    What an amazing formula one race today. I've never seen such a thriller! Finnish Flash Kimi won while that UK-brat (hamilton) faltered under pressure. This is the reason Formula One is greatest sport ever, and so popular.

    WOHOO!

    I'm not a student of F1, but how did Kimi perform in his first year? anywhere near as good as Hamilton, I seriously doubt it! but I don't actually know, so you tell me.

    Hamilton's performance today was disgraceful....he went from 3rd to 8th to 18th in the first two laps....unless he slowed down on purpose, he was crap IMHO

    kimi's first year was in a Sauber, hamilton was in a mcclaren. Kimi had not raced in the GP2 series while hamilton did.

    Hamilton is one for the future and did well in his first season

    I thought that for years, but one season (and watched it for a couple of seasons) I really got into it, once you get into the tactics of fuel, tyres and pit stops etc it is much more interesting than it first appears. However I slipped away from it and yesterday's race was the first watched in about 3 years. If you didn't like yesterday's race than I guess it's not for you as I thought Hamilton's plight of having to get from 18th to 5th added a new dimension to the race that was good to watch him try for while.

    Don't you think that's a bit harsh? Granted the first incident was his error, but don't we all make errors, perhaps we might make a few more when a world championship is at stake. The second incident was a gearbox problem which was totally out of his control, if it hadn't happened I thnk he would have got that 5th place from being 8th after the first incident. I think you should judge him by his season rather than just one race, afterall if his team had engaged their brains in china he would have completed that race and picked up enough points to ensure that Raikonen was out of the running as far as the WC was concerned.

    What's wrong with watching paint dry?

    I agree though, but for me it's like being on the Freeway when everyone is running late for work in the mornings.
