Ron Dennis wasn't satisfied, his drivers finished with only 2 points

After the race I walked back to the city, where I had a meeting with 2 German girls regarding our trip on Great Ocean Road. We found each other on a great side called http://www.coseats.com/.

On the meeting with Kristina and Stella we decided, that our trip will begin the day after tomorrow. A Brazilian guy Bruno will also join us, so the cost for renting the car will be minimal. After a beer I returned back to Duncan's place, where I extended my stay for another day. Thanks man!

Another day in Melbourne
