Absolutely one of the best races ever with Lewis Hamilton putting in one of the worst performances of all time. He needs to calm down and learn to be patient. Just goes to show that if you can catch him to put him under pressure then Vettel is breakable.

Still don't know quite how Button won it considering he was 21 and dead last 25 laps from the end. Truly unbelievable.

The guy literally overtook the ENTIRE field!

Shame about what happened with Lewis, just being overzealous.


I rarely watch f1 but holy shit son thats impressive, is there a video highlights somewhere?
Rest in Peace SE13 :(

Was a great race as usual in Canada, too much safety car though! I don't know how Button finished let alone won, he could have crashed 5 or 6 times. Along with Vettel he's the luckiest driver on the grid. On the other side of the spectrum Hamilton's awful luck this year continues

If you can watch it over there.

I'm glad I turned the football off when the F1 got going again!

Valencia was back to boring worst :(

Wonder if the loss of blown difuser and changes to engine management will make the slightest difference to red Bull's utter domination?

Maybe the Beeb couldn't afford to have it full time for the next 6 years.
Bernie Ecclestone looks like a greedy little so-and-so but, at least BBC will screen half the races live.

As much as I love F1, the finances of the deal on the Beeb just didn't add up for the amount of viewers it attracted, especially considering it is funded by the public purse.

Another brain fade by Hamilton today. Di Resta did a superb job avoiding him. Lewis is immensely talented but an utter liability and danger to those around him.

I agree it was a drive through penalty but I don't think Di Resta had to go off the track, there was enough room for him to get by on the track by a tyres length which in F1 is loads. That's not a criticism as he had to react fast but I reckon a more experienced driver would have stuck to the tarmac.

BBC will spend more money on diversity bolocks than they spend on motor sport, drop all that lefty rubbish and they could have F1 and premiership.

Beeb is very left wing so is quite happy to squander our money on non essential diversity bollocks. The likes of ITV and Sky spend less on rubbish so have money spare to buy football and F1.
