Formula1 World Champion: Lewis Hamilton

Posted on November 3, 2008

Todays Grand Prix of Brazil marked the end of the 2008 Formula 1 World Championship, and on the 2nd to the last corner, fate crowned Lewis Hamilton World Champion. It was an exciting race. Unlike last year, Lewis was much more controlled and calm... he wasn't fighting battles he didn't need to fight, which cost him the crown last year. However, very much like last year, late in the race he just fell apart and acted like he forgot how ...

I know many of you who read this blog dislike my posting about Formula 1 from time-to-time, but this one is worth a look. The Belgian Grand Prix on the legendary Spa-Francorchamps circuit is perhaps one of the most challenging of the season, and certainly my favorite of all F1 tracks (although, I still have a soft spot for the A1 Ring). Spa challenges drivers unlike any other track during the year and is always exciting, but this year ...

I made it out to Sunday Night Heats at LeMans Karting tonight; 'twas a good finish to a great weekend of racing. I fared well, finished 4th in the final and had a best lap of 19.3s (18's are great drivers, 19's are good drivers, 20's are "learn your line!" times, and everything above that is for back markers) which is great because you figure every extra 10lbs add a tenth of a second to your time, and I'm about 30lbs over the weight I think I ...

Kimi Wins Formula1 World Championship!!!

Posted on October 21, 2007

It's been a long time coming! Tamarah and I have been big time Kimi fans for years and after unbearably bad luck season after season its great to see the Iceman take that title! Alanso's behavior this season has been horrible, and I'm glad to see him de-throned. For Lewis... it was his to loose, and he did. But frankly, the man of the hour is Felipe Massa, with that brilliant blocking move at the start and gracefully following orders to be ...

Formula1: Final Race This Weekend (Brazil)

Posted on October 19, 2007

The final race of the 2007 season is this weekend and its not something you want to miss! The top 3 drivers are all within 10 points of each other and mathematically any of them can clinch the title. Lewis Hamilton leads with 107 points, Fernando Alonso trails at 103, and Kimi Räikkönen is still in the hunt with 100 points. The likelyhood of Lewis Hamilton loosing the title fight are very low, but Alonso has been dirty this year and ...
