WordPress is a jerk.
So let’s see, what has gone on in the past week? First if you missed Sebastian Vettel on Letterman…
Definitely haven’t been trying to upload that for a week! Warning: if you can’t stand David Letterman, don’t even press play. His absolute obsession with Indy (as in the track) just ruins it.
- Some former drivers participated in the 24 Hours of Le Mans this past weekend. It’s the first time in years I haven’t watched the entire thing but I was feeling rather apathetic towards it considering the lack of Peugeot. The usual ex-F1 suspects participated, with a few new faces. Sebastien Buemi, and Kazuki Nakajima, Karun Chandhok all made their first ever appearances at Le Mans. Things did not go too well for Buemi or Nakajima, as Toyota’s debut lead to neither car finishing. Chandhok’s team placed 6th overall.
For Anthony Davidson, it was quite a weekend. His Toyota prototype went flying through the air and landed him in the hospital with two broken vertebrae. Things were better for Giancarlo Fisichella, who brought his team home to a first place finish in their GT class.
- Michael Schumacher is being touted as the next winner of a race, which would be the snorefest that is Valencia, according to Paul Hembery from Pirelli. Kind of a weird thing for him to suggest given Schumacher’s criticisms of the tires so far this season.
- Lotus F1 are hoping to finish the season fourth in constructors points. Romain Grosjean is pretty close to victory that he’s appearing in my dreams as my roommate.
- Sauber is also hoping a win isn’t too far off, given Sergio Perez has had two podium appearances so far this season.
- There’s a new round of calls for cost cutting measures, which should come as no surprise. The FIA is hoping measures can be set in place for next season, but time is running out.
