The Spanish GP has just been completed and well its ... yeah Schumi again. He got his 75th career victory in his 200th GP. Wonder what records hes gonna break by the time he retires. Well back to the race and man what a start!!!!! Trulli was absolutely mind blowing . Amazing getway.. Kept Schumi behind him for quite a while but then the Ferrari pits at its best yet again. Honda again showed what theyre made of with a brilliant 5th for Sato. Renaults did well . Montoya blew it for Williams and Mclaren??? No points for them and both the cars were lapped by Schumi ... Frustrating for Kimi..

Well next is the glitz and glamour of Monaco so lets see how it goes....

Cheers

it was indeed an amazing race. The Ferrari team had infact made a monopoly of winning .... the chance of Ferrari wining is same as the chance of a Minardi or a Jaguar not completing the race.! Schumi is indeed a gr8 sportsman.. a true world..errr universal champion! Hats of to u Schumi!

phenomenal start by Jarno..
5 of us friends watch each race together.. fan following is pretty evenly distributed..
Ferrari, Williams, McLaren.. and me for Renault.. esp. Jarno !
and i was SCREAMING at the start.. WOW !

realistically.. the best result Renault cud have hoped for..
so that really feels good..

the Ferrari's are still a class apart.. hope Renault begin to narrow the gap..

I agree with you Hatari. Trullis start was out of this world . Its great to note the driving talent of Jarno despite not having launch control. He really made a quick getaway and again like last time Schumi had to take the lead after the first stop. No question about Ferrari who had a cracked exhaust and it won even though Ross Brawn thought they might not finish the race

F1 has become like the Indycar Racing i used to play on the computer a few years ago. You set the speed of your opponents to 80% and go on and blitz them on the track. In the process u lap the last placed guys a couple of times and the chaps up ahead atleast once. All that even if u have spun and banged the wall a couple of times. You r totally indestructible.
Same with Ferrari and Schumi. All the other chaps seem to be at 3/4th their potential. It was good to see a Renault leading Ferrari for a few laps. But after the first pit stop, Renault began to look stationary compared to the Ferraris speed.
Last year most of F1's observers were predicting a walkover for Schumacher over the others. Thou it was a tuff fite till the end, Schumi did eventually win the championship. This year the same observers were predicting a tuff fite for Schumi and look what he does. Kathakali over the observers and all the other teams hopes in the first five races itself.
