First night race… over 1600 lights used to light up the track…

Lap 1; Massa leads… Hamilton right after him followed by Räikkönen! Vettel and Glock pass Kovalainen…Alonso made it to P12.

Lap 2; Hamilton set the fastest lap and a reply shows the between Kubica and Kovalainen that caused the fin to lose 2 positions…

Lap 4; Massa takes the fastest lap from Hamilton…

Lap 6; new fastest lap for Massa… Räikkönen is over 8sec behind so that’s almost 6sec behind Hamilton! 😦 … and yellow flag showing… something on the track that I can’t still understand what… looks like a piece of a front wing…

Lap 7; Rosberg takes over Trulli after a long fight…

Lap 8; seems Massa took the piece from the track and has it under his car… hope it won’t make big damage!

Lap 9; Alonso takes over Trulli as well… Räikkönen now with the fastest lap and about 4sec from Hamilton!

Lap 10; Räikkönen seem to be catching up well… he sets even another fastest lap and he is closing up to Hamilton! 🙂

Lap 11; and another fastest lap for the fin!!! My ice man is flying!!! 🙂

Lap 13; Alonso in pit (super soft tyre and 9.8sec)… and Räikkönen is closer to Hamilton… and Massa takes the fastest lap.

Lap 15; Rosberg pushing and flying in his sectors… new fastest lap for Räikkönen… Barichello pits… and an accident by Piquet… and safety car is out… and a reply for piquet’s accident coming out of turn 17… he was unhurt and safely out of his car!

Lap 16; Rosberg pits… and seems he will be penalized as what it seems the pit line not open…

Lap 17; Kubica pits… and surly will get a penalty for it!

Lap 18; pit line open… Ferrari pits… Massa… what a disaster… it was horrible… he left on his green light but it wasn’t ready… he ended up pulling the gas hose and break it with him, and one mechanics might be hurt… Räikkönen pits and get out while Massa still waiting for the mechanics to take off the hose that was stuck…

Lap 19; Rosberg leads but he seems to have a penalty waiting for him… and what seems safety car is going in, in the end of the lap… and Rosberg’s stop might have been ok!

Lap 20; Massa is last after the pit disaster…

Lap 21; Massa is under investigation…

Lap 23; Rosberg still leads and pulling away in the front… Räikkönen P15…

Lap 24; Massa gets a drive through penalty because coming out in front of Sutil in the pit…

Lap 25; Rosberg and Kubica both were found to have to serve a 10sec stop penalty for pitting when the pit lain was still closed!

Lap 26; the control telling Rosberg to stay out and keep pushing till they call him in for the penalty… seems also that is good news for Alonso who is running in P5.

Lap 28; Kubica get in the pit for his penalty… and he rejoins the race in last position.

Lap 29; Rosberg pits for his penalty too… and rejoins in P4…

Lap 30; Trulli leads… Alonso in P2… Fisichella get to make his first and what seems his only pit stop with 13.1sec stop meaning a lot of fuel… and Webber is out of the race!

Lap 32; Massa pits (super-softs and 7.3sec stop)

Lap 33; Trulli pits from lead (super- softs for him too in 9.9sec stop)…

Lap 34; Kubica pits…

Lap 35; Massa passes Bourdais… Kovalainen pits from P11. And Alonso is pulling away from Rosberg…

Lap 37; Hamilton stuck behind Coulthard in P4.

Lap 38; Räikkönen starts going after point for the Ferrari…

Lap 40; Alonso still leads… Sutil makes his second stop…

Lap 41 Rosberg pits (soft tyre and 8.7sec stop)… and Renault getting ready for a stop. Alonso pits from lead (stays on harder tyres and 7.6 sec stop) and he rejoins in the lead…

Lap 42; Hamilton tries to pass Coulthard… Hamilton pits from P2 (swaps to softer tyres in a 7.7 stop)… Coulthard is in too but he tries to get more fuel… Hamilton rejoins in P7 and Coulthard rejoins in P9.

Lap 44; Vettel and Heidfeld both make their second stop. And a replay shows Kubica passing Fisichella for P13.

Lap 47; Glock pits…

Lap 48 Glock drops to P5 after the stop… and we hear Coulthard telling his team that he’s having problems with the breaks…

Lap 50; Räikkönen is doing so well behind Rosberg, but I’m sure he has to stop again!

Lap 51; Trulli going slow seems heading to the pit… Räikkönen does pit (6.6sec and harder tyres) to rejoin in P5… Sutil hits the barriers at turn 18… safety cars out again…

Lap 52; Trulli pits and seems to retire… and reply for Sutil’s accident… and Trulli is out of his car and the race!

Lap 53; safety car is in, in this lap…

Lap 54; racing continues… Alonso leading, Rosberg in second, Hamilton P3, Glock P4 and Räikkönen P5…

Lap 55; Hamilton pressuring on Rosberg…

Lap 56; seems Alonso got this race…

Lap 57; I hope Räikkönen passes Glock… but will need to wait and see!

Lap 58; But instead in the turn 10 of this lap he runs to the wall and breaks his right side of the car totally… he is out once again! 😦 This now seems to give the chance for Williams to be the only team with both cars in the top 8!!!

Last lap; Alonso’s victory this year… ok it’s his very first podium this year too… Rosberg (1/2 Finnish 🙂 ) in second… and Hamilton in P3! Glock in P4…

And so we end up in Katajanukka which is a beautiful area in Helsinki… and then she walks with me to a hotel… my surprise is that hotel used to be a jail just 4 years ago or so… so here we are in this jail that looks so amazing as a hotel from inside… it was cool… then we go downstairs for the amazing meal in jailbird… http://www.jailbird.fi/ … the meal was perfect, service was amazing… and the tour to the jail cell was so fun…

Then we head to the party… and we were going to barfly… where my friends where playing… I saw DJ Defkut… my god he hasn’t changed… still good music amazing style and perfect smile!!! and of course I had my good friend Olga and her man DJ Rahim… yes it was great having them around as they have been some of my best friends in Finland for years!

