Yeah, but for 52 laps he drove a great race. The way he chased down Button till the very end was exciting to watch. I loved it, shame such a great drive wasn't rewarded in the end.

Btw, how is spinning a 'rookie mistake'??

If you look it like that, you could say that at least 90% of the races are boring. It's very hard to find a race that has something going on every lap. That's why it's usually a couple of moments that kind of define whether the race is a classic or not. This race had some good fighting on track, unexpected crashes, different race strategies and race leaders so it seemed better than average to me.


Very well put. This sums up perfectly why I quite enjoy these races, and regard them as above average, Zack.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

1 - Best Driver: Hmmm....Sutil
2 - Best Team: Brawn GP
3 - Best Overtake: Alonso vs Vettel
4 - Best Moment: :) :) :) :) :) Final Lap...Lesmo -> Priceless! :)
5 - Worst Driver: Trulli, although Fisi was disappointing aswell and where was Buemi?
6 - Worst Team: Toyotaaaa!
7 - Best Rookie: Buemi
8 - Biggest Surprise: The Brawns winning with a one stopper, having great pace. Sutil beeing so strong, Fisi not scoring a point and well THAT moment: Seeing the ugly vodafone/chrome car in the wall, priceless!
I´m sorry for Lewis though I have to admit. But the McLaren Mercedes people got what they deserved, especially Haug!

9 - General Comment: Quite boring in the middle part. Great opening laps, great finish. Average race. Monza with identical engines sucks. Free engine development fgs! And ban the computer departments instead...would save even more money.

1 - Best Driver- rubens
2 - Best Team-Brawn
3 - Best Overtake- Prolly the overtakes Alonso made on Heikki, and the toyotas
4 - Best Moment- Well it was the best and worst. Hamilton crashing
5 - Worst Driver- Hamilton unfortunatly.
6 - Worst Team-Toyota, williams
7 - Best Rookie- grosjean
8 - Biggest Surprise- Louie ramilton XD

9 - General Comment

Nah seriously, even though i dont like lewis, I was gutted for him. But, he was too hot headed to think of the consequences. He's fighting one ferrari for third in constructors. if he's such a team player, being 12 points behind ferrari is better than being what.... 18 points behind now.

Whitmarsh's face said it ALL.

TBF a rookie wouldnt have made that mistake because they wouldnt be overdriving and pushing like that. At the end of the season, retrospective will se whether that cost mclaren 3rd place in constructors.

1 - Best Driver- Barichello
2 - Best Team-Brawn GP
3 - Best Overtake- Button on Kovi
4 - Best Moment- Barichello's victory
5 - Worst Driver- Rosberg
6 - Worst Team-Red Bull and Williams
7 - Best Rookie- Buemi
8 - Biggest Surprise- Hamilton crash
9 - General comment: a good strategy by Brawn Gp to win this race. Kimi is still on the podium and he could try to finish 3rd on driver's championship. Awful race by Red Bull, their chances of winning the championship seem slim. I hope Rubens will close the gap between him and Jenson at championship and win this, I think he deserve to win it more than Jenson.

He drove a great race.. a great weekend, and this thread is not just about the race, it says Grand Prix, so you should take the FP and Q into account as well, he scored pole, a brilliant result. A shame you (shämito) rate on 1 lap, on 1 result, without looking at his performance over the whole weekend...

I think results matters and even Kovalainen scored more points than him :thumbsup:
