Yeah, he screwed himself by squeezing him. He should have backed off as he had WAY more to lose.

So glad I don't watch live after reading all those comments. Uninterrupted superior SkyHD coverage FTW.

That was a fairly boring race other than the first corner melee and the Button/Kobiyashi battle at the end. A few good battles here and there, but nothing more than a spicy corner (HAM/RAI, HAM/PERv1.0 and v1.1). Good result for Webbo from even farther than last on that restart. Schumi as well.

Very happy for KOB and Sauber, along with Massa. And of course, the championship is game on. We'll see if RBR can stay dominant.

On the gridwalk, Brundle said to Webbo, "A few crazy bandits just behind you." Then in the post race interview, "The guys confirmed it was first-lap nutcase again, Grosjean. Maybe he needs another holiday. It's quite embarassing at this level for him." Love Webbo! Shame Grosjean can't get it together because he's fast but we're beyond it being a problem now.

I agree with the Grosjean comment. He has very good skills and can drive clean and fast but he's been making these 1st lap, 1st corner mistakes that is more of a gp2 thing then f1. Similar to Moldanado, he's fast but getting involved into too much drama! And webbo did an amazing drive to get some points after pitting from last place!

Yeah, this was a small mistake relative to other mistakes Grosjean has made........but enough is enough. Who cares if he out qualifies Kimi........it's where you finish in the race that matters. Lotus gambled with both of them, thankfully one of them has more than paid for himself.

Webber's response was golden, my girlfriend heard him say "as you know mate i've seen plenty of action, nothing will surprise me, i'll do my best and uh... head down, ass up." and she lost it.

He squeezed Schumacher on the start in Monaco as well, causing him to break his Lotus' LR suspension and spin out at turn 1. Wholesale Jeans is at fault in that one, too.

Grosjean, no doubt has the talent and sometimes seams to be mature, but always somehow finds himself at the wrong place at the wrong time. It seams he pushes a little to hard in the opening laps. He should just give up the 2-4 positions that he would lose in turn one rather then crash out and take out champ. leaders etc and push more in the middle of the race or towards the end which the Lotus car seams to do best at.

brundle or kravitz were talking about it after the race and they mentioned discussions in the paddock about grosjean may just not have that racer instinct where you're only just making split-second reactions to get through the first few corners. grosjean admitted he was focused on perez and was completely caught out by mark. sorry but i think you need to be able to focus on more than one thing at a time at this level mate.

Yeah, unacceptable. You have to be able to watch your periphery while staying fully focused toward the front.

Hey who knows, if he had listened to sir Jackie when he offered him advice he may have learned a few things by now.

I also want to add what tremendous value Anthony Davidson brings in his (usually) rather brief moments on Sky. His analysis on that touch screen mega tv "skypad" is brilliant and his keen insight as a driver catches so many things that often go unnoticed or unexplained. Articulates it very well also.

Bleh, she's absolutely worthless and handily the second fiddle to the nearly as worthless Pinkham. http://www.zimbio.com/pictures/PuPVA...atalie+Pinkham

I've got several shots of Georgie just before she went on air at Silverstone, and she is NOT attractive. The pic falcongsr linked to has her looking decent because she's not wearing a kilo of eye makeup.

Pinkham gets the nod in my book. Much more like the girl next door.

Yeah, they cake it on Georgie. Looks awful.

She can't be that ugly.

Natalie is starting to look a little manly in the face, she was something when she was younger. Lee wins hands down. Georgie depends on the angle. From behind would be preferable.
