Okay, well, yeah, freaked me out a bit, him crashing like that. I mean it’s his first proper crash this year on probably one of the most difficult tracks so far, but it still scared me when he didn’t get out the car quite as fast as I expected.
Still, I think it could have been a lot worse, he could have done that right at the start of FP1 and not got any running in at all, which would have been crap. They also have spares of his new rear wing so that’s good too. And most importantly, he’s ok.
He’s still off MAL’s pace, and while this doesn’t worry me too much because he’s still learning and the team know that, having to deal with commentators and media who don’t keep everything in mind is really beginning to get boring. It would be nice if he could finish above him in FP3 and then qualify better, but I’m not hoping for a great deal.
But anyway I’m somewhat off Bruno-worry-duty this weekend as I have tennis to stress over so I don’t think I’ll be here for the rest of the weekend, F1-wise. Enjoy it and scream at him if necessary :D
This is probably the latest present in the world but happy birthday, Cansu! <3 12+ hours (this was a troublesome one but I’m happy with it in the end, love working with reflections. Sebastian Vettel, Canada 2011)
What has been your favourite race of the season so far?
Oooh this is a difficult one. This season has been really, really good so far, one of the best ones I’ve watched. Well, it depends which drivers you support, I suppose.
Today’s, Hungary, was actually really entertaining, even though there wasn’t a huge deal of overtaking. The driving skills still came through, though, obviously some fantastic smoothness from Jenson. Seb kept his cool. Paul was being his ninja self and avoiding Hamilton’s mistake.
But my favourite so far has to be Canada. I know pretty much everyone hated it because we were stuck with the safety car for most of the afternoon and the BBC boys resorted to bird spotting. And technically I should have disliked it because Seb made his mistake which started off the whole OOOH HE’S CRACKING UNDER PRESSURE HE’S NOT A REAL DRIVER thing.
But no, it was utterly fantastic. I love it when things go down to the line in F1, especially with two drivers at the front. And F1 is fabulous in the wet, even though I complain when it rains. It was exciting, not knowing when the safety car was going in, tyre things, everything about that race.
And it was probably the first time I realised I really do want to work in F1. Some fans would probably switch off when the safety car was out, or when no cars were on the grid, but I loved all the discussion and talk and chat about the cars, the drivers, teams, prospects for the season. I realised that I don’t care if I’m just the person who sweeps the rain off the track, I want to go around the world with F1.
Anyway that’s me just getting all inspired and shit, haha, ignore me.
Oh yeah and my favourite driver won the race soooo I was happy, haha.
Oh but I must mention my love for Monaco, it was fantastic this year.
Although the photoshoots afterwards were almost as beautiful.
Anyway I’ll ramble if I don’t stop about how gorgeous Seb and Jaime and Mark are soo I’ll stop.
OKAY I CAN’T HELP IT HERE THEY ARE
Hmkay two of the best ones there, will save some more for my favourite track day. <3
