "Earth livery" on their RA107 car, the first time since 1968, when sponsorship in the sport became widespread,[4] that a team ran sponsor-free for an entire season.

Pre-season testing

Pre-season testing began in November 2006 at the Circuit de Catalunya, with ten of the eleven teams participating in the test sessions. The most notable absentees were Fernando Alonso and Kimi Räikkönen, who were still under contract at Renault and McLaren respectively. Jenson Button was also absent as he had suffered a hairline fracture on his ribs after a go-karting accident in preparations for the November tests. Lewis Hamilton made his first appearance in a McLaren since being confirmed as Alonso's team-mate for 2007.

Felipe Massa topped the times on the first two days of testing. Massa's testing partner, Luca Badoer, took the fastest time on the third day, although interest was on the fact that double World Champion Mika Häkkinen joined Hamilton and de la Rosa at McLaren for a one off test, although the Finnish driver was over three seconds slower then Badoer's time, completing 79 laps of the Spanish circuit. He hopes to be of continued benefit to McLaren over the coming winter.

The other big story of 2007 is the return to a single tyre formula (Bridgestone). It is possible that this accounts for some of the reason why Ferrari led the most recent test, although it has been claimed by Bridgestone that the 2007 tyre is of a completely new build, thus minimising any real benefit for the 2006 Bridgestone teams (Ferrari, Toyota, Williams, Midland/Spyker and Super Aguri).

Toyota was the only team out for the fourth day of testing at Barcelona, as the Japanese works team chose to miss the first day of testing. Both Ralf Schumacher and Jarno Trulli's fastest laps were quicker than Massa and Badoer's times during the previous three sessions. Testing resumed on December 6 at Jerez, with the majority of teams attending the session. Both Ferraris of Massa and Badoer were first and second fastest, with McLaren's Lewis Hamilton making up the top three in third. Hamilton improved on his position the following day by taking the fastest time, a second faster than Renault's Giancarlo Fisichella.

Japanese works teams Honda and Toyota topped the times for the next two days of testing: Honda's Rubens Barrichello and Toyota's Franck Montagny were fastest, although Toyota had the Jerez track to themselves when Montagny took the fastest time. Heikki Kovalainen and Pedro de la Rosa took the fastest times on the fourth and fifth day of testing at Jerez. Also of note, on the last day of testing Fernando Alonso made his McLaren testing debut after an agreement with manager Flavio Briatore. This did not call for an end to his agreement (which ended on the 31st of December).

  • On 29 August 2006, The FIA published a provisional calendar for the 2007 Formula One season. The San Marino and European Grands Prix were excluded, although the European round would later make a comeback (see below).[13] The final calendar (above), which confirmed that the San Marino Grand Prix would not return, was released on October 18, 2006.[14]
  • For the first time in nearly half a century, there was not a German Grand Prix in 2007 after the 2 Grands Prix previously held in Germany begin to alternate between Hockenheim and Nürburgring. Hockenheim controls the descriptor "German Grand Prix" and an agreement could not be reached between the two circuits for the naming rights. The Nürburgring event therefore retained its usual Grand Prix of Europe title.[15]
  • It had been suggested that the Italian Grand Prix might do the same, swapping between Monza and Imola, but this now appears to have been rejected with the possibility that Imola could again host the San Marino Grand Prix in 2008.[citation needed]
  • After twenty years, the Japanese Grand Prix will move from the Honda-owned Suzuka Circuit to Toyota's rebuilt Fuji Speedway, a circuit that F1 has not raced at since 1977.
  • For the first time since 1975, all races are held in different countries (only one race for any one nation).

