British 2006 GP Winners Losers

Winners

1. Alonso. Controlled the race from the start to the end and did not put a foot wrong. It looks more and more likely that he will be the WDC this year as well.
2. MS. Good drive and took his chance at the second pitstop.
3. KR. Looks like he's finally getting the McLaren to work, however, they are a long way behind Ferrari and Renault both in terms of Reliability (traditionally McLaren's Achilles heel) and Speed.
4. Fisi. Good second half of the race. I loved the moment where his race engineer got on the radio and reminded him about Japan last year.
5. BMWs. Both BMWs in the points and ahead of the Williams. More importantly, they got the points without anyone from the top 3 teams losing a car.

Losers
1. JB, RB and Honda. WTF? Button Qualified 19th and gave a lame excuse. Rubes qualified pretty well but as usual went backwards. Honda are still a quantum leap away from winning races let alone challenging for the championship.
2. Williams. Really disappointing given that the British GP is a home race. Both Williams were disappointing throughout the weekend. Doesn't look good for Canada.
