1-Best Driver
Massa. My hero this time. I've never seen him drive so well and with so much determination and skill as he did at the start of this GP and faultless for 67 laps. He had really deserved the win. :sad: Honoray mention to Glock as well. Superfast all weekend!

2-Best Team
Toyota. Not sure I like it, but they are more and more becoming a serious threat to the other "top-midfielders" (mainly Renault & Red Bull)

3-Best overtaking
Massa on Hamilton. Really brave, really brilliant. Flag:##

4-best Moment
The start. Massa overtaking Hamilton, Alonso overtaking Kimi. Who could ask for more? :p

5-worst driver
Kubica was surprisingly slow. Hamilton can't manage his tyres. Bourdais didn't make anyone happy. Pick your choce.

worst team
BMW. Where were they? :blink: Not a result fitting for the allegedly third best team in F1.

6-Best Rookie
Piquet did a very fine job for the second time in a row. I hope things has turned around for him for good now.

7-The most surprising moment
Best surprise: Massa overtaking Hamilton.
Worst surprise: Massa's engine going kaboom.
Most confusing surprise: Kimi overtaking Alonso in the pits. :huh:

really I want to said that Kova was very lucky, both cars before him had problem, and he didn't have to overtake anyone. As Piquet previous gp. He was second, yes, was very lucky with SC, but he was all race with a lot of fuel, so it's more difficult to drive, and easy to make a mistake.

Really I didn't say he don't deserve his first place, I only said, he was not the best driver. A lot of driver, done something better. :thumbsup:

Definitely its was appreciable drive from Glock but to say its was better than Felipe's is debatable.Glock was able to maintain his position bcoz thr was no challenge from BMW(Kubica).While in Felipe's case who infamous under pressure situation drove extremely flawless race.In the end, your free to have your own opinion. hehe :angel:

End Result was very much influenced by top 2 driver problems & off pace BMW :(.

Remember what I said:

I said there are a lot of "best driver". Glock had a very good weekend, remenber Q3. But also said Kimi, Massa, and Kovalainnen did a good race. Even Alonso did a good race, all laps with a Ferrari or Mercedes behind him and he defense his position.

I think Glock have a poor car, compared with Massa, and it is easy to win with a Ferrari, than get a second place with a Toyota. This is why a said Glock as best driver. Remember Massa start 3 (clean side), and was first (-2) when he broke engine. Glock start 5 (clean side too) and finish second (-3). And every opinion is debatable.

nah i wouldn't say that. valencia is a street circuit as monaco, maybe there are not the same conditions, but valencia is not a circuit like hungary.
in their seven seasons they only managed to get 7 points in monaco (compared to their 27 in hungary...)

Glock was there, keeping up with Kovalainen, because he was pacy. And he pi$$ed all over Trulli, who is having a good year, which suggests that Glock was genuinely outpacing his Toyota, not to mention his team-mate. Appreciable is a good word, and variable opinions are also good, but it is certainly not unreasonable to call Glock's Hungary drive the "best drive".

although people say that this circuit is not quite good, the race here can be exciting.
