March 20, 2007

Programmed to dislike red cars

Last weekend we had just broken up for the Easter holidays. The flat had planned for a while to go to the Corinne Bailey Rae concert at the Birmingham Carling Apollo. The evening was quite pleasant, and everyone had a great time.

After we got back home, the boys stayed up til 5am watching the first race of the Formula 1 2007 season. We’ve been pretty excited for a while, with Schumacher gone it there is a lot of new talent on the grid. With retrospect, it now seems like it was a good time for Schumacher to have retired – unfortunately as a Ferrari Ambassador, he’s been forced to drive ugly Fiat vans on TV adverts – very uncool.

Finally the UK has a hero in the form of Lewis Hamilton. As you can see from our “Expert F1 Predictions” most of us expect Button to not win at all this year. Hamilton would have been impressive even if he came 8th and managed to stay within 0.2secs of Alonso, and I hope he continues to perform well under pressure. He seems to be unfazed by it all which is excellent. (Heikki Kovalainen on the other hand, seemed to make the rookie mistakes, which he is of course more than entitled to do). The race itself was interesting but uneventful, with only Coulthard’s unorthodox overtaking manourve providing some excitment. He decided to park his car on top of Alex Wurz.

Now I’ve always been a Kimi Raikkonen fan. The dude is fast, fearless, and I bet the Top Gear’s Stig is a mould of him. But when he crossed the line first in his Ferrari, I just felt indifferent. However much I like him, I couldn’t like the fact that a red Ferrari had won. The impulse of the latter was stronger. Paul said it was because I’ve been programmed to dislike Ferraris for the last ten years!
