Champion team Brawn GP remains listed under its 2009 name on the entry, but the FIA noted that it "has indicated its intention to change its team name to Mercedes Grand Prix prior to the start of the 2010 season" following its purchase by the Germany company.

I LOVE when McLaren says 'aggressive' and thinks in something radical... :)

I heard somewhere the car they're building won't see a wind tunnel...embarassment will surely follow if that's true.

Jules Bianchi gets test "undefined role" at ferrari. Good luck to him and nice to see Ferrari allowing a developing young driver a place.

Well the Finnish media has to have the best explanations to back up their rumours. :roll:: According to Mtv3, Kovalainen will be driving for Renault, because his next years Renault helmet has been seen painted at the Uffedesigns-place. Uffe Tägström denied these rumours, but Mtv3 still seems pretty convinced. And someone has also seen helmet's fit for rallying purpouses being made there and appearently they are Räikkönen's next years helmets. If you're wondering who Tägström is, he is the guy who has designed both of these Finns helmets for many years. I seriously doubt this story, but I still do believe that Kimi will be driving a Citroen next year.

I don't have time to translate these right now and I'm not a very good translator either so use Google translator if you are interested.

Adam Carroll is in serious negotiations with an F1 team about a seat on the grid next year, probably Lotus I'd imagine.
