Laguna Seca. I bet that name gives racers goosebumps.
It'll be awesome to see how the F1 cars handle the corkscrew.
Heres how they will handle.

Oh yes, F1. The fever has started already. 2010 is a great year for sports. With the World Cup as well. I am seriously planning on going and watching a race live, as i have never done so before. Most probably the Malaysian GP as it is the cheapest (i think!). And yes, it will be awesome to see Schumi back on the track! You guys think his age will affect his driving?

Cheers!
No, qualifying hasnt changed. Its the same format. Only the points system is changed and also the ban on refuelling.

Looks like this is where Mercedes will have some clear advantage as it is known for its fuel efficiency..

No way, his age will be a concern. Look at him, he has already started testing a GP2 car, such is his determination and will. One of the main reasons why he has survived at the top for so long.

Schumi's GP2 test has been good so far.

He's posted a lap time of 1:24.6 which is just 0.4 secs off the GP2 track record. Im sure he'l be able to get even closer as he gets used to the car and track.

I also looking forward to this season with Schumi returning , He is 41 but has the heart of a 20 year old.

Another interesting thing would be the battle between Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button at McLaren, Lewis has been with this team since he was 12 but Jenson is the reigning champ, would be interesting to see how that battle plays out.

Qualifying has some minor changes though. For one, there are a larger number of cars so eight cars will drop out of the first and second sessions (assuming we have a full twenty six car grid). The remaining ten will shoot-out but no longer are they required to have any extra fuel on board than what is needed for the quali lap. So its more of a purist qualifying now.

Yeah, that's right. This will really help the drivers to post some challenging times.

So, basically, from 2010 onwards Q3 will be like the Q2s of 2009 and the years preceding.
Nice!

Missing the race?? I cant even imagine it in my wildest dreams. I already gave an ultimatum at home that on the race weekend whatever may come, I am not going to get out of the house. No grocery shopping, no movies, no drives and definitely no disturbance at home.
