Felipe Massa drives for Ferrari and is not Lewis' team mate. Fernando Alonso is.

Thanks Anon 1, I guess it was an oversight. All the same, he did beat the field too including both Massa & Alonso.

Anon 2, I decided awhile back on this same blog to give Kenyan football , black-out. Reasons being that KFF has not been able to get their act together. I'll not be suprised if heads roll after Kenya was bundled out by of all others Eritrea from the Cup of Nations qualifiers
