Turkish Grand Prix

{ Posted on Aug 28 2006 by dScribe }

Wow.. another fantastic race! Who would have thought we could have 2 exciting races in a row! ;)

The points:

  • The Turkish Circuit – It has to be said, this is one of the best tracks in the world, even if it does blatantly copy some other tracks (I thought I was watching the Brazilian Grand Prix with that Senna-S there!! ;) ). Or could it be that F1 drivers are finding grip off the racing line this season? Either way, thumbs up for the track!
  • Felipe Massa – Perfect race. The boy who was once so prone to driver-error is now a man 8) Very fast and no mistakes. Well done! PS. Now you can go buy yourself a new watch because your current one is well ugly! ;)
  • Fernando Alonso – Once again extracted maximum points from a under-paced car.
  • Michael Schumacher - I heard someone say Michael should have won. He was very unlucky with the pace car. However, I didn’t see Massa and Fernando go off track.. Without that little mistake Michael probably would have won.
  • Kimi Raikkonen – Another race, another retirement.. Definitely Mika Hakkinen version 2.0.
  • Christijan Albers – This guy really is making a name for himself in a crappy car.
  • Nico Rosberg – Gets the Gentleman Driver of the Race award. Nico did really well to move out of the way while coming into the pits to retire. He moved out of the way of another driver who was coming in for his scheduled pit stop.
  • Pedro de la Rosa – This guy loves to move as far back as he can at the start of the race then fight his way through. Only this time he didn’t get too far.
  • Giancarlo Fisichella – Put this guy in a team with Kimi Raikkonen and you wouldn’t get Lucky Strike sponsorship because there’d be nothing lucky about the combination! Fisi had an inspiring drive after his early spin.
  • Honda vs Toyota – Some great passes from both teams!
  • Robert Kubica – This guy was on fire… then finished 12th. The jury is still out. He’s exciting, but will he bring in the results?
