Rules

There are some important changes in the F1 rules this year including a revised points system, the banning of refuelling and new, narrower front tyres.

Find out more about the rules changes below:

Calendar

There are 19 races on the calendar this year. The biggest change is the addition of a new Grand Prix in Korea to be held in October.

This year also sees the return of the Canadian Grand Prix, which was missing from the 2009 schedule.

The German Grand Prix switched from the Nurburgring to the Hockenheimring (it rotates venues every year) and Bahrain and Silverstone each have new sequences of corners.

    I only really started reading F1Fanatic religously in the middle of last season. Without a doubt, the best place to go for news and all F1 stuff. Great preperation for hopefully an even greater season!

    Keith, any chance of getting the forum back soon…

    Keith,I’ve got something to ask you mate.Its about the refuelling ban.What if a driver runs out of fuel before the end of the race.Will he be allowed to make a pit stop and get refuelled or will that be retirement?

  11. Sush Meerkat said on 12th March 2010, 7:11

    I think its disgusting that Mothers Day falls on the national holiday that is F1′s first race.

  12. Mouse_Nightshirt said on 12th March 2010, 8:53

    Keith, you have. A star beside the Korean grand prix, but no footnote to go with it.

  13. Cole said on 12th March 2010, 15:42

    Can anyone put down a list showing on every team pairing, who has the yellow camera and who has the orange?
    Thanks

    • Sirko said on 12th March 2010, 18:27

      Is it orange? I think it is red… Anyway, look at this. The first driver has red camera, the second – yellow.
