PostSubject: 2010 Formula One season   Thu Nov 18, 2010 7:43 am

The 2010 Formula One season was the 61st Formula One season. The technical and sporting regulations applicable for the season were the subject of much debate. Before the start of the season, the 2009 Driver's Champion, Jenson Button, joined McLaren, while the 2009 Constructor's Champions, Brawn GP, was bought by Mercedes-Benz and renamed Mercedes GP. The season saw the return of the most successful driver in the sport with Michael Schumacher coming out of retirement after a three-year absence.[1] The season's first race was held on March 14 in Bahrain.
The Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) had planned to introduce a budget cap, in order to safeguard the sport during the current economic downturn. The proposal had an optional budget cap of €30 million ($45 million, £27 million), with greater technical and design freedoms allowed to teams who nominated to use it. The teams objected to what they believed would be a two-tier championship and five of the teams within the Formula One Teams Association (FOTA), Ferrari, BMW Sauber, Renault, Red Bull Racing and Toro Rosso announced their intentions to withdraw from the 2010 championship.[2][3] BMW Sauber later announced on their withdrawal from Formula One at the end of the 2009 season, due to economic problems.[4]
Following negotiations, the FOTA teams unanimously decided to withdraw at the end of the 2009 season unless the budget cap rules were changed.[5] Williams and Force India both submitted their own entries and were temporarily suspended from FOTA,[6][7] while the remaining teams submitted conditional entries for the 2010 season. The 2010 entry list was published by the FIA on 12 June, which included all 2009 teams and three new teams, Campos Meta, Virgin Racing and US F1 Team.[8] Discussions between the FIA and FOTA failed to find a resolution to the budget cap issues and the eight FOTA teams announced intentions to form a breakaway series for 2010.[9] However, following a meeting of the World Motor Sport Council on 24 June, FOTA agreed to remain in Formula One and FIA president Max Mosley confirmed he would not stand for re-election in October.[10]
