by Andrew Maitland What do you remember about the 2009 Formula 1 World Championship? The dawning of Red Bull's soon-to-be utter dominance? (Probably not). The fact that a struggling Kimi Raikkonen would soon swap his Ferrari for a NASCAR? (Oh, was that '09?) The return of slicks? (Nah). No, what you undoubtedly remember is Brawn GP. Or, more accurately, the double diffuser. Over the preceding winter, Honda had suddenly and completely pulled the plug on Formula 1, leaving the three Bs - Ross Brawn, Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello - with a mighty car on their hands but no money and no engine.
Gone is back and gold livery The Haas F1 team has published images of the VF-20, its 2020 Formula 1 car, as it races mid-pack at best with no chance of victory. Haas has reverted to a more back and white livery with some red and gray highlights. Haas has presented its launch car with a distinctly Ferrari-inspired design. Those 2019 Ferrari-esque (Ferrari is the Haas technical partner) details extend from the front wing to the rear endplates.
by Andrew Maitland It must be a little weird to be as good as Fernando Alonso. But while his career is somewhat of a baffling rollercoaster right now, he's laying the foundation of what could become the new and unprecedented benchmark for a life in motorsport not just well spent, but eternally remembered and never matched or surpassed. It's tempting to think it hasn't been a perfect ride for the mercurial Spaniard who is now equally well-known on both sides of the pond, but I think that's just plain wrong. Fernando Alonso's career was just so ... Fernando Alonso.
by Andrew Maitland Coming in at an impressively arduous 21 races, the 2019 Formula 1 season may have been a never-ending stream of fun for the fan - but for the writer, it was an awful lot of hard work. With all those media scrums taking place almost non-stop in paddocks spanning most of the continents of the planet, we're talking thousands upon thousands of news headlines. What was hot in 2019? What was not?
