As it was excepted,the Pirelli tyres doesn't suit Hamilton's driving style so he has to make different choices to his teammate.Hope that this strategy will give the excepted results.

What's matter with McLaren. Once again Jenson does a great Job But they only want to talk about Hamilton or is it the Media?????. I'm personally getting fed up with the Hamilton Hype. Yes Hamilton's and Out & Out Racer but that won't work this year. He's got to learn quickly, Like Jenson, and start thinking.
MCLAREN Praise where Praise is due please.

If so, a good move by him, as Alonso was all over him last race. I like Ferrari, but at the moment Mac is faster and really...what is up with Mac n the Ferrari suits..Ron always did want to be Enzo...

@ticdtop.

Yes Jenson did a good job but do you rely think Lewis was trying? it was quite obvious that 3rd was better than second as there is no way he could have got pole...clean side of the track plus 1 set of new tyres.

Newbie - what advantage? Being able to wreck your tyres quicker than the other 2 closest competitiors is not an advantage.

BTW, what was your previous handle? Put us out of our misery will you please? You're not the evil twin are you?

Newbie - on occasion. So you claim you were called Sarah? I don't think I had any discussions with that user.

About the race, I think Button is the one that is sitting pretty. Red Bulls KERS is not yet reliable and I think Vettel cooked his in qualifying. Hamilton may be too hard on the tyres again leaving the way clear for Button.
