I missed the race, see Webber had an accident. Normally his engine gives up the ghost, rare that he has an accident. What exactly happened and was it his fault? Unfortunately he's struggled over the past few races.

Webber got spun off the nose of Robert Kubica coming out of the della Roggia chicane (the second chicane) on the first lap, his car getting stuck in the gravel trap. Certainly a rare occurrence for him.

And now, BIG news concerning Renault:
Flavio Briatore, Pat Symonds out at Renault

QUOTE
Renault has announced that team boss Flavio Briatore and engineering chief Pat Symonds have parted company with the team and that it will "not dispute" the allegations of race-fixing when it appears before the World Motor Sport Council next week.

The team had been accused of asking driver Nelson Piquet to crash deliberately during last year's Singapore Grand Prix in order to cause a safety car period that would work to his team-mate Fernando Alonso's advantage. The Spaniard went on to win the race.

"The ING Renault F1 Team will not dispute the recent allegations made by the FIA concerning the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix," said a statement from the team.


The bold part is big. It looks like Renault will accept any punishment the FIA will hand out on the 20th. It looks like either Briatore, Symonds, or both came forward and spilled the beans about Singapore 2008. Whether those two voluntarily quit the team or "voluntarily" quit the team isn't know.

If the FIA comes down hard on Renault, either through a season ban or a huge monetary fine, it could usher the end of Renault's participation in F1 for the foreseeable future.

Renault given 2 year suspended ban

QUOTE
Renault has been handed a two-year suspended ban for its involvement in fixing the result of last year's Singapore Grand Prix, with Flavio Briatore and Pat Symonds receiving bans from motorsport.

Following a meeting of the FIA's World Motor Sport Council in Paris on Monday, the governing body ruled that the team was guilty of an offence of "unparalleled severity" after causing a deliberate crash in last year's Singapore event.

Although the FIA deemed that the offence was worthy of exclusion from the F1 world championship, it was decided to suspend the ban for two season because Renault admitted to its guilt - and took action against the men involved in the actions €“ former team principal Briatore and director of engineering Pat Symonds.


Renault is pretty much on probation until 2011, like how McLaren is on probation until the end of the year for lying to the stewards at Australia earlier this year.

QUOTE
The FIA has also taken tough action against Briatore and Symonds. It has been decided that for an 'unlimited period' the FIA will not sanction any event, championship, cup, trophy, challenge or series involving Briatore in any capacity €“ or grant any licence to a team or entity that is engaged with Briatore.

The statement added: "It also hereby instructs all officials present at FIA-sanctioned events not to permit Mr. Briatore access to any areas under the FIA's jurisdiction."

Briatore will also not be allowed to manage any drivers in F1, with the FIA stating that it will not renew any Superlicence granted to a driver who is associated with Briatore. At the moment Briatore manages Fernando Alonso, Mark Webber, Heikki Kovalainen, Romain Grosjean in F1.


An indefinite ban on any motorsport involvement for Flavio. His involvement in motorsports for now on will only be as a fan, and maybe only from his home.

QUOTE
Symonds faces a similar ban for a period of five years €“ and will not be allowed at FIA-sanctioned events.

The statement added: "In determining that such instructions should be effective for a period of five years the World Motor Sport Council has had regard: (i) to Mr. Symonds' acceptance that he took part in the conspiracy; and (ii) to his communication to the meeting of the World Motor Sport Council that it was to his "eternal regret and shame" that he participated in the conspiracy."


Piquet appologized to the WMSC for his involvement in the Singapore stunt, but was given immunity for his cooperation. The WMSC found that Alonso had no involvement in this mess, so no punishment for him. Renault did not get a fine out of this, so I guess that's a bit of a win for them.

FIA announces 19-race 2010 calendar

QUOTE
The FIA's World Motor Sport Council has announced a 19-race calendar for the 2010 season, confirming the return of Canada.

The governing body also confirmed South Korea will make its debut in Formula 1 next year with an October date.

Hope that the negotiations with FOM go well (unfortunately, that may mean a big $$$$$$ loss for Montreal, but that's par for the course for all of the GP races the past few years, thanks to Bernie's extortion, er, sanctioning fee dry.gif ).

EDIT: Yesh, a day after I posted this, I just now realize there STILL is no French Grand Prix. Damn dry.gif

Kubica to drive for Renault in 2010

QUOTE
Renault confirmed on Wednesday that Robert Kubica will race for the team in 2010. Kubica will replace Fernando Alonso, who is to join Ferrari next year, in the French squad’s line-up. Kubica, who currently drives for BMW Sauber, took his sole Formula One victory to date at the 2008 Canadian Grand Prix and finished last season fourth in the world championship.

