You might be wondering whether I'm trying to write about the Italian artist Michelangelo; well I'm not! However I'm writing about something Italian. To be precise it's an Italian restaurant I'm writing about. Its name is Michelangelo, situated on the Nawala road Rajagiriya. This is not a very big place but the food is really good.

You'll have seen the fake Chinese and Mongolian restaurants which serves only local food but Michelangelo servers you authentic Italian food.

Sebastian Vettel - 2010 Formula 1 champion!

Last year he couldn’t secure the title although he was way better than Button, and beginning of this season if I were to place a bet on Driver’s Title it would have been either Lewis Hamilton or Sebastian Vettel.

For Hamilton of course things didn’t go well in the start because McLaren was not the fastest car. It was RedBull by far but for Vettel, things never went his way from the start; he was very unfortunate, reckless and he had all sort of trouble. He never led the championship in this season but in my mind I knew he could do it somehow.

Vettel scored 10 amazing poles but he won only 5 races. He was trying way too hard; if he had more patients he could have secured more wins obviously. Theoretically in my mind Hamilton had better chances of winning the championship over the two RedBull drivers because he was stable in the beginning and during the mid-season. His luck faded away for the same reason as Vettel didn’t score more wins.

Interestingly Vettel had to wait till the very last race to become the champion. Vettel did no mistake in the last two races and he surely got the reward – The prestigious Formula 1 drivers’ championship title.

On a side note, I was never a fan of Ferrari and I never liked the attitude of Fernando Alonso. And Ferrari is only the third fastest car at the end of the 2010 Formula 1 season. McLaren showed that they have matched the pace of RedBull both during qualifying and during the race. It’s clearly a good sign for McLaren in the upcoming 2011 season.

RedBull X-Fighters

RedBull has organized a stunt motorbike show at Galle Face green on the 6th November 2010. Myself and couple of my friends went there to see the show. RedBull has given a massive publicity to the event and there was a huge crowd in the ground. Despite that we were able to go to the front and watch the show.
