This season was bad for a tifosi. It was hard to see Ferrari going down like this, barely fighting. The main problem with Ferrari is that they've never been able to make a strong come back, a strong enough come back to challenge the leaders. This happened in 2006 too. Renault got off to an awesome start to the season, MSC had bad luck. By the time it started turning around, it was too late to win, even for the dream team of Michael Schumacher, Ross Brawn and Jean Todt.
Biggest one of all. Alonso moves to Ferrari. I DO NOT like this transfer one bit. It's like Tiger Woods joining the European team, it's like Federer playing for Spain in the Davis Cup.
Alonso is an excellent driver, there's no doubt in that. He's won Two World Championships and if that isn't proof enough, he won it when Michael Schumacher and Ferrari were at their best. He then moved to a bigger team, McLaren and everybody knows the deal with Hamilton and Alonso. Two big ego filled balloons fighting for the title is good for the sport, but inside a team, there have to be some compromises. Raikonnen and Massa are both awesome drivers and they have both driven for Ferrai for the past Three years, ever heard of any issues between them?! I just can't imagine what's going to happen between Massa and Alonso next year. I just hope Ferrari can make Alonso a better driver, both in technique and as a team man.
Raikonnen, a shocker. He says he might not race next year! The guy's an awesome driver. I've had some issues with him when he was fighting Schumi, but hey, I have that for anyone and everyone who challenges MSC, except probably Hakinnen, who was as brilliant as MSC. I really hope Kimi gets a contract, the sport can't lose a good driver like him, not when the pillars of the sport are in question.
Kubica moves to Renault to fill up Alonso's spot. I don't know if it is just Steve Slater, but he's been built up way too much. He's got the occasional podium, but to say that he's a competitor for the title, that's just pushing it.
One more small hope is Karun Chandok gaining a seat in Force India. I know this is more than just a hope, but then, Mallya's said that if Chandok's good enough, he'll give him the spot. Chandok's an awesome commentator (listen to his commentary in the Brazil GP'08), but as a driver, I don't know.
The only change in the rules that I know of is the ban of Refuelling during the Pits. This is beyond my imagination. There is going to be immense pressure on the pit crew to be quickER, like anyone else can change 4 tyres, fuel a car with around 200 kgs of petrol and get it back in perfect running condition in less than 8 seconds. Well, one thing's for sure. There will not be anymore events of drivers driving away with the fuel rigs still attached to the car.
Here's wishing luck to all of them for the next season.

I don't really know what is going on and I do NOT, I repeat I do NOT know what part I am playing in this. Sometimes I even doubt if I am part of It. the terms express train and clutching on to of dear life comes to mind.
It is difficult to do nothing because you never know when you're done.
And things aren't made any better, or any worse for that matter, by this certain feeling towards this certain girl. But one thing’s for sure, the fact that I am again being this dumb asshole who doesn't do anything about it, that definitely makes things worse. Why am I always the first person to comment on stuff, but not proactive when It comes to women? What Is It that stops me? Fear of being turned down? That could be a reason seeing how frequent that happens. Or is it the fear of being accepted? That could be a reason, seeing how the only girl I truly ever loved said just three words when I poured myself out to her - after some external coaxing by some unintentional parties - bad timing dude. Most of the times, I wonder all the action Is even worth all this!
No seriously, it’s happened a thousand times before and it’ll happen a thousand times more. Why is this one time so darn difficult? Is it any different you ask me, and I say I don't know? There’s a start!
There’s something else running in the background.
And time, goes by, so slowly... Time has a weird way of doing things. Very weird. Do do do...
I am the dodo... I am the smitten freakin' dodo..