"I am very happy I will be joining Renault in the 2010 season,” said the Polish driver. “I feel I have a special connection with this team because in 2005 I won the World Series by Renault. This gave me the chance to test with the team in Barcelona, which led to my debut in Formula One."

"I share with Renault a strong winning mentality and feel comfortable with their friendly and open attitude. I'm highly motivated and optimistic that together we can be at the front of the grid next year and hopefully fighting for the world title."

Renault team principal, Bob Bell, added: "We are very excited to have signed Robert with the Renault F1 Team starting next season. Ever since Robert made his Grand Prix debut in 2006, he has been on our radar as one of the most naturally talented drivers of his generation and he has delivered on that promise so it's great to have secured him in one of our cars next season. Renault has high ambitions and hopes for the future of the team and we feel that Robert can play a big role in fulfilling them."


With the uncertainty surrounding what's going to happen to BMW Sauber next year, it good to see that Kubica will have a ride, one way or another.

Glock to miss Brazil Grand Prix

QUOTE
Toyota's Timo Glock will miss the Brazil Grand Prix after suffering a cracked vertebra during qualifying for the race in Japan.

The 27-year-old German did not compete in Suzuka, but it was thought his injuries were limited to a leg wound.

However, tests revealed he also suffered a back injury in a high-speed crash in the second qualifying session.

Japanese reserve driver Kamui Kobayashi will make his F1 debut as Glock's replacement in Sunday's race.

Ladies and gentlemen, your 2009 FIA Formula One World Driver's Champion:


And your 2009 FIA Formula One World Constructor's Champion:


Jenson Button had to finish at least 11 point ahead of his nearest rival (team mate Rubens Barrichello) to claim the championship.

Brazilian Grand Prix race results:

1) Mark Webber, Red Bull-Renault
2) Robert Kubica, BMW Sauber
3) Lewis Hamilton, McLaren-Mercedes
4) Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull-Renault
5) Jenson Button, Brawn-Mercedes
6) Kimi Raikkonen, Ferrari
7) Sebastien Buemi, Toro Rosso-Ferrari
8) Rubens Barrichello, Brawn-Mercedes
9) Kamui Kobayashi, Toyota
10) Giancarlo Fisichella, Ferrari
11) Vitantonio Liuzzi, Force India-Mercedes
12) Heikki Kovalainen, McLaren-Mercedes *
13) Romain Grosjean, Renault
14) Jaime Alguersuari, Toro Rosso-Ferrari
Ret) Kazuki Nakajima, Williams-Toyota (Accident)
Ret) Nico Rosberg, Williams-Toyota (Gearbox)
Ret) Nick Heidfeld, BMW Sauber (Out of Fuel)
Ret) Adrian Sutil, Force India-Mercedes (Accident)
Ret) Jarno Trulli, Toyota (Accident)
Ret) Fernando Alonso, Renault (Accident)

* Heikki Kovalainen was given a drive through penalty (given as a 25 second time penalty as it was handed out after the race) for an unsafe pit release when his chief mechanic prematurely released Kovi when the fuel hose was still attached to the car. The hose was ripped out and spilled fuel in front of the Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen, which then ignited briefly when the fuel vapors came in contact with the exhaust. McLaren-Mercedes was also given a $50,000 fine for the unsafe pit release. Heikki originally finished 9th, but the time penalty dropped him to 12th.

Jarno Trulli was given a $10,000 fine for violating Article 151c of the FIA Sporting Code for ‘failing to leave the track as required by the marshals immediately after the incident and aggressively confronting Sutil’, per the stewards. Trulli was pushed off the road by Sutil after Mark Webber cockblocked Kimi Raikkonen in the first lap (damaging Raikkonen's front wing), causing Raikkonen to slow, which set off an accordion effect behind him. Trulli spun off, clipped Sutil (which went for a ride of it's own, taking out an innocent Fernando Alonso).

Kamui Kobayashi made his F1 debut in the Toyota subbing for Timo Glock and put in an impressive performance. Unfortunately, he kinda dampened it by knocking fellow Japanese driver Kazuki Nakajima out of the race after an over-aggressive block by Kobayashi (which he was not penalized for).

Jean Todt Elected to FIA Presidency

Jean Todt has succeeded Max Mosley as President of Formula One racing’s governing body, the FIA, after comfortably winning a vote of the FIA General Assembly in Paris on Friday. Mosley, who backed Todt’s campaign against sole opponent Ari Vatanen, had held the role since 1993.

Frenchman Todt has been involved in motorsport since 1966 and is arguably best known as the Ferrari team principal who guided Michael Schumacher to five world championships. He received 135 votes to former world rally champion Vatanen’s 49, with 12 abstentions or invalid votes, and will now serve a four-year term.
