Canadian GP

Pretty interesting race, with Button and Schumi losing out on the start. Both the Renualts looked in awesome shape until Fisichella's car developed problems with its hydraulic systems and Alonso did exactly what Karthikeyan did, overdo the braking on the turn and slam into the wall, damaging the rear tyre and suspension in the process. At this stage, it was looking like a McLaren 1-2 finish with Montoya in the lead...and then Button decided to do an Alonso-Karthikeyan on the start-finish straight.

Out comes the safety car, Monotya is the last of the front-runners to pit and in his hurry get back out misses the Red light on the pit lane :) I was jumping for joy when he was black flagged for that (Yes, I'm a Ferrari fan). Not much drama from then on, race finished with Kimi taking another victory, with Michael and Rubeno on 2 and 3. Was nice to see Flavio Briatore really pissed off after Alonso's race was over. Heh.

On an unrelated note, Spike's been having slight fever. Took him to the vet on Saturday and he's due for another visit today.

Kimi Raikonan won!!! yiiipppeeeeee!!! i was sooo happy...was praying he wouldnt have a repeat of the last race!!

But honestly this just went to show how lucky Schumi is, everyone in front of him ended up with damaged cars, coz honestly his was a very average race.

Well, he qualified 2nd, finished 2nd. Barrichello was the luckier of the two! He started from the pits and finished 3rd lol. Kimi's driving was much much smoother here than in the last race, which is why he didn't damage anything and made it through fine

McLaren fans are quite different. We are crazy about our team yet, but we love to see Ferrari lose in a fight with us. Ferrari fans on the other hand are always praying for the McLarens to fail. Really sad attitude. I've been watching F1 for six years now and EVERY Ferrari fan I've met carries that attitude. :|

and

Same difference ;)

Also, the Mclarens *do* fail. And miserably at times. Not that much prayer required :)

No, it's not the same. You know it. Stop joking on this. :|

Teams like Renault will come and go, but the McLaren-Ferrari rivalry is here to stay. You guys will always put the team before the sport.

The McLaren fans whine, agree. But they whine about their own team, not bitch about others.

Fernando, flat-spotting one's right-front tyre to cause a suspension failure isn't as embarassing as totally sliding your car's rear-end into the wall, right? *evil laughter* How does that feel, uh?

I bet you'll say you're just *not bitching* about Fernando here...

I am bitching alright. It was too good an opportunity NOT to bitch about. :)

But I bitch more about McLaren, because more often than not, it's the car that fucks up embarassingly.

Yeah, so who's to blame? Mclaren. Not me, not anyone else. They give the world so many oppurtunities to have a go at them ;)

Yeah yeah yeah yeah. Like I said, the McLaren-Ferrari rivalry will go on forever, come Renault or Williams or Toyota. It's fun.

We hate you, Ferrari Fanatics! :D
