Champions (but things could have gone better for me...)!

Dear friends,

The Macau weekend finished and an unlucky season with it. It is something that happens. At the end of the day I think that the highest point of the season was the New York marathon!

This weekend has been characterized by highs and lows: from the one side I am really satisfied by the fact that BMW won the constructors' title (thanks to BMW Team Italy-Spain too...) and that Andy Priaulx and Stefano d'Aste won the drivers' title and the Independents' one, but from the other side my Macau experience has not been a memorable one, despite being really fast yesterday in qualifying.

In race one I was right behind Priaulx and due to the classification situation I was keen to protect him from any attacks.

In race two I have been bumped at the beginning (but I already made the race fastest lap!) and I went into the escape route. In the heat of the moment I did not understand who I had to thank for that, but at the end of the race, while I was getting into the pits, I have seen a piece of my rear bumper stuck... well, I let you guess where (and whose car was that).

Talking about the race again, in the heat of the moment I probably selected the reverse too violently and this broke some gearing that shortly caused the damage of other gears as well, therefore I could not do anything else that getting back into the pits.

This said, I will shortly have a long flight that will take me home... Greetings and see you soon on the "forth and back"!
