It was raced yesterday at Interlagos in Brazil the penultimate stage of this 2015 F1 world championship.
Torcida was as always cheering, although the public in the stands was in sharp decline from last year, but there was very little to be happy.
The two Brazilian drivers Massa and Nasr made a race completely anonymous and Massa, finished eighth, was later disqualified.
Boring race and without
At 11.00 it was already sold out.
We connected on line (for the first time you could buy on-line and not only in the store chosen) early in the morning but you could not even access the site of H&M, a message said you were in the queue and to be patient. Only at 10.30 we were able to access but much had already finished. We managed to find something interesting. The collection is really beautiful, original clothes, some cost about 3/400 euro but many things had a very good price. Silk woman pants at 79 EUR or faux-fur at 129 EUR, even men’s jackets from EUR 79 to 149. Beautiful and great effect are even the accessories.

After 23 years the F1 circus is back in Messico. The historic track was unfortunately retouched by usual Tilke who made a track that unsuited to the show. What catches the eye is that in practice it is a bad copy of the Monza circuit with obviously different traits. So are we ready to replace
Austin, Texas, weekend characterized by Hurricane Patricia with torrential rains, high winds and cold.
What about this Formula 1 it is certainly not blessed with good luck, because even now Hurricane Patricia has moved on Mexico, where after years you will return to run just this weekend.
Saturday was a day to forget bordering on the ridiculous and that caused us a great embarrassment. Free Practice 3 still held although in extreme conditions of viable due to hurricane with danger for the drivers but also for the spectators. Qualifying postponed than 30 minutes in 30 minutes up to 3 hours later and
Japan: more than 30 years of Formula 1 history, here in 1976 was played the final chapter in the battle between Lauda and Hunt in the track under Mount Fuji, who consecrated Hunt world champion after the retirement of Lauda for the lack of security of a track bombarded by incessant rain.
Suzuka: yesterday our Luigino (Hamilton) won the race, and right here in Suzuka equaled his idol Ayrton Senna, reaching 41 victories.
That said the yesterday’s race was actually quite flat. Have made headlines only the team radio of Alonso who called his McLaren and the situation “embarrassing” while he was overtaking and then immediately added that this is an engine from GP2! For the rest zero overtaking, zero emotions, if not the usual Max Verstappen, who always gives us “video game overtaking”, otherwise some overtaking in the pits stops and then nothng. We found pretty the complicity on the podium between Hamilton and Vettel while they were joking with champagne as then it’s sad that they have ruled out Rosberg who was standing on the sidelines to rosicare. Do we want to comment on the scene between the 3 on press conference? Vettel launches a joke to Rosberg on tire pressure, he stiffens and says nothing. Falls from freezing for a few moments in the conference room, given the embarrassment, Vettel says immediately that he was joking and finally Hamilton took over the situation and ask if there are other questions. Embarrassing!
Let us then, as good image consultants, professional comment: but whatever is it combined the guy who did the interviews on the podium? Ok be characters, but take some clowns!?!?!? Sweatpants green printed with a pretty small field and combined with yellow shirt untucked and reach a tie yellow and blue flowers ??? It was to get drunk drinking a bottle neck of Mumm to forget! Even the reporter of Sky is appalled … not to mention the many people under the podium that pointed at him laughing heartily.
We conclude by quoting the beautiful phrase, in our opinion, the Italian-Japanese Mario Miyakawa Sky guest: “Hamilton is a true champion, a great driver, a true professional who works hard on the track, precise, careful and know how to live off the track the youth of his years. ”
Applaud Miyazawa,this serious professionist who, with a few words, has framed good the character Hamilton pointed out that for which we like and dislike in general. It is a hard worker but he also knows to enjoy life and let go at the right excesses that his age requires.
They should all take example from him and become a bit more characters.
We like the samurai but it also takes the flip side, we like who makes us dream.
Plot twist: after 12 races from the absolute domination the “Silver Arrows” suddenly collapse in the night Sepang. At Monza our Luigino (Lewis Hamilton) trims 25 seconds to the pilot of Ferrari Vette, came in second place. Last night at Sepang Vettel wins with a margin of 25 seconds over Rosberg came at 4th place and even Hamilton was forced to retire. Now, apart from our joy of italians to seeing two Ferrari on the podium, to hear the mechanical singing our national anthem and to see a race different from what everyone expected, there would be perhaps some considerations to do. What happened? Are collapsed in two weeks suddenly the performance of the Mercedes or are improved the performance of Ferrari? And is it possible to lose 50 seconds in 14 days? In Mercedes are all speechless and say they are stunned speechless by what happened, they did not explain it and they do not know which way to turn. The same at Ferrari, they do not know what caused this miracle but of course we all rejoice. Do we try to be a conspiracy thread? is there behind the hand of owner Bernie? Maybe some little button pressed to depower the Mercedes? Or maybe he asked at the same Mercedes to do it? All this clearly in the name of a show that was becoming obvious and therefore not very attractive? Also notice how suddenly the same Renault (Belgium ed), even if in phase of resuscitation for financial problems, became competitive. They do not have the money to pay the tires to Pirelli or hotels or salaries but returned to trouble Mercedes and Ferrari. Same happens for the Red Bull, they do not know yet whether or with engine they will run next year but in the meantime they return the podium. Now in fact the games are interesting, there is even talk of world championship reopened and next Sunday it runs in Japan. Something tells us that there will be an increase in audience and the interest in this f1 championship in who was bored in front of the TV every race until now will be awakened.
