Yeah, people who say that, with all respect(!!), haven't got a good memory. What happened at Monza?? Hamilton/Glock battle, after that Glock said, he would try to push off Hamilton, when he has got the oppurtunity. They can't handle HAMILTON is the CHAMP!!!

Oh well, now that the dust has settled a bit, congrats to Hamilton and his fans! :D

I thought it would be a boring race but the rain at the end made it one of the most exciting races ever. I don't know if the championship has ever been concluded with a overtake at the last corner of the season.

Since Schumi left, we've now had 2 seasons where the championship has been decided at the last race by one point. This is exactly what F1 needs and I really hope we'll have more seasons like this in the future. I'm pretty sure that last lap will be one of the most memorable ones ever.

Anyway, driver of the day is definitely Vettel. :thumbsup: That guy is just spectacular in wet conditions and really spiced things up at the end. Let's hope that Glock can get safely out of Brazil for his sake. :p

I feel like I'm dead. My heart rate has gone down to a miniscule level and my chest and head feel leaden. This is the downside of sport..
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

Sad to see DC go out in the first lap. All the new livery and chances to see him in solid points finish vanished when the Williams duo decided to give DC an on-track FAREWELL PARTY !!


Solid points finish? Solid thwack to the wall more like. Face it, DC was never going to do anything. "Williams Duo"?? What as if Nakajima was at fault for that? He wasn't at all at fault.


+1

I accept that DC was more in line for a solid whack .. Nakajima - fautless. Nico tapped DC and Nakajima was at the wrong place & collected DC.

I repeat what I said some races ago.. DC's car has a magnet... if he doesn't crash someone, someone crashes him.... :laugh1: Flag:##

It couldn't be worse than that... bye bye after the first corner...

Trulli had dry tyres and did the same lap time as Glock.Kubica was a lap down,he may have finished when the conditions still ween't bad.

My God! That was incredible! Massa, thank you for being a solid rivalm Lewis, thank you for this victory! :1st:
You can loose championship by an occasion (what Hamilton nearly managed to do today), but you'll never win it by an occasion.
God, I'm so happy! All the McLaren fans here! Cheers, guys! We definetely have somthing to celebrate! Eeehooo!

Yeah true, somebody just said that and I believed him.

Still, very weird last corner from Glock and he just let Hamilton pass. Hamilton lost the championship with losing fifth to Vettel but then... :tired:

If Hamilton = 6th, both on 97pts, Massa wins on countback of wins. Massa given Hamiltons Spa victory, so it all works out in the end. :D

Hats off to Massa though, he was let down by Ferrari, but you win and lose as a team and McLaren have done a lot of losing recently - 2001,2002,2004,2006- so good for them.

Most of them won't be older that 16, which is probably the direction in which F1 is heading in the near future :D lol

A shame really.


We have put up FA fanatics, Ferrari fanatics, Anti-Mclaren fanatics for 9 years ... So time to re-think your strategy !! :shhh:


and simply ignore Lewis fanatics & Mclaren fanaticism :laugh1:

btw racialism point was out of point :p
