can't understand why MS didn't change to dry tires. He'd make the pit time back in 3-4 laps.

I guess it's a judment call to be on the safe side since no one knew if the rain was going to start again. Some car went to dry tires too early and ended the day early by spinnig out.

I believe Speed was the first to call for drys...didn't turn out too good for him.

MS got greedy. Knowing Alonso retired, he was going for all the points he
grab, by staying in and holding as many drivers back he possibly could.

schumi did score a point cause kubica was stripped of his points after they weighed his car. i believe its down to 10 or 9 points for the championship.

For the most part I'm realistic to see the race for what it was, brilliant strategy, one hell of a drive by Jenson, some reliability and a little luck. I'm about the biggest Honda F1 fan there is, but this year Ferrari, Renault and Mercedes have better pace. Once the conditions dried up a little.. if you had your live timing up you'll notice that when Massa switched to dry tires, He did a lap about 2 seconds faster than Button's best. Now, oshp515 why don't you go back and re-watch the race, season and about 20 years of F1 and then we can discuss this on a level playing field
well, I can tell you one thing from what you just said that shows you are not the F1 god you think you are....Mclaren has not been consistently better than honda this year and quite frankly, Mclaren is the biggest dissappointment this year....looking at what they were achieving in '05, '06 has been a flop....so shut up and just enjoy the season...

I apologize. It was an emotional response. I was looking forward to the race all weekend, after watching practice and qualifying.
I avoided internet completely until I saw the race. I guess I'm lucky...or cautious

Well done Jense and Honda, I was really teeing off on you guys, I'm glad you took my comments as motivation and turned it all around.
