It's strange, to see Webber so bad. After all issues with his team and teammate, I ask if they have same car.

Slower car win

So where was the phrase: "Lewis, Jenson is quicker than you, can you confirm that you understand this?"

Nowhere: No teamorders.

Do you actually dare to say that Ferrari did a fantastic job with those teamorders?

As said before, Ferrari stoped slower car to win faster. McLaren stoped faster car to win slower. It's quite different. If Alonso is first and slower than Massa, I think Alonso must stop for Massa.

No, no, no. Sorry, but in my opinion you are completely wrong! McLaren have NEVER asked Button to let Hamilton pass, and vice versa. Ferrari did that today. That's teamordering! If (!) Alonso was faster than there should have been a great fight between Alonso and Massa, we pay for that, we pay to see that. That's what we are watching F1 for. And if Alonso then overtakes Massa, yes, then it's. But when Alonso can't get passed, then he isn't faster. Massa did a better job today, but Ferrari didn't want him to win. And world class drivers in F1 won't crash into eachother, they are smart enough not to be so stupid. Come on. Be reasonable.


Asking Button to save the car is the same thing than asking Button not to overtake Hamilton.

If Alonso was first and slower than Massa, and was asked to let Massa through, the controversy would be the same ( and this time Ridiculous as Alonso is in front of Massa in the championship table )!

Asking drivers not to race each other at the end of the race is maybe OK when they are first and second, especially when you see what RBR did, but asking a driver to let the lead to his team-mate, at this stage of the championship, and after making a brillant first part of the race, is not acceptable. Alonso was faster than Massa, ok! But then he should overtake him ontrack, on a legal way. Vettel behind wasn't a threat at all ( that's what I think ).
Once again, Massa AND Alonso didn't deserve a penalty at all. Ferrari did deserve a penalty ( and they are punished ).

We must ask Massa what contract did he sign for a number 2 driver? and when Alonso screws up then he can win - thats how it was when Barrichello was with Michael

I think Massa should start trying for other teams. Red Bull & Mercedes are a good option for him. It seems like Ferrari extended Massa's contract out of pity of his crash in Hungary 2009. I am beginning to think, what mind games would they have played with Kimi Raikkonen to make him end his contract soon and leave ...

Q: Sebastian, another pole that sadly for you, you could not covert into victory. It was the start once again?
Sebastian Vettel: Yeah, usually we have very good starts. Yesterday I was told Ferrari have good starts but I think up to today we had better ones. Not really sure what happened. I had quite a lot of grip, dumped the first clutch, so I had a big of a bog, so the first five to 10 metres of the acceleration were very poor. I was lucky I didn't stall the engine. I could get going again but lost the momentum, so I knew that it would be very tight with Fernando who was already side-by-side, so there was no way I could stay ahead of him. Then I was a little bit surprised when I saw Felipe come from the left. But still after that I think we had a good race. We knew it would be very tight. The closer you get you start to feel the tyres losing a bit of grip, starting to have a bit of graining but I think the majority of the race the Ferraris were probably just that tenth or two quicker than us, so it was difficult for us to keep up the pace. Towards the end we were able to push again a little bit but it is very tricky. You cannot really do your own rhythm as then you get so many lapped cars and depending on where you find them on the circuit, especially the last sector where it is very narrow, you can drop a lot of time and lose a lot of time but the race is done, so we finished third. I think we can be proud of that. We achieved our maximum today, so congratulations to Ferrari and I am pleased to be on the podium. Very special for me for my home grand prix to see the people here, be on that podium and see everyone cheering. It is very nice and emotional.


is it just me or does Vettel always have excuses for why he cant win from pole

Ferrari did the right thing. The way they did it was wrong and stpid. The decision itself was 100% correct.
Massa is a chump and will always be a chump. He has no chance to win the championship. Fernando is back in the fight. Massa has the number 2 status in his contract, he earns a lot of money for that and if he in´t happy with that, he is free to leave. He behaved like an idiot anyway in the press conference actually confirming the team orders more or less.

Now all the haters can come out once more, but you know what? THis doesn´t change a thing. Ferrari didn´t sell 1 car less after Austria 2002 and they won´t sell 1 car less after Hockenheim 2010, because Ferrari customers don´t give a s*** about what happens in F1 or which politics the team stand for. The Ferrari brand is a cult, Red Bull will never be such a thing. They can f*** off to Austria and sell their unhealthy drinks.

Viva Ferrari!
Viva Alonso!

I can guarantee you that no Red Bull driver wins the championship, it´s either a McLaren driver or Alonso. Red Bull are a bunch of whining, overhyped and spoilt bitches!
