Chemistry In Life Third Edition
Well, sorry to say. I have to inform you about this first. A few days ago, a Cessna fell down and sunk in the Lido Lake, Bogor. This accident caused five people to die, including the pilot. The evacuation of the victims was very hard and was stopped for a while. But, finally, the rescue team should evacuate all the victims. The difficult one was when they tried to evacuate the pilot. He was tied in his seatbelt. And two of the victims were from Australia
Moved to politics. The president campaign is become more crowded in the latest days. It seems that now everyone really wants to see their president candidate. Well...
And, the leader of GAM, Hasan Tiro, and two of GAM members, were caught in Sweden by Swedish government last week. They were caught in their interment place. The two people were imprisoned, while Tiro wasn't because he was sick at that time. Indonesian government immediately sent a team to help Swedish investigate the GAM members. The government also sent a translator to help them translate the Acehnese language.
Last Saturday night, the Final Concert of AFI was held. The winner was Tia, who came from Solo, but joined the academy as the academia from Semarang. Second was Haikal from Medan, and the third was Micky from Jakarta. But the main things, I think, is that the coming of two president candidate, Wiranto and Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, to this concert. They were interviewed by two of former AFI members which also came to the concert, Mawar and Kia, and were forced to sing. The funny thing is that when Trie Utami asks Wiranto about his desire when he was child, and what his job is. Wiranto said, his job is a singer and his hobby is military. Gee...
Well, the last segment this week. First came from Euro 2004. From Group D, Czech becomes the first team which continue to the quarter final after beat Netherlands 3-2. They still remain one more match against Germany, but however, that wouldn't influence Czech's road to quarter final. Well... Viva Czech~!! Viva Nedved~!!! Great Team~!!!
From Group A, Greece and Portugal also go to the quarter final. Portugal won 1-0 from Spain, while Greece loses from Russia 1-2. Though Greece loses, they still move on to the quarter final. A new historical story~!!
From Group B, the team which move on to the quarter final were France and England. Well, at the first time England loses from France, I think that it is difficult to them to go to the quarter final. But, they won from Switzerland the next match, and last night, they beat Croatia.
And from Group C, though Italy beat Belgium 2-1, they couldn't continue to the quarter final, because the result of Sweden-Denmark match was draw 2-2. Therefore, the team in this group which go on to quarter final were Denmark and Sweden.
Let's move to Formula 1 arena. I have enhanced news this week, as I got more information from FIA official website and F1-Live.com.
Welcome to Indianapolis, USA. The qualification was so great, as Rubens Barrichello got the pole, in front of his team-mate, Michael Schumacher. In the second row, there are BAR Honda drivers, Takuma Sato and Jenson Button, followed by the Williams BMW duo, Juan Pablo Montoya and Ralf Schumacher, then by Kimi Raikkonen, Olivier Panis, Fernando Alonso, and Mark Webber.
Before the formation lap, it seems that Monty's car have a little problem. The team decided to change it with a spare car, but it seems that they are too late to do that. They do it after the formation lap has just started. By the way, Monty still started... from the pit lane.
Lap 1, the Ferrari duo was starting well, as usual, while Alonso made a very good start and overtook Sato on the first corner. In the meantime, there's a little accident involving 4 drivers. At that time, Cristiano Da Matta, who was at the tail of the field and lifted off to avoid his team-mate, hit by Christian Klien from behind. Then, Klien is hit by Felipe Massa. Giorgio Pantano and Gianmaria Bruni, which are behind them, are both taken out in the ensuing chaos, causing them all (Klien, Massa, Bruni, and Pantano) to be out of the race, while Giancarlo Fisichella's car was also off on the grass. Soon after it, a Safety Car was dispatched. (Well, I hate to say about this...) At that time, Da Matta entered the pit to repair his car, and rejoined at the back of the field.
Two laps after pitting, Da Matta entered the pit again for further repair. Safety Car is still on the track, with Barrichello, Schumi, Alonso, Sato, Raikkonen, Button, Ralf, Panis, Webber, and David Coulthard behind.
The Safety Car goes back to the pit at lap 6. All the mess on the Turn 1 has been cleared. The race is restarted. Schumi overtake Barrichello at the first corner, made him the leader at that time.
Lap 9, Schumi was 1 second in front of his team-mate. But, going down towards the corner, Alonso has a little problem with his car. Apparently, he suffered a tyre failure and spins into the wall. Yellow flag was out.
Lap 10, another accident happened. Now it happened to Ralf Schumacher. He loses control of his Williams car and goes backwards into the outside wall after spinning 360 degrees. His car came to rest at the middle of the road with wreckages all over the track. Again, the Safety Car was dispatched. Ralf was trying to get out from his car, but it seems he has problem. It seems that he have pain on his back. MY GOD~!! How could this happen??? I was shocked at that time, while seeing the safety team trying to help Ralfie to get out of the car, and seeing that Schumi always looking at Ralfie when passed that place. Well, I'm also worried about Ralfie... ~_~
Lap 11, both of the Ferraris entered the pit. Schumi came out in the first position, while Barrichello out in the sixth. Behind Schumi, there are Sato, Button, Webber and Montoya.
