  • Blog Post: San Marino Grand Prix Win Signals a Return for Ferrarii?

    I bet Pat Symonds is kicking himself right now. Fernando Alonso was being held up by Michael Schumacher, who was struggling in his Ferrari, so Renault tries to get some faster laps for Alonso by calling him in early. The problem was that Ross Brawn simply called Schumacher in on the next lap and he exits...
  • Blog Post: The F1 Circus Lands in Melbourne with a Qualifying Hodge-Podge

    The land down under hosts the third Grand Prix of the season in the lovely city of Melbourne. I can say that from experience having had the pleasure of visiting the city some years ago. The Albert Park Circuit is also a fun one to watch, thought I've actually not been there myself during the F1 weekend...
  • Blog Post: Upcoming Tour Info and News About This Blog

    First, I just posted on the Canadian IT Pro blog about the upcoming Future of the Desktop Tour whose content I am responsible for. Check out the post at http://blogs.technet.com/canitpro/archive/2006/03/09/421680.aspx . This leads me to my second point, this blog will be changing focus somewhat. As...
  • Blog Post: Imola Qualifying - Tifosi Cheer as Michael Schumacher Captures Pole and Breaks Another Record

    It was the only record that I can think of that Michael Schumacher did not hold - the most poles in an F1 career. Ayrton Senna held it for the longest time with a total of 65 poles in his career and today Michael Schumacher broke it securing his 66th pole position at the San Marino Grand Prix in Imola...
  • Blog Post: Friday Free Practive at the Bahrain Grand Prix

    I love the first practice day of the first grand prix of the season. All the drivers are making bold statements as to why they did well or not, but the lap times mean almost nothing. Looking at the lap times for the day you have Anthony Davidson, a test driver from the Honda team on top followed by Michael...
  • Blog Post: Bahrain F1 Grand Prix Qualifying

    If Kimi Raikkonen did not have bad luck, he would have no luck at all. Last year he won more races than Fernando Alonso but still managed to lose the championship due to not finishing as many of them. This year looks like it might be starting the same way after the rear wing of his McLaren Mercedes flew...
  • Blog Post: F1 Season Starts with Some Excitement in Bahrain

    I personnally think that Kimi Raikkonen should start from the back of the grid at every race!! It was really exciting to watch him come through the field from 22nd on the grid to finish third. A podium finish from last place is an accomplishment, so much so that Fernando Alonso, who won the race for...
  • Blog Post: Fists Waving and Lots of Fun at European Grand Prix Quaifying

    Giancarlo Fisichella was quite the sight berating Jacques Villeneuve. Fisichela stormed into the BMW Sauber pit lane between the last two sessions of qualifying and looked like he wanted Jacques to step out of his car and go at it mano-a-mano. He was still fuming quite a while afterwards, and it appears...
  • Blog Post: Excitement Down Under at the Australian Grand Prix

    Wasn't that an exciting finish to the Australian Grand Prix?? I'm not talking about Fernando Alonso winning the race - that was a forgone conclusion as soon as he took the lead. No, I mean the way Jenson Button's Honda engine exlpoded on the main straight within pushing distance of the finish line. Martin...
  • Blog Post: Malaysian Grand Prix Proves Exciting but Bad Luck and a Red Bull Strike Kimi Raikkonen

    Sorry for being so late to post about this, but it has been quite a week. After all, the Malaysin Grand Prix was on at 2am Sunday morning here in Toronto. After going to bed a 5am posting to the blog was replaced by family obligations, which took up the rest of my day. Monday arrives and the week leaves...
