    I guess they decided that LH needed to punished for being knocked out at Spa, so they've sat him down for FP2...

    OMG the US coverage of quali was so bad it's just amazing. Why oh why can't they hold out 18 minutes without commercials and advertise between the sessions?? I mean come on. They even did a commercial during Q fucking 3!

    And the commentary... just tragic. As bad as American's doing football (sokker) commentary.

    I wish we could get sky in the Us for I am fed up of switching between NBC and Univision during commercials

    Not a bad race. Hamilton recovered beautifully, no whining today.

    Ricciardo, again. Beating Vettel easily at this point.

    Ferrari were very poor.

    Daniel. Fucking. Ricciardo.

    Nico overdrove the car, desperate to stay ahead of Hamilton (whose luck with the car is just unbelievably bad). I was actually surprised by how much pace Lewis had relative to Rosberg. I wonder if LH's engineer said that stuff about maintaining 2s gap to sell Rosberg's crew a dummy or if they really expected him not to pressure Rosberg until the end of the race. I was amused by the boos for Rosberg; then he tried to kiss ass by speaking Italian, and they booed more!

    Good result for Massa, and a nice FU to Ferrari on their own turf. Speaking of which, poor Alonso. Wasting some of his best years in cars that won't get him a championship.

    Another penalty for Magnussen. If I were a steward, I'd watch my back!

    Why the hate for Rosberg?

    I don't get it.

    Same here. And does LH speak any other language besides English?

    I read that Jackie Stewart said the win was engineered, and that Nico going off twice was to give LH the win back. Who knows.

    I think both penalties for Magnussen were harsh.

    No hate for Rosberg, but I do think he's a smug rich kid who will have lucked into this WDC. I certainly have no issue with his command of various languages. He's clearly an intelligent guy. I just found it funny that his attempt to win over the crowd had the opposite effect.

    I don't buy the conspiracy theories.

    I do not warm either to Hamilton or Rosberg to be fair...

    If I had to pick a driver, I will go for Vettel...

    Mine is Kimi. Had some high hopes, alas...
    Nonetheless, no one is cooler.
