    1) Season 1984: Monaco GP was held under treacherous weather conditions Prost in the McLaren was leading the race while Ayrton Senna in the Toleman was coming through the field with some brilliant overtaking in the wet. After sometime as it looks like that Ayrton could take the lead Prost start waving hands to the officials for stopping the race, although by the time they stop the race Ayrton has already overtaken Prost but because of the rules of F1 the race was counted to be stopped at 2 laps before the original stoppage and Prost was leading at that point of time so was awarded the win with only half points were awarded as the only 50% of the race distance was covered. At the end of the season Prost lost the title to his team mate Niki Lauda by 0.5 point the same half point that he tries to earn in the Monaco GP by avoiding to lost to Senna. The good luck from Monaco becomes the bad luck for the whole season.

    2) Season 2008: The famous Singapore GP after the safety car deployed and all the teams call their drivers to pits Massa in the Ferrari came in the pits as the leader of the race and left the pits as the last car after the technical mishap while Alonso who pitted a lap earlier and was way down at 15 takes the lead of the race because of the same safety car. So one incident results bad luck and good luck for 2 different drivers at the same time.
    The Singapore one cant even come into bad luck or good luck, AFAIK. It was in the hands of Flavio.

    I remember them both but what about your own personal views on bad luck as talked about by Alonso?. He talks about retirements, indirectly.

    Ah. I was just hearing Dario Franchitti's podcast on going into Champ Car instead of F1 back in the early 2000's where it was a MAN'S sport!
    They were running ovals with 1000hp and a manual gearbox with Vmax something around 230-250mph with a draft. They had a crash at Texas speedway during practice where a car went into a wall and the telemetry recorded something like 80G's under impact which is PROPERLY scary stuff.
    Dario said during quali, he hit 240, and while building up speed somewhere around 220mph, his vision started slowly blacking out. Basically by the end of quali, he had tunnel vision and missed his lollipop man and just drove right past him because his field of vision was totally screwed.
    The night before the race, they called in a couple of guys from NASA who looked at the telemetry and were totally amazed at the type of G loads they were subjecting the drivers to. One of the Nasa guys asks, "how many seconds are these guys exposed to this sort of stuff?"
    The drivers reply, "About 2 hours."
    Nasa engineers, "You're definitely going to kill someone this weekend."

    You just don't hear stuff like that from F1. That's why I love how stupid American racing is. It'll do anything to put on a good show

    @NakedTruth
    I don't think you could blame Flavio for what happens to Massa it was rather the fruit of pitlane chaos which even Flavio cannot predict.

    As for what I think of bad luck or good luck w.r.t retirement of any driver from the race, I never pray for any driver to retire from the race but if some one retires from the then I enjoy their reactions to the retirement and also how other drivers reacted to that news.

    @Bilaltq
    I do follow Indycar/champcar races and I think if you want to see some really funny and stupid decisions made by any organization then Indycar board decisions are the kind that you would like. As for that sport being a man's sport because of having 1000hp beast, well F1 also at that same period was making over 950 hp from the V10s which were outstandingly fast too as you could see with almost all the circuit lap records were made at that time. Also, F1 have reached nearly 1500 hp in qualy trim back in the mid 80's with the turbo charged engines so its not how you define man's sport. The only thing that made Indycar/Champcar more dangerous is Ovals on which they race where unlike race tracks there are walls on either side and with no slow chicane to cut down the speeds sometimes crashes lead to death are part of the package. They are trying to cut down the chance of death in any crash especially on Ovals but still the chances are high of a death if there is an unfortunate crash like Dan Wheldon's crash in 2011 Las Vegas race which was an oval race.

    Road tyres does not have any relevance to race tyres other wise no tyre company will compete in motorsport with specifically developed race tyres. What happened in the race was what happens back in Indy 2005 with Michelin, the only difference Michelin found that in the practices and qualifying sessions while Pirelli learned it the hard way in race itself. The minimum recommended tyre pressure were higher then what should be considering higher temperatures that we have during the race. As teams and Pirellis were expecting lower temperatures because of the rain on friday just like yesterday, the higher tyre pressure was used by everyone of them.

    Also, we should thank Mercedes, Ferrari and Lotus for not allowing the changed construction tyres to be used in here. Vettel have said it previously that the change is not for performance but for safety reasons and should be allowed.

    Too bad we couldn't see Kimi's new haircut but congrats for killing Schumi's record even though Schumi's average position is way better than Kimi and the fact that in Schumi's era, points were till 6th. Still, Lotus is to be blamed for Kimi's loss. Should shove Magnums down their throats. :p

    Bad luck?. Human error?... I dont care. We got 3rd, Vettel retired. Kimi down there somewhere. Excellent day for us. YES!.

    Off to German GP.
