Massa, Bottas is faster than you...

Regardless of what you think about team orders, Massa must have been thinking, You've got to be kidding me????

Seems like no matter where he goes, he's being asked to move over. Makes you wonder how he gets ahead in the first place.

As for the F1 race in Sepang, I don't know. It seems even more processional this year than in past. Alonso's pass on Hulkenburg for 4th was about the only excitement in the last 3/4th of the race. There was a little tension between the two red bulls and Rosberg's Mercedes but never really any drama. A botched pit stop for the "second" red bull driver is not unexpected after Webber's year last year. LOL.

This combined with the complaints about the sound (lack of) and it might be a bad year for f1.

Smedley worked at Ferrari with Massa, prior to joining Williams. To add salt to the wound, he originally said that "Fernando" then corrected himself that "Vitaily was faster than you" Being told that Alonso was faster, must have been like a kick in nuts for him.

Was it Smedley that relayed the message? Really? I thought that was his man. But I guess when the order comes from Claire Williams, you pretty much have to follow.

He didn't say Fernando, did he?

Oh, I figured it out, it was an early April Fool's joke on Massa.

Wouldn't that have been funny.

And he never really challenged him for position. At least I didn't think he did.

Did you hear Williams say that they would have made Bottas give back the position to Massa at the end of the race if he(Bottas) couldn't pass Jensen.

Uhhhhh, yeah, riiiiiiiight.


Bahrain in 4 days. Quick turn around. Then MotoGP in Austin. Awesome! (even though Honda has walked away from Yamaha at that track.)

That might change when Lorenzo figures out that you can't lean 54 degrees on cold tires.

Marquez has certainly caused everyone to push harder than they ever have.

Marquez was recovering with a broken ankle during the first race of the season. let's face it, the boy has the balls and talent to be where he is. As, a past owner of more than few Honda Bikes, it works for me.

Thinking about gooing down to Indy on may 10th for the inaugeral Indy Grand prix to watch the Indy cars on the old F1 road course. Since, I used to work track rescue for CART. I haven't been to an Indy car race in Indy since the USAC-CART split. Guess, it may be time to bury the grudge.
