I won't be a spoiler, but what a good race..  Real racing and good passing going all the way back through the field. 

Montreal, Canada in two weeks.

Montreal this weekend..   practice and qualifying in the middle of the day rather than at 2am or some such..

I have never done any fantasy football or any other sport, but I formed a fantasy F1 team this past week.   Heck, I don't know how it works, but I have a team..

Good race in Montreal on Sunday..   My boy won, in a convincing sort-of way..

Absolutely one of the best seasons for GOOD racing with Championship drivers battling it out to the end.   


I will predict that Vettle will get in his own way again this season and be seriously penalized for it..   He is competitive but perhaps a bit too much adrenalin.    I love it that he is a wonderful driver and can compete, but he doesn't have the gentlemanly courtesy that the top F1 drivers strive to achieve.

F1 in Germany tomorrow on Fox network..

Somehow the Ferrari's got some go-power and were 2-3 behind Vettel in the Red Bull.. 

If it rains tomorrow (on the track), it will change everything, and Hamilton has a chance to pull it off..

I am voting for Webber if it is dry and Massa if it is wet.

Only two-thousandths of a second separated 1st and 2nd place today..

Voting as in rooting or predicting?

If it's the latter, you can make some serious bucks as both are long shots. Editors note: I think gambling is morally repugnant. I am just passing on info.

Actually I meant not gambling is morally repugnant.

Here is a link to the track layout in Autin, TX for our F1 track..

take a minute to look at the 3D layout, the elevation changes are a welcome change to some of the flat tracks currently being built for F1 racing (and some of the old ones)...

I am anxious..   I'd order tickets if they were available now..

So what did you F1 followers think of this last weekend race?   I just love the venue, and it is a night race.  The only one in F1..


I watched all parts and think that MS should bow out of racing, and save our respect for him.  And I think that, though I don't like his attitude, Vettel is the best driver we have seen, even from before Michael S.   I only hope that his INCREDIBLY energetic style of racing does not work against him?

I applaud Alonso for the win, I respect Vettel for keeping up with him, but what I liked about this last race was that, Robert Kubica came up from near last and got into the points.

Last race of the season..  

ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX (Yas Marina Circuit)

Who knows if Vettel will let his teamate drive past him ?

I am still hoping for a Hamilton win...    (Like I was hoping for a UGA win today)

Vettel drove away from the rest of the pack, Alonso was not in it..  Hamilton second, Button third..

Vettel is the youngest F1 world champion ever.

So rather than race the first race in the lovely city of Bahrain, F1 opted to start the season in Australia.  There is some sort of conflict in Bahrain or something.

Vettel is the driver that is running away from the pack.  He is like Shumi was in his heyday and like Hamilton was a couple years ago.  I still think that Hamilton has the "best hands" in F1 and if they switched cars could beat Vettels time but that's not going to happen.

So its off to Kuala Lumpur MALAYSIA in 2 weeks to do it again. 

I wish I could pre-buy tickets for the Texas track...  I would...

Monaco this weekend.  Not my favorite race to be sure but certainly edge-of-your-seat racing with those Very fast cars on a closed, narrow, killer road course (is that spelling correct, it looks wrong?). 

I have DVR'd the qualifying so don't tell me the results yet...

I won't be a spoiler, but the race in Canada was certainly an action packed event with most everything going on that could happen in a F1 race except a pit fire.

I hope that "we" can get Americans behind the F1 events now that in 2012 we will have our own race track in Texas.  I am on an early list of folks wanting tickets to the premier event.  I have an F1 bucket list that involves Michael, and Vettel, and even Alonso and Masa.  What a splendid race today, and because it went so long, I missed the

Hungarian Grand Prix...   It looks like Hamilton might be back in the game?

(I have NOT seen qualifying yet so don't spoil it for me)...
