Just thought I would get the thread rollin!
Nice to see that the last race of the 2009 season will be held at the new
Dubai course, so the timing will be better for us here in Asia. Hopefully
it will go 'down to the wire' again next year. However if the 'clincher
race' is the penultimate one (Brazil) it will be another late night for us
again!

Yah, how nice if all races are M'sia timing. But we are all getting used
to some 'sacrifice' on our part. Need to chase time at times, in order
not to miss the opening lap. Watching F1 race is getting more n more
exciting as there are many competitive drivers now. Average team also
getting better n better.

Sadly Honda have found 'the going' too tough, and will not be competing in
2009. That leaves Barrichello (oldest driver in F1 since Coulthard
retired) and Jenson Button without a ride!!!!
maybe Barrichello should now retire, but I think Button would like to win a
few more races!

Ferrari ready for Bahrain test
Extracted from f1.automoto365.com

The Ferrari F60 will be back on the track today, Tuesday, 10th February, at the Sakhir circuit in Bahrain. It will be the first of eight days of testing for the Scuderia from Maranello that will go until the 19th of February.



Felipe Massa will be behind the wheel until Wednesday, followed by Kimi Raikkonen on Thursday and Friday, while in the next week Kimi will be on the track Monday, 16th and Tuesday 17th, with Felipe behind the wheel the two final days. BMW and Toyota will also join the Scuderia Ferrari on the track.

The F60 will be fitted with some minor updates, especially on its two wings, while, all things considered, its configured as it was presented during the test sessions at Mugello.



Over the last weeks the Team has been working a lot with the simulator at the FIAT research centre with Marc Gené, Andrea Bertolini and Gimmi Bruni: the main goal was to further deepen the knowledge of the new car and the behaviour of the 2009 tyres.



Meanwhile at Maranello the team analysed the first data collected of the F60's functioning, worked on the test bank and developed new aerodynamic solutions, which will be used at the first GP, on 29th March at Melbourne.

The test sessions at Sakhir will be intense: with this year's tests limited there are just 16 days left until the Championship starts. Therefore it will be fundamental to make the best use out of the remaining time. Under this aspect Ferrari decided, like over the last years, to test on the Bahrain circuit, considering the better weather conditions compared to Europe.



Furthermore the temperatures will be above 20°C, which will enable the team to examine the car's reliability and verify the tyres behaviour under conditions similar to the ones during the season.

Jaime @ AW

Looking forward to the new cars , and the new season. Varied comments on the new cars so far. Hope the new regs make it all even more exciting, and that the economic crisis does not have too much negative impact on the sport.
Interesting to see if ING and RBS are still sponsors despite their troubles and huge financial losses! smile_angry.gif

If you are not living life on the edge.....you are taking up way too much space ;-)
