Nope he was barely moving last 2 laps :O

I think Massa did a good job by slowing down,by doing that he have got a race win.I mean if race was not 44 laps and more than 44 laps then Hamilton would have got a penalty in the race itself and massa would have taken the lead

And if the finish line would be more further then where it is then Nick would have overtaken him.Did any one observe that as Nick very fast on the last lap but time was less so missed massa.I wish he had overtaken Massa and gain his first maiden victory.

well to me massa matured a lot throughout the season. wouldn't have expected him to do that at all.

yeah, Nick deserves a win- this season he has been 2nd what? Aus, Can, GB, Spa. 4 times just this season alone.

and we have nearly 1500 posts in this topic. I think we'll make it to this amount.

Maybe Nick can win the final race in Brasil. That would be one of those stories, which just happen in the sports...

Nick was good enough to change his tyres in the right time. Alonso also changed them, but was a lap late. Should they changed them together, I think Alonso would have been on the podium instead.

an ideal world is Nick winning in, say, Japan. Hamilton clinching the title before Brazil so there can be a balls-out fight for the last race, with Massa winning his home race, Alonso and Hamilton on the podium :p and some surprising points scorers.

one more thing to discuss about. Anyone seen the first lap incident between kimi and massa. it looked as if kimi wanted massa to crash so he would be in higher points than massa.Thats my opinion anyways.
