Turkish Grand Prix

I found it a little hard to follow the action in yesterday's Turkish Grand Prix due to a mild hangover form Saturday night and the fact that we had guests. Which was a shame because it was clearly one of the best races of the year so far. The new F1 circuit appears to allow some good on-track overtaking making the action all the more exciting.

Jenson Button put his contract worries and a poor qualifying behind him to fight his way up from 13th on the grid to finish in 5th place thanks to a fighting drive. The Red Bull Racing cars continue to perform above expectations bringing home both cars in the final 2 points paying positions.

The race was won by Kimi Raikkonen but he was pushed hard by team mate Montoya and championship leader Fernando Alonso. Unfortunately for Kimi, Montoya slid off the track on the penultimate lap allowing Fernando into second place. Kimi only closed the gap in the championship standings by 2 points this week making it unlikely that he can catch the leader in the remaining 5 races.

I'm torn between these 2 drivers, Fernando and Kimi. I think Kimi has what it takes to be champion and fully deserves to win the title at some point but I prefer Fernando's style and character. Of course, here's hoping next year is all about Jenson.
