2010 Season countdown – 10 days to go

10 days to go

Here is the final 2010 season countdown post. Just over a week from now the F1 cars will go out for the first practice session of the 2010 season, 10 days from today the Bahrain GP will start.

All is clear, at least it seems to be. We know USF1 will not make it although one of the team founders (Ken Anderson) still hopes they can do in 2011 what they could not in 2010. With USF1 out gone is also the race drive of Jose Maria Lopez. Stefan GP on the other hand failed to make it to the FIA 2010 F1 entry list and so we will only see 12 teams and 24 drivers in 2010 season.


We know that the team that once was called Campos META has changed the owner and became HRT F1 (Hispania Racing F1 Team). We also know the names of all the drivers who will start the 2010 season. The last one confirmed is Karun Chandhok – Bruno Senna’s team mate at HRT. Later today we should also see the HRT F1 car for the first time. For their track debut we may have to wait at least till next Friday and FP1 in Bahrain.

Before all this the winter testing ended. Here are the times and images from the 4 days of Barcelona test:
- day 1
- day 2
- day 3
- day 4

And finally some new logos have appeared on F1 cars this week. Lotus teamed up with CNN while Renault placed a Lada logo on their car following a deal between the Russian car maker and the Renault F1 team.
