Over the Christmas and New Year period here on JA on F1, as well as monitoring the ongoing news sagas, like Michael Schumacher’s comeback, we will have plenty of easy-going festive content; we’ll be looking back at the 2009 season, running a short season of forward-looking pieces and a couple of public votes. So keep checking in, especially if you are snowed-in and bored!
The first vote is for the top five moments of the year. We had some great racing in 2009, some stunning passing moves and some dramatic moments both on and off the circuit.
I want you to put your top five moments of the year in one to five order, with a brief explanation of your reasons for choosing them – and I mean brief, please don’t write War and Peace..
You might have enjoyed Kamui Kobayashi battling with Jenson Button at Interlagos, Lewis Hamilton’s pole lap in Abu Dhabi, Sebastian Vettel’s pole lap in Silverstone, Giancarlo Fisichella’s battle with Kimi Raikkonen at Spa, the announcement that the British Grand Prix was staying at Silverstone – there were many great moments.
On Christmas Eve I will go in and choose the five best entries and the winners will each get a signed copy of “2009: A Revolutionary Year”, my book of the 2009 season through the eyes of posts from this blog.

The book has proved very popular, I’m delighted to say and we only have a few hundred left. It’s a limited production run so if you have been hesitating, now is the time to buy as they will be gone soon. In future years the production run will be bigger so this first edition could become quite collectable. The book is a large format paperback priced at £9-99. All copies bought through this site will be signed. Click on the link on the right to buy.
