Kubica! Yeeey!
Veldryn 15:15 And Vel found a dirty old jawbone of a walrus and put forth his hand, and took it, and in his unholy rage, he slew thirty four thousand men and children therewith.

So, the race results, for those who missed it:
Image
But it wasn't a race to remember. Nothing to tell about it, if not Massa's infantil spin.

Previous hope about a good race gone, I guess it was because there was no rain.

But 10 more days... and a race in immense heat is about to begin.

Huhh... Late again, but the results of Sakhir:
(the qualifying first)
Image
The only thing at qualifying is that Kubica won a Maiden Pole both for himself and for BMW
(the race second)
Image
The Race had no big events, but in was an average race in all. Hamilton climbed on Alonso, but seemingly no consequences. Ferrari won, and Kubica is in the first three again. No other words are needed to describe.

Funny is in overall Heidfeld is the second. :)

Hey, i don't like formula one. I tried looking at it, but after 15 minutes or something i couldn't take it. I think it's boring and overrated. But if you like it, have fun looking at it :)!

So here comes Circuit de Cataluna with the qualifying results:Image

Interesting is that Alonso catched a second place. But as isn't real, since Renault only made this edge-qualifying to satisfy the Spanish Alonso fans. Even Alonso knows that this was only a blitz-smile, and will fade at the tomorrow race.

What could be more American? It's loud. It's dangerous. It's pointless. It's a waste of fossil fuel.

If there's a Brazilian pilot (good one, and not...hum...servant of another certain German guy) in there, I might want to check this time.

There is one Brazilian pilot Panda.. the young Piquet. Though not so promising with the present Renault, it can be seen that it's the car's problem and not driver's.

And the results of the Spanish Race:

Only one event to mention. Kovalainen's big crash. But luckily it had no after effects.

Felipe Massa and Rubens Barrichello are also Brazilians. I hope Massa will do good this time. Barrichello is...well, he is sort of a joke in this country, you see. Many, many years ago, actually.

I don't know if Massa will keep up with the hopes put in him. Barrichello was almost the same for some years. Now he's a joke as you say. But I won't judge him since he still drives an F1 car, and there are only 22 people of nearly 7 billion who can tell about themselves at the moment. And he's not the worse of those 22. I would rather invest my hopes in the Nelsinho boy. He shows some skill even with a sh!t car like Renault.

If he's got the guts of his father, Nelson, I believe he might end up becoming a great pilot already. As for Barrichello, we feel like betrayed by him. He was supposed to be better, but he seemed too humble and vain, as well as too unlucky for being just coincidence...

Massa is a bet. I don't know much about him. Actually, I don't watch F1 since Ayrton Senna died in 1994. I get glimpses of it whenever I sit in front of TV on Sundays, just before changing channel to something less repetitive.

I agree that Massa is bet. We can't be sure about him. Nelsinho is a bet also, but he's a bit younger... more chance...
