Heikki is finished for the rest of the season.
Dennis said Hamilton doesn't need and doesn't want special support from his team mate.
Quote:
"The truth is that Lewis doesn't any extra help. He and Heikki are good mates but they're both highly competitive individuals and they take their own decisions."

"We have a long history of giving our drivers equal treatment and opportunity, and that isn't about to change," he added. "Not every armchair critic will agree with that policy but it's the way we go motor racing. And, to be frank, it's the way everyone goes motor racing these days."

I'll be polite (for once :p ) and only say that Ron Dennis ideas of "drivers equal treatment and opportunity" are NOT the same as mine...

it is because BMW ripped some points off ferrari and mclaren. Also Renault, toyota,red bull, honda were on the podium to take some points of ferrari and mclaren.

I dont think ferrari will ever have a problem between their drivers with kimi and massa. And I dont see them talking to each other often.

Quote:
What about Mark Webber ? His engine blew up in Germany, isn't he allowed to use a fresh one in Hungary then ?


I think he had a fuel leakage problem not an engine problem? He did couple of laps behind the saftey after even after smoke were coming after his car and he was able to drive his car into the pits.

I was hoping for some rain to make the race more interesting, but it looks that predictions have changed now and there will be no rain.

I will be in the last corner just before the finish line, hoping to see some action.

I think Mc laren have recovered some lost ground from the beginning of the season, and i tip hamilton as winner of this race.

Traditionally looking at this year, drivers have been strong at venues they were strong last year ! Hamilton in Canada, Massa in Bahrain & Turkey .. Kimi in France .. So going by that i would be counting on Lewis to be good at this place !

To be honest I think the steering wheel will be banned before everyone else copies it.Just because its legal now it don't mean some obscure ruling will ban it later on (See Renault's mass damper system in 2006,or McLaren's braking system in 1998). And anyway that just gets in the way of the racing.With such a close championship we don't need off-track controversy

hamilton last year was good in hungary.
kimi was quick and he set the fastest lap last year.
massa had that fuel problem (controversy to favour kimi:coulthard), so he was not able to deliver good performance.

Its anyone's game.

McLaren were fast in Jerez testing - Hungary GP setup- so they'll hopefully be strong !

Hamilton could score his third consecutive win in Hungary. But I think Ferrari will put pressure on Massa and Räikkönen. They need a victory. I hope that BMW Sauber will score another good result in Hungary. Maybe a podium for Heidfeld or Kubica
