  1. Its two successive retirements at Spa for Jenson. Last year, got whacked from behind, this year, got whacked from the side! Poor guy..

    Nya-ha! No points for Alonso!

    You know what they say about payback …

    • LOL. How many unprovoked errors does Alonso need to make for people to realise he is only the shadow of the driver he used to be pre-07 and pre-Ham ? I have stopped counting since Canada 2007.

      • Alonso is still an extremely quick. Yes, he does make mistakes, but he’s only human. Alonso deserves to be the highly rated driver he is, and anyone who can’t see is ignorant.

    I actually think Liuzzi did pretty good there. A shame for him, he could not get the last point.

    Very good running from Petrov and Kobayashi.

    This was a very nice race, let there be more of this. This year just keeps giving us a great level of racing.

      Very good running from Petrov and Kobayashi.

      It’s gonna be really interesting to see which one of these two comes out on top as the rookie of the year at the end of the season. They both have trouble in qualifying. I think Kobayashi generally makes fewer mistakes than Petrov in the race, but with the improvements made to the Renault, Petrov definitely has an equipment advantage over Kobayashi.

    Jaimes not 10th now :( he’s got a penalty. Gutted.

  5. Petrov from last to 9th. That boy is just a bucket of racing feistiness

    Was this the first race in a long long time where there were absolutely no mechanical retirements?

  7. Jonathan Proctor said on 29th August 2010, 19:22

    Yamamoto was 20th not Chandhok.

    On Vettel and Button coming together.

    I personally can’t see any difference between this incident and the one between Barrichello and Alonso except for the fact that due to luck, the instigator of an accident in one situation managed to continue, whereas in another, didn’t, while the victim received the DNF. This fact is not up to the drivers involved whatsoever, it’s just in the hands of fate once they lose control of the car.

    Both drivers arrived at the same corner too fast, when it had just started to rain, and as a consequence, caused a major collision. Why then, does Barrichello escape penalty, while Vettel gets a drive through? I’m not saying that Vettel should have been let off, nor that Rubens should go unpunished, but merely that in a same fact scenario, the Stewards should act in the same manner.

    • US_Peter said on 29th August 2010, 22:35

      Most likely because Barrichello had already punished himself sufficiently in the eyes of the stewards, whereas Vettel punished himself slightly, but Button paid the ultimate price… That would be my guess as to their logic anyhow.

    Yamomoto is an absolute joke – lapped by everyone, including other new teams. I know it has happened before to Senna ahd Chandok this year, but on a track as long as Spa, it shouldnt be happening.

    If Senna hadn’t retired, I very much doubt he would have been lapped by Virgin or Lotus cars.
