The infinitely changing Formula 1 is at it again. The hyper ridiculous tyre rules that have pushed Ferrari out of the competitive teams has created security problems and now it is creating a huge rules embarrassment. Three drivers have had problems with Michelin tyres. One of them, Ralf Schumacher, will not participate in the race due to his crash. Michelin now says that the other tyres may have a problem and they want to change all tyres! Of course, this is against the absurd rules, so the race Director (Charles Whitting) says that they'll be penalize by the race commissars. Some teams have threaten not to race and if more than six teams do not race there can be no race at all (only three teams have Bridgestone tyres). They are discussing and negotiating as we speak. One possibility is that there will be a launched start behind the safety car, that will permit the Michelin tyres to get temperature (and, hence, pressure), but it will be a concession to the Michelin using teams, thus, in compensation the Bridgestone teams will start first! Yes, the absurd rules may get us what, for some. may be a dream come true, not only and all red Ferrari first lane, but an ALL Minardi THIRD Lane! Keep changing the rules, guys, at some point you may have to declare ME a race winner and fly me there at the last minute... I hope is at Monaco, but I'll take any Grand Prix.

F1: Raikkonen wins dramatic race. Kimi Raikkonen wins the Canadian Grand Prix from Michael Schumacher to give his title chances a major boost. [BBC News | News Front Page | UK Edition]
No, he didn't win it from Michael Schumacher. He won it from Montoya (who was black flagged), who won it from Alonso (car broke up), who won it from Ficichella (car broke up, same brand). Schumy was there quite by accident. Barrichelo did a lot of merits to get from last to third. Unfortunately since it didn't happen at the front we all missed it.

Against all odds and through a series of weird events, Schumacher manages a second to Kimi's first. The championship reopens a bit, but Kimi still has it very tough. It is clear Schumy has motivation but no car. Though the tyres perform better when is hot (and it should be hot from now on), they don't seem to be much better than the Michelins. Should be a entertaining second half of the season...

Schumacher is in the first row in Canada. So, I will watch the race, je, je. I have no battery, so I will be far from the computer. I post if something happens...
