    And Alonso can just stop whining, the big girl's blouse.

    That was a cracking race today - just a shame Lewis had the penalty otherwise he would have caught up with Vettel and the final third of the race would have been really good.
    As for Alonso - I did laugh when I heard on the radio after he asked what position he [ Lewis ] came out after his penalty that he was still second......' That's not fair, that's not fair....' bleeding moron.
    He is just bitter he's having a crap season.

    It'll be interesting to see what happens to the other drivers who fell foul of the safety car.

    Indeed, I'm still waiting for the report on that as there were quite a few of them. Lewis just proves what a good driver he is and how he is able to adapt when he has no down force on the car because of the damaged wing he had at the start. Compare that to say Alonso who was going well at the pratice sessions and it proves he is way ahead on that level.
    Did laugh when Mike Sch had to wait in the pit lane exit whilst the pack drove past - I was waiting for him to jump it and then get black flagged.....

    5 second penalty across the board as I read the F1 site.

    I think Lewis was in a no win situation with the Safety Car. If he'd trod on the beans, he'd have cleared it before the line, but I'd bet the stewards would have found something to penalize him for. If he'd thrown out the anchors, he'd have had a car flying over him just like Weber's prang.

    I don't see how it was entirely webber's fault. But for his somersault, we would have had an Entirely forgettable 'race'

    Webber's fault my backside! Kovalainen needs his head read thinking he had the pace in a Lotus to try and block a pass by Webber. He knew he was off the pace and should have yeilded to the faster car. Bring on the next race!

    Bah, Webber was too busy admiring himself in his wing mirrors to see the Lotus...

    They say RedBull gives you wings... i think Webber was out to prove a point with that one!

    Good race, although didn't see the climax as i unfortunately decided that it would be a good idea to waste my afternoon watching the other load of crap on BBC1 :/

    kovalinen was racing hiom for position so he dosent need to move out of the way. he diddnt move across the track just took a normal looking line (thats my read) and webber was trying to get too much of a tow and got caught out when the lotus slowed down earlier than he did personaly id say its just one of those things both drivers could of avoided it but neither did
