You get back from your Buffalo beating adventure and all you can do is try and spoil the party Bobo.Hahaha, and you aren't even gratefull that Alonso's superb driving made Hambo's WDC lead less over Massa than what it would have been.

Alonso's acheivement just adds to all his other ones and those Ferrari boys are looking like a bunch of dumbasses with their refueling stupidity and many other problems and Schumi's token prescence makes them look even dumber.
As much as I like Ferrari at their best,I hope Fernando doesn't go to this type of Ferrari Dumbass team.He doesn't need to really!!

Hey Alonsoists!! Dont let anyone diminish Alonso's superb drive and victory.Hope you are enjoying the victory as much as I am!!:)

I had this song in my head before and during the race.I dont expect anyone to like it like I do.Not everyone's cup of tea!!But I am celebrating!!!!!!!!!!

"You rise,you fall,you're down then you rise again!! What dont kill ya makes ya more strong!!! through black days,through black nights,through pitch black insides!!"

"The Dawn,The death,the fight to the final breath.
What don't kill ya makes ya more strong"

Woo Hooo!! Alonso won the 1st night race in an R28!!

Come now GFG, that's not the intention, just seesm Koji is more concerned about records than anything else, just proving that point, you never heard the Vettel cheerers going on about him now being the youngest driver to win a F1 race, or youngest to pole, or youngest on the podium. I suppose with Vettel taking those records off Fanny, you worshitters had to hope for something again.

As for the rest, I made my feeling clear on one of the other topics, I think if ferrari want a shot still this year, it's time for Domenicali to step aside and allow the little napoleon with the big beak to come back in and steady the ship. There is no doubtr the presesnce of Jean Todt this weekend is a signal from Ferrari that they are not happy with the way ferrari are performing in the pits.

What is even more disturbing is the lack of good judgement, I really am not too sure they quite know what the hell they are doing, with all due respect to the Kimister, he is driving like a third rate driver. I reckon they need to check that cars for magnets or something, because whenever it gets too close to a barrier, Kimi has to hit it. And ferrari will have to put up with this shite till 2010. Sorry boys in that department you made a huge mistake too, they should have let the drunk in the gorilla suit go, right about now he is an embarrassment not only to ferrari but to F1 too. I can't wait for the translated story and excuses from him this week from Nicole.

What I find very amusing is that so many of these supposed f1 know alots on this topic were calling for Felipe's head after the first 2 races, yet it's no big deal that Kimi has scored a big fat zero in the last 4 races, crashing out on 2 of those occasions. Sorry to say but the dumbass Finn should have that contract withdrawn and told to go drive demolition derby for some other team.

Ha ha Alonso 4million, you are very naive and confused. Let's be realistic, they were racing on a track where passing was virtually impossible. Most of these cars are pretty impressive with low down grunt, that's no secret, but it's not really the classic circuits of a Monza or Spa where speed and balance become so essential. Sure Alonso drove a good race, nobody is doubting that, but really to think that because of that he is proof of how Renault has come up this year is just plain thick!!!!

As for ferrari seeing better days, if you believe that you are either dillusional or just plain ignorant. Personally I think both apply.

Go easy on Kimi and me Bob, afterall it looks like we will be joining forces soon - are you mentally prepared for us both singing the Massa WDC 2008 -song?

haha i like the "Alonso 4million" that made my day lol.. bob i agree with you minus the naive and confused part. What I meant was no one expected Ranualt to win anything this year. For them to do so and TAKE FASTEST LAP is something most of us believe to be a maricale. That being said they have come along way after last year and this is proof of that :D (thats what i meant numb nuts lol) Renault couldnt run any kind of track without problems or a horrible position.

Massa and Kimi both ran very good untill massa went into the pits and kimi kissed the wall.. i do believe ferrari has seen better days wouldnt you say? dillusional or just plain ignorant? lay off that bottle or give it to me lol

redneck Bob,I have to agree,with alot you have said,Renault are still a good second away from the front runners,and for what every reason the car worked well in Singapore and Fernando knows that.It does point to the chassis as well as engine power,and I think it will show in Japan.He did drive well and did deserve the win.

I don't understand what is going on with Kimi,alot you can put down to the car but this time a bad mistake in my books + a bad pitstop.

bob the record is important because is an achievemt that will last forever.

youth records are nice but are there to be beaten

before it was alonso now is vettel and sooner or later it will be somemone else younger..like nico hulkemberg for example or the new kid on the block arrived,

but when we are not here anymore and someone looks after who was the first f1 night race winner he will see alonso name and nobody ever will be able to change that.

i knew alonso would not dissapoint and do his best to win this, race because we all know it was the race of the year and he delivered!!.. as i expected ;-)

and doing it with a tunned twingo adds value to the victory

it was a lucky win of course, but the important thing its that the PACE WAS THERE.

so the team effort and alonso hands makes it a worthy win.

Bob..If Piquet Jr. didn't bring out the safety car, and the race would have been run without any major incidents, Alonso would have maybe.... maybe have finished 5th, but probably would have ended up in sixth or seventh place.
Warm weather seems to favor the boys from Maranello, and at the next 3 races could be in their favor, that is if there is no....rain.

Bob, I know the Blue is smooth, but how much did you consume yesterday?

If Alonso's engine had not gone all kapput, Hamilton would not have got into Q3. There are many "ifs" if you want to look for them.

But why the singing from the tree tops for you worshitters, are you lot that desperate. Massa wins the fist Valencia street race this year, takes pole and fastest lap. Whoo hoo, a great achievement but in the grand scheme of things just another record. Vettel takes Alonso's records to pieces by being the youngest pole winner and podium, yet no Vettel fans going on and on and on. Sounds to me like after Vettel's escapades in Monza Fanny really didn't have much left in the records department, and you worshitters were so desperate to get his name back in. Keep in mind too that for the past 2 years you worshitters have been going on and on and on about Alonso's youngest records, now suddenly they're not that important???? Personally I think the only ones we should be cheering about are the ones that will break Schumie's stranglehold on F1, I mean if ever there is to be an achievement that has to be it. The driver who cracks 92 wins, or 8 WDC's or 14 wins in a season. Like Kimi, despite a really crappy season, is equal with the Schu on most fastest laps in a season.

Hey Lawrence, it was s a sad day, believe me, but I took it easy, I think I sipped back just over a quarter bottle. hey by the way I'm not begrudging Fanny his win, I thought he drove brilliantly, and deserved it totally. Strategy was good, luck was there, and he had the pace because of the circuit to stay in front, nothing wrong with that. As for the SC, I reckon if it was not Piquet it would have been someone else, just the nature of the racing and the track, again if Piquet did not crash, the ferrari boys would not have had to stack Massa and Kimi in the pits, and there would probably not have been the chaos that ensued. Shite happens, it's F1 I've been watching it for so many years now nothing that happens out there is really a surprise to me. I must say I did have a quiet laugh though, the aerial view of Felipe driving down the pits with that hose hanging back, reminded me of a hound that had managed to get away from it's owner and was running away with the leash dragging behind. That was right before I burst into tears of course .........!

Oh and by the way, for the pissy worshitters who stopped watching the Valencia race because Fernando was out on lap one, here's a lesson from some of us true F1 addicts. I still sat and watched the entire race, even if it was through my favourite Johnny Blue tumbler.
