hope that weather clears when I go there in August during GTAcademy
Well. Best GP of the year so far, certainly the most eventful.
So rain makes it better does it? Didn't look like that to me.
Sucks for Williams, but a point for Alonso. McLaren have scored points TWICE. Wow.
Is it just me who thinks the mood in the podium room is almost always unbearably awkward?
Williams didn't lose this race on anything they did, or didn't do, today. They can't beat Mercedes in a straight fight, and their car sucks in the wet.
Did you also notice the way everything Hamilton did was the right thing to do, and everyone who did the same thing had made a mistake? They kept talking about the undercut being almost impossible because of the shirt pit length, but when Hamilton went for it, it was suddenly a moment of tactical brilliance.
And people wonder why I don't like Hamilton. I'm not British, so I'm not drinking the Kool-Aid, but every other week, I get Hamilton's supposed brilliance rammed down my throat. In terms of actual performances, he was probably about fourth-best today; Rosberg, Bottas and Massa all out-performed him in terms of racecraft.
Yeah. And Vettel and Rosberg speaking German doesn't help it for Hamilton. If I were Hamilton, I'd hit the books and learn some German.
Bottas and Massa were only better if you ignore the wet part of the race.
Seems illogical to dislike a driver because of some race commentators and media outlets. I like or disfavour drivers by their on track action.
The Anti Hamilton hate is strong in this one.
Race started exciting, ended up boring.
And Hamilton was only better at the end in the rain.
In the dry he could only get passed the Williams due to the better pit strategy and after the first little rain Rosberg would've gotten him easily if it didn't had started to rain again.
That does have a lot to do with the fact that the car is a mess in the wet.
it was half good which sadly makes it probably the best one this year.
They weren't going to win anyways. If anything, their brilliant start limited the damage Mother Nature inflicted on them.
A lot of good fortune with the timing of the stops. The only thing he didn't need was the rain; both Williams could've held back Rosberg for the duration of the race.
Mercedes had no need to push the pace on track when they knew they had superior pit strategy to win them the race.
And the rabid fans. Hamilton's are worse than Raikkonen's in their fervour. It's very difficult to like a driver when you're constantly being told how amazing he is to the point where any dissenting voice is treated like a Russian opposition party.
Lewis: "I think, for the *first* time in my career, I made the right tire choice."
Can't fault him for his honesty, there...
Which is what happens when you run minimal downforce for the straights. It's swings and roundabouts.
The rain saved Rosberg from losing even more points.
Congrats to Lewis for the win, but biggest cheer has to go to Fernando for dragging that POS McLaren to a point
It is illogical, yes, but I had the same problem with Vettel when he was at RedBull. You just get fed up with a driver when you hear the whole time just "Vettel, Vettel, Vettel" or in this case "Lewis, Lewis, Lewis". I think it's just something that automatically happens in the back of your head without really noticing it. I personally dislike Lewis for his garbage personality, but respect him for his driving skills.
They lost 3rd place though, which had nothing to do with their car's performance in the wet.
I heard them mention about how they didn't think the undercut would work, as that was the info Crofty, Brundle and Ted must have been picking up from the teams. You just hear what you want so you can come here and complain.
As I've pointed out before, I'm not English either, yet 95% of sporting TV programs that are broadcast in Scotland*, come from England, so I know exactly where you're coming from, but you're getting very wearing, just like that broken record.
And you call the English whinging poms...
* We barely get Scottish national football teams games broadcast live, yet we get all of England's, complete with English commentary, who think they are broadcasting to an English audience.
Shame Alonso rammed "Our Jens" out of the race. What actually happened to start that mess up on lap 1?
Every single possible bad thing that can happen in a Grand Prix start.
Vettel is definitely more likeable now.
From the looks of it, a Lotus or Toro Rosso made a bold move down the inside and started a domino effect.
