We talked earlier in the year that the F1 drivers were upset by the cost of their super licences for drivers and this led to problems ahead of the start of the 2009 season. Hopefully this has now been resolved. Both the FIA and the Grand Prix Drivers Association (GPDA) have now agreed to a proposal to be made to the World Motor Sport Council to revise the super licence fees for drivers in the 2010 championship.

Lewis Hamilton (Last year’s World Champion) has also finally decided to join the GDPA after previously resisting calls to do so.
