Pantano-FOOL (What was he doing?? You don't try and overtake with cold brakes and tyres on a wet piece of track with slick tyres on...)

Synopsis of GP2 race. DONT READ ON IF YOU DONT WANT TO KNOW THE RESULT

Wet start behind the safety car for 2 laps, when racing gets underway there is little action. Senna leads
Track dries, in the pits Senna is released Massa-Sutil style and is given a drive-thru
Iaconelli spins and Yamamoto runs into the gracel to avoid him
Valsechi has a huge crash at Stavelot. SC.
Pantano suddenly has a problem and slows down, many cars pass him
Senna takes his penalty, rejoining last.
Pantano works his way up to 8th.
Grosjean passes Parente brilliantly
Pantano tries to overtake one of the FMS cars at La Source, only to plough into the car infront of that, Di Grassi, taking them both out.
Grosjean wins ahead of Parente and Zuber. Filippi gets spun on the last lap

He is also being investigated for an incident with Nunes. He will start 21st at best tomorrow anyway!

It shows further how there is noone of F1 quality for next year. No-one is dominating like Rosberg/Hamilton/Glock have done in the past

i know - but that was dangerous - nothing happened here, and as Senna said: "I did nothing wrong, Di grassi did the same at silverstone and massa got no penalty. in the wet it takes longer to get traction"

Kimi has a habit to race with heavier car than Felipe. I truly hope, that he did that this time!
And about McLaren, they were fast at one-lap, but this track requires some power from the engines. So my guess is that Toro's and Ferrari's are going really fast tomorrow.
