13 Sept 09 - Monza

Let's hear it. I'm watching practice now. Fisico replaces "Look-How Bad-You-Are" in the Ferarri. Brawn may get official Mercedes support next year...more to come.

It was awesome seeing Barrichello win in Valencia!


Badoer was not very impressive last race.

Haven't watched practice yet, just got home. Just found out I get Speed in HD as of... I dunno, but recently, so it should kick ass.

Can't wait to see what Monza holds, this season, overall, has been a real blast to watch.

Well because of my nationality it's obvious whom i support. But i've always liked Fisi, he's a class act. And it would be VERY cool to see him achieve great success after such a long career.

Another outstanding qualifying session. Force India with Sutil takes 2nd at the start tomorrow - awesome.

I don't necessarily think the same way about Fisi as some of you, I wouldn't call him a "class act" because of his decision to go to Ferrari. I don't think worse of him because of it, either. I do, however, find it ironic that both of the Force India cars qualified better than he did in the Ferrari.

Damn, what a hell of a race, again. Force India (Sutil this time) hanging in there with Ferrari, lap after lap. Liuzzi made an outstanding qualification run, too bad about the gearbox.

And my man Rubens won again. It'll be a close competition over the next 4 races for the championship.

Mercedes engines really are the stars of this year, with the notable exception of McLaren. Disappointing race, again, for them.

Singapore, here we come.

I would love to see Rubens take the title this year. Nothing against Button, But rubens, in my opinion, is the closest thing we have today of the drivers of old. Same reason I'm pulling for Mark Martin in the chase for the Nascar title. I love it when the old guys show the younguns how it's really done.

I've always liked him as well. This season has conclusively shown what a genius Ross Brawn is.

Yeah, I like Ruebens too, but I don't want to see Button commit suicide It's already known that Ferarri has stopped development on this years car in favor of next...so Raikkonen's finishes are nice. Singapore doesn't suit the McClaren, but we'll see what that Wheaties Force India will do...who'da thunk it. Fisi just needs to get used to the car.

Way to go Ruebens!

How about Ham choking on the last lap?

The force is strong with Brawn.

Singapore, tomorrow. Getting ready to watch qualifying - recorded earlier today.

This has been a good week - first time flying a Blackhawk, the AFL Grand Final last night - which was great, and now the Singapore Grand Prix.

Fricken Vettel! I was looking forward to him stuffing Hamilton. My guys were horrible, but Alonso (Witness X in Piquetgate?) was flying. He'll be in red next year, Bravo, bravo, bravo!

He will. Even though i'm a finn, i can't blame Ferrari for getting rid of Raikkonen. Though i DO blame Ferrari for intending to keep Massa. It's not like he's been very impressive. Ferrari should change BOTH drivers.

Hey, I love Finns (Esa Tikkanen '94 NY Rangers, Jari Kurri, etc)...Kimi just gets unmotivated too easily. Disagree about Masa though...class act and lost by 1 point last year with a few DNFs to boot.

YESSSSSSSSSS! The 2010 season has started. Bahrain practise is on now. Michael Schumacher (7 time WDC and highest paid athlete of all time) comes out of retirement. If you've never watched F1, watch it this year. I've got to pick Alonso, but if he's out early, I'm going back to my old fav, Schumi (and before I hear about band wagons, I picked him in '94 at Benetton...before WDC title #1 ).
