BMW SAUBER GOES 1-2 @ Canadian Grand Prix!

BMW took it's FIRST EVER win as a constructor just a few moments ago at the Canadian Grand Prix!!!

Robert Kubica took 1st place and Nick Heidfeld took 2nd, BOTH are BMW Sauber F1 Team drivers!

This puts BMW Sauber right behind Ferrari(3pts) in the constructors championship, and Kubica is number one in the drivers championship!

Also Kubica is the FIRST ever Polish driver to win an F1 race.

A day of firsts for Formula One.

A awesome day for BMW racing!

hahaha I can't even comprehend how much grip those have, almost as much as my Michelins! A couple weeks back I saw a figure that Felipe Massa was pushing 6.4Gs around a corner!

Awesome win though for BMW, FINALLY, what an awesome race today! I think F1 is coming back to Indy next year too. I'm sooo excited!

GO BMW

I'm so proud to be a Bimmer owner. Congratulations Kubica and Heifield on finishing 1 - 2.

GO BMW!!!

BMW is now is 2nd place in the constructors points with Ferrari in their sights.

Funny thing is I'm 1/2 Italian and I can't stand Ferrari. They are the only constructor in F1 that makes ONLY high-performance cars. BMW, MBZ, Honda, Toyota & Renault make cars for the masses while Ferrari specializes in toys for the wealthy. Any time they are racing with a Honda or Toyota they should remember they up against a mfgr that also makes mini vans for soccer moms.

it was great watching Ned Flanders (aka Mario Theisen) who was so so happy, you could really see it how genuine it was. And this is first time since Jordan 10 years ago that anyone other then the top 4 won a race (Renault-Benetton, Macca, Ferra and Williams).

great result for the team, and i'm more surprised that Kubica is leading the championship...


And Hamilton is a tool, i said this before but say it again. WTF was that. He is going too fast, and in last moment he decides... ok, i guess I'll hit Kimi! WTF!!!!!!!

it looked like he tried to swerve left, but it was sorta like Kimi two weeks at Monaco, hitting Sutil. But yeah, anyone who drives a Benz is a tool... oh wait.. that's me... nevermind. But yeah Hamilton major screwed up when he did that, he was on the pole!

Well done BMW team.

What a f#ck up Hamilton.

Great to see Ferrari in trouble too.

P.S.
As a Brit I hope that Hamilton wins the driver's title, though would be equally happy to see BMW pick up the Constructor's title as well for all the hard work they have put in.

A funny fact was Ferrari paid a news team in France, to record during BMW's testing and ABOVE ALL, their pit stops because they are so fast and efficient, and they want to know how they do it! I couldn't believe that... The Ferrari brain trust is stumped for once. 3pts behind Ferrari though, I hope Sauber can ride this wave and produce some more podium finishes, if not wins!

I got a tire replaced last week, and it had/has a stripe on it. I thought of the F1 cars when they brought it out. Perhaps it was an omen...

It was Hamilton's inexperience that led to his brain fart

Not exactly.

Lewis qualified on low fuel. His stop was longer. This is why Kimi and Robert were waiting at the end of the pit already, side by side.

Kimi and Robert were basically(there was other cars that didn't stop) tied for first at the end of the pits, waiting for the green light.

They were going to have a drag race down pit exit, when the kid smashed into Kimi. Hamilton would have been in what was basically 3rd place if that didn't happened.

It would have been a great race. BMW may have still won- Maybe kimi would have won- we will never know. However, the only known fact is that LM is a complete idiot. At least he will get the 10 point penalty for France.

GO KIMI

Not 10 pts penalty...10 position drop on the grid in two weeks....
so if he qualifies for pole...he will have to start from P10....

well...that's what he deserved for not seeing the red light....

Honestly though, what happened, happened and we should be celebrating the win instead of speculating what could or couldn't happen. The race may have changed dramatically if they were still in. Sh!t... Even Coulthard may have won it

You got to give it to these drivers though, the best in the world by far, and some of the fastest thinkers on the planet.

Kimi by his comments sounds not impressed at all. Gotta love how he pointed to red lights as he walked passed Hamilton.... Man, finally there is ACTION on the race track though, and not off, as I'm sick to my ears with all this Mosley nonsense! Forza Kimi!
