Well boo bloody boo hoo to them, I say. Instead of moaning and groaning they should go and attend the race; it's the cheapest ticketed venue of them all.
And if they don't want to do that, then maybe they should take themselves and their sheila off to Tasmania. And stay there.
So a quick recap on last years race, and some comments for this years.
1/ HRT only just made it. Heres hoping for a vast improvement from them this year.
2/ Grosjean crashed. Heres hoping he won't this year. (Like hoping will change anything...)
3/ Kimi looked good in his first race back. Now it's not (his first). So this means he has to win.
4/ McLaren was fast last year, book ending the podium with Jense in 1st and Lewis in third. Some German kid was second. I have a funny feeling the podium is likely to be the same. But then again, no feeling I have ever had has turned out to be true, except, that one time...in band camp...
5/ Apparantly the Ferrari was a dog last year, and no one expected them to finish anywhere near the points. Apparantly the car is 200 times better this year (on good authority from one Mr F Alonso. Not sure who he is, but he sounded authorative - he has a "Mr" infront of his name). This would then mean that by the time the rest finish on Sunday, the Ferrari cars will be crossing the line in Canada.
6/ Last year, tyres played a large part...well, they fell apart. Expect the same this year, with all the cars falling off a cliff at lap 50. I've been to Melbourne and I never saw a cliff. So either someone in the commentary box is lying, or I missed a rather large geological feature at Albert Park.
So, lets get excited people!!
Sutil is back!!
