Never think of that .. Because the uploader team at f1zone are gearing to release a lot of full seasons over the next 5 months. I think that will keep the forum busy and everyone here to watch some historical races & relive them ...

Yawn, yawn, yawn. It's kind of a good thing to be so bored by an ok race - it means the standard of races this year has been that good. But it was stilll boring. And I watched it with three Hamilton fans.. :roll::

Hamilton's such pace remembered me Schumacher 2004. In one week time, what might have changed so dramatically? Quite interesting. Lewis seems to get a boost from those criticisim and disliking towards him. He reacted very very solidly. I'm very happy for him for at least he's now a relieved guy.

No testing though before Brazil so we can expect the same pace from Lewis. I don't think he will make the same mistakes he did in last year. It's over to me. Lewis will clinch it in Brazil. I hope title won't be decided by some silly technical issues or safety car periods.

Hamilton was saving his engine because he has to use it in Brazil. he can't use his free engine change in the final race of the season

Just FYI, if somebody's complaining about Ferrari's strategy, McLaren's been doing the same with Kovalainen in a couple of races and in fuel strategies the whole year so... :roll:: At least Ferrari gave both of their drivers the chance to fight for the championship in the first half of the season.



But Kovalainen was already far from Lewis after a few races...

And about Massa's overtaking, I don't see a problem. I'm sure the rule is about avoiding dirty movements or actions more than try to win the championship in a fair way.


I don't see any problem too. And it's normal that Raikkonen let Massa take the 2nd place. We often see that, not only with Ferrari ( McLaren at Spa 2005 for example, or Renault at Indianapolis 2006 ). It's not like Austria 2002.

It's a good race, a bit boring at the end of the race. Great drive by Hamilton, nobody could catch him! Just need to keep his head at Interlagos! ( Massa will be unbeatable )

Kovy IS very unlucky!! Put a finn in a McLaren Mercedes and there will be a lot of problems! Ask Kimi and Mika!

Renault guaranteed 4th place in the championship so did Toyoto in 5th. Kubica's WDC chance is now gone.

50km shakedown is allowed .. Ferrari loves it :)

For Massa to win WDC .. Alonso should be near/front of Hamilton :p

Three guys opted for 1 stop strategy - Glock(2points), Dc & Fisi.
Force India is on unreliability record :@:2

Ferrari has almost won WCC Flag:##

Come on, it's roughly 10~15 laps. Will it be enough?

Yes, I think so. Ferrari made it as guarantee as Lewis did his.
