Hi

This weekend's F1 is at Indianapolis and I am just one hour from there. But unfortunately, I don't have a ticket. I feel pity for my self. My room mate is going there with his friends. I am giving him my Camcorder to make me some video. Atleast I can say my handycam has been there....Will post some pics once he returns back.

Hats off the Sato...also would Barichelo actually have overtaken Schumacher if he had the chance??

yup booring it is lol..

Montoya being disqualified..
"But with just 15 laps to go before the end of the race the luckless Colombian was black flagged for what was described as a breach of article 85 of the FIA sporting regulations - joining the race in a spare car after the driver had not left the grid within 15 seconds of the start."

I think it was sick the way Ferrari didnt allow Barrichello to overtake Schumacher. Was an exciting race nevertheless, and am glad to hear that Ralf is okay but for being a little shaken up.

You guys should have heard Stratos' comments during the race. Had us all in splits!!

There is absolutely nothing sick about it. This happens in almost every form of motorsport. It's all about team work and team rules.

Barichello is the second driver for ferarri and he has to live with that.

Well, the no.2 role is fine when there is a close championship battle at stake, and Ferrari have openly mentioned that. But it was for everyone to see what happened in Austria (2002 was it?). Schumacher himself regretted having forced Barrichello into second place before the finish line.

1. 2004 has seen Schumacher have his best season start ever!
2. Barrichello on fresh tyres was far faster than Schumacher who was struggling for grip through the corners.
3. The two sharp chops that Schumy gave Barri were totally uncalled for. I only wish someone like Montoya was there in that tight spot and Schumacher had to cut him like that.
4. Barrichello has supported Schumacher on more than a million occassions. Schumacher is faster on 95% of the days, but those 5% when its Barris day....well he deserves that victory.

I had a whole load of fun watching the race with fellow members at Panchgani. The result was rather disappointing and Montoya's disqualification sucked. Both McLarens finished in the points and Ralf is fine - that's good! Oh yes, Sato finished the race for a change and that too on the podium. Come on everybody, sing the Honda song! Stratos, lead the way please.

Say your the team manager and your number 1 driver is going for an all time record that probably will remain unbeaten in a very very long time.
And then you have a second driver who hasnt had any win.

What do you do?
