No way is Kobayashi going to get through the first corner okay :-(
I'll take a Vettel win though. Want Alonso to fail. And, as much as it's bad for Heidfeld, I want Petrov to do well. His voice absolutely kills me.
Why does everyone on here love Heidfeld? Or is it just you saying it like a million times? ;)
(as Hamilton gets past Petrov... damn)
How do you decide what to show? Probably why it's flicking through the field so much "look, honestly, nothing is going on anywhere".
Be interesting to see how the Spanish Scumbag deals with a faster car right up his arse.
Other than that it's dullnesstastic.
(apologies for going off on a tangent)
(including another driver) - could have been multiple major injuries.
Why pull him in then? Either get him in first lap or leave him out.... sigh....
I'd swap all this for one nice overtake though...
kubica is only 5 points behind rosberg in the championship. so massive shame he couldn't take advantage of him going out :(
how the fuck no one got hurt by that flying wheel...
vettel is a c*nt
button's gonna finish 6th again right god he's mindblowingly consistent
Vettel penalty, unsurprisingly.
Would love to see him win the title.
You have Nick Heidfeld as a reserve driver. Assess the logic of that for me, k?
Also, Schumacher needs some kind of fine/penalty for that. Awful.
you were talking about heidfeld with someone on here and they pointed out that he is a very solid driver who can get lots of consistent results but hasn't shown that little extra edge that wins lots of races/a championship. so i agree with you 100% that he deserves the place over schumacher. if their test driver wasn't a proven driver in F1, but heidfeld would surely do better than him. not to mention heidfeld wouldn't try to kill someone.
Said it when he announced his return and regularly since, he needs to give up. Simply not good enough.
It gives Heidfeld the seat.
Gets him back out of F1. Schumacher's done nothing but embarress himself this season.
Ghost of Daniel Kelly appears to be lurking nearby.
Schumacher hasnt been an embarrassment, he started the season very badly, but rosberg's a good driver and the margin between them has decreased quite a lot. and he's had a shoddy car lately
Some weekends its smaller, other weekends its bigger. I don't think his performance has been embarrassing but some of the moves he's pulled on the track have been pretty shameful.
The last four or five races, he's averaged around 0.6 seconds slower than Rosberg in qualifying and only finished ahead three times all season, twice if you discount yesterday where Nico was well ahead. I think it's fair to say it looked promising in Spain from him and that he might have got up to speed, but since then he's flattered to decieve again, not just in terms of pace, but in terms of quality of driving.
Moves like yesterday's, on Kubica in Canada (twice pushing the Renault onto the grass) have been if anything more reckless than his worst excesses when he was at his best, and his defence of them to the media has been little short of a disgrace - unwilling to even countance the fact that he may have gone too far in his level of aggression.
Given the legacy he left when he retired and the kind of performance he used to be capable of, even with the few scars on his reputation, his level of performance now just isn't up to scratch any more, and his attitude's doing himself a disservice as well.
Nasty pitstop incident, could have been so much worse.
Fuck Schumacher - that move on Barrichello was fucking ridiculous, he could have killed the man. Maximum respect to Rubens for finding that gap and making it stick.
What a dick.
Good work from Petrov today.
Although, Webber has to be driver of the day after that storming middle-stint.
The safetycar stuff was farcical.
Everything I've said here has already been said here, I'm sure.
Webber drove a blinder post-SC to pit stop, and deserved his win. Vettel on SC in-lap looked very suspicious; probably deserved his penalty in all fairness. Lewis unlucky to come undone with transmission failure; 4th would have been good damage limitation. Great drives from Petrov, Hulk and Kamui (kudos too for Pedro for finally getting some points, regardless of his penalty in Valenica). Jenson looks a bit toothless and needs to Schummy deservedly punished on and off the track for his move - Rubens didn't need to go left, and the replay clears shows that Michael was watching for him before moving over.
Is what I meant to write. Bollocks.
...he finished each race a place or so behind Lewis. It's a bit of a broken record going on about not being able to find any grip, though. It might well be true but it just sounds a bit pathetic.
