F1: Spa Sleeper, Monza Melodies?

Alright, I'll admit I've been slacking off lately on my F1 coverage, but hey, how can you say that this year's Belgian Grand Prix at thee mighty Spa-Francorchamps was overly exciting? I mean 'TWINKIEBOY (Seb Vettel) simply blew away the field after dusting off pole sitter Lewis Hamilton on the opening lap's run down to Eau Rouge and was never seen again...

Yet I found myself thinking that the Italian GP was somewhat farcical itself, as  once again 'TWINKIEBOY (Vettel) simply ran away 'N hid again from the opposition en route to his sixth win of the season - most likely leading to his fourth consecutive world championship, since he could sit out the next two races being won by second place Alonso and still remain three points ahead in the title fight; CRIKEYS!

Thus while Felipe Massa dutifully gave way to his more esteemed team leader (Alonso) after out qualifying him, Fernando was one of the few bright spots in the contest with his  'Mega overtaking move upon Mark 'Handlebarz Webber, which would be how the podium shaped out.

Lewis Hamilton had a storming drive, albeit  first starting from too far back upon the grid, (P12) sharing Row-6 with thee Iceman, nee Kimi Raikkonen, (P11) as the Finn had a relatively lackluster outing upon his future employer's home track... With thy "Louise 'JAGUAR" (Hamilton) then needing to overcome a punctured tyre all just to net himself two points for ninth place, while Webber's replacement next year,

Daniel Ricciardo finished  a fine seventh in the Scuderia Toro Rosso and hence I believe he's leapfrogged his peeved teammate "JEV" (Jean-Eric Vergne) for overall points this season.

Yet the star of the Monza weekend undoubtedly was thee Incredible Hulkster, nee Nico Hulkenberg, who began by out qualifying the Works Scuderia Ferrari duo by placing his lamented Sauber P3 upon the grid - before driving home to a fine fifth place, his highest finish of the season to date.

And I was left YELLING two words at le Telescreen upon Leigh Diffey's comments 'bout how the BOOING's starting to annoy Sebastian Vettel; as all I could say was "MULTI-21" TWINKIEBOY! I mean if you're gonna be a Piranha,  then you've gotta live with the consequences, right?

As there's NO denying his amazing talent - having just tied Alonso for fourth upon the pantheon of F1 career victories, presently tied at 32-apiece with such 'legendous names as Senna, Prost and Schumacher ahead of them... But hey 'Seb, just don't gritch 'bout NOT being 'LUV-end by everybody when you've been nicknamed The Smiling Assassin NO  less!
