OH LORD. My heart sank when Vettel passed Lewis, couldn't believe it then all of a sudden the commentators were shouting he passed Glock, was like shit, yes, get in, shouting at the top of my voice :D

I did laugh when I seen McLaren and Ferrari celebrating when ITV jumped between feeds and then the faces on Ferrari when they seen Glock dropped back.

Absolute epic race just need the same next year without some of the stupid mistakes and unfortunate decisions.

Great end to the race!

Was Glock losing grip in the rain or did he let his old friend pass?

Watch the conspiracy theories in the press 2moro. Ferrari will blame glock when i think that in the end his tyres had enough. (Every1 went for a long 3rd stint and dry tyres were very worn, and with the rain he had no chance)

tbh, noone I wonder why Glock slowed down so much at the last turn. He had those tires for the last 5 lap and had no problem. Then Hamilton gets past him and he accelerates to finish 6th. Give me a break, There will be a lot of doubt cast over this sooner or later, Massa should've gotten it imho.

think we got a good champion Kubica probably deserved the tittle the most as he had the worst car but i find Lewis a decent wc , also i just hope for next season that Vettel , Alosno have a decent car roll on '09

Glock was the only driver in the first 10 positions not too pit to change tires. Judging by half the ones who changed to the "better" tyres skidding in most places, Glock trying to go round a corner on worn "not so good" tyres may not have been a good thing causing him to finish outside the top 10.

Fantastic race, fantastic season, and the right man won!
No bastardizing stewards can keep Hamilton down!
And Podge... you're so clueless, bless your heart.

Glock was on slicks he was struggling to hold it together, you could see this as he tried accelerating after being passed by Vettel and Lewis. His back end was all over the place, he simply had no grip. Plus Glock had made his last pit stop 35 laps from the end so his tyres would have been terrible in the wet.

Glock did a 1min 44 final lap, now the only other driver that stayed on slicks was Toyota's other driver Trulli. Guess what, his final lap was a 1min 44 aswell!

No conspiracy at all.

there is no need to think Hamilton is a cheap champion remember hes race at Silverstone 8) , and as Billy 2 sips said both Toyota drivers had dry tires and could not go faster in the last round , remember Spa Franchorchamp past season :arrow: same thing happend Bourdais dropped from 3 to 7 and Heidfeld who went pits for full wets closed a 20sec gap and took 3e
