New Formula 1 Season approaches

The first race of the new Formula 1 season is on Sunday 14 March and I'm looking forward to it as the changes to the rules and shake up of the teams could make it very interesting.

The funny thing is seeing two teams that virtually line up as national ones with the British McLaren and German Mercedes, the team having both their drivers from their home nation. But of course things are not that simple as McLaren use Mercedes engines and Mercedes team is based in the UK. It looks pretty open with 4 former champions driving - Button, Hamilton, Schumaker and Alonso and plenty of budding competitors in other teams.

Personally I'd like to see Williams do better this season and I suspect that Red Bull will go well with Sebastian Vettel their most likely contender for individual honours.
