my comments for the canadian GP

1. Hami rear ends kimi - i think kimi got a taste of his own medicine. Karma you can say. Though very unfortunate for Kimi. But watch out for the ice cold Finn in the coming races. I am sure he will drive like a man possessed.

2. BMW 1-2 - Nice. cheers: When was the last time they had a 1-2? Was it in 2003 with Montoya and Ralf

3 DC on podium - seems like age doesnt catch up with DC

4. Sutil Brake burns -

Am getting tired of seeing Hamilton keep screwing up...I m sure McLaren is too... But they don't have a choice now.

Hungary last year, where thanks to him Alonso lost pole, then China and then Brazil. And now somewhere at the start this year, then Monaco and now here. He was just lucky at Monaco.

Raikkonnen says what Hamilton did was stupid. Well, he's no less. Dricing like a mad man with a flat spot when he was about to win, rear ending someine in the rains when in the lead 2 years ago, and then Monaco.

Now that Hamilton will be docked 10 places, I think Raikkonnen's got this championship in the bag too, since it will be hard for McLaren to challenge Ferrari for most races from now.

I would choose a quick driver who has a tendency to screw-up on a off to an average but controlled driver any day.
Hamilton is still in the learning phase, and has committed some rookie mistakes at times. But how come no one points fingers to Sutil, Vettel or Heikki when they commit mistakes and jump on the hamilton bashing bandwagon whenever he comits the smallest of mistakes.

Admittedly his error at China and Brazil cost him the title, and the Canada fiasco was a rude awakening, but there have been instances of experienced drivers being caught out by the pit lane exit lights, notably Montoya, Fisi and Massa.

To say that Kimi has the championship in the bag is not the best of assessments, given McLarens form in Monaco and Canada. They are a lot closer to the Ferraries this year even on tracks which suit Ferrari. France and Silverstone, have been traditionally Ferrari territory, but dont count the Silver Arrows out yet.

gues, hamilton wasn't wholly to blame cos out of the race pit, the drivers do generally, do make some adjustment to their belts, seatin position.. n one does drive in 'cruise mode'... and signals at the end the cock pit ll b the last thing that crosses your mind. but he shud hav seen two stationary cars in front of him.. but turning the car away from BMW right in front of n hitting straight at the ferrari is quite a thing

Pole at last for Kimi. He needs more of these to get off to better starts. Alonso in all probability is running light. DC looks all fired up after a podium finish in the last round. Looking out for a storm-through-the-field drive from Hamilton.

Hamilton will most probably be on a 3 stop strategy running a super light fuel load all through the race.
