It doesn’t get better than that – four of my favourite F1 drivers finishing in the top four.
Majestic drive from Nico Rosberg, a long overdue win for him. Bravo!
Sorry for Kimi, nice to see him back on the circuit.
A couple of other incidents at the Chinese Grand Prix gave me a surge of schadenfreude and a great deal of satisfaction. I’m probably not the only one.
… for Christian Horner to give Mark Webber the respect he’s entitled to?
They give him a duff car, so he qualifies 18th on the grid.
Driving his heart out and his balls off, Webber finishes 3rd, just behind Sebastian, who is hammered into second place by an inspired Hamilton.
Interviewed after the race, a misty-eyed Horner praises Sebastian for several minutes. And then – perhaps somebody out of view held up a cue card? – he remembers that the team actually have two drivers. He mumbles a few words about Webber with all the enthusiasm of a man offered a plate of cold porridge. :?
I was reading Andrew Benson’s F1 blog this morning about the Red Bull fiasco, and out of the 230 or so comments, support is wholeheartedly with Webber for the shameful treatment he had at the hands of Christian Horner.
Here’s my favourite comment taken from the thread:

Did Christian Horner once lose out to an Australian love rival?
Or is it just the case that when originally signed, the Red Bull hierarchy mistakenly thought that Webber was Austrian?!”
