of a few things i look forward during the weekend is sitting in front of the tv tube and watching the sport channel for F1, MotoGp and Tiger Woods. basically watching these Legends in action and crafting their names in history.
last weekend was a good one as i was able to watch the MotoGp as well as F1 and my heroes won their race respectively.
in MotoGP Valentino 'the Doctor' Rossi won the race after exchanging the lead with fellow compatriot Capirossi on Ducati. it was exciting race. the won left him with abt 26 points short of the Championship leader with four races to go. he only hope is for Nicky Hayden to register DNF in one of the remaining GPs.
the highlight was definitely F1. such a long time i haven't got my heart beat so fast while watching the race and it was definitely one of the race that got my butt of the couch. there are two reasons ... one coz Mat Sumatke looking to win the race and anothers coz Kubica was driving fantastically for Sauber for the last place of podium.
it was an emotional win for Mat Sumatke and the whole team as well as the italian tifosi and his/ferrari fans on the whole world. it was such a fruitful day for them to clawback into the championship race withing 2 points adrift from 12 points earlier on and to overtook the constructor championship.
it was emotional as it was the designated time for Mat Sumatke to announce his retirement at Ferrari home race. and to do it with a win and fantastic result it was such a blessed day.
this is the Champ that risk it all by joining Ferrari, a team that never won any races for 20 years. his task is to drive the team towards the top of the podium and he successfully done that in 2000. it should have done it in 1999 should he not broke his leg in an accident during Silverstone GP race. from then on they are the formidable team for 4 years until few GP's regulations chaanged seem to turn a bad luck on their side.
what a good occasion to bid a farewell when the team is on the rebounding. as people say never leave your shit behind. he done that.
without doubt the man had his nemesis as well. whether inside or outside the F1 circus. even Briatore whom they together won F1 championship for two years said he is not the star of F1 but merely a champ and down play his name below aryton senna. is it jus becoz he did not do any antics outside the race circuits? just ask his fans how they rate him. but as the saying ... to excel is to be mis-understood.
with his demise then a new blood will have a chance to step into a limelight adn creating the name of their own. last weekend saw another raw potential in the name of Kubica. to score a point on his F1 race ever (was later de-classified) and to stand on the podium on the third F1 race speak for itself on his talent. alonso and raikonen shall better watch out for this guy.
for the next three races i will definitely be glued in front of the tv screen again. as the pundit say ... Mat Sumatke will go on to win his eighth championship but renault remain a tough nut to crack.
