What a disaster for Massa!!!!! Still, if it helps Hamilton......

I really enjoyed the race today despite Lewis's bad luck.

Yawn - I care little for fast cars - and wee boys racing one another. Who is the woman champion - or is the sport dominated entirely by men? :roll:

Why? Would you watch it if it was a wee wumman driving around a fast car? I think not!

Govan Girl bad news re Hamiltons latest win or not in this case:

Hamilton crossed the line first at Spa but was stripped of victory after stewards imposed a 25-second penalty on the McLaren driver.
The reclassified result strips the British driver's lead at the top of the world championship down to only two points with five races of the season remaining.
He had been six points clear going into the Belgian race, which was to prove one of the most dramatic of the season.
The stewards' inquiry was launched after an incident on lap 42 of the 44-lap race.
Two circuits from the end, Hamilton made a move on entry into the Bus Stop chicane, and collided with Kimi Raikkonen as the pair battled for the lead.
That pushed the Briton on to the run-off area and he resumed in the lead.
He then let Raikkonen through, fearing an instant penalty from the race stewards.
However, on reviewing footage of the race they decided to punish Hamilton anyway.
Raikkonen later crashed out as the wet weather took its toll.
The effect of the stewards' decision meant victory was awarded to Ferrari's Felipe Massa, with Nick Heidfeld (BMW) promoted to second place and Hamilton falling to third.

WHIT?!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm absolutely livid, Dunc, that is SO not fair! He was forced on to that chicane and because of his gain there he let Raikkonen pass. Surely that was the right and sporting thing to do?
Now, if I was a cynic, I'd say this is a definite ploy to add drama and make the whole battle for the championship closer seeing as Hamilton was looking so much of a winner. :evil: :evil: :evil:

I heard tonight that McLaren have put in an appeal and unexpectedly, Ferrari have claimed that it was just a 'racing' incident. Their support for Hamilton will be seen as significant seeing as Ferrari's Felipe Massa stands to gain most if McLaren fail to win an appeal against the (ridiculous)decision.

What with Murray's win and the great race today, it has been a fab day for British sport. Let's hope he can have another faultless victory in Brazil. 5th can clinch it.

Great minds Govangirl.....I came on to say exactly the same thing :lol:
What a shame for Coulthard - they even had the bagpipes playing Flower of Scotland for him before the race! Hope it goes better for Lewis.....

Too right Ags, you couldn't have made that up. Hamilton is pure magic. I have to say though, do you know what would have made that last minute even better? Murray Walker. I miss him.
