Tickets are on sale for people who have previously attended. This being said, mine have been ordered. We will be sitting at the Senna turn of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve (hopefully). Ticket prices don't seem to have gone up too much, which is pretty good.

Its official. Michael Schumacher will be back for the 2010 season, but not in a red car. That will be pretty strange, as most of his career was spend in a red car.
He has signed a 3 year contract with Mercedes, and more importantly (for him) with Ross Brawn, the one behind most of Schumacher's championships (and more importantly Jenson Button's 2009 world championship)
I can't say that I am thrilled with his return, but it will be interesting to see how he holds up against the younger racers.

Lotus have signed Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalinen to be their drivers for next season.
Really, seems to be a safe choice, rather than a flashy one. Both men are solid drivers, with flashes of brilliance, but will be good for a team that is just starting to get back into the game.

Button and Brawn were presented with their Championship trophies.
Too bad that Brawn is no longer now, and will soon be Team Germany (Mercedes), and McLaren will soon be Team Britain. Add Team USF1, and then there will be an interesting brawl. Virgin who was one of Brawn's only sponsors seems to have taken up residence with one of the new teams, to become Team Virgin, which just occurred to me is a really funny name.
Go Go Team Virgin... (lol)

Sorry no update for quite some time, but there just hasn't really been anything going on lately.
Silverstone has been granted license for the next 15 years, so Donnington won't be hosting (what a shock).
There is talk of every team getting together and unveiling all their car prototypes at the same time (seems a little odd, but quite cost-saving)
There will be a new points system next year to compensate the fact that there will be 13 teams on the grid. the top 10 finishers will be getting points. 25, 20, 15, 10, 8, 6, 5, 3, 2, 1. I think that this is an excess of points for the top 3. I can see starting at 15, but 25 seems like a lot of points and that it would be really hard to catch up from the back. Then again I resisted when they went from the top 6 to the top 8 runners too.
Change may be good, this will be left to be seen.
