RUBBISH!! I think.. Hamilton was the master: Qualiying, Free Practice, and he was on a winning strategy, really rubbish I think. I just think that Bridgestone does more with Ferrari then with McLaren. And what about Canada and Australia, McLaren was faster there then anyone!! Those were hot GPs 2

That's why he killed his tyres then? And weakened the sidewalls by leaning on them so much? And that's why he couldn't make an impression on Massa after Massa did good, very good for a change.

No Hamilton was second best in fairly evenly matched cars? Second best doesn't = the master.

n.b. If Bridgestone did so much with Ferrari more than anyone else, the Ferrari would be good in all conditions. Come on, they're Japanese! - the Japanese don't do bias or unfairness in sport.

Reply to the Bridgestone article:

Well I don´t see Kimi getting 100% out of the package since Spain.
Massa is better in qualifying and at least equal in the races this year.
But it´s because of Kimi´s relatively weak performances after Spain.

Reply to TwistedArmco´s post:

I´m sure it´s somehow related to Hamilton´s driving style, because it wasn´t the first time he had a puncture.

I too am sure. Yes, Hamilton fanclub, it was bad luck to encounter a piece of debris, but when you push harder and steer more agressively, you wear the tyre sidewalls, one of which is where the puncture seemed to be in Hamilton's case..

Its already been confirmed that it was because he got a flatspot and weakened the tyre.

What record :blink: The rule that stipulated the same engine for consecutive two races was put in 2005. Ferrari's reliability record was back in 2000's. Begining from 2006 Japan, Ferrari's record was not that good even compared to that of McLaren, which has been very popular thanks to its infamous reliability past.

McLaren was so hopeless before that they couldn't even make the engine last through the practice sessions. That's why it's amusing that Mercedes-Benz is now the most reliable engine on the grid.


a bit of news....

McLaren's 2008 car is now benefiting from the superior performance of its Mercedes-Benz engine, according to the German magazine Auto Motor und Sport.

The report claims that recent chassis improvements, including the Honda and BMW Sauber-like nose wings that debuted in Hungary, are allowing the car to perform more efficiently through the air.

Rival teams believe Mercedes' V8 engine is producing about 25 horsepower more than any other 2.4 litre unit on the grid.

"If those numbers are right, then an advantage of 25 horsepower with the same air resistance brings a benefit of four-tenths (per lap)," BMW's technical chief Willy Rampf commented.

McLaren's MP4-23 has won the last three Grand Prix.
