And even though the F1's tires are now Pirellis instead of Bridgestones, meaning the team had to get used to a new set of shoes, driver Lewis Hamilton raced the MP4-26 to victory in the Chinese Grand Prix at the start of the season.

Damien Hirst Trek Madone 6.9 ProThe British artist designed this one-off bike as part of the Stages global art exhibition to benefit the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Hirst laid real butterfly wings along the Madone 6.9 Pro's carbon-fiber frame, both because of their uniquely iridescent qualities and because they wouldn't add any discernible WEIGHT to the 16-pound bike. Hirst repeated the motif with painted butterflies on the Bontrager Aeolus rims. Armstrong rode the bike during the final stage of the 2009 Tour de France, after which it sold at Sotheby's, raising $500,000 for the foundation's fight against cancer.
