Another disappointing weekend for Ferrari :-(
Schumi banged into the back of DC's car and lost his front wing. I think that pit stop cost him some positions.
The car is improving, but still Ferrari have a long way to go to compete for the podium positions. I think Ferrari didnt plan accordingly this year for the new rule changes. The same thing happened in 2003. But luckily in 2003, the opposition werent this strong!
All said and done, Schumi did drive a wonderful race under the circumstances. He Jean and Ross have tasted success for too long, that they will never be contempt with whats happening now. I expect Ferrari to be stronger after the next 2 races! Lets see.
Having said that, yesterdays race @ Monaco was one of the best races I have seen in quite sometime. Not only wheel to wheel racing, but also damn hilarious. I dont remember the last time, when I was laughing whilst watching the race!
First things first. McLaren had a very good car and Kimi drove it very well. This guy is damn good. Everytime I see him drive a car, it reminds me of a knife cutting through butter. So damn sleek. This is the difference a great driver can do to a good car. The one time wonder Montoya also hasthe same machinery. But where is he? I wonder if Ron Dennis made a mistake by signing up Montoya?
I loved the way Villeneuve and Massa fighting for positions. he he. I think Villeneuve has realised that he will be kicked out at the end!
But the best part of the race was the fight between Webber and Alonso. It was damn hilarious and I couldnt stop laughing. It was a wonderful sight to watch. The fist pumping mechanics of Trulli, Webbers mechanics. Wow. It was too good.
After a long time, I enjoyed a race that Schumi didnt win!
Next week, the European Grand Prix @ Schumi's home town (Guess he was born 50 miles away from the circuit). Lets see! Guess Ferrari will go for the heavy fuel load strategy till they sort out their performance issues!
Whatever it is, F1 is back at its entertaining best :-)
