I was very surprised on how may fans showed up! After being stabbed in the heart last year, Iam not so forgiving. Like my good book says, "Never Forgive"
The first turn on the start was kinda funny, leaving 12 cars running. Then Sato banging into what's his name, down to 10. Ralf out with 9 laps to go, leaving 9 cars finishing. That's 3 more than last year Was good to see Ferrari pull out the 1-2. No victory for Michelin since 1912 @ Indy!!!!

It's good that Sato took out some backmarkers...

I hope this is a sign that Ferrari finally got their cars right, cause their cars were obviously slower than the Renault's throughout the whole season... :corn

I havent been keeping up with F1 as of late, so someone fill me in I heard during the race than Alonso is leaving Renault after this season; where is he going? Who will take his place? Also Michelin is pulling out of the series. Are all the teams gonna run Bridgestones next year?

Alonso is going to McLaren next year...

Not sure who will replace him yet for Renault... :corn

If Michelin does pulls out in 2007, then yes Bridgestone will be the sole tires supplier in F1... Michelin has already announced/rejected the contract for 2008, 2009, 2010, as the sole supplier cause they didn't like this single-tire-supplier rule made by the FIA...

LOL Kimi is the joker in the who goes where game for next season.

Current season:
Renault: Alonso - Fisichella
Mclaren: Räikkönen - Montoya
Ferrari: Schumacher - Massa

Next season:
Renault: ? - Fisichella
Mclaren: Alonso - ?
Ferrari: Schumacher? - ?

Montoya hasn't said if he's staying or going
Schumi has yet to announce if he stays or goes
Ferrari is said to have a multimillion first option on Kimi, but there's rumors flying of him getting a ride with Renault.
There's another Finn, Heikki Kovalainen, the current Renault test driver that is also said to have a shot at the Renault seat.
Massa's Ferrari contract expires at the end of the 06 season
Also GP2 phenomenon Lewis Hamilton has been under the wings of Mclaren for years

It's confusing, but once Kimi announces which team he'll be driving for next season, things will start to fall into place.


--------
As for the race......"I have no grip" Alonso let Fisi by (who the hell starts braking in the middle of a straight?) and Michelin screwed up with their tyres again.

Juan caused the crash, but he's blaming everyone else, obviously Ron Dennis(Mclaren team principal) has refused to blame anyone (because it was pretty obvious that it wasn't anyone but one of his own drivers causing it and it's sort of embarrassing that Juan took out his team mate while blaming him as well)

I was pretty dissapointed to see nearly half the field taken out in the very first turn Oh well, I was kinda happy to see the Toyotas doing better (well Trulli atleast) and I was hoping to see Kimi get up front but that never happened.

The only team that had failures were Toyota. And like 3 or 4 races later, Williams BMW had Michelin problems, did they have all the other Michelin runners stop racing? NO..... Was BS for sure
