    I know you're talking about the current field, but I can't think of anyone who deserved their first win more than Jean Alesi. I was so happy watching that race.

    2005 season:

    Webber: 36 points finished 10th.

    Heidfeld: 28 points finished 11th.

    Yeah really did **** on him, considering Heidfeld missed the last five races of the season.

    I don't see how qualifying makes any difference to who deserves/ed a win more. Otherwise Jarno Trulli should be world champion multiple times over.

    Although I do know Heidfeld had a pole in 05, not sure if Webber ever had a pole before this race.

    He did not.

        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Think that is a little unfair, Webber has always been a talented driver and he is not been all that far off Vettel all season.
    Also Button is more than just a competent driver he has performed excellently this season, yes he has had the best car but he has driven almost perfectly this season (he has made far less mistakes and driven a lot more consistently than Hamilton did last season) To do this at the highest level is a skill that not all drivers have

    Same, was fantastic.

    I'd like to have seen Mika Salo win a race, but he was denied that...

    Sorry for being an unabashed fan of the formula 1 driver from my country, would expect Kiwis to understand.

    It's okay, I'm happy that he's won as he's my favourite driver.

    Obviously in relative terms (ie. compared to ordinary mortals and race drivers in lower categories) both drivers are very good, but as F1 drivers they are both merely ordinary. A truly good driver will shine even when stuck with inferior machinery and neither have really done that aside from a few isolated occasions. Even worse, they've both had access to reasonable, if not pack leading, cars in the past when they drove for Williams and did basically nothing of note.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't begrudge them their day in the sun but it seems a real shame that either is a contender for the championship in a field that contains obviously superior drivers like Hamilton, Alonso, Raikkonen, Massa and Kubica struggling in the also ran section. IMO, Vettel is the only driver in contention who truly deserves to be world champion - the man is obviously extremely talented.

    Didn't he nearly have the German GP in the bag at one stage, only to gift the win to Irvine (or someone)?

    Explains why the engine blew up every race Webber drove I suppose. Must have been too good an engine for the car or something.

    Team orders to give it to Irvine, yep. Was during Shumi's injury.
