Having won in Korea last year, Fernando Alonso and PUMA’s partner team Scuderia Ferrari arrived in the Asian country for the second Korean Grand Prix with high hopes for a strong result, particularly as the combination had finished a close second in the previous week’s Japanese Grand Prix.
This seems to be a week of congratulations: Since I last blogged from Suzuka, Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull Racing have secured a second consecutive world drivers’ championship, and equally significantly – certainly from my own perspective - is that PUMA has announced a new partnership with MERCEDES GP PETRONAS and Michael Schumacher.
Thursday, September 1st at 10:10 pm EST (Friday, Sept. 2nd 11:10 am Korean time) Usain Bolt will be back in action in his bid to remain the world’s fastest man at 200 meters. If all goes well – as nothing is ever certain in sprinting – Usain will make it through both the qualifying and semi-final heats to secure a
place in the final on September 3rd. Having already posted the year’s fastest time of 19.86 seconds on
June 9th, Usain Bolt will be in an excellent position to vie for another world title, and despite last Sunday’s
unfortunate result, Bolt remains a strong favorite to win.
