Kimi had deserved the race but lottery did the talking. Lewis was much faster in the last stint but I'm not sure whether he could overtake Kimi. Poor Kimi, 23 points behind now. Since he has still mathematical chances, I wonder Ferrari will force him to help Felipe.


Ferrari will get behind Massa no question - especially as the last race of the season is Massa's home race

Its a shame for Bourdais - he was 3rd halfway through the lap but got put down to 7th. he deserved more than that.

Hamilton's view
Quote:
Hamilton first overtook Raikkonen when he jumped the Bus Stop chicane after the duo made contact. The Briton let the Finn pass, but overtook him again at the next corner.

Hamilton said Raikkonen had not been fair in their fight.

"He pushed me wide," added Hamilton, whose incident is under investigation. "I was a little bit ahead and on the outside of Turn 1, he could have been fair.

"I had no room so he basically pushed me where I would be on kerb and crash or use the exit route. I understood I had to let him past so I let him past.

"He was ducking and diving and I did the same and got inside. He hit me at the apex of the corner but I was gone from there."

I very nearly pissed myself laughing when Raikkonen spun the first time, the 2nd and the 3rd when he got intimate with the wall. Incredible.

Last few lap reactions: :pray: :) :( :) :( :) Flag:##

"It was an experience and a half, I could see Kimi ahead and after the second pit stop he was so far ahead and I was wondering how he got such a gap, but I got stuck in traffic. I was pushing hard and he was responding and hoping he would catch traffic, it was just mix and match. I was just praying for it to rain because I knew how to deal with it. So the heavens opened a bit and I saw Kimi back off a lot, brake a lot earlier than he did in turn eight and then I knew the fight was on. I was going into turn 12 and going reasonably wide, but I think it was Rosberg there and I almost hit him, I think Kimi almost did too. Then Kimi spun and I got back past, it was great."


Kimmi might have pushed him too wide but he got extra power by cutting the turns

Why don't the stewards keep their big noses out of it? No one was being unfair, Hamilton had no choice but to cut through the grass to avoid a collision. He gave the place back to Kimi and won it back fairly.

He hadn't been third in the first place if he hadn't stayed out on slicks while Alonso & co pitted for inters. Hence he was sloooooooow and got overtaken. I'm not sorry for him, he made that choice and it didn't pay off - it wasn't bad luck or anything.

I think Kimi got a big understeer in the bus stop chicane, when the accident happened, that's because of the weather which affecting the car's handling. So Kimi didn't suppose to force Hamilton wide

They just can't punish him, he was in front, and he was pushed off the track by Raikkonen, he even gave the 1st spot back!!! Where do you wanna punish him for????
