Well we can discuss if the penalty to Hamilton was right or not, but there is something that nobody can deny, the manoeuvre in the first corner was totally unnecessary especially for a driver who is figthing for the tittle.

1)Best Driver- Alonso, even though I'm not his biggest fan he did a great job and there is no denying that
2)Best Team-Renault, both Alonso and Piquet did a good job.
3)Best Overtake- Kimi on Kubica, I was waiting because I knew it would happen eventually, but thankfully Kubica got it back
4)Best moment- would be the start
5)Worst driver- Hamilton
Worst Team-McLaren
6)Best Rookie-Piquet
7)Biggest Surprise- Hamilton's slow getaway at the beginning and almost hitting Hekki
8)General Comment- Overall the race was a good one, the fact that i had someone to discuss the race while it happen made it better, oh and afterwards the press asking questions to both Kubica and Kimi was funny. If the both of them were developers they would without a shadow of a doubt make the best racecar in the world, given how many problems their current cars have.
9)Your thoughts & Rating for TV coverage- 7/10, SpeedTV (USA) did a fairly good job of showing all the action, instead of just Alonso at the lead but I didn't see how Kubica got back in front of Kimi until I came on this site so thank you guys for that.

fair enough i di d not intend to upset or taint the community im still not sure why you think i am a hamilton extremist as i slated hamilton for his performance,i am a fan of the SPORT not the drivers or teams as they come and go i am an honest fan and i call it how i see it i will NOT defend or support hamilton/farrari/kimi/alonso/kubica/piquet/bmw or anyone if i think they have not raced fair and will slate/praise them when they deserve it and that goes for the FIA also.
agaain appolagise for my outburst, i just really feel for the underdogs who genuinly deserved the points for actually racing. (bordais/torro rosso)
