Great to see the prancing pony beaten for the second time, and two young lads on the podium. Well done to all.

Sorry about that, but we got to see it live on RTE in Ireland. I just assumed it would be the same for your lot. Must admit I was wondering why nobody else had posted anything about the race!

We got it live, maybe somebody couldn't get out of bed.

P.S. You really should consider changing your moniker. Littlegearl does look like Littlegirl.

god, great race, but its made me hate schumacher even more, the first corner knocking off of the enault and then bloody pizzonia in the jag goes and whack montoya rite up the arse, and if you look at the ariel view camera you will see just how stupid pizzonia was, and ruined montoyas race, i thought he could have had a good chance if it wasnt for the tw@ in the jaguar.

But, good race, and Raikonnen especially well done, its about time you got a win.

[littlegearl now]

oi!!! whats wrong with my name??? some of us weren't born lucky???

it stems from a nickname, and it kinda stuck so i use it online... and what were you expecting some virginal 15 year old girl???

anyway, about the race... i did see the post before i watched the race - but didn't look at it (couldn't be arsed to get up early)... so as soon as i saw coulthard go out i knew that it must be raikkonen that won, and a well done old boy!!! congrats on loosing your virginity!!!

also alonso impressed me and schumacher is giving me the (probably unfounded) feeling that he's starting to loose it, getting complacent and all that! - which is great!!!

WTG Kimi, calculated and cool drive from the Iceman.

Am I the only one that noticed Rubino and Ferrari cheering as if they had won the race?

Nice one Mr Gascoigne and Fernando you showed class today

I kinda think from watching the last two races that Shumi and Co are not content with the Mid Pack racing and that they have now become ratteled ? Nice to see anyway No red Forza's driving into the distance........sweet!

Nice to see the hun who's no fun not winning every single race [controversial]Has the golden boy of F1 lost his touch. Is he past it ? Time to take a 'why did you quit then' rather than 'why didn't you quit then' retirement ? [/controversial]

I didn't see the race but the result is absolutely brilliant. It made me smile when I checked the result (late) this morning. Where was Mr. Schuey, on place six ?!? The 'Rarri dominance seems to be broken by the rather small measures of the FIA. A clap on their sholders is due.

I think I must've turned over to he live race (yes I was awake at 10,000BC when it was on) at the wrong times, all I heard was 'we think he's on a light fuel load', and 'he needs to stop at least one more time', etc. etc. I found live pictures of a skirmish at Umm Qasr much more interesting.

Makes a mockery of the whining Ron Dennis then doesn't it ?

Ferrari have had a bad start but the bad luck and bad driving won't last long, but if it does you won't hear any crying about it from them, it's a sport and as such they will just try harder.

Bloody impressed with Alonso though, future world champ for sure, good to see the young guys coming on.

Myself, I thought the wild elation, whoops and arm waving with which Kimi accepted the plaudits and discussed the race at the press conference was a little over the top for a Finn

As much as I am not a fan of Shuey, I felt the stop-go penalty was a little harsh... I'd have dismissed that as a racing incident...

Podie, MS was definitely wrong, and has even apologised to Trulli about it.

BTW he would have been 7th if JB had not managed a spin on the last corner

Edited to add: Could have been a McLaren 1-2 if DCs had not switched itself off on lap 3.

He was definately wrong, but it was also definately a racing incident

I think the drive through was harsh

Roll on Brazil, this season could be entertaining after all

I loved Panis- car stops, so he just leaves it on the side of the track (not even on the grass), puts the steering wheel back on buggers off!!

Nah, Ron says.......

When there is no transfer of funds involved in the transaction, it s unwise to make an oral equine examination.

Translation = "Never look a gifthorse in the mouth."
