With the telecast of the race from the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) being at a most unsociable hour, starting at 2 a.m. I missed the visual spectacle. From all the reports I have read, it tended towards boring, as many of the GP’s have been this year. Hamilton had a good start for once and never put a wheel wrong. However, in the post race interviews he played for sympathy, saying he was worried all race long that the car might fail to reach the finish. Oh, the poor dear! How long has he been racing? He should know that motor racing is 90 percent frustration and 10 percent fun. I hate to think how many races I’ve lost through engines with a hand grenade inside and gearboxes with teeth missing!
So to Mexico, and my perch in Jameson’s. Mexico suffered the same fate as the COTA being telecast here at 2 a.m. I don’t need Horlicks at that time in the morning, so I’ll read all about it on the Monday.
While the UK is cheering Hamilton towards a possible 4th World Driver’s Championship, his po face when he doesn’t win turns me right off!
With the way the points are at present, the championship is Rosberg’s to lose, while Hamilton needs wins and preferably a Rosberg DNF.
