    I've been saying this to myself for the past few weeks. I watched a short DVD about the film that came with Top Gear magazine and can't wait to see the movie documentary. I would loved to have seen how he drove the cars of today - would have been interesting. Hamilton has driven Senna's old car and found it very difficult.

    P.S. Is anyone off to watch the F1 at Silverstone this year?

    Agreed,as Senna said "when you stop taking the chance to over take you stop being a racing driver"

    Driver aids are what f1 is all about unfortunatly, its the develpoment of in car tech to make them as fast as possible within those written rules.

    Dunno about you chaps but what sets Ham apart for me is the fact he goes for it no matter where it is..... most others out there only overtake on the prescribed areas, prob why he spends more time with the marshalls in fairness - I dont think i'd watch it though if it weren't for the potential thrill of Ham's overtakes.... hopefully these 1.6 units make it more thrilling, although heaven forbid the car be allowed to get out of shape - cue the health and safety brigade

    Ye im 50/50 on this. Ye Button was looking in his mirrors but not at the time when Hamilton begun to make his move.

    Im a massive Hamilton fan as you are to Tim but I think hes driving too hard. Vettels lead is constantly extending and I think from the last two races the pressure is showing for Hamilton.

    and the incident with lewis and jenson i think both were at fault. jenson should have gave him a little more room and lewis should have backed out as the move was not on so both to blame(if blame is needed) but thats racing

    Racing isn't racing without tryin to overtake - the main problem with F1!

    Try watching BTCC and they go for it no matter what!

    Seems like there is too much focus on H&S - very disappointed this weekend. The 4lap safety car at the start is appaling! If they are going to do that then don't race at all!

    So whos your driver of the day guys.

    Mine is Button seen as he had 2 bumps and a drive through. But best race for Shui, so wanted him to hold off Webber and get a podium.

    I was getting really annoyed because of the amount of laps behind safety car but it was so worth to wait till the end.
    Marshall falling twice in the middle of the track twice was hilarious. I couldn't believe what was happening after restart.
    Brilliant drive from Button, just hope he doesn't get penalised now. Wanted to see Schumi on the podium. Finally Vettel failed!

    Wow - what an end to the race, worth the wait for that one. DC and MB did a pretty good job of filling what was a very long wait, must have been very difficult for them. Well done the BBC as well for staying with it.

    I read the JB LH crash as a racing incident - however in those conditions when there was no guarantee that Jenson could see Lewis's move, when he saw Jenson move and take the normal racing line, Lewis should have backed off. My view is that Lewis was totally to blame there.

    That marshal looked like he was a mate along for the day as he seemed to be dressed in black and not high vis in anyway, I bet he need a new set of underwear when he saw the car lock up when it spotted him.

    What a race, and what and evening, 5 hours of f1!!!

    Cracking result for Button, deffo drive of the day.

    Another cracking result for RB too, 2-3

    The marshal incident was hilarious, bet he doesn't get an invite back next year!! lol

    I also liked Button's piss take at Sebby on the podium, as much as i have a man crush on him, that did make me

    Epic race! No other way to describe it! Bit slow to begin with but it made up for it!

    Awesome drive from Button. Another scrappy one from Lewis, although I don't think it was as scrappy as Monaco. I think it was his fault on Webber, but a racing incident with Button. Button couldn't see him through the spray, and when Button started taking the racing line, Lewis was already committed down the inside of the bend. Shame really. He needs to clear his head. He's showing signs of desparation/frustration behind the wheel now. Pushing the car more than what it's capable of. Just shows how much he really wants to win! Hopefully he'll have a cleaner race next time out.

    I really felt sorry for Shuey. I'm a massive fan! Ever since I got into F1 in '96. I literally went into mourning when he retired! So when he came back and it took him a while to get back into the swing of things, I didn't know what to feel. This was a cracking race for him. Shame the Merc had no answer for the McLaren and Reb Bull once the track dried out. He's still got the fire in his belly, and I'm hoping after this race it's become a raging inferno once again! I loved the piece he did with DC before the race. Laughed my ass off!

    Also felt sorry for Di Resta. Had a great race up until he started getting scrappy. Future champion I think once he gets a break in a top team.

    Was annoyed with that farce of a start behind the safety car, I like Sterlin Moss coments about H&S BBC Sport - Lewis Hamilton goes too far - Sir Stirling Moss Didnt see all the race but turned over to see the finger choke and button take the win, loved it!!! Im looking forward to silverstone and hoping the diffuser change is in place, I think its going to have a big effect on the redbulls autosport.com - F1 News: RBR seeks clarification on diffusers

    I just bloody well hope Hamilton doesn't move to Red Bull - proves nothing driving a faster car. Button and Hamilton are quality drivers; it's Vettel and Webber need to be put back in a slower car and that will prove something!

    He has a great teammate partnership and we know the guy can race, he's got the attitude (ok maybe a little too firey at times) but isnt that what racing is about? Trying to overtake? We saw on Sunday that Vettel can't race under extreme pressure and to see Button go from basically last to first (yes safety car may have helped) but the guy can drive and fully deserved it after Vettels luck at Monaco!

    Vettel is a good driver (better than Webber) don't get me wrong but it is the car it's a shame the cars aren't even such as the Clios at the BTCC racing. It would male racing so much more interesting.

    Gramted if you put Button and Hamilton in one of the lower down teams they may struggle but I bet they would still push their way to the top unlike others. I mean look at Kobiyashi (sp?) he did really well but the car just doesn't have the pace and same goes for Schumacher.

    The other issue is KERS and DRS - you may aswell fit NOS to tourung cars. I know its all about advancing technology but its not raw racing. Bring back days of Senna 12000BHP raw as **** manual gear changes with rear wheel slides none of this 'let's try and involve more overtaking by ususing technology. Hamiltpon tries to overtake and yet he get's penalised. I know it's a not contact sport but it's not as if he's trying to cause an incident, he's just determined to win.
