Webber has the *worst* luck in the world! If he were blessed with two penises he'd be cursed with four cases of syphilis!
James Allen said:The term ?hero to zero? was never more vividly demonstrated than by Sebastian Vettel?s weekend. He was outstanding yesterday in qualifying, getting eighth on the grid in the rain, Toro Rosso?s first time in the top 10 this season.
In the race he was flying high, becoming the youngest driver ever to lead a race and looking set to be the youngest to get a podium.
Then, calamity! He hit Webber, taking both out of the race. No wonder he had a really good cry in the back of the garage. I bet Webber will make him cry some more if he catches up with him!
Vettel says that Hamilton slowed right up and he was looking at him rather than Webber. I spoke with Mark and he confirmed that Lewis suddenly slowed. He was faster than Hamilton at that point anyway and was thinking about having a run at him into turn one on the next lap.
Victory could have been beckoning for Webber, Next thing he knows, he gets whacked up the behind by Vettel. Game over.
Sutil deserves that point too. He has impressed me this year. I would have liked to have seen the team put Winklehock in the car though instead of Yamamoto.
STR to appeal Liuzzi penalty
Scuderia Toro Rosso has notified the stewards that it intends to appeal the penalty imposed on Vitantonio Liuzzi after the Japanese Grand Prix.
Liuzzi was hit with a 25s penalty for overtaking Adrian Sutil?s Spyker under a yellow caution flag on lap 55 of the Fuji race, demoting him from eighth to ninth and handing the final championship point to Sutil.
The stakes are considerable for both teams since it is likely to affect their position in the constructors? championship and consequent television and travel money.
As a result of Sunday?s ruling by the stewards, Spyker now lies ninth in the standings with Toro Rosso yet to get off the board in 10th.
On Hamilton slowly down during the safety car, possibly causing the Webber/Vettel crash. Peter Windsor asked about it in the post race interview, he did admit he slowed down, but said it was because of the rain his visor was dirty/fogged up, so he couldn't see properly. He reckons, he radioed the team and asked them to pass on a message to RBR to tell Webber to hold back a bit further because he couldn't see behind him.
Don't have the full details, I wasn't really paying attention, but that's basically the gist of it.
Basically he was trying to force Alonso into overtaking him behind a SC car. I enjoyed that.im sorry but even though hamilton won, he was being such a **** at the start. i mean WTF he was practically brake testing alonso et al when he took over the pace from the safety car...
