Best at running into stopped cars at a red light at the end of pit lane. Bonehead rookie-type move.

Call McLaren. I bet they'd appreciate your input.

We'll let the FIA decide, I bet hammy-bone loses points over that.

McClaren doesn't mind being penalized, they're used to it by now.

AAAARRRGGGHHH !!!!!!

Bad end to a joke of a circuit. Bad paving, bad emergency response (no crane for the Force India car), and what is with no victory lane? Crazy to see Coulthard on podium. Doesn't Canada have a better track somewhere?

Good for Kubica! Well deserved after all his fighting so far this season.

I can hear the partying all the way from Poland over here!

BMW 1-2 and Kubica leading the championship! A good day to be a BMW owner.

But what was with Varsha constantly saying this is going to be a historic win for BMW ... their first F1 win ... blah, blah, blah. Maybe the first for Sauber! Certainly not for BMW

Very good race. Sorry to see it happen that way but boy, some nice driving. Especially when Massa passed two cars on one corner!

Massa did the same thing last season. I don't seem to recall any of the same people calling it a rookie mistake then.

CONSTRUCTOR STANDINGS
01 Ferrari 73

05 Toyota 17
06 Williams-Toyota 15
07 Renault 9
08 Honda 8

I think calling this a first win for BMW is giving credit to Mario Thiessen, and not crediting their engine program, which of course goes way back to the 80s.

Actually, most stupid was Alonso. Had a chance to get some points, maybe even a podium, and tried for too much. That's a Hamilton '07 move.

I just don't get the fascination with watching F1, or really any other form of racing (especially on TV). To me, racing is a lousy spectator sport.

Participating, on the other hand, kicks serious ass.

I've got to wonder if Ferrari has some sort of illegal traction control. He managed to slip past two cars on the hairpin that was covered in quick dry because the other two cars were sliding around...

BMW has never won an F1 race as a constructor before today AFAIK, only an engine supplier.

That was an excellent move. It looked like the other 2 cars were in slow motion, great job Massa.

I cant believe what a bonehead move Hamilton made. Maybe his pop has been giving driving lessons?
