FIA revises final 2009 entry list

The FIA has revised the Formula 1 entry list once again after Force India pushed to get its old race numbers back

FIA revises final 2009 entry list

Motor racing's governing body had issued a revised entry list last week because of Brawn GP becoming a new team, and designated Force India with Honda Racing's old 18 and 19 numbers, and Brawn GP getting 20 and 21.

However, Force India wanted to get its former 20 and 21 numbers back because all its pre-season promotional material and merchandise had been based around them.

With Brawn GP not objecting to sacrificing those numbers, Force India now has 20/21, while Brawn GP will get 22 and 23. There will be no car numbers 18 and 19.

The full entry list is:

1 Lewis HAMILTON (GB) VODAFONE McLAREN MERCEDES McLAREN MERCEDES 2 Heikki KOVALAINEN (FIN) VODAFONE McLAREN MERCEDES McLAREN MERCEDES 3 Felipe MASSA (BRA) SCUDERIA FERRARI MARLBORO FERRARI 4 Kimi RÄIKKÖNEN (FIN) SCUDERIA FERRARI MARLBORO FERRARI 5 Robert KUBICA (PL) BMW SAUBER F1 TEAM BMW SAUBER 6 Nick HEIDFELD (D) BMW SAUBER F1 TEAM BMW SAUBER 7 Fernando ALONSO (E) ING RENAULT F1 TEAM RENAULT 8 Nelson PIQUET (BR) ING RENAULT F1 TEAM RENAULT 9 Jarno TRULLI (I) PANASONIC TOYOTA RACING TOYOTA 10 Timo GLOCK (D) PANASONIC TOYOTA RACING TOYOTA 11 Sébastien BOURDAIS (F) SCUDERIA TORO ROSSO STR FERRARI 12 Sébastien BUEMI (CH) SCUDERIA TORO ROSSO STR FERRARI 14 Mark WEBBER (AUS) RED BULL RACING RBR RENAULT 15 Sebastian VETTEL (D) RED BULL RACING RBR RENAULT 16 Nico ROSBERG (D) AT&T WILLIAMS WILLIAMS TOYOTA 17 Kazuki NAKAJIMA (J) AT&T WILLIAMS WILLIAMS TOYOTA 20 Adrian SUTIL (D) FORCE INDIA F1 TEAM FORCE INDIA MERCEDES 21 Giancarlo FISICHELLA (I) FORCE INDIA F1 TEAM FORCE INDIA MERCEDES 22 Jenson BUTTON (GB) BRAWN GP FORMULA ONE TEAM BRAWN MERCEDES 23 Rubens BARRICHELLO (BR) BRAWN GP FORMULA ONE TEAM BRAWN MERCEDES
