2009 F1 season – Final entry list published by FIA

FIA published the final version of the 2009 Formula 1 entry list. If compared with the provisional version there are several changes. The most important one is that Brawn GP is included and as a new entry their drivers were given numbers 20 and 21 (previously assigned to Force India). Force India car numbers will now be 18 and 19. (These two teams will also swap the garages with Brawn GP getting the last one). Felipe Massa will at the end race with number 3 on his after swapping the number with Kimi Raikkononen. Toro Rosso drivers Buemi and Bourdais also switched their numbers perhaps reflecting on fact that Buemi is the rookie.

Update: FIA revised the entry list on March 26 – Force India keeps their original car numbers 20 and 21, Brawn GP gets 22, 23. Force India wanted to get its former 20 and 21 numbers back as all its promotional material and merchandise had been based around these numbers. Brawn GP had no problems with that.

Here is the final version of 2009 FIA entry list:

FIA also announced that the superlicence fees will be reduced in 2010 (without revealing any financial details):

“Following a very positive meeting between FIA President Max Mosley and representatives of the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association (GPDA), a proposal will be made to the World Motor Sport Council to revise superlicence fees for drivers in the 2010 championship. A reduced fee would reflect the major cost reductions that will be brought into the sport for next season.”

I am wondering … The money collected from superlicence fees is spent on improving the safety. Are the major cost cuts also going to affect the safety of drivers ? Or is FIA simply admitting (without saying so) that the fees were simply way too high ?
