Spanish class

Jenson Button stormed ahead to the win in Spain, leaving teammate Rubens Barrichello wondering how he threw it all away. Still, Brawn will be happy.

Malaysia practice: Ferrari on top

The Ferraris are both back at the top of the time sheets after today’s second practice in Sepang for the Malaysian GP, with Kimi Raikkonen going quickest. But his morning wasn’t without drama. Or smoke. Lots of smoke.

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.

Chinese GP: practice

Lewis Hamilton could actually become world champion on Sunday at the Chinese GP, which is pretty amazing for British fans, when you think we’ve not had a world champion since Damon Hill back in 1996. The chances are pretty slim that he’ll do it mind, but it’s definitely possible.

Japanese GP: Bourdais incident

I’m still not convinced that Sebastien Bourdais should have been given a 25-second penalty for being driven into by another car. Surely as he was racing for position the onus wasn’t on him to let Massa through. Has this ever happened before? (Be quick, FOM are taking these clips down very fast this morning!):

Not-so-silly season

I love the silly season between the end of one year’s racing and the beginning of the next. Who’s going where, which drivers are changing teams, how that impacts on other free seats… there’s just something about the intrigue that gets me. It’s like the US presidential race, but actually interesting.

Italian GP: Minardi’s maiden win

There was an interesting question for Mario Theissen as BMW’s motorsport director emerged from the pits at Monza. Rather than ask for a comment on Kubica’s well-executed third place, a journalist wanted to know if Theissen had any regrets about letting Sebastian Vettel go.
