I came back rushing to watch the F1 Race Live after visiting my sisters place at Kunigal (90Kmsa from Bangalore). My bro drove really fast on the way back coz, no one affords to miss first race of the season.

Luckily for me, the race was about to start when I turned on the television. The race was pretty close. Fernando Alonso mounted a lot of pressure on Felippe Massa. I pity Massa coz despite his effort, he lost a lot of time in the Pits as his rear wheel got jammed.

Later on it was the battle for position between Montoya & Button. What was really surprising is that inspite of starting at the botton of the grid Railkkonen climbed up 10-15 places to reach Position 6 .

Then it was all down to strategy, it was mostly a 2 stop race for most of them except Kimi who started with brim full of fuel.

The interesting aspect of todays race was there were not many retirements(Just 4 of them). Renault Gambled with their pit strategy to bring Alonso ahead of Schumacher.

From there on there was no stopping for Alonso.Micheal Couldnt do anything except trailing behind his car.


Alonso clinched his first title of the season, followed by Schumi and Kimi on the podium. Kimi exhibited an excellent run for McLaren who had a horrible weekend.Apart for these drivers who already are in the limelight, it was good to see the rookie perform extremely well. It was Keke Rosberg's Son Nico Rosberg clinching 2 points for Williams Cosworth behind his team mate Mark Webber.Schumi's team mate Massa finished 9th

You can find the final results here.

Im looking forward for the Malaysian Grand Prix which will be held at Sepang next week. The good news is Ferrari is back with a bang.
