Spanish GP predictions

If I'm right I'll buy myself a San Migüel beer

I'm sure Ferrari will have made significant improvements and I'm sure when I was in Puerto Banus* Marbella yesterday I spotted Ross (Brawn that is)

* One site I once posted into blocked 'Puerto Banus'

After drinking San Miguel in Spain since the 60's, I was surprised to find out its Filipino...
Marbella used to have a large Brit expat community.
A Brit gal pal married to a Swede lives in a house overlooking the former Saudi Kings compound with the mostly Arab nightclub right across the street. Her Family owns the place since post WWII.

Hi Redliner and Teutone,

Yes, San Miguel Beer is a Filipino beer brand I don't know if there is a brewery/bottling plant in Spain, I hope so, so that it would be "fresh" when Redliner treats himself to a few.

For Teutone, if you're in LA, look up a few "oriental grocery stores", or even Filipino grocery stores, as they definitely carry these on the shelf.

For the Spanish GP predictions:
Lewis
Nico
Ricciardo

The first time I had a San Miguel beer was about 45 years ago, in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
That's probably why I always thought it came from a Spanish brewery.
San Miguel was widely advertised and quite popular even then, and still is.

I guess it's yes and no...
In 1953, Soriano signed the "Manila Agreement" which allowed the Spanish beer brewing subsidiary La Segarra to brew and sell beer under the San Miguel brand. This company, renamed as San Miguel, Fábricas de Cerveza y Malta (now Mahou-San Miguel Group) in 1957, was a separate, independent company that had exclusive rights to use the San Miguel brand in Europe.[3]

In 1983, San Miguel sold its remaining minority interest in the Spanish company (San Miguel, Fábricas de Cerveza y Malta, S.A.). The two companies had since operated independently of one another. San Miguel, Fábricas de Cerveza y Malta, SA, however, still sported a logo similar to its Philippine counterpart. The Spanish company enjoyed success with San Miguel in its home market. Also, it was the number one Spanish beer exported throughout Europe. Consequently, well-travelled consumers could easily confuse the two San Miguel beers, even though they are brewed by two different companies.[3]

There seem to be similarities to the American Budweiser beer, and the Czech Budweiser Pilsener situation. The latter founded in the town of Budweis when the area was in Bohemia, German speaking, and part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
Except the old Anheuser Busch never had shares in the Czech entity, and their name brand lawsuits pre dating WWI were finally resolved after the fall of the iron curtain.
I an amusing side note, when Anheuser Busch tried to buy the Czech brewery, people of the town of Budweis took out a half page ad in the local paper; "Anheuser Busch, this Bud is not for you."

Anyhow,
Cheers

Mercedes aren't for people who want to have one, it's for people who can have one.

Well done Chicky, I'll treat you to a San Migüel

The nearest San Migüel brewery to me is right next to Málaga airport and you can smell the brewing process when you get off an aeroplane

Hi James,

You may treat yourself to a San Miguel, compliments of me And I'll treat myself to a Johnnie Walker Blue...double!

To be honest, during the last 3 laps of the race...I was really rooting for Nico to win 1st!!!

Best regards,

The final stages were good racing. I was rooting for Nico as well. A few more laps........?
Good drive from Ricciardo, and from 15 to fourth by Vettel was a effort worthy of a champion.

The Ferrari actually getting lapped towards the end of the race, ouch.

If Red Bull gets their power plant up to the level of Mercedes, it will get very interesting.
Cheers (with my Pilzner Urquell)
