You know what I think would be cool if they could televise it?

Paris to Dakar.

And I could do it! I have the technology.

I need some money!

The French have a different concept of racing. How odd that they invented Paris To Dakar out of that spirit of independence and that it died with the uprising of Al Queda

Ferrari confirm suspension failure caused Massa crash

http://www.formula1.com/news/headlines/2013/5/14615.html

Ferrari confirmed on Tuesday that the violent crash suffered by Felipe Massa on lap 29 of Sunday’s race in Monaco was caused by suspension failure.

Massa lost control of his car heading towards Ste Devote before colliding heavily with the barriers. The Brazilian made a precautionary visit to the medical centre following the accident but was subsequently released.

Having carried out an initial investigation into the cause of the crash based on telemetry data, the team studied components from Massa’s car back at their Maranello base on Monday before reaching their conclusion.

“The findings validated the first impressions of the engineers, confirming that the accident was caused by an element of the front left suspension breaking,” said a statement on the Scuderia’s official website.

Massa’s crash contributed to a disappointing weekend for Ferrari in which they were unable to rekindle the form that saw them score a double podium finish at the previous race in Spain.

Not only did Massa suffer two big accidents - the first of which, in FP3, prevented him from taking part in qualifying - but Fernando Alonso, a two-time winner in the Principality, could only manage seventh place on Sunday.

“This championship seems to be a real rollercoaster of emotions,” commented Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali. “Following on from a good weekend comes a bad one. That was the case in the first four races outside Europe and nothing has changed now we are back on the Old Continent.

“I can confirm that we didn’t get carried away when we won, nor did we beat ourselves up when things did not go as well as expected. But from now on, it will be important to establish a consistent level of performance.

“The best news to come out of the Monaco weekend is that Felipe is fine. Two big accidents, just over twenty-four hours apart and all he has to show for it is a bit of muscle pain. Fortunately there were no other injuries.”

Ferrari will spend the rest of the week working on their cars before they are flown to Montreal over the weekend in preparation for the Formula 1 Grand Prix du Canada 2013, running from June 7-9 at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
