Very good point.

To celebrate for the misfortune of your rival (lewis spinning) is completely pathetic.
To celebrate for the misfortune of your rival after your own driver rammed him is MENTAL IMPAIRMENT. Period.

Alonso braked too late in first corner, Kubica braked too late in first corner, Raikkonen braked too late n first corner, Hamilton braked too late in first corner, only Hamilton got a penalty. Lovely FIA, wondering how much you get paid by Ferrari? ''hmm''

It's really disturbing waiting for the official results not after race is finished but after investigation is finished!


Yeah, why not have a video referee or something? Does it in rugby in like 2 minutes. Now imagine, if there was like a fairly simple constitution for a comitee reviewing tapes, how decisions could be made in like 2-5 minutes. That is my went-to-bed-at-2-woke-up-at-5 view.. :tired:

No hangover Phil, no. :) In fairness, I've only had a hangover for about a third of the days I've been here.. :roll::
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

I shouldn't say this ... but Lewis fans are utterly biased and can keep swearing at Massa :@:2

yeah, a late decision about Rosberg, even though it was inevitable, in Singapore cost LH 2nd.

But Ham fans, before Singapore he had a 1 pt lead with 40 available, now he has 6pts with 20 available. Not bad, eh? :O

Doesn't look bad .. But he actually has proved that he is volatile at the end of the season !

absoutely mate. I don't even care about the Ferrari/Mac stuff, all I care about is how Alonso won it on merit. Quality. If there was a tired but joyous emoticon, I would use it.. :cool:

I appreciate your anger right now, and I'm not trying to make you angrier, but IMHO, there was a massive difference between what Hamilton and the rest did. Hamilton came from a car length behind Kimi and ended up a car length ahead, pushing Kimi wide.

And then the fact that Ferrari was celebrating that..


A good point indeed. I just thought - batards! To celebrate your (from a Ferrari point of view) guy knocking another guy off is just not on. They are just as bad as fanboys.

Probably FIA didn't want to anger the Ferrari boys .. So they said ok lets give both Lewis & Massa a drive through !!
