Weekend roundup – 25th March 2012 #F1 #NASCAR #Indycar

#F1 – So another pole for Lewis and a front row lock out for McLaren with Schumi showing good form to take 3rd on the grid, but that’s not how the race worked out in Sepang. Given how bad the Ferrari is supposed to be who would have thought that with two races done Alonso would have one win and be leading the championship?

The couple of problems that Lewis had seemed to have a disproportionate impact on his race and it was a shame that JB got himself into trouble early on and spoiled his chances and this could have been win number two for him otherwise.

Good stuff from Perez though and we don’t see any conspiracy in him settling for second after that wild moment with a few laps to go. Maldonado binned a good finish in Australia trying to get by Alonso at the end and it would have been easy for Perez to do the same here.

So not the championship table we might have expected at this stage, but an interesting start to the season.

#NASCAR – Another pole for Denny Hamlin at Fontana, but he lost the lead on lap one to his team mate the younger ugly brother. Smoke judged it right at the end though, having got the lead he held into the rain and picked up the win when the race was called with 71 laps still on the board.

So what is going on with the #48 and that penalty appeal? If the car was right why leave the fine in place? If it was wrong why overturn the suspensions and the docked points? Doesn’t make any sense to us.

#IndyCar – And we’re off for another season with a run around the streets of St Pete with Will Power taking pole as Penske locked out the front row. Horrible looking cars, but I suppose that we’ll get used to them: it isn’t the first time that the look of cars has changed and won’t be the last.

Down in sunny Florida Will couldn’t turn pole into a win though and ended up a disappointing 7th well back from winner and Penske team mate Helio after the wrong call on fuel strategy. F1 refugee Rubens was back in 17th on his debut and didn’t really feature.

weekend round up – 4th September 2011 #NASCAR #Indycar #DTM

#NASCAR Rain stopped play in Atlanta and they run tomorrow.

#IndyCar Will Power dominates at Baltimore, Oriol Servia runs 32 laps on old tyres to finish second and Tony Kanaan pulls all the way through from well down to third, even after a real scare in practice when car failure saw him get airborne over the back of Helio; one major shunt. The title race down to 5 points as Dario comes home third.

#DTM action at Brands Hatch where they do run in the wet, Martin Tomczyk produced a masterful performance to win his third race of the season and slip back into the title race by just a single point.
