This has been one of the hardest Grand Prix summaries I’ve ever had to write. And it was one of the most boring Grand Prix to boot! Originally this post was twice as long, half of it being about the whole Hamilton vs Alonso qualifying saga. I decided to strip that out and save it for another post.. So here are the other points regarding the race:
Lewis Hamilton – He’s in the bad books at the moment for disobeying his team during qualifying. The one single positive thing I’ll give Lewis is that he did seem somewhat remorseful in the press conference after the race. Otherwise it was just standard procedure – make no mistakes in the fastest car.
Kimi Raikkonen – Thankfully his car didn’t break!! He certainly had the speed in the race but Ferrari were shocking in qualifying. Some nice aggressive driving too.
Nick Heidfeld – Another solid job from quick Nick. Wish he’d shave that friggin beard off though..
Fernando Alonso – Was driving a fantastic race until he met Ralf Schumacher. Very cautious off the start though, but can be forgiven considering his race was screwed right from the start. Some points are better than none I guess.
Felipe Massa – OMG.. I get railed when I make bad comments about Felipe but I just wonder what his supporters are thinking now? He really needs to take a leaf out of Lewis Hamilton’s book and learn what consistency is.
Honda – I think they should just pack their bags up, work their arses off, and come back next year ready to get back in the points.. or at least the top 10.
Damon Hill commentating – Thanks ITV.. I’ve never seen the movie Dumb and Dumber but now I know what the audio from it sounds like. It’s so funny when this guy makes an analogy.. if only I had jotted some down or had transcripts..
