Red light is supposed to be seen by the driver. The team will let him go from the pit stopping area. Just before the pit exit, there are lights. The red stop light was ON. He was supposed to stop at the exit till the light turns green. He should've seen it. He ignored it. Banned.

KIMI KIMI KIMI !! Almost vice-versa of what happened in the last race when Kimi blew it and Alonso took the podium.

This was to me the most enjoyable race of the season so far...
9 cars not finishing....and barricelo with a backup car starting from the pits...
ends up in third place...quite hilarious...i guess he gained 45 secs due to the SC...
And montoya desevered the black flag....it is not nice see another driver (DC) being bullied like that...

it sure is sad to watch a star fade....MS is not in his best/struggling...
and it is for everyone to see....just like sachin tendulkar...
A year ago, he would have smoked alonso (san mario) and kimi (montreal) from similar positions...

Problem is more with the car and tyres than MS. Even today, he can smoke them from similar positions with more competitive car.

The races are getting better and better. Well the rules did make a huge difference. I'm sure people are actually enjoying this, because it is not clear who is the dominant one.

The only change i'd like to see now is the qualifying format... i still feel it sucks.. The old format of 60 minutes, 12 laps per driver was amazing..

@Montoya: It is the driver who has to notice the red light at the pitlane. The team's job is to turn around the car as quickly as possible. JPM was a bit ignorant about the redlights and McLaren missed out on a 1-2 finish. Montoya doesn't seem to have the luck in the McLaren camp.

The famous wall claimed many victims including Alonso and Button who again succumbed under Schumi pressure.
If my memory serves me right, JB kissed the wall coming through the final corner, just before the start finish line. It was only Alonso and NK who touched the famous wall.

You should've seen Flavio's reactions when Alonso went out.
Poor Trulli, he had a good race too. Bad that he didn't get the podium or the finish.

HAHAHA....loved to see Briatore's reaction after what he did at Nurburgring. So things are even now. What a season!!

Damn it!! Montoya just lost a winning race. The disqualification was way too harsh, IMO, considering that a certain schumacher was let scot free at Monaco for crossing the yeallow line.

But a MClaren won and i am sure Montoya will get his chance again...at Indy. As i had mentioned in another thread, Mclaren will fare better at Indy no matter what the result at Montreal.

Must have been a huge relief for Ferrari. But i wouldn't get too excited 'cos they set amazing pace at Imola (which is very similar to Montreal in its stop-and-go nature) and continued to struggle from there on.

BAR, well what can we say. The pole (by running light) must have been an attempt to silence the press who were pounding on them for their lack of pace (and points).

I was heavily surprised by Williams' lack of performance all weekend. And webber continued to make a jackass of himself. I am sure the result would not have done anything to improve the Williams and BMW relationship.

What the hell is NK upto nowadays? He has been outpaced and outfinished by his team-mate for 3 races now. For some reason, i think, he is not able to concentrate as much as he did in the first few races. Unless he can raise his game in the second part of the season, his future in F1 looks bleak and short.

Why do you say that, its his way of expressing his joy, whether anybody likes it or not. Nothing wrong in it. Just because you are Kimi's fan you can't say others should not celebrate their victory.

under a yellow flag u cant even overtake a backmarker
in the past.. other drivers have driven through the pit-lane when the light was red.. but havent been black flagged
( the standard penalty is a 10 second stop-go )

Juan Pablo Montoya came to Canada knowing that he was already in the FIA’s bad books for what the governing body deemded a dangerous move during practice in Monaco - yet he left under the shadow of a black flag.

The FIA has made it clear that it intends to crack down hard on what it regards as being dangerous driving. Montoya was sent to the back of the grid in Monaco after the stewards decided that he had 'brake tested' Ralf Schumacher (slowing unexpectedly in front of him) during practice - causing an accident between Ralf, Coulthard and Villeneuve. Montoya strenuously denied responsibility for the crash, but both he and the McLaren team knew that any further transgressions would be dealt with severely.

i dont agree at all..
imola is a the 2nd most difficult track to overtake on after monaco..
a younger shumi wud have probably made a desperate move to overtake alonso and ended up taking both of them out

ferrari's didnt have the pace to match the mclarens at montreal..
simple as that
comparing their respective fastest laps.. MS was 0.5sec slower than kimi ( he was also on a 3-stopper.. kimi was on a 2-stopper )

so now u realise.. a driver is only as quick as the car that his team provide him
