I'm back baby. Great race. Gutted Ham and But crashed on Lap 1. And I am never ever ever going by coach again. We got to the track at 10am each day and had to leave before the end of GP2 :( letter of complaint going tomorrow

I found this... the start of the race from many onboard cameras

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=up9h1g_-nd4[/youtube]

You can see how Kimi and Button took the outside. The difference is that Kimi won 3 places and Button lost 2... :p

In fact, it would have been strange if Kimi would have waited for them... Who waits anyway? :wave:

Barichello won a lot of places too when he cut the chicane of the accident, and I don't think he could have taken the chicane anyway. It looks pretty out of control there...

And nobody said anything about Sutil overtaking Badoer using the outside of the track because all knew that Badoer was just disturbing... :p

I cannot understand yet what happened to Alguersuari; why he lost control of the car and hit Lewis. I think nobody touched him, but maybe he took debries from the track that maybe blocked the wheels or something like that... :confused:

I don't get why they don't show the onboards of Grosjean and jaime, should clarify alot on that matter.

I think with button it was a rookie racing incident. Grosjean was half a car lenght next to button, and thought button saw him or something like that. For jaime I have no clue.

James Allen on Raikkonen going off roading:

"I mentioned that to him in the TV interview room before we went live and he rolled his eyes and grinned!"


Monza should suit FI so it's better for FISI to stay where he's now.

I saw someone on TV waving a huge red Lewis flag just before qualifying. Was that you?
