    h1A weekend of goodbyes/h1

    With the final race inevitably come some departures from the sport; a few people know already that this will be their final weekend in F1, others will have it decided for them over the winter. Each team will be shedding a lot of jobs over the coming months as the teams downsize from their bloated pre-credit crunch staffing levels.


    This will be BMW’s last race.


    For Dr Mario Thiessen, the BMW pullout is a huge personal blow and this could well be his last race. If it turns out that way he will be the third team principal to leave the sport in 2009 after Ron Dennis and Flavio Briatore.


    No-one knows whether we will see Kimi Raikkonen behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car again.


    Ferrari team mate Giancarlo Fisichella will likely be making his final GP start.


    Jarno Trulli might find himself out of a drive next season.



    Some of the younger drivers might not get their contracts renewed; Romain Grosjean, who has struggled in the Renault since Valencia. Kazuki Nakajima will not be feeling overly optimistic about his chances. Tonio Liuzzi may not have done enough to satisfy the increasing ambitions of Force India team.


    The election of a new FIA president might see key changes; It will be interesting to see whether Race directors Charlie Whiting and Herbie Blash as well as chief steward Alan Donnelly remain in their roles.


    F1 doctor Gary Hartstein will be replaced by someone with links to Jean Todt’s close medical friend Gerard Saillant.



    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    Vettel leads Red Bull one-two in Abu Dhabi


    Sebastian Vettel led Mark Webber in a Red Bull one-two as the team completed its domination of the final part of the 2009 season by winning the inaugural Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.


    The result also confirmed Vettel as championship runner-up behind Jenson Button (Brawn), who took only his second podium of the second half of the year in third, right behind Webber after a fraught late battle.


    Pole-sitter Lewis Hamilton had to retire early with brake problems.


    The outgoing champion had been tipped to dominate following his absolute command of qualifying and much of practice, but looked vulnerable from the outset. He was unable to get away from the two Red Bulls, and had difficulty slowing his McLaren from the early stages, even before his team radioed him to warn of a right rear brake issue.


    The Brawns were also able to match Hamilton's pace, with Rubens Barrichello falling behind Button on the opening lap after losing a chunk of front wing in a Turn 1 brush with Webber.


    Hamilton stayed ahead of Webber at the first stops, but Vettel ran two laps further than the McLaren and was able to emerge with a comfortable lead - despite a pitlane scare when Toro Rosso's Jaime Alguersuari accidentally pulled into RBR's area just as Vettel was approaching. The Spaniard was hurriedly ushered back out and then retired on track with a gearbox failure.


    Two laps later Hamilton became the race's second retirement, McLaren deciding that it was unsafe to allow him to continue with the brake problem and ordering him back to the garage.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    Alonso: Ferrari's form not a concern


    Fernando Alonso sees no reason why his new Ferrari team will not be fighting at the front of the grid again next year - even though the Italian team has failed to match the surge up the grid of rivals McLaren.


    Ferrari opted to stop development of its 2009 car earlier this year in a bid to focus its efforts on 2010 – which hurt its chances of making much progress up the order in the second half of this season.


    And although McLaren has ended the year as the team to beat following Lewis Hamilton's strong second half to the campaign, Alonso thinks that current form will have little bearing on pace for 2010.


    "I think both started at the back – McLaren started even worse than Ferrari but they did a very good job and now they have maybe the best car," said Alonso.


    "Here, they were very dominant all weekend and in Brazil also, starting near the back, Hamilton finished on the podium. Really, it is a very quick car.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    Donington owner Tom Wheatcroft dies


    Tom Wheatcroft, the man who revived Donington Park as a motor-racing venue in the 1970s, died yesterday after a long illness.


    Lifelong motor-racing fan, Wheatcroft was a regular at Donington during the 1930s, witnessing the clashes between Auto Union and Mercedes-Benz grand prix cars, and after making a fortune in construction and property he acquired the park in 1971.


    The track had closed in 1939 and was used by the Ministry of Defence during the Second World War, which left it unfit for racing when motorsport in Europe restarted in the second half of the 1940s. After taking it over, Wheatcroft placed his growing racing car collection at Donington, where it remains to this day, and on 27 May 1977 the track held its first race meeting in 38 years.


    In 1985, the track was extended to 2.5 miles with the addition of the Melbourne loop in preparation for hosting its first British Motorcycle Grand Prix in 1987. This remained Donington's blue riband event to today, although next year Silverstone will take over the race.

    Here are the results of the inaugural Abu Dhabi GP



    Abu Dhabi GP Result



    - Formula 1 - Season 2009 - -1011308



    RedBull's dominant performance after Hamilton starting from pole retires from the race with a brake problem. The best overtaking move of the race by Kobayashi against Button while the best attack and defend situation between Button and Webber in the ending stages of the GP. Ferrari who had a chance to get past McLaren for the 3rd spot in the WCC because of Hamilton's retirement were not able to score a point as their both drivers finish the race outside the top 8 while Heikki ended the season behind Massa with the same points as Massa with more races under his belt during this season. And last but not least a good looking Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina Circuit.

    Hamilton confident of 2010 title shot


    Lewis Hamilton says McLaren's late season surge has left him optimistic about the team being back in the hunt for world championship glory next season.


    Although he still feels that the MP4-24 has its flaws, the outgoing world champion believes the fact the team got to the bottom of went wrong with its 2009 design is key to ensuring it gets its 2010 car spot on.


    "It is extremely encouraging," said Hamilton about the end of year form. "I cannot express how encouraging it is. When you come from a team where for two years you have had a good, competitive car, to the beginning of the year where you had your doubts and you felt the car was just nowhere, and didn't know when or if it would get better, it is encouraging for the future.


