Snoring through another race

Okay, I still believe it’s great to see an F1race live. But, watching the French Grand Prix this past Sunday made me almost rethink my interest in the sport. Michael Schumacher won the race for the 8th time — and that’s all you need to know. With the exception of the start and a brief battle with Fernando Alonso, the outcome was pretty much predetermined. Hopefully, the auto manufacturers will continue to push the FIA to increase competition on the track, although we’ve heard similar promises before. It’s been so long since we’ve seen Schumacher actually race against someone that I’ve forgotten what made him great in the first place. Soon, I fear, I’ll be writing the same thing about Fernando Alonso.
