the 2009 Formula 1 Season Thread.

Won't get to a race this season sadly.

Would have done Indy or Canada, but neither are on the calendar.

From what's been said so far it really looks like McLaren and some of the other teams are in trouble. The FIA have passed the diffusers for this weekend, and that puts Brawn in the pound seats based on Winter Testing.

2 3-5 April 2009 Malaysian Grand Prix Sepang International Circuit
3 17-19 April 2009 Chinese Grand Prix Shanghai International Circuit

1. New cars are fugly.

2. It's nice, however, that they don't all look alike for a change.

Re: the 2009 Formula 1 Season Thread.

Looks like it might be an interesting season with a lot of storylines: KERS, diffuser-gate, etc.

Wonder how the folks at Honda feels for chipping in a reported $100 million to see the Brawn use Mercedes power to take the front row?

It will also be interesting to see if USGPE (the former USF1) materializes.

Re: the 2009 Formula 1 Season Thread.

Great start to the season, although certainly not for the Ferrari boys.

Happy to see Button and Rubens at the front. Bummed Trulli got demoted..

Re: the 2009 Formula 1 Season Thread.

I wasnt too happy to see Rubens up there after his super slow start and then trying to make up the spots he lost by diving into turn 1 and taking out 2 cars in the process.

They should take away Vettels penalty and give it to the kube, it was more his fault.

Re: the 2009 Formula 1 Season Thread.

What a long, strange trip back to the top of the constructor's chart for the former Tyrrell team.

Amazing how the top of the order has been completely shaken up this season (granted, its still very very early).

Fixed your post. Colossal Fuckup. So many tire changes. Entertaining race - sort of.

2 for 2 now for button

Also I love the press conference where they show the TV now. Watching the drivers see the start is amazing.

Re: the 2009 Formula 1 Season Thread.

The Chinese GP was sure an entertaining race, but I love watching them race in the wet. And I know we've only had one race in the dry, but it seems to me like the new aerodynamics rules are actually leading to more overtaking, which makes for much more entertaining racing. I'm not falling asleep in the middle, or fast forwarding as much anymore.

Great job by Vettel on the win and Red Bull on their 1-2. Looks like Ferrari is going no where fast this season. I'm hoping Hamilton and McLaren can pull something out though and get some more points, but it's great to see middle of the pack teams from past years suddenly in the front!

Re: the 2009 Formula 1 Season Thread.

Still hard to get over the surprise of Brawn and Red Bull fighting for the lead.

I don't really understand why some of the teams (especially McLaren and Ferrari, since they can afford it) didn't have diffusers prepared in case Brawn and company won diffuser-gate. Might still be more surprise in store this season as the teams bring out new diffusers and implement KERS.

Re: the 2009 Formula 1 Season Thread.

I tend to agree with what they are telling us on Speed. Brawn spent over 1 year on the car whereas mclaren and ferrari spent the latter half of 08 on the 08 car.

Happy Vettel won, but would really like to see Webber win a race this season,

Re: the 2009 Formula 1 Season Thread.

So what do you think, can Newey, Vettel and Webber take brawn out?

Re: the 2009 Formula 1 Season Thread.

I think we'll see a Mclaren resurgence in Barcelona, no idea what Ferrari are doing.

Button is doing superb at building up an early lead in the championship, and with 1 or 2 more wins is a lock.

Re: the 2009 Formula 1 Season Thread.

Before the season started, if you told someone that this late in the year Raikkonen, Alonso and Hamilton's points combined would only be good enough for 5th place in the standings, how crazy would you have looked?
