he didn't lost anything despite the mistake..5th the best possible...A+ for finishing that car into that position(points are given on sunday in case you forgot)
unlike someone who lost his position 1 at the first corner and the race...
Lewis lost a position at the the start due to a clutch problem after the team told him to change settings despite feeling comfortable with his first getaway.
maldo didn't give him the room...
Maldonado gave him plenty of room, he chose to try and defend by going out on the marbles and paid the price which ultimately cost him several positions when he couldn't get past Maldonado at the end.
if anything last stint showed,then it is that william had the edge and both lotus underperformed during first half of the race..A+ for keeping 2nd place..
Don't quite know who you worked that out, Alonso lost grip in his tyres trying to overtake Pastor who he was all over the back of, and the Lotus strategy of pitting Kimi far too late meant Alonso was never in any real danger and Kimi was unlikely to pass had he gotten close.
won't argue with such dumb statement....A+ for covering hamilton
Yes but instead of merely beating a slower McLaren and getting a podium, he could have won the race,
yes,he made the mistake...yet he showed better judgement with letting other passed and damage limitation unlike someone in valencia who lost his podium to his ego....A+ for composed driving under pressure..
you have to be there to utilize other's misfortune....brilliant drive through the middle of the grid..ballsy overtaking..true grit..A++
you missed malaysia,where there was again a A++ drive...lewis couldn't go fast even with open field...and he is called rain-master...
I'm glad you could acknowledge he made a mistake
No he lost his podium because a car chose to come off track and drive into the side of him, whether out of stupidity or rage, and anyway if he had seceded the place he wouldn't have had the podium either way
Malaysia was a good drive, and in the final stint Lewis was lapping at the same pace as Alonso so it would have been interesting to see if Alonso would have been able to overtake Lewis on track instead of through a McLaren pit stop error, but more important the race pace came down to who got heat in their tyres and was not based on driver or car performance.
everybody know what kind of car ferrari started the season with...
i consider not only button,but lewis too under-performing that macca..in the race particularly....no way such a car which won the opening race with royal ways can lose it's edge..
Also for those wondering why I listed strategy mistakes as errors well:
The problem is no one knows, Massa isn't a reliable benchmark, and the field is so close its hard to apply the normal definition of a bad car, what we can say is that you don't have a chance of getting in to Q3 and a fifth place finish in Aus if your car is shit without their being multiple retirements up front.
The point I was trying to make is that their performance has been roughly equal, Alonso hasn't been that great in Qualifying but Lewis has been ultra consistent, Alonso has had some great races, with a suspect car for some parts of the season whereas Lewis has been the victim of a farcical amount of team errors. I don't think Lewis has underperformed and where he put that car in Valencia I thought would have been enough to prove that.
