Fists Waving and Lots of Fun at European Grand Prix Quaifying

Giancarlo Fisichella was quite the sight berating Jacques Villeneuve.  Fisichela stormed into the BMW Sauber pit lane between the last two sessions of qualifying and looked like he wanted Jacques to step out of his car and go at it mano-a-mano.  He was still fuming quite a while afterwards, and it appears that the stewards heard him…

Malaysian Grand Prix Proves Exciting but Bad Luck and a Red Bull Strike Kimi Raikkonen

Sorry for being so late to post about this, but it has been quite a week.  After all, the Malaysin Grand Prix was on at 2am Sunday morning here in Toronto.  After going to bed a 5am posting to the blog was replaced by family obligations, which took up the rest of my day.  Monday arrives and the…
