    I wonder if they told Hamilton not to bother because 3rd will be a better starting line than 2nd. Saves the tyre a bit too.

    When will this dominance be ended?

  4. tomorrow when vettel bins it & webber wins!

    Exactly the same starting grid (top 5) as last year. Lewis pulled into 2nd off the start – webber made a calamitous error by trying to cover off Hamilton and as a result lost a massive handful of places.

    Sorry to say but vettel needs to go down – Im really frustrated with webber’s performance this season (struggling with the pirellis) as he couldve been vettel’s potential ‘thorn in his side’ as he drives the same car – but what can you do?

    Despite the hardwork, mclaren dont seem to be making any significant steps, but Hamilton is surely strangling every bit of performance and a little more from that car. I think jenson is a bit of a ‘one-hit wonder’ and think too much is being read into his victory in canada.

    Yes it was a specticle but it was only made possible by the continual deployment of the safetycar everytime he fell back. If the safetycar didnt come out then jenson’s race wouldve been similar to webber’s race in china (webber had no safetycars). Also the fact that some dont seem to think jenson was in any wrong in both hamilton’s and alonso incident when in reflection…..Schumacher got ripped to shreds for barrichello’s move in hungary and also schumacher’s incident with kubica in canada 2010 – in both instances schumacher was accused and blamed – this time jenson is in the same situation and gets hailed as a hero!?

    So yes it was a great race by him but everyone seems to want to forget that the specticle was created by bernd maylander by bunching up all the drivers every once in a while. After jenson’s stop to change his puncture he ended up over half a lap down on the entire grid when the safetycar was deployed alowing him to catch right up by the time of the restart & overtaking a bunched up field especially in a car that was favourite for the track.

    -Canada was a very lucky race for jenson – I have never known a driver be given so many lucky ‘get out of jail free’ cards in one day.

      Gotta agree with pretty much everything you just said. Every dog has its day, and Jenson had his in Canada 2 weeks ago.

      I’m not too excited about Jenson being second in the WDC right now, as he was never really is a serious championship contender. Button is the kind of driver that capitalises on mistakes made by Lewis and Alonso. Not that there is anything wrong with picking up points when others falter, its just that he seems really incapable of making something happen for himself.

    Well, a pretty positive response to Red Bulls critics in the past week or so, strongest position possible.

    Never doubted anything less for at least one RB7.

    I’d love to see someone beat Red Bull, out of sheer mechanic brilliance and driving ability. I don’t want the FIA to make any more rules changes in the indirect hope of closing the gap.

    “Smooth criminal” Sutil made it back into the top 10.

    R.I.P. Michael Jackson.
