      Not a bad race but not very exciting. Good result for Vettel and a fantastic result for Hamilton given that McLaren for pretty much written off in pre season testing. Anyone who doubts the ability of the British to manufacture only has to look at F1 as an example of just what they achieve, the F1 Triangle in the south of England is accepted worldwide as being the centre of motor racing excellence. Even Ferrari relies on British minds to get the team running smoothly. Plenty to be proud of.

      Why?

      If I can build a patio where the rain water drains away with a couple of grand, why TF can't the builders/designers of F1 race tracks with all the money and technology build/design a track with adequate drainage???
      I think its outrageous that so many people have paid good money to see a complete load of tosh...

      The only good thing from that race was the winner.

      I don't know where you two guys are but I live not far from Montreal and I have never seen such torrential rain as we got at the start of that race. Having the best drainage couldn't possibly cope with that.

      Well done Jenson Button
