True story: the winning driver of last weekend's Grand Prix of Toronto (Champ car race formerly known as the Molson Indy) is WILL POWER of Team Australia. Yes, apparently that's his real name, and a fine moniker for any athlete really. Just ask the media, who are really cracking themselves up with an avalanche of super clichés, such as "Power of the Will". HA!! (groan)
It made me wonder if Will has a brother named Max Power, which is one of my favourite all-time Homer Simpson pseudonyms: "Nobody snuggles with Max Power. You strap yourself in and feel the G's!"
However, American Formula One driver Scott Speed of Team Toro Rosso/Red Bull still holds the title for best name in motorsports. It's just so unfortunate that he's soooo much slower than all the other Formula One drivers.
In other news, my favourite Finnish cyborg, Kimi Räikönnen (Team Ferrari) won the F1 British Grand Prix this weekend, so maybe firing that Stepney guy was a good move - Ferrari has won two races in a row since they booted their renegade spy engineer. Kimi is super hot, despite having a pretty gay name and the droning voice of a robot, so here's a photo of him because, hey, a girl can dream, okay?
