Jenson wins!

‘Phoenix from the flames’ is an overused phrase relating to Brawn GP, but it’s no less apt because of it. A Brawn one-two in Australia – who’d have predicted that only a month ago?

The true picture?

It’s hard to come to terms with all the stories that have just been generated by that qualifying session! Is your head as muddled as mine? I’ll do my best to un-muddle but it isn’t easy!

Australian GP preview

It’s nearly upon us. Even with all the winter testing and new regulations excitement, it’s felt like a long time since Felipe Massa took the chequered flag in Brazil last year.

On track

As I was just having a flick through the F1 teams’ press sites I thought I’d share with you some of the images they each have of the cars testing at various locations this week. The shots are good, and put the cars in context so it’s easier to understand what they look like.

2009 car reveal

Don’t know about you, but I always get a bit twitchy about new season F1 car launches. It’s the first proper sign of what we can expect from the year ahead. Yes, they’llll change quite dramatically between launch and race, but it’ll be interesting to see how they compare visually with less aero and slicks.

Variable testing

Man, but next year’s F1 cars are ugly. I’ve been itching to see one up close since the regulation changes were announced earlier this year, and yesterday, at the first full test of the winter ‘off season’, I got my chance as the new breed broke cover for the first time.

2009 F1 starts here

Just seen a pic of the new-shape BMW F1 car testing at Barcelona and I’m not quite sure what I think I’m looking at. What kind of racing car has had a front wing like this? Anyone got any ideas? I’m thinking F3000 car or Champ Car, but not recent.

Sore points?

How much would you pay for an F1 championship point? Cash up front, for the privilege of having it sitting there on your mantelpiece, to impress visitors and so forth. A tenner? A few hundred? How about $28.5 million?
