(Also, for the Dutchies: Them not showing the full riders interviews on TV afterwards anymore, instead opting for the whining of some stupid comedian, makes them officially shit. Cunts.)

Indeed. I'm so going to watch next year's races on BBC.

For sure. Massa has turned into a very very good driver this year. I think Schumacher has taught him the ways of the master.

Amen. His many spins early on have certainly decreased over the season, and he's noticeably become a better, much more controlled driver.

Indeed, he managed to win more races than the Hamster this year, and things could have been different if he hadn't had the engine blow out when on course for a win earlier in the season. It's a shame some of that has been overshadowed by events that were to all intents and purposes out of his control (Spa and the Bourdeis 'incident').

Just makes next season all the more fascinating.

Well that's nice coming from choddo who is a mod.

In the x factor thread jpickford said "diana should just die" - no explanation as to why. He just said it. In the buzzcocks thread a few people called James Cordon a cunt. He is a cunt and makes them sick. I haven't seen anyone start banging on at them for saying such things. For them to explain themselves. No one has told them to "cunt off", told them they were talking shite, are a prick etc etc. There is no reasoning other than they seem to loathe the people. But no one gives a fuck (and rightly so I think)

I'd fucking love to see the reaction had I come in here at the start of the race and said "Hamilton is a cunt who makes me sick and I hope he dies".

Nice one choddo by the way. I don't really "know" people on this tread as such. But because of the hd tv thread I did at least have respect for you. No doubt if I answered back in a similar way I'd be looking at a warning or a ban.

No. Both Toyota's stayed on dry tyres and it cost them on the last lap when the rain got heavier. They both did 1:44s on the final lap. Amazing scenes really.

I knew that but, and I may be totally wrong, I thought Glock actually passed Hamilton and was pulling away then suddenly he pretty much stopped. That's how it looked to me.

You are totally wrong.

Glock fell back through the field from fourth. Hamilton was chasing Vettel on the final lap.

Ahh ok! I was chatting to my mrs' parents at the time and wasn't paying proper attention. That makes more sense.

It's ok to dislike someone and not give reasons. I do it all the time. But you say it so often and add comments like "It's bad for the sport that Lewis has won the Chapmionship" which do, in my opinion, need justifying. Why is it bad for the sport?

In truth, what I think you mean is "Lewis winning is going to hinder my enjoyment of the coverage of the sport even more than normal" which just makes you seem like such a bitter man.

Yeah, they do go on about him, but he's British and he's challenging for the title. It's not like he's hoping to make 9th place this year and they're covering that instead of the Championship leaders. "Ooh, will he manage it, can he break into the top ten, let's see what Alonso thinks to him." No, he's World Chapmion and the coverage would focus on him a hell of a lot anyway even if he wasn't British. It just so happens that he is British and so it is assumed that the British viewers have even greater interest in him as a result. Fair enough, you don't, but their assumption/coverage isn't going to change whether you whine about Hamilton being a cunt 200 times in this thread or not.

Ultimately, if you don't enjoy the sport anymore, just stop watching and posting in here like you've said you're going to.

HA! Loving the ITV news slow mo of the moment of realization in the Ferrari pit.

Over to you George:

Am I the only one who finds that heartbreaking to watch? It's awful, the look on his father's face is just terrible. It's such a cruel way to lose, thinking that you've won. All of his dreams for his son realised and taken away in the space of about 8 seconds.

:lol:

not cruel as such since he was hardly robbed in the same way the FIA shafted Hamilton earlier in the season with post race penalties that changed the results.

it's just a peril of premature celebration, given the race was still running.

emjay2k: I said it was bad for the sport from my own personal point of view. This is the first year I have actually not watched F1 races. I've seen maybe half of them, and even then not all the way through. I wanted to like it again, but couldn't find it in me to really get behind any of the drivers.

I was going to watch the first race on the BBC just to see how they handled things compared to ITV. But from my point of view, I won't now because it's obvious exactly what will be going on. And I am not going to tune in and watch almost blanket coverage of someone I don't like. Followed by a race where there is no one I want to cheer on. I only watched this race because it was the last of the season.

I am pissed off because I not what you would call an avid sports fan. F1 and the Moto Gp are my only real loves where sport is concerned. It's a shame that there isn't enough of a reason to keep me watching the sport I have followed since I was at school.

I guess if there are any new exciting drivers next year then it might get me interested again.

But for every time I "banged on" about Hamilton, there were twice as many massalol's and twice as many again FIA biased comments. But because they came from Hamilton fans it was never tiresome or boring it seems. Frankly I thought the same massa crying pics being posted countless times each race weekend he had bad fortune grew weary a long time ago.

There is one point you fail to mention time after time after time - the best driver won, Hamilton is the best driver - the only yardsticks we have are that he was in the same car as the perceived best driver and he handed him his ass on a plate in his first season. In his second season he won the world championship in arguably a slower car than the Ferrari.

If you said ' Man i totally respect the guys ability and he is clearly the best driver on his day in any given conditions but personally i find him an intolerable cunt (much like this Steveh character on rllmuk) you may get some sympathy. Sticking with your 'waaah waaah waaah i hate drivers who win without being dirty cheating cunts who don't even let a team mate compete on an equal footing with them' is getting tired and boring.

I fear you will be as missed as James Allen around the F1 fans in here.

Exactly. They mentioned briefly how Massa's dad took him racing, sacrificed his time etc. - pretty much what Lewis's dad did, just on two opposite sides.

Hamilton is the best driver in your opinion. It's not fact and can't be measured as fact unless every driver is given exactly the same equipment and isn't subject to any accidents or breakdowns. The same way as Senna, Schumacher or any of the greats can never be called "the best" because someone will always have reasons as to why one of the others was better.

edit: a quick look on wiki reveals Hamilton and Alonso finished equal on points. You have a funny interpretation of "handing his ass to him".

Yeah you probably saw Vettel pass Hamilton when he ran wide like a noob.

I was thinking about that earlier; did he run wide, or did Hamilton let Vettel through so he didn't take him out while trying to overtake?

That might seem strange, but after the race I heard someone from McLaren saying that they told Lewis that he was going to catch Glock on the final lap. They cut it incredibly fine in the end, but I guess they were expecting more rain to come and slightly earlier than it actually did, only really starting half-way through the final lap.

It was one hell of a call if that's what they did do.
