In less than one day, the cars will begin to go around the track. Joy oh joy. Now if they can only figure out how to pass.

Hope the lack of driver aids will living things up...some good old crashes and wheel banging at 300km/u would be nice:D (without injuries of course)

Obviously the word "trouble" is a strong underestimation. It was very interesting (and sad) to see how much slower the Ferraris have been (if there would be no 3 times safetycar phases I assume at least 1 Ferrari would have been lapped by Hamilton)
Lots of work to do in the week starting tommorrow !

Sorry that you are all unhappy, being a Brit, I'm very happy that Lewis won, shame he's a McLaren driver.

The best result for me this season will be for Lewis to win the Drivers title and Ferrari the constructors. However, on today's performance they need to do some work this week if they want points in Malaysia next Sunday.

If Lewis wins every race and Ferrari finish 2 & 3 for the remaining races that should achieve my wish.

I can't stay up that late. Just saw the reshowing of the race. I stayed away from news sources as to not ruin the experience of watching it.

Overall a very dissappointing showing from all involved. Barricello is lucky he didn't kill someone. While Hamilton did a great job, McLaren sucked and put Kovalainen in last place for him to fight back to 5th of 5 finishers (still last). Nevermind a chassis, Ferrari didn't get a single "engine" over the finish line. Apparently Raikonen can't drive at all without traction control. To find a single word that sums it up for me "Amateur". That was boring at best. Just sat there shaking my head. I hope its just cobwebs from a long off season.

Hold your prancing horses :)

Well, I'm also almost as disappointed as I could be. But I think it's a bit exaggerated to say that Kimi drove like an amateur. Of course 2 mistakes no doubt about it, but it's alway easier to be in the lead like Lewis that to fight your way up the field. Anyway, Heikki set the best lap time (1:27.418) on lap 43 when he soon after (47) pitted. Lewis was close (1:27.452) on lap 39 and pitted on 43. Kimi was almost half a sec behind (1:27.903) but set his time on lap 20 and pitted on 31 and he had a quicker time the for example Nico.

So, even if the result was a shame I don't think that hte future will see a Kimi that can't keep the McLaren pace due to inability to drive without TC. I rather think he's one of the better drivers without it. The two mistakes he made had nothing to do with TC as I see it. It think it had to do with the fact that he want to win and don't play it safe (as safe as he should?) and drove with very small margins in Melbourne.
