F1 Practice: MONTREAL! (UPDATED W/PHOTOS!)

Well, if practice sessions are anything to go by, Sunday's race should be a doozy! Consider these happenings today:

1) Fernando Alonso going through the chicanes looking like he's auditioning for "The Fast and the Furious: Montreal Drift".
...turn right to go left, son.

2) Heikki Koveleineninnienineinninnie making a tire explode in a fireball by kissing the wall.
AIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

3) Mark Webber brakechecking Scott Speed after practice ended, causing Speed to ram into the back of the RedBull... and Webber then blaming the whole incident on Speed while saying "I was going slowly but he probably had his iPod going as well."
Hit from behind.  *snicker*  I said 'behind.'

4) Toyota pulling their cars from the track after Jarno Trulli's car had a suspension failure... on a straightaway, without hitting anything!
A little too much camber there...

5) We nearly had a Montreal Marmot Massacre. One of the fuzzy beasts ran across the width of the back straightway as Ralfy-boy came barrelling down on him at 190mph. Ralf obviously spotted him, as he drifted left. The marmot, on the other hand, never stopped running until it spotted the Toyota flashing by an inch in front of his face.
*SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!!!!!!!*
At which point, it became obvious that marmots, too, have carbon-disc brakes. As the Legendary Announce Team mentioned, it'd be hell cleaning that out of the radiators...

6) Finally, I'd be remiss if I neglected to mention the antics of Adrian Sutil. I thought the Blue Angels were good, but that was NOTHING!
I believe I can flyyyyyyyyyyy...
See what happens when you blow the chicanes? Amazingly, nothing obviously broke upon landing...

1 Sorry I missed that. Sounds like fun. Maybe Toyota ought to sign the marmot. ;-)
