A pretty good race this weekend. Whenever it rains its makes it more interesting and stuff happens and our almost guaranteed rain in Spa.
Hamilton won with a great drive, Webber 2nd and Kubica showing what a good driver he is finishing 3rd. It was helped of course by Vettel taking out Button.
Button was in 2nd but stuggling for balance with damage to front wing. He was holding off Vettel well. However, Vettel made a silly move to overtake him. Went for the inside and then sharply turned to the outside which resulted in he sliding and crashing into Button. Vettel damaged front wing but Button was out.
It was not the only incident involving Vettel who seemed to be involved in all incidents! Vettel is clearly a talented driver and still very young but he crashes a lot and makes contact with other drivers an awful lot. Some people also say hes great when leading but when not at the front and he has to overtake people hes not that good. Unlike the likes of Hamilton, Alonso and Button hes not as good with the close “hand to hand” action.
2 horse race??
It was be interesting to see how the season pans out now. Is it now a 2 horse race?? There is still 6 races to go and thats 150 points. Ferrari will still go for it with Alonso but both McLaren and Red Bull have 2 drivers in the top 5 and the whole team orders issue. Will McLaren and Red Bull have to favour Hamilton and Webber now – even if they wont say it?? If it is a 2 horse race I hope Webber wins. Although Hamilton is British and should support him, I have never been the biggest Hamilton fan. Hes already won the championship and may well win more. Webber has never won it and this may be his last chance. He also comes across as a top bloke.
Things change quickly in F1 and a bad race for Hamilton/Webber and good one for Button/Vettel will change things again. Bring on Monza!!
PS – It was a real shame that Ruben’s 300th race ended with a DNF when he crashed into Alonso. He misjudged the wet conditions and sled into Alonso so was his fault but still a shame.
PPS – Note to BBC Sport. Your Formula 1 coverage is brilliant, love the F1 Forum with the extra coverage and interviews with drivers (once again Jenson Button gave a good interview – talking about getting the boxing gloves ready to face Vettel! :)) but Jonathan Legard is rubbish. I am not the only one with so many people complaining about his commentating.
PPPS – Why was Massa not penalised for overshooting his grid place at the start??
