Belgian GP: race of the year?

This was race was more exciting on the first lap alone than the whole of the Euro GP the other week. There were tussles going on all over the track from the start to the finish, and proved once again why Spa is such a good place to race. Great entertainment.


As soon as Lewis Hamilton span at the beginning of the race it looked like it was going to be all Raikkonen. And it was, until the rain came down and he backed off, into the oncoming Hamilton.

Lewis overtook through the chicane, let Kimi back through, then overtook him again properly and made it stick. Then Kimi binned it into the wall and that was that. All with only a lap and a half to go.

It certainly seems like Kimi’s title fight is over, and Lewis proved his worth in awful conditions. He risked everything and won they day, and you can’t ask for more than that.

But as for the rest of the field, there’s just not enough room here to talk about it all, so I’ll hand over to you…

Af said – Schumacher should have received a penalty for that one, of course.

Question is if someone mistakenly escaped a penalty in the past, all should escape it in the future? Does two wrongs make one right?

I’m sure Hamilton will take it OK. After all he’s English. We’re used to losing on penalties!

Bring it on Monza! Hamilton fired up! Raikkonen fired up! Massa, well he will want to win! The decision’s been made- let’s thank it for setting up an even closer title race. One that will inevitably be awesome. And don’t discount kimi just yet: last year, 5 races left to go- kimi 16 points behind, now he’s 18 points behind…. Fantastic race though and i think the person who is probably just as unfortunate is Bourdais. he drove perfectly and could have got a pole…

I think the FIA made the right decision. Raikkonnen defended that turn properly, but instead of slowing down, Hamilton just cut the corner, let Kimi pass to avoid being penalised, then used the speed that he already had to overtake him. I think what the FIA should from now on, though, is to replace corners like that with grass so that it would actually be goin out of the track

I do not know who was, or was not at fault during the race as I am not qualifyed in FIA law . I am however a qualifyed ref in another sport . What is utterly deporable is the incosistancy of the FIA , they seem to give differing punishments for the same offences . Some people are saying they favor Ferrari but whatever is the cause of the different punishments it has to be urgently addressed . The very fact we can all have our own interpritations of the rules is to the detiment of the sport if we can efectively argue about the rules then they need to be simplifyed . Standerdising the officals would also help as this would give the process stability as the event moves from venue to venue .
It is a great responability to offitiate in any sporting event and you have a duty to eveyone involved to endever to get things right which with real time decissions is tough , however in this case they had plenty of time to View the evidence so they have no excuse for inconsistancy . As I said before I am just a fan but it is crazy we are talking about the interpritation of rules when we should be applauding the driving skills of Kimi and Lewis
