ferrari really disappointed, wtf strategies they using in this race........
although im ferrari's fan, i would like to say they are really really bad.

congratulation to hamilton, heidfeld & barichello, they have a performance today. alonso & kovalainen also have good performance today, especially last few laps, very exciting.

last, i think massa need to learn how to race in rainy day again.......
he spun too many times today.
i vote him to be worst driver today & hamilton is the best driver today.
raikkonen lost his performance today too, spun 3 or 4 times. (not remember how many time hehe).

now 3 driver with 38 pts followed by kubica 36 pts. very exciting now...
all almost same pts.

Pretty good by Kimi that he was 4th despite all the spins and tyre problems

theres your problem right there :lol:


I have the same opinion about him since he started F1... so nothing new because of this race :cool:

But i already said, i hate the strategies my favorite team is using the last 2 seasons... quite lame. Hopefully they'll get their act together...

And i can't believe i'm gonna say this, but... i wish there are not more wet races this year... because i'm sure they'll mess it up somehow.

Congrats to Mclaren...

At some point of the GP it looked like Ferrari packed up and left the drivers on the circuit!! WTF?! Horrible horrible horrible planning... :sad:
And I think Massa was trying to break the record of spins in a single GP... :huh:

Anyway, It was a good race in general...

I almost felt ashamed of being a Ferrari fan the way they handled the strategy today...

Cheers

Yes, wet races aren't really Ferrari's expertise right now. :p So far there's been a chance of rain almost at every race though.

When Ross Brawn (the Ferrari brain) left this was bound to happen. It will take time for Luca to become as good a strategist as Brawn but these mistakes all add to his learning process.

What a fantastic race!
Just a shame for Kubica spin... we would have a tighter fight for WDC!

This season's just crazy..

I guess so.McLaren used to usually make the wrong calls,but the last few seasons they've started calling these races correctly

This is turning out to be a better season than last! I'm just glad that there is no spy scandal or anything like that happening this year.

Although, wrt to the whole license fees and change of venue, why bring it up during a GP weekend? It helped lose some of the fun here...

Thoroughly enjoyable, action-packed afternoon - any F1 fan would agree no matter who won. I feel bad for Massa, either his car had issues that haven't been identified yet or he just wasn't on the ball. World champions need to be able to master all kinds of conditions after all! As some have already said on the previous pages, Ferrari need to sort themselves out after this which they're more than capable of doing.

What were some of you doing sitting at your computer adding updates during the race?! Wouldn't you rather make yourself comfortable and just sit back and enjoy it? Not havin' a go, I'm just a bit baffled!

Considering the head of the FIA was seen having sado-masochistic sex with 5 prostitutes with possible Nazi overtones earlier this season,that statement about the lack of scandals is,sadly,not totally correct

Well done to Lewis :cool:

Ferrari should told Raikkonen to pit when the rain is started to fell again
they were took a lot of time to think that strategy, they forced Raikkonen to do 10 laps in a worn tyre and in the horrible track condition, at the end that strategy didn't paid off

Poor strategy once again by Ferrari :<>:

I agree though that sort of stuff is getting in the way of a wonderful season.These scandals are detrimental to Formula 1.Today's race was brilliant,every race has had something good going for it
