Quote from spankmeyer :Webber's wheelie after off-roading was kinda nuts.

EDIT: More sirious tone. Can F1 flip over from that? Bumbing tyres can launch a car but could it flip in its own from too much air under floor like the touring car flipouts?

Was too early in the straight to get enough speed/air under the car and causing it to flip IMO. Was pretty epic though, tough car to continue so well after that.

Grats to Rosberg, solid win.

Wonder what really happened with Perez.
#78 - aoun
Quote from Hahmo :Well done for Rosberg.. ..not even starting on kimi

Nothing to start on, his tyres hit the limit. Vettels did right at the end too. Poor strategy. What more to say other than gibberish?

Amazing from Rosberg.
The top10 is soo close this season! Need perfect tactics and qualifying to even get close to winning a race.

Maybe it's Kimi's turn win the next race? Or Hamilton
MErcedes made an amazing race with Nico but Schumi was very unlucky
I liked what i saw today very much.
I facepalmed so hard on Raikkonen. Very impressed with Hamilton. Too bad for Michael, but Nico kinda made up for it. Also impressed by good DRS balance and how it gave us this amazing racing train.
Fantastic race, action packed stuff.

Great job by Rosberg. McLaren very consistent again.

Lewis driving very sensibly this season, seems to have his head screwed on right.
Sweet close action, despite DRS some good "classic racing" and the DRS being useful for letting faster cars pass slower cars, some drama, airborne and wheel to wheel action right till the last lap! Now this is finally F1 again!

Congrats to Rosberg!
Quote from Töki (HUN) :Hamilton waving, how very surprising... :rolleyes:

He moved from the racing line once, and then back to it. What's your problem with him? It's so ****ing annoying Töki, you can't give the guy credit for a good drive, all you do here is bash Hamilton for anything you can scrounge.
Quote from Töki (HUN) :Damn, poor Button... It was good to see him pwning Hamilton so far.

01 Lewis Hamilton 45
02 Jenson Button 43
03 Fernando Alonso 37
04 Mark Webber 36
05 Sebastian Vettel 28
06 Nico Rosberg 25
07 Sergio Perez 22
08 Kimi Räikkönen 16
09 Bruno Senna 14
10 Kamui Kobayashi 9

You can see Hamilton is far more cautious this year. Slow and steady wins the race... if it is a bit boring
A 2-stop strategy and they have him in for his 2nd stop halfway through the race, the ****... ?

Williams did the same and it worked

Anyway, that was probably the most enyoable f1-race I have seen in the last 5 years. Top 10 are so close together, keep the races comming.
Grats to Rosberg, well done.
Sad to see Schumi out again, would have loved to see him on the podium ...

I missed Webber doing his "wheelie", any vids out there of this?

Anyway, exciting race, great season.
Can't wait for the next race, next weekend!!!
Thx for the link!

It was a bit of a radical way to try to stall the front wing.

I bet he had a flashback of Le Mans 2000 at that very moment.

Yeah, just like he did in Valencia
Webber has a thing for making cars leave the ground.
Quote from Intrepid :01 Lewis Hamilton 45

That's very nice but you forgot that Button's race was ruined in Malaysia and finished 14th... Button was clearly faster in Australia and in China as well. 2 points difference with 2 ruined races out of 3, is really not bad.

Button drove into karthikeyan. No one else's fault but his own. In China Button definitely lost the win but that's just how it goes. Not to mention how bad Button's quali effort was compared to Lewis.

And calling 2nd place finish a ruined race is hardly correct either.

You're comments are that of a christian in denial. It's like admitting Hamilton has talent goes against everything you believe in. (Probably white>superior race).

Button drove into Narain. In effect he did 'a Hamilton'. Taking a risk when he didn't have to.

Lewis is much more risk averse this year, and has stated his intent. No risks.. bring it home. Don't overwork the car...just bring it home in one piece. And that approach HAS worked over the first 3 races. He leads the championship.FACT

Of course it can. What would prevent it from doing so?
