Italian GP: Vettel 1

Now that was super exciting! What an amazingly bizarre grid qualifying at Monza has left us with for tomorrow’s race. I don’t think I’m going to be able to sleep tonight just thinking about what’s going to happen.

Hungarian GP: Heik up

About time Kovalainen had some luck. There may have been a stroke of good fortune about Heikki’s first win but it would make up for the series of problems (loose wheel in Spain and big shunt; bad Safety Car in Melbourne; steering wheel electronics in Monaco) that had compromised his first season with McLaren-Mercedes.

Like Ron Dennis’ soliloquoy at Lewis after last week’s race in Germany. Ferrari’s guilty of it too. Where will it end?

Hungarian GP: quali

What a difference a year makes. This was the race in 2007 when the McLaren team began to tear itself apart as Hamilton and Alonso worked to their own agendas during qualifying. 12 months later, Hamilton and Kovalainen are best mates after giving McLaren the front row for the first time since Monza last year.
