I didn't see the race as I don't have any access to a channel that broadcasts it, but it sounds like a typical race to the older days (about 10 years ago) where all the intrest was the strategy and pit stops.

I guess we can't expect every race to deliver thrill and excitment and plenty of battles and overtaking moves, can we? :roll::

Still, for me, I get all the excitment from the onboard footage :roll::

Weird that F1.com show the 15 points gained by McLaren today... :(

I thought it was a good race without incedent, not very entertaining but still good in the way hamilton kept ahead as i was beginning to think kimmi was going to take control once he got out of the pit for the final time and started close the gap a shame for massa i thought he would of done better as his team mate seemed to be able to manage with his car pretty well.

again BMW's are raising their game heidfeld was'nt as competitive as i thought he would of been but maybe thats because the ferrari seemed alot better today, can any of you think of an explanation why the ferrari of kimmi was so quick in the race but poor (by kimmi's standards) during Q3?

Kimi himself said after Q3 that the Ferrari is very good in race terms, even if it's not quick in the qualifying, and he said he believes that the same case will be in Hungary, and he turned up to be right...

Basically, when it's race conditions, there are some several other parameters taken into account.
One of them is the amount of tyre wear produced over the long run. Ofcourse that this is affected by the aerodynamic build of the car, so it differs from one constructor to another. I'm not sure that was the case here, doesn't look so, but anyway it was just an example, and I have no idea of the other parameters anyway :roll::

if the aero-packages were simplified, I don't think that the Hungarian Grand Prix would be more interesting. It's like Monaco, it's almost impossible to overtake your opponents, Raikkonen termed the race 'boring' and 'you finish where you started'

on Finnish TV they asked Kimi "About your former team and it's chief, whose name I'd rather not mention because those others are talking about him, too, umm how do you think the feeling was there after what's happened?" Then Kimi answered "Probably d a m n good"

Have you seen previous races in turkey? It's not that difficult to overtake there and the circuit is great.

Roll on to the next Gp, please.
