French Formula 1 Ferrari Fucked-Fernando Fantacular

It's a strange feeling really; There haven't been any good real races in the Formula 1 season so far and yet I'm actually strating to feel excited by the sport again after a two-three year hiatus.

Maybe that's the Lewis Hamilton factor, despite him driving for a rival team, it's hard not to support a guy who is leading the Formula 1 World Championship in his rookie year and has been consistently beating his team-mate, who just happens to be the reigning World Champ, week after week.

It could be, I don't know. His performances have certainly formed a resurgance in the sport and he seems to be filling the enormous hole left by the retirement of Formula 1's greatest star, Michael Schumacher.

One thing is for sure though, the French Grand Prix looks to be a hum-dinger of a race. I mentioned that coming back to Europe would be the real test to Hamilton's Championship challenge, and after yesterdays qualifying, it appears I was half right. Hamilton was knocked back to second on the grid but not by Alonso, as I had thought. It looks like Ferrari have finally stepped up a gear and look to mount a fierce challenge for the win with Massa on Pole position and 'Robotkonen' on third. Alonso was relegated down the grid with engine issues.

Now we will really get to see what young Hamilton is made of. Will he stun the Formula 1 world yet again by beating the Ferrari's or will he find their greater experience to hard to topple this time around? Well, we'll find out in about an hours time.

And I for one can't wait.
