I really really feel sorry for Shumacher - I can't stand the guy but his luck is unbelievable!

Is that Mercedes mechanic just pushing down on it to try and close it? :lol:

Schumacher putting a brave face on it, said the team were doing their 'upmost.' Yeah...

And another fantastic race! Seven races, seven different winners. Lots of passing and tire strategy gives us 3 great drivers on the podium.
I am really shocked at how badly Red Bull managed their tire strategy! That last lap of Vettel's proves they should hve pitted around the same time as Hamilton.
Well, on to Valencia and maybe it will be Massa's turn?

I'm amazed at how Alonso fell off the cliff there at the end. Good thing the race wasn't 80 laps for his sake!

I think it was Kovalainen who said, these tyres just stop working like running to the wall when they are finished. Couple of laps shorter race and Alonso would have definitely been on the podium. There was nothing he could do now.

It was a great race! indeed! what a season..we got different winners so far in each race..so the question is who's next?? i want lotus to win next, grosjean look promising too only if he able to pull himself out from first lap trouble :O

Hamilton much more matured now in this season. happy to see him won :)

Ha haa. Kimi said that "We had a chance to drive a little better race, but it didn't work out" - "At least I got some points, and it is always good - especially in such a season". New races come and Lotus got second best team points after McLaren. Romain is at the edge of winning if he keeps going like that :thumbsup:

I'm happy for Hamilton that it was him who won. Actually, I wanted him to win even over Alonso. But too bad I got partly my dream shattered since I'd loved ALonso to finish right behind him and see them both in the podium. Said that, I felt happy for Hamilton regardless.

Glad lewis got a win. You could tell Ferrari were just trying to cover Vettel. Finish 2nd, 10 point lead in the WDC over hamilton. No way was Alonso going to hold Hamilton in the DRS area.

Ferrari should've pitted after lewis and just kept 2nd place. No need to go for the win in Canada, consistency is key in this championship, other opportunities like Monza, Singapore, Suzuka, Valencia and Korea are the best opportunities to win. Canada, Spa, India for example are damage limitation tracks, get the podium, try and finish ahead of either Lewis or Vettel.

But never mind! Ferrari and Alonso have been flawless all season, nobody has ever been perfect in a whole season, everyone makes mistakes and this is Ferrari's first one. Win as a team, lose as a team! To be just 2 points behind lewis and 1 ahead of Vettel, being in 2nd place in the standings. This season is ON!!!!

Gutted for Button though. Mclaren need to change his chassis just for the sake of it, anything to help him. No way is Button worse than Massa. Somethings seriously wrong, be it with Button or the Car. He needs to get to the bottom of it. isn't this 3 non points finishes or 4?
