Singapore 2013 GP
Monday, September 23
The Singapore night race is unique, yes, but the race itself was not exactly exciting... Some will say that it was all Sebastian Vettel's fault, his domination unmerciful. But... Seb's domination was so absolute, his race craft so precise and masterful, that you have to say: respect. The crowd once again didn't think so, and was booing Vettel on the podium. Not nice. Vettel's comment: "They're on tour, they go around on a bus.". Not bad German humor... On a side note, Mark Webber's 10 place grid penalty for the next race, for hitchhiking his way back with Alonso after his car broke down on the last lap, really doesn't give Formula 1 a good image, and will not attract any new fans... (understatement). Perception is everything, and those responsible for this sad decision should really do a bit of soul searching. My advice.
Italy 2013 GP
Wednesday, September 11
Monza has in the past been the theater of many remarkable turns of events, but this edition of the Italian Grand Prix only confirmed what everyone feared: Sebastian Vettel is on his way to a fourth consecutive title, and his latest victory in the glorious Temple of Speed was one more nail in the coffin of his opponents' hopes and dreams. Time passes, seasons pass, and It's become fairly obvious that the recipee for success in F1is: Red Bull unlimited funds + Adrian Newey + the best joystick driver of this generation, Seb Vetel. With Kimi Raikkonen having now signed with Ferrari for next season, Fernando Alonso's future has taken a turn for the worse going into 2014: he will continue having a virtually unbeatable adversary outside, plus a formidable foe inside, his own team mate... Buena suerte Nando!
Hungary 2013 GP
Friday, August 02
In the scorching Hungarian heat, Lewis Hamilton finally earned a long overdue first victory for Mercedes, and dit so in his usual brilliant style. Maybe he's finally found the strength to pull himself together and get over his never ending romantic saga? (finally...) On another note, it seems the truth is staring at the face of Alonso: after four years at Ferrari, he once again will not be World Champion this year, and Nando is now getting pissed off. There are only two solutions for the Scuderia: to clone Adrian Newey, or to get Bridgestone back!
