    TR GP: Ferrari back, nobody stands out

    Being in exile, I get to watch GPs at 0400 or so, and it usually means I'm either in a coma or in a reasonably bad mood -- I'm either in no position to criticize anyone or very critical as a result.

    Apparently Hamilton and Alonso met in a hotel in Constantinople and when they emerged they said "we're fine." OK, let's take that at face value. This leaves the McLaren/Ferrari spying saga as far as intrigue is concerned, plus who's going to fork cash over to Ralf next year.

    Ferrari went well and Hamilton ran out of luck, plus he had a mediocre start. Alonso took advantage. What struck me the most though is that none of the frontrunner IMO have shown "world driving champion" status and there's only six grands prix left. Nobody is outshining anyone else right now. Maybe this is normal and how things are meant to be, maybe everyone is so well matched. Hamilton is notable for his youth, Alonso his beard, Massa his blunders, and Raikkonen for having a pulse (who'd have guessed?), but nobody is this generation's Fangio. On to Italy.

    I wasn't awake to watch it, but I was happy with the results. It is true what you said no one seems to really be outshining anyone else. Hopefully Ferrari can keep reeling the mclarens in. Only 11 points behind

    ... And speaking of Italy, I'd like to state for the record that the whole "San Marino GP" and "Italian GP" plus the whole "Rally Monte Carlo" and "Tour de Corse" isn't fooling anybody. They're excuses to give Italy two Grands Prix and France two rallies. Fans can read maps, that's how they show up to pay for tickets.
