The December 2009 issue of F1 Racing is on sale in Australia today, and although we’re in the grips of the off-season news slow-down, it’s full of features and great stories, which include:

  • Lewis opens up – No dodging tough questions. No PR publicocrap. And, as you’ll find out, no bullshit. Honest, feisty, reflective: this is Lewis Hamilton as you’ve never heard him before…
  • Readers’ questions to Sebastien Vettel – Seb answers some great reader questions, including those about his collision with (now) team-mate Mark Webber at the 2007 Japanese GP, and why his cars are named the way they are…
  • Robert Kubica interview – A frank assessment of why he and BMW never clicked and why he’s looking forward to Renault in 2010 (that is, if you choose to ignore those rumours that they’re trying to bail out of F1!)…
  • Inside Jenson Button’s title journey – Edward Gorman, F1 correspondent for The Times, gets the inside line on Jenson Button’s roller coaster ride to the F1 world championship…
  • From oblivion to triumph: The year of Brawn – If you think you know it all already, then try this: the unheard story of Brawn’s incredible season as told by team insiders…
  • Rob Smedley interview – Felipe Massa’s hard-working engineer on his protégé’s horrific accident, and trying to eke speed out of Luca Badoer and Giancarlo Fisichella…
  • Sacre bleu – Jean-Pierre Jabouille and Jacques Laffite have been close mates since their teens (not to mention, brothers-in-law for a bit too). F1 Racing went to Paris to share several glasses of wine with these F1 legends…
  • The American Dream – A less-than-flattering, albeit objective, history of the American teams who’ve tried and (largely) failed in their ambitions for F1 glory. What will be the fate of USF1?

PLUS…

  • Is controversy good for F1?
  • A day in the life of the F1 scrutineers
  • What happens on a track walk?
  • What happened to Sakon Yamamoto?
  • Wise words from Martin Brundle
