April 9 2009 Motorsports Newsletter

Hi everyone,

Firstly, apologies for not sending out a newsletter in the past few weeks. As soon as the F1 season started, my whole schedule went wrong! However, things are back to normal now, so I am sending this newsletter one day early, as a special treat. Without further ado, here it is:

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.

Hitting headlines this week:

Teams aren't happy with how the Malaysian GP ended, although they are convinced that stopping was the right thing to do given the conditions. Organisers are going to look into moving the start time again, but convincing Bernie is going to be another matter.

Raikkonen has spoken out about the rear diffuser issue and thinks the results of the hearing next week will shape the season ahead, and quite possibly decide which way the championship will go.

The real story, of course, is Brawn GP. Even with the rear diffuser taken into account, they are exceptionally fast, and have dominated both races so far.
