Christmas has been and gone, and that means our advent calendar season review has drawn to a close. We featured 25 short shows covering the entire year, as a wrap up to the 2009 season. The Advent concept was designed as an extended mini-series, and in normal circumstances, there would be an omnibus edition for those who would rather listen to the shows in one sitting. Given that there were 25 shows, that they are roughly three minutes each, and that Mr C faints at the sight of a podcast over an hour in length, that is impossible to do for this series.

However, there is still scope for rounding up everything we covered, in an easy-to-view list.

  1. The Brawn surprise - Pre-season Brawn testing raised eyebrows.
  2. A key admission - Vettel and Kubica collide in Australia.
  3. Truth in kind - Lewis Hamilton falls foul of the stewards.
  4. Back to front - The double diffusers cause controversy.
  5. Rain stops play - The Malaysian GP is a little bit wet.
  6. Running on empty - Massa almost runs dry in Spain.
  7. Keep on running - Button enjoys a jog around Monaco.
  8. Two tribes - The FIA and FOTA square up to avoid a breakway.
  9. The first time - Webber takes his maiden win despite penalties.
  10. So long, farewell - Toro Rosso bid goodbye to their French Seb.
  11. Accidents happen - Massa recovers from a huge crash in Hungary.
  12. In the dark - Timing chaos descends on Hungarian qualifying.
  13. Back on form - Hamilton turns McLaren's fortunes around.
  14. Not quite banned - Renault narrowly escape a ban following a loose wheel.
  15. Take my place - The campaign for the FIA Presidency gets dirty.
  16. Goodbye from us - BMW leave and the team faced an uncertain future.
  17. Spin me round - Piquet Sr and Jr cause problems for Renault.
  18. Out of practice - Luca Badoer steps in to deputise for the injured Massa.
  19. It's about time - Barrichello finally finds his way back to the top step of the podium.
  20. Rise and fall - Fisichella takes Force India's first points with a podium finish.
  21. Crossing the line - Rosberg messes up in Singapore, compounding a miserable year.
  22. Injury time - Glock takes a time out, whilst Kobayashi steps in.
  23. While you wait - The Brazilian qualifying turns into the longest session ever.
  24. Fight or flight - Trulli wages war against Sutil with evidence to back him up.
  25. Doing the double - The Championships are decided and the season draws to a close.

Thank you for sharing the season with me, it's been great fun whittling down the important points of the year for an end-of-season review. Let's hope 2010 provides just as much interest, although hopefully more of it on the track!
