German GP – How did I do last time?
Well I said the lies, deceit and manipulation would leave a bad taste in many mouths and boy did it, with the team orders, the Stewards leaving it so late to investigate Hamilton and the panicked pit stops for intermediate tyres, the words “Arse” and “Elbow” describe the German GP well. This of course can be attributed to Pre Mercury Retrograde jitters, yes folks it’s that time of year again, when Mercury, the planet of communication, goes backwards and electronics, software, computers and communication goes on the fritz. So stand by for the sound of bricks being dropped resonating through the pitlane this weekend and James Vowels had better update his CV because he may find his P:45 in the post on Monday. This weekend the Moon is in Aquarius, this could see the feeling of being prepared to do anything for a cause. On Friday there is a Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Aquarius, it is also the longest Lunar Eclipse for a long time, about 1 and a half hours, this says it’s time to think about the causes close to you, are they worth your time and effort? Do you feel good about supporting them? There could also be a Karmic reaction if your causes are damaging to the planet.
Astrologically speaking this weekend, the moon moves from Scorpio to Sagittarius, this shows a need to cling on to a belief and seek the truth, so many will cling to the belief that they are right, that their way is right and a need to find a better way.
The sun is also on the move, it moves into Leo on Sunday, this will see a lot of posturing, playing to the crowds and possibly tantrum throwing as the need to be the centre of attention takes over.
What can we expect to see for the Hungarian Grand Prix?
Mood for the weekend – Page of Spears
What to look out for – The World
Outcome – Death (Please don’t worry, Death doesn’t mean physical death)
Mood for the weekend: Page of Spears
On the card, a young Unsullied Soldier stands outside the gates of Mereen watching a dragon fly overhead.
The suit of Spears represents the element of fire, which shows us passion, creativity, pizzazz and Joie de Vive.
This weekend good news will come about regarding a new project or a new situation arising . New adventures could also come out of this weekend too.
With this weekend being in the middle of Silly Season, this could mean a new drive for someone, a young someone may be on the table. Could Charles Leclerc be getting his Ferrari call up?
What to look out for: The World
On the card, The map of Westeros is surrounded the sigil animals of the four main Westerosi families, the Lion of the Lannisters, the Stag of the Baratheons, the Dragon of the Targaryens and the Direwolf of the Starks.
This is a Major Arcana card, this symbolises the importance of the answer to this question.
This is the last card in the Major Arcana and it symbolises the end of a cycle. It’s time to move on from the previous part of your life, you’ve put all the pieces in place, you’ve overcome the trials and challenges set before you and you’ve succeeded and now it’s time to leave all that behind and choose your next path.
Following on from the previous card, this is saying, you’ve worked hard to prove you’re ready for the next part in your career and it’s time to take that next step towards everything you’ve planned and worked hard for. Again, I think someone is on the move, someone who’d been honing his craft and now it’s time to take another step towards getting what he wants. This could point to any number of drivers, Leclerc, Ocon, Ricciardo and Sainz to name a few.
On the card, Arya Stark stands in the Hall of Faces in the House of Black and White. In her hand, she holds her sword, Needle.
This is also a Major Arcana card.
Before I start, this does not mean a physical death, no matter what Hollywood says, it stands for a metaphorical death in this instance, the ending of something, a job, a relationship or a particular part of life, it’s time to move on,
Change is coming, life changing, much needed change is going to sweep over someone but this change can’t be stopped, it’s already in motion and there is no use in fighting it, just let it sweep over you because it is desperately needed in order for you to move forward. Again, this is another card saying change is coming, but this time there is no running away from it.
There will be much needed change for someone this weekend, change that has been a long time in coming as a need to move forward towards their ultimate goal. Could Ferrari actually be thinking about removing that irremovable stain on the seat known as Kimi Raikkonen? Could they be thinking of abandoning their decades old policy of having number 1 and 2 drivers and also bringing in a relatively untried driver. Could Renault be thinking of signing a French driver at the expense of a Spaniard and erasing all aspects of Red Bull from their team?
Well this reading is telling a very straightforward story, changes and moving towards ultimate goals, with the first card being a Page it will more than likely be a young driver on the move. These changes are desperately needed for everyone to be able to move on. It seems to be pointing to Esteban Ocon and Charles Leclerc but don’t quote me on that.
The 2001 Hungarian GP
“For the millions of television viewers around the world the Hungarian GP of 2001 will not be remembered as a classic. It was not even close. In fact it was quite dreadful. One of the dullest races for years,“ reported grandprix.com
Lest we today forget, the F1 halcyon days of the late 1990’s and early noughties were not always the golden era some fans of the sport recall. Ok, maybe those who view this era with rose tinted spectacle were Michael Schumacher fans and on this day Michael and Ferrari were as dominant as any team and driver ever at an F1 race.
After the opening lap shenanigans there were just three overtaking manoeuvres at the Hungaroring and one of those was Jenson Button passing two pedestrian Minardis following a penalty for jumping the start.
In fact the only real pass of the race was on lap 10 when Jean Alesi appeared to make his car a foot narrower as he wedged his Jordan through the smallest of gaps to overtake the Jaguar of Pedro de la Rosa.
Yet the day belonged to Maranello with a Schumacher/Barichello 1-2 which clinched Michael’s 4thdrivers’ title and his 51st race win put him on a par with the ‘professor’ – Alain Prost.
Ferrari also clinched their 11th constructors’ title, and few would believe at the time the Scuderia would press on for three more years and deliver their most successful era in F1 racing.
A well-known F1 publication observed at the time: “One can argue that after the death of Ayrton Senna, Schumacher was the only giant but that is not fair to Michael nor to his rivals. He could do nothing to alter the chronology. And he delivered the wins.
Now he is wrapping up most of the other Formula 1 records available. Fangio’s five World Championships could be equalled. It might even be beaten. Michael will pick up Prost’s total of World Championship points by the end of this year or perhaps early next year.
The only record that Michael may struggle to get in his career is to beat Ayrton Senna’s record of pole positions. That will take at least two years even if he takes pole at every race‚ and that is not going to happen”.
Of course Schumacher did go on to beat Senna’s record of poles, 68-65. Ironically it was to be the German’s pole position in 2006 at San Marino in 2006 that was his 66th, breaking Ayrton Senna’s 12-year-old record.
