Qualification Turkish Grand Prix of 2009

Comments on the Qualification

I want to begin with expressing my sincere thanks to the FIA for changing the rules for the 2009 season. This has become a change in favour of the spectators. The differences between all the twenty cars are minimal which makes it a lot of fun for us spectators. And even thoug I think the big front wings and small rear wings are still very ugly, the cars are getting more and more beautiful each race I see them. Now, for the qualification for the Turkish Grand Prix of 2009 … I still have hopes for the McLaren Mercedes team, but reality gives another image and I think it is really good if McLaren forgets 2009 and starts working on their 2010 car. If they can compete? We shall know it coming Friday when the FIA publishes the list of contenders for the 2010 Formula 1 Championship. I have allready heard of a ten different teams which have entered their interests in the championship for 2010, so it is a possibility that in the 2010 season not 20 cars will appear, but 40 cars!!! Let’s just wait and see.
