That's an incredible picture for the WDC at the moment. Schumacher had better get some results if he wants to be a contender. He's really been shown up by Rosberg.


now i see standings and must say ftw massa leading???..., he has done nothing in those 3 races and leading championship... the one who should be on top is alonso or vettel... but im sure that will change

EDIT - i wonder how it would look if old points system still there

Well, in Bahrain he was second, in Australia he was third and now seventh, well, eh, he has been that steadiest driver to this point of the season... :huh: :huh:
Hamilton drived nice race but then got stuck behind Sutil, too bad, he would have catched Kubica and maybe battled for fourth place with him without Sutil. Red Bull drived nice race and taked steady one-two, nice race from Rosberg as well, though was somehow invisible, but still he beat Schumacher (again).
New teams: Nice to see Virgin Racings first race where their driver actually came to finnish.
HRT got both cars to finnish and beat both Lotuses. :80:
Lotus got unfortunatelly again some hydraulics problems and Kovalainen got clutch fault and some other problems, but still they got some valuable and free test miles though...

Eh, well. Long time to post something here, though, I should change my username, because I am not anymore Ferrari fan. :n
Fun, because I used to hate McLaren and Hamilton, but now I just don't and I have been cheering for them. :fear:

I think Trulli had some problems near the end of the race, didn't he? Some information about that?

Yes, that could be good, at least it doesn't have any "link" to any team... :n :thumbsup:

Problems with tyres? Our commentators said, that Gasgoyne has updated in his twitter, that also Jarno is having some problems with hydraulics of his car... Don't know if it is true or false, but all of new teams have long way to go still. :confused:

I think Ferrari have engine issues - Alonso used one before Bahrain and changed it, now he blew one today

Well. True, but still he had some problems with changing gears down, if you didn't hear it. It sounded very awful when he changed down and it was quit slow to change those gears down, when he change up, there wasn't any problems....

Alonso I think got the same problem than Hakkinen had in Spain in 2001. We heared before the terminal failure a weird sound when Alonso was downshifting, like Hakkinen. Then sparks fly off the Ferrari, like Hakkinen, then boum!!
