2010 Season Best Ever?

Formula One

comment on the article

I think the 2010 season has the potential to be the best ever. I am eagerly awaiting it more than any season in the last 10/15 years, probably not since Senna was racing.
We have Alonso Vs Hamilton
We have Button and Vettel either of which could prove to be the best drivers out there.
We have Webber and Barrichello driving better than ever.
Kubica has gone to Renault. Heidfeld is looking better every season.

Red Bull and Brawn surely will push on from this season and be battling it out with McClaren and Ferrari.

Plus we have the new teams.

What do others think, should I be so optimistic for the 2010 season?

Optimism never hurts anyone. You should be so optimistic for next season.

The no-refuelling regulations should be interesting; the new driver pairings; the new teams and new circuit(s) - Korea and "Donington" all add up to a great season in prospect.

Should be fascinating.

I've said for ages, that next year will be AWESOME!!

However, we need Kimi in the MM

Then we can have a repeat of 2007 when the 3 best drivers and former WDC's, are in some of the best cars

And discover, if my opinion about them been the best 3, is valid

Not ruling out Button or Vettel, by the way

Let's face it - we've had a series of pretty good seasons since the Red Tide of '04, but each of them has been special for a different reason: Renault's resurgence in 05 & 06, the arrival of Lewis & Kimi nicking the title from under him in 07, the nailbiter of 08 (not helped by some dubious stewarding), and (as AloonatronRex pointed out) the closeness and freshness of this year's racing.

We've never had it so good, frankly!

Beats me why so many people insist on finding fault...winkeye

After over a decade bemoaning the lack of British success in Formula One, we now have two successive champions and inevitably some idiots are questioning or even downright denouncing their accomplishments. It would be laughable if it wasn't so petty and vindictive.

Along the same line as that, it's interesting to think that the other drivers will now be thinking to some extent about ending the British 'domination' of Formula One and trying to claim the title for their own nations. Quite a turnaround, I must say.

Well. let us all hope there isn't some loop hole out there in the rules waiting for some Clever Person at Brawn to stumble unpon and make a complete harsh (spectable wise) of the first couple of races as we had this year. When the FIA say, there will be no refuelling, I hope everyone is going to use the same fuel and not have some teams using some fuel hybrid made from Bananas (and 1/3 lighter than the normal stuff). Spare a thought for Africa (if there is a banana rush). Please someone should define what "FUEL" means in the rules.

Alonso vs Hamilton... very ironic. Hamilton is world champion due to the fixed race Alonso won.... Their name is really written in history.

-------------------

Shut up. Hamilton was World Champion due to the fact that he got more points than anyone esle. In Singapore that was due to the fact that Massa drove away with a fuel hose on his car, not because of the fix.

Just an (unfortunately negative) thought - with no race fuel strategy in play in qualifying and no kers surely this means that the faster cars will be at the front of the grid and slower ones at the back with little exception (bar driver error). This could mean that from the start line there could just be a procession with car order already sorted? I do however accept that drivers will influence this with qualifying performance and also the cars handle differently in qualifying compared to with a full race worth of fuel onboard...
Am excited about next season though.

It'll go down to tyre wear as well Jru430 - the most conservative should do well!

2010 sure is shaping up to be a fantastic season. With fuel regulations and possibly 4 teams worth a shout at the constructors (Brawn, Red Bull, Mclaren and Ferrari) if they come good. The only thing worring me is the British GP. It surely won't be the same without either Silverstone or Donnington
