I'm just watching qualifying for the Bahrain F1 race, and I'm pretty impressed with Karun Chandhouk. His first laps EVER in his HRT car were in this qualifying session. He went out and ran a 2:21 compared to a typical fastest time of 1:55. In only his second lap he ran a 2:08 which was as fast as any time that his team-mate Bruno Senna did the previous day. He went on to only be one second slower than Senna, despite having a whole day's-worth less experience. I think that is pretty damn impressive.

Look for Chandhouk to be the surprise of 2010...

Still here

I can't believe it is seven months since I last posted on this blog, but since four of those have involved being a new dad, I think I can cut myself some slack.

I also found that much of what I wanted to say about motorsport I had already said (or other bloggers were saying the same thing). I got rather tired of the silly politicking in F1 and Indycar, and since there's many other sites out there doing race reports, why try to replicate that?

Anyway, I'm still watching racing and I'm still very excited by it. In fact, it will be a whole new experience when I next go to the track, since I'll be able to take my daughter with me. That race will be the ALMS event at Laguna Seca in May, and just to be on the safe side, we bought her a special Christmas present in preparation:
