    i predict................ i might fall asleep for the rest of the races this season. im glad button is winning but its so boring none of the s**t changes on the cars help with downforce to increase overtaking and kers is a catastrophe of epic proprotion.... lol. Why have the FIA changeD it. The last two seasons have gone down to the last race. This one will be finished with about 5 to go:thinking:

    Just be thankful Bernie's medals didn't come in - Button would have basically won it already. Everyone is complaining about the small difference between 1st and 2nd, but it's helping make sure Button doesn't wrap it up too early.

    I'm predicting another Button whitewash, but I'm sure Webber will do extremely well here. If Webber wins, all the better. :D

    It seems Button is getting bored like us. He gave a chance to other racers. :D . Seriously i'm surprised about his 6th pos. Even Barrichello came 2nd .

    WD to Nakajima for beating Rosberg first time this season:) Good job, keep it going!

    Red Bull's improvements on their cars made them go fast as hell!

    Bad luck for british people, seeing Button only at 6th and Hamilton at 19th position. We'll see what the race will bring:)

    I think we should wait for Button's fuel load and race pace, the group in front of him has a close pace to RBR so maybe he can wait to 1st stop to pass them on pits and then go for Vettel, I think this is far from being lost for Brawn.

    I'm curious about what Trulli can do, I hope Toyota wins finally this year.

    Cya!.

    Nah we not sorry at all, Button still leading the championship and a podium can be on the cards :D

    Great time from Vettel though, quicker then Webber with more fuel.

    The fight between Alonso and Heidfeld shows what's wrong with current Silverstone AND Formula 1.
    The cars can't overrev is F1's problem.

    The problems with Silverstone are Abbey and Club.
    Those should be brought back to their original so other cars can pass on the high speed section in a slipstream to Bridge.
