  • With 19 Rounds it will/would be the longest season in the GP4 OC.

Pre season topics

2010 in the actual F1 championship was a year of tremendous upheval on and off track, and the OC was no different. Having 3 new teams was slightly compromised by the fact that the OC has to have 22 cars, minimum and maximum. In addition to this, Lotus under that rule had already competed in the previous season, albeit failing to score, becoming the only team ever, before or since not to score points apart from Toro Rosso in 2007. The 22 car rule also excluded HRT from the grid after they lost the vote to Virgin. Refuelling was also banned in 2010 but as you can't take it out of the game and it adds so much to the spectacle, it stayed Anyway, enough about regulations, let's talk about the runners and riders. Brawn GP had won the previous WDC and WCC comfortably but pulled out, to be replaced by uber-team Mercedes. Mercedes set a target of 2014 to win titles but until then they will be just another upper-midfield team. They will retain Alex Southgate, who missed his big break last year when a lack of consistency caused him to lose the championship to Miklos Gal. He is joined by the redoubtable German, Felix Sonntag. Sonntag has enjoyed a successful career, driving for the likes of McLaren and Ferrari. despite some people's mutterings that he is past his best, he rounded 2009 off with a fantastic victory in the rain at Interlagos, and gave the most successful OC driver so far, Joseph Willows, a fright. So, who are actually the favourites then? Well, for the next 3 seasons, Red Bull Racing, McLaren and Ferrari will have that honour. Florian Volker, however is the mooted new super-talent. He offered a stern challenge to the mighty Brawns last year, with impressive victories in Monaco and Hungary, and should have had another in Turkey. However, there are still chinks in his armour to be exploited, and that is where the 5 other main threats come in. James Willows( brother of Joe) won handsomely at Silverstone and Suzuka, two of the last real drivers tracks on the calendar. He has been in the Red Bull team since 2008 and knows more than anyone how it works. Down at Maranello, they are still wondering they let 3 possible titles slip through their fingers in 06, 07 and 08. This year, like Red Bull, they are keeping some much needed stability after tumultuous years with Sonntag and Bruno Junqueira. Ferrari stalwart and perennial 'unlucky man' of the OC- Will Neller. Hungry for a title, he shouldn't be making the errors that his younger, more inexperienced rivals will. He is joined by the talented Belgian Wais Kuba. Since being picked up has a prodigy after a successful year with Renault in 2008, he had a challenging 2009. In a difficult car in a season punctuated with crashes, he was dominating Valencia when he threw it in the wall. He is no longer one of the young rookies and needs to show it. Finally, at regular champs McLaren, they have possibly the most exciting driver line up ever. The previous two champions. The two Mr Consistency's. Joseph Willows and Miklos Gal. Willows and Neller's battles for championships are the stuff of legend. And with new recruit Gal set to add impetus, McLaren are certainly gunning for an extraordinary fourth title in five years- when in actual F1 they only won 1 of those titles. Elsewhere, there is plenty of other interest. Renault are looking to threaten Mercedes for 4th in the Constructors championship, and with proven race winner Jay McKenzie and underrated Irishman Evan Byrne they have the tools to do just that. Meanwhile, the midfield scrap, looks set to become just as entertaining, with Force India, Sauber and Williams and occasionally Toro Rosso all duelling. Force India are fresh from an inconsistent 2009 campaign, in which they experienced the highs of winning at Spa and taking 2nd and 3rd on the grid in Italy to having many more mediocre, at times even back marking performances. This year, though, with retained bad luck lackey Roland Motyan and race winner and BMW refugee George Roke, they should be more consistent. Speaking of BMW refugees, however, does lead us onto Sauber, picking up the rubble from the financial crisis induced exit. With Viggo Holst and Finlay Strachan both joining after being dumped by the social climbers at Renault, they should be ready for the mid-grid war. As indeed, so should the great British war horses at Williams. After a quite frankly dreadfully disappointing 2009 even by recent Williams standards, they need to regain some dignity back by claiming that all important 6th place in the WCC. They should really have the pace to do so. Their driver line up consists of the architect of that incredible Spa 09 Force India win, Sam Thompson, and solid returnee Adam Wolf. Meanwhile, Red Bulls breeding ground, Toro Rosso need a miracle to rise above 9th and a horrendous disaster for them to finish 10th. After a disappointing 2009 which only yielded 1 point, courtesy of the slightly maniacal car wrecker Victor Ibobo( who has now disappeared to the new DTM series This year, they have promising Romanian Robert Ionescu, who debuted well at Canada last year in an uncooperative Renault (before being barged off by Jo.Willows) and young British hopeful Armar Cah, who drove for the 2nd half of last year. Finally, there are last years rear enders Lotus, who have retained the at times overly aggressive Michael Mocho and GP2 talent Romain Quag, and Toyota replacement Virgin, who are the slowest team on the grid. However, they have pulled off a coup by luring former Renault race winner Kellin Bryce back to the sport. It remains to be seen how he will do after a 2 full seasons away against last year Lotus driver Jordan Mathurin. However, this season is really all about the delicious prospect of a Volker, Neller and Willows duel- and the small prospect of their 'co-operative' teammates. Roll on 2010!
