    MC GP really fun this year

    I really enjoyed the GP this year. Lots of action, lots of unpredictable events, and plenty of dueling.

    I can't imagine how/why Raikkonen was beaten off the line by Barichello. That set the tone for the whole GP since Ferrari were playing chase at best from that point onward. Meanwhile, for the first 1/3 of the GP the greatest battles were fought for positions 4-6, with plenty of passing, plenty of straightlined chicaines and lots of passing (Rosberg's move on Massa was awesome).

    Even qualifying was really interesting this time around, with Raikkonen putting up a real challenge to the Brawn team. I don't know why he pulled in on his final lap rather than do another flying and try to get pole back once more. Maybe it was traffic or a fuel issue or just not part of the plan. Still, the Brawn cars are really quick.

    Commentating from Speed was also not bad at all this time around, with only a few snafus that are completely understandable in a live broadcast (one of the trio mixed up the prime and option soft vs. supersoft, for example, but it's really no big deal and much improved overall).
    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929

    It was a pretty good race. Ferrari has made a big improvement between this race and the last. I still don't think he we have much hope of catching the Brawns but perhaps we'll finish in a more honorable position.

    Raikkonen said he pulled in on that last qualifying lap because he went off in turn one, and couldn't possibly make another fast lap after that.