Holidays in Finland… Well good things… I mean amazing stuff… Emmi keeps making me happier everyday for being her friend… my mum look amazing after loosing the extra kilos she had on when I saw her last… so many friends and family to see…

So I arrived on the 13th… saw my mum, out of the door with Emmi for the evening as we went to a lovely Moroccan restaurant… Fez the name if I remember right… beautiful food, service and place!!! 😀

Next day… missed my F1 😦 … as I had to joined friends for lunch and bowling… in this new place called flamingo… I was impressed!! Well I don’t think I would have been the most excited one seeing Räikköenen loosing more points as I’m enjoying my time in Finland… spent the end of the evening with my mum…

Then came the week… much more to continue later as I have to run again to join Emmi for a movie, dinner and nightclubbing!!! 😀

2008 FORMULA 1 ING BELGIAN GRAND PRIX

Filed under: F1,PLEASURES — by noracassandra @ 4:12 pm

Number of laps 44… Circuit length 7.004 km… Race distance: 308.052 km… And Lap record is held by 1:45.108 – K Räikkönen (2004)

Starting the race with ½ wet and ½ dry track was a difficult decision for all teams… as some thinking if they start with wet tyres and some dry… but I would guess everyone will be using dry tyres!

The race starts for me to realize that the live timing on F1 web site is not working… so I had to watch the race with out any English commentary which made it really difficult for me to know everything going on!!! All I could do is follow what was happening just by watching the race! And try to understand a comment or two that are said in Greek!

Lap 1; on a wet ground Kovalainen loses 2 positions giving Räikkönen the P3… and to just pass Massa on the first turn… Trulli has spun and lost many places (I wasn’t sure how many)… and Kovalainen got down to the P11, and Hamilton makes a mistake and so Kimi Räikkönen passes him and takes the lead…

Lap 2; Fisichella pits as it seems he getting repairs… and he is the last on track…

Lap 3; Kovalainen passes Glock and in P10… and we see a replay for Fisichella’s contact with another car which caused the early pit…

Lap 4; Kovalainen now in P9…

Lap 5; And again Kovalainen makes a pass this time it Piquet and now he is P8… and Räikkönen leads almost 1.5s….

Lap 6; Hamilton is close to Räikkönen again… and Heidfeld passes Piquet and in P9.

Lap 7; new fastest lap from Räikkönen…

Lap 8; Kovalainen is trying to pass Kubica for P7… but Kubica is holding his place!

Lap 9; Kovalainen passes Kubica…

Lap 11; Kovalainen and Webber make a contact and Kubica passes Kovalainen…

Lap 12; Hamilton pits and he rejoins behind Kovalainen… Räikkönen pits and rejoins behind Massa and Alonso… Webber pits, Massa pits and Kovalainen pits as well…

Lap 15; Piquet spins off road and crashes to the tyre wall and damages his front wing… he’s out of his car and his race is over… Kubica and Bourdais… tension watching who comes out first and it was Bourdais…

Lap 17; Coulthard passes Barrichello for P12.

Lap 18; Heidfeld takes over Glock to take P8… and Räikkönen leading…

Lap 20; new fastest lap set by Räikkönen… battle continues between Kubica trying to get P5 from Bourdais… and we hear the BMW Sauber control telling Kubica that Bourdais is going for a pit stop soon!

Lap 21; Barrichello is out of the car in the Honda garage…

Lap 25; Räikkönen and Hamilton both get into the pit with Räikkönen leading… Räikkönen gets out first right behind Massa…

Lap 26; rain expected in 20 min…

Lap 27; Massa pits from lead and rejoins in front on Trulli…

Lap 29; Bourdais in forth and the team telling him to push more!

Lap 30; Hamilton is closing up on Räikkönen… 1.9s between them! Heidfeld makes the last stop and takes harder tyres… Bourdais makes his stop too and rejoins in P8…

Lap 33; Kubica pits, Vettel too and Kubica seems to take bit longer so Vettel leaves first!

Lap 37; Hamilton closing up on Räikkönen, spots of rain showing on cameras… but doesn’t seem any hard rain coming yet…

Lap 38; raining in few spots of the track… drivers slowing down including Räikkönen… and Hamilton is getting even closer…

Lap 42; rain getting harder…

Lap 43; Hamilton tries to pass and almost gets his pass… but Räikkönen keeps his place… but Hamilton fights harder and takes the lead on La Source turn… and rain gets harder… Heidfeld pits for wet tyres and is the only one with the wet tyres on track… while Räikkönen fights to get the lead back and passes Hamilton just to spin and hit the wall and his race was over… and I was as pissed off as it gets… and I think I would stay pissed off for the rest of the day!!!

Lap 44; many pit for wet tyres but none of the leaders! Hamilton almost loses control and I don’t deny I was hoping he does and gets out too! (I don’t know but a man his age having his daddy taking around the world just seems enough reason to dislike the babyman)… Alonso pits from P3… and seems as if Bourdais will stand on the podium today!

Last lap; Hamilton passes the finish line first, Massa right after… Kovalainen is out of the race in his last lap as his car stopped on the side of the track… and Heidfeld passes and takes third as he was the fastest on his wet tyres…

Now I have had headache, my body aches, I have to be on a horrible diet, F1’s live timing not working today right… and Räikkönen’s bad luck… made me just in the worst mood ever…
