Hamilton should get a 1/10 rating today.

Like a headless chicken. Overtaking 5 people and spinning 5 times.

World champion eh? He can´t lick Senna´s boots!


Once again today the weakness of the current field was exploited. Vettel winning this race and Webber second shows just, that no all time great is in this field. No Senna, no Schumi, no Mansell, no Prost, no Lauda not even a Mika Häkkinen.

Alonso is one of the top 20 of all time yeah, but since he rejoined Renault he´s surprisingly weak in the rain.

And the rest...well Vettel is really good but far far far away from beeing a Schumi.

Ayrton or Michael would have done a Donington 93 - Barcelona 96 performance today.


I miss the 90´s ! :(

Like I said, it's his own opinion, but I can't correct you that it's biased. :lol:

It all comes down to what we like to see. Personally I don't see anything fun with it if one driver wins every race by one minute. I like competition and racing that this season has gave us exactly that. There are always drivers who are better than the others. It's hard to compare to the past drivers when they're not driving anymore. The cars are a lot different too so it's not so easy to say how good someone could have been.

I still think that Vettel is currently the rain master. He's done well in wet conditions, no matter if he's had a good car (today) or a worse one (Monza 2008, Fuji 2007). In Fuji he could have won too but lost it because of Hamilton's braking maneuvers.

There's been brilliant wet performances from Raikkonen, Alonso and Hamilton in the past years but they don't seem to do so well with bad cars. Kovalainen's been notably consistent too. A very good drive in Fuji 2007, technical failure hindered him in Monaco last year but today again a faultless race for him.

That look like engine or drive shaft or Electrical failure.

Sounds to me like a driver mistake.

Hamilton was infront of Sutil and at that time Heidfield was behind Sutil and Glock behind them. But when Hamilton made a mistake he slotted in behnd Sutil..

Buemi was really very strong ...without those few unfortunate incidents i think may be Podium was possible. He has so far totally out class ..performed his teammate. Impressed :D

Kubica + KERS = HILARIOUS :rofl:

LOL best read of the day ^^^^ hamilton spins 5 times deserves 1 point, get real he spun however many times pushing it to the limit yet he still finished in 6th i expect 5th was the best outcome possible for him but yes he deserves 1 point your right, cheap shots out of the way why dont you comment on your favoured team and drivers performance of the race, how much excitement did they bring to the table.... nothing.

fantastic drive by vettel/webber and the rest of the field today a shame for sutil thought he was gonna be rewarded for effort and for the team, anything confirmed about the problem with massa car.

i dont know anything about buemi career but he does seem like he definatly deserves that seat he doing great so far, i reckon kubica just wants to forget about this race.
