I love a good driver story in F1, and Hamilton is it this year. I predict an incident and subsequent blowup with Alonso later in the season, and a move to rival Ferrari next year for Lewis

I'm really looking forward to the Grand Prix du Canada at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in beautiful Montreal this weekend. Lot's of breaking but it's fast and there is a couple of passing spots. The outcome could be interesting with DNFs due to brake issues. Here's some headlines -

Toyota befuddled by Ralf`s form

LOL...ummmm.....'cause he sucks!

'McLaren drivers free to race'

Right. So there's not team orders and no number one driver. An F1 first!

Mika: 'I Warned Kimi Not To Join Ferrari'

Well it was damned if you do damned if you don't but it's strange though, 'cause Alonso got it right.

Canadian sell-out

This weekend's Canadian Grand Prix is a sell-out according to the race's press officer. Normand Prieur, the Montreal race's press officer, said in a statement: "Since 5:00 pm, the ticket office is no longer taking orders."

Last year over 330,000 spectators visited the Gilles Villeneuve circuit during the course of the race weekend.

Hamilton.

First time at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, first pole. This guy is the real deal

In other Montreal GP news, they had a pretty good U2 cover band playing Crescent St. to a couple thousand people. It was pretty pimp, especially when the skies opened up during Streets and then Bad

They play Crescent St. during Grand Prix week every year. Too bad I wasn't able to make it this time.

So Hamilton did it and in Montreal no less!

How about Sato passing Alonso with 3 laps to go?

Wow, spectacular race. As pleased as I am for Hamilton, I'm much happier about Robert Kubica surviving his truly horrific accident.

Now, on to the greatest racecourse in the world.

The fastest cars in racing on their fastest course! What could be better?

O.K. - maybe a little bigger crowd, like Montreal. But we truly get a treat here in the USGP seeing the cars at full speed!

I will be in turn four this year! Last year I sat right across from the garages.
