Chinese Grand Prix – Well Done Jensen and Hamilton!
Well I hope you all got up bright and early on Sunday morning to see our boys run to an amazing One, Two at the Chinese Grand Prix!
After the poor race in Bahrain we were all a bit fearful that the F1 season might be a bit of a turkey, but the last 2 races have been really action packed haven’t they! Super-smooth Jensen’s drive to an immaculate win was very impressive from the front, but it is un-doubtable that Lewis Hamilton was the star of the show with another Go Karting like day of insane overtaking and cheeky pit-lane moves. I would swear he has learnt some of those moves from you lot down at Edmonton! From what I saw of the race it looks like the Red Bulls were mainly just very unlucky, but they will have to change that soon or it might be put down to a bad job. What do you lot think of Michael Schumacher at the moment? With Nico Rosberg doing so well it is obviously mounting on the media pressure, but I for one still have faith that he will come good in the return from China to Europe. I get the feeling that once he has had time to stamp his knowledge and style on the design and function of the car he will be flying again. Last but not least, how would you rate The Chinese Grand Prix? I think it was about a 9/10, but that might be slightly inflated due to our boys bringing it home!
