Spa Race update :)

Great race ! My guess a little wrong as HAM again thought that other drivers have to disapear when he arrives ... congrats to VET who showed why he is on the top of the roster. BUT with a very good pace, WEB good with second place but horrible start as normal.

MSC, very happy with and for you :) Perfect race, pace and strategy !

So the current weather forecasts say that there will be no rain in Spa at all which wil be interesting for the race. As MSC starts from last row he will not have spray that holds him back from driving into the points ... it will be hard but I am sure we will see him going through the field. Hope he will not have encounters with KOB or PET !

My guess for the result is

1. HAM
2. VET
3. WEB
...
6. ROS
...
8. MSC

lets see how it ends up, it will be a great afternoon.

Well done Seb, wish you all the best for the race tomorrow. First time I saw Schumacher on TV he had already spun off because one of his wheels came off ?!? Wow I thought that Mercedes is at least able to fit the damn wheels on the car ... very sad.

I did some shots on the 50 anniversary of the karting club where Michael Schumacher, his brother Ralf, Nick Heidfeld as well as the reigning F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel started their careers. There are some more pictures on my flickr page. It was a really good day with a lot of very good race action, I have to admit that it was never clear to me how cool competitive karting really is.
