Fisichella does not look happy does he. :D

Neither does Alonso. :D

Raikkonen doesn't waste any champers - drink it - end up half naked on a lawn.. ;)

Raikkonen and Alonso went head to head - Raikkonen finished 17s ahead of Alonso while starting behind him.

Best race i've seen in the last 6-7 years... when was the last time we saw a legitimate pass for the lead in a race? (I don't think Indy 2004 counts) also Jim "The Count" Rosenthal cracking a joke, Renault won't be "appy" with Fisi :D

yeah I know what you mean but it aint like motogp is it? the driver can't make a slow car win

To an extent yes, but at the same time not every driver can drive a fast car fast. And by fast I mean bloody quick, look at the pace he managed to extract out of that, and looked completely composed the whole time.


Very emotional Ron Dennis, true legend :D .

McLaren need 2 points more than Renault at the next race to be constructors champions.

They'll have the same points - but more wins.

Nice to see Ron look so happy - almost crying at the start there. You could hear it in his voice. :D

And I agree with him - Kimi's best race ever. Yup.
