superwin at superwet monza
Earlier today, Sebastian Vettel and Scuderia Toro Rosso took their first wins today at a rain-drenched Monza with minimal attrition. That's right, kids - Vettel really did win this one, and all the heavy hitting Ferraris and McLarens could do was watch his rooster-tail of water accelerate away.
Monza's an aero-heavy track, so it shouldn't be too surprising that the Adrian Newey designed Toros and Red Bulls did extremely well - so well that the cars were able to run their dry aero package in the wet, giving them an extra 10-15 kph on the Monza's long straights.
Anyway, I know it wasn't a particularly sunny race, and it was far far away from Florida, but Vettel's win seemed pretty super to me.
