Ferrari is back with a bang with Alonso leading 1-2 finish at the start of the 2010 season with Massa finishing second and Hamilton third. Vettel who lead most part of the race slowly dropped to 4th position but held onto it thwarting Rosberg in Mercedes who finished 5th ahead of team mate Schumacher in other Mercedes. Button tried hard to take the 6th position but Schumacher kept his cool and Button finished 7th ahead of Webber in the other Red Bull. Luizzi got the points for Force India finishing 9th. Force India looks good this season and we can expect them to score more points in the coming seasons. Other Indian in F1- Chandhok didn’t seem to be on the track. So Ferrari starting off with a 1-2 finish looks like they are back to their winning ways. After snatching the lead from Vettel, Alonso cruised ahead taking a 16sec lead from Massa. Schumacher needs to get back to his winning ways but Mercedes doesn’t look that faster when compared to the Ferraris.
F1 caravan will now be moving to Australia with the Australian GP to be held from March 26-28.
I hardly was concerned about the Race results last year, I used to just glance through the news paper for the results and read the report there. There’s wasn’t much action/competition with some Brawn dominating through out the season and with lots of technical issues, teams boycotting and all. But with the return of Michael Schumacher with his old Team Boss- Ross Brawn under whom he won his 7 driver championships and with an Indian driver- Chandhok this season is going to be interesting. Michael fans are eager to see their driver give a tough competition to the likes of Button, Hamilton, Massa, Alonso. Also Hamilton will be for the first time racing alongside Michael so its going to be something new for him 🙂 And Mercedes GP up against the likes of Ferrari, McLaren, Williams makes it even more challenging.
So watch out for the action over the weekend when F1 2010 Season kicks off with Bahrain GP.
Yet another great day for Ferrari with their drivers finishing on the podium once again but this time separated by Hamilton in McLaren who finished Second ahead of Raikkonen in Ferrari. Massa took the chequered flag to put himself firmly back in championship contention. Hamilton took second place, less than a second ahead of Raikkonen. Kubica finished fourth ahead of BMW Sauber team mate Nick Heidfeld, who made up four places during the race to finish fifth. Alonso took sixth place for Renault ahead of Mark Webber for Red Bull and Nico Rosberg for Williams. Continue reading “Race Results- Turkish Grand Prix, 2008”
