Glock then struggles for pace on a wet track and can't stop Hamilton passing. If anything I would have blamed Kubica unlapping himself which led to Vettel passing Lewis



Kubica was a bit cheeky during the race. When hamilton lapped him, he remained very very close, he overtook Fisi because the latter obeyed a blue flag which was shown to fisi because of hamilton, and he went in hamilton's way just before Vettel passed.

I expected he was more educated.


Kubica was more like a baby lost in the park .. He first couldn't accept Nick being ahead of him .. Later on he was in a virtual race imagining that he is racing Hamilton !

I know!

I felt bad for Massa, someone must have told him he'd won. :(
Seems like a decent bloke, come and work for McLaren pleeease! :p
:thumbsup:

It'd be okay if it rained like that before!

Yey! No more breaks now. On the BBC now!!! :)

Lewis Hamilton:

"It's been such a long journey, with a lot of support from people back home, my team did a fantastic job all year and all the sacrifices we made. I'm so thrilled to do this for everyone.

"I was able to stay ahead of Vettel and then it started to drizzle. I didn't want to take any risks, and he got past me. I was told that I had to get in front of him and I couldn't believe it and at the last corner I managed to get past Glock."

I just saw the video (cause i record every race). If nobody else puts it online, then I will.

It was DRY in the last corner. Glock did not go wide. Glock did not slide. Glock did slow down. There was no spray. No wet asphalt. if anything Glock had the traction advantage.

Worthy champion ? Hamilton. sure. Helped ? Yes. gifted the championship. For sure. All I have left to say. Go watch the last few seconds of the race again.

Well, i have to say i'm dissapointed... unfortunately this championship wasn't won by Hamilton it was lost by Ferrari.

The race itself was pretty fun to watch... Vettel RULES!!!
The kid was awesome, as was Massa. Both of them drove a fantastic race.

Congrats to Alonso too, outpaced Kimi who was driving a much faster car.

But all i can say to Glock is - you're not welcome in this country anymore :D And if i see him anywhere i'll grab that little midget by the throat and hang him by the b***s :D :D

hey SF, haven't heard from you for a while. Yeah, Massa was supreme, Hamilton nowhere, but the 1 point gap again sums up a great season. The last lap/last corner move sums up the whole season, so unpredictable - so close, shame the rules are changing next year.

So funny, Ted Kravitz (3 laps left) says: "I'm not meant to be here, I am in the pits illegally, but who cares, its our last race"

Go watch Spa and Japan, where Massa hit Lewis and was gifted a point by the stewards after Bourdais-gate, ok? :roll::
