Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Schumacher gives rivals early edge

The Associated Press

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Michael Schumacher must wait for a new Ferrari, a delay that will hardly distress rivals looking for some way to beat the driver who ruled Formula One last season.

The seven-time world champion, preparing for the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, won't get the car until the fourth race of the series. That means he must try to fend off all challenges with a modified version of the Ferrari that proved so dominant in 2004. [...]

"Last year at the same time I had my new car, and obviously it was a very fast toy," Schumacher said. "Now we're running the older car — I'm sure a lot of people would like to have an old car as we have — but I obviously look forward to the new one. I'm pretty sure it's going to be faster than we have now."

Schumacher said Ferrari decided to refine the 2005 car rather than risk it in competition before it is completely ready. [...]

Further expressions of his anxiety over the situation can be seen in this photo.

Poor, worried, chap.
