"I crashed"
"Oh, okay."

They're just so used to it by now they're not even surprised.

I don't care if he won Spain, he's the least competent driver since Inoue and Lavaggi. Lotus are already short on money, the way things are going he will single handedly bankrupt the team and give Gerard Lopez a stress related illness.

McLaren trotted out a "special" livery that's just black sidepods with the SAP logo on them. K.

I've said it before, I'll say it again. The guy has talent. The problem is that he's too damn reckless. Take that out of the equation, and he's a very solid driver.

To be a solid driver, you must also be able to finish. The guys a walking (driving) disaster, and you'd think that after 3 seasons of penalties and accident he would finally realise. Unless he decides not to drive with his head up his arse, he will almost certainly not be given any opportunity to drive again. I don't think even his sponsorship could save him.

Exactly. The guy just pushes it way too far. He's a human wrecking ball. It's sad too because once you get past that, the guy knows how to make a car go fast. Too bad the racing gods gave him the need for speed, but not much in his brains

When his seat is up for grabs, then maybe he'll get his act together. Until he faces some kind of pressure for his recklessness, he'll just keep at it.

As Formula One Rejects representative, I forbid you to even compare his gloriousness HWNSNBM to Chanoch Nissany, as well as to say his name (and spell it wrongly, no less). His achievements are many and epic.

On a more seriousness, he might not have been good by any stretch of the imagination, but he was handier than Gianmaria Bruni, who is widely regarded as a competent GT driver.

Ohh.....oh that hurt. Why did you do this to me. What did HWNSNBM ever do to warrant that kind of comparison. The man that scored Minardi's last legitimate point being compared to Nisanny AND MALDONADO?! Come on man. Don't use the lord's name in vain.

Seriously? There were a ton of dubiously-talented pay drivers that came out in the 2000s (Sakon Yamamoto, Narain Karthikeyan, Christijan Albers, Alex Yoong, Bruno Senna) and you pick one who actually wasn't that bad!? Who scored a point for Minardi? In 2004?

Also what RRR and tommykl said. All hail HWNSNBM!

During the warm up lap before the start, Lewis Hamilton came to a near-dead stop for a good few seconds, bottling up the field before proceeding to the grid.

Then again, it's pretty damn easy when 9th place finishes 8 laps down, and everyone else from there on down DQ'ed, wrecked, or their car lets go. Hell, Takuma Sato finished on the PODIUM that day!

So did anything interesting happen past the halfway point? I remember getting up to lap 25 or so. I was fighting to stay awake but I wasn't able to. All I know is that Mercedes beat everyone as usual.

Due to a miscommunication in the flag stand, the official scoring has been reverted to after the completion of lap 54. The flag man waved the white flag and checkered flag a lap early, so due to the confusion, laps 55 and 56, which were affected, have been thrown out.

Meaning Kobayashi's last lap pass of Bianchi for 17th doesn't count. Happy Easter, Caterham!

Yes, pretty much. Any form of slow moving vehicle, so includes a medical car or a crane etc.
