Massa
Raikkonen
Trulli
Kovalainen
Kubica
Webber
Piquet
Alonso

which by my maths means:

Massa 48
Kubica 46
Raikkonen 43
Hamilton 38
Heidfeld 28
Kovalainen 20
Webber 18
Trulli 18
Alonso 10
Rosberg 8
Nakajima 7
Coulthard 6
Glock, Vettel and Barrichello 5
Button 3
Bourdais and Piquet 2.

Only Button retired in that race and now only the two force indias (and Super Aguris) who have 0 pts

Ferrari 91
BMW 74
Mclaren 58

you've got to love it when Massa wins as hes always so happy (that Brazilian attitude), unlike when Kimi wins. Poignant that Trulli got Toyota a podium under current circumstances with the death of Ove Andersson. Now theres gonna be biiiiiiiiiiiig discussion about Hamilton's penalty

Hamilton will be soooo fired up for Silverstone. Ron Dennis not happy with the penalty.

Actually in France you have nowhere to go when you try to pass there. The same was the case in Lap 69 when Trulli held on Heikki. I think Trulli took a huge risk of fending off the driver at that point. This kind of an incident took place in 2003, when Montoya fended off Barrichello in a Ferrari but the result was little different. Rubens lost places and Montoya was handed down a penalty. Since Heikki rejoined w/o losing any places i think its fair and square but just another cheeky racing incident. I don't know whether Lewis penalty is justified or not, but anyways he seemed to enjoy racing by overtaking other cars on the track w/o any concern of track position. His moves on Nico, Glock, twice on Fernando ... were pretty good.

Nelsinho finally comes into the big league ! Finishing a race and more importantly finishing in points and just ahead of his team-mate. I wonder what's running in Flavio's mind right now !

Since Lewis & Heikki aren't carrying any pre-race penalty into Britain, i guess Silverstone should a better prospect. I am confident that Mclaren can come back very strong in Silverstone. Heikki Kovalainen was simply amazing ! Handed with a 5 place penalty and still manages a 4th with almost sticking his nose on to the podium. I wonder where he is gonna take his first gp win ? Probably Hungary or Belgium ?

Piquet is still only 17th = in the championship though, but it is a welcome confidence boost, especially beating Alonso (relatively) fair and square
