So far I've watched Friday practice and Saturday qualifying. Numerous lovely spins but many were not from the usual suspects. Massa, for example, generally kept it off the scenery and did rather well for himself, all things considered. Kovalainen put in a class performance and earned his cheque. Raikkonen and Hamilton must be crying into their suitcases full of money, eh?
On another note: The sideburn is de rigueur in F1; witness Alonso, Hamilton, et al. I wonder if my own lack of speed has to do with my more conservative sideburns. It's not the first time I've noticed something like this; it's happened in football too. Back when Juventus were actually competing for matches rather than buying them outright (think 90s or so) their entire forward lineup had stiletto sideburns. Coincidence?
I *SO* hope it not just rains but POURS tomorrow. I want to see a minimum-laps-by-law GP in a monsoon. It'll let the lads sort out their differences in an "equalizer" environment, and it'll bring apart the men from the boys.
