2008 Season - Spain
Practice: I guess they did some practice laps.
Qualifying: Anthony Davidson celebrates his qualifying lap. Not because of his performance (20th more than 3 secs slower than 1st place) but just because they could make it there. It would be their last race. Kimi grabbed P1 just seconds before the end of Q3 after an exciting lap...or was it?. Alonso took P2, but it was not unlike the usual high qualifying positions from Webber at Melbourne or the Japanes drivers at Japan. And it would end as disappointingly. Massa got P3, followed by Kubica and Lewis.+
Race: Crowd is a blue/yellow sea. Nobody cares about Kimi. The real start is in P2 and it's showtime! The parade lap goes on and you can see the hero of the day, Nando, doing his usual drifting and sliding to warm up his tires. He is so enthusiastic! So much, in fact, that he goes off the track and almost crashes against the pits entry. Cut to Flavio shaking his head and muttering something unintelligible, although you can make the words "Alonso" and "mother****ing stronzo".
Green lights. The two Ferraris ahead of Nando by turn one while Kubica is attacked by both Maccas. Only Lewis goes trhough. Sutil collides against DC and Vettel is out of the race. No, it isn't a replay from prevous races. It is just the same thing over and over again. Piquet and Bourdais are quickly out of the race, too after colliding with each other. Then it's Heikki trying a new approach. If he can't make an impression as a driver, he will resort to pity to get at least some sympathy. After a suspension failure his left tire disintegrates and he crashes at full speed against the tire wall. It takes forever to remove the car from under the tires. The guy is fine thanks George. At the front, Alonso retires with a fried up engine. Flavio shakes his head. In the end, it's another 1-2 for the Ferraris with Lewis 3rd and a surprising P6 for Button (mostly thanks to the accidents and SCs).
As an indicator on how exciting the race was, the overtaking move of the race was Heidfeld over Fisichella's Force India. Oh, well...next stop: Istanbul!
