    Yeah, you've gotta feel for the guy. At his best, probably good enough to be a world-champ, but to play 2nd fiddle to 2 different drivers in 2 different (dominant) teams must grind his gears a little.

    Haha, yeah well obviously I wouldn't mind it, but it must have been a little bit frustrating for him.

    Well theres little shame in generally getting thrashed by Michael, but prior to this years car, Jensen has never looked dominant. I know there were periods were he was at his peak and Michael was relatively down where he challenged Michael, but overall I think he's been a little fortunate compared to some - or else has reaped the benefit of being such a pro as to play his role so consistently and amenably.

    Seba was flying in the quali's earlier. Have a feeling we could see another Red Bull 1-2 today.

    EDIT: Ugh, Vettel major league mess up and Button passes him.

    Vettel is closing in fast now.

    Bloody hell with Force India fiddling with their brakes the night before the race. Seriously amateurish to pull out like that.

    Is it just me, or is Button winning all the time getting a little boring?

    Rinse wash repeat, change name to Schumacher/Alonso/Hamilton and you have the typical line driven out for the past 10 years of F1.

    Stoked Webber got second, Could be a shout if Button quits racing.

    Avatar now by choice. 5-0 in the Ashes and all.

    The last two years have been great in terms of close racing (yes it was between Ferrari and McLaren) but the Championships went down to the last race. And Alonso's two were alright between him and Shumi.

    This season is looking a lot more like Shumi '99-04' than any other season after, Brawn's just a class above everyone else.

    Red Bull is closing the gap, though.

    Vettel is winning races with utmost calm at the age of 21. Look out.

    Anyway, I have a question: I was all set to watch the race on Justin.tv last night when five minutes into the race it cuts out and it says that the subscription is full for my part of the world. Pissed me off no end. Do I have to join justin.tv for a fee to guarantee a watch?

    Sucks here right now. Either I watch the races live at 9pm but have to search all over the web looking for a decent stream, or I wait until 11:30pm for Japanese tv to show a delayed stream with Japanese commentators having an orgasm over Nakajima. Broadcast finishes at 1am, I wake up at 7am for work, ****ed-up.

    What should I do?

    Was at Silverstone yesterday and Vettel was absolutely phenomenal - from a handful of laps in the only way he was going to lose that race was an accident or car trouble, no other driver was going to get near him. The Brawn cars just weren't up to speed yesterday, though Button's late fightback was encouraging.

    As an Aussie, it was bittersweet watching Webber - he drove well and his second place was strong...but it wouldn't surprise me now if Red Bull decided that Vettel was their top man and relegated Mark to team no.2, further harming his chances of ever winning a race.

    The other interesting subplot was watching the two-time world champion and the reigning world champion going hammer and tongs at each other - for 13th place. While a 21 year old in his second season nonchalantly lapped them both.

    Briatore really is a ****

    Renault chief Flavio Briatore tells Max Mosley not to personalise F1 row - Telegraph

    "I'm to much of a gentleman to get personal blah blah blah" but then proves he is a total hypocrite by getting personal (something he also did when whinging about the decision to uphold the legality of Brawn's cars earlier in the season)

    Really cannot stand a lot of the guys at the top of F1
