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 […]
There was supposed to be a video from the Red Bull launch appearing here but unfortunately somehow the something went wrong during the file conversion. I hope later today the video will be ready. If that happens you will see both Webber and Vettel browsing through some comic book. That comic book actually is the Red Bull RB5 launch press pack. And here are the parts featuring Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge the images.
Seven teams have already revealed their 2009 F1 cars (although Williams still only in the interim livery). And as we will not see any more launches for about a month perhaps it is good time to have a little poll on beauty of these seven cars.
So vote for the 2009 F1 car you like the best so far and feel free to say whom you voted for and why in the comments. Photos of all the cars are inside this post, links to more images are on the left side bar in the 2009 Car Launches section:
Red Bull Racing unveiled their 2009 F1 car – RB5 – today in Jerez. The nose seems to be quite different from the other 2009 cars we have seen so far. Interestingly, the shark fin that many teams copied from Red Bull last year is missing on the Newey’s car. While the colour scheme is very similar to previous Red Bull cars the livery does seem to be more glossy this year, at least on these studio images. Generally the car does not look too bad considering the new regulations but I would not really call it a “stunner” …

Sitting at the airport having nothing to do has some advantages. Here is link I received by email short while ago from Red Bull – animated video explaining the evolution from 2008 RB4 to 2009 RB5. Commentary by Sebastian Vettel. And of course there are some sneak previews of 2009 Red Bull car designed by […]
Toro Rosso took their time but at the end they made the decision that many would consider being the right one. They chose Sebastien Bourdais over Takuma Sato for 2009 season. This decision also ends speculations about Jenson Button or Rubens Barrichello possibly joining the Faenza team following collapse of Honda F1 project. This is […]
We were supposed to see 12 teams on the grid in 2008. But Prodrive never made it (because of the customer car rules), Super Aguri dropped out after only four races and barely a month after 2008 season ended Honda bowed out. F1 is facing 9 teams grid in 2009, Toro Rosso is for sale […]
If we are to believe what Motorsport Total presents as their exclusive story we may see from 2010 season brand new USF1 team on Formula 1 grid. The team even has a website USF1.com although the only thing on that website is the logo. The original article reports that the people behind the USF1 team […]
After few weeks break here is another part of the F1 Liveries History post. This time year 1995 when 13 teams entered (although Simtek did not last for too long) and 37 different drivers started races. Forti was the new team on the grid, Jordan was yet to get the Benson&Hedges on board, and there […]
