F1: Alonso wins (again!) Melbourne GP 2006

Sunday, April 02, 2006

22 drivers, 12 finishers, ten retirements, four Safety Cars and only one winner... no surprise: Renault's Fernando Alonso. What a chaotic Australian GP!

Fernando Alonso won the race by less than two seconds from the McLaren of Kimi Raikkonen. Ralf Schumacher was third, scoring his first podium of 2006 for Toyota. BMW-Sauber's Nick Heidfeld was 4th while Giancarlo Fisichella capitalised on a last lap, second last corner blow-up from Jenson Button to snatch 5th place. Meanwhile, Ferrari had a bad weekend after both Massa and Michael crashed out. I reckon Michael crashed out in a spetacular fashion after he pushing his car beyond its' capability.

Ohh.. Kimi Raikkinen never fail to crack me up during press conference. This is what he said:

Yeah at one of the restarts I overtook Jenson and I locked up the inside wheel at turn one I still managed to stay ahead of him through corners one and three but fortunately even with the vibration and a front tyre the car was still quite quick and I was able to keep up with Fernando but then suddenly I think we lost part of the endplate because of the vibration I was quite slow at that point but luckily during the safety car period we had enough time to change the nose after that I think the speed was there in the car to really fight for victory but my little mistake cost quite a lot in the end and also there were some lapped people always between me and Fernando but the car is quick if we get a proper race without any problems I think we should be able to fight for wins and then we will see what happens.

Yeah.. all that in one sentence.. no kidding!
