Of course a family photo was in order last weekend in Turkey. It was Ferrari’s 800th race afterall. Look at this big happy family (click to enlarge):
Massa is actually smiling sort of properly here! No constipation in sight. When I see him here, I’m reminded of how young he actually is… because he looks sort of baby-ish here.
Daddy Domenicali is certainly excited, he is grinning from ear to ear?
Alonso doesn’t look quite as happy as his step father and step brother. I wonder what’s wrong. Is he constipated this time?
Or is Daddy Domenicali secretly holding the drivers’ hands behind the car? I think that might be it! It explains everything! Massa is happy that Daddy Domenicali is holding his hand… while Alonso isn’t enjoying it as much. Perhaps daddy has sweaty hands? =x
Aww, isn’t this sweet? Another happy Ferrari family photo! It just brings a smile to my face.
But wait… why is Big Daddy D sitting with Alonso*? Is it because he is now the “team leader”? Poor Felipe Baby looks a little put out, no? Just look at him trying to smile (it looks so STRAINED!). Poor baby… or is it the signature constipated expression that Massa has mastered?
Don’t worry Massa, you’re still the favorite son of Big Daddy D. I’m sure of it, so don’t be so emo and THINK POSITIVE for this weekend’s race.
If you have not seen the first Ferrari family photo of the 2010 season, check it out here.
* Side note… is that the Viceroy watch that Alonso was advertising? UGH their dumb campaign worked, I’m a slave to marketing. *bangs head on keyboard*
Did Stefano cry when his step-son Alonso did not finish the last race? All Stefano needs is some eyeliner (or “guyliner”), more hair, black clothing, tight ass pants, and some tears over the championship… just kidding. How can he possibly be emo when darling son Massa is leading the championship?
All kidding aside, Big Daddy D was photographed in these new frames in Shanghai. I’m not used to these glasses, but they’re all right. The glasses are a standard black rectangular frames so I’m afraid I can’t identify the brand or model. I’m not sure if I like the large lens, but I guess it’s a more “masculine” look. A friend of mine who works in an optometry shop claims large 80s glasses are coming back. I’m not so sure about that, though hipsters galore are sporting it. In any case, keep on smiling Steffy… it looks better:
While the race WAS boring, I did find some things to be highly amusing. None of them have to do with driving though…
1. No photo of this… but Martin Brundle having to queue up to speak with Alonso. It was pretty funny how he kept trying to get comments… yet Martin kept getting foiled. oooooh a rare sight!!!
2. Lewis taking one sip of the rose water and then proceeding to spray the rest of the bottle. Guess it isn’t as good as champagne? >)
4. Last, but not least (it might be my favorite even)… Alonso picking up Stefano in joy after his win. Stefano’s expression is priceless!!! He totally was not expecting anything and he even pats Alonso’s shoulder as if to say “OMG down boy, down Alonso!” This photo really does the moment no justice, it should be watched in video format. I think I re-watched this bit a couple times myself (and I laughed like a maniac each time).
