As we head into the final third of the 2007 season the SofaF1 championship, like the F1 Drivers championship, could still go 4 ways. Nick like Hamilton still leads but the rest of us like Raikkonen, Massa and Alonso have eaten into his lead.
I almost smiled in amazement when Massa got the pole and Nick seemed to be onto it again, ready to increase his lead still further, but…
Nick only got 2 more points, for Raikkonen taking the second place, points which Alex, Fourstar and myself also got. The race was on.
Fourstar and myself managed to bag one for Hamilton starting on the front row, Alex picked up a couple of loose ones for Massa and Alonso, and got Rosberg spot on. Fourstar did the same with 2 for Heidfeld in 4th and one each for Rosberg and Kubica.
It was up to me though to really keep the scoring going, I managed to land 6 for Kovalainen, Rosberg and Kubica down in 6th, 7th and 8th and with 2 more for Alonso and one for Heidfeld I landed my second highest points tally of the season.
1 Bearded Stew 12
2 Fourstar 7
3 Alex 6
4 Nick 4
Which really tightens things up …
1 Nick 71
2 Bearded Stew 67
3 Alex 63
4 Fourstar 51
Good race for Massa, but Raikkonen lost out in qualifying, Hamilton hampered by a puncture, but not hurt as much as he could have been. Alonso closes the gap up, slowly but surely.
What was surprising though, wasn’t that Webber retired, but that only he retired, easily the race with the most cars still going as the winner crossed the line.
