Thumbs up F1: Chinese Grand Prix

The last race of the season has come and probably it will be the last race we will be hearing to the V10 scream.

It was an interesting qualifying session with both Renaults in the front row of the grid and surprisingly the Mclaens behing them.
Renaults may be light on fuel loads but they seem to be close to Mclarens in terms of pace. Iam looking forward to this race to be an interesting one as the last one.

What better way to end the season than a McLaren 1 - 2?
Hopefully, Monty will keep his cool.

Hoping to see a Kimi victory and hopefully see Mclaren with the constructors title. Did any one see Narain's qualifying lap?

Renault World Champions. Was a pretty boring race infact but Narain had a horrifying crash and its good to see hes ok. JPMs exit from the race sealed Mclaren's fate.

Goodbye 2005 and V10s

Looking forward to 2006

Damn it gets boring between October and March

Thumbs up

Alonso had quite a dominant victory this time and he kept his promise of winning the WCC. Renault was quicker than Mclaren and Kimi also admitted that his car was not quick enough. I think Monty could have avoided that drain cover and made it a closer fight between Renault and Mclaren. But Iam happy that Renault has won the championship as I had predicted
It will be very boring till the 2006 starts off with the new teams and new driver lineups and hopefully we see Narain next season.

Despite having a few climaxes, the GP wasn't too exciting overall. Damn it, Mclaren lost the WCC too! Oh well, hopefully things will turn around next year.

Haha, it was hilarious how Schumacher bumped into ALbers before even making it to the grid and later spun off. Oh, the timing was great :lol.

Bad luck for Montoya/Mclaren. How unlucky do you have to be to have a drain-cover, on a track bulit less than 2 years ago, end your race.

As for our man, only thing to say is that he made quite an impact on (presumably) his last F1 GP.
