    Default 2008 FORMULA 1 TELEFONICA GRAND PRIX OF EUROPE. (24 Aug.)

    Street circuit of Valencia. A new circuit (just like Singapore GP). Who will triumph in Valencia? But I guess that this event will be overshadowed by the closing ceremony of the Beijing Olympics.

    Oh the Valancia circuit looks a bit weird! Some parts got colourful buildings while some parts look desolute! The track looks good and wide but hear that overtaking opp not good. I like the bridge part of the circuit and leading to the long straight where those ex boats birthed. If I have 1 of those boats, I'll invite everyone of there!

    A HUGE CONGRATS to MASSA!!!

    Defying all odds, Massa drove FLAT-OUT! No compromise, with a stiff middle finger to Lady Luck. Simply an amazing drive.

    Well, Kimi and Ferrari as a team has blown it, literally. From Massa's near-miss on the out lap with Force India, to Kimi's botched second stop, and culminating in the latter's "grenaded" engine.

    Perhaps the passionate Italians aren't best suited to managing teams. Maybe Schumi lurking around the pit walls with increasing regularity is a sign of a future team boss role. Someone as ruthless, decisive, cunning, and scheming as Schumi would indeed be a perfect team boss!

    Now, we just need an equally aggressive, decisive, and ruthless driver in the scarlet car. Hola Fernando!!!

    MASSA NUMBER 1!!!

    today the pit crew not up to scratch. 2 major foul-ups. hopefully they dun penalize massa for that. was the 2nd incident kimi's fault? kimi also seem lacking determination.

    I hope not too! That would be daylight robbery of a hard-earned race!

    Regarding Kimi's second stop, didn't the lollipop man give the go-ahead? On the other hand, there were still red lights on the side display though. I suspect it's partly Kimi's mistake too.

    The team's just in a mess right now.

    Dunno wat to say bout Ferrari's pits and Kimi. Real disaster, luckily, Massa salvage some for Ferrari.

    1st, Kimi drove like he is not interested in defending his title.
    2nd, his turn to have engine blow up. Wats up with Ferrari? 2 in a row?
    3rd, pit cork up with Massa and kimi's stop. Hope that pit crew is alright.

    Great to see Massa win this race after his most unfortunate exit from the Hungarian GP.

    damn disappointed with Kimi. it's like he's not interested in driving anymore. his qualifying sucks and his race performance is below par. he doesn't drive like a champion. i'm hoping that he will pull his socks together and perform well to claim his 2nd WC. after that, if he want to retire... he can do so.

    and there is no lollipop man in the ferrari's camp (i think). they now use the overhead light signals which is operated by a human being. maybe the lollipop man got upgraded. the commotion in the pit-lane is all attributed to Kimi's fault. he's trying to jump the gun hoping to get in front of Heikki. if he's pit release is clean, he'd definitely be in front of Heikki liao.

    last but not least... congrats to Massa for bringing his car home in the #1 spot

    he had a pretty uneventful race (except the pit release with Sutil). he drove superbly and is a very deserving winner.

    and oh... the race in Valencia is so boooringgg... it's just like another Monaco except for the new sceneries. damn... they should remove all these boring tracks from the race calendar. F1 is all about racing and overtaking... not just following cars around the track and hope that somebody screws up... haiz.

    Amen to that! Sadly enough, the Singapore track is not going to be much different. I saw the simulations of the Singapore GP track on youtube, and boy oh boy are they boring! Good for Singapore Tourism, but sianz as an F1 enthusiast.

    IMO, FIA is pro-Ferrari. Not trying to sound like a sour grape, but that dangerous release at the pit only warrants a fine? Hai, I think if it was a McLaren, they will be slapped a much heavier penalty.

    But, congratulations to F. Massa for a well deserved win. He was perfect on the race track. Even the pit incident was not his doing.

    Glad to see Massa win, but Kimi was a big disappointment, and the Ferrari pit crew better wake up their idea!
