I don't like to get involved to much in these kind of threads, it's a lot of mud throwing if you ask me, but here are my 2 cents...
After every race I see people rating the GP as a 10 and I wonder what is wrong with them. Yes, we've had a few good GP's, but they only become entertaining when a safety car gets involved or when the weather causes havoc. Otherwise it's still pretty boring, which I think is a shame. There are a lot of other types of racing, who are a lot more entertaining. If you like all the phoneyness that comes with such a commercial circus, I suppose each F1 GP can be rated as a 10!

It was obvious Hamilton could handle the wetter conditions much better than KR.
Wasn't that KR's final stop? Didn't he have another 30 laps to go after that? That counts for something. Hamilton was the right winner though! However, if the others hadn't made so many mistakes, he wouldn't have won with a 1 minute lead.
What I find a shame is that the cars can't be altered to a wet weather setting after qualifying has finished.
I don't believe Massa is as bad in the rain as his performance made us believe. It must have had something to do with his car set-up. Wasn't he one of the quickest when it was almost dry (but still greasy)? It would mean his car was set up for dry-ish weather conditions.
