I only heard them mention him once, they've said how bad Button's performance was a few times...

The RBR team are a lot of fun :)

Funny really, given that DC is usually really boring :p

Being at Red Bull has changed him a lot. He's driving better *imho* and he's enjoying himself more.

He no longer has to think of what the McLaren team will think - Red Bull are there to race - but also to have a lot of fun.

A worthy team to buy Minardi team. Still up for fun.

Nice tribute to Michelin there as well.

Yer exactly, has been good for him I think.

Barrichello did well - this is the first race with Honda where he has finally shown that he can go fast.

Although I was expecting him to do better than Button - but not this soon and more importantly not that much of a gap. :eek:

Well, wasn't that exciting? I mean, what with that huge fight for the lead towards the end of the race.....oh, wait a minute.....

Congrats to Alonso for a) being just about fast enough when he actually had people racing him and b) being lucky enough to have no mechanical problems when his main rivals fell by the wayside. Congrats to DC and Red Bull for the podium finish. Congrats to Michael Schumacher for making up 16 (I think?) places.

And congrats to a) the anti-Schumacher brigade on here for taking the jabs about him to the point of boredom and b) the pro-Schumacher brigade for not being able to ignore those jabs. Well done to you all. :p

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a tape here of the 1992 Monaco race and I'm going to go watch the last few laps. While I realise that a "cheating ****" in the view of one poster on here (looking at you dannyjo22) won that race, it was at least orders of magnitude more exciting than a modern GP.

Was a good interesting race, but I was disappointed DC wasn't wearing the full Superman race suit as Klien was wearing, but at least he wasn't a big a spoilsport and least wore the cape :)

Webber, really unlucky, was hoping he'd stay up front for the rest of the race, but he really seems to be unlucky this season, he's a good driver just his cars are being so inconsistent.

Cracking race and well done DC!

One comment I must make; some people on this board and the level at which they seem to have a "passion" for F1... you guys scare me. If you really need to take it that seriously, I suggest that over the GP weekend you just log off your PC.

Those tyres on Alonsos car :eek:

A lot of that is when at the end of the race they deliberately drive offline to pick up all the marbles. The hot and sticky tyres pick up all the discarded rubber.

Increases the car's ride height by over an inch

Increases the cars weight by a kilo or two per wheels as well.
