Lewis's move means it has to be Vettel vs Alonso this season.

McLaren will keep pushing as they will want to win the WCC for the first time since 1998, but they won't want Hamilton to win the driver's title.

Will Buxton says the 2009 Brawn was a Super Aguri? Designed by them ? First I've heard of this. Can anyone else shed anymore light on this?

http://willthef1journo.wordpress.com/20 ... he-puzzle/

First I've heard of this. Maybe it's well known and I missed it. :p Surely it can't be the whole car Super Aguri designed? They were shut down in May. Probably just the double diffuser which Honda then adopted. A bit of digging elsewhere and apparently Super Aguri came up with the double diffuser then some engineers went to Brawn, some Williams and some Toyota. The teams that had it.

EDIT: Buxton says they started work on the car back in 07 hence why they were so far down the line with it.

Also on Twitter Jenson Button has stopped following Hamilton and started following Perez. :lol:

Well that's all kinds of awful, combined with the ticket price I don't think a USGP will remain on the calendar for very long, upside is now we have a great modern road course in the US for other purposes (i.e. NASCAR, Sports Cars, MotoGP)

I agree with the article, especially the point that it can go a long way towards cracking the American market. A TV deal like this I think would be excellent:
-All sessions of all rounds live on SPEED and SPEED.COM
-Asian races live late Saturday night on FOX, European races delayed 1pm on FOX, American races live Sunday afternoon on FOX
-Session replays and highlights available on SPEED.COM

That way F1 can attract all US markets possible (FTA TV, pay TV and online) and becomes more accessible to US viewers.

Anyone know if Autosprint magazine in Italy is reliable? Read some interesting stuff from them about Perez / Ferrari but don't know if it's unreliable gossip or if there might be something in it.
