I have some friends that would like copies.

I missed qualifying, why was Ferrari Penalized?

I'd race a Renault, but I would never own one of they'er cars. How can they Dominate F1 , yet build such junk cars??? I'm baffled!

I did not tape the race but can answer the second question.

Michael's had already set the best time on his next to last lap. Alonso was flying and Michael knew it. On Michaels last lap he lost time in the second sector. On purpose, so say the stewarts, Michael skidded at slow speed in a corner and stalled the car. This brought out the yellow. Alfonso lap ended under yellow and did not count.

What a bone headed move. The stewarts disqualified all of Michaels times.

Massa hit the wall in qualifying which set him back towards the end.

Well, I hope Michael didn't do it on purpose, he's such a fantastic dominate driver he doesn't need tricks to win!

You know JR, I agree with you about Michael, but this one looked real suspecious.

I think Speed channel is gonna

I think Speed channel is gonna replay it at the end of the week.

About Schumie, he stopped the car by the last turn. He was going pretty slow and then "locked" the tires up. You could see in the replay were he stears the car, twice, straight for the wall. In a nut shell it was really fishy looking, and I think the stewards made the right call. Now having said that I still think that Micheal is the greatest F1 driver of all time, but he was just trying to get away with a boneheaded maneuver.

It's always hard to reconc

It's always hard to reconcile steering motions on TV with a car that is skidding........he DID lock up the inside tire sarting to turn, then backed off.......after that, I'd agree the steering looked suspect and even worse was his stopping the car on track.

Who knows?
