Well, THAT was interesting...

1237am, I'm not liveblogging the Chinese Grand Prix, but I HAD to post something about what I just saw.

On the way to the grid for pre-race festivities, Christijan Albers just ran over Slappy Schumacher, when Schumi was warming his tires (I think). Mad scramble in the pitlane to get the backup cars up and running!

But, boy, did Albers get some air after driving directly OVER the left-rear of the Ferrari... and the fragility of the cars was shown quite clearly. The Minardi's rear half looked like it was twisted 30degrees to the left in relation to, say, the cockpit until it came back down to earth. Yeek!

1 Yeah, the trouble is that half of the teams are in fuel saving mode and others are trying to warm their tyres and breaks (Coultard's quote)

2 Lap 10 and did someone snore?

3 Yes, that was interesting. I'm betting Slappy wishes he'd just slept through the 2005 season.

4 Not me! I wound up snoring around lap 30, I think it was... 1 hour, 45 minutes after the VCR started recording.

I'll be finishing the race up and posting the F1 UPDATE! later today.
