I hear you! I think Sutil is going to stay with Force India because the Indian owner has a lot of money to pay him in the future as the car is only going to get better!

Hehehe... Jenson Button and Jacques Villenueve said the same thing and look how their careers got stalled/died. Sutil and his managers will take the path that gets him to a better car as fast as politically safe.

Sutil was on MacLaren's 2008 wish list above even Rosberg.
Despite multi million dollar offers from MacLaren, the teams were unwilling to release either driver, and in came Kovalainen in a Renault / Alonso deal / swap.

Naturally I feel sorry for Sutil, but it's difficult to fully blame Raikkonen - he hit a small wet patch which I would doubt he saw with the light differential within and without the tunnel. He braked, got lairy, and eventually drove the Ferrari into the Force India. Unlucky. He ended up without reward regardless.

Hamilton was unbelievable - catching the barrier is usually end of race - but he caught enough of it to manhandle it back to the pit. Great pitwork again by McLaren and really you have to say he deserved this one. Delighted for him. Felt like I did watching DC in his two Monaco wins, that something would let go, but fortunately not.

He should really be on a roll going into Canada - can Ferrari rediscover their pace? Monaco is normally a one-off - so I'm not getting my hopes up too much...

Heikki again with woeful luck - when will it change?
