Canadian 2006 GP Winners Losers

Winners

1. Alonso. Top of the list of winners as usual. He is dominating this season in the same manner that MS just to dominate a couple of seasons ago. Kimi mentioned in the press conference that he doesn't care about 2nd or 3rd since he is out of the running for the championship. That is quite a compliment to Alonso and Renault this season.
2. MS. Kept the pressure up in the 2nd half of the race and was rewarded with a 2nd place.
3. Trulli. Good drive. Though the cameras were focussing on his teammate Ralf, they were for all the wrong reasons. Trulli did not spin, did not lose it while braking etc... and in the end came home with solid 3 points
4. DC. Good drive by DC yet again. Showed the world yet again that Jenson may have a faster car (in theory) but its still DC the top dog as far as British drivers are concerned.
5. Kimi. I was tempted to put him in the loser's list, but that would have been a bit harsh. Ideally, McLaren, Renault and esp. Alonso would have wanted Kimi to finish ahead of MS, but in the end it was a combination of a failing car and a driver error that made him lose 2 points.

Losers
1. JPM. What on earth was he doing? He didn't qualify well and he didn't drive well either. I don't think there have been more than 2 races where both the McLarens have finished. This time it was clearly driver error rather than a brittle car.
2. Ralf Schumacher. What can I say? Amusing or Heroic? Take your pick. Either way he didn't do much this race and considering the fact that Trulli was light years ahead of him this race made it look worse.
3. Honda. They started the season on top but have rapidly gone backwards. Yet another race of poor results from Honda.
