Which Further Proves My Theory…

The 2009 Formula 1 season begins the weekend of March 27th, and I couldn’t think of a better birthday present for me. Remind me to send Bernie a ham.

Last year was a fantastic season, rich with drama and action, and this year should be just as exciting. Many new rules have been implemented, like mandatory lifespan extensions for the engines, a return of slick tires, and radically new changes to the cars.

One of the more intriguing developments for ’09 is the KERS system that will store kinetic energy in a battery for a limited boost in horsepower when activated by the driver.

The following video, featuring BMW driver and Australopithecus Nick Heidfeld, demonstrates that activating KERS can’t be explained to German people without the use of David Hasselhoff.

Here’s an informative rundown of the changes being made for 2009.
