2010 Lotus T127

With the unveiling of the long awated lotus T127 with its beautiful classic Lotus Racing livery, the 2010 formula One grid began to show up with already 22 cars ready to go in Bahrain. This is surely one of the most anticipated Formula One seasons since 2000. With a mixture of young talents and old veterans as well as four new teams and a returning seven times world champion willing to take the the crown again, it is going to be a very interesting battle.

After seing the Brawn GP team come out from the ashes of the former Honda F1 team to make the surprise and take both crowns in 2009, this year we have more favourites than any other season in modern F1.

It is also believed that banning refueling will make races more exciting and will allow more actual overtaking on the track. So now we have fuel tanks that can carry up to 250 liters. This lead to a slightly different design of the cars especially when it comes to the wheel base which is now a little bit longer.

No more talking, now let's have a look at the 2010 championship contenders!
