Good Week/Bad Week
Apr 8, 2009, 6:52 AM

I don't know about you, but I need some light relief after all the heavy duty stuff about McLaren.

I don't know about you, but I need some light relief after all the heavy duty stuff about McLaren. Here's a review of the week's winners and losers.

 

Good Week for:

Nick Heidfeld - Gambled on only one pit stop in Malaysia and got a podium. Though short, he now stands above his highly-rated team mate in points table

Timo Glock - The gambler of Interlagos does it again, but this time it has no effect on the outcome of the championship. Glock shows he's a canny racer.

Brawn GP - We now know just how fast this car is when pushed. Button's fastest lap in Sepang was almost second faster than rivals. Get working, lads.

The English language - Eddie Jordan demonstrates its versatility on TV. Words can be put into any order, with or without verbs.

 

Bad Week for:

Evening race starts - F1's sketchy understanding of geography shown up again as an evening monsoon, predictably, douses the Sepang track. Race abandoned.

Martin Whitmarsh - two races in to his dream job and it's become Nightmare on Elm Street. Will he actually be garotted on April 29th, or merely flogged?

Ferrari - The team which seemed to have forgotten how to lose... has suddenly remembered again. Full wet tyres... on a dry track?

Honda - the boss who decided to quit F1 is now sitting in a bar, comparing notes with the man from Decca Records, who turned down the Beatles.
