    I had to go to work, so I didn't finish watching.

    Coulthard got owned harsh too. Colin McRae hit the wall in turn 1, but managed to push hard enough for a win.

    Then there's one guy who stalled off the line... haha.

    wow, i thought he would make it farther than that... im kinda dissapointed, but then again somewhat vindicated in my view that ferrari contributes more to his sucess than most people think.

    Most people don't get it, they think schuey is god and it's all him. They tend to forget that Ferrari (and budget) is the key to his success. He didn't get beat by much... like 0.05s or something. It was close, could've gone either way.

    Yeah, considering Ferrari has the biggest budget in F1...
    BUT they do make the fastest cars!

    Obviously he is an amazing driver or else Rubens wouldn't be so far behind him losing by a minute or so every race! A good pit crew won't cost you nearly a whole lap...

    He didn't start at Ferrari, obviously. He earned his place there. He nearly won that race with only one functioning gear in 94...

    1, On the track
    2, In the steward's box

    overall i think the show is great!!
    Loeb got beat by Kovalainen in the finals. and ther 23 year old won.
    MS got beaten by Kovalainen in the Ferrari 360 in the third round, what a joke! (im happy, i hate MS.. ). I also think that the penalty system was retarded too... hitting the wall = 10 secs, thats why MS advaned into the next round and got beaten by Kovalainen...

    You think getting beat by Massa was bad... what about this Finish guy that most people have never even heard of~!

    note: just wanna say the US commentators suck ASS, they mixed by Bourdais and Schumacher

    haha fuck talk about a setup for a French win! What a joke that final nations cup race.

    - Finland wins race #1
    - France hits the wall in race #2, but DOESN'T GET PENALIZED because "it's not severe enough of a hit". While ppl that nudged the wall earlier got the 10 second penalty.
    - Finland wins race #3
    - France wins race #4
    - France wins race #5 because the Finland F360 ran out of gas or something.

    It was Finland's nations cup. What a BS french win, cuz it was hosted in France I'll bet!

    As for the top drivers, they were all fairly consistent, but yea, that Finnish Kid Heikki Kovalainen, while all the top drivers were beating each other with < 1s margins, Kovalainen went and owned EVERY top driver by 1-3s! Talk about godlike status.

    The most amazing thing was when he ran against S. Loeb in a WRC car and beat him by 1.5s.... and this was Kovalainen's first time in a WRC car. 5 mins before the race the organizers were teaching him how to use the controls.

    A future star in the making.

    I watched it on HDNet. Watching the F360's tear it up in HDTV was amazing! Not to mention the synchronized sideways drifts around the last corner in the WRC cars .

    Maybe I'll rip a sample clip of the Schumacher vs Kovalainen race. He beat schuey by a full second, and it was one of schuey's best runs.
