• Formula 1 2012 - Spanish Grand Prix results, rookie wins and Rosberg finishes in 7th

      Not the best day for Mercedes with Rosberg finishing in 7th and Schumacher not finishing the race after a collision with Senna. The victor was rookie Pastor Maldonado who was helped out greatly by the penalty assessed to Lewis Hamilton after qualifying essentially stripping Hamilton of the pole and giving it to Maldonado. A well deserved victory by Maldonado who raced very well and in the process became the first Venezuelan to win a Formula 1 Grand Prix.

      The next race is at Monaco on the last sunday of the month, the 27th.

        I'm Back!

        This was another exciting race this year from a fan's view. It's great seeeing all the teams so close to each other. But these tires are dictating too much of the race. I would have loved to see Alonso, Kimi, and Maldonado battle it out, but the damn tires prevented that.
