Welcome to another F1 newsletter, catching up with the news from the last few weeks, and a recap of some recent articles on the BellaOnline site.
In the news:
Rumour has it that Renault aren't happy with the look of the rear diffuser on the new cars from Williams and Toyota. They've asked for clarification from the FIA who are apparently aware of the issue.
Ron Dennis has admitted he will probably turn up to all the race weekends this year, if he can possibly help it. We already thought this would be the case, but he admits it is just because he's simply an F1 fan.
Red Bull have confirmed they will run Renault's KERS device. This makes sense as they have the Renault engine installed and the two will have to run closely side by side.
Abu Dhabi to Close 2009 Season
With the Official 2009 calendar now published, we know that Brazil has lost the season finale to be replaced by a brand new track in Abu Dhabi. Here we look at what the organisers have planned, and how development is going.
FIA Clarify 2009 Regulations
There was some confusion over the recent press release from the FIA regarding new rules for this year, and now they have spoken to Race Director Charlie Whiting to clear things up.

The FIA Presence at Grands Prix star
No one from the FIA turned up the inaugural Valencian GP, despite the much hyped anticipation. Here we look at why this might be, and what the effect of them being at a race is.
Thatīs it for this newsletter. I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!
Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
