San Marino GP: A race not in reality

So I remember watching Alonso and Schumacher in the 2005 battling for the win of the San Marino race. I was in a cafe in Barcelona surrouned by Catalonians and Germans rooting for their favorite driver, I'll let you guess which ones. Definitely a hilight of my European trip, but back to racing.

Last year's race gave reason to believe that Ferrari was back. We all know now that Ferrari was no where near the pace of Renault or McLaren. San Marino was such an aberation that everyone that wanted to believe Ferrari had the speed kept point to that race.

So this race Schumacher is ahead and Alonso couldn't get past him. Where was McLaren? Are we to believe they suddenly are slower than Ferrari? I think not. After some mixed results this season so far for Ferrari, are we to believe they have suddenly got the pace back? I think Ferrari just knows this track like the back of their hand and know the best tire for their car on that track. To me, Ferrari is still 3rd and maybe even behind Honda. Let's see what happens in Nurburg in the next race. I bet we will see Renault and McLaren in front.

I think if you took Ferrari out of the race, the results were typical with many of the other races results this year.

Suprises

  • Ruben's started third!

  • Disappointments

  • Ruben's was 5th after the start and never had the speed.
  • The lollipop man for Honda sent Button with the fuel rig still plugged in an not a hit of moment from the refuelers. There was no reason to send him.
