Wolf is taking a break

After almost 4 years the wolf is tired and needs a break. The motivation is no longer there. With that also is gone the willingness to voluntarily sacrifice all the time needed to keep the site going. Even that bare minimum of time the wolf devoted to the site in 2010 … So, after a […]

2009 F1 cars – It has been 2 months already, do we like them already ? – Poll

Ferrari was the first team to reveal the 2009 car

Ferrari was the first team to reveal the 2009 car

It has been a bit over 2 months since the first all new 2009 Formula 1 car was officially revealed to the public. While the 2009 F1 cars  seem to be quick, some very quick, the opinions on their esthetic qualities are rather divided. We probably expected them to look the way they look but do we also like what we see ? Some people find the cars looking great, some so so, some people believe we will get used to them, some still insist the class ’09 F1 cars are plain ugly. So, what is your opinion about the 2009 F1 cars, 2 months on ?



Jerez test March 2009 – Day 2 – Alonso fastest

The final test before the start of 2009 F1 season continued for the second day in Jerez. Rubens Barrichello, Jenson Button, Fernando Alonso, Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton were in action today. For most of the day the fastest car on track was Brawn. First Rubens Barrichello smashed through the 1:19s barrier with 1:18.398, almost a second faster than his fastest time on Sunday. Jenson Button took over the Brawn GP car for the later in the afternoon and quickly set second fastest time of the day (at that time) – 1:18.892. But then with only minutes left on the clock Fernando Alonso ended his winter testing season with the quickest time of the day – 1:18.343 (qualifying simulation run). Where did that come from ?

Earlier Jenson Button caused a red flag, his day lasted for 12 laps only. Nico Rosberg was the busiest driver today with 123 laps.

The previous best lap time in Jerez this winter was Vettel’s 1:19.055s set two weeks ago.

McLaren MP4-24 at the moment not as competitive as the team hoped

Many people believe that despite slow times posted by McLaren drivers during the recent tests the team still will be right there at the front once the season kicks off. That is of course very much possible. Even Ron Dennis said only few days ago that there is no need to worry and they will […]
