If so, then surely Toyota would have to pay all their workers for a period of notice of, say, one month or probably two. That should at least allow the Toyota crew some time to go find a job with another team.----------The pay isnt the issue, the issue is that F1 works on a 12 month Calendar, generally they have their staff all in place before developmment begins in earnest in November so staff will now be lucky to find work in F1 over teh next 12 months. It will be even worse for Toyopta's people as most of the vacancies would have already been targetted by BMW staff.Brawn developing for 2010 all summer? I doubt it, yes they probably started their program like the rest as soon as they knew what the regs would be but I'd be surprised if that was really any more of a commitment than any other team, the only one that might have started later was Red Bull.Aljesuari deserves his chance in 2010, he came into a 2009 car without any real testing and learnt to drive the thing reasonably well, certainly as well as any other mid-season starter did. Given a pre-season I think he could do very well for the team. Buemi was by far and away teh best rookie, Koba only took part in 2 races for heavens sake and in one of those he drove in such a kamikaze fashion that the only surprise was that he didnt take someone out sooner.

I really think Andrew should give you your own blog.Congrats to the whole team, well done BBC. So nice to get back to uninterrupted coverage again and "The Chain" brings back so many memories of Mansell and Senna.Have a good winter, see you in the spring.

Maybe if he is able to test/develop next years car he will be more comfortable racing it.

Sebastian Buemi did an excelent job in one of the slower cars on the grid, getting into Q3 in qualifying and always near the top of the time sheets in practice. I If he can cut out the mistakes, I can see him being a top driver in the future. Congratulations to Brawn and Jenson Button. Hope he manages to be the first brit to retain the title next year.

With BMW waiting on the sidelines understanding who will, who might and who will-not make it to next year is worthy of a Mole Column.

Promises great things for them I hope :).

(Sorry, I couldn't stop myself. That word has always been used so much in comments to your blogs. (I wonder why?!?:))Having your good self join the fray has put the icing on the cake that is Auntie Beebs coverage of this season! (But if you could teach that (nice) bloke Legard a bit about broadcasting etiquette, I would be forever in your debt!)Keep that insight in shape over the winter Ted, your country needs you.GREAT STUFF!

Although being a McLaren fan I would have liked a bit more insight as you did with Red Bull and Brawn but I will forgive you this once. Looking forward to 2010 already.
