Team Lebanon , 4rth @ Sprint race and 15th in Feature race Qual let's hope we finish in pts for the first race ... as Daniel said on his Feature race Flying lap he was blocked by Netherlands team but he's hoping to be in top 10 grid in the Feature race start let's hope it goes well for the final race

Great hunt down by Ireland, although Switzerland win by 0.411, with Portugal 3rd. Malaysia 4th ahead of Mexico, France and Britain. I think half of the 20 strong field failed to reach the chequered flag

what a great race, the battle between south africa, new zealand, portugal, Italy and USA was just amazing to watch, and only one of those cars reached the flag, bad luck for netherlands, they would probably would have won if they hadn't broken down

AAawesome race :D

Brake Failure :zz: ... many team had same issue. Narain raced every well today both in sprint race and feature race ...Malaysia got passed because of brake issue. Next is Narains favorite track :O

I think people should watch A1GP and then talk about it :zz: ..some ppl just keep bashing A1GP without having hint of it :p

Great race for a season finale... sometimes I wish this was as popular as F1 as there is definetly the potential and racecraft in this series. Nothing beats good old fashioned overtaking - something F1 seeks but will not find as long as money drives where it goes 90% of the time.
