Feels happy to see Schumi waving his hand after winning the third consecutive time this season and feels even more happy not to see alonso waving his hand once again (I dont like his over excited actions after every win as if he is the only one who knows to drive). Well he is brought down to earth by schumi. Congrats!

Kimi is a good fighter and he managed a good 3rd position. Though I would have liked it better to see him win from a championship point of view it is good for MS to be on top.

Massa is also proving to be a good partner.

I heard the commentators on Star Sport saying that Renault's performance drop could be due to the removal of the dampers which have been under FIA scrutiny. But the following link does not say that the dampers were actually banned for this season.... anyone know more about this?

http://www.grandprix.com/ns/ns17213.html

As for the race, this has surely made things tighter... good for Kimi, he might've atleast split the ferrari's but for that first pit stop drama! But then there is always a what if! :(

I don't understand Fisi... Weber overtook that guy like as if he was a back marker! Don't understand Renault's decision to go on with him next year...

great drive by schumi, massa did prove to worthy of being in a scarlet car.
bad luck for webber though!!
loved the way the guy on radio spoke about the championship being their hands now after the race. that was exhibits the confidence ferrari has in schumi.
people whats the differnce in the constructors' championship now?

I think the past few wins have more to do with Bridgestone tyres than Ferrari. And, I see the Ferrari 1,2 finish continuing if Michelin doesn't get it's act together.

Makes you wonder if Michelin has given up because this will be their last F1 season. Bridgestone will be the sole tyre supplier next year.

I heard the TV commentator mention that Renault had left the used race tyres out in plain view of the cameras as if to send a message to Michelin! Sore losers!! They have been blaming Michelin's tyre graining problem for the past few losses.

If that is the case, how come Kimi, who is on the same Michelins plus hyraulic problems and a screwed up 1st pit stop and a 3 stop strategy, still managed to end up on the podium?

Go Kimi!!!

Loved the way Kimi overtook Webber when exiting the pits and "muscled past" Button later on. He is a great driver for sure.
His pit crew is so screwed up. Anyway great drive by both the Schumachers.
Especially Ralf, who unlapped himself in the last few laps and came 9th.
3 cheers for Button.

Exclamation Midland cars disqualified !!!

http://www.formula1.com/race/news/4730/762.html
Both Midland cars were disqualified from the German GP for running with flexible rear wings, which are a big no-no by the FIA.

Default Race Predictions : Hungarian GP

Jacques Villneuve is unfortunately going to miss the race at Budapest after his crash at Hungaroring last Sunday. BMW test driver Robert Kubica is set to replace him this weekend. I think its awesome that Kubica is finally gonna get a chance to show his skills. People in the F1 paddock rate him extremely high; lests see if he can live upto the expectations.
As for the race, after last weeks debacle, I expect Kimi and McLaren to win this one. But because of the nature of the circuit, its going to be a 3-horse race from start to finish. Infact, even Honda and Toyota have a good chance of performing well on this circuit.
My predictions:
1. Kimi (marginally)
2. Fonsi (for some reason, he is always very fast on this track, but just not fast enuff)
3. Schumi (on a surge right now, but I dont really expect more than a podium; unless Ferrari really turn it on)
Look out for Button, Barrichello and Trulli.

Well seeing to the form that Mr Schumacher is in right now it would be slightly silly to bet against him... but this IS F1 and stranger things have happened.
So here are my 3.
1. MS
2. KR
3. FM(for those that dont know.. thats Massa)
As for Button... seems that the KIMI GREMLIN's crept into him too... can never to finish properly inspite of having a good starting position..

I would say Schumi, Alonso and Massa- If Kimis luck holds up, he could displace any of the three

With the combination that MS has right now - a fast reliable car and supercharged motivation - he would be my pick.
