Yes, drainage doesn't seem great on the track does it? Speaking about not being great, what the hell was PDR doing being out-qualified in his home Grand Prix? and as for Jenson.........

Oooops! I did it again! That was the first thing that came into my head seeing Maldonaldo taking out Perez.

Surely this time it was not an accident. 2 races 2 crashes. Each time taking out another car.
Someone has to tell him he's not alone on the circut. A high penalty should also be paid, so that he thinks twice before causing damage.

Post-race fines for Maldonado and Kobayashi 08 Jul 2012

Williams’ Pastor Maldonado and Sauber’s Kamui Kobayashi both picked up post-race fines from the British Grand Prix stewards thanks to driving indiscretions during Sunday’s Silverstone race.

Maldonado was adjudged to have caused his collision with Sergio Perez, which led to the Sauber driver’s retirement, and due to the seriousness of the incident received a double penalty in the form of a reprimand and a 25,000 euro fine.

Kobayashi overshot his pit box during a stop, knocking over three Sauber mechanics. Thankfully none was seriously injured, but stewards fined the Japanese driver 10,000 euro for ‘a very dangerous manoeuvre which had potentially serious implications’.

Maldonado finished the race 16th, while Kobayashi was 11th.


Justice is done.

I was unable to attend the race this year due to other commitments. What with the weather, PDR's first lap elimination, McLaren's inability to keep pace with just about every team and wasting Lewis' talent, and Button's inability to drive, that was money well saved .

Always wanted to attend the British GP ever since Mansell was racing, attended Spa Francochamps back in 1992, Mansell and Patrese came in 2nd and 3rd. Schumacher got his first GP victory in a Jordan. Mansell was already the champion, so was no need to fight.
Williams ruled the race circuts back then and for a few years to come after too.


Was the only race I could afford.

The sound, the feeling can't be found sat in front of the telly. The coverage on the telly is better but if only they could fit the atmosphere into the screen.

Ahh the glory days of Sir Nigel of Mansell

Was there at Brands Hatch for his first win in 1985 and saw many others, in Britain and Europe - Portugal 86 giving perhaps the most satisfaction as all the Portugese were (understandably) Ayrton Senna fans. Ayrton came out top in qualifying - a brilliant lap in his Lotus - but race day belonged to the Englishman. Waving a lone Union Jack amongst a sea of Senna fans gave a great deal of satisfaction, and we left the circuit with the Championship almost as good as won. A hiccup in Mexico put the champagne on hold, but then came lap 63 at Adelaide....

I think Grosjean lernt his driving in Paris.

1 race fine is ok I think, but there were some lucky drivers out there yesterday.

Has anybody heard if Schumacher is to be penalized for his blocking Vettel, then shooting off into the pits crossing Vettel's line? I think Schumacher would have killed somebody if they had done that to him a few years ago. I still remember the comments about him and D.Hill. How reckless Hill was, cutting his line and causing an accident.

It looks like Schumacher (somehow) got away with it... Crazy manoeuvre...... I could not believe Vettel didn't make more of it - I do not think he would have been so conciliatory if it was Lewis pulling that move.

I think apart from Grosjean's ban, the only action the stewards took was to demote Maldonado 10 places at Monza - 5 for the jump start and 5 for the incident with Glock.

They said in the commentary yesterday that Maldanado has not even scored a point since his race win. Incredible. With a mature driver on board imagine how many points Williams would have had by now.

Singapore at night - what an incredible backdrop for a Formula One Grand Prix

Great pole for Lewis - just hope he didn't damage the car when he scrapped the wall at the end of qualifying

Terrible news today, Schumacher's contract with Mercedes has not been renewed. But Lewis Hamilton is to drive for Mercedes next year!!!!

Not sure if I can support a German team.

I can't quite believe Lewis has actually made the decision to go. Mercedes need a designer who knows what he's doing or all the money in the world will not help - Toyota, Honda and BMW anyone?

Lewis may just have made a disastrous mistake of Emerson Fittipaldi proportions

Hope I'm wrong.....

Japanese Grand Prix today - hussah!

Sadly it looks like its going to be Vettel's championship again - hurrooo

Alonso deserves to win it imo - he has driven superbly all season.
