Shame, end of the race was a bit of an anti-climax.

Mark Webber doesn't think much of the decision to reinstate the Bahrain GP.

Good for him, but speaking out is probably not a good career move. :(

No more Bahrain at least.

More importantly - yet another great (eventually) Canadian GP.

Just hope the final result isn't decided by stewards.

i loved it .. haven't watched a race 'properly' in a while and did watch this as there was nothing else on.

can't believe that people are claiming that button drove in to hamilton - hamilton himself is claiming button made a mistake even.

no argument from me there - button had the racing line and was moving across as he should have done.  hamilton tried to take him on the inside in a non-existent gap.

button's cry of "what is he doing?" on the radio soon after certainly suggested he knew he was trying it on

Jenson Button, 31, is in a critical condition after being involved in a serious accident. Jenson was taken to Budapest's AEK hospital where he is undergoing medical attention. It's unclear what injuries Jenson sustained during the accident at this time.

Jenson's team is in contact with the FIA and currently discussing whether he is able to race tomorrow at the Hungaroring.


outside possibility button's website has been hacked?

Looks like Maldonado has got himself into big trouble at Spa, for having a swipe at Hamilton on their in-lap after Q2.

Clearly not the kind of behaviour to be encouraged, and he'll probably get at least a one-race ban, but his frustration with Hamilton might be understandable.

Williams are having a very poor season by their standards. Maldonado was in a position to score good points at Monaco, when Hamilton shoved him into the wall to end his race. Today, Maldonado had finished Q1 with the 11th fastest time, and was on course to improve on that on a drying track at the end of Q2, when he was again shoved aside on the final chicane by Hamilton, dropping him to 15th, and out of the top ten shoot-out. Subsequently, Maldonado appeared to give Hamilton a shove back after the session had ended.


Later: the stewards have examined the incident in more detail, and given Maldonado a 5 place grid penalty, because they concluded that Hamilton had contributed to the collision by turning into Maldonado. Hamilton received an official warning.

Japan:

What was Hamilton doing in Q3? Trying to prevent Webber from posting a time by holding him up before the line? :o
