Just out of curiosity, did you feel the same way about Massa when poor old Kimi was at Ferrari drawing a very modest pay check?


No not at all. I was very frustrated :yaynot: Because I didn't respect both of them like I respect the current McLaren duo, not to mention my kimi _O_

Here's a video of the scary fire involving Heidfeld. As Lyria correctly pointed out, the marshal got hit on the leg when the side of the car exploded. And to make it worse, when they were dragging the car back to the pitlane, Vettel almost had a very nasty collision with it. :eek:

Listen, it was hard enough to drive those heavy old cars back then under normal circumstances, but with a crazed monkey clawing you at the same time, it becomes nearly impossible! http://www.timflock.com/jocko.htm

Oh and I just want to make sure everyone sees this. Vettel made a pass on Alonso, on track and made a clean move and made it stick. We all know Alonso isn't one of the easiest guys to pass either. So to all those who say he can't do it :p :p :p

Even Damon Hill used to pass somone without crashing once per season. Doesn't make him a racing driver either. Vettel would be more suited to rally driving with Kimi where you get a clear track and no one in the way when you are time trialing.
Awesome the 3rd best driver in f1 (at best) is going to be a double world champion.

There's been a whole thread about Vettel being unable to pass, there are some very interesting statistics in there too Danny, you should read it ;) I was just pointing out that Vettel made a good pass for position on the track, he wasn't gifted it, he made the pass and did it properly because some people say he can't do it at all, well he proved he can, so there :p Maybe he reads this forum and wanted to prove a point :eek: :hihi:

It's not just his passing to win, he can't pass even in the midfield. He should have won more races early in 2009 if he could have picked his way through traffic and slower cars infront of him. Great qualifier crap racer. He would have hated late 90's qualifying when you had to find space in the last 5 minutes. He would have been slower than the minardis.

Point taken, but I still like him as a driver.

Fun race. Good work by Jenson - no drama, just take the win. I don't know who the idiot was who was calling Hamilton's tire strategies, but something tells me that Andy Latham needs to go. Still, seven trips through pit lane, and Hamilton still managed 4th. One more spin from Alonso, and I think he'd have had a podium. :hihi:

And congratulations to Vettel for making that pass. I don't remember it, but I'm sure it was spectacular. :hihi:

So, are McLaren the fastest team at the moment?

At the time they said Hamilton himself made the tyre change choice, but when interviewed Hamilton said he had radio problems, and slung the blame elsewhere.
Of course, had it been the right decision, he would have taken credit :loser:

Well, with two extra pit stips, a spin amd a drive-thru penalty, Hamilton still finished ahead of Webber !!!
