Webber was lucky it was raining and the faster cars behind him didn't get a decent chance to make a run at him. If the weather was fine he wouldn't have come second that's for sure, particularly running light on a three stop strategy. Good result for him though.
That was a great stack between Kubica and Trulli too. I guess you could say it was Trulli spectacular.

This is the worst start to a season for Ferrari since 1992.

Looking forward to tonights race, gotta love one hd. I hope either Trulli or Vettel will get it, or anyone as long as it's not Button. Pretty funny about Webber though, that would've been really frustrating for him.

Ironically, they use Ferrari engines too.

I forgot the race was on tonight. Webber was actually unlucky this time. Shame.
Toymota should run away with things.

Button and the Brawn team annoy me with how good they are starting from scratch this year. I hope he enjoys his non-alcoholic champagne

Yeah, what happened to Webber? He was on the charge early but he just couldn't keep it up.
Good drive by Vettel, disappointing from Hamilton yet again.

Well technically they didn't start from scratch.
The car is basically a Honda, but because Honda sold the team to Brawn (For $2!!!) it is called Brawn GP. All the work was done by Honda last season.

The reason teams such as Brawn, Toyota and Red Bull are doing so well is because they worked on the car way before any other team. When teams like McLaren and Ferrari were concentrated on last years championship, these other teams were already working on this years car.
That's the reason they are doing so well.

It goes to show, with a good car, Button is pretty damn fast!

RIP, Ratzenberger's death is forgotten often due to Senna death the next day.

Tragic race weekend that one, and come to think that Senna should not have died as he was not meant to race due to RR's death.

Senna should not have died because his helmet should not have failed him. It was a tragic and bizarre turn of events.

It's hard to believe it was 15 years ago. How time has simply evaporated...

*BUMP*

Monaco GP is on this weekend.
Personally, this is probably my favouirte race of the season, not cause of the history of the race of whatever but the racing is awesome!
And I think this may be the race for Mark Webber. Red Bull will be very strong at Monaco so this is Webbers greatest chance.
BTW, if anyone feels like watching practice or qualifying, go on this website. www.rojadirecta.com.

Also, GO ALONSO

Monte Carlo is certainly one of the most amazing tracks on the calendar. Requiring an immense ammount of driver skill with the number of difficult, fast turns. Lets hope things go better this year than the rainy race we had last year.

What do people make of the troubles regarding the possible rule changes and team boycotts?
