    let's continue with some news

    http://f1.gpupdate.net/en/news/2009/12/10/fia-suggests-new-points-system/

    "With 13 teams entered (as opposed to 10) for next season, the FIA suggests that the scoring system should be as follows:

    1st - 25
    2nd - 20
    3rd - 15
    4th - 10
    5th - 8
    6th - 6
    7th - 5
    8th - 3
    9th - 2
    10th - 1"

    http://f1.gpupdate.net/en/news/2009/12/10/teams-considering-joint-car-launch/

    "Formula 1 team representatives have explained that the possibility of presenting all new cars together could be a cost-cutting method and a kick-start to the 2010 championship. A January date for the Spanish city of Valencia has been suggested for what would, in principal, be F1's first ever multiple launch."

    Quite like the idea of the massive launch party instead of random ones, not keen on the scoring system - it's fine the way it is (or at least extend it a bit).

    So all the rumors regarding Renault, now it's a bit clearer as of this evening...

    Renault are expected to retain a 25% share in the team while selling the rest, the 2 most likely conenders are Prodrive (/Aston Martin) F1, and Gerard Lopez. Source

    Glad to hear that Silverstone has secured a 17 year deal to host the F1 race for Britian. Donnington is a fine Touring car track but it never came across as somewhere that should host F1.

    Don't agree with the unified launch date for the teams. Seems like just another small step towards everyone in the pitlane driving the exact same car.

    First up, Good Luck to Red Bull, especially that strapping Australian driver.

    What is the refuelling ban? One tank per race?

    I really dislike the new scoring system. Don't change it if it ain't broke. Why don't we just start handing out participations trophies to everyone while we are at it. Points should be rare. Backmarkers should have to fight tooth and nail for a point.

    im also wondering about the refueling ban :3eyes:
    im guessing it might be for qualifying, where you can only get one tank.

    The refuelling ban stands for the race as well.

    No refuelling after the third round of qualifying. LOL, probably due to Ferrari getting the fuel nozzle stuck every second race. J/k.

    Bruno Senna... hmm. Let's hope some of his father's skills rubbed off on him before his tragic passing.

    They're looking to cut costs, a good place to start is the fuel budget. These cars use something like 4 litres per lap. Also, I see it as a good thing to develop cars using less fuel (MOAR power), in these times.

    KERS was a good idea, basing the technology on hybrid road cars. But as a few teams found out, if it failed, you had a 100KG weight disadvantage.

    yeah but it takes the pit strategy out of the race.
