Once again Melbourne is the first race of the 2009 Formula 1 season. Moreover it's back on the BBC. Let's hope they don't balls it up. Martin Brundle is there at least, so I hope they have the the good sense to take his vast experience into account. No doubt, he's being paid enough.
With all the usual internal politics well underway and dominating the headlines, let's hope, at least, we have a good first race. Are you getting excited yet?
