Glad you enjoyed it Fergie, because it's certainly not biased. It portrays both Ferrari and McLaren's respective downfalls, and Massa's "granny driving" with equal vigour.

Yes you can... :roll::

Hamilton also had chance to take the chicane normally as you can see from videos, but he didn't want to lose the fight and cutted the chicane. -.-

I'm gonna throw up the race into my basin and it will be full of words of chicane, Hamilton and penalty.

Ok, I would recommend watching F1.com's very sarcastic, dark take on things at http://www.formula1.com/services/play_video.html..

It's highlights of the race, and then ususally at the end they show a happy garage full of mechanics, but with the pitwall cameras, they've made the story of the race very cleverly a Ferrari vs. McLaren rivalry thing with the select bits of film they put in. It's great.. Plus watch the end.. It's sardonically vicious.


haha, nice video TA. Really shows all the joy and the amazing nature of racing and then in the end you get the jamming of the monkeys.

f1.com race highlights are usually good.

Lewis loses his bottle

As if losing the Belgian Grand Prix win wasn’t enough, Lewis Hamilton now finds himself under the scrutiny of something far worse than the F1 stewards – the Belgian Health and Safety Board.

The BHSB is unhappy that in wet and slippery conditions on the podium, Hamilton dropped a half-full bottle of champagne to a team mechanic some 13 feet below him.

Apparently this is about as dangerous as things get in Belgium and the authorities are taking a very dim view of the incident.

Ferrari’s Felipe Massa was also seen dropping his bottle but was deemed not to have gained an advantage, so will not face punishment.

Reports indicate that the BHSB are pressing for a hefty fine, a 10-place grid demotion and another drive-through penalty for good measure for Hamilton at the next race in Monza.


(its a joke, okay)

my parting words for the incident:

there is absolutely no sportsman on this planet that did not get hugely irritated by what happened in Belgium. the only people that are content with the most perverted decision in F1 (and maybe sports history, if you are generous enough to consider F1 a sport) are victims of blind fanaticism.

Don't flare this whole thing up again. I was on the verge of bannings last time. No personal insults, no matter how small they may seem. He has an opinion, you have yours, try to disprove theirs with evidence.. Not petty insults. - TA

You can't not lose speed and gain momentum. In any situation. Its basic physics.

You can''t lose speed and gain momentum.

I think youve overstepped the mark there fergie, ive agreed with you about items privately but this is insulting a fellow member. sorry mate but i think youve gone too far


Correct - TA

It wasn't intended as flame bait (honest), but looking at my post now I could of just left that out and still made my point. :blush:
No evidence is needed to back up myself up as its (to me) basic knowledge which led to my insult in the first place. You can't lose momentum and gain momentum at the same time. I don't understand what is so hard about that to understand?

But is momentum the issue? Or is the issue ground covered? That is not 100% certain. Allow Tommi to have his opinion. Even if he denies solid fact, just tell him the error of his ways nicely. Don't call him "thick". - TA

Spot on Fergie... specifically Sir Isaac's Newton's Laws of Motion. (the guy who had an apple fall on his head)

if you read his 2nd law... you'd think he actually saw the belgian GP (he died in 1720's btw)

"The change of momentum of a body is proportional to the impulse impressed on the body, and happens along the straight line on which that impulse is impressed."

say that he didnt give enough space. fair enough that's a valid opinion! but him having had more momentum would mean that lewis hamilton well and truly defies physics.

anyway, Pat symonds disagrees with stewards as well.

so far its Trulli, Ferrari, FIA vs Lauda, Symonds, Stuck, Stewart, and Sir Isaac Newton

cause clearly, saying something ludicrous as "Hamilton kept his momentum to give him an advantage" means you're disagreeing with his laws of motion. and i have a hunch he wont like that (plus he'll give you tons of mathematical proofs on why he's right and you're not)

he must've been doing somersaults in his grave these past couple of days.

I assume my fix is what you meant?
