Better late than never... well perhaps
I enjoyed that Grand Prix, some good drives, some decent racing and Martin Brundle at the top of his game. The whole becoming Pedro de la Rosa thing was very funny, also the "pimp my hans" comment was cool. All in all a pleasing afternoons entertainment.
In a shameless attempt to increase the number of comments on my blog, rather than discussing the reasons for who getting what points – it's pretty much the same as the last few races anyway – I'm putting on a little quiz, each answer counts for 1 point in this championship! Probably more appealing is being smug at knowing so much and getting to show off, here goes:
10pts Fernando Alonso: Where is Fernando from? (For god's sake don't just say Spain)
8pts Pedro de la Rosa: Before Bahrain when and where did Pedro last score championship points?
6pts Christian Klien: How many Austrian World Champions have there been?
5pts Kimi Raikkonen: How many words has Kimi spoken in his entire life?
4pts Jarno Trulli: Which Grand Prix (including year) did Jarno first finish on the podium?
3pts Michael Schumacher: What are Schumacher's kids called?
2pts Felipe Massa: Which series did Massa race in immediately prior to becoming an F1 driver
