Ah yes - F1 time again....

As I happen to be the son of one of the people who fought against the Fascists in London's east end in the pre world war two days (My dad took part in the "Battle of Brick Lane" against the Fascists in the 1930's) and (I hope) drew the blood of Max Mosley's father, I have to say that the fun of the sport has faded a bit.

For those who don't know, Max Mosley is the son of Oswald Mosley who was the president of the British Union of Fascists (Oswald Mosley) in the decade before and during the World War two years. Oswald Mosley broadcasted from Hitler's Germany more propaganda (lies from the back end of a cow) than you want to think even existed....

Now, I am SURE that Max does not agree with his fathers political stand - of course not - and the fact that he has worked for the BuF/NF as a staffer has nothing to do with his ability to run the FIA.....

It just seems to me (I am biased after all) that all this is a bit like saying... "Mr. BinLaden, here now - YOU can have the keys to the white house AND there is no problem with you having all the explosives you like, while you walk in there."

As I say, it all takes the shine off an otherwise fabulous sport.

Wow much info there room

he must be overjoyed that Hamilton is world champ then eh

ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE THAT WAIT AND THOSE THAT PUT IN THE WORK

Not sure i will be put off by what the mosleys have done in there past sometimes forgiveness counts, being a Scot i would get no where in life if i was to constantly remember how the English drove my people from their homes raped our women and murdered our children but i have only love in my heart no hate, the only thing i want to see is Hamilton winning every race this year

We all have s@@t in our past that we are not proud of some people chaange so i will give Mr mosly another chance as he is no longer a member of the NF or the BNP and as for his father well we all have family member that we would rather forget about sometimes


Anyhoooo roll on another year hope it's a good one and your right bro it has lost it's excitment however i think it will be brought back this year as the driver with the most wins and not points will be crowned chapion

Jenson Button has completed his amazing resurgence by winning the Australian Grand Prix, the opening race of the 2009 Formula One season.

The Englishman, whose F1 career was in the balance following Honda's withdrawal from the sport late last year, led home team-mate Rubens Barrichello in Melbourne as the new Brawn GP team celebrated a one-two finish in their first race.

Starting from the pitlane at Albert Park, Toyota's Jarno Trulli finished third on the road, while, starting 18th, World Champion Lewis Hamilton came home fourth.

However, Hamilton was later promoted to third after the Italian received a 25-second penalty for illegally overtaking the McLaren Mercedes driver late in the race.

With Trulli demoted to 12th, team-mate Timo Glock finished fourth, ahead of Renault's Fernando Alonso and Williams driver Nico Rosberg, while Toro Rosso's Sebastien Buemi led home team-mate Sebastien Bourdais to claim two Championship points on his debut.

Button's victory was the second of a career now entering its 10th season and also the first time since Jody Scheckter won the 1977 Argentine Grand Prix for Wolf that a team has triumphed in its debut race.

The last time a new team captured the top two places was when the legendary Juan Manuel Fangio led home Karl Kling for Mercedes in the 1954 French Grand Prix.

Starting from pole position, Button led from start to finish, although he was placed under pressure in the closing stages from Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel and BMW Sauber's Robert Kubica.

However, the latter pair both retired after colliding with just three laps remaining, allowing Barrichello into second place behind his team-mate.

The Brazilian had a rather more eventful race than Button - who streaked away at the lights while Barrichello, starting second, almost stalled.

Melee
He fell to seventh place at the first corner as a result and also damaged his front wing after colliding with both Red Bull's Mark Webber and BMW Sauber's Nick Heidfeld.

McLaren's Heikki Kovalainen joined the melee and retired as a result, with Webber needing a new front wing and Heidfeld suffering a puncture.

Meanwhile, Button quickly built a four-second lead over Vettel, Ferrari's Felipe Massa, Kubica, Kimi Raikkonen and Rosberg.

The pace of Brawn GP's car was emphasised by the fact that both Button and Barrichello qualified heavy on fuel, meaning the race leader pitted later than his main rivals.

Button's stop came just after Kazuki Nakajima had crashed his Williams on lap 18, bringing out the safety car.

His advantage over Vettel - who had stopped two laps earlier - was therefore wiped out.

However, he quickly pulled away once more after the safety car peeled in on lap 24 and was over five seconds clear nine laps later.

Meantime, after making his opening stop on lap 12, Hamilton had climbed into the points by lap 33 and up to fifth before his second stop on lap 43.

He rejoined 10th ahead of Massa - the reasonably strong start Ferrari had made to the race about to come undone.

Raikkonen fell to 16th after spinning on lap 45 and clipping a wall - the Finn retiring late on - while Massa retired one lap later.

Lap 46 saw race leader Button make what seemed a slow final stop. Nevertheless he rejoined just over a second clear of Vettel.

Barrichello was by now third ahead of Kubica but pitted with seven laps left. He rejoined fifth behind Rosberg and passed him one lap later.

The Williams was struggling for grip in the closing laps - Trulli passing Rosberg for fifth on lap 54, with Hamilton getting past soon after before also taking the Toyota.

With four laps remaining, Button led Vettel by 2.5s with Kubica a further 1.3s behind.


Late bid
The Pole made his bid for second place at turn two on lap 55 but, attempting to pass around the outside, he and Vettel collided.

The German promptly spun and hit the wall while, with his front wing missing, Kubica did the same three corners later.

Vettel then tried to reach the pits on three wheels, a decision which has cost him a 10-place grid penalty for next weekend's Malaysian Grand Prix.

As Trulli passed Hamilton under yellow flags - the manoeuvre for which he was penalised - the safety car came out for a second time, before peeling away at the final corner to allow Button to cruise to the chequered flag.

However, the result remains subject to an FIA Court of Appeal ruling on April 14 following a protest lodged by Ferrari, Renault and Red Bull earlier in the week.

The trio of teams appealed against a stewards' decision in deeming the cars of Brawn GP, Toyota and Williams legal in relation to their rear diffusers.
