McLaren Mercedes at Turkish GP

WBoth cars had a terrible start. Alonso finished third after a basically unexciting drive. Hamilton finished fifth after spending most of the race in third until a tire blew late in the race.

It was a race pretty much dominated by Ferrari with both Ferraris getting a good start to enter turn 1 in first and second (Massa, then Kimi). The order never changed from that point. Kimi kept the pressure on Massa but it was not a very interesing race in my opinion.

Monza could be another tough race...

i had high hopes for the race - new and exciting track -but it turned out to be another snoozer.

I hope McLaren realized by now that Ferrari beats them with starts on soft rubber and smaller fuel loads.

Let's hope that Monza suits the Mclaren better.

The team sure miss those points from Hungary. An extra 18 constructors points would be real handy now hey?
