Well axually I would do the same. Michael was celebrating his victory and all cameras were on him. I wouldnt stand besides him when I am having trouble smiling after coming in second.

And he did shake hands with michael later on. the guy couldnt even smile after losing his lead.

secondly he always accuses others for his defeat,the fact that his tyres were worn and not Fisichella's was his own fault,but i am sure he will blame the team for it.

and the story goes on.........

Michael is the best and surely it was one of the best driving from the legend.

It is partially true to say that Alonso didnt get support. the tyre change was a big goofup

Meanwhile, Sato has been disqualified and Albers handed a 25 second time penalty. Somewhere out there, Nick Heidfeld is plotting revenge.

wah,very interesting......

yesterday it rains when michael has poor tyres for the wet,he does an excellent job to get to P6,

today again he drives brilliantly to keep pace with the Michellien runners in the start few laps,and does great overtaking,and people come on and say he was very lucky.

in the first place fonso was very lucky that there was rain in China for the race,otherwise he would not have a chance anyway(dont tell me his dry times because as Michael put it,he was cruising with revs down).

Lucky michael was,but because of his great driving not because of stupid fonso who destroyed his front tyres when everyone else on the same rubber
did not.whose fault is that,maybe for fonso fans it was GOD's fault.

if people cannot see how brilliantly michael drove today they never will see it,because they just hate him above everything else.

woah, woah, woah... take it easy there buddy. no need to get so hyper. Michael drove well, no doubts.. and I also accept the fact that in the end he was cruisin to theline (any1 who has seen Schuni over the years knows that)... but it was his good luck that he was thrown into that position by the factors mentioned above. Alonso's tyres, his teams fault.. as for Alonso not having a chance in the dry, who the hell won last years GP ???

It was an amazing race, especially Schumi and Alonso were awesome and Kimi's start was stunning. Schumacher did a great job even in yesterday's qualifying when all other bridgestones runners were struggling badly. Once again he proved why he is called the rain master! Also Alonso was amazing to fight back for 2nd position after all the drama.
Can't wait till next week to watch Japanese GP.

i am very easy dude.and why are we going to last year,were they using last years tyres and cars.

and alonso's tyres is teams fault?how come isnt the driver supposed to look after his tyres or should a team send a tyre specialist along with him.

they decided to change fonso's tyres with his consultation(read the interviews),so it was basically a bad decision of Fonso and his team and not his bad luck or teams mistake.

in fact it was very good luck for fonso that he was gifted the P2 by the faithful Fisichella with the wicked Flavio masterminding it all.

Think about it.......How come Alonsos left tyre was totally worn out while Fisi (and Michaels) wernt? Why did he require a tyre change while the other top players didnt? The difference between a great driver and a good driver is not only to drive fast, but also being strategic toward other factors. For e.g. tyre preservation.

Also, Michael did not really push the car except for when he was overtaking Fisi (second pitstops). Alonso was pushing the car very hard in the start, and toward the end, so will have to take a lot of care in Suzuka.

This is what James Allen had to say after the race:

Quote:
I have asked around about this since the race and it seems that he took more out of the intermediates in the opening stages of the race than did, say Fisichella and Schumacher.

Alonso has a more violent turn-in style than them and as he pushed super hard to open up a lead in the first 20 laps, it seems that perhaps he wore them out.

Suzuka is a typical Michael Schumacher track. He has now won 7 races in a row!! Sign of things to come?

Wow this is good!!! So a scorcher of a race by Schumi is being termed as pure luck!!! Grow up people....
Fonsi's tyre debacle: HIS and ONLY HIS fault (no bad luck)... I think only this example is sufficient to show how good a driver Schumi really is... He not only knows the limits of the car, but also knows when and most importantly HOW to exploit them... No wonder in doing the same no. of laps, his tyres held good, but fonsi's gave away...
Secondly, a "world champion" like fonsi isnt even sure what kind of grip the track is providing to his car!!!!???? Otherwise how can one explain that he changed only his fronts and not the rears.....
As for his team.... least said the better... these hypocrites...

Thumbs up Race prediction - Japan Suzuka 06

With Schumacher and Alonso equal on championship points and with just two races to go, can the season get any more hotter? And to make things even more interesting the weather forecast says that it is going to rain at suzuka till friday, so we can expect another wet weather race, if it rains on the weekend again. So guys what are your predictions for the big race.

What an amazing race!! Fantastic drive by Michael. Qualifying in 6th, that was some kind of miracle that he managed to get to it and starting the race with the tyres which were nowhere near the Michelins. Fisi gifted his 2nd place to Fonso.
Sad for him.
Coming to Fonso saga, he is a cry baby. He is supposed to be blamed for not looking out for his tyres. Driving the car himself, he is in a position to know what is the right tyre choice for him. Flavio is not going to suggest Fonso that " Arre Fonso yeh lele ... accha chalega" Absolute Loser Champ or Chimp rather.

Schumi is the best! and Ferrari team + schumi makes it a good team work to pull things off. Every aspect of race should be monitored by the driver and not blame the team like Alonso.

Kimi was good initially. Again his McLaren is not going well with him. Next season Kimi + ferrari should be a good combination...
