F1 2008 IS GO

image So the first race of the 2008 Formula 1 season is out of the way with a great haul of points for the Williams team. With so few finishers it will be interesting to see if they can keep up the momentum next weekend in Malaysia. I suspect that it could be a little more difficult as by rights you would expect both Ferraris to finish ahead of the Williams under normal circumstances.

There was plenty of action and quite a few “incidents” that caused plenty of angst in the pit lane. One of the most amusing must be the following comment from David Coulthard following his coming together with Felipe Massa. Apparently this went out live when Coulthard was interviewed by Louise Goodman but was edited out by the afternoons replay:

“I screwed up the same way with Alex (Wurz) last year and took full responsibility for it. I would expect Felipe to do the same.

“If he doesn’t, then I’m going to kick three colours of shit out of the little bastard…”
