Well, last race ever on Speed. Is this a bad thing? We’ll see. I certainly won’t miss News Corp., but there’s no reason to believe Comcast/GE is any better. Constructors Champion is Red Bull, but McLaren and Scuderia Marlboro duke it out for second place today. If Vettel finishes worse than 4th there’s a possibility Alonso could sneak by for the Drivers Championship. This is not as far fetched as it sounds, the Renault engine, especially the alternator, has been looking less reliable the longer it runs; and, much as I hate to admit it, Alonso has shown a true talent for making bad hardware suck less than it otherwise might.
Also, it could rain.
In retrospect all the aerodynamicists agree that it’s the flexibility of the Red Bull front wing (and not the undercarriage diffuser or any of the other hareng rouge (yes, I know the correct translation is diversion) they’ve been chasing for the last 3 years, so they’re going to legislate against it.
Good luck with that.
2013 starts in March and is currently scheduled for 19 races, but subject to change. Likewise the new Concorde.
Hards and Mediums, Maldonado 10 grid penalty for ignoring a blue inspection flag. Schumacher says goodbye.
While the races may be boring I hope these pieces have informed you a bit about the miasma of cash and corruption that drives professional sports in general and the particular cesspool of elite international corporate perversion and degeneracy represented by the fossil fueled extinction of dead dinosaur technology that is Formula One.
