I'd like to see lots more over overtaking especially at the end of a race at the time where drivers 'settle' for what they have.

Don't think the WINS scoring system would work though any better than increase the points differential at the top.

My question though...why the hell would they want to so dramatically change the system at the same time the major technical changes are coming through. I mean at this rate rate Braun could have the season closed out by July under the wins rule.

Enjoyed this arvo's race, if only to see Jensen get so excited by winning And nice to see Kubica start the year as he means to go on, obviously And I didn't mind the late arvo start, at least it wasn't under lights, which has got to be the dumbest idea I've heard.

Good to see the front 3 cars all in the same shot towards the end. Can't imagine doing 200mph straight on into a low sun.

OK revised my opinion of Jensen, since I read his dickhead comment about female drivers in F1. I look forward to seeing him lose during the year.....

McLaren excluded from Australian results

Hamilton excluded from Australian results, Trulli regains third

McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton has been disqualified from last weekend’s Australian Grand Prix after a second stewards’ investigation on Thursday decided both he and his team had provided ‘misleading' evidence during a hearing held after the Melbourne race.

Hamilton crossed the finish line in Australia in fourth, but was subsequently promoted to third after Toyota’s Jarno Trulli was handed a 25-second time penalty for passing his McLaren under the safety car during the race’s closing laps.

Stewards, however, decided to reinvestigate the incident after fresh evidence came to light and convened a second meeting in Sepang. After the hearing, the stewards issued the following statement:

“The Stewards having considered the new elements presented to them from the 2009 Australian Formula One Grand Prix, consider that driver No 1 Lewis Hamilton and the competitor Vodafone McLaren Mercedes acted in a manner prejudicial to the conduct of the event by providing evidence deliberately misleading to the Stewards at the hearing on Sunday 29th March 2009, a breach of Article 151c of the International Sporting Code.

"Under Article 158 of the International Sporting Code, the driver No 1 Lewis Hamilton and the competitor Vodafone McLaren Mercedes are excluded from the race classification for the 2009 Australian Grand Prix and the classification is amended accordingly."

In addition to Hamilton’s disqualification, Trulli’s penalty has been withdrawn and the Italian therefore regains his third place - and six world championship points.

In accepting the stewards' decision, McLaren issued the following press release, stating they have no plans to appeal:

"The FIA Stewards have reviewed their decision of Sunday 29th March 2009, and have excluded Vodafone McLaren Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton from the results of the 2009 Australian Grand Prix.

"Vodafone McLaren Mercedes understands that the Stewards made their decision on the basis of reviewing radio transmissions between the driver and the Team.

"The Team mistakenly believed that the radio transmissions had been reviewed by the FIA on Sunday 29th March 2009, and consequently did not believe it was necessary to discuss them with the Stewards on that date.

"Nonetheless, the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Team now regrets that it did not do so, accepts the Stewards' decision and will not appeal."

The Official Formula 1 Website

I wonder what the Stewards heard when they listened to those radiotransmissions. They're basically saying the team and Hamilton lied to them.

I am greatly amused by this.

Hamilton just down in my estimation. No excuse for telling a lie.

So someone here thinks...wait let me check and read again.... Webber can win this year

Vettel and Webber were great this weekend. Red Bull was very dominant in the race. I heard that they don't have the fancy diffuser or the KERS system, which makes their win even more impressive.

Do you think it was to do with the wet though? 50% of the people they polled on formula1.com think they wouldn't have won in the dry.

Brawn still the one to beat according to Webber -


"There's nothing to suggest a huge amount has changed since Malaysia when, in the dry, Brawn were a second faster than anyone else."

"If you look at the fuel-corrected timings, taking into account the loads being carried by each car, the grid would have been Rubens Barrichello, Jenson Button, Jarno Trulli, Sebastian Vettel, Mark Webber so clearly we have to keep improving."

Brawn is still ahead of basically everyone. But still, if Red Bull keeps improving who nows. We know they have a good car now and obviously they're planning to keep improving it.

They don't have to do the work that the major teams like Ferrari and McLaren need to do now. At Ferrari and McLaren(and that issue they still have to deal with after the Australian grand prix - not very helpful for their position on the grid either) the focus is mainly on trying to fix the problems they have.


Anyway.. this season is bound to be a very interesting one, that's for sure.

F1 is going down the pan fast with all this shit that's going on.

Ferrari lost trying to get the injunction against the FIA's cap plan, Ferrari still say they'll quit if the cap plan stays, Alonso said he doesn't want to race against smaller teams that come into F1, Kimi said he'll go go wherever Ferrari goes, other drivers aren't happy with what is going on, other teams may quit, the British GP is under threat, still no race in Canada, still lousy attendance in places where F1 isn't popular, and those two ageing idiots are still in charge.

Sad, really. Very sad. But as long as Ecclestone's getting paid a squillion and has 19yo honey on his side, and Mosley's got enough cash to be a sadomasochist, all's right with the world apparently
