To make the attempt, I think, was quite reasonable. To persist with it, when it became apparent that it wasn't going to come off, that was a bit optimistic, yeah.

On the other hand - if you try and be conservative and responsible at the start - like Webber, you get swamped. It's a tough sport.

The biggest suprise to me was no SC this race. A good clean fast race. Too bad some of the mid-markers could not catch the front, would have made it more fun. Have a good day all, I have American football in 30min..

10 cent (chinese yuan has risen). imagine if it had been vettel who had made that move on massa, the site would have been inundated with criticism. but lulu should have backed off just a fraction when he realised that he had no room. if he had done so, he just might have been still leading the wdc.
webbers mistake was the worst. dropping back in the hope that hulk would get a penalty. only woke up when he heard that there was no penalty. wdc is not won with attitudes like that. it must be attack, attack, attack.

Aha, so Racy, marbles,arcuid and evil ken evil, were three posters who replied to my post in another feature. So now we know who the real and confirmed Fernando Alonso haters are. Not only but they showed me how stupid and ignorant they are by not reading the whole post. The tennis guy said he liked what he saw in the mirror, ha ha, so does humpty-dumpty.

Today's, Alonso's, absoultely magificent win at Monza, without any interferenec from rain, safety car, Barichello type incidents, etc showed that he is not just the best driver in F1, but that he deserves to win this year's WDC.

Massa did a great job on Hamilton. Serves the **** right. That idiot Webber buggered up his start once again and let lover boy go past him. Well done Massa, you earned your $$ today.

Every bold move in motor racing has one of two outcomes.Either it is acclaimed for brilliance when succesful(Mansell vs Senna,Hakkinnen vs Schumacher)or damnified for foolhardiness and stupidity if it fails (Vettel vs Webber and and Lewis vs Massa today).That's all nonsense.Racing is hard-ball stuff, for men with nuts of stone and moves of bravery.More power to Vettel, Lewis and their type. Without them and their moves, I have no interest in a pantsy, pancy, fancy, boring merry go round lap after lap.

The start at Monza is always very tricky especially for grid positions 1 and 2 due to the way the first corner and chicane are positioned in close proximity to the start line. One notices that car no.2 is on the inside at the first corner and then car no 1 is on the inside at the chicane both of which are very tight.
Jenson got the better of Fernando at the first corner because he was on the inside, and then boxed him at the chicane. A very good start for Jenson, absolutely.

The first three cars were well ahead of the rest led by Rosberg, so Fernando was biding his time for a well timed move or a mistake from Button to overtake him. As it turned out, Jenson pitted first, then it was up to the pit team to get Fernando out that second ealier. Well done here. The aggression shown by Fernando when he exited also has a lot to do with the final position.

A well deserved win indeeed. Welldone Fernando.

By the way Crash, fernando did not just "nose" in to a win at Monza. He overtook jenso by nearlt THREE seconds, and then again he was administering the race in the last few laps.
As I said above, his racing ability when he exited the pit lane, and fought off Jenson in such a capable way when jenson was already on full speed, with warm tyres shows the ability of this 2 x WDC. Crash, should show more respect to Fernando, I'm afraid.

A clear example of how Alonso/Button can handle pressure and how Hamilton still finds it difficult in taking pressure.
its a pity as LH is faster then both of them but not when it comes to setting up his car.
More speed power than brain power i guess.

To whom ever you are, I am not a Alonso hater, nor do I 'hate' any driver who has the nerve to drive F1. It is just I am not bias towards any team regardless of driver. Just want good racing as anyone on this site will probably confirm. Good race today and half-time is over..Adios
