Experience Shows as Ferrari go One-Two

The French Grand Prix was nowhere near as good a race as I thought it would be but the result was a little surprising, with Kimi 'Robotkonen' taking the win a couple of seconds ahead of his Ferrari team-mate Felipe Massa.

The most shocking moment came when Kimi almost broke a smile in the press conference after winning the race. Almost. Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled with the whipping Ferrari laid down on Mclaren this week, but do we have to be put through five innane minutes of monotone analysis form Robotkonen for every question he's asked afetr the race? Can't somebaody just turn his batteries off half way through or something?

Lewis Hamilton was simply outclassed on this circuit. I have to think that if Alonso had not started tenth on the grid then Hamilton would have ended up fourth rather than third. It's not criticism, Hamilton just lacked the essential Formula 1 experience for this circuit. He's still in pretty good shape in the World Championship so we'll see how it pans out in the British Grand Prix soon.