    "But it is also such an encouraging feeling to be working so close with everyone, my team-mate, and all the guys back at the factory. Bit by bit we are getting there."

    The 2009 season has drawn to a close on one of the most spectacular looking race tracks. designed in recent years. The starting time, finishing in the dark, the lights, the facilities and the back drop made for great viewing. It will grow more with time and plans are already in place to extend the seating capacity to 70,000 for next year's race.

    The race itself more or less lived up to it's billing and though it was clear from the first few laps that Vettel had things under control, the retirement of Hamilton with right rear brake problem deprived viewers of what could have been a great battle for the win that would have added to the spectacle on this, the first race held at Yas Marina. A nice battle between Webber and Button towards the closing laps and a drive by Kobayashi that belied his rookie status. Further down the field there was disappointment for the more established stars, Rakkonen failing to make any impression and failing to get two points that would have helped Ferrari in the constructors champion Fernando Alonso, driving his last race for Renault would have wanted to go out on a high with some sort of points finish driving a dog of a car. He finished with only 26 points to show for his effort all season, something he will be looking to overhaul with the first three or four races next season. Robert Kubica having tangled with Buemi had to settle for tenth place while running up in points. He is on his way to Renault next season with a one year deal, and the latest rumor doing the round is that he will be joining his friend, Fernando Alonso at Ferrari from 2011.

    Congratulations to Button on winning his ONLY world championship. Next season should be great with no refueling and drivers having to qualifying on almost empty tanks and having to adopt a different approach to racing. Their initial laps next season would be somewhere in the region of 5 seconds a lap slower to what they would do towards the end of the race. Those with race craft will excel next season.

    It's been great fun enjoying this thread with fellow F1 fans and i look forward to 2010 and hope to see the regulars like NIghtSurfer, Begalr_Begi, Comtrak, Kizzi, Sub7er post more regularly here. Also welcome once again two new people, Raptor21 and Shehryaar. Last but not least, a big big thank you to Genius83 from all of us for providing us with regular updates, without his input this thread would not be what it has been through out the season. He has worked very hard to keep this thread alive and really deserves a big thank, so thank you bro for all you have done all through the year (Y)

    Hope to see you all on the 2010 thread.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    Anytime little bro. Yes, it would be a nice way to start the new thread if you post the season results with your scoring formula, and sure by all means start the 2010 season thread and hopefully your scoring system will be the first post on it.


    I think i speak for everyone in saying a big thank you to you for your efforts through out the season.


    I have not heard from Beglar, mailed him a couple of weeks back. Hope all is well with him and he recovers fully, wishing him the best. Also it would be good to see NightSurfer back. He has been busy with studies and work this season plus all the other regulars too.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    What about the first ran out of fuel situation for a long time for Jaime Alguersuari after he overshoots his pitstop and ended in the RedBull's pitbox before leaving the pits on fumes and in the middle of his next in-lap been ran out of fuel also this incident happens at most crucial time as Vettel was about to pit for his first stop just about the same time.

    The last post for 2009 F1 season in this topic the new season topic will be started shortly and here is the final news piece to say goodbye to a eventful and controversial season.


    A number of lasts in Abu Dhabi


    The final race of the season always features a number of “lasts” ahead of the winter break. Abu Dhabi 2009 is no exception as the grid is set to be shuffled with driver moves, team ownership and engine supply changes ahead of the 2010 season.

    BMW Sauber are set for their 70th and final grand prix at a time when it is not clear whether its new owners – Qadbak – will conclude an agreement with the rival teams, the FIA and the commercial rights holders to compete next season. BMW Sauber, who made their debut in 2006, recorded one win with Robert Kubica in Montreal last year. Kubica himself is set for his final race with the team before moving to Renault next year.


    The race will also mark the final race with Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS) in its current guise. Promoted by former FIA president Max Mosley, the introduction of the KERS this year has proven expensive and controversial. Only Ferrari and McLaren are running KERS this weekend before the voluntary agreement to drop the technology comes into force. The systems could be reintroduced in 2011, but these are likely to be standard designs, rather than bespoke team designed and developed units.


    The 55 lap grand prix will also be the final race where refuelling is permitted. Next season the cars will start the race with enough fuel to complete the race distance.


    After a two-season stint, Williams has announced that they will not be using Toyota engines next year. The Grove-based team will switch to Cosworth, while Nico Rosberg has confirmed it is his final race with the team before moving to Brawn or McLaren.


    Giancarlo Fisichella is about to start his final grand prix before standing down and starting his new career as Ferrari team test and reserve driver. With three wins from his long career, as well as a stunning second position with Force India at Spa Francorchamps this year, the Italian veteran jumped at the chance of replacing the injured Felipe Massa from the Italian Grand Prix onwards. While he has struggled at Ferrari, it was a fitting end to the Fisichella story.


    A number of other drivers are set to compete in their final grand prix before moving teams. Fernando Alonso’s second spell with the Renault team is about to come to an end as he prepares for his move to Ferrari alongside Felipe Massa next season replacing Kimi Raikkonen. The 2007 world champion has been linked to both McLaren and Toyota next year, the former being his only realistic option he claims.

    Jarno Trulli is not expected to be retained at Toyota next season and could well be making his final start for the team. He has been linked with the new Lotus outfit, while current team-mate Timo Glock is reportedly an option at Renault. Heikki Kovalainen is expected to make way for the arrival of Raikkonen next year and is linked to Toyota alongside Kamui Kobayashi.



    There could be further engines changes for next season. Red Bull is hoping to switch from Renault to Mercedes power and should Sauber make the field with Qadbak backing, they will run Ferrari engines.
