Will be interesting season to watch.... new teams vs current teams, new drivers vs seasoned F1 drivers, previous champs like Schumi coming back vs current champs like Button.
Somehow F1 seem like a huge drama sequel despite the fact it is just about cars n their drivers going around in circles!
oh. looks like starhub will still be showing F1 for now
FIA to inspect Mclaren Rear Wing
posted on 09 Mar 2010
McLaren are confident the rear wing on their new MP4-25 car will be pass an inspection by the sport's governing body the FIA.
Red Bull have sought clarification on a slot on the rear wing which reduces drag and increases straight-line speed.
"There's nothing untoward about it, We're quite confident the car is legal," said McLaren managing director Jonathan Neale.
The FIA will scrutinise the wing ahead of practice for the Bahrain Grand Prix.
The organisation had hoped to provide a ruling before the teams arrive in the Middle East for the season's opening race, but a planned visit to McLaren's Woking base was cancelled last Friday.
Charles Whiting, the FIA's head of technical development, was delayed flying back to Europe from the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo and unable to keep the appointment.
Even if the FIA outlaw McLaren's design, the team have a back-up plan in place.
"We're not taking a radically different package but you just never know what the stewards are going to do on the day," added Neale.
"So we have a contingency, but I wouldn't put much effort into it and I'm not expecting it to be used."
The teams begin practice at the Sakhir circuit at 0700 GMT on Friday.
Is Hamilton really that arrogant?
But Hamilton is a very PR friendly guy. I shake hand with him back in 2008 for a Nescafe event, he even asked "How's it going?".
My friend went for a Kimi closed-doors event and Kimi don't even bother to say hi etc.
Who is in Bahrain this weekend? I am thinking of going....is the circuit very far from Manama? Will there be any race queens around since Bahrain is a muslim country?

Mythbusters - the bigger the explosion, the better it is.
McLaren's rear wing declared legal, & Webber dislikes the new track layout at Bahrain.
Btw, how do you pronounce Bahrain?
1. Baa-rain (like in baa baa black sheep)
2. Bahk-rain (sounding like bak, meat in hokkien dialect)
