F1 to 2015 at Albert Park

Victorian Premier John Brumby announced that Melbourne's Formula 1 Grand Prix contract has been extended to 2015 without the need for night time racing.

The races will however start at 5 pm local time which is not that bad because that means that maximum the race can finish will be 7 pm although I expect most races to finish just before 6.30 pm if there are no major incidents on the track.

In March it looked like we had lost the race and everything seemed to be pointing to a race away from Albert Park but its good to see that the State Government has managed to secure the rights to the Australian leg of the grand prix without the need for night racing which we will witness in Singapore in September.

Meanwhile we will not be seeing David Coulthard again at Albert Park after he announced that he will retire from F1 racing at the end of the year.

With Mark Webber extending his contract with Red Bull Racing, it means he will have a new team-mate next season.

There has been some consistency in Webber's driving this season as he continues to pick point after point and now he has 18 points and that has helped him extend his contract.
