    I think tumakbo agad si albers nung sumiklab yun fire, tapos nung nawala na yun fire hinahanap sya uli para continue yung race
    Ganyan din yung nangyari sa Minardi last year sa Monza Grand Prix. Si Bruni naman yung driver nila. Pero mas malaki yung apoy!

    Last year's fireball at the Minardi pit stop, Monza 2004:

    to Kimi's credit i haven't heard him saying he was the real champion or blaming others for his DNF's. he's come on really strong in the last part of this season and seems to have learned how to finish races strong. i think next year is his for the taking, but let's not take anything away from Alonso this year.
    Good for Kimi. He knows not to get a swelled head.

    It's something most people don't seem to realize. Kimi is extravagantly fast, but he's in the fastest car. Of course he should be champion... if McLaren Mercedes did their part of the job.

    I think the other teams aren't going after Fernando because his driving style is very well matched to the Renault (they've always been praised for their handling). Kimi's style is more like Schumi's, and he would well be able to adapt to any package they throw at him.

    Hats off to Kimi, but Fernando was right, he lucked out on the order of pit-stops and got caught in traffic in the wrong places. Otherwise, it could've been an even more exciting finish, with either Alonso tailgating Raikkonen to the line, or Raikkonen trying the same move on Alonso that he did on Fisi... who knows what could have happened?

    Brilliant overtaking by Kimi, but Fernando's overtake of Schumi on one of the fastest and scariest turns in F1, and his creative use of the pit lane exit against Webber just took my breath away. (puro palakpak ako nung nanonood ako the other night). Halos tumawa ako (sa tuwa) when I saw Kimi overtake Fisichella on the last lap. You could see him visibly going to pieces trying to hold Kimi off.

    I guess it proves once and for all why Giancarlo is only the number two guy on his team.

    Ditto to Michael's 5 Ferrari championships.

    Overtaking other than on the straights? No one does it better than Montoya. Too bad for him though he did not see more than a lap in Japan as Villeneuve was said to interfere. As expected, the Colombian points his finger at him, but the Sauber driver claimed he was clueless on what the #10 car intended to do. The Canadian was given a 25-second penalty relagating him from 11th to 12th, which didn't quite matter. I personally would have imposed a 10-grid penalty for China at the very least.

    Sato, on the other hand, made no apology whatsoever to Trulli. He seemed to have gone haywire already, resulting from his BAR ouster. The Japanese was disqualified in his home race for that accident.

    gusto ko yung sinabi ng commentator sa star sports... Kimi and Alonso are both fast and talented, but one of them is more intelligent. Syempre, mas intelligent si Kimi!

    Webber also complained that DC jump-started, while the commentators called it brilliant. From my point of view, he seemed to start earlier than the rest. Did any of you notice that too?

    ferrari fanatic yun commentator na yun. super idol nya si schumi. I dont know his name, but I think he's the old guy with glasses and receeding hairline

    yeah! parang an galing ng launch control ng red bull... p4 ata sila after the first corner?

    sato has gone loko! its all or nothing for him and i think he does'nt give a damn about BAR kaya ginawa nyang bump car yun kotse nya hehehe medyo disgruntled ata sya with his outster

    ilan na ba wins ni kimi? was it 7 or 8?

    last 2003, i think kimi was a good 2nd to MS most of the year in the championship although he won only 1 race. it was because he was as consistent as alonso is now on podium finishes.

    You have to take into account that Renault are fighting against McLaren very closely for the Constructor's title, so it could be that Fisi opted to finish safely than take the risk of wiping himself and/or Kimi out on the final lap and score nothing. And if you noticed in Brazil, Alonso simply let Montoya pass him just to make sure he gets the Driver's crown. No one knows, he might crash out, get injured for the rest of the season and lose the championship.
