dude. sorry, i do not understand what you are saying! first of all, you say that lulu should have backed off, then when i said , did you expect him to say after youu claude, you say that is exactly what he did. so, first of all you say he didnt, then you say he did.

I am in no way saying that the accident was Lulu's fault in fact as I have seen it I will put the blame squarely on RG and I am also of the same opinion as Richard namely that the whole fracas might have been started by Maldonado, having said all that I also believe that Lulu did nothing to try and avoid contact with RG, I expected him to at least try to avoid it, am saying this because I believe that a driver should at least try to avoid an accident even if he is compromised.

Good run from Massa. OK so 3 drivers who would probably have finished in front of him went out at the first corner but still a good punt.
Let's hope he can start believing in himself now and ignore all the nay-sayers.

Congrats to the guys on the podium- great driving by all three!

As for Schumacher- a great job for most of the race, but that pit entry was ridiculous. Should be a big, fat fine/penalty for THAT. (Amazing driving by Vettel to avoid an accident.)

Although I 100% blame RG for the startline and 100%don't blame LH, Sunny/107 makes a good point that IF LH had backed out/moved further into that tiny remaining gap, his start MAY have been compromised but he may well have scored points. I'll counter that though by asking how many drivers can I think of in my 30 plus yeas watching F1 would ACTUALLY have done that, and I can only think of two, Lauda and Prost.

Also, for Amigo's benefit, not only was that not the biggest start-of-GP shunt ever, it wasn't even the biggest at Spa! check out the youtube vid of the 1998 start.
