I think, and hope that Senna will get the second seat next year, next to Button. I think that Senna's name will give Honda also a big (maybe huge) commercial impact.. I mean: the name of Senna.. Back in F1.. Just imagine :roll::

And the name Senna back with Honda,as Ayrton and Honda were joined at the hip big time (Allegedly Honda told Senna they were pulling out of F1 in 1992 before they told Ron Dennis).Also Bruno Senna's a genuine talent who has star quality,and has more to offer,I feel,than Rubens.

the most impressive thing to me that will be the 5th year of Bruno's carrear, he starts to race 4 years ago and in formula bmw, not go-karts, and since there neve won anything but always prove his talent
only 5 years and is now on formula 1, against drivers that have at least 10 years of carrear

@ Zack: thx for the pics

In my opinion, the smaller team like Force India are making a huge mistake by not testing the new aeropackage by now. BMW and Honda might get a development advantage over everybody else.


@ MikaOwns: In my oppinion the Indycar looks better, the whole car is wider and the rear wing is also wider, which suits better.

Awesome pics Zack. You know, I already consider the Williams and BMW to be more beautiful cars than last year's.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I'm under the impression they're not running at their 2009 width yet - once they do, the front wing won't look so stupid..
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

I think BMW & Williams Front & Rear Wing can be consider as 2009 compatible.Apart from that everything will change specially side pods(BMW close i guess ) & engine cover!

Image

Adjustable Front Wing!
Image

3.18 Driver adjustable bodywork :
A single closed section situated each side of car centre line in the volume bounded by :
- lines 450mm and 800mm in front of the front wheel centre line ;
- a vertical plane which intersects these lines at a distance 250mm from the car centre line ;
- and the inboard face of the bodywork described in Article 3.7.5 ;
is allowed to change incidence while the vehicle is in motion within a maximum range of 6 degrees, provided any such change maintains compliance with all of the bodywork dimensional regulations.
Alteration of the incidence of these sections must be made simultaneously and may only be commanded by direct driver input and controlled using the control electronics specified in
Article 8.2. Except when car is in the pit lane, a maximum of two adjustments may be made within any single lap of a circuit.

BMW appears to be at least one step ahead of everybody else. 7 of the 10 teams didn´t even test 2009 wings yet and BMW have already tested an adjustable front wing. The last time I saw a team testing parts of their new car so early, after regulation changes, was McLaren in 1998 and they were head and shoulders above everybody in the first races.

Thanks for all those photos, now that I got used to the dimensions (front wing vs. rear wing) it's actually quite okay, and with the full 2009 Aero package (including chassis) it won't be that bad I believe. Better than all that wing nonsense (like the dumbo wings) which we used to see this year for sure! :D
