V10 guitar around Monza. Barrichello's 2004 lap record

I am posting here one of my last videos, together with the actual F1 lap that it is based on. I recommend you to play both videos together, but watching Barrichello's one while listening to the F1 Guitar sound only. To do so, turn off the sound of Barrichello's video, and start playing it slightly before the 3rd second of my video:

Alonso´s best victory

I heard several stories about Spaniards hesitating to watch the European GP race because of Alonso´s P11 on the grid. But then always someone said "Come on! We are talking about Fernando Alonso!" In a circuit where it is very difficult to overtake, and in a year where DRS help tends to make drivers to concentrate their overtaking efforts in a single spot of the track, Fernando delighted the grandstands by superbly overtaking all around the Valencia track. Take a look to this meaningful map with the number and name of overtaken drivers on each spot (black: on track; green: during the start; gray: during pit-stop; red: mechanical problem):
His talent, aggressive moves, concentration and always sporting attitude; his thoughts for the Spain difficulties and for the people watching the race; and then his tears in the podium make this (I think with no doubt) the best victory in Fernando Alonso´s career.

That´s what I´m talking about!!!

Everyone who has watched every F1 race this year will remember all the driving mistakes by Sebastian Vettel. And if you can remember them, that means they are a very little few. Vettel is completing a superb championship. Button, Alonso, Webber, or Hamilton have around the same points this year than thus far last year. Vettel is the only one outstanding, and if it was just because of the car, he would be nearer Webber in the standings.

Enjoy the video I am attaching. Only a year later, Alonso would find the joker behind him would be in fact the new youngest double champion ever:

Rock and Formula 1 together

I am not the only one who connects Formula 1 and rock guitar music. Now Metallica will be giving a concert previous to the India Formula 1 Grand Prix, to make for a whole weekend of exploding sounds, unique sensations:
