F1 Practice: Montreal 2008!

Men with nerves of steel and lightning reflexes.  Multi-million dollar machines packed full of the highest of high-tech equipment.  Incredibly powerful engines screaming at deafening volume.

But enough about the Duckford AirFest, which began this afternoon (look for USAF Thunderbird pictures tomorrow and Sunday!).  We're here to discuss today's 2nd Practice session at Montreal. 

*pause*

Well, that about covers it.  I wish I could say there was excitement a-plenty, but there really kinda wasn't.  Sure, I'll mention that Felipe Massa's Ferrari rolled to a stop with a steering wheel flashing enough error messages to look like the legendary blinkenlights, and that Robert Kubica had fast lap until the last minute or so of the session (odd for a BMW to be fast in practice), and that Lewis Hamilton had to dodge a marmot in the Casino Hairpin, but other than that?  Nothing.  Lots of high speed, lots of frantic braking (and loads of brake dust billowing out of the wheels), but... meh.

Quals tomorrow.

Oh, nearly forgot: rain is expected all weekend.  *evil grin*

1 If it's raining, maybe Kubica can pull out a win.
