So I was going through an old forum I used to always go to [Media Blvd] ...and I start searching for my old posts [because I had nothing better to do]. And I came across an old post of mine. Completely blew me away how such a good writer/reporter I was. It's funny cause these days I find writing a perfect sentence, let alone a whole review would take forever!

Class of 2004
Well, here's my personal review on this season. I just thought of it since i was so bored and don't what else to post. So...umm...well...be sure to read it and maybe make ur own review or something eh?
The best this season
I personally don't know what to say about this guy. He's like simply the 'perfect driver'. I mean, he totally ruled this season scoring 8 pole positions and 13 victories. Not only that, he keep smashing into the record books breaking his own record! What else does he have to do to prove that he is 'the best'?
I feel totally sorry for Rubinho. He is a great driver. But it's only the fact that whatever he does for Ferrari, either victories or etc. he is still overshadowed by Michael.
Jense has totally been one of my favorites this year. He's like form a zero to a hero! Not that i'm saying he was a bad driver before, what i meant is that he has changed from being a....'just okay' driver to one of the best drivers this season. Now he's like everywhere! It's like you see him up on the podium every other week!
Juan Pablo Montoya
He was fantastic last year, but this year he's a bit...umm...well...he's getting really boring. Maybe it's because the young guns such as Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso has been stealing the spotlight form him lately? I don't know. But i really think it was sweet of him to win the last race this year for Williams as an appreciation gift. Why didn't Ralf thought of that too huh?
I have to say Fernando had a few 'almost victory' attempts this year but it all didn't work out. Remember Spa? He was there, in front of Raikkonen and he blew it off! He's just trying too hard i guess. But there's always next year for him. 4th in the championship isn't bad though...hmm...isn't that what he got last year too? I forgot...sorry...
It has been a tough season for Kimi. I mean, remember how his engines keep blowing up at the first half of the season? It's a total nightmare, i know! But he made a major comeback on the second half of the season when he actually won the Belgium GP. All thanks to the MP4-19B, McLaren's "It's not a new car" new car. It's okay, there's still next season Kimi!
The Consistent drivers
I can't believe Renault kick out Jarno Trulli! Even after his maiden victory in Monaco? I'll totally understand if Trulli was out of Renault like at the end of the season, well that's what normally happens to other drivers right? But with only 2 races left? Why oh why? Is this Flavio's fault? I don't know...maybe someone should explain to me what 'trulli' happened!
Sato has been really impressive this year. Not as impressive as Jense though, but who really cares about that right?
He may not be up there on the podium, but he has scored some pretty decent points for Sauber this season. Maybe luck could change for him next season since he had already signed a contract to drive for Renault.
Just trying too hard
Haven't seen much action from him this year. Hmm...accept for his clumsy overtaking attempts (which usually knocks someone out of the race or sometimes even himself) and not forgetting that spectacular crash at the United States GP of course!
Massa's driving to me is a bit weird...it's totally the opposite from everyone else. Throwing and sliding his car through different appex on every corner of every lap and generally over-driving makes him go faster, but driving smoothly without making major errors or mistakes makes him go slower. Hmm...isn't it supposed to be the other way around?
Could this season get any worst for Nick? After his contract expired with Sauber last year, he had no choice but to drive for Jordan for free. And now he's stuck driving a slow car and that makes him a slow driver. Maybe if he was in the top teams his talents could shine through.
Thank god Mark is driving for Williams next year. Now that he is in a top team, he can definately start to battle with the likes of Schumi, Monty, Jense and Kimi rather than being stuck behind with the Jordans, Minardis and Toyotas.
Not getting any better
It's sad that we all might not see him in Formula 1 next year. You know...with Ford pulling out of F1, Christian might not have a contract next year. I hope that some wealthy rich guy would save Jaguar though, i can't imagine not seeing the green cars next year.
Cristiano Da Matta
Hopefully he doesn't repeat his clumsy moments like last year. They even gave him the nick name 'the spinning Villeneuve'!
Where has he been?
My thoughts?... About my Felipe Massa comments, "Throwing and sliding his car through different appex on every corner of every lap and generally over-driving makes him go faster" wtf? Where did i found those words?? And who the fuck is Giorgio Pantano? Where the fuck did he go?
