Massa and Raikkonen finished 1-2 in Monaco qualifying this morning, followed by the two McLarens. If both Ferrari drivers get a quick start and stay ahead of the pack they should be able to finish in the top two, barring any mechanical failures, of course.

Very entertaining race today.

And congratulations to Kiwi Scott Dixon on your Indy 500 win.

Two things for next year:

I need to get there earlier to actually see some of the race from the infield (they totally took out all the infield "hills" in turn one and shortened up the lawn at turn four).

I would like to see more racing and less crashing

Fantastic race, plenty of incidents, made it worth watching.

WEBBER

Bloody Raikkonen though, cost Sutil five points.

Great drive by Hamilton

So the front row for tomorrow's Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal will be Lewis Hamilton and Robert Kubica (who suffered a horrible crash here last year). They will be followed by Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso.

I'm looking forward to it! Should be an event-filled race as usual.

Today's race was a very entertaining one indeed.

Unfortunately, Kimi Raikkonen was taken out by Lewis Hamilton when Raikkonen stopped at a red light in the pit lane and Hamilton rear-ended him.

But all was not lost for Ferrari. Felipe Massa pulled two unbelievable manoeuvres, first when in one fell swoop he went from 6th to 4th by passing Rubens Barrichello and Kovaleinen and later when he passed Jarno Trulli for 5th position with a few laps to go.

But congrats to Robert Kubica who won his first career race here, at the very track where he was in a horrible crash just one year ago.

I can't stay awake or watch the interesting races... but I see like half of the shit-boring ones. Fucking typical.



Was Webber ever looking to get a podium finish??

Not that I recall, actually. I think at one point he was having some sort of engine trouble, but I think he finished the race.

Awesome for Sauber. I always liked Sauber, they'll always be Sauber to me, I wish Peter was still around, and the green was still there.

If Heidfeld can win a race, and Webber gets another bunch of really decent finishes, then I'll be pretty happy with this year.

Shame for Takuma Sato and Anthony Davidson... they were both pretty talented guys who never got their big chance...

This is good news. Melbourne set to stay with a deal to 2015!


A deal is expected to be signed off with Grand Prix bosses within days, extending Melbourne's contract by five years, News Limited reports.

A verbal agreement has been reached and a senior government source confirmed the race would stay in Melbourne, saying an announcement was "imminent".

Fantastic to hear, though I don't get why they made it a twilight race. All that'll do will make the locals complain more... the race will finish roughly 6:30, it'll still be daylight.

I hate twilight crap. You have to wait all day.

We just had a fantastic race, people!! So happy for Rubens to finish third.

Love him or hate him, and I don't see why anybody would, Lewis Hamilton has been sensational in his last two races. I think he and McLaren are really in the groove and should probably win in Hungary. After the three week break who knows, but right now, they are on fire.

Well, I was hoping, of course, that Ferrari would win the Italian Grand Prix. An Italian team won, but not the one I was hoping for! Twenty-one-year-old Sebastien Vettel from Scuderia Toro Rosso, Red Bull's second team, which uses Ferrari engines, had a superb race from start to finish and becomes the youngest driver to win a race.

Well done! It was weird hearing the German and Italian national anthems after the race. It reminded me a little of when I used to hear that regularly during the Michael Schumacher era.
