    Heidfeld beats Kubica… Real shame Nick doesn’t have a reputation of being quick despite beating Kimi, Robert, Webber..

    • Same feeling here about Quick Nick. For as much as I like Heikki, I would love to see Heidfeld in a McLaren next season.

      • Ciaran said on 1st November 2009, 20:30

        Same. Remember in 2001, when Nick outdrove Kimi in the Sauber, and was still beaten to the McLaren drive? Now is the time to get him back. Hopefully…

      • Dennis said on 1st November 2009, 22:31

        I second that! There is almost no way McClaren can lose the constructor’s championship if they hire Nick Heidfeld. He does need to work on his qualifying a bit I guess because Kubica was a lot quicker most of the time. But unless someone does something really reckless and crash into him or something you can be 99.9% sure he’s going to finish the race and probably will do that scoring points. So then you have Hamilton, just one of the quickest guys out there and Heidfeld, great tactician and possibly the most consistent driver in the field.

        Kobayashi was by far the most impressive debut driver this year and he definetly deserves a race seat. A lot of names at the top I wouldn’t expect at the start of the season! I kind of thought Hamilton would do well, Alonso too after his strong second half of 2008 (even without “crashgate”), I expected Raikkonen to get back up. Also figured Vettel would do pretty well but didn’t imagine him being second but that’s the only thing that went well. Hamilton, Alonso, Raikkonen, big names, never had a chance at the championship. Instead Jenson Button won it. I’m really happy for him and he definetly deserves it but I never expected it. So great job to Brawn Gp, their first half of the season was a fairy tale like story. Brilliant!

      I sure am loving all the recognition Heidfeld is getting around here :)

    goodjob for kobayashi for getting 3pts for the last race of the season!!! hope to see him racing on 2010.

    Funny thing is that after winning 6 of the first 7 races, button still manages to finish up with less than 100 points!

    • Dougie said on 1st November 2009, 17:19

      He came to within 3 points of your beloved Hamilton’s total, and with one less race as well (2008 – 18 races, 2009 – 17 races).

      The competition was much more spread out this year also, unlike last year when Hamilton just had Massa to deal with. Massa beat Hamilton in total race wins as well last year (6 to 5).

        *cough* Spa *cough*

        I think you just proved his point!

        Even at a stretch, McLaren probably only had the best car for 7 or so races last year. Brawn had the best for at least 8. And Button only missed out on scoring once, and still couldn’t beat Lewis’ total!

        • Dougie said on 1st November 2009, 20:25

          Brawn had the best for at least 8.

          LOL!! That makes me laugh… the first 2 races, maybe 3, after that it was competitive, then after Turkey and the colder races it was well behind.

    • Terry Fabulous said on 1st November 2009, 20:46

      And in thirty years time no one will give a rats about the points, they will just remember

      JENSON BUTTON!!!!
      WOOOORRRRLLLDDD CHAMPION!!!!!!!!!

      • Harv's said on 2nd November 2009, 2:07

        keep saying it because you will never say it at the end of a season again!

        if he is so great then why does it seem that mclaren want kimi over him?

        • Terry Fabulous said on 2nd November 2009, 4:58

          Oh Boo Hoo Harv, stop having a sook and being boring.

          Give him some credit, let him have a few weeks in the sun.

          WWWWOOOOOOOORRRRRRRLLLLLDDDDDDDDD
          CHAMPPPPPP-ION!!

    Massa 22 points same as Kovy and with a lot less races…

    • TommyB said on 1st November 2009, 18:35

      Shows what a joke Kovy is. A useless driver

      • Thats harsh. It doesn’t help when McLaren favour Lewis.

        • sato113 said on 1st November 2009, 20:16

          every team tends to favour one driver…

          • Harv's said on 2nd November 2009, 2:10

            true! why is it that when its happening at mclaren, everone gets there claws out? have we just forgot schumi at ferrari at least mclaren havnt asked kovi to move over for hamilton on track!

            oh, for that to happen kovi would have to be in front of hamilton

        • mp4-19b said on 2nd November 2009, 2:42

          Thats harsh. It doesn’t help when McLaren favour Lewis.

          FFS!! Stop moaning about that!! Why the hell would mclaren want to conspire against Kovi?? He is driving for them & mclaren are desperate for the constructors title. I have the greatest sympathies for Kovi, but the guy is just not delivering. And I just cannot accept driving style BS!! Its a lame excuse to cover up your shortcomings. I think its in the best interests of both mclaren & kovi that he finds a seat somewhere else. He’s not yet ready for mclaren, he never was. The guy must consider himself lucky, he wouldn’t have landed up at mclaren but for that alonso spat & he’s blown his chances.

          • mp4-19b said on 2nd November 2009, 2:52

            Kovi is the ONLY driver on the grid that has failed get a podium despite having a decent car(second half at least). Everyone else have! Butto,rubens,seb,webbo,hammi,kimi,glock,trulli,fisi,nick,kubica add anyone I’ve missed.

            My question is what prevented Kovi from finishing on the podium? McLaren would have been ecstatic if he managed just that. His best classification this year is a 5th place!! And yet he criticizes the team! His performance didn’t surprise me at all. Even with a championship winning car last year, he finished on the podium only three times. All three were lucky. I think mclaren have been over-considerate towards Kovi. He needs a break to reassess his purpose in f1.

          • francois said on 3rd November 2009, 21:46

            Agreed.Kovy’s just been distinctly underwhelming over the past two years for the most part.He did finish P4 in Valencia though – not quite as bad as you said later :) .But he certainly had the car in the second half of the season to get at least one podium (certainly at Monza).

            At least Barrichello was fast enough sometimes to give Schumi a good run for his money every now and then.

        • Didn’t hurt Alain Prost too much…

  5. Ferrari and McLaren battle this year had a dissapointing ending. Neither team scored.

  6. Kamui Kobayashi was impressive and aggresive. I liked him. Hope Toyota puts him in next year.

  7. 2nd year in a row that the constructors title was won with 172 points.

    I like the way Nelson Piquet is officially listed as having come last …

  9. Kanyima said on 4th November 2009, 9:49

    Now that Toyota has pulled out, Kobayashi’s phone must be one of the busiest after watching his last two races.

    I hope Mclaren grab him to partner Hamilton seeing Kimi is asking for an arm and a leg.
