F1
« on: October 26, 2009, 04:57:45 PM »

One more race to go.   Both titles have been established, Button in his Brawn is the Champion this year.

Abu Dhabi, a virgin race, a twilight race and bragging rights at stake.  The event is sold out, at the new Marina course in Abu Dhabi. and the TiVo is set up to get it all...

I hope Hamilton wins.

I had no idea Ross Braun started his own team, and no idea Schumacher came back to F1 as a driver. I haven't followed F1 for a number of years. The races just became uninteresting to me...and i had/have better things to do with the 3 hours it took to watch one.

It was a very exciting year last year with a new team winning the big prize.  Ross proved his worth, and now will compete with a bigger budget than he used last year to win..     The rules changes for this year are amazing to me, no fuel refills during the race for one big rule change..

I usually TiVo the race so that I can speed through some parts of it, but I would have missed Felipe Massa's unjury unless I watched the whole race.  He ran into a bouncing spring that fell from another car, his helmet saved his life, it knocked him out, he crashed, and spent the rest of the season in rehab....

The American team will NOT have a team or cars on the grid to start the season.  I was hoping they would.

I will still be a glued-to-the-TiVo'd playbacks and still be rooting for either Michael or Lewis H.

So what's with the no refueling thing?  It seems like a major burden on the teams.

All of the teams had to completely change their car design to fit in the extra fuel capacity.  If this is a money saving move on the part of FIA I just don't get it?  I also think it is a change that is dangerous.

The return of Michael Schumacher; four world champions on the grid; at least three leading teams in which team mates will be fighting head-to-head for the title honours; and the prospect of drivers having to display genuine finesse in nursing their tyres now that refuelling has been banned.

Is it any wonder that 2010 is being billed as a fantastic season for the FIA Formula One World Championship? The wait is almost over...

5 days to go...
