We're already so close to another season, I can hardly believe it! Last year had it's moments, but after the nail biting, edge of your seat action that was the 2010 season, it was a bit of a snooze. I hope all top 3 teams are strong enough to win next year, if Mercedes push really hard maybe they'll be able to achieve the odd podium as well. I'm getting excited. Can't wait. :-)

Andy, there is significant rule changes for the clutch and it’s mode of use for this year. Normally the cause of such changes are some getting out of the rules or stretching things too far. New rules for clutch control, The amount by which the clutch engaged must be controlled only, solely and directly by the driver. When and if the driver release the clutch peddle the clutch must return fully home within 50 mille seconds. When moving off first gear is used, second gear can only be engaged when the speed is no less than 100kpa. All this seems to be because some were using pre programmed electronics to control clutch engagement and all the driver had to do was let go of the clutch peddle.
