I didn't see much of the NASCAR races due to the stupidity of a 4 hour race at night. Great win for Johnson and Hendrick Motorsports. If Gordo starts to do well this week, let the conspiracy theories abound. The NNS race, however, was again disgusting. Not only do we have Cup guys winning all the time, but now we have them deliberately wrecking NNS regulars for those wins. Remember that if the NNS points comes down to a few points with Sadler in 2nd.
Congratualtions to Pastor Maldonado on his first win. I watched him succeed in GP2, but I will admit I was one of his biggest critics. I believed he was only a pay driver and wasn't ready for F1. I never thought he would get a podium, never mind a win, but he showed the same talents that got him a GP2 title in a car that no other driver could consistently run in the points with. Looking at things, it looks like the two best teams are Lotus Renault and McLaren. Right now I would predict Kimi and Romain to win about 7 or 8 races combined. I am looking forward to the upcoming races at Monaco and Canada. It looks like F1 is set to be the most competitive series this year.
