I lol'd at that.

How much were they Paying Michael Shuemaker? Wasn't he one of the highest paid athletes in the world? Of course, he was also in a class of his own while completely pwned n00bs, much like Lance Armstrong does today (he's coming back one more time!).

I would not have wanted to race in standing water up to my front wing...it was like a LAKE!

Racing in the rain is one thing, but there's only so much you can do when the barge board under the car becomes a boat hull. It was a bit of a bummer that the race was shortened, but I thought it was pretty entertaining the whole way through, tons of back-and forth throughout the field. With the reduced downforce, those suckers look TWITCHY in the wet, I would have liked more onboard to see/hear the drivers reacting to the loss of traction.

Go Jenson Button!

So true. They changed the rules to make for more overtaking, and apparently it worked!
