    Can you then give us a list of EVERYTHING that YOU like & don't like so we can all be on the same page? God forbid somebody doesn't like something that you do... :norton

    I would put brussel sprouts on the top of my "don't like" list.

    That had to be the most boring race of the season! I could care less who wins.
    Aloser Ferwhino, has a better car than Vettel so does Massa, The only reason he had any success was Fat boy cheated enough to make him look good.The German is just that good! Just like Rosberg is better than Hamilton, but ole RB is gonna equal stuff out so that Lewey doesn't fill his lid with tears:lol3

    Not possible; every interview he does he interrupts whoever he is speaking to, and he is also a smug winner. Who likes that? Same reason Jorge Lorenzo is a douche.

    I remember in 2008, Vettel beating Alonso soundly in a second tier car. Sure, Alonso's a damn fine driver, but I'm calling bull-sheisse on that one. :krusty

    Too late now. I believe the new rubber was tested Friday and will be used at Silverstone.

    Mercedes will get a fine, maybe a points deduction. But the win will stand, I feel.

    I have a pathologically horrible memory, but it seems to me that the reason previous Montreal races were exciting was because of safety cars, weird tire strategies or weather. This race had none of the above and was therefore a wee bit calmer, at least at the front.

    I did enjoy Alonso fighting like he didn't at Monte Carlo, and seeing Massa move up.

    I felt bad for Kimi, who proved the adage that there are horses for courses, which implies the opposite, there sometimes the horse isn't meant for the course.

    But overall I felt gloom because that smug sap Vettel ran away with the win and it was obvious he would by the first pit stop. The young man would be more likable, and have an improved character, were he to endure a period of sustained failure.

    Make it so. :lol3

    Unless, of course, it's a talking horse.

    Kimi Raikkonen on his Canadian Grand Prix:
    “My race didn’t start very well and then my brakes were fading with the pedal going soft; similar to the problem we had on Friday. It wasn’t ideal but at least the brakes were good enough to slow me down for the corners. Unfortunately though it meant I lost a lot of time and wasn’t able to attack, plus we lost a few seconds in the pit stop which obviously didn’t help either. Most of my race was just following the cars in front and defending from those behind, so not the most enjoyable day nor the most enjoyable result. It’s been a bad weekend, but at least we scored a few points.”

    Either this should go in the Guinness Book of World Records for Kimi's longest speech, or his publicist should get a medal

    Don't try to confuse people here by bringing up stuff like that. Seb's a rotten little Kraut prick who should be drummed out of F1 for winning to much.
