That was a great race.  The ending was a good laugh.  I don't "have a team, or driver".  But I enjoyed the hell out of it.  :)

I can imagine Sh!te hitting the red button multiple times on his remote now... only to find out it's hit "off" button to the Tv


Also had a good laugh as one of the renaults went off, thinking someone would just say "we can do without that ugly one"


Great race actually, first time in years i've watched for the complete distance, thanks for the linky Jarkko, yer a lifesaver m8ey!

Entertaining race for sure. Really a shame about the Vettel - Kubica incident, both deserved a podium finish.

I'm not sure what to think of the big difference in tyre compounds. The middle of the race appears to suffer under those who haven't run on softs yet being completely filled up to wait as long as possible with changing tyres. It does bring some excitement to the end though, if they manage to stay out of each other's sidepods.  :tut:

I can not think of a better way of starting off the season. Brawn GP should have a very bright future.

Also, the passing did seem quiet a bit easier. People were passing left and right, and there was alot less of a struggle when they were nose to tail. I think the new regulations have worked-but lets see in the next few races how it all happens to work out.


Also, we didn't need that ugly car.

what a fantastic race for Brawn gp a 1 2 for the team in there first outing and 4 weeks ago they thought they had no job
Vettel - Kubica none of them was going to give them any room
but i cant see Brawn GP staying at the front i can the other teams emproving alot not straight away but it was nice to see other teams battling for the lead

And thus it begins..  :tut: Vettel has been given a 10 place grid penalty for next week, for causing an avoidable collision. Like you can do anything when braking on worn tires and bumps outside of the racing line.

I do understand Trulli's 25 second penalty though, he apparently went off track during the safety car and retook his position.

Vettel showed a lot of maturity today, right up until he threw it away in the closing stages.  But there can be no doubt that he is a hot property, as is the Red Bull Ferrari, which like the Brawn Mercedes, overshadowed the factory team today.  However, he will struggle to overcome the 10-place grid penalty he has received for the next race.

Isn't it Red Bull Racing Renault? lol Sorry to point that out Dave in your nice post. :)

Indeed it is Rockstar... seems I don't know a Red Bull from a... er... Toro Rossa  :rotfl:  In which case, the works Renault team also suffered the same fate as both McLaren, and Ferrari.  Crazy stuff!

well, heres what i saw:

The Brawn cars will be a power house early this season, i hope they have the funding to keep pushing the development to have a chance in the end of the season. The McLarens (at least Hamilton's) were way off pace but through good strategy and some luck had a good results. Williams still has no clue about this strategy thing as proved with Rosberg today, it's too bad for him the team doesn't get it. Toyota is very good this year, but they should be by now. Pique Jr. proved again that he doesn't belong in Formula 1. he should finally be gone soon. Kubica and Vettle proved they are both future front runners, the new youth of F1, it's a shame their races ended like that. It wasn't all Vettles fault, Kubica did force him on to the inside curb.

all that said, it should be a great year.

PS. Kers is retarded!!!

I think Kers is great.. especially the fact that only some use it. Give plenty more action for sure.

I couldn't agree more! A fine addition, making for additional strategy, particularly at tracks like Monza, where you may see 2 lead changes per lap, as drivers initiate KERS at different points on the track.

They way I saw it about KERS was that the teams who didn't have it didn't need it and the teams who did have it did need it.  :rotfl:
And I don't this is a coincidence either, but of course not everyone was like this.

It was a good race overall I must say,considering the the car design leaves me a little cold. It looks more like a pikes peak hill climbing mobile anyway its great to see a team like Brawn with his knowledge of the game and now Branson on board they will be a force to be reconed with. But these new cars dont look easy to drive in fact the look a little unstable so I think there will be lots of tweaking going on throughout the season. I thought this season was supposed to be a more equal playing feild to make it more economical for car owners etc. but they are constantly changing car specs and design every season making teams spend more money in these hard economical times we are in.Thats F1 in a nutshell the cream of the racing industry its the Gucci of motor racing. For what its worth everyone should have KERS or none of them ,equality or unfare advantage my opinion only. But I think in the end the drivers will make the difference they always do thats why we like F1 its not just the cars and the owners, the drivers make them go around. It should be a very good season and interesting.

Looks like Hamilton could be facing some sort of penalty.. because he directly lied in the hearing of the Trullis pass... He said that team didnt tell him to let Trulli by, and he was slow at that time because he was concentrated in the information on his display.. lol stupid twat.
The radio traffic is public and the investigators found out team ordered very clearly Hamilton to let Trulli by.. so complete opposite of what he said in the hearing.. why try to hide the truth in the first place? Only to get penalty to someone.. It should bite him back properly.. DQ thank you.
