Welcome Back Schumi !

It's finally comfirmed ! Michael Schumacher the living legend of Formula One is BACK !! Yes. Seven time world champion Formula One Driver, Forty One and Still Going Strong... But.... The Ferrari Legend is not driving for the red Prancing Horse, he's driving for his country ! Well... Literally.... Mercedes is German... He's German.... His future team-mate, Nico Rosberg is German.... Go Germany right ? However, Ross Brawn the team principle is not German.. He's pure English...
Goodbye Jenson Button and Hello Michael Schumacher ! Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton both are English.. No communication hurdles there.... And both of them could enjoy evening tea with each other on the patio... XD
Another surprise move was done by Petronas whom has signed a sponsorship agreement with Mercedes... I would expect Petronas to back our own Malaysian-based Lotus team.. Well... Michael will be wearing the Petronas Logo everywhere he go next year and doing lotsa public appearance during the Kuala Lumpur GP... Is that cool or what ?!!
The team, formerly known as Brawn GP, will now be named as Mercedes GP Petronas Formula One Team.
It would be a very interesting line-up next year in Formula One....! Although, no Kimi......=(...

P/S : I hope Schumi can kick Ferni's butt next year !

Lotus F1 team names 2010 drivers lineup


I'm glad Lotus F1 are aiming high for their 2010 season debut. They have named Jarno Trulli (former Toyota Driver) and Heikki Kovalainen (former McLaren Driver). Fairuz Fauzy (former A1 team Malaysia) would be the reserve/test driver. Too bad Takuma Sato didnt get the job thou. But as far as I've seen, Kazuki Nakajima is better then Sato. Well, that's from my perspective. However, I'm still grieving that Kimi will not race next year. Heikki driving for Lotus is good enough. He's from Finland too ! haha ! Mika Hakkinen , Kimi Raikkonen and Heikki Kovalainen ! Even their names has similar tone... !

Oh well.. Dont set high hopes thou... If Ferrari did lapped Lotus, Its okay. As long we are in par with the other new comers... ! and please please please please dont always finish last just like Alex Y...

I wonder how much Malaysia contribute to back Lotus F1......

Jarno Trulli was paid $6.5m in 2009
Heikki $ 2.8 by McLaren (2009)
