F1 Australian GP

Yep, that's how I spent my St. Patrick's day evening, nerding it up at Kelly's house with her and her husband and another guy from work watching the F1 race on her TV and playing with her little mop of a dog, Kodak.

Just a few thoughts from the first race:
  • Lewis Hamilton is damn impressive in his first race. Whenever a top team starts a rookie you always wonder what they're thinking but now and then they really do find someone who can start at full speed.

  • The new Renault colour scheme is beautiful.

  • Honda's no-sponsor earth paint job looks kind of bad, sadly, since the intensions are good. Still, slapping an environmental theme on the single least fuel-efficient vehicle they build is probably not the best place to start a public image makeover.

  • I still find it hilarious that Honda's "B-team", Super Aguri, out qualified both Honda cars. I was hoping Super Aguri would get at least a point in this race but they finished just out of the points.

  • BMW are doing really well this year so far, I hope they rise up to become a top team, if only to show that the base that Sauber built is a strong one.
I can't wait for the next race in a couple of weeks. It's really great to have a couple of friends around to watch races with.
