iOS bits and pieces

Australia madness

Surprisingly eventful race down under, with 4 SC periods. It was amazing to watch how drivers experienced and novice made error after error, all ending up in spectacular crashes.

Alonso demonstrated relentless Renault pace, not allowing one bit of doubt who will dominate the field. Four times he built the time advantage and four times it was shattered by Safety Car coming out to the field. Fisico was out of the win racing early by stalling on the race start.

IE7 is ADxMenu compatible

It really is.

I just tried latest IE7 beta 2 (so called MIX06 release) and examples work as expected (did not fully tested though, just the basics).

Malasya '06

Renault is very impressive and things already don’t look too good; meaning - it looks like repeat of the last year. Kimi was hit in the first lap by Klien and this was the end of his race. The switch from Sakhir to Sepang ended up in lots of over burned engines so both Williams, Red Bull cars died, plus some others.

Ferrari surprisingly did not order Felipe to let Schumacher through :) and Fisico and Alonso did not even hinted that something like that might happen. It would be shame not to mention BanzaiMan - he managed to pass Liuzzi in that junk of the car that he has. It does not matter that Liuzzi passed him back - Sato still did it. :)

First 1-2 for Renault in 24 years, 100% rightfully won, simply - hats off.

Bahrain 2006

It started nice. Really. Even though McLaren had terrible start.

I’m surprised that Renault was this good. I expected Williams to be better, but even though they have possibly the best engine, rest of the package is troublesome. It repeats the pattern of their partnership with BMW - very strong engines, but average in whole. Williams needs to change something in their development team/process.

McLaren continues where it left off. Crash and burn before the race and then let the WonderBoy do some magic. For once, I would like him to start from the front and finish that same race. And Toyota…man, that team must be cursed. I have no other explanation and if something miraculous doesn’t happen, they better close the shop.

Alonso drove superbly, as well as Schumacher. But if someone should be picked, it must be Nico Rosberg. He scored points on his debut race and set the fastest lap in the race. If it wasn’t for that stop at the start, he might have be on the podium. Really great, it’s very nice to see another young driver with lots of promise. Just imagine - Alonso, Raikkonen, Rosberg - they will drive at least 10 more years. We already have the rivalry between the first two - adding the 3rd driver to the mix would be awesome.

Interesting season opener, will see how it all goes in Sepang where Michelin-based runners should again take victory.
