So, F*** you Brazilian Crowd :p

What???Don't offend the brazilian crowd, please.


I think its acceptable for Brazilian crowd to Boo at Lewis. They just saw their man, who has done no mistake all through the race went on to lose. It might be hard to accept the truth at this instant. But they will settle down soon..

mclaren got raped mate...not sure what race you saw...but neither driver drove anything but a solid race. But otherwise unimpressive.

I demand the video footage from Glock's and Lewis car. I don't quite believe in such last corner dramas.


So what if Glock helped ? It doesn't matter ... Glock was falling off from pace. So he had let both Vettel & Lewis through ..



Last laps of Trulli and Glock (Both on dry tires) were 1:44 or something like that...

Lets clear this up: Timo Glock did not pit for wets. Hamilton was passed by Vettel. Massa crosses the line for p1 and the Ferrari team believe hes champion. 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

Did you see the look on Luis Massa's face when they found out Lewis was champion?

Watch Glock exiting the last turn and he lost about 6 seconds on one straight to Lewis

What an absolute disgrace!

Glock purposely slowed down and lost 18 seconds to let lewis through. What a disgrace. He does not deserve the world championship, and toyota should be banned from F1. Its one thing if its a team mate, but that, is completely wrong.

Lewis isnt a champion. He was gifted it. Not only that, but he hasnt got the abilities, knowledge, attitude and personality to be a champion.

Utter disgrace.

My heart soley goes out to felipe. That man is the true world champion. He didnt need to take his closest rival out in the pit lane, nor did he need another team to slow down 18 seconds, and he didnt cut chicanes to gain advantages either.

MAKES ME SICK

*lets see how he goes against fernie next year; He'll run home and cry to daddy*

I was for Lewis Hamilton but I feel so sorry for Massa. No one didn't deserve that end of a season. I was so angry when Vettel passes Hamilton but when I saw Glock, it was the miracle ( pure pure pure luck ) for Lewis... Massa was world champion when he passed the line but Glock.... It's an exceptionnal end for that season!! But, to be honest, Hamilton deserved the title....... until that race.... Hamilton will be the most hated driver!

David Coulthard : What a sad end for his brillant career....

Timo Glock will need lots of security getting out of that place.

''I have no words at the minute. We've done such a good job this weekend and missed the drivers' championship by just a point, in the last corner.

"That's life, we get on with it. We're current world champions, we're 2008 constructors' champions and the team has worked so well. It's something that we deserve. So, I'm very happy for that"

There is no conspiracy in this ..

Moreover many drivers openly supported Massa for win & Alonso went to the extent of stating that he would help Massa win the title. No one came out with any such messages for Lewis. If Glock has helped the team then its fine ...

I would be more than happy to have Timo Glock in Mclaren Mercedes - 2010.

How did James Allen react? Did he die of heart attack?
