On The Button

Enjoyed an evening in the company of friends yesterday that spanned several locations as I celebrated a house warming party and a couple of birthdays. Watching the Australian GP this morning was definitely a chore as I didn't get much sleep due to losing an hour with the British summer time starting. The night started in Blackheath and progressed onto Bexleyheath where I joined up with my friends birthday celebrations.

It was a good night and I'm surprised I managed to surface this morning for the start of the F1 season. Thankfully I did as it was a race full of incidents which saw two safety-car periods, finishing with Brawn GP securing the first debut 1-2 finish in 55 years. Jenson Button led from start to finish in Melbourne with team mate Rubens Barrichello in second place. Defending champion Lewis Hamilton who started from the back of the grid managed to work his way through the positions and was awarded third place after Jarno Trulli incurred a time penalty. Malaysia next week and already lots to get excited about!!
