February 13 2009 Motorsports Newsletter

Hi everyone,

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:

A four day test kicked off in both Jerez and Bahrain, but bad weather affected those in the desert. For two of the days, serious sandstorms meant the medical helicopter couldn't evacuate and the sessions were cancelled.

Webber returned to action, completing a full race distance, and admitting he felt fully confident about getting in the car to race in Australia.

Renault seem to have struggled at the back of the timesheets in Jerez, but this isn't necessarily representative. The worrying thing is they have cancelled their appearance at the test in Barcelona.
