Time for the French Grand Prix

leave a comment

Je parle francais, mais ma francaise n’est pas bien. 😛 , Excusez moi !

We head to Magny Cours for possibly the last French Grand Prix in a long long time, i was looking at the satellite photo of Magny Cours circuit and loved the F1 written in huge Golden Yellow letters and also the French flag drawn. Looks great from the Aerial view.


The main fight is expected to be between the McLarens of Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton. There is an uneasy calm in the McLaren camp, everyone knows both of these drivers want to push the other one down and so far the rookie Lewis Hamilton is doing quite a good job of kicking Fernando Alonso’s butt.

Another one of the drivers obviously looking for better luck will be Toyota’s Ralf Schumacher, being out on the first corner at Indianapolis may have been the last nail in his coffin. Ralf who won the race in 2003 with the then fast Williams team was quoted as saying

“To retire at the first corner in the last race at Indianapolis was obviously very disappointing, especially after a pretty good qualifying performance but I am determined to have a better race in France. Jarno’s result demonstrated what the team can achieve and I expect us to be fighting for points again.”

My answer to that is , doesn’t Jarno always demonstrate the Toyota is fast 😛
