2010 Formula 1 Season Build-Up

With the 2009 season wrapped it's time to look ahead. Silly season has opened with the switch from Alonso to Ferrari but a lot is still to be determined. I'll keep the entry list in the next post updated as news hits us.

with his solid performance all season long, it amazes me his services were not kept on at BGP.

It will be fascinating to see all of the old guys that dont make it to 2010: Trulli, Fisi, etc. And some of the young guys that may not make it either.

Good tire performance flatters a bad car, and you want the race between constructor, not the tire supplier...

Indeed, when there were Birdgestone VS Michelin or Goodyear VS Bridgestone, everyone was blaming the tires for the bad performance, and then there was the problem of tire suppliers designing their tires accordingly to the indications from the main team/s and not just so that they would have been good tires period.

A bad tire can ruin the whole car balance and performance. they aren't going to get point for that, and it's something completely out of the control of the team, even more than a supplied engine, so I never liked that.
The problem of the supplied engine is a bit more relevant now that you can significantly update the engine, so if your supplier isn't smart enough to modify what's it's ok to change and in a good way too, you're going to be pretty pissed.

In other news, RBR will still use the Renault engines next year, Kobayashi has 80% chances to stay with Toyota (if Toyota stays with F1 that is, so said Howett, an Sauber will gift a former F1 race car to Heidfild as a thank yo for his commitment with the Swiss team.

Time to well spend another dollar.

It seems Toyota is withdrawing this year, no 2010, and that's why Ecclestone was sure they would have found a solution for Sauber...

I'm pretty sure this is probably true. Toyota have disappointed ever since their participation in the sport. Being the largest automobile manufacturer in the world you would have expected them to do well. But they have never really proven to be on form for more than one week at a time. Therefore never grabbing any top drivers to join the team. It just seems that somehow japanese motorsport has never really cracked it in F1 for a number of reasons. But I'd rather see sauber remain in the sport than toyota i have to say. So this is probably good news.

I think you'll find that Honda won all but one race in 1988.
