I'm no Alonso fan but wow, that is a great shot. Perfectly timed and between the flag and his arm being up in celebration, a perfect storm of the right elements at the right time.

Diffy always seems to watch a different race to the rest of us, I think he just likes the sound of his own voice...

Mark "Seb's Bitch" Webber to Porsche?

Interesting article on NBCSports.com (of all places) linking Webber to the Porsche LMP1 team for 2014.

I would like it for him, but Porsche has already issued a denial.

Cool video, thanks Greg. Today, he'd be penalized for that rolling start. Was that Mansell or Berger? Never mind, I see it's Berger with Ferrari's only race win of the season, and he "beat" Senna at the start.

The #2 driver, on a top team that has a clear hierarchy, essentially sells his soul. He trades his pride and status with his peers, for race wins he wouldn't get anywhere else. We're seeing it with Webber, we saw it with Barrichello and we're seeing it with Massa, who has almost becomes Alonso's pet. They're pitiable creatures. and we can relate to their pain. For who among us wouldn't make the same deal?

I don't think you should put too much pity on Massa. Brundle made a comment at the end of the Chinese Grand Prix about Massa's resurgence lately, but the fact that he was 20 seconds behind Alonso with 5-10 laps left shows why Alonso is #1

I wondered why he had lined up so far behind his grid spot... a man with a plan
