I used to enjoy Eddie when he had his team, did pretty well for a small team and I think loose cannons are good for the sport.

What is the betting pool running for "how many race laps does it take Vettel to go around Raikkonen?" I want Lap 1. If I have to be more specific, I want Turn 1 Lap 1.

Looks to me like that accident was Hamilton's fault.

Seriously? Did you actually watch the replay? Vettel had tons of room on the inside and Lewis was ahead and had the inside line for the second chicane. His corner. All Vettel had to do was to back off and attack at the next corner. He had the speed. If Kimi can do it so can Seb.

Just like in Baku last year, Seb is throwing his toys out the pram.

Seb choked.

I watched the televised Indycar race at my old home track (Portland) and they never shut up either. Add to that the fact that I have NEVER liked Paul Tracy and it was pretty painful to listen to.

The more I think about it the more I see a disturbing similarity between F1 and NASCAR, both grew exponentially under the iron fisted rule of one man, Bernie and Bill France respectively. I can only hope F1 doesn't follow NASCAR's path after succumbing to rule by corporate committee.

Le Clerc to Ferrari and Kimi back to Sauber (again). Ouch, that has to hurt.

I'm wondering if Sauber may be a bit less structured than Ferrari, something Kimi would probably enjoy.
