Cmon give Nelsinho a break ! He has been the architect who made this entire Singapore GP fantastic ! I think all the nuts and bolts were in place and race was going on until Nelson breaks the jinx. All the hell goes loose !

For this very reason i believe Nelson should stay with Renault ! If he can't win, he will atleast make way for others to win !

Just thinking, as KR retired at the end, and although only 14 drivers crossed the line - 15 are classified, so in the prediction competition does this count as 14 or 15 finishers?

Raikkonen should be fired. NOW.
Along with several Ferrari mechanics. No matter whether the hose stuck on the valve or not...the guy who gave Massa the green is to blame. Cause he should have been aware of the hose being stuck. And Ferrari has had similar problems this year.


Agreed .. Raikkonen has displayed pathetic race performance. Going 4 races without points won't look bad if it was unavoidable. But all the 4 races he messed up, he has been the reason for it. Similar kind of performance in Belgium & Singapore. He simply lost control in the last few laps i believe.

Is Raikkonen under pressure ? I don't think so ! He probably knows that he is out of contention for WDC and was looking to drive a race home to get some points. Lets see whether he can have an impact in Japan.

Massa's race performance is another example his dependence on the car and the starting position. As long as he was in the race lead, he managed to keep himself ahead of Lewis. After his pit stop debacle, situation become worse. Massa simply gave up his race .. He was driving around expecting another safety car or swing of fortune.

By the way, the track wasn't that bad after all. Of course overtaking was difficult, but it was possible so we saw some nice maneuvers and even the infamous Trulli train was dispatched. Definitely a better circuit than Valencia or Monaco. Still, I don't think that street tracks are the way to go.

Agreed .. Contrary to the opinions of many people, there was overtaking at all possible spots in the track .. It definitely isn't bad. But they should get rid of the high kerbs on Turn 10 or something which send Fisico & KR flying through the weekend.

This was an interesting race and yes it was all thanks to piquet. If not for him crashing his teammate would have never won. Also did anyone else see that ferrari went to using the lollipop after the light/valve malfunction.
It wasn't massa's fault. Just a bit of bad luck.

Does any one know what happen to rubens?

Rubens had some sort of power failure - technical rather than driver related anyway

Hey sanredrose Nice to see you again here :p

Hamilton did a Good Race , Kovalainen was a disgrace to McLaren. Imagine lapping 1.5 seconds slower than your teammate in clean air with a similar fuel load and on the same tyres.
