Today was one of the most emotional days I think I’ve ever been through, after the qualifying yesterday and the subsequent demotion of Lewis and promotion of Pastor, You kinda wondered whether just maybe………

All the TV hype as usual, interviews with the relevant contenders, and I’m thinking “just get on with it” I just want to see if, just maybe Pastor can get to the 1st corner first. It was’nt to be. Historically the Spanish GP is won by the pole sitter, but that was in the days of Bridgestone and when the tyre deg was minimal. 2012 it’s a totally different ball game. As the race started and Alonso took the 1st corner you kinda realised that thw Williams team had the right strategy, Pastor tucked in behind Alonso, no 1st corner heroics, and settled down to race, and race he did.

Apart from the one slightly missed heartbeat on his 2nd stop, everything went to plan. This was without a doubt a proper race win, not a middle of the pack team winning because it rained or the safety car helped out or anything else, this was a team with the passion and drive to race and win, Coz that’s all they do.

After the race n celebrations there was  however a fire in the Williams garage, and it now emerges that 3 of the team have been detained in hospital in Barcalona, we wish them well and a speedy return to Grove.

On a personal note I’d have to say that today’s result is right up there with 14th Jly 1979,silverstone. Our 1st win, and further to that a massive Happy Birthday to Sir Frank. i know it was 16th April but the team celebrated out in Spain. It was also quite pogniant that we should get this win on the 62nd anniversay of the inaugral GP at Silverstone.The only truly independant team on the grid is back in the winning ways,and long may it continue.

We’re in really good shape now. WilliamsF1   43pts   looked pretty good to me after 5 races.
