What a silly mistake from Massa!! Albers style!! And Albers got punnished real harder, but hey, he was not driving in a Ferrari...
And the wallman proved his new nickname again :p Ferrari: 0 points!! :thumbsup:



silly mistake from massa when ????

after he saw green light in pits ??? thats a pit crew mistake, after that he push very hard to get something

in the other hand hamilton coundnt overtake dc over 20 laps with a 2 secs fast car what a driver!!!!

hamilton just did a regular race wasnt the fastest driver or something... thats good for his chances to get championship


It was more Ferrari's fault than Massa.

Don't forget that DC runs in Formula 1 during 14 years now, he knows defending his position! But extreme bad luck for Massa! Two times he could win and take the advantage on Hamilton, two times his car or his team failed ( Hungary and Singapore ).......

although he is classified he did not finish the race. Usually, those drivers who finish 6 laps from the end are classified.

This year he is not doing it .. He is a much better driver in the second half of the season than the first half .. So i m hoping that Hamilton wins Chinese GP !!


last year there were other things apart from racing. The whole Mclaren saga had a say in the final result, I'm sure of it.

Not sure where you got that info but Singapore ain't no home of ING.

My girlfriend confirmed Singapore is just the Asia-Pacific headquarters NOT the home of ING. The home is in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Literally a world away. They have a fancy building, by the Schipol airport.

Alonso is pretty entertaining when he wins. he got all these silly dances and hand gestures. And speaking of the trophy - pretty neat.

Ferrari should really think about not using that traffic light again... The penalty Massa had was for the same problem as in Valencia... that system do not see if there is car coming... And today it could have been quite worst....

Anyway, for me was a good race, especially after the SC... More points for Hamilton... More points for McLaren... quite more overtaking and action than valencia... and Ferrari that doesn't need enemies on the track to loose points....

Good for Alonso and Rosberg.. they deserve results like those ones more often...

I think it's lap 29 when he comes to the pit for the last time, Kubica overtook him 1 lap before and Massa couldn't follow him!

No mate, he meant the spin but don't even try to convince him. He's not that kind of an objective person to comment on races. It's just Hamilton-mania, nothing more.

Massa did everything perfect in this weekend. It's a shame he couldn't win it. I'm really sorry for him. He lost two wins including Hungary, which would cost him the WDC.

Nice post Ali :)

iirc rule is if driver completes 90%(?) of the race then he is classified.

Drivers who complete 90% of the race distance are classified as finishers.
