2009 Formula 1 Season Countdown – 10 Days To Go


It is official now, we are only 10 days from the start of 2009 Australian Grand Prix – this is the final brief countdown post.

The Barcelona and Jerez tests suggest that Brawn GP may be the surprise package of the season. BMW Sauber, Toyota, Ferrari and Renault all seem to have strong packages too. The same can’t be said about McLaren at the moment, but they still have one and half of testing left…

Renault have confirmed they would run with KERS in Melbourne, BMW Sauber only said they will be making decisions on race to race driver to driver basis, Intentions of Ferrari and McLaren are not yet known. Williams, Toyota, Toro Rosso, Red Bull, Force India and Brawn GP will surely race in Australia without KERS.

FIA implemented new point system for 2009 season. Well, point system remains the same, but the wins not points will matter when it comes to drivers’ championship. Well and a driver who only 2 weeks ago still faced at least a year on sidelines is all of a sudden mentioned as one of the title contenders

This time next week I will on the way to Melbourne. After the wonderful experience I had there last year I simply could not resist going again this year. But before that several 2009 season and Australian GP preview posts will appear here, so check back !

And do not forget – The 2009 Prediction Game is already on ! If you haven’t done so yet, join in ! If you did, you may want to check your drivers’ champion prediction, there is still chance to make a change !

    Can’t wait for the next week to pass.

    Enjoy your self in Melbourne mate, will be there myself taking it all in and cheering those racers on!

    Always fun in Melbourne, and plenty of things to do, though my after qualifying/race options usually range from The Irish Pub Bridie O’Reillys to dinner wherever we stop at then to the casino to try my luck!

    Whatever you find yourself doing in Melbourne, hope you enjoy yourself as much as you did last year!
