Start of the F1 season 2011

Posted on:

So there are no new teams this year but there are some rule changes and of course, new drivers. With the first race of the season being cancelled (boo) due to some feisty citizens the first race of the season will be in Australia on the 27th of March.

Rule Changes.

Cars can now have an adjustable rear wing, this is meant to booste over taking.

KERS is back. Basically a booste button for teams that can aford it.

No F duct this year, but the KERS and adjustable wing should make up for that.

Gear boxes also have to last five races, so lets hope Renaults are up to scratch!


Red Bull

– Sebastian Vettel and Mark (so unlucky) Webber

McLaren – Jenson Button and Lewis (yes i do love myself) Hamilton
Ferrari – Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa
Mercedes GP – Nico Rosberg and Michael (must cheat) Schumacher
Renault GP – Nick Heidfeld and Vitaly Petrov
Williams Racing – Rubens (where’s my zimmer) Barrichello and Pastor Maldonado
Force India – Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta
BMW Sauber – Kamui Kobayashi and Sergio Perez
Torro Rosso – Sebastien Buemi and Jamie Alguersuari
Lotus – Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalainen
Hispania – Narain Karthikeyan (and about another 4 ‘reserves’)
Virgin – Timo (who wants to get taken out) Glock and Jerome D’Ambrosio

My Predictions.

1. Mark Webber (hopefully)

2. Fernando Alonso

3. Sebastian Vettel

4. Felipe Massa

5. Lewis Hamilton

6. Nico Rosberg