Changes

Rule changes

  • Although the FIA had planned to introduce a regulation single tyre manufacturer from 2008, there will be a sole supplier (Bridgestone) from 2007 to 2010, since Bridgestone's only rival, Michelin, ended their participation in Formula One after the 2006 season.
  • Tyres are supplied in accordance with the revised Sporting Regulations, which provide for a total of 14 sets of dry weather tyres per driver over the race weekend: four sets for Friday only, and 10 for the rest of the weekend.
Top: harder tyre (officially named the 'prime' tyre).
Bottom: softer tyre (the 'option' tyre), at the Malaysian Grand Prix.
  • Also, during the race, both compounds of tyre (hard and soft) have to be used at least once during the race. Initially, in the Australian Grand Prix, soft tyres were marked with a white spot. However, this was difficult to see when the car was in motion and, as of the Malaysian Grand Prix, one of the four grooves in the soft compound tyre is painted white.[16]
  • The teams finishing 5th–11th in the previous seasons' Constructors' Championship are no longer allowed to run a third car on Friday following a rule change.[17] The teams that finish 1st–4th are already banned from doing so.
  • Engine development is frozen from the 2006 Japanese Grand Prix, with these engines being used for the whole of 2007 and 2008. This is described as engine "homologation" by the FIA. It was previously set to be introduced in 2008.[18]
  • All cars are fitted with red, blue and yellow cockpit lights. The purpose is to give drivers information concerning track signals or conditions. The lights must be LEDs each with a minimum diameter of 5 mm and which are fitted in order that they are directly in the driver’s normal line of sight.[19]
  • In order to give rescue crews an immediate indication of accident severity each car must be fitted with a warning light which is connected to the FIA data logger. The light must face upwards and be recessed into the top of the survival cell no more than 150 mm from the car centre line and the front of the cockpit opening and as near to the marshal neutral switch as is practical.[19]
  • The two Friday practice sessions expanded from 60 minutes to 90 minutes. All teams are allowed to use two cars, which may be driven by either the two race drivers or a nominated third driver.[20]
  • The engine penalty is now only applied in the second day of the grand prix weekend. Any engine change in the first day is not penalised.[20]
  • No car is allowed to enter the pits to refuel during a safety car period until all cars are in the group following the safety car and they have been advised that the pit lane is now open. This prevents drivers from racing to the pits immediately after a safety car is deployed. In addition, any lapped cars in front of a car on the lead lap are required to pass the safety car and restart at the end of the line-up instead of maintaining their physical position.[20]
  • The Formula One teams have unanimously agreed to the voluntary early introduction of the testing agreement scheduled for 2008. This limits each team to an annual limit of 30,000 km.
  • The team's second car now has to run with a yellow coloured roll bar instead of a black one. The first cars will still run with a red/orange roll bar. This is intended to help spectators distinguish between first and second cars at further distances.

Circuits

  • A new chicane has been inserted into the straight between Europcar and New Holland (final corner) at the Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona. This was installed in order to slow the cars down before the long main straight, and provide more overtaking opportunities into turn 1.[39]
  • Spa has also undergone track changes, with a new paddock area, a reprofiled Bus Stop Chicane, an extension of the start-finish straight and a change to La Source hairpin.[40]
  • The largest-scale repair in the last 35 years will be done to Autódromo José Carlos Pace in São Paulo, Brazil, to fundamentally solve problem of the asphalt.[41][42] All present asphalt will be removed and replaced with new asphalt.[43] At the same time, the pit lane entrance will be enhanced to improve safety.[44] The circuit is closed and no event held for five months to work, from June to October, until immediately before the event.[45]

Season review

 Races

First races without Michael Schumacher

The season started at Albert Park in Australia on 18 March and Kimi Räikkönen took a lights to flag victory there with Fernando Alonso coming second and debutant Lewis Hamilton finishing 3rd. Felipe Massa took his first pole of the season in Malaysia but Fernando Alonso won his first race with McLaren with rookie, Lewis Hamilton, continuing his excellent pace to finish second. Felipe Massa won from lights to flag in Bahrain and Spain and in both races Lewis Hamilton finished second, becoming the first rookie to finish on the podium in more than his first two outings. McLaren would dominate Monaco with Fernando Alonso winning from Lewis Hamilton after the pair had lapped everybody apart from themselves and Felipe Massa, who was not too far from being lapped.

