F1 Breakdown!!!!

with 3 comments

Well race fans what an opening F1 Grand Prix! We here at Gadget Freaks would sum it up in one word…..Carnage! Lewis Hamilton led the race from start to finish but it was what was going on in his wake that had the pundits gasping in awe and disbelief. Massa was first to go spinning at the first corner exit and hitting the barrier. He limped back to the pits for a new nose cone while fellow Ferrari pilot Kimi Raikonnen was carving his way through the field after starting from way down the grid.

However the day was to finish in disaster for both Ferraris as Massa crashed into David Coulthard whose car seemed to implode and fall apart. Massa later retired and Raikonnen also retired but gained one point due to the heavy DNF (Did Not Finish) rate. In fact only around 6 cars actually took the chequered flag with the Melbourne circuit once again proving to be a chellenge for both car and driver.

So at the finish it was Hamilton a clear winner with Nick Heidfeld second and Nico Rosberg ( son of former F1 ace Keke Rosberg) getting his first podium and the first for the Williams team in a long time. Stay tuned as the F1 circus heads to Sepang in Malaysia this weekend. Let’s hope that the safety car doesn’t get in almost as many laps as the F1 cars this race!!!

  1. Raikonnen went of the track at least 3 times and that damaged his car, else he could have easily finished 3rd. His Ferrari Certainly have the pace.

  2. Yeah Kimi was very quick but he looked to stretch his rubber way too far. Should be a great battle this season between Lewis, Massa and Kimi. Really hoping to see Force India doing well this year. Would be great to see Narian Karthikeyan getting a race seat next year.
