Oh would you look at that Kimi fails again

facepalm.jpg @ NelsinHo.

Felipe did much better than expected, as did Kubica considering his fears of no-tc


Tomorrow's going to awesome. Get up way too early, in just a few hours, then nap then pack my shit up and go to some middle of nowhere mountain area and mountain/cross country ski and be all stereotypical Norwegian during easter yay.
*just finished greasing my boots yay*

It seems much more exciting now that the traction control has been turned off. I love to watch them slide around the corners! I cant wait till the race!

No doubt... TC in any form of racing is bad.

Great race! See comments in spoilers tag.

Spoiler:
If every F1 race this year is half as exciting, I'll be happy. Much more drivers dueling then most races. I felt so bad for Bourdais, he came in and nearly got 4th in his debut, only to be robbed by a ferrari engine failure. speaking of which, 3 Ferarri engines bad in one weekend, plus a fuel pump on Saturday that cost Kimi his qualifying. Heikki drove well too, 2nd safety car ruined his race. Lewis was barely shown at all, his car had maybe 30 seconds of airtime the whole race.
