Felipe Massa - Cowabunga - Shaka

Valencia Circuit – One word – gorgeous!

European Grand Prix – One word – boring!

Despite being a rather boring race it was great to see a different track. Not only that, it was a rather beautiful track. Love the fact the cars had a bridge to go over too – nice touch :) Will be very interesting to see the Singapore Grand Prix later this year too. Anyway, back to the race, drivers and teams…

Felipe Massa – If ever a win was truly deserved it was this one. What a great way to come back from such a disappointment in the last round. Massa is driving like a man who well and truly deserves to be world champion. It’s amazing to think he had some really embarrassing moments earlier in the year. He’s put it all together now though and is showing he’s worthy. Well done! :)

Also, I don’t know what this cowabunga/shaka hand thing he was doing at the end of the race was, but it was funny :)   It was either cowabunga or a Twinings ad… 8)
Lewis Hamilton – Not his best race, but still a strong result especially given he was a bit ill.

Kimi Raikkonen – The fact that his engine blew up doesn’t really hide the fact that his race performances are just terrible lately. I wonder if he can put it all back together like Massa did…

Fernando Alonso and the Spanish Fans – Oh, the pain!! 8)  But hey, I think his qualifying performance was more painful…

Renault Engine – Seems to be the top of everyone’s most hated/unwanted list lately…

Robert Kubica – A rather “anonymous” drive. Nothing exciting, but another good result. Shame he hasn’t been able to keep the points ticking that well since his win earlier in the year…

Heikki Kovalainen – Another number 2 drive… and that could be number 2 as in driver or as in “I need to do a number 2″… ;)

Sebastian Vettel – Proving once again he’s a star.

Red Bull vs Toro Rosso – Wow.. the Toro Rosso guys are really making their car work well now. Surely Red Bull can’t just blame the Renault engine alone can they? Maybe.. :)

Toyota – Keep an eye on them, especially Timo Glock (even though Jarno Trulli finished higher)… :P

Honda – ke!?

Nick Heidfeld – It was nice knowing you… :)

  1. Vettel is putting on a good show, that is for sure. I think once he moves over to Red Bull we will see if its really the engines….

  2. i’m so sad about Alonso this year is not so good in the Spanish GP.He have bad luck..
    Massa did very good job..
    Kimi he try to kill the man with his car but he didn’t,i hope the man is good…

  3. Yes a well deserved win for Massa…but yeah, what was with the hand gestures? Hopefully that doesn’t continue for the rest of the season (I mean both Ferrari winning and the annoying gestures ;) )

  4. Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you
    download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple
    adjustements would really make my blog jump out.
    Please let me know where you got your theme. Appreciate it

  5. One of the best ways to increase exposure for your own business or cause is to
    expand your influence on social networking sites.
    For businesses, marketing through social media allows you to track the types of people,
    or “followers,” who enjoy your product or service.Marketing through Social media also allows you
    and others to gauge the popularity of your company. Social networking sites also help us address
    one of the key needs of being accepted and appreciated
    by our peer groups. Unfortunately, this takes an unsavory twist when the
    number of followers or friends can actually be purchased to make a business look more popular than it actually
    is. There exists a very real marketplace you can truely rely on,
    where buying Twitter followers and Facebook likess
    can be possible.
