I loved it how Alonso came out infront after the 1st Pitstop when he was behind both Ham and Vet before the stops.Shame about the rest of the race.
Strategy is strategy, Hamilton's paid off. Just like saying Schumacher is doing poorly, even though his has been because of mechanical issues.

Hadn't given much thought to Webber, but yea that seems a logical choice. He has pretty much been a #2 driver. But didn't he recently sign on for another year or two with RB?
I don't think Vettel will drive for Ferrari. I just don't see it. Besides he is locked in with RB through 2014 season.
Leaves only possible choices in Hamilton and Perez. I don't think Hamilton for the reasons I stated in previous post. Button maybe? I know! Schumacher! LMAO!
Schumacher lol.I didn't even think of that.He hasn't earned the stripes with only 91 wins

True and Alonso's strategy didn't but I'm proud of him for taking the risk and changing strategy to a one stopper to go for the win and big points even though it failed.Atleast Ferrari now understand the limits of the tyres even more as Alonso didn't drive them to last for 52 laps for the 1st 35 laps of that 2nd stint.

Yes, yes ..exactly !!!...love it ... let's not settle on this position when we have Grosjean and Perez comming strongly with no more stops on the way and also having to fight Vettel back ...no no no ... let's bet on these unfaithfull primes and go for the victory ...great risky play and thrilling finish for all of us and for Lewis who must have been driving with the heart in his hand ... and yes ...for me also ...besides pushing the floor and moving the sofa several meters back to hold Lewis, Grosjean, Perez and Vettel until "I" held Nico back in the end.

Cheers

Glad to see you back GFG

..and you 4Mil ...back in Ferrari clothes !!!...ha ha

I'll bet Monty, that you'll be singing a differnt tune if Fernando loses the champinship to Lewis, by let's say 6 points or less!

4Mil,.....I don't believe that any one team is dominating the field right now, but the winner of the WDC will come from one of these 3 drivers, Hamilton, Alonso or Vettel. It will be a very intersting battle, all the way to the end.

Congratulations daddy..........I hope that you will allow at least one of your children, to become a fan of...Lewy!

Father of 2 already wow.That was quick! lol seems like only yesterday you told us you just got married.Congrats:)

Good question but it's too close to call between Macca and RB being the strongest.Ferrari have improved so much from the start of the year that they could end up being the strongest team with more updates in Valencia.Stefano D says he won't be happy until Ferrari can get pole positions.

Me I still haven't got F1 2010 let alone F1 2011 and only play TM sporadically. lol

I'm in gripking.I'm Visigoths that's me.I've signed up Maldonado and Perez so hopefully no crashes like they did in Monaco practise lol.

1 question; when do you have to set the pole time? can you wait until after 3rd practise or do you have to do it before a certain time?

Thanks 4Mil and yeah Monty and Lawrence should join and where is Bob?.It's a fun game that isn't time consuming.Only takes a few minutes between races really to make improvements to your team.

By the way the league is called Alonso Topix not Topix Alonso.Just to make it clear so it's easy to find:)
