MS : Back to the business

That kind of rhymes, doesn't it? Well, almost. 2006 Formula 1 season officially flagged of today with qualifying for first Grand Prix of the season, The Baharin Grand Prix. And the baap of all is back to business. Yes, it's Michael Schumacher.

IT's Ferrari on the front-row with master on the poll. Ferrari showed reliability in both the practice sessions, as compared to poor reliability of McLaren and poor show by Renault. With new regulations in place, MS did intelligent show by just managing to stay in top 10 for first two qualifyings and snatching the first place in the third one and equalling Ayrton Senna's record for 65 polls. His partner, Felipe Massa, who was upgraded from Sauber-Petronas to Ferrari seize the opportunity to manage second place. Jenson Button and current world champion, Fernando Alonso followed. Hit by rear wing failure and right rear suspension failure Kimi had to satisfy with last place on the grid. Tomorrow is the big day and this season I bet is rebirth of the Phoenix.
