British GP 2012
Thursday, July 12
Mark Webber is a remarkable man, a tough, resilient Aussie who will never give up, and has that amazing quality to rise from the ashes, like the proverbial Phoenix. His victory in Silverstone has now put him on orbit as a top notch contender for the Championship, and wow, would that be a popular event if Webbo managed to pull that one! On the other end of the spectrum, the McLaren brigade, once a favorite, seems to have stalled in a mysterious way... Hamilton was desperately struggling, while Button was -again- nowhere. What happened?
Canada 2012 GP
Wednesday, June 13
And the seventh winner is... Lewis Hamilton!
It just had to be Lewis, I mean, no Grand Prix wins so far, for this man? Come on...
Some wins are predictable, you can feel them coming, and this was one of them.
I have often remarked how drivers have affinities for some places (race tracks)
and not with others. A sort of strange variable "luck", or rather destiny, which has
no rational explanation. Unless you believe life is ruled by chance of course; I don't.
Anyway, will there be an eighth driver in Valencia? Bets are open. But I think that
what matters is that contenders for the Championship have now showed their cards:
Hamilton, Alonso, Vettel and Webber, it will be a four way battle.
Monaco 2012 GP
Wednesday, May 30
Was Monaco a great race?
Yes, because it's Monaco, because it's like no other one, because the cars are just so close, loud, thrilling!
But no, it was not a great vintage. For two reasons.
One is that nothing really happened during the race: the top drivers on the grid finished the race in basically the same order, (oh yes, Alonso did pass Hamilton!... in the pits). Otherwise, the infamous train, led by Webber (nice to see the Aussie winning of course), just went round and round...
The other reason is that the man who took Pole position, in brilliant fashion, started the race in sixth position, thus losing any chance of winning. This bad boy, Michael Schumacher, was given Capital Monaco Punishment for a collision that happened two weeks before during the Spanish Grand Prix. Apparently, Stewards of the meeting seem to think that F1 drivers have accidents on purpose, and should be punished. F1 Kindergarten.
