bookmark this folks…

Hamilton had a fantastic race which actually deserves to be a career highlight and I applaud him for it.

It’s not often I spout a stream of verbal abuse at my driver and cheer for my sworn enemy.

Well done Lewis, you earned it.

agreed. It was a terrific win for Lewis. Safety car saved him but I was afraid it was going to hurt him too. He was class of the field. Along with Kubs.

Let me disagree, please. Hami made a fantastic race, and the way he drove back to the pits on a wet track and with only three wheels shows that the guy has really good hands. But today it has been some kind of astrological colusion. Ferrari did his very best to throw away this race. They failed to put Kimi on tyres before the three minutes limit. They made Massa to change his strategy, fuelling him for a single pitstop, just to find that they needed to change to dry tyres. And tons of luck came for Hami. First when… Read more »

why compare it to Senna? that would be silly.

but compared to anything Hamilton has done before this is a very special race…. and i think the “luck” card is getting a bit old when referring to Hamilton. In two years he’s proven to be the luckiest driver in F1 history…. or perhaps some of it might just be talent…

wait… WAIT…. I REFUSE TO DEFEND THIS TURD!!!!

He compared it to Senna because the British Press has been comparing it to Senna and Hamilton himself mentioned the spirit of Senna.

Luck is some of it but skill is most of it. “For sure”; but enough of the Senna talk at this stage of the career.

Sutil was more Senna-esque than anyone else on the track. Not very like the great man, burt perhaps the closest the current crop offered on Sunday.

Now that deserves a bookmark too!! Sutil do good?

I might stop short of a Senna comparison when it comes to Sutil, but he did run a nice race keeping out of trouble, which is the secret to Monaco. Kimi has to feel horrible for pulling a DC (where did he finish? Oh yeah…) on Adrian. Heikki should also be mentioned, but maybe not for stalling it before the formation lap.

Lastly, bone-head move of the race goes to Alonso. What the hell was he thinking?

Maybe a “nothing to loose” movement. To ride such a crazy horse (oops, donkey I mean) the way he usually does is enough for me this year. What piece of crap Renault has made!!!!

And let’s honor ourselves. I won’t say a word for a driver crashing into another while trying to overtake, because that’s what we all are missing…. Everyday everywhere asking for more overtakings and then we crucify those who risk and try to pass…. Did you enjoy the Raikkonen driving at Hungaroring last year?….

It’s true that I am one of those yearning for more overtaking, but I think that a two-time world champion should/would know better. It was a dumb move at a horrible place. And he got his nose run over for it. There’s an art to passing and I truly thought Alonso was better at it.

Alonso is my driver, my all-time No. 2 favorite… but yesterday’s move at the grand hotel was silly.

I’m all for crashes while trying to pass… but that was stupid.

I agree it wasn’t his wiser move…

Senna has 03 world championship while Hamilton has none…. Secondly, Senna made the impossible several times in memorials races, especially in Mônaco, Donington… Senna won 03 championships competing against Prost, Mansell, Piquet, Lauda and other. On the other hand Shummy just competing with Damon, Mika, Barrichelo, Villeneuve… Disregarding the traps….

I have to agree with Architrion. Ferrari did everything they could to screw up. Hamilton drove a good race, got very lucky with that scrape up against the rail that could have very easily killed his suspension, but ran a very good race. Especially with this being the first race this season in the wet w/o traction control, everyone should have expected things to go haywire, and they did.

Great drive from Lewis, and Adrian Sutil

Welcome Alabama. I think the brush with the wall actually won him the race. It changed his strategy and it was a great move by the team and a very good job by Lewis. Ferrari helped all they could. :)

My ‘moral’ podium for the race was
1. Kubica -> fast, didn’t put a foot wrong
2. Sutil -> the boy can drive in the wet
3. Webber -> kept his head while others around him were losing theirs, fast at times, not so at others (early & at first on drys)

Nothing wrong with that podium, TO. All three of them have proven to be good in the rain.
