The BBC have confirmed that their opening theme, which included Fleetwood Mac’s The Chain will return in 2009! Formula One fans across the Internet have passionately campaigned to bring back the theme which reminds us all of the good old days of motor racing. Here it is again just to remind you.
In fact several fans on You Tube have gone as far as producing their own intros to the 2009 Season, some with remarkably high quality. Here is one of my favourites
In other Formula one news today The FIA have announced a rule change whereby the winner of the championship will be the driver with the most race wins. If this had been the case in 2008 Lewis Hamilton would not have won. The exact wording of the rules are as follows.
The WMSC accepted the proposal from Formula One Management to award the drivers’ championship to the driver who has won the most races during the season. If two or more drivers finish the season with the same number of wins, the title will be awarded to the driver with the most points, the allocation of points being based on the current 10, 8, 6 etc. system.
The rest of the standings, from second to last place, will be decided by the current points system. There is no provision to award medals for first, second or third place. The Constructors’ Championship is unaffected.
