Agreed on all counts...though really he was champion for 38 seconds.


Heh I'm another one that didn't know the USGP was on this weekend because I have pretty much ignored this season.
But Norman Polanski is rereleasing his micro-bio of following Jackie Stewart through a Monaco Grand Prix weekend, Weekend Of A Champion coming to Netlix soon.
And another pretty cool contemporary Jackie Stewart interview posted up on Youtube.

USGP, yay. No Kimi, the usual Vettel situation, meh. 8 in a row? I'm sure it'll happen. Oh well, I'll still enjoy whatever goes on behind him.

Oh yeah, Buxton needs to shave that caterpillar off of his upper lip asap.

Yeah, can't see how Vettel doesn't win. The Red Bull was almost a second faster than the next best team. I'll watch because I like F1 racing, but it's not going to be much of a contest.

Yeah, I went down to the local import junkyard to get a Renault alternator to do the dance around, got one off of a rusty LeCar, so all is good on that front. Not sure if it's working though.

For those of you unfamiliar with formula 1 racing:

....The first driver to cross the finish line wins.
....Lower drag mean higher straight line speed
...internal combustion provides motive force..

good grief this is a pedantic broadcast.
