King of Pop Michael Jackson died yesterday of cardiac arrest. This comes as a big shock for everyone as he had been scheduled to perform live in London for 50 performances in a comeback tour beginning on July 13.
I know of a close friend who would have been terribly sad to hear this news today.
May God rest his soul in peace.

It’s a tad bad that FOTA won’t be forming any breakaway league next year. I was really looking forward to an alternate formula 1 league next year, one that would not have been bound by the preposterous rules that FIA sets out for teams every couple of years just to prove that they’re the real bosses.
Things seemed to be coming to a standstill but Max Mosley and Luca Di Montezemolo have resolved all issues to FOTA’s satisfaction. Anyway, it is a whiff of fresh air for formula 1 that Max Mosely won’t stand for re-election.

If you see her, say hello
she might be in Tangier
She left here last early spring
Is living there I hear
Say for me that I’m all right
though things get kind of slow
She might think that I’ve forgotten her
don’t tell her it isn’t so.
We had a falling-out
like lovers often will
And to think of how she left that night
it still brings me a chill
And though our separation
it pierced me to the heart
She still lives inside of me
we’ve never been apart.
If you get close to her
kiss her once for me
I always have respected her
for doing what she did and getting free
Oh, whatever makes her happy
I won’t stay in the way
Though the bitter taste still lingers on
from the night I tried to make her stay
I see a lot of people
as I make the rounds
And I hear her name here and there
as I go from town to town
And I’ve never gotten used to it
I’ve just learned to turn it off
Either I’m too sensitive
or else I’m getting soft.
Sundown, yellow moon,
I replay the past
I know every scene by heart
they all went by so fast
If she’s passing back this way
I’m not that hard to find
Tell her she can look me up
if she’s got the time.

FIA’s International Court of Appeal has cleared the disputed design of double-decker diffusers. This comes as good news for Brawn, Williams and Toyota since they are using those diffusers in their formula 1 cars. Ferrari and others had disputed that those diffusers were illegal. So this comes as a huge blow to them.
Ferrari in their official statement have said it will take them quite some time to make the necessary changes to bring their cars at par with their competitors’ cars.
It looks like Jenson Button’s dream run will continue at the Shanghai GP.

Formula 1 season kicked in last week and it’s beginning to catch some pace with the Petronas Malaysian GP on the coming weekend. The opening race at Australia turned out to be a dampener because of Ferrari’s dismal show but Ferrari’s expected to put their house in order in the coming weeks.
It’s 02 D 09 H 39 M to the Petronas GP now. Lets see how this season turns out to be!

Five o’clock in the morning
You ain’t home
I can’t help thinking that’s strange
Baby I just want you to know
I won’t go through it again
Yes, those clouds are closing in
And I will not accept this as a part of my life
I will not live in fear
Of what may be
And the lessons I have learned …
I would rather be alone than watch you
Spinning that wheel for me
You’ve got a thing about danger
Ain’t you getting what you want from me
You’ve got a thing about strangers
Baby that’s what we used to be
You’ve got a thing about danger baby
I guess the hungry just can’t see
One of these days
You’re gonna bring some home to me
Six o’clock in the morning you ain’t home
I can’t help thinking that’s strange
It seems that everybody takes their chances
Oh yeah, we’re standing in the rain
And I will not accept this as
a part of my life …
How can you love me
When you are playing with my life
You say give me time and I’ll do better I swea
Give me time and I’ll lead you back to despair
And I don’t want to go back there
