faster,more transparent stewards,decisions in "09..

The FIA has announced an overhaul to the stewarding system at Formula One events for next season, including a new replay system designed to ensure faster decisions.

Race stewards fell under the media spotlight several times this season, most notably following Lewis Hamilton’s 25-second time penalty for cutting a chicane whilst battling Kimi Raikkonen at Spa.

The new measures should not only mean most decisions are made during rather than after the race, they should also make the whole process clearer to the public, with explanations and video evidence posted on the internet after the race.

In addition, there will be stricter requirements concerning the eligibility of stewards, with the FIA planning to invite a number of trainee stewards to races in order to build-up their experience.

but I think there's been an overreaction to the stewards this year - they've been involved more beacuse drivers are breaking rules often, not because the stewards suddenly feel like exerting their authority

Yay !

The rear wing doesn't look half as bad as I thought it would, on the Ferrari at least

Yup, hoping this car helps Ferrari regain the WDC they lost in 2008. Can't wait to see this car thunder around the tracks !

Looks like a scale model from the last 2 pictures.

That connection for the front wing looks a bit flimsy to me. Dunno how much the wing weighs, but I'd expect a lot of replacement front wings during this season.

I would say new F1 rules have robbed the F1 cars their beauty (?).. F60 looks like a race car of lower spec kind of formula rolon cars. sad :(