 Drama and controversy

The Canadian GP was a very dramatic affair with 4 safety car periods and one of the biggest crashes of Formula One in recent years. The race started off with the second all McLaren front row with Lewis Hamilton taking his first pole position followed by Fernando Alonso. Alonso made a mistake in turn 1 losing several places while Lewis Hamilton was opening a gap between himself and Nick Heidfeld. On lap 22 the first safety car period began after Adrian Sutil hit the cement wall. The safety car went into the pits on lap 28 but before the lap could be completed Robert Kubica made one of the most bizarre accidents in the history of Formula One. He apparently lost his front wing after hitting Jarno Trulli. He then went wide and hit a bump on the grass that launched him into the air and into a massive impact with the retaining barrier at a peak G Force of 75G. The safety car was once again deployed and went in on lap 35. Lewis Hamilton once again opened up a gap to second placed Nick Heidfeld until lap 50 when Christian Albers left a lot of debris on the track after a crash forcing the deployment of the safety car. The race restarted on lap 55 and was deployed again on lap 56 after Vitantonio Liuzzi hit the so called `Wall of Champions`. The safety car period was extended after Jarno Trulli hit the tyre barrier at the exit of the pitlane after trying to catch up with the field. On the restart Lewis Hamilton led to the finish to claim his maiden win in only his sixth race. The next race at Indianapolis saw Lewis Hamilton take a lights to flag victory after a 300kph side by side battle with Fernando Alonso for the lead. Ferrari took their first 1-2 finish in France with Kimi Räikkönen winning from polesitter, Felipe Massa.

In Britain Lewis Hamilton thrilled his home crowd by taking his third pole position in front of them. It wasn't to last, however, he went on to finish a distant third behind winner, Kimi Räikkönen and Fernando Alonso. Europe (Germany) would see Lewis Hamilton's run of consecutive podiums come to an end. After a mighty crash in qualifying he started in 10th in the race. On lap 4 he aquaplaned off the circuit in a torrential rainstorm but fortunately for him the race was stopped. He restarted after his car was pulled out of the gravel but after taking a gamble to change to dries on a drying track he spun off several times but recovered to finish 9th, just missing out on the final point.

After a controversial qualifying incident between Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton, Alonso was demoted to 6th on the grid at the Hungarian Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton then took a lights to flag victory with Raikkönen coming second. In Turkey Felipe Massa took a dominant lights to flag victory followed by Kimi Raikkönen and Fernando Alonso. Lewis Hamilton finished fifth after he suffered a tyre failure while running in 3rd. In Italy Fernando Alonso won from Lewis Hamilton followed by Kimi Raikkönen. In Belgium Raikkönen won from Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso.

 Dramatic season conclusion

The Japanese Grand Prix moved to Fuji Speedway and this event was marked by treacherous weather and was started under safety car conditions. Lewis Hamilton survived a brush with Robert Kubica to win from Heikki Kovalainen and Kimi Räikkönen. At the last 3 corners Robert Kubica and Felipe Massa ran side by side in a battle for 6th and Fernando Alonso aquaplaned and crashed on lap 41 of 67. In China Lewis Hamilton won his 6th pole of the season and led up to lap 28 when he was overtaken by Kimi Räikkönen and he then spun off entering the pitlane. The season finale marked the first time since 1986 that 3 drivers had a chance of becoming world champion at the season finale, and the first time since the inaugural season in 1950 that the man stood in third before the final race went on to win the championship, the driver then being Giuseppe Farina. Lewis Hamilton was the favourite with 107 points followed by Fernando Alonso on 103 points and Kimi Räikkönen on 100 points. Lewis Hamilton started 2nd but dropped to the back of the pack after a gearbox problem. He recovered to 7th but Kimi Räikkönen won the race and the championship. The final standings were Räikkönen on 110 points followed by Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso each on 109 points.
