I didn't yell for some reason which is unusual - I think I was too shocked and disappointed that Kimi spun out.

His title fight is basically over.

Last two laps were incredible, damn! I was sitting right on the edge of my chair Now I'm glad I convinced my lazy ass to woke up at 7:30 this morning!

Sad for Kimi, but the fight for the drivers' championship between Hamilton and Massa is still on!

Looking forward for Monza.

He brought it onto himself. He passed Hamilton and within four corners spun twice.

He was feeling the heat coming.

And that's quite a rare event for an emotionless polar bear.

While I agree he pushed too far and brought it onto himself, he definitely provided some top quality entertainment to us viewers.

Kimi fell apart but Lewis still had to overcome a lot to win and he earned it.

Breaking News: Hamilton has been stripped of his race victory. He has been given a 25 second penalty, pushing him down to third place and gifting the victory to Felipe Massa.

Enormously controversial decision, one which I'm sure will cause much consternation for weeks to come and potentially cast a negative shadow over the whole of this year's driver's championship. Just when people start to talk about Formula One for all the right reasons again, after a truly classic race, the stewards threaten to drag the reputation of F1 through the sh*t yet again...

That call is total BS, Hamilton did what he was supposed to do when he cut the chicane, he gave the position back and then repassed Kimi cleanly, then Kimi wrecked shortly after.

Unbelievable.

I'm sorry, but in my opinion, that is a pathetic decision. He was already side-by-side with Raikkonen into the corner, and allowed Raikkonen to pass him anyway. Raikkonen crashed out and I don't believe it can be genuinely argued that what Hamilton did was dangerous, unsportsman-like or anything else. He was much faster than Raikkonen in the lead up to that corner, had pretty much got by him and had it not been for Rosberg, wouldn't have had to avoid the corner anyway.

It's racing - or at least it was. It's a sad fact that F1 is becoming more and more of a farce these days, and if there's any way for the decision to be appealed, I'd say McLaren have a good case, but alas, if it's an FIA panel, i fear they'll not be too happy about it, especially if Ferrari have a quiet word in their ear. And to think, i was trying not to be too cynical until recently, where it's become so obvious it's almost sickening.
