Later today we should have the results of the fourth round of the F1 Fanatic Predictions Championship. Stay tuned to find out who are latest prize-winners are.
Here’s today’s round-up:
“Hamilton?óÔé¼Ôäós bravado and extraordinary success in two seasons that saw him win a world title at the tender age of 23 was enough, many believed, to humble the defending champion. But that is not how it has proved and Hamilton is looking up the 2010 world championship table at the leader, Button, who has already chalked up two wins in four races, including an epic effort at the Chinese Grand Prix.”
?óÔé¼?ôWhen I?óÔé¼Ôäóm not racing I?óÔé¼Ôäóm at McLaren training twice a day, six days a week, or at the factory. I?óÔé¼Ôäóve been working with the simulator team as I am the only driver with an engineering degree.?óÔé¼?Ø
Twice world champion? Erm, no.
Comment of the day
Steph’s dead right about Alonso’s move on Massa if you ask me:
Am I missing something? I really don?óÔé¼Ôäót see what the problem was with Alonso?óÔé¼Ôäós move.
Felipe went to the pits and as soon as he was en route, he thought he was safe which allowed Fernando to pull out the ballsy – and a little bit rude – move. If it had ended in a crash then he would have looked stupid but Felipe was very fair.
Felipe will be upset but he should be upset just at how it impacted his race because it wasn?óÔé¼Ôäót an illegal move. Just my opinion though.
Fernando needed to get ahead. If he had been delayed in the pits he would have had to put in all the hard work all over again and possibly, in the latter stages, ended up stuck behind Felipe. After his start it was do or die for him and he had to recover.
It wasn?óÔé¼Ôäót illegal, it was ballsy and if Felipe didn?óÔé¼Ôäót like it he shouldn?óÔé¼Ôäót have been caught napping, if the FIA or anyone has a problem then maybe the rules should have been looked at but fair play to Alonso and it added a bit of excitement. As long as it?óÔé¼Ôäós fair and legal I?óÔé¼Ôäóm fine, I don?óÔé¼Ôäót want a parade after all and these two should be allowed to race it?óÔé¼Ôäós just Fernando was more clever and quicker yesterday.
Happy birthday to Jacob!
On this day in F1
Michael Schumacher won the San Marino Grand Prix at Imola on this day in 2003. But the result brought no joy for him or brother Ralf, who he had shared the front row of the grid with and who had finished fourth, for their mother Elizabeth had died the night before.
