IRL starts on sad note:
IRL driver Paul Dana lost his life in final practice of series opener race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. I always get this notion that racing in ovals is more riskier than racing on circuits, The only banked oval that F1 cars have to negotiate (the T11-T12 Turn at Indy) has been tough on Ralf Schumacher and he has never been the same driver after he has crashed twice on that oval corner. My sympathies with the family of Dan & the racing fraternity on losing a member.A brief Biography of Paul Dana.
GPMA falls in line:
So like it happens in the F1 world, after all the in fight and bad-mouthing everybody stays in F1 family and Bernie and Mosley have things done their way. On brighter side, well Ferrari will still be competing against the likes of Mclaren & BMW and not likes Midland F1 and Ferrari customers like Red bull
