Breaking News- Fernando Alonso Survives Hard Crash in F1 Race

The good news to this story is he walked away. Traveling at around 190 MPH, Fernando Alonso came into contact while passing Haas racing driver, Esteban Gutierrez and became airborne after hitting the gravel trap eventually hitting a wall. The car was virtually destroyed and unrecognizable, yet Fernando climbed out on his own and walked gingerly away.  Gutierrez can be seen getting out of his car and sprinting over to see if Alonso was OK and in a show of relief is seen putting his arm around him.  Thank god it turned out this way and this is a testament to the many safety features built into current day Formula One cars.

The race held in Australia was the first of the season which was won by Nico Rsberg followed by Lewis Hamilton.  No surprise here. Sebastian Vettle was third.  It will be a few more races to see if Ferrari can compete with Mercedes and early indications are it can. Vettle held the lead in the early part of the race.

Check out the Video below of the horrific crash, followed by a teaser of pictures of the 12 Hours of Sebring that concluded less then 12 hours ago.

St Petersburg Firestone Grand Prix 2016 Photos

I am posting a gallery of photos for you to enjoy- I'll have to save a report on the results for later as I'm getting ready for the IMSA 12 Hours of Sebring race this weekend, but as you all know by now Juan Pablo Montoya was the winner for the second year in a row over 2nd place Simon Pagenaud.  The Penske boys dominated again this year and it is a shame pole sitter, Will Power was ill and could not drive on Sunday. 

It was another 'Chamber of Commerce' day in downtown St Petersburg and if you have not been to this race, you need to make it next year. This venue will make you want to move there. Water, yachts, museums, theaters, high end condos, sports of all kinds and Indy cars racing in the streets is as good as any city in America gets!
