He was robbed…

The race was great, with lots of overtaking, but at the end of it a very interesting thing happened. They went, in vision, to James and Martin for the announcement of driver of the day and James said, “I need nearly not ask you, but who was your driver of the day”. But clearly he did need to ask him, James thought Martin would go for Lewis, but Martin went for Massa.

To be honest, Massa did a better job than Lewis. Lewis was in danger of being caught by Kimi I thought. I was mega by rookie standards of course. But I had thought the driver of the day would go to Coulthard. I remembered, however, that Martin will never give a driver who doesn’t finish driver of the day.

The person who was robbed though was identified by Mark, and me, it was clearly Heidfeld. He was mega. That overtake on Alonso was supreme, and as Mark said, he’s driving a BMW and the McLaren had no visible problems. It’s not one of those fake overtakes when the other person blows up a lap later.

James’ point, no doubt, is that Lewis deserved it because he beat his world champion team mate, and yes it was mega. But it was a topsy turvy race. To my eye, Kimi and Alonso did badly, Massa and Lewis drove to the performance of the car, and Heidfeld and Coulthard drove the wheels off of their car. Sadly Couthlards wheels fell off a few laps too early.
