Re: F1 2012 Championship Thread

Should be interesting tomorrow- Lewis on pole with his good mate the Crash Magnet right next to him.

I think I'll predict a good chance of the Crash Magnet taking out Lewis at the first corner, and letting Vettel stroll away with the race...

If Pastor has any sense, he'll stay well clear of any other cars, lest he get a race ban for causing a crash. After all hasn't he been to the stewards almost as much as Grosjean?

"Crash Magnet", lol. True, though...

Hamilton's odds for a race win tomorrow are remarkably short (odds on, in fact) given how unpredictable this season has been. Given Maldonado's record for crashing, it's half-tempting to short Lewis by way of a hedge against being my being disappointed by such an outcome.

Actually more than Grosjean- 8 penalties out of 12 races (two at Spa!)... though never with a ban

Well not yet at least, Though being in the banned club is not one I suspect a driver wants to get into, though he does have some illustrious fellow members Schumacher, Hakkinen, Mansell

And Vettel wins. I'm more pleased by DiResta's 4th place- I think his best result, and just shy of a podium.

Oh great, another win for the stupid wunderkind. I'll give up on watching F1 if he wins another title.

It's only his second win this year, and he's still only third in the championship (albeit only by one point behind Lewis).

I'd say, really, Alonso's got the championship well in the bag now. It's mathematically possible for Lewis or Vettel to take it, but, realistically, at this point I'll be *very* surprised if it's not Alonso.

Would rather see Alonso run away with the title than Vettel fight for it, as at least the former is a proper driver, albeit an arrogant, annoying one.

The only thing that remains to be seen if any action will be taken regarding the restart after the first SC. Last I heard JB, SV and the teams where in the stewards room. Though I don't expecnd any sort of penalty

Re: F1 2012 Championship Thread

It looked to me like Vettel came to a near-complete halt right in the middle of the corner, while Button was doing more of an appropriate speed. Basically, Vettel's fault.

I'm not disagreeing I'm just not expecting any sort of penalty, that'll affect the result of the GP.

Re: F1 2012 Championship Thread

What's the problem with Vettel? He's not a big racer, but he's certainly very fast, apparently competent at working his team and generally nice to the media & public. I find Alonso far more tiresome a personality.

Lewis did well not to keep his cool at the mechanical failure when pretty much in control of the race, and I must admit having a moment of anticipating JEV clocking Schumy after he crashed into the back of him and they were walking towards each other.

Button showed his maturity when Vettel slammed on the brakes; all those early years in inconsistent & disappointing cars has certainly made for a calm and focused racer.
