That was an interesting race. Kimi and his useless attempts to overtake and then braking down in the end. Just like his teammate Massa.

So many drivers didn't make it to the finishline. I was amazed. I felt bad for Bourdais he could have finished his first Formula 1 race in fourth place.

Not much happening up front. Hamilton had a very comfy race. Interesting to see a Williams on the podium again and Heidfeld in his BMW Sauber. I would love to see the Williams team win races again!

Alonso managed to finish in fourth place with some hard work and a bit of luck. What happened to Kovalainen there? I heard he accidently pressed the speedlimiter button or something.

By the way, Heidfeld looked really exhausted just before the guys went on the podium for the ceremony. He's getting old

Wow, BBC got the rights back to televise F1 at it's traditional home starting next year. ITV, who've been showing it the past 12 years, said it was a commercial decision on their part. Murray Walker when hearing the news said there is more to this than meets the eye.

What I'm worried about is Canada's coverage now. Canadian sports channel TSN, who show the ITV feed, will have to make a new deal with BBC. They used to show it when it was the BBC so I'm sure it's not a problem. I wonder what will happen with Brundle, Allen, and Louise. I hope Brundle and Louise at least get a job with BBC. I reckon with Allen's unpopularity he will be out of a job.

Speaking of Murray, check out these highlights -

That's bull. I love ITV's commentary. Brundle and Allen are terrific, though I HATE Louise.

We get the ITV feed here too

This Mosely thing is disturbing. I think he admitted as much that it was him in the vid. He hasn't denied it anyway and the anger against him is gaining so I think his days are numbered.

A leading person from an F1 team said, "It’s a credibility and judgment issue – fantasising about one of the greatest tragedies of the 20th century is obviously completely inappropriate.”

Better details of the story from Time - http://www.time.com/time/world/artic...728032,00.html

Grand Prix of Bahrein: Race Results

1 F. Massa Ferrari
2 K. Räikkönen Ferrari
3 R. Kubica BMW
4 N. Heidfeld BMW
5 H. Kovalainen McLaren
6 J. Trulli Toyota
7 M. Webber Red Bull
8 N. Rosberg Williams
9 T. Glock Toyota
10 F. Alonso Renault

BMW turns out to be a really strong team with steady results. Hamilton didn't score any points at all this race and Alonso wasn't up to much either this race. Massa did a good job and Kubica still managed to stay on the podium eventhough he couldn't hold on to first place after scoring his first poleposition. Oh well, maybe next time...

Kubica, sadly, was never going to win. Ferrari and McLaren are still sreets ahead.

Sadly as well Webber's never going to win a race, I've realised, and will always be around the 6th mark. A podium from a bit of luck is the best he can hope for I'm afraid,

Well, it's shaping up to be an interesting season, thus far, with three teams—Ferrari, McLaren and BMW in the hunt.

Nice win by Massa on the weekend.

Do you speak french?? I'm gonna look like a right fool he and assume you do, and ask if this line makes sense.

pour le monde pas pour la guerre

its meant to mean for the world, not for the war, so shouldn't it be:

pour le monde ne pas pour la guerre? what does the pas mean? and anyone know what the y or the upside down ? means in spanish?


i hope you learn/speak french.


Gotta feel for Sato and Davidson. shame they never got a real shot.

Yes I speak French. I'm tri-lingual, with French being my second language, and Italian being the third.

the sentence, "pour le monde pas pour la guerre" means, "for the world, not for war", hence the word "pas" means "not". My grasp of French grammar is not the best, but I know that this is the correct translation. In some instances, "ne" means "do", like in the sentence "Je ne sais pas" ( I do not know). But your use of "ne" is wrong, however.

And from my understanding, the y in Spanish means "and"

Ah... okay. See some French teacher at our school told us that "ne pas" means not.

I'm learning Italian at the moment, and I've got an ok grip on it, though it's very hard to see myself ever being fluent. The oral and listening components are where I fall down.

Actually, I may have erred a bit. "ne pas" means "don't", I believe. Sorry, it was 1 o'clock in the morning when I responded.

Don't give up. French and Italian aren't easy, simply because there are so-ooo many exceptions and rules, but once you learn one, the other will be easier to understand.

Oh, agreed. I can actually understand a bunch of French stuff, just because a lot of it is similar to Italian.

The reason I'm not flying is because when I have to speak, it doesn't just roll of my tongue, if you know what I mean, I have to think about what I want to say in English, translate, then order it in my head.
