(Sebastian Vettel; Source: f1fanatic.co.uk)

Round 9 of 19
(Valencia, Spain: June 27, 2010)

Yeah, I know this is getting all disjointed, BUTT! Y’all know the drill... As your Humble Scribe has been gallivanting about and hence somewhat slacking upon my most heralded 2010 GP Recap’s; as I’ll use the next Block ‘O time... (Get it? Can you say 2010 Indy Car schedule...) to profusely scribble my notes from Edmonton and the just concluded MOTO GP outing Back ‘Dar in Indy. (And although I did complete the MotoGP story – Sadly I haven’t even begun the monsterous Edmonton story; ACK!)

Meanwhile, here’s some of my previously concluded Scribbling’s of my initial thoughts towards the past European Grand Prix:

Race Drive of Valencia
Without doubt, this easily goes to Sauber’s Kamui Kobayashi, who put on an amazing Clinique in the races final laps, no less passing the “Works” Scuderia Ferrari of Fred Alonso! And then zapping Sebastien Buemi’s Toro Rosso on the final corner of the final lap...
