Well, we so 'hot thing' Danica is burning up the track once again in qualifying over there in Fontana. What was it, just three cars slower than she was? That seems just teeny-weeny bit embarrassing no matter how you choose to twist it. And, heaven forbid, even a couple SPEED announcers had to finally fess up and said she needs to show what she's got. Oh, wait. Don't take it that way. You know, I mean, on the track.
She's got a full + season in Nationwide with one of the better cars and teams and some CUP starts scattered here and fro. Now shes bought her CUP ride with GoDaddy shelling out the big "green" ones and still in a great car. It's now time to drive the damn race car or go back to waiting tables and fiddling with her hair or whatever she used to do.
Total different story over here folks, especially for Simona de Selvistro. At long last she's got a decent ride and crew in KV Racing and she's partnered with Tony Kanan. Unlike way over there in California where the "silver" spoon lady was lucky to make the filed, SImona put her new car in third place - inside second row! My hat goes off to her and heres hoping she has a good finish - she's earned it.
And how about that rookie kid Tristan Vautier? He turned some heads in his first IndyCar start. I believe there's going to be some eyes on him. Never in any of my racing days would I have paired AJ Foyt with Takuma Sato, but there they are on the outside front row will Will Power. And a good qualifying time for the "Mayor" of Hinchtown as well...
Yes. It's hard to believe. Sebastian Vettel won another pole position. How many Malaysian poles is that now? Had hopes of Rosberg edging out teammate Hamilton but it didn't happen. Sutil cracked the top ten which showed well of him and Perez was only .2 off Button in his McLaren. I would think if Maldonado wants to keep his ride with Williams-Renault he better just shut up and drive the damn car. I would love to see the "Ice Man" put another one to them.
If I HAD A Wish
This would be the results for the weekend that would thrill me: FORMULA 1 - Kimi, Weber, Alonso; IndyCar - Sato, Simona, Vautier; Nationwide - KyB crashes, "Nationwide Kids" battle to the finish - Larson, Bayne and Hornish; CUP - Anyone except KyB, Hamlin and Edwards (well, except for the one with the "silver" spoon).
That's my take now lets see how things pan out.
