Yeah, fun race. I really enjoyed watching this one even though it was Massa's weekend.
Interesting wording by LH in the post race press conference I thought. Can't remember all his exact words but it started with, "I must tell you..... Bridgestone thought..." then he changed his mind on this phrase "...they said the tires would fail..." To me this sounded like a premeditated effort to spin the story as Bridestone's failure to provide a safe tire.
BBC reported, "Hamilton was forced to adopt an unconventional three-stop strategy because his driving style was putting unusual
loads on his right front tyre, raising fears it might fail. Bridgestone advised McLaren on how long they felt the tyre was safe for Hamilton to drive on and the team decided he should make an extra stop as a precaution."
I was really taken aback by the thermal imaging cam or whatever they were calling it. During the race it showed that the tires fresh from the tires
blankets were just as hot if not hotter than the ones fresh from a stint on the track.
My vote for hottest 'Grid Girls' so far goes to Turkey
Does anyone else think that Honda's front winglets look a lot like.....
Got a laugh out of Peter Windsor yelling to Flavio, "See you in the gym Tuesday." Then commenting to the audience, "That's a real thing you know. He really does go to the gym... as hard as that is to believe."
Also got a much more painful laugh out of Bernie. When asked why Super Aguri couldn't get sponsorship he responded that everything was just dandy with F1. We've got more sponsors than we know what to do with, we're just very selective
: I'm sure Mr. Suzuki appreciates that.
