Is Seb a little self-absorbed? Maybe. But I bet just about anyone, at his age, in his shoes, would be acting about the same way.

Can you then give us a list of EVERYTHING that YOU like & don't like so we can all be on the same page? God forbid somebody doesn't like something that you do...

Talking Give them Push to pass and DRS, and KERS, ABS, TC ect.

That had to be the most boring race of the season! I could care less who wins.
Aloser Ferwhino, has a better car than Vettel so does Massa, The only reason he had any success was Fat boy cheated enough to make him look good.The German is just that good! Just like Rosberg is better than Hamilton, but ole RB is gonna equal stuff out so that Lewey doesn't fill his lid with tears

I remember in 2008, Vettel beating Alonso soundly in a second tier car. Sure, Alonso's a damn fine driver, but I'm calling bull-sheisse on that one.

Nice drive by Alonso (again). Put him and Vettel in the same car and Alonso would be beating him like a red headed step child.

Too late now. I believe the new rubber was tested Friday and will be used at Silverstone.

Mercedes will get a fine, maybe a points deduction. But the win will stand, I feel.

I have a pathologically horrible memory, but it seems to me that the reason previous Montreal races were exciting was because of safety cars, weird tire strategies or weather. This race had none of the above and was therefore a wee bit calmer, at least at the front.

I did enjoy Alonso fighting like he didn't at Monte Carlo, and seeing Massa move up.

I felt bad for Kimi, who proved the adage that there are horses for courses, which implies the opposite, there sometimes the horse isn't meant for the course.

But overall I felt gloom because that smug sap Vettel ran away with the win and it was obvious he would by the first pit stop. The young man would be more likable, and have an improved character, were he to endure a period of sustained failure.

Make it so.

Unless, of course, it's a talking horse.

Kimi Raikkonen on his Canadian Grand Prix:
“My race didn’t start very well and then my brakes were fading with the pedal going soft; similar to the problem we had on Friday. It wasn’t ideal but at least the brakes were good enough to slow me down for the corners. Unfortunately though it meant I lost a lot of time and wasn’t able to attack, plus we lost a few seconds in the pit stop which obviously didn’t help either. Most of my race was just following the cars in front and defending from those behind, so not the most enjoyable day nor the most enjoyable result. It’s been a bad weekend, but at least we scored a few points.”

Pirelli's new tires won't race in Britain

June 10, 2013




Pirelli will not race with its new rear tires at the British Grand Prix following inconclusive testing of the developments in Canada last weekend.
Formula 1's tire supplier has been looking for a solution to the delaminations that a number of drivers have suffered in the early stages of the season, and last weekend teams tried out a new specification that replaced the current steel internal belt with a Kevlar version.
If the teams had all been happy with the new rubber, then the idea was for the new specification to be raced from the British GP. But with wet weather limiting running in Montreal, and the teams that are happy with the current tires reluctant for there to be a change at all, Pirelli has decided that the new tires will not be raced at Silverstone.
Instead, Pirelli will introduce revised bonding procedures to the current tires to help ensure the tread stays attached, but may elect to trial the Kevlar-belt tires in practice again so teams can have another look.
"We are not going to race with the new tire as we did not get much of a chance to test it here [in Canada].," Pirelli motorsport director Paul Hembery confirmed. "We have some internal specification changes, process changes, that we think will go the full way to curing the delamination issue that we have seen. "That is good from many points of view, as it means teams will be working with the same tire they started the year with. But it is probably not good for some teams that are struggling with the front tire."
Pirelli has always insisted that although the delaminations are not good for its image, its products have never been unsafe because the tires have remained fully inflated in each incident. However, world championship leader Sebastian Vettel made it clear after his victory in Canada that his only unhappiness at the tires this season has been on safety grounds.
"The criticism we had or I expressed was not based on performance. I think it was based on safety," he said.
