2009 Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix Results

Posted by on May 11, 2009 in Formula 1, Sports | 0 comments

Surprisingly, 6 drivers did not finish the race. majority of the retirees were out because of the dramatic crash at the 1st lap! Sadly, although Kimi made a great performance from 16th position to 10th, he had a mechanical problem there while he was trying to overtake Heidfeld. His engine just stopped right there and he drove his car right at the side to retire :( wah… Kimi could have done better than that if only his car did not roar to death.

Meanwhile, Felipe Massa was 4th on the grid but ended up 6th place because he nearly ran out of gas during the last laps and he had to sacrifice 5th place just to finish the race without having to pitstop. The Ferraris are really not getting their strategy straight now. Too bad for the driver potential that both Massa and Kimi have.

Alonso was deemed hero to have placed 5th pole position (taking it away from Massa) by its native land. More F1 drama at the next circuit!

I also tried live blogging and tested it to be fine. The only problem I had with it is that I had to leave my room immediately coz guests were there everywhere in my house and they would sleep in my room. Anyway, see you next week! Thanks for dropping by!
