Post by Arrows_F1 » 03 Nov 2008, 14:36

@iceman 1: please make this post to an announcement (or a sticky) thread. Many thanks :wave: :D

F1 RACE OF THE YEAR AWARD 2008
- I will add a special picture soon, and of course I'm searching for a virtual trophy :D

As phil1993 is making a voting for the MAN OF THE YEAR 2008, I decided to make a voting, too. I want to know from you, which race was the best one of 2008.
It works this way: Below you see all 18 races of this season, with some statistical data and the podium of 2008. You can give every race a rating between 1 (bad race) and 10 (wonderful race). Please send me your ratings for the races via PM. I'll count the points and the race with most points wins the award.
Voting schould look like this: A - 5/10 points, B - 2/10, C 6/10.... and so on.

As Massa gets in for his first pit stop, his pit don't crew lift up the fuel hose early enough, so he goes away with it and has to wait at the end of the pit straight for his crew. The other mechanics aren't allowed to put the fuel hose off. He doesn't score any point. Alonso takes first victory for Renault since Japan 2006. Rosbergs takes another podium for Renault.

- A thrilling race to the last corner. For most of the race, Hamilton is the champion, but some rain in the end, seems to destroy his chances as he falls back behind Vettel to 6th place (Massa leads most of the race). But then in the laste corner before the finish in the last lap, Hamilton overtakes Glock for 5th to become the youngest ever world champion.

you made a mistake in your description of the Singapore GP

Massa makes a fatal mistake at the pit stop by destroying the fuel rig



It was the pit crew´s mistake, proven 1000 times.
