A couple of points about the Canadian GP

1) It shouldn't have started behind the safety car
2) Upon the restart the safety car stayed out so long drivers were switching to intermediates
3) Schumacher showed, (without DRS) that he is still amazing in the rain and was a pity he didn't get a deserved podium
4) Button drove a stormer
5) Lewis was not impressed

They got it right today, but given that they are different for each race, who knows what they'll do next.

Also, I feel they are taking too close an interest in things happening on the track. The number of investigations they were carrying out was way too much.

I FEEL SORY FOR HAMILTON,what a surprised that Button not any punishments taking out both Alonso and Hamilton, you can see on imotion picture Button looking his left side mirror and he saw that Hamilton was comin and turn into Hamilton and smash in to the wall.

Your feeling sorry for Lewis. I am sure he is doing sufficient of that himself.

I have nothing but admiration for Hamiltion and his passion to win however he needs to wind back the aggression needle and think the bigger picture before it destroys him and his ambitions within the sport.

Richard I noticed your comment earlier about sliding into other cars due to the conditions and in your opinion this was acceptable.No it is not. Drivers of this pinnacle should be well aware to drive to the conditions and make the acceptable allowances. It is commonsense and learnt from an early age.

now most of the hypocrites pls be honest and tell what if alonso won this race and button ended up in retirement? i mean, had alonso escaped the sanctions like button did? no, isn't? hmm?

commodore. yes i accept what you are saying, but apart from lulu and button not making allowances, do you not think that webber and alonso were also guilty of the same mistake? ie. not giving more room? both knew that there was somebody trying to pass.
that is why i said it is a racing incident. both parties made an error of judgement, in both incidences.

Richard it is the responsibility of the passing car
to do so in a responsible manner. It is not the responsibility of the lead car to allow a free pass.

It would be a different situation if not for position.

Things happen/people learn.

Absolutely agree Sean, Button moved to cover hamilton but didn't realise that Hami was much quicker so actually turned into him. It is a sad fact of the sport that if JB had gone off and not LH then LH would have been in for a severe punishment, as he was on the receiving end the stewards were ok with it.. It wouldn't be the first time that Hami was penalised for someone turning into him..
Nice to Vettel crack this weekend, as with motogp there are a few riders/drivers that have the ability to win comfortably given the best kit, Vettel is one of them no more than that.
Still great race and great win for Mclaren, Redbull have had it too easy for too long..
