What can I say, being the youngest Grand Prix winner, he deserves a standing ovation. Round of applause please.
I’m not actually a big fan of Hamilton. Word of mouth says he’s snobbish, but at least he proved his arrogance’s worth. Me on the other hand, have nothing at hand. Oh boy, let’s not judge others ok?
I’m a big fan of McLaren though. Having said that, I
don’t gave up on the sport ages ago. It’s so frequent, it’s no longer a privilege to watch on my good Sunday.
I remember in the old days when Hakkinen was the KGB of Formula 1. I memorized every single track, every corner, every chicane, hairpins and the ideal speed, entering and exiting corners. I could even draw you the tracks.
Thanks to Schumacher, all my tedious efforts went down the drain. He proved Ferrari and him was the perfect formula in Formula 1. Do you think it’s fun to see him win, over and over again? On some days, I had my fingers crossed hoping that he’ll slam into the tyre wall. What can I say, I’m a loser.
Since Schumacher, the FIA has been altering rules to ensure that everyone could compete equally.
Quick fact: the catering cost (they had lobster on their menu) for BMW was equivalent to Minardi’s funding on research & development.
V8 2.4 liter engine, no traction control, single tyre manufacturer, more track & cockpit models, bla bla bla, yara yara yara, Formula 1 is too ho-hum to follow. An old pervert like myself would have problem digesting these inputs.
Unfortunately, yesterday I had my eye on the sport. A very young talent, Vettel had me sunk deeper into my seat. At 21, he was pinching Hamilton, whom eventually was robbed of his fifth place.
Six more corners to go, Hamilton needed to be aggressive to secure at least a point more than Massa to clinch the world title, however he lacked pace. There’s no sign of him fighting for the spot.
Glock, who was 4th then, was overtaken by Vettel and Hamilton, a few corners before the finishing line. It ended with Vettel – 4th, Hamilton – 5th and Glock 6th.
That last 10 sec, showed what legends are made of, perfect timing and luck. Forget about the what if’s questions, Hamilton won fair and square.
Pure drama. That was the missing key to my Formula 1 addiction.
ps: Milk Coffee please!
