Williams drivers ruined my day. First Senna causing Kobayashi damage and messing up his race after a great start. Then Maldonado taking out Hamilton in the end, just shows lack of skill and judgement from Maldonado as he had plenty of time left to get passed Hamilton who's tires were well and truly shot.

Pastor Maldonado, I DINT THINK YOU HAD IT IN YOU.

My hero of the day! I think you drove a brilliant race maybe a little bit controversial in the end but thats something I m sure your fans will get used to. Maybe a little bad judgement, on your part, but thats certainly no bad judgement on how you read the situation and saw an opertunity. You used it to your advantage, after all a little shunt with Armco is nothing unusual for some of the SLIGHTLY more experienced drivers than youself. Sometimes it is difficult to read into the situation and see the Armco coming right at you. Should have gone to specsavers huh?

Regarding Pastors collision with Lewis today.
It will be interesting what comes out of the Stewards enquiry for todays race in Spain.

I have never seen a driver take that line in a chicane before.
PM's car finished up raised on the kerb with no steering, the front wheels were not touching the ground. Straight into Lewis.

PM should have stayed off track, continued and rejoined the track behind Lewis, after the chicane and resume his attack. He would have overtaken Lewis.

I see Pastor is blaming Lewis for this accident. :(
Reckon this guy needs a Mentor, anyone to educate him!

At pc, the only suspention he was chasing was LooLee s. He put it to the bounce over my wheel test. The ultimate test for the 'MP 4 whatever'. I honestly think it was a racing incedent and a more experienced driver(Loolee) shwould have read into the situation and given more space, then quite simply I 'm sure any track position gained would have had to be surendered, at it would have been gained off track but now we have the argument that Looser pushed him too wide and didnt give him his racing line, afterall Looser was gettting near the end of a long day and its been a long year for him (bless him). After all, he lost postition to Kimi through his own misjudgement. Also did his usual flat spotting his tyres so he really SHOULD have anticpated more?

@Bongo,Nickscherzinger &crashkid.

2 things are obvious.

1. you are all the same person
2. you have misunderstood what qualifies a 'looser'. A 'looser' is not a 20-something travelling the world, getting paid millions of pounds to drive an exotic race car around a track.

A 'looser' is a feeble minded child who can barely spell, yet shows his ignorance and jealousy as if a virtue.

@ evelcyclops. One things obvious, either way you re not happy?

Theres no definition, in my humble opinion. A looser is a genral and somewhat 'slang' term for somebody that genrally passes blame, winges, makes a fool of himself, throws his toys out the proverbial. Sound familiar?

Pastor could not be described as a Looser. He's brought a lot of good to the Williams team. Hes a winner. I still have my doubts on the other hand as to weather 'Looser' has passed his Rookie season.

Do you know what a Rookie is? Thats a retoricle question from my point of view but where you are concerned its a question you might need to be able to answer, huh.
