@bunch of zeds I'm glad there's finally someone else on this forum who is a bit more realistic about Kovalainen's talents or lack thereof. He won this race only because Hamilton had a puncture and Massa had an engine failure. Hamilton won 5 races that year in the same car and another 2 the following year when they were still teammates to Heikki's 0. Nuff said.
