Ambition is more than the talent … these were the words from Casey Stoner to Valentino Rossi when they shook hands in the Repsol Honda garage after the race in which Valentino took Casey down in lap 8 of 27 at the Jerez MotoGP. Valentino apologize for his massive mistake he did and booth seemed to be fine later.
For sure there are many reasons for Stoner to be pissed about Rossis manoeuvre as he had been second place and good chance for the podium. But also Rossi was in good place and with the potential to win or get on the podium he took his chance.
As this is just the beginning of the 2011 MotoGP season I’m sure we will see many more battles like this as the competitors are really close together this season. I’m glad it wasn’t a very bad crash and both riders are fine. For Rossi it was still a good result to finish fifth and get some important points for the championship. A lucky winner in the rain of Spain was Nicky Hayden which took the first Ducati podium for 2011 with his 3rd place. This brings him in the GP standings into fourth place and ahead of team mate Rossi. Still, Casey is with a total of 25 points 2 points ahead of Nicky and 5 of Valentino.
Next stop will be the Grand Prix at Jerez de La Frontera in Spain.

You like action movies? Than don’t miss this one.
Created by the award winning director Joe Wright the movie looks really promising to me. Hanna, played by Saorise Ronan which had been nominated for an Oscar by the age of 16 for her performance in Antonement, re-teams here with the Antonement director Joe Wright.
In the movie Saoirse Ronan plays a 14-year-old Eastern European girl raised by her father (Eric Bana) to be a cold-blooded killing machine. Cate Blanchett also stars in the film as an icy intelligence operative on a mission to find Bana, a former CIA operative, but they get to Hanna first.
What makes the movie even better is the soundtrack, created by “The Chemical Brothers”.

Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia when 2.2 million individuals and more than 2,000 businesses turned their lights off for one hour to take a stand against climate change. Only a year later and Earth Hour had become a global sustainability movement with more than 50 million people across 35 countries/territories participating. Global landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, CN Tower in Toronto, Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, and Rome’s Colosseum, all stood in darkness, as symbols of hope for a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.
In March 2009, hundreds of millions of people took part in the third Earth Hour. Over 4000 cities in 88 countries/territories officially switched off to pledge their support for the planet, making Earth Hour 2009 the world’s largest global climate change initiative.
On Saturday 27 March, Earth Hour 2010 became the biggest Earth Hour ever. A record 128 countries and territories joined the global display of climate action. Iconic buildings and landmarks from Asia Pacific to Europe and Africa to the Americas switched off. People across the world from all walks of life turned off their lights and came together in celebration and contemplation of the one thing we all have in common – our planet.
Earth Hour 2011 will take place on Saturday 26 March at 8.30PM (local time). This Earth Hour we want you to go beyond the hour, so after the lights go back on think about what else you can do to make a difference. Together our actions add up.
I’m not so much into flickr but as much I have seen on flickr this is one of the most amazing photostream in my opinion.
