The 3 winners, the podium presentation ( no champagne shower out of respect for the recent demise of the pope, God Rest His Soul )

Then the final press conference, where yours truly had to attend on behalf of Fernando Alonso!!! :p

Re: My experience at the Bahrain Grand Prix!

I really wish I could have attended, but I had to work extra hours due to the F1.

Has Abdulla been driving the M5 much lately? I have a feeling the Lamborghini feels a little inadeqate, since it's forsale right now.

That will never happen, because Dubai's leader is introducing the A1 Series that is competing with Bernie's F1!

aww...boo
thats lame, however the A1 series should still be very fun and will be a larger test on the drivers, not on the team's budget
