UNC_Samurai: Which Williams driver will scrape the Wall of Champions first?


The answer looks like it was almost Bruno.

Hamilton vs Montreal
 
2012-06-10 03:36:53 PM  
Way to go Perez!!!!

Fantastic race today. Fantastic. Not a huge Hamilton fan, but he certainly worked for it.
 
2012-06-10 03:38:27 PM  
7 races.

7 different winners.

GJ, Lewis.

/Grosjean and Perez round out the podium

Ferrari messing up a mid-race strategy call? You don't say ...

Watching this and the pocono 400, man f1 really isn't fun to watch anymore. Waiting to watch a couple passes on the last five laps just isn't entertaining. It's too easy to predict the outcome after watching qualifying. It's almost like watching the worlds fastest funeral procession.

A beautiful performance by Hamilton, shame about Button's car not being up to spec.

It was satisfying to see Ferrari's gamble cost them from first down to fifth.

Grosjean continues his podium-or-bust streak.

Bruno and Vettel avoided leaving too much of their car on the Wall of Champions.

And Michael Schumacher's Farewell Tour remains bittersweet and frustrating to watch.

With the way this season has progressed, we may actually see an exciting race in Valencia in two weeks.

/an 8 AM start, so it's time for another Bojangles and F1 Sunday morning in the Samurai household on the 24th

Considering how much the F1 traditionalists are complaining about tire wear making the races too unpredictable, you may cease your trolling at anytime.

Hasn't been in many, many years. Same as NASCAR. It's unfortunate.

I don't think that anyone would have predicted Hamilton, Grosjean, and Perez...

There's also this year's German GP, which will take place on what's left of the Hockenheimring. The Tilkemcision sucked.

Damn, forgot there would be a thread.

Canada never fails to deliver. Nice to see Red Bull making a strategic balls-up for a change, even if Grosjean and Perez on the podium did seem slightly artificial. Good for them, though.

I would never have predicted a ham groper. You normally try not to think about those sorts of things.

Twitch Boy: I would never have predicted a ham groper. You normally try not to think about those sorts of things.

Nicole was at the circuit, so I suppose a Ham Groper was inevitable. Especially now that he won.
 
2012-06-10 04:40:38 PM  
three handled ham covered groping credenza?
 
2012-06-11 12:56:06 PM  
Just because it is true doesn't mean I'm trolling. Had to wait 65 laps for anything interesting to happen! Plus, is predicting hammy on the podium really all that surprising or difficult?
 
2012-06-12 12:44:14 AM  
Are you really saying NASCAR at Pocono was more entertaining? They had to shorten that race 100 miles so many were so bored and the teams were hating it! F1 in Canada was brilliant. The pit strategy alone was amazing to watch with the tire strategies. It was a great battle for the win by three cars built in two different countries with three different engine and suspension
designs. Much more exciting than seeing two "Camry" taxi cab spec cars with identical engines, mandated transmission and rear gearing running on their spec hard tires!
