I hate Star Sports. For the first time this season, Ferrari are on the podium & they don't show the post race interview live They're showing some stupid club football instead.

Feel sorry for Kimi. I don't know why he has such rotten luck. He had a good chance of vaulting ahead of RB in the last pitstop but the slow tyre change meant that he had to be content with 3rd place.

I was just hoping that somehow, Fisichella would manage to finish in the points.
Rest of the race went as I had expected. The Button - Brawn combo is unbeatable at the moment.

me too. But, Fisichella deserves a pat on the back. He drove pretty consistently today. If he would have pushed a little bit more, he would have secured the first point for Force India. I particularly liked it when he managed to overtake Alonso. BTW, what's up with Hamilton now a days? I am wondering.

And I hated it. My cablewallah messed up something with that channel only. There were RGB bands dancing across the screen for long time. Star sports was crystal clear but they were not showing the race today.

Bad shunt yesterday forced him out of qualification and he had to change the gearbox, so he started last. A strategy that didn't work and a track on which overtaking is difficult - no chance of a good finish.
It's Brawn GP's year. They're going to win.

Makes no difference as ESPN & Star Sports belong to the same people. Today's race was shown on ESPN because Star Sports was showing French Open Live. In fact their website is espnstar.com. It's the same old idiotic Steve Slater, Paula & Steve Dawson. Feel like throwing up on their faces....Alex Yoong is ok but he always plays 2nd fiddle to Steve Slater ( I think anyone paired with Steve would be 2nd fiddle)

You were sold a dummy by Steve slater there. He has absolutely no idea about whats going on in the race. What you saw was Sutil who was a lap down going past Alonso who just exited the pits.

I know that, but they are two different channels still. From your post, I thought you were looking for the post race press conference in STAR sports....
