I want to see, Hamilton must do any mistake after his first turn mistake. If you see the race start again, you can see Hamilton is third (or second) behind Alonso. Next time Tv show them, then he was 5th, and Kovalainen 3th. Sure he had another mistake and loose from 3 to 5

Maybe onboard cam

EDITED, sorry was 7th, rear piquet!!!

I think ten minutes would all it would need for them to massively cock something up. It must be so tempting as a Mac fan to think that the FIA is a bunch of cowboys. I am fairly sure that although it could be done better and more justly, your average forum-fan knows a lot less than he claims to on the forum when faced with a big decision than those "suits" in the stewards' room.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

I think based on the performance I have seen this year, the only driver worthy of being champion would be ...Alonso. Raikkonen of course not, Massa not one bit, Hamilton still a rookie and not the sharpest knife under pressure. All he had to do is stay first or at least ahead of Massa after the first lap, yet he managed to lose several spots after the start. He seems to make mistakes only when he leasts needs one.

Penalties wise, Massa's was fair, Hamilton and Sebastian's no.

well, now you said this, remember hamilton front wing was damaged before crashing Alonso, because Hamilton crashed Alonso a lap before in same turn. Really nice, a driver crash two times another in same turn, and he don't have any penalties.


I mentioned this not to dig into Alonso vs Hamilton .. Just to highlight that our members are much better off in picking up the actual incidents with limited video captures ... You are a off the track in terms of the conversation and point which i am highlighting in my message ..

@ To all

I think what he mentioned abt Lewis 5pts was just his lead .. That's all .. Probably it hurt some poeple .. No offense guys but Phil's rating is his own opinion .. i don't think we should be too critical about it ..

@ shail69

Your driver rating card looks good.. i would suggest you to change the background color to white. You can simply write ur comments in black, driver points in red. For me more important is the message conveyed, but in your card i found it a little difficult to read them in blue. So try to make them more legible !!

I'd say Kubica would be a worthy champion. He has stayed out of trouble all year and been able to pick up important points when Massa and Lewis have failed to do so.

Balanced, huh? One Massa fan, one Hamilton die-hard, and two strong Hamilton leaners. Anyway, as we found out at Spa, Zack/Charlie has no control over the decisions. :)

Anyway, it's not that, and I know you're only saying this whole thing as a joke, but the guys who do it have to make tough decisions, often contraversial. They are not to be underestimated, and they do as well and as quick a job as they can. It's not really their fault, it's more the system's. The system needs overhaul.

They are the men for the job, not a selection of F1 fanatics from a forum.

well i tried to use the color of the car as the font color of the driver. And I had to choose dark blue for red blue and toro rosso.

umm, i think that is my typing skills rather than spelling because i tend to type faster and hence the characters gets mixed up.
Blu font was for red bull and toro rosso's color but I guess I will change them.

I appreciate that stewards have a difficult job.I know there's lots of pressure on them.But it doesn't excuse some of the abysmal stewarding decisions we've seen this season.We need a new system,and less penalties.Lets not have penalties for every collision,or every mistake by a driver.Let them race.In the current climate Villeneuve and Arnoux in Dijon 1979,Schumi and Wurz at Monaco 98 would be "Penalised for dangerous driving",and that's simply ridiculous.
