    From the Pictures and such I have seen, I agree. And it isn't that I don't want to, but I don't want to get wrapped up in anything. I am on a vacation, and as such, I just want to relax.

    I will go, one of these days. Possibly next year. Alaska bound. Going out I may go through Canada, then coming home through the States. Or in reverse. Who knows.

    I am looking forward to this race. I only hope the uncertainty and surprises continue!!!:clap

    Any of you guys going to the Canada GP? I'm timing a 3 week bike trip from NYC to Newfoundland and back, starting with the F1 race in Montreal. I should probably get a ticket at some point, now that I think about it.

    I don't know what a fully enclosed hole is. But whatever it is, the Red Bull floor has one and it's illegal. So back to the old floor for Montreal.

    Hamilton(edit: Hamilton's pit crew) will pull it together for Montreal and absolve himself of his stupidity there last year, making for a 7th winner.

    If Schumi pulls off a win in Montreal it will almost rival Alesi's.

    I am also betting on Schui to get up the front.

    I'm heading up to Montreal later in the week. I'm looking forward to it. I haven't been in a couple of years.

    He hit Webber too. Remember, Hamilton crashed into half the field last year.

    Every year since he drop kicked Kimi in the pits he has tried to out do himself.

    My wife and I will be in grandstand 15. The hairpin is the place to be. :~) You can watch the cars a lot better than along a straight.

    True, I forgot about that...but both continued on.

    I dunno if you can put all of last years crashes on his shoulders, Massa had alot to do with them also. That being said, this year has been head and shoulders above last in terms of crashes...or non-crashes.

    The unfortunate saga of Robert Kubica continues. Prosthetics implanted. Apparently he had to let go of the wheel to turn left. Very sad.

    With all the turmoil at the top of Lotus, you have to wonder about the company's continued commitment to F1. They can scarcely afford their involvement with IndyCar, a commitment which seems certain to end at the end of the season.

    great day of practice. Kimi & Big John a bit slow, but that's OK, just practice.

    Hamilton, Alonso and Massa are all looking quick and tidy in practices 1&2. Button's struggling with a bad gearbox and hasn't been able to tune the chassis to his style as a result. I'm glad Ferrari found a set-up for Massa that works. This will be a crackerjack race. Hamilton will be the 7th winner and Alonso will keep piling up points. :deal
