Once again it's poor reliablility that has robbed McLaren of a 1 - 2 finish with poor JPM at the wrong end of the stick this time. Kimi Raikkonen was as brilliant as he has been all season. McLaren pit strategy was immaculate too. Michael Schumacher did extremely well to finish in second place with a car that's clearly not too good.
Tough luck for the Red Bulls - both cars didn't even complete the first lap for no fault of their own. Alonso finishing outside the points means that his lead has been cut by 10 points and that's good for the championship.

Would anyone like to congratulate the first poster on his prediction that to win Kimi should be on a 3-stopper and JPM should be on a 2-stopper?

good race for the toyotas too eh..schumi with his first podium this season..

Great drive by Kimi, and hard to see why Ferrari still stick to Bridgestones if those tires cause them to lose about 2 secs per lap after about half the race....the Ferrari showed the pace it had in the first half but the tyres simply wont last the distance.

Good job by Mikey under such circumstances - he really had to work for 2nd place.

LOL, totally agree.......maybe he should have flashed 11 fingers to show that he finished in in 11th place.

Come on guys. There's no need to be too rough with any driver, whether is Schumi or Alonso. Both are paid to win by their teams. So whether it's winning 7 championships or flashing seven fingers, remember, they are just going about their business.

Although I am not really a fan of Schumi or Barrichello, I have to say your completely wrong in your statement.
Barrichello had banged his car in the first lap of the race after which he had to pit where Ferrari took a risk which didn' work out. They fuelled his car to the brim thinking it would be possible for him to do just the one stop extra which didn't work out.

Barri was struggling to hold the renault back .. i think the soft compound are to be blamed (ofcourse the unfortunate contact with ralf or was it trulli at the first corner )..one could see his front wash out exiting slower corners ;agreed he was on a heavy load initially but still mid race and later on he completely lacked the pace ...

PS: i aint a ferrari fan either ..

Good to see alonso bite the dust. good for the championship. Kimi is far better than Alonso. His manouvers are fantasitc.
Alonso had said "No point running faster for first 30 laps....the race has 70 laps".
Bad luck can strike anyone anytime. He can do well being humble.

Michael is always a genius. Wish he is as competetive in the rest of the season adding more excitment watching chase down between him, kimi and montoyo or even alonso.

hey dude i wouldnt say alonso is not as good as kimi in terms of technicality ..they both have superb racing temperment .what i dont like about fernando is the fact that he has picked up /scavenged easy points this season ..team wise i think they are still 2nd best out there ..

McLaren are streets ahead of all other teams in terms of performance and speed. However, their reliabilty is so low that it puts them in the Jordan/Minardi category. And since the 'car' is a combined package of performance and reliablility, they are still behind Renault. Renault is still ahead despite 2 big mistakes by Alonso (Canada and Hungary) and despite McLaren having better drivers in Kimi + JPM.

In short, Mclaen with its current reliability record is not the best car out there.
