  1. I think it will be very tough for McLaren now, they haven’t quite got the speed of Red Bull and Ferrari.

    Also, a pity for Massa to lose the small break he had over Rosberg and Kubica he gained in Monza.

  2. Well, what a great race. Miffed for Hamilton, but what a great great race by ALO, KUB and VET. And hell, why did BUT just never even trie to attack?

    • I think Webber was running at Button’s lap time because of older tires. Had they been fresh he would have been faster. So Button couldn’t close the gap because the McLaren was simply not fast enough.

      • And Button did not need to risk overtaking webber.

          Why not ?
          And besides, Button had a much better getaway than Hamilton and still he let him by at the first turn. Why ????????
          As much as I like him, one has to admit that he is much too “soft”.

  3. It’s not over for Lewis, he is less than a win away. I’s so unpredictable and he is the second best driver in contention.

    • Exactly, he is still close. Look at where Alonso came from 2 races ago.

      That said, it does look like McLaren is a bit behind with development now and are not really catching the RBR and Ferrari.

      Button is still 24 points behind. It is starting to get pretty tough for his as well.

  4. Enjoyed that, worth staying up till 12:15am for :)

  5. Lewis’s pass looked like the famed Silverstone swindle in ’06. Shame Webber didnt yield a bit, like Adrian did to Kubica.
    Lost a bit of respect for the Aussie for that one.

    • He did the exact same thing back in melbourne. n then to vettel as well when they both crashed in the end.

      • “then to vettel as well when they both crashed in the end.”

        Why should he give up? They’re racing drivers. If he’s going to let people pass he should go home.

        • 100% agreed. Its the attacking drivers responsibility to get past cleanly. The defending driver had to stick to his path, which is exactly what Webber did. The only alternative for Webber was to either brake early (HAM had the same option, but like Webber, he did not take it) or skip the track and receive a penalty. So obviously Webber stuck to his line, as is his right.

        • Agree! Sammy is a huge fan of Hamilton that’s he cried big time. It’s pretty normal to do the thing, stick to his path and fight for the championship. He’s not Yamamoto or Chandruk that will give way to Hamilton.

    • Lewis should have done wat Kubica did to Sutil. HE should have taken more ground and the move was done.

    The matador is in the arena on a stalion if I were a bull I’d be very scared.

    • Looks like Alonso is up for a nice Bull fight there Rampante. Still Webbers lead hs not been this big before, if he gets on the podium all the races it is still his to lose.

  7. It’s not over for Hamilton. But it’s now Alonso’s title to lose. The Ferrari is now likely as good as the RBR, at least in Alonso’s hands, and Webber just cannot go toe to toe with Alonso.

  8. Kubica was epic at the end wasn’t he? I know he had new tyres but a lesser driver wouldn’t have got close to doing what he did… Pass after pass on a course not known for its ease to pass.

    I feel absolutely gutted for Hamilton, you could see it in his body language… I’m surprise he didn’t do a Hakkinen. I think his championship hopes just took a very large dent.

  9. Remember the much talked about Singapore McLaren update was NOT used and it should appear at Suzuka, and this was a high downforce track where McLaren were always going to be weakest of the 3 so perhaps next time, a med downforce track, McLaren can compete :D

    • fingers crossed or it will be curtains for ham and but in two weeks time

    • The Suzuka S-es and the following turns 6-7-8-9 look like they were made for the RB6. The part before and after ‘spoon’ might be good for the Macca’s.

      Anyhow, the season is really building up to a climax!

  10. Alonso is looking absolutely brilliant. 3 wins, 1 2nd place and a DNF from the last 5 races, as opposed to Lewis with 1 win and 3 DNFs in the last 4 races. Can Alonso keep this momentum going?

    • The pattern this season seems to be a driver has a good few races then has a messy few races so who knows what will happen :P

      • bosyber said on 26th September 2010, 17:24

        That does seem to be the pattern, indeed. Let’s just take it one race at the time and hope for more exciting races with various winners who had to fight for it.

  11. Is there any doubt that Alonso is much better than Massa, and the cars get developed in his hands?.
    I still think he is the best pilot, and the fastest driver in the championship.

    • Dennoow said on 26th September 2010, 17:26

      Well he’s proven that today didn’t he? Absolutely amazing race by Fernando Alonso! 2 hours of perfect driving, absolutely flawless! If he keeps this form going, there’s no one who can compete with him. Hamilton has the speed but he’s a little too reckless at times, Webber and Vettel have the car but not that sheer pace Alonso has. It’s going to be an interesting finish of the season!

    What a race! It shows one thing – its the driver and the car that make good races, don’t blame the circuit. There’s no incident over the notorious turn 10, nor the damp turn 5, nor the bumps . . . its all about the driver and the car.

  13. xabregas said on 26th September 2010, 15:56

    Still a long way to go, all 5 drivers have hopes to take the championship.
    Still the Red bull is the best car out their, but ferrari is all over them and the next races should suit better the mclaren.
    The only thing that can take away the championship from red bull is that they have, as mclaren, both drivers fighting so they can take away crutial points to each other and alonso be the one who really benefits from that.

  14. Fantastic finish by Alonso!!! very intense championship run now the last couple of races but great win for Ferrari

    Alonso has the impetus to challenge till the very end.

    Red bull has a fight on their hands
