San Marino GP & Weekend Stories

First up, those who wrote off (or even tried to write off) Ferrari and Michael Schumacher can go screw themselves :)

There are sportsmen. Then there are the greats of the sport. Then come the gods. Michael Schumacher, Sachin Tendulkar, Tiger Woods etc are without doubt, gods.

They have nothing to prove. They've excelled in their respective sport. And yet, there is this burning desire that never goes away....they keep coming back. From the dead, or otherwise. The overtaking move that Schumi pulled off on Button was simply awesome. It showed how charged up he was about not having finished anywhere close to the podium in this season. Kudos to Alonso for keeping him at bay during the last 10 laps and driving a good, defensive line. Both Schumi and Button thanked their teams for slogging it out in the time between Bahrain and Imola to give them cars that ran till the end. Ferrari and BAR are now back in the fray. Renault, watch out.

I'm pissed off with McLaren. I feel they don't deserve to have a driver like Kimi. Why? teemus, an ardent McLaren supporter gives us enough reasons here. They're just not pulling together as a top team should. They've not been doing that since Mika left. I don't know why. His last season was also a disaster and although this year seemed promising, they better get back into the fray pretty fast, or they'll be left behind.

Saturday night was fun, saw a live Bharatnatyam performance (by one of our seniors in college), an Arengetram. She's been dancing for almost 16 years now. The movements and expressions were so beautiful to watch. Most of today was spent meeting up with old friends + seniors for lunch. Good fun. Pretty energising weekend all in all.

My parents have started watching F1, thanks to me :)

Dad follows the sport quite keenly these days, mom not as much. Yesterday they were glued to the TV :D

Only difference, I was jumping they were sitting and watching :p

You know last time on f1 after the Australia GP I think, someone commented, that Kimi has done something bad in his past life. And no it was not said by an Indian, instead by an ardent Brit fan. My wife says he should shift teams, and I concur.

I don't think he can shift mid-season now. Renault/BAR won't really take him in and I don't think Ferrari will either. Don't know if he wants to be elsewhere.

2006 - High time he moves out of McLaren if they don't give him the car for his ability by end 2005.

Not only he can't, even if he says he will shift to someplace else next year and makes the announcement now, there will be hell to hear and pay;-)

Heh. How many years more?

PS : I don't care about McLaren, but Kimi deserves something way more than what he's getting.

They are a quality team and things have been going wrong for them for a very long time and i have a feeling they are finally pulling things together and who knows might just have the car to back Kimi before the season ends!

The best part of the race for me was when schumi dived past Button, and two other cars they had lapped, to go into the seconf position.

And honestly Alonso drove beautifully the last 7 - 8 laps to hold on to the first place. All in all it was a supper race!

Amen. I loved the way he overtook Button. Total classy move...

There are rumours that Ferarri is interested in Kimi for the post-Michael era (whenever that starts).

I still think that being at McLaren is Kimi's best chance to become champion. The only other team that can give him this opportunity is Ferrari, of course.

Renault? This year has been just lucky. They can't keep churning out such good cars every year. Williams and BAR are fuckall.
