of having not one, but two of your fellow competitors drive over you? Talk about feeling like an actual moving chicane…
Luckily no one was hurt (other than their pride)
and no, I’m not going to take this opportunity to rag on the “The Least”. (what’s this?!? a kinder, gentler Meesh??) For one, I don’t think he is to blame on this one. Yes, he has made some questionable moves in the past, but there was definitely something off about this start. (stop…start…stop…) Come to think of it, I thought A1GP did standing starts?
I’m actually wishing Marco all this best this season. (no I’m not drunk or being held under duress)
I think the kid has potential. I also think that without The Princess and all her drama milling about the paddock, Michael and the crew will be able to actually concentrate on coaching and developing the youngest Andretti spawn. I think he will learn how to drive aggressively, but cleanly over there, and I think we will see a more mature and accomplished driver return stateside for 09.
On a personal note, I stepped away from the computer and more specifically from racing for a bit after the last post. Just needed a little hiatus. I also, hopefully temporarily, no longer have cable or a dedicated internet feed, so I’m a little limited in what I can follow racing wise. (as much as Speed and TSN piss me off, it really sucks not being able to watch them)
I have managed to pick up some work (thank god!), but the feast or famine story of my life, I now haven’t had a day off since the 12th, and likely won’t see one until January.
At any rate, I’m going to make the rounds and catch up on what’s been happening and do a bit more of an update little later in the week.
