Getting stuck behind MSC drove me nuts. He wasn't being completely "illegal" with his blocking, which was the tough part... you can't give him a penalty for that! Cunning bastard... !
haha... you don't win 7 WDC's without knowing how to push that grey-area. Credit to him I suppose.
Damn, Seb was ridiculous today. That pass on ALO on the outside/grass off of T3 (I think it was)...

This RB7 is just too good. He's might will clinch the title in Singapore. This is insane. What a crash from Liuzzi.
And how the hell did ALO suddenly crawl into 2nd!? WTH.
'By the end of October I need to have clear confirmation'
Autosport. "I need to define the best driver line-up, or the best one I can afford
"My issue is I cannot miss the opportunity to have Robert back, but at the same time I have to protect the interests of this team," Boullier is quoted by
Brawn hails Hamilton battle as 'vintage Michael'
Times quoted him as saying. "I had such a good run on him [Schumacher] and came on him so fast that he couldn't move a lot. It would have been very dangerous. But with Lewis he was moving across to the left and then to the right, which I don't think was all that bright. He always went to the right, then left and back to the right - not exactly what we agree is right. One move. Maybe he has just lost his memory."
"I thought he was moving quite a bit with Lewis," the
Schumi should have had penalty for blocking in Monza - we blew it - Agh-
FIA steward for the Italian Grand Prix, Derek Daly, admits he and the other stewards missed Michael Schumacher's questionable move on Lewis Hamilton, and had they seen it, the German would have been penalised.
Former-F1 driver, Daly, released a statement explaining how and why they missed the incident, adding that they let FIA race director Charlie Whiting down.“On lap 20, race director Charlie Whiting asked the stewards to look at an incident between Felipe] Massa and [Jarno] Trulli at the second chicane.“While looking at the slow motion video of this incident, I missed the Schumacher/Hamilton incident that happened at that moment.“When I looked at it again at home, I believe that Schumacher should have been given a drive-though penalty. He was warned repeatedly and this style of driving is not what you want the future generation of drivers to perfect.“We as stewards probably let Charlie down with this one," he admitted.The statement is unusual given that most driver representatives on the stewarding panel refuse to comment on incidents during the race.
Anyway, Sam Michael will join McLaren next season. And Luca has gripes.
"The current Formula One is still too dependent on aerodynamics and cutting out testing during the season has put too much emphasis on simulation work," he added. "At the mid-point of the last decade, there was definitely too much testing, but now we have gone in the completely opposite direction."

I can just about guarantee we won't see this image come Sunday.
You never know... a street-circuit + the possibility of rain? We're in for a crazy race.
This weekend's race is probably the one i dislike the most on the grand prix calendar. I find it bland and soulless. Even the organizers seem to promote the attractions during the weekend more than the race itself.
Anyway, only a few days before the game is out. I built my rig in anticipation for Battlefield 3, so I hope it's more than enough!
