Well done Kamui Kobayashi he fully deserved that podium, feels like he should have got it a while ago.

Also well done to Felipe Massa a great start and hopefully that'll give him more confidence.

Gutted that Jenson couldn't get the podium but the McLaren just wasn't good enough today as Hamilton showed.

Pretty easy race for Vettel, that Red Bull is so quick. I hope Lotus can close the gap.

It look like Alonso has thrown away his championship he should have left more room for Kimi, he squeezed him on to the grass, Kimi was blameless.

Typical fanboy reply, can't say anything good about Lulu's race so tries to insult Button instead.
Button was 21 seconds ahead of Lulu at the end how do you explain that? And don't say poor set up, he should pick his own set up and if he's "the fastest driver in a bad car" he should over come a bad set up.

"Your asking a Hammi hater to be objective waste of time really, but good point." by Indy2007

@Indy that's just like asking as Hamilton fan to be objective, it works both ways

@Jayru sounds like you're refering to Jenson. Well Jenson made up place at the first corner before the turn 2 incident & he managed to pull 17 seconds on Hamilton after his last stop. Maybe JB isn't such a bad driver after all, he qualified ahead of Hamilton even with a 5 place penalty even when the car wasn't the best and this weekend showed as did Spa that Hamilton can't drive around all car set up problems either.

@Jayru take off those rose tinted Hamilton fanboy glasses for 1 second. Button was alongside Alonso gong into turn 1 before Alonso & Raikkonen collided, so Jenson would have won the corner that's two places with the crash.

Look at Hamiltons start, he got passed by Massa going into turn 1.

I don't understand what your point it? To me it jsut sounds like another Hamilton fanboy degrading another driver/team mate because he was a BETTER driver at the weekend... it's very sad, just... let it go!

Am not a fan of Lewis, am not English

But Lewis finished 5th it didnt say Lewis finish 5th and 21 seconds behind 4th place, fantastic job to overcome the bad set up, I could remember Button in the same situation in canada (I believe he got lapped)


The last time Lewis got a 5 grid penalty he still got on the podium

@Jayru it doesn't matter if you're English or not, that's a stupid excuse not to be a fan. I'm Scottish but I'm a fan of Raikkonen.

In Canada JB had the wrong suspension set up which was DESTROYING the rear tires, he did not have understeer. Go look up the facts.

He still finished 21 seconds off his team mate, which was 17 seconds in the last stint. If you go read the interviews Button didn't have the perfect set up, he also had small car trouble during the race.

That is nothing to compare it to, different situations at different tracks. Jenson still started ahead of Hamilton with the penalty. He was the BETTER DRIVER THIS WEEKEND.

Maybe in Korea Hamilton should copy Button's set up.

@Jayru he did pass Button but that was in the pits when Button & Kobayshi were held up by Ricciardo. While Hamilton was passed by Massa on the track. They were both different situations, so there is another invalid point you've made!
