2009 Australian GP – Photos from pitlane

I was lucky enough to get myself into the Paddock Club on Friday. Although my overall impression from the whole experience is rather mixed (I may write another post on that one day) the time spent in the pitlane was definitelly worth the effort to get the pass sorted out :-) . I was quite surprised how rather freely we were allowed to roam around the pitlane and how close it was possible to get to the cars and to some drivers. But no diffusers were on display… Here are the pictures, click on the thumbnails to enlarge the photos:

    In Force India they’re really cutting money spends, extreme wets doesn’t exist anymore, but what for to change the tyre warmers for just writing on them “WET”??? :D

    I’m about to start watching SPEEDtv’s USA coverage of qualifying. Any of you fellas have a rundown on Saturday practice results?

    Any thoughts on whether Ferrari and McClaren will have their own super-diffusers ready for Malaysia next week?

    I’ll take Massa after qualifying. Those Brawn cars will fold. Or their pit crews will eff something up.

    That’s not the big question.The big question. The Elephant in the room is. WTF is going on with McClaren?

    Right? You know that boys. Good. Get to work.

      well, the expected, they knew they are off the pace, just did not really know how much. and Hamilton’s gearbox problems sure did not help their case. at least now they have clearer picture where they stand
