Since there's no discussion of this yet in Oppo, and I can't contain my excitement anymore, I figured I'd start this.

Looks like an excellent start to the season and my favorite underdog, Simona de Silvestro is now teamed with one of my other favorite drivers, Tony Kanaan, so I will officially become a KV racing fanboy this season I guess. After a dismal 2012 with much of it spent as the lone Lotus engine, and thereby WAY down on performance, it's fantastic to see so much promise out of her. Heck, even her 2010 and 2011 seasons were filled with some pretty horrifying crashes, most notably the upside down, flying through the air, hitting the wall, on fire, crash at Indy

Which is of course, in addition to her fiery crash the year before in Texas. The lady simply cannot seem to catch a break and should probably stay away from Ferraris for life. Here's hoping that the 2013 season treats her well, that there are no major accidents, and especially no fire-related ones. After all of her incidents and problems the last couple years, I seriously think she deserves some sort of brass balls persistence award for continuing on in IRL.
