So your the 2nd to congratulate him on this forum, good for you :thumbsup: but I still think it's weak of other members of this forum, last year i was the first to congratulate Kimi on his achievement. And now a lot of Ferrari 'fans' are saying: "lewis isn't a champion" "Glock gave it to Hamilton" and quotes like that... It's so weak


I congratulated Lewis, you don't see this? :blink:

:thumbsup:

I can do what I want. Sportsmanship applies to sportsmen. What you're doing is conventionally called "rubbing it in". Leave me be.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

Lewis Hamilton: "It's been such a long journey, but I've always had the support of my family, the team, our partners and the fans." Feels like he is talking to me :)

What does Massa when he has become the World Champion?

He turns off his Playstation :p

Sorry, but I had this in mind, if Hamilton would be crowned WC :p

Timo Glock said he was not aware that he was influencing the championship over the final laps of the Brazilian Grand Prix.

The Toyota driver was running in fifth place, ahead of Lewis Hamilton, who needed that position in order to secure the title, ahead of the final lap.

Glock had decided not to pit when the rain began to fall at Interlagos, a decision that put him ahead of Hamilton.

The German, however, was on dry weather tyres and was unable to keep Hamilton at bay, the Briton going on to pass him at the final corner to win the title.

Glock admitted he had no idea he was in a position to decide the championship.

"No, I was concentrating on my race. I didn't know that I was the magic rule in the championship and in the end, I didn't look for that," Glock told reporters after the race.

"I just tried to do my best, and in the end it was a poker game. We stayed out on dry tyres and for the last lap it was just too much rain for us. We were not unlucky but the poker game did not turn out for us."

He added: "I really don't know where Lewis overtook me because four cars past me left and right, left and right. I was just concentrating to keep the car on the track. That was the only way.

"To handover and help Lewis or help Felipe, definitely not. In a race situation like this, you can never plan before and definitely there were no thoughts about that.

"When you see the laptime, the lap before I did a 1m28, and on that last lap I did a 1m48. It was just not driveable anymore."

The Toyota driver said he felt sorry for Felipe Massa, but he was sure the Brazilian understands his position.

"I think he is the guy who understands quite well that I could not do anything different to that what I did at the end of the last lap. I am sorry for him, but in the end the last race is definitely the decider of the championship.

"But the main point is the 17 races before, and there were more races where Felipe was a bit unlucky and didn't score the points because of technical problems. But in the end, to lose a championship on the last lap is hard - but I tried my best and I cannot change it."