Then, finally, Ralf could be removed from his car at lap 18. In the same time, Da Matta slowed and stopped out of the track. I don't know what the problem with Da Matta was.
Lap 20, Ralf finally taken off to hospital with the ambulance and medical team. The wreckages were cleared, and the race restarted. There was only 13 drivers remained. Ah... hopefully there is no something bad with Ralfie... As you know, I have almost the same feeling as Schumi. We both worried of Ralf... Well, at the tribune, the entire spectator was standing and giving support to the medical team and Ralf which was in their way to hospital. Thank you everyone...
Lap 25, Sato entered the pit, and out in the tenth place. When Sato entered the pit, Button has done his pit stop, but his car apparently has a problem. Button is out of the race at lap 26. At the laps after, Sato overtook many drivers and got the fourth position at lap 40. By the way, his way to overtaking was so smart, as he only use the standard way, but bravely doing that.
Lap 45, Heidfeld has an engine failure, and out of the race. Sato was pitting at the same time.
Lap 48, Fisichella has a puncture, came into the pit to change 3 tyres, and dropped to the tenth place.
Lap 50, Barrichello, who was leading at that time, entered the pit, and came out behind Schumi, who was the leader after Barrichello entered. Barrichello quickly chased after Schumi and made him under the pressure. A great battle of Ferrari~!! But anyway, Schumi was still leading in front of Barrichello.
Lap 57, Monty stopped for the last time. Yet, when he rejoined the race, he received the words that he is black-flagged for starting in the spare car. It seems that he black-flagged because he is too late to decide to use the spare car. He and his team decided to use it when the formation lap has just started, whereas, the rule said that they must decided to use a spare car 15 seconds before formation lap. Poor Williams BMW and Monty...
Lap 58, Schumacher was farther and father from Barrichello. At the same time, Raikkonen overtook Webber for the seventh.
Lap 61, Webber is out because of engine failure. Well, the same as Sato faced three races before... You know that, the engine is burned out...
Lap 62, Sato was chasing after Trulli, pushing him so hard, and overtook him, though both of Sato and Trulli have to come across the grass. Sato is third at that time.
Fisichella suddenly slows at the lap 66 because of hydraulic leak. He was overtaken by Baumgartner, who made it the first point for the Minardi today.
Finally, Schumi won the race again, with Barrichello and Sato behind him. Trulli was fourth and Panis was fifth. Two laps after, there comes the McLaren duo, Raikkonen and Coulthard. Three laps behind Schumi, there are Baumgartner and Fisichella. The last point goes to Baumgartner.
Schumi and Barrichello greeted Sato for his podium. Everyone also greeted Sato, including Ferrari's team and supporters. What a miracle~!!! Well, Sato is great today. Sugoi ne~!!! Finally my wishes granted. Now, at the podium, there are all my lovely driver, the Ferrari duo (Schumi-Barrichello) and Sato.
At the press conference, Schumi looked that he was not so happy. He said that he really worried about Ralf, and hope that nothing bad would happen. When the team kept telling him that things weren't bad, everything is alright, and Schumi saw himself that it is true, he kept a bit worried of his brother. Well, siblings are just siblings. Though they had to fight for the different team, they still brothers, and if anything happened to one of them, the other would be worry. But, the main thing is that Schumi is the elder brother. How an elder brother couldn't worry about his younger brother when things are seems too bad??? It is almost impossible. No, no, it is really impossible. You know, Schumi and Ralf are so close, though now they all had been married, they still often talking and arguing about Formula 1.
In the other side, Barrichello talked about the race and pit stop situation he faced, and Sato said that his podium was because the excellent team which informed him to keep on the fuel and slow down. He also said that the car was very beautiful at that day, to be honest. But he just feels fantastic with the third place. Me, too...
Well, despite Schumi's worry about Ralf, Barrichello's thoughts about his race, and Sato's feeling fantastic about his first podium, let's pray for Ralf. Hopefully he will get well soon, nothing bad happened again to him, and he could driving back in the next race, at Magny-Cours, France.
And the latest news I got from the website, and newspaper, is that Ralf only had a little pain on his back, and a small brain concussion. Ah... yokatta na... For Ralf, I hope, really, really hope, you would be fine soon. Get well soon, guy~! Everyone love and missed you... For Schumi, I know you are worried about Ralf. Me, too. But, remember, everything will be alright. Though he couldn't finish race that day, and see you in the podium, I know he will be proud. So please, don't worry about him. Everything is alright, OK? Well, actually I also really worried about him... I almost cried when seeing him injured. And the last is for Sato... Omedetou ne~! Good job. Hope you would get the podium again next time. Ganbatte ne~!
One more time, minna-chan... Let's pray for Ralf. Though he only had a little pain on his back, and a little brain concussion, let's pray for him, for his health and good luck. Hope he would get well soon, and drive the Williams car again. Gee... how many times I said about this... Alright, see you next time in the Chemistry In Life "laboratory". I'm Dian Anggraini. Good bye~!
