How stupid is Romain Grosjean?!? He has so much talent, but gets so unreasonable and hot-headed on the track. That was in no way Franck Perera's fault. He was kind of on the line, but it wasn't as if it was Grosjean's last lap. He should have just abandoned it and gone for it on the next lap, but instead he swerved horrifically strongly into him. Idiot. I don't like him.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

According to gpupdate.net, Belgian GP2 driver Jérôme d'Ambrosio wants to make his entry in F1 next year. I don't think that will happen. Maybe 2011. But he needs more car experience. Maybe if Hulkenberg goes to Ferrari to replace Badoer, he can do a good job in the current gp2 championship. And will maybe win a test with Renault or Force India ...

Parente grabs maiden pole at Spa
Spoiler:
By Mark Glendenning Friday, August 28th 2009, 14:48 GMT

A late flyer from Alvaro Parente gave him and his Ocean Racing team their first GP2 pole position this afternoon at Spa.

In far sunnier and conditions than those that the field faced in practice this morning, Parente produced a 1m54.970s lap to dislodge Lucas di Grassi from the top spot by just 0.080s with just 20 seconds of the session remaining.

Several quick drivers were still out on the track, but when Roldan Rodriguez stopped on the circuit and brought out the yellows a few moments later, any hopes of bettering Parente's time were dashed and the Portguese driver's place at the top was secured.

Points leader Nico Hulkenberg will start from third, alongside iSport's Diego Nunes, who did an outstanding job to record his best-ever qualifying result.

Hulkenberg's main title rival Vitaly Petrov could manage no better than fifth, with Karun Chandhok to join him on the front row.

The session was one of the most competitive of the season and, with the top 17 cars covered by just one second, a couple of tenths shaved off lap times were translating into gains of three or four rows on the grid.

Yet despite the pressure, the afternoon was relatively incident-free, with Davide Rigon providing the only drama when he forced the session to be briefly red-flagged after spinning and stalling at the Bus Stop.


Autosport hasn't posted the times yet, but here are they ...

And as you see, Homeboy D'Ambrosio failed to impress :(

Grid Penalty for Di Grassi and Perera ...

Di Grassi and Perera penalised at Spa-Francorchamps
Spoiler:
Lucas di Grassi and Franck Perera have been handed penalties after discussing their sessions with the race stewards following this afternoon's qualifying session in Spa-Francorchamps.

Di Grassi will drop 3 grid positions after being judged to have impeded Karun Chandhok during the session: the Brazilian, who finished the session in second position, will now start the race in fifth place, promoting championship leader Nico Hülkenberg to the front row alongside polesitter Alvaro Parente.

Perera, who qualified outside 107% of the pole position time, will not participate in either race this weekend: the Frenchman was also 12 seconds off the top position in the rain affected free practice session, and as such was unable to point to that session for an indication of his speed at the circuit.
