Being cool, calm and collected in addition to getting a competitive car from his team, won the day over aggresion, combine the two drivers and you would have the perfect f1 pilot, might not win every race, but he will always be there, top job for the top three, hard luck stories for the others, all part of f1

Well i hear that Whitmarsh has admited giving JB the race win, but Lewis did make a mistake, and macca knew that he would get a penalty for what he did,i guess it would have been different if vettel was in P5, 30 sec adrift,.... so the team decided to give JB the win, bearing in mind the sale of merchandise for the team,200th JB anniversary, what could be better,it goes down in history better than if Lewis was to win the race.
No hard feelings, its business as usual.

Well what's done is done. Wrong tire calls for Lewis and Mark Webber, spins, but there were great scraps and great racing among team mates and foes. Jenson deserved it. Lets be gracious here.

Great race and typical Jenson win, good for you JB. Rain and tire management. But the big surprise is RB's falling performance. I think we'll see Vettel settle for a lot of 3rds and 4ths as he cruises towards another WDC.

So Jonathan Neale of McLaren tells the BBC that the inter tires was Lulu's call, but the Hamfans know better than him? They know that it was a poor decision by the team. How very predictable.
Out of interest Hamfans, who was it that spun Lulu's car? I'm guessing it was probably Martin Whitmarsh!

"No, another pure luck out in changeable conditions & nothing more"

You make your own luck and it is really interesting that Jenny is lucky for the third time under the same set of circumstances. What are the odds of hitting the moon with a rock for the third time...let's give credit where credit is due.
