Remembering the USGP - 2003

In recent years, this is the week on the calendar I would be making my annual trek to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for my home grand prix. There is plenty of blame to go around, but the lack of a US date on the calendar is a wrong that must be righted. All week, I will post some visual memories of my home race.

The 2003 race was again won by Michael Schumacher, he would dominate the track during his career, and this win effectively sewed up the championship for him. Kimi Raikkonen remained in mathematical contention, but Juan Pablo Montoya was eliminated from the drivers championship after he received a penalty for an incident with Rubens Barrichello.

This is a photo from the first pit walkabout, and that is the famous "yard of bricks." Fans at this race were treated to something usually reserved for the prawn sandwich crowd, close up views of work in the garages, and maybe, just maybe, a glimpse of one of their heroes.
