Yeah the new safety car rule sucks. There were already problems with it last season and it only ruins many drivers' races, especially for the ones who are leading.

It's back in late 90's.
Also in 2003 Brazil both Ferrari drivers were out of race, with Rubens had retired due to engine failure while Michal's was due to an accident.

Actually they had three engine failures. :wink: Or at least I think Massa had an engine problem too, didn't he?

Last time both Ferrari drivers were out of race was in Australian GP 2006. So Australia hasn't been one of the best places for Ferrari. :roll::

It is days like today when people can't help but realize the greatness of Michael Schumacher. Michael has had those kinds of weekends and always finished in the points. I've seen it. You've seen it.

Wow. From a Ferrari point of view. Wow. Speechless.

Kovalainen was brilliant.

Hamilton was mistake free.

Nuff' said.

Great race Hamilton no mistakes Headfeld idem and Rosberg was just great good to see him on the podium. Unlucky for Kovalainen think his place should be second this race.
Bourdais no mistakes unlucky for him he didn't finish although he does have 1 point and oh oh oh oh ferrari seriously they have a lot to discuss about specially Raikkonen it was like I was seeing Heiki driving last year just not World Champion worthy.

Anyway real good race and up to the next GP Flag:##

What a great race today. Lots of drama and action, back to classic F1 stuff. Just need to standardise the aero to get more overtaking and we'll be back where we were 8 years ago, haha :cheesy: :cheesy:, but a great race, can't wait for next weekend, Race number 2

Did you hear the proposition by Flavio to make 2 smaller race sunday instead of 1 race ? I think this idea is bad. If the F1 want to reach more people in the world, the schedule must remain the same. For me at Montreal, the time for the race is normally about 6h or 7h am. we will not be able to see the first part of the race.

Kovalainen was so fast on this race, but Alonso finshed fourth,not Kovalainen.In the final lap he made a very big mistake, and Alonso overtaked him.But was a good debut race in a new car,in a new team, and with a new team mate,who finished first.If Kovalainen will win the next race, Hamilton will have problems in this season.
