The 2009 F1 rules are a source of great interest with several radical changes aimed at improving overtaking. Along with bring back slick tyres and reducing wing sizes, teams are expected to be allowed to use adjustable wings. I’m not a fan of the idea. What do you think of it? Cast your vote below…
Markus Winkelhock recently told the German press that he doesn’t expect to get the chance to add to the single race start he made at the Nurburgring for Spyker last year.
