Not exactly car racing, but related:

Bernie open mouth and inserts foot again.

Oh, and on the counting chickens front:

[...] Max Mosley, angered over alleged insults from the teams, threatens not to stand down after all from the presidency of the sport's governing body (the FIA) [...]

Rain impacted qualifing over. Wonder if we need to bring out Paul Simon's song, "Slip Sliding Away" for the start?

Not really they had problems with the tires.
It was simply to cold for their cars.

Poor Massa was hit in the head by a spring lost by Barrichello's car, lost conscience and crashed. He has been taken by helicopter to Budapest's hospital but it seems he is not in danger, according to Flavio Briatore.

Did everyone watch all three qualifying sessions today?

They mentioned the Torro Rosso let go Sebastian Borday in favor of Jaime Alguersua? Was Borday that bad of A driver?

No, I was watching the Mont Ventoux climb on the Tour de France. Final standings after this stage are Contador first, Andy Schleck second, Lance Armstrong third. Chapeau! Tomorrow is the final stage around Paris, which should not change this.

That is good news. Rubens must be feeling pretty down. It was a part off his car that hit Massa. They are both Brazilians and good friends.
Could you image, charging along at 120+ then getting knocked unconscious. Next thing you know there is a wall 10 feet in front of you.

Indeed so. In spite of all the enhancements to driver safety, since Ayrton Senna's untimely death, there are still the inherent risks involved - another recent example being, Henry Surtees, the son of John Surtees, who sadly died, in a Formula 2 race. It makes a mockery of the agonising antics, displayed by 'soccer players'!
