The Iceman is back at Ferrari. Kimi left Lotus for whatever reasons that may be to come back home to the Tifosi and Ferrari. Who would have thought the guy Ferrari paid, essentially, to go away would be welcomed back with open arms. He’s more relaxed now, Ferrari is a bit more relaxed now. Sure Lotus had or has one of the best working environments you could and can ask for. But when paychecks and bonuses aren’t being paid, allegedly, something has to give. As a huge Kimi fan and a huge Ferrari fan, I welcome the ol’ boy back.
This is the Valencia street circuit in Spain, it has been two years since this track has been visited. The sad part about this track is the fact of the part of town it is in. People using the beautiful bridge to score some drugs, homeless people are all over the area. It’s a shame what this beautiful track has turned into. Hell, it’s the home of one of the craziest accidents of the modern era.
A great racer and an even better person. Sean was one of the few professional drivers that responded to the public through social media. I traded PMs with him a few times through a message board. He was always helpful in explaining things, sharing his insight from the other side of things. He was a very skilled driver. Very smooth, very calculated, and very precise. He was a giant killer and was the first driver to take a Porsche Cup Car through the Eau Rouge curve with out lifting. Yes, he’s that good, he kept the throttle to the floor through Eau Rouge. Sean brought us amazing moments like these.
And this ridiculous drive. And yes, he muscled by a GT3R at the beginning. A car that is more engineered and more powerful than his 997.1 Cup Car.
Chris Harris had the pleasure of driving with him and wrote an amazing article about him.
He was one of the best, in my opinion the best, Porsche Cup Car driver to ever walk this Earth and that’s how I will remember Sean.
Rest In Peace Sean Edwards; 12/6/1986 – 10/15/2013.
