ALONSO WINS EUROPEAN GP PAST MASSA ON ROAD
Not due to pit-workings nor competitors' retirements, it was first time in 2007 FIA Formula 1 season when winner, last Champion Fernando Alonso of McLaren Mercedes, passed away race leader, Felipe Massa of Ferrari, on the road. It was a few laps remaining in European Grand Prix at Rainy Nurburgring, Germany.
In almost all circuits, a driver who have gone through first corner on 1st lap faster than others has lifted the Cup each. It bored me when I watched it race by race. But coming climax of the season, I'm happy watching battling on road and situation that Ferrari drivers and the champion trail the point-leader, the rookie Lewis Hamilton of McLaren.
Rain excites Grand Prix but no way every time. It maybe fan's selfishness...
