@ Mika,

Why would you wave a blue flag at a car fighting for position? If that is the case, there would be no need for a race and the results can be taken from qualifying times!!!!

Webber had the responsibility to overtake safely and blew it and DC put his RBR hat on and showed his true colours.

I used to race in the Radical european masters and the speed difference between the fastest cars and the slowest was about 30mph and we topped out at 180. if we can race with such a speed difference and we are amateur then f1 drivers should be able to deal with the same.

Le Mans Series have the same kind differences and they do just fine and it even adds some excitement

Eddie, Gilles Villeneuve lost his life at over 200mph when he crashed with Jochen Mass's March in 1982 qualifying at Zolder, this happened after a very hot argument with Dider Pironi (his team mate) two weeks before at the San Marino GP over a passing move.

Motorsport is dangerous. Says so on the ticket. Won't ever change.

Coulthard made a bad call on Sunday and now can't be seen to lose face and back down. If you saw his strop on the BBC you'll know what I mean.
