As Masa said in the post race interview,thats racing.Your telling me if people did help you indirectly you would give up those spots to make it right just to prove a point?Please.Your not a racer then.Like he said,how things ended is how racing goes.I liked Hamilton in the beginning the 1st season and after his poor choices that cost him and less then diplomatic attitude sometimes,I could not stand him.Not because he's a brit as some have implied.I don't like him like I don't like Alonso the same as many didnt like Schumacher.Its the attitude of entitlement.My pick has always been Kimi,and there is no excuses there in IMO.Its racing.

Will they keep Kimi or will they try for Alonso?
You beat me to it!

How quickly people forget SPA, where Massa was gifted a win, or Fuji, where he t-boned LH, or Shanghai where Kimi had to slow down to let Felipe by. Sure, Massa had his engine let go in Hungary, but Lewis had a flat tire in that race. How about Monaco, where LH manage a win after getting a flat tire.

Give the kid his props, he deserves it.

We are trying to decide what paint job to put on our RC F1 cars based on which driver really deserved the title.

Someone needs to post a link to the onboard camera in Glock's car to see his last lap.

This reminds me of those pathetic kids at high school that used to say they failed an exam becuase of one stupid question they had wrong out of the 50 in the exam.

You do not fail a 50 question exam by missing one stupid question. You fail because you got a bunch of them wrong!!

The same way, you do not pass an exam with one right answer. Or in this case, win the world championship out of a lucky pass at the last corner.

Likewise, Massa and Ferrari did so many things wrong this year and their cumulative errors cost Massa the title.

Should either Massa or Hamilton have avoided a few incidents, then the championship would have been decided a few races ago. Simple at that.

Glock gave Hamilton nothing. He was behind Hamilton all race long and was only able to get past him by staying on the track with the wrong tires when everyone else pitted. Toyota called the shot, and they rewarded Glock with race points, despite losing positions to Vettel and Hamilton. He had none before that.

I can only picture in my mind what could have happened if McLaren would have chosen to keep Hamilton on the track. I would only be reading now a bunch of crap accusing Hamilton and McLaren of being idiots.

You win because you scored enough points throughout a tough season to get you to that position.

If you cannot hold another driver on the last laps it's likely that something is not working right with your car. Have you not have your car fail on you during a race??

You cannot be a bad driver at all if you put yourself in the position of winning the F1 World Championship at the last race for two seasons in a row! His mistakes cost him the title last year. True, but then he came back to claim it this time.

Give credit to whomever deserves it!

Just think about this for a moment...

Massa was winning all race long. Hamilton kept fifth for a long time. It was rain in the very end of the race that shuffled things up a bit. If it weren't because of the rain, there would have been no such big drama. And Hamilton would have won it anyway.

Then, it would have been extremely lucky for Massa to have won the championship because he was the one with no option but to win the race in the first place.

I am not the pick-up-a-fight type, but this time I cannot help it but refute something that does not make sense.

The so called mediocre talent is a group of elite racers capable of doing things the rest of men can only dream of.

This is not personal, just independent opinions and you are more than welcome to have yours.
