2009 Formula 1 Season Countdown – 70 Days To Go

70-days

Another 10 days passed, we are now only 70 days from the first F1 race of 2009 season. And we already have some clearer ideas how the 2009 Formula 1 cars will look.

Ferrari kicked off the launch season with presentation of their F60, Toyota followed with their TF-109 and the first week of 2009 launches ended with McLaren and their MP4-24.


During the McLaren 2009 car launch the team also announced that Ron Dennis will step down as team principal and will be replaced by Martin Whitmarsh.

Sebastien Buemi has finally been officially confirmed by Toro Rosso for 2009 becoming the first rookie for 2009 F1 season.

Earlier Max Mosley asked for yet more cost cuts and David Richards more less backed him when he ruled out a bid for Honda F1 team.

Nick Fry emeged as one of the parties interested in purchase of the Honda. Ferrari ruled out possibility of engine supply for the team formerly known as Honda. The one viable option seems to be Mercedes, however according to Norbert Haug the engines will have to be duly paid for.

Force India are yet to show us their new car, they however gave some hints how their 2009 livery might look in their 2009 Formula One calendar.

Donnington Park received their building permit. While doubts about their ability to finance the whole venture persist the work has already begun.

And finally FIA released the (incomplete) 2009 Formula One entry list and the updated 2009 sporting and technical F1 regulations confusing many with the new engine rules …

The 2009 Formula 1 season countdown will be back in 10 days.

    I’m excited what’s comming next tomorrow :) For now Lenovo doesn’t appear on the McLaren’s livery, this means that Williams retained the sponsorship even with the lack of good results. Hopefully the package is a radical change and does return them to the fight of leading the middle group teams!! If more, I would say that I’m dreaming :)
