It's pretty good. More chances for overtaking than Silverstone, IMO. Especially at Esses as there is quite a long run downhill to it, which would be good providing that the cars can follow out of Coppice. Then Melbourne and Goddards would provide a chance for follow-up moves and some fighting.

Ayrton took several cars on the opening lap there in 1993 (European GP). Can see it here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=PsFEjFf3QDo

I remember watching the 1993 European GP at Donington. It was a masterful display of race-craft by Ayrton Senna - one of the best races of his career.

Tomorrow's race will be interesting. I expect a battle between R?ikk?nen and the McLarens; Webber does not have a car which would allow him to battle for podium or even victory. Massa will have his hands full getting forward from 9th.

Also, it's likely going to be a wet race - (possible) demolition derby time.

Although they are going to Donnington it will have to be a new circuit for safety and track length. In 2000 they announced they were going to Brands Hatch, however it did not happen because of money reasons. If they do go to Donnington it I will only believe it on the June day when they were there in 2010.

I read somewhere else that one of the problems is it is surrounded by green belt land, which makes bringing it up to the required standards (deeper sand traps) extremely difficult.

I can't believe Ferrari didn't give Kimi new tires when they knew it was going to rain more in just few minutes after the pit stop.. but this means we have a 3-way tie in driver's championship between Hamilton/Massa/Raikkonen, and Kubica is only 2 points behind them.

I think Massa made a new record for spins in one race..

Race of the season so far!! So happy to see Rubens back on the podium - and Lewis, wow what a drive!!

Brilliant result. Lewis now leading a 3-way tie for the championship, second half of the season to go now!

It's wide open - and if Lewis drives like that again - who knows, eh??

Great race with a well deserved winner. Hamilton's drive today was better than anything I've seen in years. Schumacher at the Spanish GP 1996 was the last such mesmerising drive.

Ferrari totally buggered up today. Why did they not change R?ikk?nen's tyres at the first stop?

Massa was simply abysmal today. I lost count of his spins.

Honourable mention goes to Barichello. Getting the Honda onto the podium is one hell of an achievement.

as much as i enjoyed seeing massa spin more times than i can remember, something didnt look right with his car, he had the speed to catch the cars in front, came to a corner right behind and just fell away as the others cars took off out of the corner. any time he remotely accelerated he went sideways

The Ferraris in general had a problem, it wasn't isolated to Massa.

Massa looked quick until his crash on Friday. The rear end of his car looked very twitchy from that point on. Either Ferrari were poor and his initial speed was a fluke, or Massa was heavily compromised by the crash and Raikkonen was having a bad weekend.

I thought the trophies for 2nd and 3rd place were a bloody joke. Having the Santander logo as a trophy is pretty sh*t in my eyes.
