 I finally have a reason to start covering F1: The fact that, this year, the new F1 rule book has evened out the playing field.

I think this will finally revive the sport that has recently been losing momentum in the motorsports community. I will admit that while Jenson Button may have better equipment than what he is used to, everyone should admit that these changes are long overdue, especially for someone who at one time in his career teamed with the great Micheal Schumacher.

Sebastien Vettel's victory in China is finally convincing me that soon Ferrari and McLaren, despite their struggles this year, will have more competition thanks to some changes made by Mr. Eckelstone (who now I kind of feel sorry for criticizing in the past). If F1 continues to even out like I think it will, it may not be long before we start talking about which is truly better: IRL or F1.
