Porsche 936

.


acrylic on paper 5x8" sold


the 936 has in my mind,
always been an underestimated Porsche.
even though it won Le Mans 3 times.
sitting between the 917 and 956
it had a lot to live up to...
.
is over at F1 Fanatic
always my first read of the day
especially the comments are good fun!
i think the Bellof painting looks great
thanks Keith!

The winner was unexpected,
Alonso and Renault did another great job

GP Silverstone '08

429


Starting fourth,first Lewis has a look at the left,trying to go through the middle of Webber in front of him and Kovalainen on pole,but he thought better of it...just as well because Raikonen to his left got boxed in behind the two front row starters...

moving to the right he squeezed between the pit wall and Webber ,easily outdraging him towards the first corner...only Kovalainen left...

Kovalainen and Hamilton are now going side by side through the first corner,banging wheels,Heikki has a big moment,it looks like Lewis is ahead but Heikki catches his slide and won't have any of it...

Lewis Hamilton has to be content sitting in the spray of Kovalainen...visibility zero...this is just the start...more excitement will follow...
