FIA reveals 2010 entry list

Formula 1 governing body the FIA has released the entry list ahead of the 2010 World Championship. The field will be the largest of recent years although a number of amendments are still likely to be made, with the addition of the Sauber team being the most likely modification.

With four new teams and the absence of Toyota, the cast of 2010 is already looking somewhat different to that of this season. McLaren retains the No.1 car, courtesy of Champion Jenson Button’s arrival, meaning 2008 victor Lewis Hamilton will race under No.2.

The Mercedes Grand Prix (formerly Brawn) team will take its desired name in the New Year, with Force India’s strong 2009 season leaving them seventh name on the list. Having taken the place of BMW, Lotus has the lowest numbered cars of the new entrants, with the Sauber team still hoping to be included within the array.

At Campos, debutant Bruno Senna has been handed the higher number of car and, as predicted, the Manor team will be competing under Virgin Racing branding.

As usual – in following tradition – there is no car 13, thus meaning Force India is the first team to see its primary driver carry an even number. Once again, the first car of each team will be identified with a luminous red t-bar on the roll hoop, with the second being yellow.


The 2010 FIA Formula 1 World Championship entry list is as follows:

Comments on the Qualification

I really enjoyed this qualification. What an action and what a great circuit Yas Marina Circuit is!

Giancarlo Fisichello is very disappointing in his Ferrari, while Kimi Raikkonen did the best he could and got 11th. It’s a pitty for Force India with both cars on 17th and 18th. McLaren Mercedes shows they are still the best with Lewis Hamilton on pole, only a shame they didn’t do that in the first nine races. Red Bull Racing is going steady for 2nd in the championship with Sebastian Vettel on 2nd and Mark Webber on 3rd. BMW Sauber has both cars in the top ten. If this is the last race they contend, it’s a good result.

I look forward to the race this afternoon.

Comments on the Qualification

Who very exciting this qualification was!!!
How the rain can put great drivers and great teams down in the results!!!

It’s a shame for McLaren Mercedes that Lewis is 18th and Heikki is 17th. Maybe Sebastian was held up by traffic, but Mark saves the day for Red Bull Racing. And what to say about Jenson Button? Jenson makes the championship even more exciting by qualifiying 14th and with Rubens on pole the championship is still very open. For Adrian another good result in his Force India F1. I bet Giancarlo isn’t that happy with the switch he made from Force India F1 to Ferrari?
