ok it's starting soon!!!!!
good luck everyone and those who bet!
The grass eater is leading the pack.......super duper wet weather!
HAMILTON.........WINS the British GP.
Honda made a great finish!!!
congrats to hammy...
haiz...ferrari messed up the pitstops again. should have just changed kimi's tires.
THE FERRARI ONE-TWO WILL BE BACK NEXT RACE!!!
good to see a BWM in the top 3.
Massa really having fun today mans! Not good for Ferrari and tyre decision cost Kimi quite a bit. Rain is a bad news for Ferrari these days.
Hamilton was excellent. Simply the best today esp in the rain and slippery track.
A good drive from Hamilton. Great to see him win!
The most surprise driver to me would be Alonso.....he never change the tyre for the whole entire race.....!
Now that's what I call a super skilled driver. Pity because of his attitude problem or else he would have been a world champion many times.....he just have a really not so competitive racing car. I watch the whole race and the way he used the track is truly effective.
Hopefully to see more different winners in the next few races.
Well, kudos to McLaren and Hamster for keeping it together, unlike my beloved Maranello team who turned from a sprinting greyhound to a paddling poodle the moment heavy rain comes into play.
Gone are the Rain-Master Schumacher, or the Brawn/Todt decisive strategies. Trying to second guess the weather and perhaps think too much and trying to "act smart" too much has cost them. This sheer stupidity of letting Kimi run on worn intermediates has left me with a loss of words.

Interesting to watch how those drivers fumble in the wet condition, without the traction control. This time Ferrarri had outdone Mclaren's previous eat-the-grass acts with more eat-the-water dramas !!!
he was called the 'washing machine' by Steve Slater years back when he was racing in a Sauber. he spun so many times until Steve gave him name.
as for the current race, i personally felt that he could do better. is it because he sucks at wet conditions or is the car having some sort of problem?
