I watch that Belgium GP and enjoyed a great race.
Here IT WAS REPORTED the Ferrier Chief said "We are very disappointed for Kimi, who had driven a great race and deserved the win, especially at this rather difficult time.My question is why did he deserve to win?.Is it not the better driver on the day?
And was the rain falling on every one else but Hamilton's car?
Was that not really a test of the best driver?
It was not just about who at that time had the faster car....it was skill of the winner.
Was it not? Then was it not deserving of the triumphant one?

Like the Ferrier Chief said the race result is not until the final ...but that race was one right there on that track .
Not behind close doors of the F1 or it should not be in the Courts.
F1 must not forget the whole world watching and we saw it all for ourselves.
A simple yard stick to measure they effectiveness ....how is on show?The drivers and their cars or the F1 rulers?
I once heard it well put by a Football commentator..."when you go away from a football game not remembering the referee...that referee had a very good game.

You folks there at Sporting life keep the good work up.
I come here for all my un bios F1 news.
