Race start midnight.... Thunderstorms about 11pm... Blackout at 11:55pm.... Power comes back on when the race is on lap 55. :banghead:



Aww poor you, have to say you didn't miss all that much to be honest, wasn't a really good race like some we have had.

I felt bad for Seb, that puncture was a real shame for him.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why we use the recommended tyre pressures according to the manufacturer. :shiny:

Gutted Vettel didn't finish the race but at least he has bagged the championship and at least Hamilton won. :yay: :yay: :clap: :clap:

Yeah, I thought it was a good drive by Lewis. The thing that amazes me about the guy is that with all the controversy he's involved in, he doesn't let that psyche him out, he just ignores it, keeps his head down and drives the best race he can. I'd love to know what was going on inside that crash helmet when he saw Sebastian leave the track in front of him on the opening lap. Bad luck for Seb and it wasn't even his fault. Still, nobody's luck can last for ever.

I'll also agree that Mark hardly covered himself in glory, did he? He wasn't able to pass Jenson who had a KERS malfunction. Still, it seems the Red Bull policy is to gear the cars for qualifying. Either that or the Renault engine doesn't have the power to gear the cars long. Whatever the case, he couldn't make a pass stick. And then there was that pit stop. :roll: I tell you, he couldn't buy luck.

Just realised Massa and Hamilton did not have their usual encounter. I am not impressed. :eerie:

Don't worry, they can crash in Brazil, they can't possibly manage to go two races without having a crash can they? :reallyevil:

Yeah, luckily for Lewis, he was able to stay well clear of Felipe.

Very late this, apologies...

Delighted with the McLaren race win, but boy, was the race a snoozer. :loser: :loser: :loser:

I watched the race on Aussie TV, have to say, it was crap. Didn't enjoy the 'banter' at all....give me Star Sports any day over this. Sorry, Aussie people...that was lame. :loser: :loser:
