    • Formula 1 2011 - Canadian Grand Prix Results, Mercedes Improves

      Well, finally a race that Redbull didn't win although they did finish in 2nd and 3rd. Vettel had the race but went wide on the last lap allowing Jenson Button for Mclaren-Mercedes to win. It was also nice to finally see something out of Michael Schumacher this season with a 4th place finish. Nico Rosberg finished in 11th place for Mercedes-Petronas and Lewis Hamilston wrecked so only one McLaren-Mercedes car finished the race.

        Whoa, whoa, whoa...Hamilton did not wreck, he was flying past Button who closed the door on him. I'm glad Button won because I hate Red Bull and Vettel but if you thought Button was doing well towards the end (which I did, very impressive drive those last few laps) I think we can all agree Hamilton would have done even better.

        BBC had a feature where Schumi and DC did the circuitwalk in a golfcart. DC on y got to drive the.very last bit back to the pits. That's where this picture is from.

        It was a great drive from Button and Schumi in the rain. They were dominating that race. Both of them were 2 seconds a lap faster than Vettel.

        Vettel recognized too late what pace Button had. In the final DRS.activation zone.JB made up .11 sec to have .91 sec on him, allowing him to use DRS. So close Click here to enlarge a thrilling end.to.a great race.forget.the.red.flag periods, remember.the fights. Awesome.race. Schumi was great in the wet, Button was great during the entire race. I would have liked to see MS take 3rd, but he could not re_overtake Webber in the end.

        In the results it said his car was out due to an accident, so no wreck?

        Button never saw him in the.spray when LH tried to pass, so he stayed on the.racing line.
        This made.them touch, giving JB a shunt which he could correct, but put LH in the.wall left of the pits straight. His left rear touched the wall and.broke the.rim, and.damaged the suspension, leaving LH to park the.car in turn 5.
        So, no.wreck...

        I don't understand, how is that not a wreck? He couldn't use the car anymore after Hamilton touched the wall right?

        Wreck=bits of carbon flying, lot of.debris. This was an exploding tire, a wobbly tire and LH stopping 4 corners later. No spectacle. Although the marshals tried to wreck the car when they tried to get it back to thepits during the red flag period by racing it through corners while the car was suspended on a band behind the tow truck. Mc L aren people were not amused.

        I understand it wasn't a big crash or anything but I mean he did wreck out of the race. It just seems to be an issue of interpretation.

        I was pretty amused by it. It was funny seeing the car swing sidways and bouncing off the ground. But when you own or work on a million dollar race car, I wouldn't be laughing either. If they caused more damage to the car from it, Mclaren should demand the race officials pay for it.

        Hahaha, just find a torrent to watch it. Although my personal opinion is I do not enjoy the race if I know the outcome.
        After my holiday I kept myself in F1 quarantaine untill I had seen the races I recorded.
