Button and/or Hamilton must get past Kobayashi if we're to get a race today

Well, Grosjean was at fault with Webber... and imo, as a Ferrari fan, it was Alonso's own fault :( :( he cuts in front of Kimi


Alonso was well ahead of Kimi already, he barely moved, and could not see him. was just an unfortunate racing incident. Was always the risk when your car is too slow to qualify at the front.

I'm surprised by Massa being able to stick with Koba and Jenson.

Hopefully Kimi will get banned for pushing Alonso who was ahead out and pushing Perez who was alongside off. Idiot!

:confused: Alonso was the one who should have left space. Remember Monza?? Alonso deserves a gridpenalty for the next race

Someone needs to get Grosjean off that Lotus seat. The number of races he has ruined this year is astounding.

Yeah I was going to say the say the same thing. How can the setup be so so wrong? Surely it's an inherently faster car in the first place?! Wasn't it the same last season as well?

Amen to that. Black flag him. This was COMPLETELY unnecessary.

Btw: Schumacher lost telemetry......... the **** Mercedes.

Just when I thought that every possible failure already happened on Schumi's car, the telemetry decided to adds itself to the long list. I've never been a fan of Hammy (I admire his driving skill however), but I gotta feel sorry for him. His chances of winning races (let alone championships) are close to 0 I'm afraid.

Where Maldonado and every other pilots get just a drive through, Grosjean get a 10s stop & go
there's really something wrong with FIA and penalty system

the only difference I see is Grosjean racing on the front and not midfield...

Winters can be long, no need to write off 2013 although the prospects don't look too good.

But yes you're right, this WCC campaign of Merc is a fuckup.

Alonso was ahead. Perez was alongside. Kimi left no space.

Then, I agree.
I am just too used to seeing people taking the driver out of the equation of setting up the car, unless it's perfect. Sorry 'bout that.

After seeing the replay from Hamilton and Massa's car, I think Kimi deserves a drive through penalty. Was clearly behind and clipped Alonso.

Hamilton's best chance of good points is managing the tyres.

unless Vettel has a mistake or can't manage tyres or something he will stroll easily to the win now.
