    Which idiot voted for Yamamoto???

  2. Absolute rubbish, and I am being polite now. Vettel, Webber or Alonso Yes, Hamilton, no. If being in the media’s eye is more important than what is achieved on the track, what are we trying to achieve here?

    I don’t quite understand why you think Kubica’s overtaking of Button was not brilliant?

    They were fighting wheel to wheel on a STREET TRACK for 6 corners instantly, with cold tyres or at leaast not at their best, and not completely yet being in a race rythm – with Kubica most of the part being a little behind, so he was the one who needed to squeeze between Button’s right tyre and the wall – not mentioning Renault/Mclaren’s car class difference and the fact that they both overtook 3rd party car while fighting each other – let me repeat – it all happened on a street circuit. If this is not breath taking overtaking – then I think there is not such at all out there.
    I’m glad that this one was rewarded – becouse whole world saw milion times Barichello/Schumi (which in fact was impressive and frightening, but not requiring that much skill from Barichello), and almost noone noticed this perfect overtaking from Kubica. Till now.

    Not always the brightest star shines most beautifuly.

    This poll has slightly restored my faith in humanity.

    Hamilton so clearly the best, Rosberg was also highly impressive in a pretty rubbish Merc.

  5. Anyone with a pulse could’ve won sitting in that RB6, THAT’S why Vettel isn’t driver of 2010. Someone like Hamilton or Kubica, who manages to grab a f1 car by the scruff of the neck and do great things with it deserves that title.
