I’ve always love Monza. A track full of heart warming fans.
Congratulations to Michael Schumacher, winner of this year’s Monza F1 GP, pole sitter Kimi for finishing second and rookie driver Kubica who drove a stunning race into third place for BMW. I’m so happy that Alonso failed to finish the race. Currently Michael is behind Alonso by 2 POINTS ONLY! with 3 more races to go. Do you think Michael can do it ? Can he win the World Champion? My answer is YES. Ferrari will make it happen. I’m very sure. After all this is Michael’s last racing season.
Yes I’m sure most of you have heard the news on radio/TV or even heard this heart breaking news from Michael himself at the Monza post race conference. It’s official that Michael Schumacher is retiring at the end of 2006 F1 season. I’ve heard and read from newspaper about this unofficial news few days ago. In fact many people have been wishing him to hang up his boots this year. They said it’s time to give way to other drivers. It’s boring to always see him win and he have already dominate the race for many years now. But have they thought why he keep winning the race?
It’s because he is the best and most successful F1 driver in the world. For Christ’s sake, he is the only holder of 7-times world champions and yesterday’s race marks his 90th career victory. Isn’t that say something about his greatness?
Who will replace Michael?
This man… Kimi Raikonnen
Ferrari has announced that Kimi Raikonnen will replace Michael next year. Both Kimi and Massa will be the official Scuderia drivers for 2007 season. Kimi has signed on for 3 years while Massa for 2 years.
I’m glad Kimi is the chosen one. Well, I’m not very fond of Kimi a few years back but I’ve grown to like him. 😉 He is a tough driver and I hope he will win many races with Ferrari.
Though I still can’t imagine Kimi wearing a red outfit. Can you? *chuckles
