Last weekend’s race watch party of the Hungarian Grand Prix was a fitting start to the second half of the Formula 1 season. Lewis Hamilton was able to hang on from pole position to win. The Hungaroring is known as a track on which it is difficult to pass.
But then again, many of us were rooting for the Ice Man, Kimi Räikkönen, one of the 2 drivers for the Lotus Renault Team. We were willing him to pass race leader Hamilton, but it was not meant to be. Once again, will have to deal with the continued predictions by Steve Matchett of the SPEED broadcast team.
We are now into the second of the 5 week hiatus of no Formula 1 racing action until Labor Day weekend. To help us get through this absence, we are planning on a special showing of the movie/documentary SENNA. This will be in less than 2 weeks on Sunday, August 19th at 12:00PM/Noon, as usual at the Lion & Rose Pub (Alamo Heights location).
For those of you not familiar with Ayrton Senna, & some of Formula 1 racing history, this film will give you some very good F1 background. Also, click the video image below (from the Donnington Park Formula1 race in 1993) to learn firsthand more about Senna’s aggressive and winning driving style.
We look forward to seeing you then!
