Hmm, I am not too sure about that, we've all seen Kimi do this sort of thing before - I mean, being penalized then driving through the field for a podium, or a win as we saw in 2005 ..
It wasnt luck, I think it was because he could - If he was lucky he wouldve won
i agree. Kimi has consistently put up these kind of drives from the back of the grid. More dissapointing is Ferrari not starting on the right tyres and Kimi having a proper go at a win. I don't feel Hamilton was all that impressive here, furthermore I think he is entrenching himself politically at McClaren to wrap up this title. He learned that he has to play all sides of the ball in F1 by having Alonso as his primary opponent, in much the same way Alonso learned from Schumacher....
I think the stewards were ridiculous with some of their penalties. Kubica drive through penalty for absolutely nothing, I felt it was a blatant favoritism towards Hamilton (where was it that Turn 1 turned into a parking lot earlier this year and the stewards lifted Hamilton from a gravel trap back on track? Ridiculous).
I'd like to figure out what caused Alonso's crash. He's not the type of driver to make that mistake just going in.
TV coverage was horrible. Last lap battle between Kimi and Heikki wasn't even shown correctly, at least they got the Kubica-Massa duel in the end. Alonso crash had a horrible angle and was just kind of putted over by the commentators (at least here in America). SpeedTV coverage is horrible, this is my first time here at these forums so I'm trying to find the light!
