Here we go kids!
First on track, Seabass!
Now that he is no longer whining in our defunct series, I do believe I will root for him.
I do have to wonder if he will have a bit of an advantage over the F1 regulars as he has been driving without traction control while these boys have been all about the electronics. (unless of course the NHL traction control rumours were true, then he is fucked… LOL)
He looks racy. Not the usual “smooth” Seabass we are used to, but he is showing way more car control than others. *cough* Glock *cough*
End of Q1 session edit:
Well, that was exciting. No really! For the first time, it’s exciting! They’re driving like wild men out there! There is a real sense of on the edge. Unfortch Bourdais got bumped off the bubble by Button. (hehe… sorry couldn’t resist the alliteration there) So, back of the grid for the boy from LeMans.
Lots of spinning and messy messy driving, and an apparent transmission problem that had the Ferrari boys staring at each other and scratching their heads as they went to commercial.
Q2: cars on track!
But not Kimi “if it weren’t for bad luck I’d have no luck at all” Raikkonen. It was determined that technically he stopped “on course” so he is out of qualies. He will start 16th. Ouch.
Speaking of bad luck. Webber out in a puff of black smoke. (brake dust?) Red flag.
End of Q2 edit:
Hamilton lays down the gauntlet…
Vettel is winning the battle of the Sebastien’s by a HUGE margin.
End of Q3 edit:
LOL… I was so busy watching I didn’t write anything down! Hamilton squeaks out the pole on the last lap, bumping the very fast Kubica. (that pole would have been his cept for the off roading! oops!)
Damn, I’ve forgotten how hard some of these guys are to understand!
I’m excited about the race and the season. I don’t know if it’s because I’m just desperate for some racing or if it’s genuinely more interesting… I guess tomorrow night will be the test.
Bwahahaha! on a complete side note… what a fucking jarring change going from the dulcet, classy tones of the F1 broadcasters to the goobers on Trackside! Damn… where’s the remote!!!
