Here is a non Spoiler
Weber screwed up the start again and then had an awesome race.
I swear if he can figure out how to start he could win a lot.

What is up with him always almost stalling ALL THE TIME??

It's harder in F1 because not only is the clutch operated by hand, they have two paddles they use when launching the car. From what I've heard, the strategy is to hold one paddle all the way in, and the other at the engagement point you want when the lights change.

So they drop one paddle and the other catches at that point, then they have to modulate it for the best possible launch, but if the engine drags too much there is an anti stall mechanism, and I have no idea how that works, but it bogs them down massively.

Okay so I just got finished watching the demelition derby and all I can say is damn what a race, someone is going to have to shoot Vetel's tires out during the race.  Somewhere on the internet when I was trying to find the race to record I thought I came across something that said Button came in second.  Just goes to prove you can't trust the internet.

So who out there thinks they would be talking to announcers within an hour of a crash like Ham took?

Crazy and exciting

Once again weber screws the start and come in second.
I'd he can learn how to start he could win alot of races

The highlight for me was schumaker.  That guy drove the race of his life. Last to 5th. Absolutely amazing. What a way to represent his 20th anniversary.

Yeah Shu drove a hell of a race as did Jenson.   I think they have sabotaged Websters launch system.

Unbelievable race by Schumacher in Monza....
this guy was and still is awesome!
thumbs up for a man who is not afraid to keep doing what he loves the most, without caring for his image. he could have retired as a winner, but no, he just wants to race, even though he knows he can not win a new championship anymore!

Hamilton will be having Schumacher nightmares tonite...

Kenny, i am not following the FIA's rules, don't know most of them and to be honest i don't really care. so i don't know what you are reffering to.
personally i just like to watch the races and i get excited when i see some good drivers perform their best, like Alonso, Vettel, Schumi etc etc

i have a preference for Schumi, for what he has achieved so far and for keep racing despite what everyone else says..

HEY THAT'S THE STIG YOUR TALKING ABOUT!!!!
 :D
Kenny is referring to the double block which technically didn't happen since he wan't penalized.
 :drive:

I think the fact that the team owner got on the radio and told MSC to not do that again is why they were not penalized and then he got passed.
Looking at the video, I think he blocked once, then moved wide to setup the next turn, but with how fast it occurred it did look like a double block.

I was on the fence about Vettel, but he is such an amazing driver and a genuinely nice person.  His appearance on Top Gear UK was awesome.  He even made fun of Jeremy.
I can see Vettel being the next driver superstar.  At this point he already is

I was just making a joke! But I was referring to the blocking...

I want to see him do well. It's more car than driver these days in F1. But it took him a few years to dominate with Ferrari, so it could take a few years to get Merc going. I don't know how long he plans to stick around.

It's easier to make a car fast in a straight line, than to do what Red Bull have done.

Are we allowed to talk about the race yet?

I am going to have to tune in to one of these races... You guys make it seem much better than plucking my eyebrows, which I prefer over NASCAR now a days.  I could flip between F-1 and Golf if the Patriots are not playing..... 
When is the next show?  And where?  And is there a race in California I might be able to attend?  And Kenny, I know I could google it, but it's more fun to ask you.
