2010 Canada Thoughts

THE BIG PICTURE: Red Bull isn't all conquering after all. At least, they are not all conquering on all tracks, which makes them not all conquering. Now, if they can't get their mojo back at Valencia, then it's more than just not being all conquering. It would mean McLaren has truly displaced Red Bull's not so long ago all conquering status.

EVENT: 300,000 fans for the weekend. More fans on Friday than many tracks get for Sunday. But, Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, China, Turkey, et al, are all better F1 countries than Canada. Bernie tells us, thus it has to be so ... while he counts the money...

QUALIFYING: Once again, McLaren times it just right to squeeeeeze one more lap out of qualifying ... a lap that gets them the pole.

RACE: An absolute thriller from start to finish.

TRACK: There was a time when this track didn't necessarily excite the senses. Now, it's one fans look forward to watching F1 on.

START: A Petrov fubar--aided by jumping the start--and a Force India gang up on Massa.

HAMILTON: Two in a row for Lewis who always seems to find something to do which causes controversy.

BUTTON: Jenson ran a great race overshadowed by his teammate.

ALONSO: Whether it's speed, guile, or luck, or a bit of all three, Fernando is the only driver saving Ferrari's prancing hide.

VETTEL: Now, it's not even Sebastian's fault that he continues to slip down the standings.

WEBBER: Mark is looking forward to getting back to the non-long straightaway tracks.

ROSBERG: Nico got his fastest driver of the team status back, even if Mercedes still refuses to acknowledge it.

KUBICA: Should Robert leave Renault? Is there a worthwhile seat available?

BUEMI: The Toro Rosso led a lap! The Toro Rosso led a lap!

SCHUMACHER: Everybody took it to Old Michael. So much for respect towards the seven-time World Champion.

MASSA: Miscues, contacts, and penalties just add to Felipe's miserable season.

PETROV: Overaggressive. Again.

KOBAYASHI: What a dumb ass move.

WORLD CUP: Would loved to have seen the ribbing Vettel gave Webber after Germany crushed Australia.

LE MANS: Talk about the classic tortoise and hare story. But to happen after Peugeot already proved themselves at La Sarthe instead of in their first year of trying is shocking.

WORD OF THE WEEKEND: Tires.

STAT OF THE WEEKEND: 2004 -- The last time the Canadian Grand Prix ran without the need for the safety car.

HISTORICAL STAT OF THE WEEKEND: This is the 13th time a driver from a Commonwealth Nation won the Canadian Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton (UK-2007, 2010), Jackie Stewart (UK-1971, 1972), and Alan Jones (AUS-1979, 1980) won it twice each. Single winners from the UK were Damon Hill (1996), Nigel Mansell (1986), and James Hunt (1976). Jack Brabham (AUS-1967), Denny Hulme (NZ-1968), and Jody Scheckter (SA-1977) each won as did home town hero Gilles Villeneuve (1978). Of course, it should have been 14 if Mansell hadn't thrown away an obvious win in 1991 by waving to the crowd...

QUOTE OF THE WEEKEND: Bernie Ecclestone on returning to Canada, "It is wonderful to be back in Montreal, and to be honest, we shouldn't have left in the first place!" Translated from Bernese to English, he said, "We wouldn't have left if they had paid us the money in the first place!"

QUOTE OF THE WEEKEND RUNNERUP: After Vettel, driving an ailing car in the waning laps, asked what was the fastest lap of the race, his engineer came back scolding, "Don't even think about it!"

SCHEDULE: Back to Europe for the rest of the summer.
