European GP – Wolf’s Valencia Diary – Saturday

Felipe Massa

It was great day at the track with awesome free practice, great F1 qualifying and exciting GP2 race. Unfortunately the Holiday Inn hotel I am staying at forgot that this is 21st century and so, no internet connection. (Unless I consider getting one page open after an hour of trying as a working internet …)

Perhaps tomorrow it will work better and I will be able to post some of the pictures…

The home fans were left disapointed after Fernando Alonso failed to make it to Q3 but they (and me with them) still cheered Massa when he claimed the pole (as I predicted :-) ). Not sure if it had anything to do with the fact that Massa pole meant Hamilton’s relegation to P2. Alonso however did not sound too disapointed on the radio – he expects some Safety Car action tomorrow and then anything can happen …

That was the case of the GP2 race. Pantano had the win in the bag, until his car stopped with a corner to go … Senna set for 4th place at that time slowed down at about the same moment and barely made it to the finish line (9th place). Petrov took the win.

I may be back tomorrow, if I manage to get online.

One more thing to note – If the GP2 race is to be any indication of overtaking in tomorrow’s F1 race, then the best overtaking spot seems to be the final corner…

Updated: I managed to upload some photos :-)

    Next time buy yourself an SIM which can be setted up with a mobile phone cards, it’s the cheapest way to get a propper connection with G3 speed. Spain recieve millions of tourists, this isn’t difficult to get on prividers as Vodafone (I guess the best who do that deals), Orange or MoviStar (It’s my company, now exists a module of 3Gb connection for 15 € or so). Good luck!!! Do not desperate ;-)
