Hungarian GP Winners Losers

Winners
  1. Hamilton. More than the win, I think he has set the scene for Alonso's departure. Regardless of who the WDC is going to be, (though its quite likely to be Hamilton) Alonso will not be happy.
  2. KR. Great drive in the Ferrari. Considering that his blow-hot, blow-cold team mate finished 13th or 14th or whatever, Kimi did a fantastic job
  3. Heidfeld. Great result for him and BMW.
  4. Ralf. Outqualified Trulli and then out raced hm. Plus 3 points in the bag
  5. Rosberg. Even though he had a weird strategy, it was a nice drive. I'm not fully convinced that it was right strategy, but the proof's in the pudding. Finishing ahead of both the Renaults, both RBRs and one Toyota is sweet, but to finish ahead of a Ferrari is Mega!
Losers
  1. Alonso. I don't know who started it, but its obvious that Alonso lost out badly here. I'm not a big fan of unnecessary gamesmanship a-la Micheal Schumacher. This guy has talent and doesn't need to resort to this kind of tricks. If he had not tried to rob Hamilton of his last lap, its very likely that Alonso would have finished 1st or 2nd. That would have meant 5 or 3 more points than his current 5 points. All these points will come in handy as the season comes to an end. If Alonso loses that championship by less than 5 points, then this is where he lost those points.
  2. Massa. The pendulum is swinging away
  3. McLaren. I don't think I will be fan for much longer f this continues. Hello Kimi!
  4. Trulli. History tells us that Trulli goes backwards in races. He qualifies well and then finishes a couple of places lower. This time, he didn't even qualify well.
  5. Fisi. What on earth was he doing in this race?
