Well, with sleeper sleeping the beginning of this years motorsports action has flew by the ol' PA machine. With the F1 season starting up I figured this would be a good time to start those engines. 

Go, go, go.

Honestly it didn't look nearly as ugly as I thought it would. In most shots I barely even noticed it was there.

5th place finish for Alonso?
What is this madness!?!?

Still a bit sad that Kimi, who as ya know was my fav driver of my F1 time, is holding the seat at Ferrari. Really feel it should've to Hulk, though by this point he's prob too old and it'll go to the next 20 year old. 
Here's to a good season, hoping Vettel can pull this one out, or ya know someone besides him and Seb but let's be real here haha

^ 7th for Fernando is a bit more like it! Wink And who's the Gastly dude who took 4th last Sunday?

Vettel did it again! Nice drive. Not sure why Kimi didn't keep going after his incident. The old wheel and tire was still securely on the car. He still might have ended up in the points.

Great race today thanks to Verstappen. Nice climb from Kimi too after practically throwing away the podium to give Vettel a chance to win.

Alexander Rossi flat out dominated the weekend in Long Beach and now has three wins on three of the top tracks in all of racing.

Ricciardo takes China! Great drive. Great race! They should have put these stupid looking halos on the cars years ago as the racing is superb! Clown

Classic Bristol bump 'n' run is back!  It was the Kyle & Kyle show at the end and it was Rowdy Busch on the bumping end of said move, bumping Larson out of the way with six laps to go to claim his 45th Cup series win!

Indy (500) this Sunday. Whoever gets the new areo package right will run away with it. Penske? I'm going going with Danica as the dark horse. Just because.

Great Pole for Daniel in Monaco

^ Absolutely! He's owed a win after losing to a pit miscue a couple of years ago. 3 classic races, one day. Whew!

And now the Indy 500. Power currently leads. I hope Alex Rossi can manage to pull it off

Congrats to Power! Always liked the guy, glad he was able to be in the right position there at the end. 

Great reaction in victory lane too

Even though Indy was a little different today, I enjoyed the hell out of it.  And Rossi revealed how big his balls were today, too.

Trust me, I was nervous as hell those last few laps.  No way did I think he'd be able to dominate literally all night long like that.

Good win by Power. I've come to like him more now that he's not running over the top of everyone to get to first. He's become a cool, calculating and  fast driver, IMHO. Congrats to Daniel for the obvious reasons. I turned off the World 600. Too boring to watch after seeing Monaco I'm afraid. LOL

Well there wasn't even one proper safety car and despite the new tyre everyone in the front only stopped once.

The problem with this race that everyone was saving their tyres.   This is not racing.  Though I am glad that Daniel won though!!...Smile

^ Monaco is so iconic but I don't remember ever seeing one on TV that was not a procession. The first one I watched was in 1975 on ABC's Wide World of Sports (I think). It was run in the rain with Lauda winning. The rain added a lot of excitement and going through that tunnel! Wow!

Doh! Cant believe I forgot to post here. I was travelling at the time. 

Belated congrats to Ricciardo! Redemption served! 

Congrats to Seb for his Canada win! 
Takes a, razor thin, lead for the title again. THIS is what Im talking about, real competition. 

Unlike Kimi....hurts to say from your biggest fan since 2003, time to hang it up Iceman. Unless Seb is that superior with a car that is beneath him (which is possible) he just isn't hanging at all. Kinda sad, someone else could be there.

^Like Ricciardo.  Could you imagine the fight he could give Seb, if the team allowed it?  It would make F1 interesting again.

Scott Dixon takes a pretty dominating win last night at Texas and takes the points lead over Alexander Rossi and Will Power, who had issues and dropped to third.  I'm still hoping Rossi can keep his consistency going and take the title fight to Sonoma when I go. Tongue

I can't believe no one is talking about Alonso conquering the second leg of the Triple Crown over the weekend, as "easy" as it might have come.  Now, he needs to come back to IndyCar full time and conquer Indy.