We want to emphasize how the smallness of mind of who sets the rules of Formula 1 is killing this sport. The scene of Vettel wants to carry the flag of Ferrari on the podium but it was blocked by the representative of the FIA is really sad! Ferrari must send a letter of apology because his mechanics “overwhelmed” the commissioners and security who tried to stop them as they ran to position itself under the podium ??? Do we have to comment ??? The flag or mechanicals under the podium are perhaps a security threat ??? Well, clear, as the lunatic who walks happily on the track during the GP is ok? Then how does he go through security? The same journalists from Sky and the Ferrari driver Marc Gene admitted that even for them with all the pass is really difficult to get to the paddock and not to speak on the track because of the many checks and then another man comes in and walks undisturbed? ??
We suggest you review the priorities of security and procedures and our motto remains the same: leave the drivers free to do what their heart tells them, bring back the show, give us back the emotions that only a spontaneous gesture can generate !!!
There are now switch off the spotlight on Italian GP Formula 1 in Monza. But as big fans of the sport and old friends (10 years) of Monza, the Autodromo of Monza and Brianza we hope that we speak for a long time.
Monza: the temple of speed! The only hear this sentence to anyone who loves this sport or was ever in Monza creepy. We are talking of the very history of Formula 1! The track was built in 1922 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Automobile Club of Milan and was completed in just 110 days. Since 1950, when it was established the World Championship Formula 1, the Grand Prix of Italy always ran in Monza with one exception in 1980 where instead it ran in Imola, as a consequence of the controversy derived for two years before incident that took the life of Ronnie Peterson.
Now, unfortunately, with the expiry of the current contract in 2016, we run the risk of losing Monza as stage of the world formula 1 championship.
There is much to say about how the Formula 1 changed in recent years or how people, young people, are moving away from this wonderful sport, which unfortunately today lost some of its charm.
We like to think and remember the Formula 1 as a sport for real men, knights ready to get on track in their brilliant “armors” to challenge the last combat with their powerful cars. We love people like Hunt, Senna, Gilles Villeneuve Lauda or Mansell, just to name some of the most famous. We love the wrestlers, men blood, stubborn, opinionated, never willing to give up or give in. Scenes like the one where Senna screams from the pain and joy for the victory in his Brazil , after leading for most of the race with only two gears. Scenes like the one where Mansell arrives at the finish line by pushing his car remained out of fuel and collapses. Or Lauda that a few weeks after his terrible accident at the Nürburgring returned with surprise on the track at the wheel of his Ferrari at Monza, with the wounds still bleeding under the helmet, trying some kind of pain. People like James Hunt outside the box and over the top with a cigarette in his mouth and beer in hand before and after a race, surrounded by beautiful women and loving party.
Give us back the glamor, excesses, let the drivers free to do, celebrate, get angry, being what they are, are men, are people like all of us. These are the things that are good for Formula 1.
Hearing about green cars, save tires, saving motor, not pull to not consume too much petrol is really too much sadness, is cheap and the Formula 1 must be glam, chic, over the top, a dream for us mortals who do not are part of it. Is it a sport or is it just a show?
Attend Vettel making bornout to celebrate its 4 world titles is wonderful, to hear that then will be fined instead is unbelievable! Knowing that they can not do the lap of honor with a flag … well …
See Vettel or Hamilton booed in Monza are not things to be proud of, not something from sports which we Italians have always been and what lovers of Formula 1 should be.
After so many years that we go to Monza for the Grand Prix the drop in audiences and interest it is now well tangible. It lacks the crowds of tourists but mainly Italians around the streets of Monza anxious to crowd the lawn and the stands to cheer for their begnamini and applaud with sportsmanship to anyone will be the winner! They lack enthusiasm and passion around a sport that instead is or should be the ultimate representation of the passion and determination! Lacking the same enthusiasm to try to save the Grand Prix in Monza renewing the contract with the boss Ecclestone. There was too much inertia and passivity, and now that we are running out w hopefully in a state intervention or some generous private. We pray with all our heart that this happens and that they sign the renewal, however, aware that much more could and should do, and that things do not happen by chance but are the result of hard work behind.
Confident and optimistic that there will still be many Grands Prix in Monza in the coming years we share with you some pictures we took with the stars of this traveling circus. Seeing the stars as they eat at the hotel or relax, a thought has to go to all the induced behind this world that is likely to suffer a severe blow by the loss of the Grand Prix in Monza: hotels, restaurants, etc…
