Fresh news:
Hamilton and whole McLaren team got excluded from Aussie GP :D. That happened cuz he still suck tha ballz. Ok now srsly:
“The Stewards having considered the new elements presented to them from the 2009 Australian Formula One Grand Prix, consider that driver No 1 Lewis Hamilton and the competitor Vodafone McLaren Mercedes acted in a manner prejudicial to the conduct of the event by providing evidence deliberately misleading to the Stewards at the hearing on Sunday 29th March 2009, a breach of Article 151c of the International Sporting Code.
In addition to Hamilton’s disqualification, Trulli’s penalty has been withdrawn and the Italian therefore regains his third place - and six points.

So as you can see, today qualifications were very interesting (if not exciting). Again Brawn GP at 1st place. I'm a bit disappointed about other driver, Heidfeld has some nice laps but Alonso beat him down at Q2, Massa had some unknown problem, and F1 newbe, Buemi have run out the track.
Qualificatins are getting same interesting as races are :p

PS. It's hard to rewrite this results, so I will just paste screen shots from The Official Formula 1 Website

watched this in the gym this morning... looked like Raikonnen was sort of trying today... cant say the same for massa, they're letting the side down those two drivers. kubica should also be in 16th place tbh

I'm glad Buttons on pole again but Trulli had a very good performance today too. I think Button will be challenged a lot more in this race with the two Toyotas behind him from the start.

i've got to say, ive never been a fan of F1, but I was glued to the screen today lol

It's so refreshing to see the underdogs doing well, + people who genuinly are happy to be in 1st 2nd + 3rd

I also loved Hamilton's face when he was being interviewed..... "7th?? i was 5th wasnt I ?????" lmfao

so glad he is doing badly... smug barstool

what a shame for Kovalainen and Kubica :(
However that was one of the best (or most exciting) GP in last few years. Everything in this GP made me WTF?!, and Raikonnen eating Magnum was the king of the GP :D

The Brawn diffuser (and Toyota and Williams) is officially legal. Other team engineers will have some big days to follow !
I think big team will go faster in Europe....
