Certainly it wasn't kimi's fault... but please... not stopping to see if the child is ok is just the behaviour of a bastard :<>: ... I think we all stop if a child fall near us... Is he too important to care for people??

Sorry, but if there is something I really hate is not care about children...

Certainly historically Driver title has more value in motor sports.

btw ..Not sure ... ESPN Star Sports coverage showed Ron Dennis engaged button in pit lane ..and the next moment Heikki moved aside.

Massa is an imbecile, Lewis showed them how to drive, McLaren team uses team orders - which is forbbiden.

I think in normal circumstances when both pushing like crazy, Heikki is three-tenths slower. Then if he doesn't get his setup right, it's slower even than that. I think it would be fair to say that the team concentrates the majority of its efforts on Lewis, like last year.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

^^^ only difference this year its done silently and with cooperative Heikki :P
I don't expect Ron Dennis to make equality statement ever again.You simply can't fool your supporter every year :p :lol:

TwistedArmco your right.
when lewis is CLEARLY the quicker driver(like in silverstone), the team should favour him, as he will have a better chance of winning and/or challenging the drivers ahead of him. pretty much the same thing every other race team will do. quicker driver is always favoured. if heikki cant get his pace the same as lewis, mclaren wont focus on him winning. they will try get him as high as HE can in the points. and let lewis go for it all.

i cant wait for kimi to punch a photographer in the face, just so i can say:

Hamilton, really was not faster as many of you said. 1st, He didn't do faster lap, was Heidfield. 2nd, a lot of driver can drive faster because he was behind other (for example, Alonso was behind Trulli, Kimi, Vettel and Webber, but never can push to get a good lap; kimi has the same problem; Massa is special)

Hamilton second pit stop was on lap 51, and he overtake kovalainen on lap 52. Kovalinen lap 52, was 2 second slower than before. So Kovalainen had to stop for two second, to let Hamilton pass him

Despite all of that information..........

Statistics can prove anything.

Out of the last 7 races, Kimi has had the fastest lap 6 times.

How many of those races has he won?
