Let’s try something different, an english blog post…
In the land of the rising sun, Japan lies a Suzuka International Racing Course. A faboulous track to drive in video games. Last weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix was a disaster for Scuderia Ferrari, once again. Sebastian Vettel had a spark plug problem and he had to retire early, which was a famous nail in the coffin for his world championship dreams.
Lewis Hamilton won his fourth race since summer break without any problems and his team-mate Valtteri Bottas sacrified his podium spot to help the undisputed number one driver of ”silver arrow” squad. Red Bull Racing is catching Ferrari in the constructor’s championship and the Austrian team had a wonderful gp, with second and a third place courtesy of Max Verstappen and ever so happy Daniel Ricciardo. What about the Finnish drivers? Well Valtteri Bottas and Kimi Räikkönen just drive, they didn’t do anything special. Except Kimi passed few drivers in the opening laps. They had a grid penalties do the gearbox changes, so their chances for a good race went on saturday.
Hamilton has a 59 point lead to Vettel in the drivers standings, so championsip battle is over. The brit from Stevenage is to good, the only way you can probably win him is in the video games. Congratulations once again for your fourth world championship Mr. Hamilton, would you like to have a cup of tea?
Next race is in the challenging Circuit of the Americat (COTA), located in Austin, Texas. Luckily i don’t have to put a alarm clock to ring.
During the two week break in f1, i can enjoy some old races from Senna and Schumacher era and watch some NHL hockey. Why? Cause i’m an hockey journalist – sort of.
