I have to think one of the real stories of the Australian GP was Lewis Hamilton, the rookie driver who finished third in this, his first ever F1 race. Hamilton even led for a few laps after the leaders ahead of them took their initial pit stops. He seemed cool and calm, and if he can keep this up, will be one to watch closely.
Another thing I noticed was the new paint schemes. Tobacco company advertising on F1 cars and uniforms is now completely phased, out, although Marlboro still has a significant stake in Ferrari, it seems. The Ferrari paint scheme and uniform has what looks like a bar code in a white rectangle in the same spots that the cigarette logo used to appear. I haven't worked it out, but is that possibly "Marlboro" spelled in bar-code font?
Thanks to Cheryl's influence, F1 is the only motorsport series I pay any significant attention to, despite the fact that my employer sponsors a Craftsman Truck Series driver, Jack Sprague. But it's not surprising that Con-way Freight would sponsor a truck, now, is it?
