In that mess it was possible... :)

Oh... and I forgot to add that Rosberg had a nice crash near the end...

I always thought that Monaco was one of the most difficult races around. Crashing should be expected at any time. :)

Although I'm fully anti Lewis fan, I made a bet with two pals that he'll win the championship. The bet was one cassette of beer with each of them. So I win either way :)

It was just for the sake of the game... I don't like if luck & money are tied together... I don't bet, nor I play fortune games... I like to have the full control :)

I understood that. :D

Hum, speaking of luck, I'm feeling kinda lucky this week. I might try lottery for a change. Maybe I win a couple of million bucks. That's be nice. I'd go to watch movies at the cinema more often. :proud:

We're at the speediest circuit of all... the circuit of Gilles Villeneuve:

I'll watch that for a bit, now that the Austria-Croatia match is at half-time.

Hey, Kubica in the lead in front of Heidfeld with 20 laps to go. Coulthard on 3rd... but he needs another pit stop.

I liked hearing the team speaking to Kubica on the radio: "Bring it home!" Meaning: you're in the lead, you can win your first race. Don't screw up.

What a great race:
Image
Is has some historic moments:
Hamilton's collision with Raikonnen will be remembered for the next 20 years. Also the Britt driver was penalized with 10 places in the next race (Magny Course), just as Roseberg received 10 places on the starting grid for kicking Hamilton's back. The Renaults had a great race too, pity that the didn't reached the finish line.
All in all, luck her and luck there, Kubica won the Canadian race, and so he became the first east-European driver to won an F1 race. So big congrats to him, 'cos this is a true milestone and great performance.
Also with this double-won both BMW take the lead and Kubica in the overall standing.
It's a great season, with 4 drivers being only at 7 point distance.

Lots of drivers spinning off in the rain at Silverstone; really fun to watch, as driving on wet surfaces really requires a lot of skill. Congrats to Hamilton who took the race on home ground. :)

Dude, that race was nuts. It seemed like somebody went spinning off the track on every other lap.
Peace. Love. Penguin.

Which is cool. It sort of teaches those guys a lesson; "you're used to traction control and all sorts of electronics helping you out, now try navigating Bridge corner without it!" :-D

You've got a point, though; the spectators couldn't see very much. And frankly, what you needed to be fast around Silverstone with that weather wasn't an F1 car, but something with a hull and an outboard motor. :)

Incredibly dramatic finish in Belgium today :-D

What a fight between Hamilton and Raikkönen, as it started to rain! And then Massa comes up from behind when Kimi spins into the wall. Hamilton in front is skidding sideways through the corners. :D

Bourdet was looking at his first podium too, but then Heidfeld and the others behind him were smarter; they went into the pit and switched to rain tires in the last few rounds, thus passing him easily despite his head start. That left him 7th, not 3rd, and possibly without a contract next year.
