Idiotic policy decision by McLaren to 'delay' tyre change lets Hamilton down! Brazil is sure gonna be a 'cracker!'.

We might again see an Indian driver in Formula One.
No, they are only good in Cricket, Hockey and IT, not driving! Motorsport not in the 'culture' - maybe they should 'headhunt' Ralf Schumacher as he has possibly nowhere to go next season?

Magnificent race. I think it's awesome that the Gods are going to make Hamilton earn it every step of the way, and that the WDC is now waiting to be decided on track at the final race of the season.

I can't believe McLaren let him out that long, given how thrashed his right rear tire looked. Seems like he had perhaps his second ever momentary lapse of reason in an open wheel car (the first being his DQ in GP2 for passing the pace car, although I missed that race).

Don't blame McLaren for this one. Hamilton blew it by thinking he should be defending his position. He should have let Kimi go by and motored on at 9/10ths. Instead of 8 points he came home with none.

Where's the traction

I think they should have put tires on when he pitted previously. Bad choice not to put on tires. Oh well, should be one heck of a battle in Brazil.

Mercedes Benz, enough said.

It will be very interesting to see how McLaren and Ron Dennis prepare for this next event. Will they put Lewis in a position to run a safe and relatively low risk race? Or will they allow Alonso to run on an equal status, thereby putting Hamilton in a defensive position? If there ever was a time for unleveling the playing field, it would be now. On the other hand, Ron could regain some level of respect if he let the boys run even up.
