      Trulli was originally classified third but had 25s added to his race time for passing under the safety car.

      wtf, you serious? I want to be happy about this b/c I am a fanboi, but the reclassification after the fact is pissing me off. Very good drive in a crap car. Attrition worked well for him.

      I was very impressed that he didn't do his usual freak out and crash thing. Looking at the car objectively during the race, it was nearly impossible to tell that he had any grip issues at all.

      I think the FIA and Bernie want to ensure that Toyota quits at the end of 2009.

      I have no problem w/ Toyota being the new whipping boys. They need to buy some whips and Nazi memorabilia.

      What's up with Ferrari? Wow to Hamilton!

      I watched the race, you see my kudos.
      But, I'm gonna throw up at another one of these Hamilton report threads! I suspect you knew that. Like was mentioned above, this is the first race,man.

      The difference from Friday practice was huge. It looks to me like they accepted they had a slower car and set it up to be friendly to the driver and lap consistently. It certainly paid off.

      Aided in part by the fact that Hamilton was completely irrelevant in the race and thus barely given any air time. Kind of hard to spot problems when you're only given 20 seconds of face time over the course of the race.

      Hammy was passing like crazy though. Especially early on in the race. Too bad for Heikke though.

      i cant blame trulli, the safety car situation was ridiculous. they did about 3 laps with the wreckage just sitting there without the safety car, and about 3-4 laps after it had been cleared.

      OH DEAR!!! That was the most inept thing! The SC period was retarded! 2 laps delay for deploymen, and three laps field gathering? F@uckeries!

      mclaren got a gift, lewis is talented, but his skills giving feedback about chassis and setup arent there yet.
      he will be on the outside looking in this season.

      Looks like they're going to penalize anyone who is fast until Mclaren can catch up. Don't feel bad for Toyota, they shouldn't mind giving Hamilton third place. After all, they didn't mind giving him the championship last season. Feel bad for Ron Dennis. He doesn't know where to send his spies now.

      Just seems like some pretty lame penalties were handed out. You don't think?

    21. 03-30-2009 02:04 PM #21
      Although I'm gonna take a wild guess and say you don't believe Timo Glock tanked it for Hamilton in the last race last year.

      You're acting as though half the field were penalized to get Hamilton into the top-3. Jarno was penalized, and that's it (to the best of my knowledge). Vettel's penalty was justified and inconsequential to Hamilton.
      As for Glock, are you seriously going to drag out that conspiracy theory again? Glock ran his ass off in Brazil as best as could be expected in the given conditions with the car he had.

      I must have read the thread wrong. Sorry, I didn't know this was the Hammy fan-o-rama. I'll let you alone now.

      If by right you mean "I have my head in a paper bag and believe whatever I want to believe without employing logical reasoning", then yes, you're right.
