Best of the rest Rosberg, ahead of the BMWs.

It looks like a Murray Walker moment. 

Is that supposed to be a compliment? ;)

Liuzzi very encouraging. Speed was up there most of the session, and Davidson is fastest of the Hondas.

Hey, Speed qualified higher than Liuzzi!  And he has been quicker all weekend.  If the Italian was encouraging, what does that make Scott?  :D

Sometimes I swear that people have a blind spot when it comes to Speed...

I think Steven's comment is referring to the fact that Rosberg failed to get beyond Q3, let alone beat the BMWs...  ;)

He is getting there and Massa is back to his stupid mistakes. This time he stalled his car.

C'mon now, 1 mistake in several races, hardly makes for him being accused of making stupid mistakes.  It was a mistake plain and simple, if stalling on the grid is stupid then what do you call trying to drive away from your pit before your team has finished with you.....I am not attacking anyone here, I just think that we need to accept that drivers will make mistakes from time to time....and not instantly accuse a driver of being stupid, these guys, while experts, are only human after all.

Just something to consider guys.

He did'nt stall anyway, his engine cut out, listen to pit radio

Thanks for correcting that one Ian, plus I only just got to the news articles on the race...I just saw the article with Jean Todt saying as much too....I didn't catch that particular transmission on the telecast...

Once again Ian, thanks mate

Hey ! I meant no disrespect. I heard the pit radio and that the Engine cut out and also that Ferrari were worried about it cause it could recur in a pit stop scenario. But that didn't occur and if there was an engine cut out, I think Massa would have gone to town about how he could have won like in France. Even than Massa would have probably finished ahead of Kubica that is all according to me.
I know drivers make mistakes, its just that "don't make yourself sound invincible"

It's all good Raindancer, there is no animosity here.....I can sometimes come across a little offended.  I personally (and I think some of you guys do too) don't like generalities, or getting caught up in the hysteria surrounding certain things...I look at things on an individual basis and make up my mind from there...things like that stepney thing has gone overboard and people are lining up like little lemmings and making speculations without facts....and in this case you see that the commentators were immediately critical of Massa before they had the information...

So anyways to sum up my ramble...it's all good mate, you have a valid opinion....Keep them coming...and thanks for joining us in the chat during the race

I wonder when Ferrari will finally win a championship on their own merits.

Barring any McLaren penalty, imposed by the FIA, I feel that the Championship this year is still beyond either of the Ferrari drivers.

The last two races have been at circuits where this years Ferrari has worked particularly well in comparison to the McLaren. Nurburgring may see the cars a litle more evenly matched.

Autosport did a comparison, a couple of weeks ago, looking at circuit characteristics and whether Ferrari or McLaren would have a car advantage at each race. From hereon it looks to be spread evenly over the remaining races. Any giant leap forward from either in terms of car development excepted.
