Double Red Happiness

Oh yes!!! Schummi and Massa did another 1-2 in the German GP!! And with Alonso only finishing 5th, the drivers' championship is hotting well and trully up. What a dominant performance by the scarlet red team, they were at 1 point 30 secs ahead of the third place driver at that point, Jenson Button. Schumacher is now only 11 points behind Alonso (last month, it was 25). Schumacher only needs to "win" the remaining 6 races to clinch his 8th title. Small order;)

The other red happiness was that Man United finally signed its first player for the new season. The highly rated Michael Carrick caused MU £15 million pounds and is part of the fantastic trio (together with Frank Lampard and Joe Cole) who came out from West Ham's youth system. Last of the 3 to make a name for himself but still did it for Tottenham Hotspurs last season, hence the move to MU this season. Hope there's more signings to come after Van Nistlerooy's move to Real. Such a pity to offload a player who's just scored 150 goals for you.

On a smaller note, went go-karting again under Shell's karting club. This time around, it wasnt at Sepang but at Elite's USJ rest area. 2 races, Started 7th and 6th. Finished 6th and 3rd I think. Don't care cause it was plenty of fun. Had lots of wheel-to-wheel action. We used the drift layout (whatever that means). Just had 6 corners. Short and nice la!
