Bernie Ecclestone once joked that sprinklers should be installed on every track to make the racing more excitable. I'm half want to take him up on the offer.
Because if we have more outcomes like that, the championship would be a lot more interesting.
I still think that Perez may have been spooked out of winning the Grand Prix on political grounds. I mean, could you imagine a customer Ferrari engine, with a Ferrari development driver at the wheel, beating the two-time World Champion in the works Ferrari? It would have been a major embarrassment to the Prancing Horse team, and they would've been a luaghing stock in Italy!
Still, I predict Perez to be Alonso's team-mate next year, whatever Massa does.
The IndyCar was, though, less excitable. The near carnage that Turn One in St. Petersburg brings was non-existent, and the racing at the front was mediocre at best.
In fact if it weren't for Twitter, I wouldn't have know what the heck was going on if weren't for the many people camped at Turn One to report on the action. Take note ABC!
Though it's good to see Helio back to his winning ways. And the celebration that followed was poignant and well recieved by fans. Dan Wheldon Way was definitely a sure-fire success.
I'm looking forward to Barber though. It's always a good atmosphere, and this may be the time where we see what the new car is capable of in close-quarters racing.
Speaking of Twitter, I'm back on it now after figuring out what it's all about. I'm always willing to talk and I'm on most race weekends, so hit me up on @_neilo.
