India on the F1 map

Fisichella

Fisichella

It all began with pole position on Saturday. Little did anyone expect Saturday’s results let alone Sunday’s! With Fisichella winning pole position on Saturday, it was still not obvious that he would deliver on Sunday. But what a race!

The first couple of minutes at Spa were just a preview to the action that was to follow. With Romain Grosjean coming in the way of Button’s race and with Hamilton and Jaime Alguersuari bearing the consequences of the crash, the race was all about the action right from the start.

Force India, for 2 years now had placed itself at the tail end of every standing. As if to say ‘enough is enough’ Fisichella put on a show that is bound to go down in history.

If you ask me, Fisichella had a real chance to stand on the podium. Raikonnen’s comfort with the Belgian circuit and KERS put him at an undeniable advantage. As for Fisichella’s win, Force India proved a lot of people wrong on Sunday and I have a feeling this is just the beginning!

For the Ferrari fans, it was just wonderful to see the red car up ahead for the first time this season.

2009 definitely has been a season of so many things unexpected. I can only imagine what the last couple of races have in store. As always I am still excited about what Singapore is going to unfold!

Kick Every Racers asS

Jenson Button has proved that having the best car is the ticket to success. How much does the driver really matter?

Well if the driver doesn’t matter then why are World Champions paid so much? Why are they coveted and sought after? Get a decent driver and a fast car and that should do right? The race stats this year seems to tilt the argument in the favour of the constructor!

Hamilton said that the KERS power boost system helped beat Raikkonen and Webber at Hungary. He admitted that with KERS “anything can happen”.

Ferrari and McLaren have been constantly pursuing KERS and Costa, Ferrari’s technical director admits that it has helped improve lap timings. Ferrari’s improved performance at Monaco’s street circuit definitely brings their hopes with Valencia around the corner as well as the much talked about night race at Singapore.

Singapore has much to offer this season. Not only is it the thrill of the circuit, Alonso’s win last year and its many mishaps has a lot of ardent fans, me included looking forward to what it could bring this year.

Will KERS change the course of fate? Will the streets expanded circuits, enhanced for over-taking bring about an optimum use of KERS. I guess we will only have to wait with bated breath!
