Official Result

Good to see Mark getting some more points at last. There were certainly a few drivers out there trying "interesting" passing moves, eg JPM on Ralf, Sato on Barrichello, and also Webber on Schuey. Note also again the Mercedes engines blew up, a bit embarrassing for a home GP.

Re: European GP results

Got take your hat off to 'em, what realiability and hardly any stuff ups along the way.
Thank god for BAR and Renault, the other big 2 well..... . Poor Kimi hope he has an escape clause in his contract.Good 'ol JPM butts his team mate. Congarts to Fisi, I think he started about last and grabs 6th. Look where Massa finishes 9th, thats 4 Ferrari engines in the top 10 maybe Ron should make a deal LOL

Re: European GP results

Was going for Sato, but he was a bit dumb in trying that move on RB as he was fast enough to get by eventually. He'll learn as he gains more frontline race experience. Still full credit to him for being faster than anyone else bar MS this w'end.

Re: European GP results

Another shitter of a race for Mclaren, hopefully the "B" spec car that they are going to test this week will be better, It sure must of been embarrassing for Mercedes having their engines blown to pieces in front of a home crowd.

You have to wonder how their shit went downhill so quickly,Imean last years car was more reliable and this years car is not consistantly that much faster than last years

Re: European GP results

I saw the race...what was Sato thinking? he knew he had a faster car so why not wait. there was no room for such a move. well done to michael keep going buddy others may criticise you but what else can they do? certainly not win :)

Re: European GP results

I feel most sorry for Da Matta, the innocent victim in the Williams coming together.

Good race for Webber, tho the Jag was alot slower than I expected.

Not a lot obviously...

Was a thoroughly BORING race again - Sato's brain fade then repeat of Monaco engine failure not included - and I was extremely dissapointed in Button's performance.

His car just wasn't on the pace, and it was luck and attrition, not skill, that got him his podium finish.

Webber must be extremely unhappy with the Jaguar - but at least he finished in front of JPM - Frank Williams must be more and more keen to get Webber in a car with every passing weekend.

Re: European GP results

I turned it off at about the halfway stage...just because I was tired.

Great to see Webber got some points...but I think it is significant that he can do it when the car doesn't go cough, splutter and die.

What was the passing move he attempted on Schumacher?

Yet again I think the tension between JPM and Ralf will have escalated...dope.

Maybe JPM wasnt waving to Ralf to signal he thought it was ralfs fault amybe because he was saying sorry, I dont know how much of the incident you can blame on JPM because his car was a POS all weekend
